  • Re: Original Classical Telarc import vinyl

    Dang it!! I was in a Gordon Lightfoot concert when this all went down... Great concert BTW.
    I'll admit I'm a bit jealous of such a great collection.

    Well today I got an education on AB series speakers... Turns out the owner of a fastsigns that I contract with was one of the designers of the AB series speakers... And he had a pair installed in the shop that I was able to get a close look at.

    so??? whadja learn???

    Well, if I understand correctly, there are 2 generations of AB series speakers... The early ones having the 65xx MWs with SL2k tweets, and the later having the poly-mica cones and tweets from the S series, and there being 2 different bezel plates to accommodate.

    Also I learned that there was an SDA varient that never made production at the behest of Mr Polk himself.

    I find it odd that Polk hasn't kept up with the very thing that put it on the map so to speak (SDA technology).

    Those are early 5s and that is normal.
  • Re: Does this waveform look clipped to you?

    It is gross. With over a century of recording technology at our disposal, and all the knowledge that comes with it, there's no reason to have a poorly recorded and mastered piece of music anymore, ever.

    To me it looks like the glass was removed for some reason and then placed back half-hazardly

Howdy, Stranger!
