    Thanks for the welcome. It's kinda funny that there's probably a lot of equipment now, like my Celestion DL8s that weren't really vintage when this thread began, but they are now!
    And I'll definitely have some questions for some of the other threads. There's a lot of differing info out there on many topics.

    There is a Thread called Introductions, on the home page. You should check it out and let everyone know you have arrived.

    Thanks guys. And sorry it took so long to reply, I've had a couple of busy days.
    Blue Shadow - I'm in Toronto, but next time I'm down your way I'll drop you a line and see if yer available. Btw, are you a super-hero? Cause I think I've heard of you. :)
    I'll go to Introductions now and introduce myself and say where I am.

    Cheers,
    Dave.

    I truly believe I'm more in line with my screen name initials than a super-hero. Ask many on ak or other boards I use that moniker and ... But no one seems to use my initials much, too bad, really.

    BS - now I see the point. I just thought your, 'I gotta get me a new title' quote was humorous.
    And your Dave Voorhis quote is spot on.

    I did that title when I was subscribed and after I expired I couldn't change it. I do change the pic occasionally. The quote is fairly new and completely avoids any arguments and keeps those that can't or won't accept that expensive stuff might actually provide a step up from requiring test results or triple blind test results. Folks can prefer whatever they want. Not everyone needs to agree.

    I've played around with some vintage stuff for a while now , and even though some people like too bag them the mach ones liquid cooled are huge bang for your buck you just have too remember to put plenty of power through them or they sound slightly off and room space has a big effect and configuration e.g. , on the floor , on stands , on there sides etc also makes a huge difference , I've got a pair and I put 370 w through each via a dj power amp and they loved it and brilliant sound big bass
