    My latest...

    Some Japan Min7 tweeters and a BSR SA-3X spectrum analyzer for my BR 2.1 system.
    That BR system was getting kinda boring to stare @ so I figured the analyzer would add some needed "eye candy" LOL.

    Installed it inline via the L/R pre-outs that are feeding the sub.

    FWIW

    I bought a pair of JBL 4410 studio monitors on the last day of an estate sale. The woofer foams were gone and the cabinets need some attention. Refoamed the woofers and I love the way they sound. I picked up at a Technics SU-V8 at a moving sale for a dollar .It's a heavy powerful beast.Sounds incredible with the JBL's..Funny thing about the Technics is when I bought it they had it sitting on top of a trash can. If it wouldn't have sold it probably would have ended up in the trash can .

    Bought a (then) TOTL Lafayette LR-1500TA for $50 today. Apparently, this receiver garnered many good reviews back in the day. I need a new receiver like a hole in the head, but I couldn't resist. I still haven't hooked it up to my system yet though. The picture below isn't mine however. It's just for general reference purposes.

    My lightly used Manley Neo-Classic 250's arrived today. I didn't get the deal of the century on them, but it was a much better deal than I think these amps would warrant. Just fantastic sounding, and (relatively) cheap to maintain.

    They generate so much heat, and are so darn big. But damned, they are mas macho.

    I just picked one up for cheap, too. Mostly because I wanted a cheap MC head amp for my Linn ASAK. Which sounds better than the Pro-ject Phonobox S I just sold, for 50% more than I paid for the Rotel :)banana:).

    Yeah, I've since sold the Rotel. Onwards and upwards. Glad you're enjoying yours. Cheers.

    Picked up a pristine Sherwood S-110CP receiver on the 'Bay for $290 + shipping. I think it was a decent price.
