  1. The wire from 1982 in my CWs is zip cord, but no one would use it for a lamp since it is white with a lot of red and black markings.
  2. In this case it is about 2 (or more) conductor wire that can be easily separated.
  3. Do you have one or just thinking about buying one? How loud (spl dBs) do you listen and how far from the speakers?
  4. QAcoustics and Vandersteen have some info (note I have a pair of speakers that are capable, but are single wired). https://www.qacoustics.co.uk/blog/2016/06/08/bi-wiring-speakers-exploration-benefits/ https://www.vandersteen.com/support/faqs. you need to scroll down here
  5. Err, what? I currently have 3 tube amplifiers* (2 are tube rectified), my ss class ab amps are only used for a couple (hot) months. Came to this thread looking for some discussion on tube rectifiers (thanks @captainbeefheart), not someone to tell me how solid state is better and cheaper. *have owned many, many more
  6. You must be smoking the same stuff as the seller in the US Audio Mart link above. Asking/selling prices are going up on everything, not just Klipsch.
  7. Sorry, I didn't realize this thread is all about you and your opinions (that was not indicated in the tittle). I will move on now.
  8. "SS is better" ? It is no more than an opinion.
  9. AFAIK they have had posts that accept banana plugs for at least 20 years. I had a pair of Mid Monos a couple of years ago, nice amps. Mike recommends using spades. See picture. http://quicksilveraudio.com/products/horn-mono-amp/ Picture from a Stereophile review 2002 https://www.stereophile.com/tubepoweramps/581/index.html
  10. 6L6 is the closest. Not always a direct replacement since the KT66 draws about 50% more filament current. Have you tried the current production Gold Lion KT66s?
  11. If you are thinking about raising your budget....... Analog Ethos has some singled ended amps available as kits or assembled. https://www.analogethos.com/shop Here is thread on a Legendarium 2A3 build and some thoughts on its sound: https://www.audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/analog-ethos-legendarium-2a3-set-kit.1005719/#post-15846213
