    Put your clothes on! A naked gear thread.

    @TimF cool! Man I've long been interested in those Croft pieces! Such good reviews around the net.

    My first step on this journey, appreciate advices.

    The issue you're going to run into here is your room is 6m x 6m and I'd be worried about your expectations of 95db @ listening position. With smaller drivers you're looking at I'd worry about actually achieving that output, and what the response will look like. In this case bigger is better, IMO.

    I'd go with the Audio Nirvana Classic 15" Alnico if your budget could stretch. Or the Classic 12" Alnico if it can't. Build their largest enclosure.

    Where are you located? How large of a room do you have? How large of speakers are you willing to build? How complex of a cabinet can you build? What kind of music do you listen to?

    FS: Elsdon Wonfor Claymore Retro Integrated

    The sale is back on if anyone is interested. Did some heavy thinking this past weekend and I'm possibly moving in a different audio direction for a while.

    1626 Single Ended Amp

    This might be something Jeff does on purpose. I spoke with him years ago before his email was shut off and he told me that he uses output transformers that are specifically rounded off on bass and highs. Aiming for 30hz-15khz as he believed the larger OPTs lose something tangible that the...

    1626 Single Ended Amp

    Ooooo very nice. I had a Jeff Larson 6CL6 Spud amp a while back that was one of the most pleasurable amps I've heard. Definitely interested.

    I'm not sure. I'm just not used to the Claymore getting warm. It's life with me has been a cakewalk. Always low level background listening with sporadic "jamming" when the boss steps out. All with 8ohm loads. This is the first time it has been on a 4ohm load and continuously above 10 o'clock...

    By the end of the day the ambient temp in the studio was just north of 90F. It was 103F outside and clearly the studio's AC is hardly working right now. With that said I shut the system off for the evening as the Claymore was pretty warm, but still nowhere near hot. If you can't tell by now I...

    Me too, actually. I think the gold JMR sticker on the front is a very nice touch and compliments the wood veneer nicely. It's the little things that do it for me.

    Didn't realize the MCS ran so warm. Thankfully I went in there to check and the Claymore was running slightly warmer than ambient temp (which it never has) and I slid a temporary block in the front to aid cooling. Will get back from lunch and cut some wood to add more space. It'll be a long...

    Well, as I suspected the boxes came in trashed. BUT, somehow the speakers are OK and I couldn't be more surprised. I had the post office put it in their system that the boxes came in heavily damaged so if there's any issue that comes up later we can quickly address it with a claim. However...

    StevenZ's Elsdon Wonfor Audio Claymore Retro Review

    Hey @SONDEKNZ unfortunately I won't be posting more internals. The amp is just far too irritating to put back together the way it's built. Having to perfectly align multiple pieces took nearly half an hour last time and I vowed after putting back in my favorite opamp that it would be the last...
