    More Amp Construction

    Ok, so not only have I been buying and stashing 3c24's, but I've also been buying and stashing 100TH's, so I am, once again, very excited to see this!! This thread rules, sir. Carry on.

    HiFi Haven Group Project - Building The "World's Best Tube Phono Preamp"

    Well done @jmathers, looks fantastic! I played with the heater resistors a bit, until I got voltages where I needed them. I think I used 0.33r, and 0.11r, or 0.22r for the second resistor, I can't recall exactly.

    Luxman M12 amp for sale.

    That is a rather efficient use of space! I like the heatsinks on the front, clearly it's allowed them to keep the overall package smaller. A toss up between an Aleph 30? That is high praise IMO. Good luck with sale~

    heard on the Beeb today: GM is throwing in the towel on the Holden brand

    I heard this earlier, and all I can think about is how it dramatically reduces that chance that I'll get to drive a Maloo too fast, mostly sideways, while listening to Rose Tatoo's 'nice boys' cranked up... Bummer about Holden for sure.

    Lots of drivers, Fostex, Celestion, Faital Pro, Hivi....

    I'm clearing out a bunch of drivers I don't use, and likely won't anytime soon. I bought all of these new, and only some have ever been used. They are all in original packaging. I'll happily make deals for purchasing a bulk of drivers of course. Fostex FF85WK - $60/pair, plus shipping, 1 pair...

    Matrix multicell horns - deconstruction and reproduction attempts

    Well I've been prepping my multicell assembly line. I have to make some more shelves to store bits and pieces or I'll end up buried under a stack of horn parts.... Plus I'm thinking I'll build a pair of Western Electric TA-7331-A's before too long, for @Tsingtao_1903

    Experience Music horns

    I thought they were usually deployed with large 'butterfly' baffles...maybe I'm remembering wrong. I think they're very beautiful, and clearly made by highly skilled craftspeople. They're different, bold, and I suspect they sound pretty damn good. I bet they need a pretty decent sized room...

    I would probably run the -ve off the umbilical to the termination point of the, I'm assuming, ground buss (red line in diagram). Then each negative (-) lead of the caps have an individual wire to the same point.

    Western Electric TA-7331-A Baffle

    I think the louvers are to tune the rear chamber, less directing sound, and more controlling pressures in the rear chamber. Am I reading the plans correctly, it looks like the fronts are to be covered with a silk panel?

    Western Electric TA-7331-A Baffle

    From Chuck Azzolina's post: "My suspicions were confirmed with a decent sound but with boomy and boxy congestion. After two alignment adjustments though we were pleasantly surprised. " I'm curious what the "alignment adjustments" were.... I suspect some stuffing behind the driver, as that...

    They are super fragile, I nuked a few just trying to solder the little devils... so I put them on a piece of vero-board with some 26 guage leads... a bit of a heavy handed solution, but it kept my gorilla paws from nuking more of them ..:)

    uh-oh, I am feeling snarky again: Have y'all seen these: Magnat Transpuls 1500 loudspeakers?

    Note the 'Cash' album in the pic, hipsters will love that... I think.. who knows. :)

    uh-oh, I am feeling snarky again: Have y'all seen these: Magnat Transpuls 1500 loudspeakers?

    Those look decent, with the grills on. Nicely sized certainly, proper cone area and all that jazz....

    I'm dumb — help me be less dumb. Impedance question

    Fair question. Common sense is for suckers..... have a few whiskys, then crank it up and clip lead that sucker into submission. ymmv.
