  • Lots of great suggestions. Hadn't considered just using a computer other than my laptop which I can't dedicate to the cause because it travels with me all the time. But again, what about a 'mirror' drive for the computer? Was thinking of somethin…
  • Thought I'd resurrect this thread instead of starting a new one. I'm also looking at the Azure 851N or CXN v2 as an upgrade from my current AudioEngine B1 & Iphone streaming process which has become quite burdensome and limited. I've got the o…

  • https://fairbanks.craigslist.org/ele/d/polk-audio-sda-1cs/6596378455.html Bought a pair of 7c's from this seller last year. Nice person with an outstanding Polk / Sunfire collection of equipment. Found & bought a pair of SDA 2a's last win…

  • @yep2 Are all the cables in use? Quite a collection of homemade handy work.
  • The Furez TST-WP38Ag series Tensioned Split Tube Banana Plug Speaker connectors provide optimized contact pressure with maximized contact area utilizing a patent pending design that truly uses high conductivity copper. Traditional banana plug design…

  • Would i connect them up to the 4ohm or 8ohm taps?

  • And while on the subject, what dictates the sensitivity/efficiency of a speaker? The driver design or crossover or both??
  • Looking at an Ebay listing for a nice looking pair of these. Would the sensitivity of 91db's with these little bookshelf speakers make them a contender for a flea powered tube amp?? Polk Audio Monitor 4A Type 2 way, 2 driver loudspeaker …

  • Cinch Jones plug Didn't know that was what it was called. Would have never found it.
  • Very true. But regardless of where the speaker is located, a price of $1500 for that particular pair of 2.3's in their current condition is still outrageous in my opinion. I'd pay the shipping & cost for those SDA's in WA. long before I'd purch…
  • You know, I'm really being pretty stupid or just getting too old to think clearly. I'm a frickin' electrical contractor. I have put literally thousands of cord ends on cables. I have thousands of feet of CL2 24-10ga. cable in my shop. Duhhhhhh. …
  • @Tony M Thanks, no problem. Don't know exactly my layout yet, will the 16ga. be a problem if I get the 20' cable? Seems a little small but I'm not going to be pushing the 2A's with much power to start with.
  • Thank you both @mhardy6647 & @tonyp063. I appreciate the quick education. I'm not near Northern England but my wife and I have that area on our 'to visit' list for someday. I realize this is an 'entry' level tube amp but the reviews for it we…
  • Interesting. I just found this thread after I ordered one of the APPJ mini2013 amps not long ago. Due for shipping around May 25th from Massdrop. Thought this amp might be an inexpensive way to 'test the water' and see what this 'tube' thing is al…
  • Was that @Tony M that scored that? Guess I didn’t realize the blade/blade IC cables were so available. Was considering cobbling a cable together just to get them up and running but it may be awhile before they get upgraded so thought I’d hold out…
  • Never mind. Now they need some speaker foam replacements and might have scratchy drivers (magnet separation??). He’s convinced they’re worth the $1500 as is. Not to me.
  • Still available from Polk? Are they NOS or do they still manufacture them? Hopefully @Tony M will have one available that I can recycle. If not I now know I can order them, Thanks @pittdogg2. Will be upgrading the 2A's but would sure like to be …

  • That would be awesome. You can PM me for pricing and shipping if ones available. Please keep me in mind. Thanks
  • @MrBuhl I understand completely. At my stage in life I'm looking for 'end game' projects that will last. Don't have the time & patience to cut corners and 'get it right the next time'. I've only got a pair of M7c's & SDA 2A's right now b…
  • I really like the 'Santos' Rosewood veneer on the Ovis site. Seems all my favorites are not cheap ($200 a 2'x8' sheet) & out of stock. And most have a 2 sheet minimum. May just have to bite the bullet and place the order. Shipping isn't too …
