  1. Build a second set of Type As to compare. Keep both and enjoy. Use Banana plugs for quick swap out. Yea but doesn't the resistor just burn up some of that low power?
  2. Does anyone here have experience with obtaining internet service where there is no provder? Satellite, cell phone? 40 mb up and 10 mb down is preferred as a baseline.
  3. He is thinking 'Why do they want $50 to giver my white paper back.' To the Wilson bashers, if you have ever heard them set up properly, Wilson has accomplished something impressive with low distortion. It is almost eerie how they sound. I would not buy them, but they do accomplish a unique sound with so much distortion gone that you didn't even realize was there.
  4. Cheech and Chong high. High as a witch doctor.
  5. No, I would not buy the RF7s. I don't have the room and have too many speakers. And I am sure that all of my current speakers would also sound bad with that harsh early CD player. If I didn't have speakers then yes, I would consider the RF7s.
  6. Is there enough veneer to sand the damage out and is someone willing to spend the time to restore these?
  7. Grew up with Bose 601 series 1 in the house. Never realized how bad they were until I bought new JBL L60T's in 1989. They imaged! Bough RF7's in the late 90s and then took them back. Too harsh but I now realize that it was my CD Player. Second real speakers, Tigerwood Klipschorns about 13 years after buying the JBLs. Ye ha!
  8. So I have the nice high quality and I think sealed caps in a paid of JBL Centuries. At 50 years old I think they need to be replaced even if they can last long. I need to replace the L Pads anyway.
  9. Wow, nice equipment. McIntosh seeks to be a favorite and might be what the dealer had.
  10. There was a maniac on this forum back in about 2004 who bought brand new K Horns and then replaced everything. Wonder whatever happened to him....

    Never say never but we are an ant on a sheet of paper trying to understand height that has never been experienced by us. Einstein added the fourth dimension of time (which we at least comprehend) in his thought experiments and look how far he got. What do you do with eleven dimensions if that is the actual number? I have also heard 26. Someone who sees the world like a Picasso painting might be able to understand this.

    He rejected it didn't he? If anyone he had the ability to comprehend it as well as anyone can possibly understand it, but didn't he call it spooky or something like that?

    Nobel prize ahead. 👍 I don't think that anyone actually understands Quantum Mechanics.
  14. Oh man, I have sealed caps in JBL L100s, thought I was ok until I realized that they are 50 years old. Time for new ones.
  15. I saw that before. I thought that it was strange that they do not list the driver size.
  16. See what happens when I assume. They looked cheap with the black finish. I knwo that the lower CF series are not really sought after. Are these speakers with 8" woofers desirable? If they have decent bass this looks like a good deal. Pricing similar to the lower CF series.
  17. BFE, there are 2500 people who beg to differ. They have a county recorder's office AND a gas station. I have been there, drove past it and had to turn around. Seriously. Look, 10 things to do, which really looks like one thing, walk around and look at stuff that happens to be there. https://www.tonopahnevada.com/things-to-do/
  18. I really like JBL speakers, but not their cheap Best Buy types. These looks cheaply made. That said, I have a pair of LX55's that actually are decent and similar to L100s.
  19. These are a 4 hour drive north from Las Vegas and a mere 8 hours from Phoenix.
  20. His last ad said how these 'destroy' those crappy Klipsch speakers. Not sure how a speaker can destroy another but he was asking $750, now $400 no more mention of Klipsch. Cheap finish on these. 8" woofers so maybe similar to CF 2s or 1s. https://inlandempire.craigslist.org/ele/d/pomona-vintage-jbl-sva-1800-speakers/7336209251.html
  21. Per the ad: Last price was $4K and prices are going up not down. Anyone want a left shoe?
  22. Even though this is really hot, we are prepared for this, our homes are designed for it, and it is not a big deal. 97 degrees with humidity and no AC. People can die. Stay safe.
  23. Now those are some stylish Jubilee clones. Beautiful. I keep thinking the new ones being offered by Klipch are going to tank because they are not pretty or stylish in any manner. Someone paying $35K wants their speaker to look like yours. Job well done.
