    Andre: thanks for fixing the link. Can't quite read the speaker logo. How does your 7100 work with them? Do your limit lights come on?

    Hi!
    The speakers are custom. Originally were Technics. But I modified them upgrading with morel tweeter, jbl midrange and with the double woofer, I left the 12” operational and the 10” as radiator. All ports were closed. Regarding the limits light doesnt turn on, i guess my ear will get hurts before a limit light turn on. Btw i am using the avergage voltage (2.5) set up by McIntosh.

    The speakers sound interesting, Andre. By using the average voltage set by McIntosh, I assume you mean you have the input level controls set to the middle of the adjustment range.

    Correct!
    About the speaker i made an isolated internal box for the midrange. My turntable is custom too. The one in the picture is my old uturnaudio that is not longer exist.

    Hugo454: Like your Technics SL 110 with SME arm. Looks like you changed the feet. What cartridge are you using? I have a SL 1100a with stock arm and feet. Using a Shure M97xe with an SAS stylus on order from LP Gear.

    Nice amp. One of the mainstays of vintage MAC transistor tech. Nice TT collection also.

    Smokering: A nice clean setup. Esp like your Empire 398. Have a 598 myself. Dont know what you will do with the 104 EQ. Really more made for MAC speakers.
