    I'm very surprised to hear this.

    How did you miss out on one of these?

    As do I!

    It didn't take me long to "fall in love" with the L-100s either. I have been very fond of the L-100 and the professional variants (4310, 4311 and 4312) ever since.

    Not to be nit-picky, but I would like to correct some wrong information here.

    In 1975, L-100s listed for $318.00

    In 1976 they listed for $333.00

    In 1977 they listed for $489.00

    I...

    My friend Steve

    It is with great sadness that I see it confirmed here what I had suspected, that Steve has lost his battle with cancer.

    I never met him in person, but we talked on the phone quite a bit. I...

    Shall we attempt to account for them all?

    And I have a few of those 125,000 pairs in my "Stereo Den" as well. ;)

    I agree completely with the suggestion of Go West.

    Without the mothball odor, though.

    My listening room has often been mistaken for a museum.

    Power Line Four

    Since BMWCCA was so kind as to post a picture of a PS-400, I thought that I would post a picture of a Power Line Four for the benefit of those who have never seen one.

    The detail picture shows the...

    Crown Amps

    Power Line Fours usually go for a little more than PS-400s probably due to the fact that they are somewhat rarer. Not necessarily any better, but they do have the additional indicators on the front...

    I think most would agree that the quadrex grilles are part of the real L-100 experience, but the JBL replacement grille cloth inserts look a lot better than the first picture you have posted.

    Mine were "in continual use" and I was so unhappy when they started deteriorating. I bought my cloth replacements directly from JBL and was so glad to get them!

    I have been seriously considering...

    Cloth grilles for L-100s

    Was the deteriorating foam more in character of the L-100 for you? :D

    I wasn't too happy about the situation, but to me, the JBL replacement grille cloth was the only really good option we had at...
  13. It makes you wonder

    There have been frequent references to AK. A fellow posted a thread there about his "great find" complete with fabulous pictures and a majestic tale about how much he was going to treasure them. Of...

    Congratulations on making two smart decisions : :applaud:

    1. Buying quality in 1977.

    2. Keeping them for a long time and taking care of them.

    The right combination?

    This might explain why the combination of JBL L-100s, 4310s, 4311s or 4312s with large vintage Crown Amplifiers such as the DC300AII, Power Line Four or PS-400s sound good.

    There may be better...

    I don't think so!

    No, it's not just you (and you thought you were special :D ).

    I have multiples of the PS-400 and I can third the recommendation!

    Personal recommendation

    I can easily recommend the use of a vintage Crown Power Amp. I have used DC300AIIs, Power Line Fours and PS-400s with nary a problem for many years.

    They are very stable, rugged and sound very...
