  • Seems like they are still on the Polk site listed at normal prices.

  • @mhardy6647 Her version of "The Weight" is absolutely fantastic, that was one of her first tunes that got me interested in her voice.

  • No option for speaker level inputs on the sub?
  • Monitor 4, Monitor 5JR+ and Monitor 12 all come to mind when thinking of 8 ohm vintage Polk Monitors.

  • SO I was testing the DC offset on the speaker terminals last night (10mv each channel..yay) and when I reconnected my SDAs I blew a fuse in my left channel after turning the volume up but not loud at all. I checked my connections and stupidly had th…

  • Always have fuses on hand. I learned that last night =P

  • Haha! Now that's some power!

  • 1. Take your time, don't buy whatever you can find. Wait for the right piece for you at the right price, it will save you money down the line. 2. Vintage gear is cool but chances are you will pay just as much if not more than the asking price to …
  • Now I am new to separates and have a question about volume. My preamp has output voltage of 1V, the Adcom input sensitivity is 1.25V. I do have to turn the volume up higher than on my Yamaha (I have no problem doing so except no damn remote!) and…
  • I got a good hour or two of listening in today, all I can say is how wrong I was yesterday. Maybe it's due to judging the amp cold where as today I let it warm up. Soundstage depth, separation and a black background make all the difference.
  • I’m getting to the point that I think a lot of it has to do with too small of a room.
  • Thanks @rooftop59! The east valley has rained and flooded for the last three days or so but I haven’t had any issues besides driving unwanted critters in.
  • Got the amp! Now I am going to give it a few days to mess around and get used to the sound. Initial impressions are meh, although it has finesse with the low end in spades it is a tad brighter than my Yamaha. I had to tone down the treble a bit on t…

  • heiney9 wrote: » Upon power-up a thump is normal and on power down if you don't turn the pre off first, you get a farting/squealing noise, which is normal. That's just the caps draining This can be avoided by proper start up/power down procedu…

  • heiney9 wrote: » Bottom line, it's an excellent performer, has a great reputation, was made in the hey day of Adcom, it's been recapped and $125 is a great deal and it's should sound better and perform better than the Yammy you have. Certainly …
  • I mean I don't know much about tubes but did do some research on Google. I found a thread where a gentleman described his tube looked like a Tesla coil for a second then stopped. To me it looks like a Tesla coil but you are the better judge of th…
  • PSOVLSK wrote: » That's the amp that got me started down the rabbit hole. $125 AND recapped makes it a no brainer IMO. The recap is what caught my eye, one less thing to worry about.
  • Thanks for sharing your experiences gents! I have to go Saturday and audition it, will bring my multi meter to ensure I don't see any issues on the output as he stated the recap was done just to the output stage.
