  • Although I have not used the Phillips brand tubes you are referring to, I have used the Valvo long plate halo and D-getter 45 degree and straight getter tubes. The sound is close enough you will probably not notice the difference. Will they be on…

  • These look and (I am sure sound) bad-a$$ Jesse! Someone should buy these. I would if I didn't already own some Monitor 10's (that I am currently not even using).

  • Yeah, @pitdogg2's advice is good for recommending @westmassguy. Not sure if that is who you were referring to in your post @ps4ych0, but he is a trusted member of the forum and an excellent modifier of crossover boards. Edit: Make sure you have t…
  • Maybe a 90 degree phillips screw driver was used to put that screw in? I don't see how else you could do it by what you have shown and described. That would be my guess, is a 90 degree phillips screw driver.
  • If the screws were put in, they must be able to get the screws out without removing the capcitors. From what I know, you cannot put the crossover board on the inductor (that is, screw it down) and then solder the capacitors into place; it's not phys…
  • Didn't read the whole thread, but I highly recommend buying the Duelund Cast resistors instead of the "regular" Duelunds. They are absolutely worth the little extra money they cost. Nevermind, if you already purchased the "regular" Duelunds. Edit…
  • Yeah, I just noticed that. The screws must be screwed directly into the plastic of the inductor? That's also very unusual (like the internal jumpers). I also cannot say that definitively without holding the crossover board/inductor in my hand. Yo…

  • On a more cheerful note. I have since obtained and used a set of MIT Shotgun S3 Speaker and IC's (XLR, 2 sets). I enjoyed them a lot. I then upgraded to Shotgun S1 speaker and IC's (also XLR's). I also bought some bulk cable from Jesse (@F1Nut…

  • Listened to these in this order: These follow each other much better than you'd think.
  • dromunds wrote: » Headrott: Ah, the official release. Excellent.
  • Agreed Tony. Regarding The Forum. What happens if (in the future) you need Alexa (or a similar device) to interact on The Forum? I am trying to think if the forum crowd dynamic would be changed, and what would bring that change (including decreas…

  • Very happy to hear this! Glad you can use your 2B's again. I used to do headphones a lot more years ago, but speakers are a much different (and better) method of listening to music. Enjoy your listening sessions.

  • I would like to include this album in the thread. (The sound quality is absolutely outstanding as well. In other words, please release an SHM-SACD of this album).:
