  1. ***OLD Thread Topped*** 1980 La Scala (THANK YOU to Forum Member snailtrax!!!) Went over to his place, "Down in Louisiana, Louisiana - Land of Creole Sues, Patois, Mardi Gras and romantic blues", Sunday & picked these up, after a nice listen to these & other gear. Serial numbers check out to 1980. Previous owner had stained the original BR finish to a nice dark reddish brown, with clear lacquer and had installed Bob Crites Sonicaps on the Type AA Crossovers. Mid Horns are K-55V & Tweeter K-77M. Have NO plans to change or repair anything working properly, for now, or run them on Tube Amps I don't own, nor play records on a Turntable I lost in 1990 & am not looking for, please don't take offense; it took me somewhere around 30 years to get over the fact that they are butt ugly....but, this set has had some nice make-up, including a Factory Top Grille...wish it were full length (but my wife sez the cats would play hell with that) & CANE (yes, I understand CANE was not a factory option, but I won't get rid of the original). Haven't really cleaned them up or gently tightened screws, although they seem to be pretty clean, have both original SN labels intact. Have, however listened to the Shiite Moslem out of them & when I didn't have JURY Duty, as I did Monday, Tuesday & ALL DAY Wednesday, working them out, even to late & odd hours. They are being driven, by a Denon AVR-3312CI AVR, using Monster Cable from circa 1991, when I bought my original kg1 & Klipsch dealers were pushing this type wire (as was Klipsch, at least in the Owner's Manual, I still have mine) other gear in my sig-tag. I have listened to them with Dolby Pro Logic II Music (5 Heresy II), RW-12d & km-rsw, Direct, Pure Direct, MULTI CHANNEL STEREO, STEREO with and without SWs. Like them best in STEREO, 2.2 & take back all I ever said about 2 channel audio; at least until I get more La Scalas, Klipschorns &/or Belles. For movies, they are wonderful in all forms of Lossless, I hear details on movies I never heard, and the Heresy II Center, circa 2001, keeps up effortlessly (until I can replace it with a La Scala, or similar). Don't have many pics just yet, but will attempt to attach a few. Last 3 are from Bill BEFORE we loaded them in the trunk of my car. First 1 is while they were in my trunk. Have another but can't get it to post.
  2. B&K Sound Type AA for sale, they have had less than 15 hours of use. I hooked them up and they worked perfectly but I have decided to bi amp my speakers and have no use for them. They are 10/10 in functionality and appearance. I am asking $250, shipping is included. SOLD to @luddite
  3. New to me set of Belle. Sold my Lascala last year, and been sorry I did so. Saw a set of Belle on local Craig's and jumped. Matching veneer, type AA xover...question: It looks strange... square caps, 2 sets of protection instead of the 1 I'm used to seeing. Anyone know if these are stock? Nothing like them online that I can see. Paperwork with these is dated 1971. Serial 306 and 307. Also, when I had the lascala, I bought xovers from Alk, and mid lense fastrac lascala from Fastlane. Is it ok to run the xovers and lense in these Belle? Providing I can fit it in there.. Any opinions appriciated.
  4. So I recently purchased a pair of old EV Georgians that have the same folded horn style as the klipschorns. They came with only the subwoofers installed (Crites 15"s) and what I believe is a pair of 2015 K-77-D's and pair of K-55-X's. They also came with a pair of AK5 crossovers and Crites Type AA crossovers. I am new to this forum and still figuring things out, what is your opinion on the AK5 vs Type AA crossovers? Does anyone know the nominal impedance for the K-77-D and the K-55-X? I cant find much information on the tweeter or horn driver. Any help or advice is appreciated. -Veaux

  8. I did not like the polypropylene Obbligato oil caps used in rebuilding my AA networks. After years of my K-horns sitting, I decided to try again, with a pair of Type B which I rewired as Type A in charged coupled configuration - this was much more to my taste, better detail, less fatigue - ESR on these old caps was fine. I first heard MBGO years ago in a Baltek90 speaker and was impressed. They may even be better than KBG (?) - they're less expensive and more compact. I think I'll get more for my Karlson projects. Of course subjective synergy may occur with different caps for different crossovers/drivers/amps/DAC, etc. My Heresy I are stock other than KBG caps (not charge coupled) and have beautiful midrange with an an inexpensive singled ended ultra-linear EL34 amplifier.
