After saving up a couple of bucks, I tried to contact a local seller of a SDA SRS 2.3 tl's to see if I can convince him to let them go for a cheaper price. I may have mentioned this on one of the threads that the gentleman cancelled the transaction. He called me back yesterday and asked me to pick them up. Not only did he gave me a tight a$$ deal, he also threw in a Sony CDP-CX235 and a Hafler DH-500 power amp for another sweet deal. Here they are guys, hope you enjoy them.

Thanks,

Glenn

    Congratulations.

    You'll want to switch the speakers around. SDA drivers (the 2 on each speaker) belong on the outside rather than the inside. The label on the back of each speaker should say which is left and which is right.

    Gatemplin - I think the owner may have done some modification on the amp. The RCA connectors have been replace with a gold plated one(not sure which kind) and I am not sure if it comes with fan inside but it is kind of loud when nothing is playing. He is a certified electrician (he showed me his certificate). Other than a coffe cup mark on one of the speakers, they are in minty condition.

    Specifications of The Hafler DH-500 power amp

    Power Rating:
    Less than 0.25% total harmonic distortion at any power level up to 255 watts continuous average power per channel into 8 ohms at any frequency between 20 hz and 20 khz with both channels driven

    IM Distortion (SMPTE): Less than 0.007% from 1 watt to 255 watss into 8 ohms
    Freq Response into 8 ohms: -3db, 0.5 Hz to 120 kHz at 1 watt
    +/-0.5 dB, 5 Hz to 40 kHz at watts
    Iput Impedence: 47000 ohms
    Input Sensitivity: 2.35 Volts for 255 watts into 8 ohms; 0.145 volts for 1 watt
    Dampin Factor: 200 to 1 kHz into 8 ohms; 60 to 10 kHz into 8 ohms
    Rise time: 10 kHz, 80 volts p/p square wave, 10% to 90%: 2.5 us.

    Emlyn - I double checked the labels at the back of the speakers and I think I placed them the way it should be(when looking at the pictures above)

    Thanks for the complement guys!

    They are placed correctly, those 2.3's with the doughnuts on the mids are different then the other 2.3's.

    Hahah:) They are in located safely in my garage. I need to find some time to set up the room where it's going to. I couldn't resist to hook them up right away and listen to them. I shouldn't have hooked them up, they sound so good, I don't want to move them any more :D .

    I remember now that Hoosier mentioned this type of speaker in another thread a few months ago as a very early example of SDA SRS 2.3s. I didn't realize these required an unconventional placement configuration (SDA drivers positioned to the inside) as well as having the unusual doughnut drivers. Seemed to have something to do with adjusting output to get the speakers to sound good with the unusual driver arrangement. I thought these were built before the SL3000 tweeters became available.

    It is my understanding that these stranglings should have the 2 drivers towards the center. The donuts are a resonance control for the SDA function and they should be towards the outside. I've never owned these particular ones but this is the story I have heard. Congrats!

    I had a friend who had a DH500 power amp. It does indeed have a fan; plus it has MOSFET transistors. It is the big brother to my power amp. Peace.
