    Snell K/2 question.

    Well went for Simply Speakers set for the K/2 specifically. These woofs are what they were supposed to have so I’ll go original. The other options were costly for a free pair of speakers with stripped holes. Once done, they should be good. I also see 8 holes, I’ll try to find stock images and...

    Snell K/2 question.

    I have the Peerless drivers, they are the 2005 replacement. The frame is less substantial than the old Radio Shack 8” 16oz woofs I used to buy as a high school DIY’er. They would need damping if I keep them, which I suppose I will. They’re in fine shape otherwise. I do wonder if the Atomic or AN...

    Snell K/2 question.

    The woofers were never close to abused, I see no reason to pony up $190 for new ones when he did then, also replacing the chokes and coil. I like the looks of the simply s kits, I’ll have the driver out to see which was supplied to him then. They otherwise still look new. My AN curiosity is...

    Snell K/2 question.

    So a friend gave me his old pair of K/2 Snell speakers. They’re nice, the oak ones not the common black ash. I even got the Snell stands! Sand included. The woofers had been replaced in 2005 with then available replacements from Snell. Well, the foam has expired. AN makes what seems to be the...

    Another pair of Pioneer/TAD to modify

    These speakers are hard to please. I mean picky. I get good sound with most of the gear here, but no magic. Until the NRG amp came home. Instant magic, man they really get on together. Big and wide sound, tuneful but also impactful bass, it’s just delicious. I do find myself letting more songs...

    Happy Victoria Day 2021!

    Ah yes, my dad was a royal family historian of sorts. I share the bday with the queen, so it was always an affair in the house. I’ll have a few fingers of scotch later.

    Spectral amp checked up with new RCA’s, four small caps and a full re solder and check. It’s really good to go now with the pre.

    More NRG pics. The amp is pretty much flawless, which is a feat for something this large and heavy with this type of heat sink.
