    Need smaller speakers- where to go, what to do?

    Love that Daytona, PM. Years ago a friend had a Daytona coupe (serial # 13) that I was very familiar with. I once drove it with him from my previous home in Glenview, IL to Elkhart Lake WI, for a Historic Race weekend. I was too scared to drive it on the track though as it's value at the time...

    JBL L-82 Classics or my speaker eyes are bigger than my car stomach

    Ain't that kinda what JBLs are all about? Love to hear them. Sounds like you pegged the "fun meter".

    JBL L-82 Classics or my speaker eyes are bigger than my car stomach

    I've always loved that car. For some strange reason it reminds me of the Munsters.

    JBL L-82 Classics or my speaker eyes are bigger than my car stomach

    John, I have one and am not that far away should you ever need some "mega equipment" hauling. Besides I'm in Glenview every day.

    FX Audio Tube-01 Buffer/Preamp

    Are the Voskhods the stock tubes it came with? I’m running GE JAN tubes in both my Little Bear and FX-01. I’m sure there are better. I was just kidding on the “joy stick” comment but the toggle and plate cover you picked are a simple, elegant choice. Particularly if the toggle makes a...

    FX Audio Tube-01 Buffer/Preamp

    Glad to hear that it worked for you too, Poultrygeist. What tubes have you settled on? BTW, that is one beautiful power amp. The quality build is evident. When I retire, I'm going to have to experiment with a few DIY components and would love to learn more about it. PS: I love the "joy...

    What did I buy?

    I think I see the SUT. It's right there behind your accordion, just underneath the pan flute. I had three (3) lockers just like that which is why I needed to build a garage and shed. My one-story cabin is ~ 1000 sf. The two-story garage is ~ 720 sf per floor. While I truly love the...

    What did I buy?

    A thing of beauty ignoring the fact it will sound even better.

    What did I buy?

    I'm very impressed. Of course I'm referring to your pic taking skills. Know someone in the business? Seriously, its so very clean and simple. Hope it sounds as inviting as it looks. Congrats. Do you have a link that might include specs for that beauty. Only because my wife is suddenly...

    What did I buy?

    John, using the super accurate package tracking software, where are we with the delivery countdown clock? Asking for a friend as I only have very old stuff.

    What did I buy?

    Can't wait to hear how your new Luxman sounds, John.

    What did I buy?

    Yeah, the 5L15 is a truly worthy unicorn to try to find (and find parts for). It sounded so good with the DQ-10s. I still have the Crescendo in service over my workbench. It was being paired with my old Sumo Athena Pre until it crapped out recently and awaits repair. I substituted the...

    What did I buy?

    I had a 5C50 pre just like yours, John, for years. I thought it was a pretty good and an improvement over the C28/Crown D150 pre/power combo I had all through college. I later used the 5C50 with a an APT Holman power amp but was never quite satisfied with that combo either. After borrowing...

    Chicago Area/Southern WI - An Audio Oriented Get-Together

    Probably had 45 attendees. I invited the sister and friend of a longtime attendee who passed away last summer so that we could raise a toast in his honor. I gave her a whistle to blow when she was ready for the toast but unbeknownst to me once the group quieted down everyone turned to me to...
