  1. Happy Birthday Greg.. Hope you guys are happy, warm and safe for your special day. May you have many, many more to come!
  2. All mine generally showed my GF's butt!! ( but it looked just as good both ways.... cheeks were always equal...) BTW... You can take two mirrors touching each other and hold them at the proper angle to make just one image and actually see what others see when looking at us....ie..they then produce a corrected and inverted image of what is in front of the mirrors. Try it...very interesting and fun to do!
  3. They don't flip as we know it... Look at you left hand and then look at it in the mirror. It is still on the left side. What the mirror does is to invert the image front to rear. That is...if we saw the front side of the mirror...( opposite what we are looking at) we would see exactly as things are, but we're not looking at that. We're looking at the back side of that image and therefore the image is reversed...front to rear...not left to right. We're seeing the inverted image, not the reversed image. Make sense? That's the best way that I can explain it. Here's the explanation fro
  4. I doubt that this is an issue in a crossover.... especially with lower resistance resistors. The inductance issue is generally only evident in higher values where more turns are on the resistor.
  5. I would keep the sand cast resistors. They dissipate heat better than film resistors. They are also wirewound resistors which I read- http://www.aikenamps.com/index.php/resistor-types-does-it-matter -are the most linear for audio use. I doubt that you'd hear any improvement with others. The repair looks easy. I would not resolder the board to the original tabs....rather use a braided copper conductor...much like what is used in solder wick or the wires going to the voice coil of many speakers. It's very flexible and won't come loose with vibration in the future. Find a way to mount the boar
  6. I've been considering selling all of them for years. I've had them for more than 15 years. I got them in a rental locker sale that was abandoned by a film producer who had just gone through a divorce and his ex failed to tell him when the rental was due. I got thousands of dollars worth of equipment from the locker and owned an eBay consignment store at the time. I purchased it all to sell from the store. I kept the video discs though. He had quite a collection of cartoon discs, Clint Eastwood, Bruce Lee, many hard to find B grade horror movies and all of them had been played just once. ( I m
  7. Beautiful setup!!! I still have those 400 new laserdiscs sitting here waiting for you!lol
  8. All and any rap, hip hop, heavy metal, ultra modern progressive jazz....and oh yes...Taylor Swift! ( Gosh, I'm picky!)
  9. @DaddyJT "Can you share the impedance of the volume pot? Remote volume is a deal-breaker for me, and curious of the possibility of modding it..." × Hi.... We use the ALPs 20K although we have also used a 100K with good results as well, although the 100K is a bit more sensitive at the bottom end and the 20K seems a bit more linear...no difference in sound though...only in the volume settings for the unit. We already have a remote kit that can easily be added to the unit and quite possibly our next model will include it, but the power transformer I had
  10. Because of the delays we experienced with some parts and shipping boxes our initial sales got off to a rather late start...half way through the 1 month sale originally planned. I have convinced JG to extend the sale for another 2 weeks....until the 15th of April to make up for the 2 weeks of lost time at the beginning of the sale. Either JG or I can be contacted for more information. Thank you for the support we have so far received! FXB

  12. The Alps pot you're looking for is the 27mm Size Metal Shaft Type RK271 Series ALPS and is available in many resistance values. We have used both the 20K and 100K and had excellent results with either. Do not order the stepped fixed resistor ladder type that you can get on eBay for about $6. The steps were too wide apart for our purposes and it was not always possible to get the exact volume that we wanted with it. One step might be too low and the next step would jump to being too high. It might work just fine for your use though. The ones we use cost about $10-$15 on eBay and there are only
  13. I think you'll find that the silver anode 6N2's are going to sound as good or better than any 12AX7 you can sub in it, but I'll be very interested in hearing what your experiences are! They have a lower floor noise and lower microphonics of most 12AX7's and are rated at up to 10K hrs of use. The bottom end is also supposed to be better as well. The single 6N1 can be directly subbed with a 6DJ8. We tried several brands including Bugle Boys and the 6N1 sounded better...( to us anyway). Interesting thread here...... https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/tubes-valves/65548-6922-vs-6n1p-bass-
  14. I just started a thread about these adapters and their use that includes some info about the 6N1 and 6N2 tubes and rolling tubes in the preamp.
