Damn! Who's more handsome: you or the speakers?
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.
The speakers! Even my wife agrees.
i think i need a pair, they're very slimming
Linkwitz Lab active crossover kit. Some copper foil inductors & Clarity caps. MOFI's latest One Step Limited Production LP.
Bang & Olufsen SME connector with MMC20E in mint condition.
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.
My first monster receiver.
Today, I picked up a set of RBH speakers (MC series) ...excellent condition...for $199 (odd price):
2 TS-10AP subs (yes, dual subs)
JBL C56 Dorians
Yamaha C-50 Preamp
Yamaha M-50 Amp
Just purchased a brand new REL T7i subwoofer, next on the list is a Bluesound Vault 2...
Took most of the summer off due to slim pickings; A few people deciding to purge their storage units led to some pretty substantial bulk purchases:
Hitachi HT-12 Turntable
Dual 510 Turntable
Dual 1258 Turntable
Dual CS 528 Turntable
Dual 1210 Turntable
Dual 1214 Turntable
JVC L-A110 Turntable
Pioneer PL-12 Turntable
Realistic R-8000 turntable
Concord CR-260 Receiver
Fisher RS-220 Receiver
Advent 300 Receiver
Audio Research ST-2000 tuner
PSB 50R speakers
Everything needs work of some sort; looking forward to it though. Included were another four turntables that qualified as broken BPC and are straight to the recyclers.
Pioneer CT-F850 Cassette Deck
Yamaha CA-1010 Integrated Amp
Sony APM-66ES Speakers
Belts in the cassette deck are shot and the amp has considerable build-up in the dials and switches. A good cleaning will be required to see whats what. Meter lights work though!
Addicted to the Flouroscan meters; no idea why I keep letting the pioneer receivers go.
Slim picking this year as everyone on CL is asking crazy prices, but did manage to pick up the following within a period of a month:
JBL 1401ND woofers
JBL Minigon, but drivers in fair condition, crossover fine
Harman Kardon Citation IV with some Telefunken tubes
Harman Kardon Citation V
(haven't tested them yet)
Denon DVD-2930CI multi format disc player barely used and in the box at a estate sale.
4 sets of kimber kable PBJ interconnects
Original JBL speaker stands.
Rough, need sanding and re-coat.
Gotta get them JBL's off the floor!!
In the last 2 months I got a free yamaha ax 590 they said left channel was cutting out but its been fine for me.
Also paid £20 for a marantz pm 6010 ose which goes great.
Last night I got some celestion dl8 speakers
only tried these on the 6010 ose and they are very good detail not a lot of bass but they might go better on the yamaha for bass.
or I can just use the kef psw 2010 for more.
A used Schiit Bifrost Multibit DAC
