Very nice speakers!Here they are. They are the earlier version stereophile liked. Back plate is brittle with age and was broken. Took a lot of gluing and then some trusty duck tape for reinforcement. I fabricated jumpers and then realized they aren’t needed.
[edit: turns out you DO need them; user error in installing them on 1st go round; now sound even better!]
Pretty clean; one crunched lower back corner and a few faint plant rings.
Running them with my lance Cochrane EL34 amp—lots of SPL.
Will give them some time but nice and detailed so far. Stereophile said musical and I’m hearing that. Will they unseat my 604s? Unlikely but who knows
