    Sorry for being lazy, Earl K

    Beautifully done, very subtle and imho with no break at all rgd the original technical intentions & perhaps even slightly refining the aesthetics of an already very pleasing industrial design

    Sign o' the times

    Well, seeing them today, it's hard to believe these are mid '70s. But, there's nothing as strong as an idea whose time has come (thus quoz *they*, not Hugo)

    Fine units no longer original unless that shop has the exact kits. Btw, re-reading the thread, i realize *the* likely cause is the pole has shifted sideways due to a strong bump during transport.

    Hi,
    is the foam of the other (working) 2203a still OK?
    If not, maybe go for a swap to a little bit more modern pair of drivers like Beyma 12B100R. Many other brands are possible, even current...

    Thanks for the tip-off, Thomas.
    Cones are black, not white as in the LS/4 picture.

    Arrrgh, i had to get them, although i am currently rather in selling than buying mood.

    You were looking at a PTR7/III. Had you never opened yours? 3D? -- no.

    doesn't that basically bring down the argument to that of slot size (rectangular or circular "slot") for being the source of the better dispersion?

    Yes, agree this will work from 700 if x/o steeply, and "upstairs" the Be ribbon will help to offset matters.

    2243/2245 have proper copper coils, 2242's use toy wire. Don't like the sound of it.
    Surely correct what you say with respect to 2243 vs 2242 Xmax. 2242H does not offer Xmax as high as 2245H/J,...
