    ST 70 not bad

    I wouldn't snicker at a nice Dyna ST70 no matter what you hear from the higher end people.
    I rebuilt one to "stock" except for the output tube bias supply that needed to be adjusted to compenstae...

    There's the thread

    Thanks Zilch. I swear the brain farts get longer for every year I get older.
    That thread was here after all. LOL

    Model 19 EQ and 806/802G HF

    It sounds like your doing almost the same thing as I am in the way of EQ with the 19's and with the same results but I'm using my Mac C-22 preamp for the EQ.
    I have the bass trim pots turned up not...

    Flat position on controls

    The factory didn't provide a "flat" position so it could be that they felt the flatest response curve in a dead room is not flat in your listening room so user adjustable was the best way to go. Of...

    After thought info

    If you replace the caps in 19's like you probably should just because of the age of the originals, the choice is personal taste and depends on your flavor of coloration because IMHO all caps are...

    Ya never know

    I hemmed and hawed about 19's too but all I read about them made me wonder too.

    I knew I liked the "basic" sound of the Flamencos and all I read lead me to believe that what I didn't like about...

    Vocals and jazz

    I'm an LP person that uses vintage McIntosh tube equipment with the 19's and I'm into what I call 1950's-1960's jazz, Brazilian type or Bossa Nova style stuff, male-female vocals with some rock and...

    nobody else have any comments for Listener2?

    Looks like it's a two way conversation on the 19's.
    The 19's will be different than a single driver for sure. Especially in a large room, not that they really need a huge room to sound good in. ...

    More on the 19's

    I guess to simplify things you can say that the 19 xovers are 2nd order but that doesn't mean much in itself.
    The efficiency of the drivers is really more of an issue than what's wasted in the...

    Model 19's-Valencia

    I wouldn't worry about what looks like a complex xover in the Model 19 because it really isn't that complex nor should it amount to anything to speak of in the way of using a ten watt amp over...

    Travisty,

    Since you can borrow the tweeters you have nothing to lose by trying what I did in adding tweeters to my Model 19's.

    I've had my 19's going on two years and I've heard them sound 30 or 40 different ways by changing associated equipment and tinkering with them.

    Hey Analog Addict. What timing! I just discovered the same thing with my 19's.

    No Skywave-Rider. I do mean 27KHZ.
    The 8 ohm tweeters are added with just a .68 cap in series with them and they are connected to the same 8 ohm amp taps that the Model 19's are connected to as in...

    Altec Lansing Fan,

    While building your xovers, did you try removing the first small inductor before the 2.7 and the HF pot then just run the HF line direct to the + input?

    Or did you find...

    Mr Widget,
