    • Hello Pat   i told you that the two channel area would get you more traction. Lots of good info here. Wdecho knows his stuff for darn sure! And HDBR has been promoting the vintage HK for years and has made a lot of folks happy with his recco. Can't go wrong listening to either.  I chuckle at the know it alls that request drape color, ceiling height , length of carpet shag etc. as if any of that info is going to change their lunkhead perspective. I've seen the same people ask those questions over and over and while in the end room set up is important, I've never witnessed the serial askers of those questions make a recommendation based on that input.  If you have any interest in trying a nice single ended tube amp let me know. I have a Justin Webber (forum member) built amp that I am not using and you would be more than welcome to borrow it. Just let me know  Info is here  1 2 3 Previous Next Little Ben – Single Ended Tube Amp Little Ben was drawn from the idea that some customers required more than 1 watt of sweet tube power, but couldn’t afford the all-out nature of Big Ben. Little Ben uses iron sourced by the same supplier as Big Ben and with nearly the same sonic signature and bench specs. This allows us to bring a budget friendly version of a single-ended tube design to a larger audience. The draw of single-ended amps has always been realism and engagement. Little Ben is setup for clarity over crazy power. Parts selection was crucial during this build and each chosen not for price, but for best quality or synergy between parts. Output iron is placed under the chassis to give the tubes center stage. Rectification is SS for cool running and reliable performance. The amp is configured for ultra linear operation allowing great power output and minimal use of feedback. The sonic signature is deep rich bass, and soundstage to die for. Each amspandsound amps is built with attention to grounding schemes/ star grounding and use of common ground contributing to its ultra-low noise floor and wide bandwidth. Well paired speakers: Little Ben pairs well with most speakers 84db and above. Little Ben is ultra-quiet allowing use with full range or horn loaded speakers with efficiency above 100db. Speakers with can go cleanly down to 30hz really bring out the very best of the amp. Our 3 Speaker suggestions: 1. DIY Econowaves (12” and a 1” compression driver; great sounding 95db efficient).
      2. Klipsch horn loaded anything… Preference to Cornscala’s; (15” woofer with elliptical horn/2” compression driver and horn loaded tweeter with 1” compression driver 98db efficient and able to shake the house).
      3. DIY/ampsandsound bass reflex cab ~.25cu ft with Fostex 103 4” or audio nirvana 4” ~approximately 89db efficiency. Probably not for a big room, but gives low 50hz response in a crazy small cabinet. Wonderful for near field, offices or small rooms. Tubes: The amp is compatible with all 6l6 family tubes, including 6l6GC, KT66, KT77, KT88, KT90, and EL34s. The driver tube is a 6SL7. My personal favorite currently is new EH6550 paired with new production Tungsol 6SL7 driver. For new old stock tubes, I like RCA 6L6GC clear tops. Little Ben with (1)complete tube set – $1,100    
    • Welcome to the forum!  15 TB is a lot Mike.  I am just getting close to 3/4 of a TB.  You or Murphy could help on the music selection.  Even some movie demo clips would be nice since the ones that have seem to stop and pause a lot.  I do have a lot Blurays for demo.  Thanks!
    • How much for rs-52?

    • Hi Derrick I'm looking forward to this GTG meet!  I'll be there on the 8th.  I can bring a ton of demo clips along with Atmos demo scenes.  I might try to bring my HTPC with.   I have around 15 TB worth of stuff in there.
    • A price in the Heresy range but with more bass and the Tractrix mid.  Excellent deal!
    • Don't know where your located. But another member on different forum posted this... https://jackson.craigslist.org/ele/5800861794.html   Good luck. Hopefully it's close to you.
    • I've been drivin' all night,
      My hand's wet on the wheel
      There's a voice in my head
      That drives my heel
      It's my baby callin',
      Says: I need you here
      And it's a half past four
      And I'm shifting gear When she is lonely
      And the longing gets too much
      She sends a cable
      Coming in from above
      Don't need a phone at all We've got a thing that's called Radar Love
      We've got a wave in the air,
      Radar Love The radio's playing some forgotten song
      Brenda Lee's "Coming On Strong"
      The road has got me hypnotized
      And I'm speeding into a new sunrise When I get lonely,
      And I'm sure I've had enough
      She sends her comfort,
      Comin' in from above
      Don't need a letter at all We've got a thing that's called Radar Love
      We've got a line in the sky,
      Radar Love No more speed, I'm almost there
      Gotta keep cool now, gotta take care
      Last car to pass, here I go
      And the line of cars drove down real slow And the radio played that forgotten song
      Brenda Lee's "Coming On Strong"
      And the newsman sang his same song
      One more radar love is gone When I get lonely and I'm sure I've had enough
      She sends her comfort, coming in from above
      We don't need no letter at all We've got a thing that's called Radar Love
      We've got a line in the sky
      We've got a thing that's called Radar Love
      We've got a thing that's called,
      Radar Love
    • My vote goes to the RF-3. Wasn't on the list but is a very close relative of the ones listed. A mighty fine speaker.
    • The people that cross the double white line from the fast lane into the HOV lane are the worst. I hate going 75 mph in the clear HOV and have some idiot going 3 mph in traffic suddenly merge over and you have to slam the breaks not to hit him. It happens all the time in UT on I-15.
