  1. I will once it arrives :).
  2. It’s stock. Haven’t got to mods yet. And if I'm looking at this right it might be worse than what I have now... AT11E Frequency response: 15-25000Hz Output: 4.8mV Channel balance: 1.5dB Stylus shape: 0.4 x 0.7 mil elliptical Cantilever: thin wall Tracking force: 1.5 to 2.5g Cartridge weight: 5.5g Replacement stylus assembly: ATS11E (green) Carbon Frequency response: 20 to 20,000Hz Output voltage: 3.5mV Channel balance: within 2.5dB Stylus: 0.6 mil Cantilever: carbon Tracking force: 1.5 to 2.5g Weight: 5.0g Replacement stylus: ATN-91
  3. Ok guys, here is what I've got coming in to try. A buddy is giving me a Grado Carbon Cartridge with needle. Here are the specs: Output: 2.5mV at 1kHz Stylus: User replaceable. Fixing: Standard, two screws Cantilever: Carbon Colour: Black/White Tracking Pressure 2-3g Here are the specs of the AT11E for comparison Generating element: dual moving magnet Frequency response: 15-25000Hz Output: 4.8mV Channel balance: 1.5dB Stylus shape: 0.4 x 0.7 mil elliptical Stylus construction: bonded Cantilever: thin wall Tracking force: 1.5 to 2.5g Cartridge weight: 5.5g So I'm wondering what I need to put the loading on the C-1 as, and also if spec wise how this compares to the others. I see differences in the numbers but dont know what that equates to honestly. Once again the Turntable is a Techics SL-B3 and your help appreciated.
  4. I prob need one of the testers at some point... rehabbing a old tube console lol
  5. LOL.... yeah, I'm bringing home a label maker tomorrow from work so I can start labeling and disconnecting things so I can pull the tube amp out to check the tubes, get more pics, and clean the chassis. Then the tuner and input selector will get the same treatments. I'm leaving the TT for now, if I remove it, I will just clean it up so it looks brand new, its not ever going to be used. If it "does" work, thats a plus just so I can know its fully functional, but thats it...
  6. So Greg..... your saying you'd be happy to take on my console then eh 😱😝
  7. As a FYI there is another member from here in your backyard (also in NC IIRC) Sea, who has also repaired ribbons in the past. He uses a diff material but it’s been heard, touched and signed off in by Bob Carver. Might be another option for you once they comeback
  8. That’s pretty cool info! Thanks!
  9. Its what Mark uses to clean out his ears with instead of cutips 🤪
  10. Well I dug into my old posts (knew I mentioned it somewhere). Its a AT11E Found that info here...... Wonder if its worth upgrading the cart or headshell or just leave it as is.... the TT works fine but dont want to put a lot of lipstick on a pig of a TT so to speak....
  11. Maybe you can lol...... I haven't tried it since its working and from what I can tell I dont feel I'm "missing" anything...... It sounds DAMMMNED GOOD! I forgot how good OLD Vinyl sounds..... This is the first time I've hooked this up in about 2 years since I didnt have a phono pre....... I just felt like playing with this as my Tube Console will be mated with this TT later when I get it recapped and modded to accept a external TT (rather than the built in one), as well as add a line level input for a chromecast audio....
  12. I’m running a Technics SL-B3 TT and need help identifying a cartridge. I don’t want to screw w removing it if I don’t have to. Just trying to make sure I got the loading on my Carver C-1 right. Ive got it hooked up to Phono 1 w the infrasonic filter engaged. Not a clue what loading to use for the cartridge so i think it’s set at the middle which I think is 140?? My system is a hodge lodge of a bunch of things right now. The TT path is as follows TT —> C-1 -> Anthem MRX 500 -> Soundstream D-1 monos -> AV123 ELT525T towers and a Polk MicroPro 2000 sub. The rest of the gear bypasses the C-1 so it’s basixally a phono pre since my Anthem didn’t have a phono input. The Carvers volume is about 50% as Greg said that’s where it’s closest to perfect level wise (or I think he said that sometime lol). At 50% I feel like it’s fine. I’ve got it really low on then Anthem right now and it’s perfect. Listening to my Dads old LP collection!
  13. If you have more than one DA-2 (the rackmount ones), let me know what you'd want for them.... I might be interested in snagging them for a pair of subs I want to build... they match up quite well either to run as a bridged 8 ohm, or dual 4 ohm loads...
  14. NO... NO PARTY BARN REFERENCES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  15. I still have his phone number, and remember the last time we talked. I was thinking about going active with my speakers and was talking to him as he was the expert on the subject.
  16. I am reminded of the following video...
  17. Hope its ok, but posted this on the Polk Forum as there are a BUNCH of guys in your area there.
  18. Banned for talking about My Little Pony. Touche! Banned for triggering me . To the safe space!
  19. I ban Greg for picking the wrong My Little Pony. According to my daughters the only one that matters is Pinkie Pie!
  20. I have 4 Infinity 1260's. They are USED and in working condition, and I DO NOT have the original boxes for them, but should still be able to package them appropriately. Wire 2 together in a sealed dual opposed boxes and you get an easy to drive 8 ohm load x 2. Very high sensitivity. In a sealed configuration they dont mind small boxes and 1.2 cubic feet per sub (so under 3 cubic feet for a pair) is a good start and easy to put in most rooms. I'm looking for 50 a driver + actual shipping. I'm open to offers, but send those via PM's. I'm in the Indianapolis area, but will be up in Chicago at some point in the next few weeks, and down towards the Louisville KY area if that helps any. As an idea as to shipping, I just got a quote of 70 bucks shipped from Indy to New Orleans. I can fit all 4 drivers in a box that is 16 x 16 x 36. Each driver would have 1.75" on all 4 sides and about 2"; between each driver. I am also not against selling them as pairs or individually. PM me if interested. Pictures below: The number-one aftermarket car audio speaker . . . five years running* When you want a truly moving car audio experience, look no further than Infinity® Reference speakers. And you won’t be alone in having great sound in your vehicle. Infinity Reference has been the top-selling aftermarket car audio speaker for five years running, and with good reason. Infinity Reference continues to lead the industry with innovative materials and breakthrough engineering that delivers extreme output with accuracy and detail for the ultimate listening experience on the road. And proprietary features such as patent-pending Plus One cones, true four-ohm topology, and UniPivot; edge-driven tweeters leave the competition scrambling to keep up. So experience what so many others have enjoyed for years, and install Infinity Reference speakers in your vehicle. Prepare to be moved. General Specifications Impedance: 4 Ohms Audio Specifications Sensitivity: 93dB Frequency Response: 23Hz - 400Hz Dimensions Diameter (in): 12-3/8" Mounting Depth (in): 6-7/16" Features Polypropylene woofer cone When you want to experience seriously low bass that is reproduced with detail and clarity, you need a woofer using a cone that is stiff yet lightweight. The Reference 1260W delivers an exceptional bass experience by using a woofer cone made of polypropylene. Polypropylene is the perfect combination of strength and light weight for high power handling and efficiency. It can deliver the deep bass notes that rattle your ride as well as the subtle bass notes of an audiophile-quality listening experience. Large-roll rubber surrounds To ensure high-performance, distortion-free bass for all kinds of music, a subwoofer cone needs to be strong when moving the large amounts of air that we hear as bass. One of the places where a subwoofer cone can be at its weakest and can distort is where the cone attaches to the basket. To ensure that the cone does not bend or flex at this connection, a strong material must attach the basket to the cone. This attachment is called the surround. Where other companies products use inferior materials, the Reference 1260W uses large-roll rubber surrounds. The roll size and strength provide stronger cone-edge suspension and absorb any distortion that might travel up the cone edge. The result: exceptional sound quality and detail. And if better sound quality alone isnt enough, rubber is much more durable than other materials commonly used in surrounds. It will provide many, many miles of rocking out to your favorite artist. Progressive spiders No, this isnt the bug but the name of the corrugated woven material just under the speaker cone. This important part of a subwoofer is designed to keep the subwoofers voice coil moving as linearly as possible. In other words, a well-engineered spider is key to keeping control over the entire woofer cone. To ensure optimum control,the Reference 1260W uses a a progressive spider design that exerts more force as the voice coil reaches its limit. With a Reference subwoofer, you will hear nothing but deep, tight, distortion-free bass even under the most extreme performance conditions. As we said . . . go ahead and turn it up! Large, two-inch (51-millimeter) voice coils When it comes to bass in the car, you want to turn the power up. However, too much power, converted into heat, destroys speakers. The Reference 1260W voice coils two inches (51 millimeters) in diameter, which provide plenty of heat-dissipating surface area with high output and long durability. In fact, the 1260W can handle up to 1200 watts of peak power, far more than competitive subwoofers at the same price. So go ahead and turn it up. We want you to. Sealed boxes Dont have a lot of room? Looking to hear every subtle detail in your bass? Add a powerful subwoofer amplifier to a sealed box loaded with a Reference 1260W subwoofer. You just might hear all the sounds that you want to hear. Vented boxes Have a little more space to work with? Want people to hear you coming? A vented box might be for you. Vented boxes maximize bass in the 40Hz to 60Hz range and make more efficient use of amplifier power for a huge bass experience.
  21. This setup is MUCH more ideal. I need to redo room correction, but I like it better. The sweet spot is the entire couch and I think the results are much better already.
  22. Thanks Dennis. That's one reason I haven't changed it. Mark, it is indeed. I'm gonna throw a movie on later tonight after I rerun ARC. I also moved things around and it looks MUCH better!
