    The harvards will be great with the V8X, in the meantime till you find other speakers :banana:

    Hi Clean,
    Noticed the shorting pins were missing on the eq/preamp out were missing in your pictures. Find some jumper pins. I dont have any EQ, but i had some in the past ( not a good branded ones, they boost the sound).

    I love your V8X photos :grnbounce , really looks awesome in silver.

    I am impressed the harvards can go to 11 0'clock. I keep my V8X around volume 2. As long as the specs and the woofer are suited to the box, it could be an option, or wait till some speakers show up on craigslist etc

    yea the 11 o'clock on the harvards was just so i could get a reference i play at around 9'oclock.that is plenty loud.compared to same volume for my pioneer was 11 or 12 o'clock and it was rated at 90 watts,that is how i know this v8x has immediate power.

    will the rca cables be ok untill i get some jumper pins to close those ports with?

    The Harvards will be great till you find more speakers. 9 o'clock is where I play my V8X also, plenty of volume there. I think Technics were conservative with their power ratings also. The RCAs will be fine till you find some jumper pins.

    I know this is an old topic, sorry for resurrecting it, but i found it helpful. I'm an old loyal (and former) Technics owner and loved the several units I've owned back in the 80s/90s. I haven't owned a dedicated system in over 20 years. This thread was a good stepping on point for me to rediscover Technics. It was the first unit I bought as a teen. I still have my old Technics branded cabinet that my very first unit came in which I'm going to clean up and use for the new system.
