  1. I've installed about 3/4 of the acoustical room treatments and temporarily placed speakers in the room. The 396s got hooked-up and sound pretty good. It was nice to spend a few hours with some music. I cleaned the JFL 2A3s a bit and will hook them up to the Khorns tomorrow. It's been an 18 month remodel in the house, but I'm starting to get some use out of it, even though it's still a few weeks from completion.

  2. Dee did some tube rolling with that Peach, but he didn't have any upgrades done to it. I've posted before that the first time I met Dean he was soldering on that Peach at Dee's house at a Scott, AR gathering. Dee and I had several conversations about tubes in a Peach. I have no idea, of course, what tubes are in it now.

  3. You need to hear them for yourself. I have IIIs and a couple of pairs of LaS, and they have very different sound signatures. I also have Khorns and quite a few others, including 396s. The new LaS are magnificent speakers. Plan a road trip and find out for yourself.

  4. I tried a post a long while ago about rust on the transformer and got zero responses. I just need to clean dust and dirt, but if you have a suggestion for the rust on the transformer, post it, too.

  6. I'll soon reoccupy the music room in my house next door. The walls have two layers of 1/2" sheetrock covered with two layers of 1/2" commercial soundboard, with carpeting and acoustical ceiling tile. I've been waiting for a roofer for almost six months, and finally, the nail gun is popping in the background. We've had to wait to finish putting down the hardwood floor in the living room and to paint the walls and retile spots in the music room ceiling due to leaks. I still haven't even hooked-up the 396s, 362s and sub that I got about a year ago. I'll use either my 201s or 250s in the center. The Khorns will go over there for two channel.

    I'm still a couple of months of work away, but a lot less frustrated than I have been.
