      Hi baco. I guess that I'm going to pass on the Adcom for now. A couple guys have told me that I'm not really going to see much of a difference in power with just 30w more. Going to hold out for a while. Thanks !

        I respectfully disagree. It's not about the power necessarily. It's about the characteristic of the sound. But not a problem at all. I hope you find what you are looking for!

      Foam surround looks perfect. I'm going to snug up the mounting screws and hope for the best. Regardless, if you want to part with a woofer, just let me know.
      Thanks for the fast reply!

        Hi! I don't have any more of these woofers. Try starting a "Conversation " with AK member named "loonze". Patrick has my old 15s.

      Hello. I'm new to this forum and wanted to reach out to you in regards to a post you made about having a 15" woofer available for an Acoustic Research Hi Res Series AR1. I'm the proud original owner of a pair and it seems that a woofer is beginning to fail. I replaced one already and regret that I didn't buy two when they were still available.
      Thank you for your consideration.

        Hi! Those woofers have 4" voice coils and are very well made. I doubt the woofer is failing on you. Likely that the foam surrounds have deteriorated. A simple foam replacement will make them good as new again.

      Hello Brian!
      I saw you made reference to 300 (!) tweeters.
      If these are replacements for DCM TF-600s, I'm thinking of rebuilding my pair. What would you charge per tweeter?
      Thanks in advance,

        Hi! I sold all of these to Parts Express some time ago. There's an Audax Mylar film tweeter that will work well for the TF600 rear firing replacements.

      Hi Brian, my buddy Tom in RI suggested I contact you about my new/old pair of ADS L1590 (not 2nd) that I just acquired. They're not perfect, missing grills and probably need a recap, but the first repair seems to be very quiet or dead midranges. Do you have any advice about that? I can send them out to Richard So in AZ but I thought I'd check with you first and poke around with it before doing that. Thanks, -Joseph Amante (RI)

        Hi Joseph. Sorry I am just seeing this message. Send me a message via a "Conversation" and this will be easier. Thanks!

      BTW I ended up getting that Bedini 200/200 amp along with a pile of other gear from the guy in Kalamazoo that was using your picture of the Conrad Johnson's.
      I spoke with John Bedini and I'm sending it to him soon for service. I can't wait to hear that beast !

      I have never had any DBX gear and have heard great things about them.

      Could you do $400 shipped to 49022 ?

      Thanks for the consideration,

      Hi,

      I read your DQ-10 thread several times and I find it very informative. A re-cap is pretty much on my mind but as both of my two sets sound very good stock, I want to be absolutely sure that there will be a perceptible improvement in the sound. Is it really worth the time and expense? Also, if I'll proceed with the re-cap, wouldn't it be easier if I'll just clip the old caps, leaving most of the legs to solder the new caps to?
      Thank you.

      Nick

      Hi - just a quick question - I might be able to go and pick up a pair of Kef Reference Three~Two today for a real steal of a price.. The wife reAlly wants me to have my time and hands free to work on fixing up our house lol and is pushing me to get these instead of spending a whole lot of time on the 104/2's but it feels like cheating lol.. Have you ever heard these? I am so in love with the 104/2's but this is tempting =S

      I don't know if I'm sending this to the right person; I'm sure you'll be able to tell me if I've got it wrong. Anyway, it was suggested to me that you're the person I should ask when it comes to fixing the dust cap on a Vandersteen 2ce. More specifically, I was told you were the expert when it came to a Vandersteen restoration. Have I the right guy?

      Hey Buddy,
      I am just getting around to servicing the 3 TT's.
      I got the Dual 1212 working nice. I had to rebuild the motor and idler, and a lot of re-lubing because of frozen linkages.
      The KLH is working very nice as well. Cleaned it and lubed it up and put I put a new AT cartridge in it.
      I am now working on the dual CS 505-2. I rebuit the motor and got it working. Freed up a linkage that was preventing the micro switch from engaging and allowing the motor to turn. There is a special round belt with teeth on the inside that is part of the pitch mechanism missing. Do you maybe have this round belt with teeth on the inside?? It wasn't in the unit.
      I am trying to limit what I need to buy for this unit. I need to phono connectors as the original are bad. I need the drive belt as it is worn. I need a stylus as it is pretty worn.
      If you had this special belt it can help me. I have found some on Ebay, but they are from Germany, and will cost $15 to $20, which I would like to avoid.
