    Tough crowd!


    It amazes me in this throw away world that there are still people like Dave and gimpod that cater to the old school equipment. This forum has been a great source of information and resources to set the clock back on a pair of speakers I have owned and loved for years.

    Dave's work is amazing and his customer service is second to none. I highly recommend him to anybody in need of his services.

    Thanks Dave!
  • F1nutF1nut Posts: 38,033
    Not really, just surprised that the owner didn't spring for new binding posts because the originals are pretty bad.

    I decided to replace the six old tweets with fresh RDO-198s. All the new and freshened up equipment has dramatically changed my system. I bought the speakers from a friend over twenty years ago. My ears are old and crunchy now but I am sure they never sounded better.

    Thanks again, Dave.

    Nice work man...I mean it is no Z edition 2.3TL (right @gudnoyez ) but it'll do Dave...it'll do. ;)

    On a side note, I used a set of Dayton Audio mini "jeweled" binding posts when I did mine. Unfortunately, they no longer make/sell them but they were perfect for the stock binding post cups/Trey's aluminum plates.

    Ryan, curious, why choose the minis over standard for a speaker?
    I picked some up, myself, but was intended to use to convert the speaker terminals in an old receiver where the space is limited.
