    Well, I finally came to a verbal agreement with the little lady. We will be converting the spare bedroom into a part office/ listening room. Just waiting for snow to be all melted. My neighbors kid will take the bedroom set and then I can finally begin. I hope to have some pictures fairly soon. I think her main sticking point are the size of the Bozak speakers. Unfortunately for her I'm not budging on them. Thank's for checking on me.

    Very nice. I’ll bet they sound great. This is my office setup. My brother is a woodworker and is making me a walnut cabinet for the 5010B. I replaced the motor and belts on his Marantz 5010 deck, so he’s building the cabinet in return. F0331E30-D472-4A03-BD82-A0D902C68248.jpeg

    the receiver only puts out 17 watts per channel in 4x17 mode so you need pretty efficient speakers for it to drive them. Are you switching the power mode switch in the rear to 2x40 watts per channel with the bigger drivers that should drive some pretty decent speakers in stereo.

    Yes, I only use the 2 x 40 setting. Don't get me wrong, I do like it and it does a decent job when I pair it up with the correct speakers. I have a couple of big Kenwoods that can handle the 15" Altecs that I am quite fond of. The Kenwoods get majority air time.

    Had my 2238B on the bench today for a cleaning. Only the balance pot was a bit scratchy, but cleaned them all while it was apart. Now it sounds like 1978 all over again.
