    It's All Black and White

    My wife and I have begun setting up a small studio in our apartment. So instead of a dining room we can play with photos and she can do professional work. Currently its just a backdrop and some lights, including a big stage/spot fresnel as she wants to do Hollywood Glamour style lighting. We...

    It's All Black and White

    Do you need an enlarger? We might be getting rid of our Beseler. I think I probably asked you this already.

    For sale: Quad ESL-63 PRO.

    I just don’t think you’d be happy spending $1000 on speakers that get home with damaged membranes, arcing and shorting your amp.

    For sale: Quad ESL-63 PRO.

    The issue isn’t just dimensions it’s orientation and care in transport. They’re fragile speakers. Ideally they should be transported upright. At worst laying down. I don’t think these are going anywhere without an suv or minivan sadly. I may have a prior line on these locally with a store so...

    Proton AA-2120 amp FS, Detroit or Chicago.

    I have no idea what the DC offset is. This was serviced, I was told, 2 years ago but I don't know anything about the check-up they did, it was done prior to me purchasing it.

    For sale: Quad ESL-63 PRO.

    While this would be a great development I cannot see them fitting in a sedan. One would fit in the trunk with the seat folded down but I don't know where the other would go? One would take up the entire front of the car. I will measure them tonight to be sure but they were brought to me in an SUV.

    Proton AA-2120 amp FS, Detroit or Chicago.

    "Where does he get all these amps?" Behold the Proton AA-2120. I picked this up within the last couple of years to run with the Elac speakers I had in my bedroom, but a buddy of mine bought those and I redid that whole system around my Leben amp So, its for sale! Look at those meters...

    Eico 2036 integrated DETROIT SALE

    Its funny, for all the nice stuff I've been listing I'm actually saddest about seeing this go. I listened to this amp a LOT.

    For sale: Quad ESL-63 PRO.

    If you're local and could pick these up I'd sell them for $1000. That's less than the cost of the rebuild. I only have one shipping box so shipping is not really doable.

    For sale: Luxman Laboratory Reference amp/pre/tuner stack.

    I like the integrated and went "wooo hoo!" and dove all in. Right around the time... I went down a totally different path.

    Best Carpet For Taming Room?

    Funny, as I was just going to suggest a shag rug. At least, kind of a low-to-medium pile one. I don't know if you remember PM the one that was in the back room at my place, the off white one. It was one of decent quality from Target, not their cheapest kind. It helped floor reflections in that...

    So.....What's Been Going On Around Here?

    I'm happy you're back, David. It's been a bit quiet around here and your enthusiasm has been missed.

    Luxman M12 amp for sale.

    Luxman and Sony in that era were in a competition with Kenwood to torture the most stereo fanatics.

    Luxman M12 amp for sale.

    I don't know what was going on with Luxman in this era but all of their speaker terminals were torture devices. They take bare wire but pins might also work. I recall using it with adaptors and these gold plated soft pins and plugging banana plugs into them. You put both ends of the wire in then...

    Eico 2036 integrated DETROIT SALE

    If it was one of the years I was there, I recall somebody bringing an HF-81. I think the amp section of this is based on that, same output transformers (? according to random internet people). There's not much out there on them, Eico's last tube series before going solid state. The HF-81 is...
