Newbie from Belgium

Thank you for the acceptance on this forum.
Passionate about audio for a long time, I have the chance to live in a place that allows all the follies concerning this passion and to have a very tolerant wife facing these extremes.
I have been able over the last decades to accumulate a lot of old audio material and so over time to realize some audio systems that of course have evolved over time as for many of us.
I would participate occasionally in some sharing but already I was able to enjoy some very interesting readings on this nice forum.
This is the main system of the show that has passed over time through several phases of complication of which this is the latest version and probably the last.(?)
Extremely modified Klipschorn with Vitavox K15/40 woofer , 10 cells horn modified for a Coral M100 and a simple JBL 075.
K3Horns - Denon DCD 2000AE - PE34 Studio - EasternElectric minimax + Phono - K209+GF - 300B LMA - sony TA 4300F crossover.
Best regards,
Marc

Marc, welcome to Hi-Fi Haven!

You have a stunning audio system that I’m sure sounds as good as it looks, and you’ve no doubt learned much along the way.

I can’t help but think, though, that you’d get more enjoyment out of it if you turned the chair around! :tongue:

Next Round Is On Me
Welcome to the Haven and what a great looking system! I almost bought a set of horns like that but don’t think the wife would have been as accepting. Do you have a splitter on the backside connecting the two drivers? Also, I would not mind pictures of the rest of your components.

Thank's everybody;
the devices are in the veranda behind the speakers.
The bass is powered by a 30-watt Kaneda 209+ Grand floyd transistor amplifier.
The medium by another but identical amplifier and the treble by a mono amplifier of 300B (la maison de l'audiophile).
Actively analogic Crossed at 400-4500 hz by the old three way Sony TA4300 f.

Fantastic looking system and room, glad to have you.

Out of curiosity, what benefits have you found in having the tweeters firing backwards? Am looking to implement super tweeters with large multi cell horns myself.

Thank you for your positive messages.
In this situation the speaker placed slightly at an angle. , I use the back wall which is about 35 - 40 cm to use it as a reflector.
I would admit that I am still in the testing phase but the first impression is that it gives a more in-depth sound image.
But we have to be careful with too strong an opinion and so I remain cautious in my conclusions.
Further testing will take place in the future.
This 075 is not really called a super tweeter since it does not go up very high but it has a nice material in the bottom.
Our living room is not very studied acoustically and so I had to give a slight angle to the ceiling for the pavilion Vitavox 10 cells, this because the overall sound image was too low.
Now we get a beautiful musical atmosphere wide and deep with a realistic height.
 
Welcome to the Haven.

Most curious about the plinth for your turntable. Very unique design. Is it made from concrete or some kind of natural stone?
