      HI Pete,

      My name is Kevin. You helped me out a while back suggesting speakers with my Sansui AU-x701. Thanks so much for your input.
      I am back in the market for speakers. I was wondering if you were still happy with your ELITE Aesthet 1 MK II speakers? I have to fly to Hong Kong every few months and might pick up a pair next time I am there. They're going for about $738USD.

        Hi Kevin! Nice to hear from you.

        Yes, I still consider the Elites to be superb speakers for the money. I am using them to voice the modifications for an older set of speakers at the moment, as the Elites measure so flat! The Elites won't be going anywhere any time soon!! I do think that they are hard to beat for the money.

        Good solid stands are a must.

        cheers,
        Pete

      I'm new to AK and I have some questions about a CA-1010 I just aquired. It needs some restoration. I'm in Minneapolis MN. Just wondering what my options are and what it might cost to get it restored. Thanks!

        Hi there,

        I'm unfamiliar with US restoration options as I'm located in Australia, and the associated costs vary significantly between the two countries.

        There are some good techs in the Yamaha section of the forum who may be able to assist.

        Cheers
        Pete

      Hi Pete_Mac,
      I have not logged in for a long time. Will be in Sydney next week (have some family there). If it's ok, would be great to visit you and see some of your Sansui gems. Have recapped the Kenwood KA501. Not started on the 217 yet.
      Cheers and look fwd to hearing from you
