    I haven't actually owned 590's or L7's, but I have heard the L7's. When I went to pick up my 2nd Adcom GFA-555 II, the seller had L7's hooked up to the Adcom. Now, it could have been the so called...

    Oh, that's disappointing. I was pondering about having a set of those for surround speaker duties. Or one of them for a center channel.

    UPDATE!:

    I really feel like a dummy, now that I've fixed my issue with the 2214H's. Problem with the flabby bass and "BRAP!" or voice coil bottoming was all in my crossover settings. I did some...

    Hey, my Kenmore keeps my beer nice and cold just as my Adcom GFA- 555II's please my ears while driving my XPL200's. Why pay more to achieve a similar result? As I said with my first post, I'm open...

    Oh yeah, they sure do. Both of mine sound like someone going "tap..tap" on a counter just as the red light fade out from each. And when they switch on, the woofer gets sucked into the cabinet until...

    The 555 II has one of those well, but with four for the rails conveniently located above them.

    Yep, I've heard that too- same kind of stuff people say about Crown amps and all that. Don't believe...

    Try a GFP-555? I think you'd dig it. I can't comment on the GFA 555 other than I really like the GFA 555 II. I've had to replace the rail fuses on my 555 II's, was fast and easily done via the...

    McIntosh.. IMO, they're the SubZero of the audio world. Never heard one, just as I've never had a SubZero chill my perishables. Perhaps I'd subscribe to their Kool-Aid after a taste. Until then,...

    Had some more time in the listening seat to audition all this gear I've acquired. Synopsis:

    Adcom GFP-555 > Dynaco PAT-5 > > Marantz 3600

    For >800hz:
    Carver TFM 55x > Adcom GFA 555 II > Crown...
  11. Dynaco PAT-5

    This preamp came in the other day, listened to it for a bit yesterday.

    At first, I wanted to hate it and thought it would stink. But, after several key tracks (Classical Gas, Night Moves, Goodbye...
  12. Yeah, I think mine are later models. I've never,...

    Yeah, I think mine are later models. I've never, ever seen a pair of early JBL's with consecutive serial numbers, only close. However, these are consecutive and have "A" at the end of them,...
  13. Thanks Jeff. I can't seem to find any that have...

    Thanks Jeff. I can't seem to find any that have the same head diameter as the originals so looks like I have to use them. But, at least now I know what T nuts to buy, thanks to you. :applaud:
  14. Oh.. Welp, I didn't pay much for it at all. So...

    Oh.. Welp, I didn't pay much for it at all. So hopefully, it actually works and isn't too terrible. It could be the unit I put in the garage. Tonight I'm hoping to have the showdown between the...

    My collection of vintage audio gear continues to grow: +1 Dynaco PAT-5 preamp by member suggestion. Well, Seawolf recommended a PAT-4 but close enough, right? Anyway, the only reviews I can find on...
  16. I can't compare the 590, but I can say I've heard...

    I can't compare the 590, but I can say I've heard L7's through some sort of 90's Kenwood preamp and Adcom GFA 555 II amp, the very amp I bought and have been using the past eight months or so. They...
  17. JBL L150A - Crossover mounting board fastener size?

    Hello everyone,

    Quick question, WTF is the fastener size of the black screws which go through the back of the cabinet and hold the crossover to the cabinet? I'm not sure if they're metric or SAE,...

    Haven't heard about the PSA-2, I shall look them up. Can confirm about the Macrotech line, the 2402's I have are both incredibly and deceptively heavy. The first time you see one, you'll estimate...

    I appreciate the info, Seawolf!

    Hmm. I didn't find any 750's for sale. Really wish I could rent this stuff before committing to buy it. But, it sounds like those amps wouldn't be my cup of...

    Cool stuff. Which BGW models would provide a more relaxed or warmer sound? Based on my findings over the weekend, I need at least 400w for the bottom end and probably 300 for the mid and highs.

  21. Oh, thanks for the clarification grumpy. My...

    Oh, thanks for the clarification grumpy. My Marantz pre has a 30hz filter option that I'm not using because the Ashly XR1000 claims to have a 20hz high pass filter already integrated into it. ...
  22. Please correct my ignorance, BGW's? That's a...

    Please correct my ignorance, BGW's?

    That's a nice looking pre, affordable too! Was trying to find another one <$300, I might just try that. Was thinking of a new one from Emotiva, which has a...

    Turns out one of the switches wasn't fully engaged in a position. Once I cycled those a few times on the K2, all was well. You were right about the sensitivity settings, I don't know what I was...

    Thanks for your input Mike, much appreciated.

    Oh, I did not know that about the fans. Yes, each fan was caked with dust. Although perhaps "caked" is too hard, they're just worse than I expected,...

    Thanks Jeff.

    I think I'll buy two of the spiders and see where that takes me. This might end up being a wash- I have reconed & functional PR300's currently, I just wanted to get back to the...
