    I had a chance to buy one last summer for 800.00. It was upgraded to maximize it's potential. The nice guy said he paid 500 for the upgrade. It was pristine!

    I almost bought it. :)

    They are actually 20th century tech, as are solid state amps... My Tubes would give your Pass X600's a run for their money.

    Yes, you are correct. They were invented in 1904. My mistake. :)

    I have been proven right 99.7 percent of the time, so I tend to operate with half my brain tied behind my back just to make it fair for others.

    If I lived close to Omaha I would have the sub and amp. That amp sounds great if working at full potential.

    I had that Energy sub and if I were anywhere near Omaha I would be all over that, if its working properly that'd be the best $20 you ever spent.

    Hahah, right, mine have been torn down for over a year now. Wife is really pissed that our seldom used dinner table looks like this. Plus them hanging out in the living room.

    Hahah, well, I thought I was done with one and started the other. Then I realized I never hooked the parallel caps upto the ground. I'm not so sure I'm following the schematic correctly. Honestly I'm regretting not just paying a pro to do them.

    @VR3 , is it to late to send ya everything??? 😆

    As far as what else do I have hiding in the corner...... I have some Infinity IRS series V sitting on the back porch. But I think the FL humidity is not good for them. Too big to put in the house. They are next to some Wilson Watt Puppies and Polk SRT system.

    Before magnetic tape recorders, there were recorders using thin wire to record on.
