I know Foreplay. They're great! Surprised Shazam didn't find it!
No biggie! We all love to see each others systems!
Sounded good, but let's see the rest of your system!
Very nice. I would love to get a pair of Infinity RENs one day. Probably the 80s. One of these days.
Thanks! Here is another where the entire system is visible.
Much better! Nice system and listening space!
this time it's 8x el34, 4x el84, 2x e88cc and 2x 12at7.
Sound and look great! I noticed you have the treble turned down, you feel they are too bright with the tone settings set flat?
Good catch, I forgot to move it back to flat. Before video I was experimenting with the toggle switches on the Fives with treble control. The video was shot with the DCM's playing.
Ah, I thought it was the Six's!
I love that Etta James on your system! And, if you didn't notice, there's a horse in your living room!
Just kidding, that's a beautiful dog!
He's one of those rare Woof horses lol
Got damn! According to the two 15" KLHs and three 12" subs in my living room, the iPhone mic didn't diminish your bass output by much... You triggered an episode of tinnitus and I'm suing! You did not exaggerate when you stated "clear teeth-rattling bass." I played your video back on my system at 61 dBA and could slightly feel it. If my wife, daughter, and son were not here and I had the preamp set at my typical 89 dBA for not-in-the-sweet-spot listening, I think I would've gotten a citation for disturbing the peace. How in the hell did you obtain that degree of bass output in your listening space? If it sounds that low via YouTube, I can't imagine what it sounds like in your home. WOW!
Your setup is stunning! Love the whole space!
This is a neat thread. I had to get a vid too. Not really a tour, but a video trying to capture the Altec horns and what (imho) they do best. I'm still fairly new to these. They aren't the most attractive, but in a musical passage such as this, you suddenly forget about all that.
That sounds like the perfect music for those speakers rollcentre, stunning
Thanks! That was full un-attenuated 811b horn. I don't usually have them running wide open, but it seemed appropriate for that.
Noise floor is a bit high there... Phono section on my mx110 with unshielded beyerdynamic SUT. I had it cranked up pretty good, honestly surprised the mic on my iPhone 4 could handle that. Probably like 85 db peak there. The blasting horn section did start to break up a bit in the recording, but in a good way imho. The was less "razz" on it in real life.
