  • Why are you selling these? You have some excellent SACD's, CD's, and DVD-A's. The MFSL YES ALBUM CD is out of print, and is absolutely THE BEST sounding version of this album, ever. I hope you have another copy as this one will go to $100.00 plus in…
  • All right Jesse, you are really, really starting to freak me out with all the TT gear you are selling. Just the fact you own this much is freaking me out, let alone you are selling it. In all seriousness, buy from Jesse without hesitation. He is…
  • I am using my 3.1TL's as rear surrounds in my home theater. My 2.3TL's double as front stereo and front left/right theater speakers too. I feel that 3.1TL's work great as rear surrounds, but as stated, they match well with front SDA speakers. Can't …

  • If you own a turntable, you need this. Plus. it goes without saying that Jesse is a great guy to buy from!
  • Take your own advice @windstriker and do the work yourself (if you have enough electronic experience and proper equipment to get the job done well). You feel fulfilled doing the job yourself using the @gimpod crossover boards (purchased from @westma…
  • I used Sonicaps and Mills resistors on my 2B (TL's). I am not sure Mills resistors are still made (or at least if they are made by the same company). I could definitely recommend Clarity Cap ESA's (or whatever modern version of the capacitors that…
  • The 2B's with a blade/blade interconnect cable have to use a single crossover board (which I believe all 2B's did, but am not 100 percent on that). Mine are also blade/blade, but accepted the TL upgrade with no problem. Make sure you buy and install…
  • Is the $35 with shipping included, or is that separate? Also, are these JB welded?
  • Yep, you nailed it Brock. He's a great guy. He's honest, accurate, and I have bought several hundred dollars worth of tubes from him without issue. Definitely recommend him.
  • heiney9 wrote: » Joes tube lore is kind of a joke. He didn't like anything. He just disliked some less...lol Agreed Brock on Joe's Tube Lore. What's the guy (I am pretty sure he's located in Washington state) that had a good tube tube …
  • heiney9 wrote: » Stock JJ's? Really, I'd have to hear that. JJ's usually end up in the garbage can. Blunt, but honest. But there are no absolutes in this hobby and it's certainly all opinions and experiences. In 15 years rolling tubes in al…

  • I have not done the polarity test yet. I will give a listen first, and then do it after I shut down the system and report back. I double and even triple checked both crossovers and they are 100% correct as far as parts placement and parts conditi…
  • Update on my 2.3TL's. I installed lock washers on all end caps, and they won't be coming loose again. When I removed the right and left upper SDA drivers, I noticed that the left had blue as the positive, and on the right, green was positive. …
  • Ok, thanks for checking guys.
  • No sweat. Glad you didn't (potentially) mess up your cable. Thanks for trying though. Maybe someone else can answer if the ground pin is removable.
  • No, no , no. DO NOT destroy your cable, please, man! Let's wait and see if anyone knows for sure if the ground pin is removable or not (without trying it without knowing).
  • Thanks for the reply. You have never tried removing the ground pin though?
  • I looked it up, but could not find if the AC9SE has a removable ground pin or not? Can you tell me if it does please? Thank you Patrick.
  • There is still a rattling sound coming from at least the right speaker due to the caps (upper) not tightened all the way down. The scratching noise has stopped, however. I will need to actually look at the drivers while they are moving to see if the…

  • I did discover a loose bolt on one of the bottom end caps Jesse. I will tighten it down and see if that fixes the problem. Thanks for your input. I didn't realize how much of a difference once end cap bolt would make. WOW! Now I gotta tighten …
  • I pulled both crossover boards, and they look fine. Now if it's the amp, I'm going to be pissed. I will swap out the MIT cables and see what the result is.
  • Thanks for all the replies. I pushed both passives in and all drivers react the same by being pushed out on both speakers with absolutely no scraping sound at all. I have yet to open the right 2.3TL, but I did play a little more music and looking…
