    Well, I haven't had good experiences with the handful of Yamaha stuff I've tried. I suppose I'm open to trashing my original concept of building a better late 70's early '80's setup than my dad had...

    Ah, thanks for the dime drop.

    I did some research and then stumbled upon this thread within this very own forum which has everything I found and more:...

    Those would make pretty darn good garage speaks. I personally like the Northridge stuff, seems to be the last of the stuff made before the switch to China. I run the last variant of Northridge;...

    Well, I think that ship has sailed. Guy got miffed at my explanation for my offer of $500. Eh, if he had responded I guess I'd have conceded to $600. The cabinets, while scuffed and such, did not...

    Well yesterday was a day of discovery. With the 510M wounded I didn't feel comfortable driving it hard but for science I did anyway to compare loudness levels of it vs that crummy Yamasuck receiver....

    I'll download this and replace the one I downloaded over the weekend, thanks for the tip!

    On that note, I went and ordered an SPL meter as I learned that my phone self limits to about 85dB A...

    Thanks SEAWOLF, just the type of response I was hoping to read in regards to the 240Ti's. What you said is pretty much what I told the seller, that I understand the parts could potentially be worth...

    Thanks for the replies fellas.

    Well then, if I haven't insulted the guy I'll honor my original offer of $600. I did know about the poly cone, how I originally spotted it. That and the frame is...

    Yeah, that's the impression I was left with after researching those Column II's. Cabinets and such were beautiful but the drivers I saw and read about just stalled me out, so I missed out on them. ...

    I think you might be right, that I am expecting too much. I went through and reread Chris Brown's post about his L150's and he describes the same thing. Also says he reminds himself not to drive...

    Thanks for the response David!

    Well, borrowing one would sure be nice, but none of my friends are into audio gear so I've got access to no other amps. I could drag up my modern Marantz SR7005 but...

    Thanks for the response Earl!

    Oh, that's a bummer... I just started to like this Marantz stuff too, and I'm afraid I've got too much into it to be able to go to something else. What amp would you recommend from those guys and...

    Well, I got my 510M and 3600 preamp back yesterday. Hooked all that stuff up and began to test things out. Something on the amp which never worked before were the "PEAK" lights for each channel. I...

    Awesome, original 128H's!

    Do you remember if the back of the woofer cones smooth or textured? I can't make it out from the pic.. They look to be smooth & black.

    My reconer showed up as certified by JBL and you can even look her up through Harmon's website. But, I'm guessing she is no longer certified or doesn't have access to the portal like sguttag does. ...

    Thanks for your input, macaroonie! So what about component swapping with my L150A's? I'm thinking of replacing the 044 with the 044Ti, and perhaps the x/o network. Guy selling the x/o network...

    In which ways? Certainly not cosmetically, but the drivers appeal to me. The 128H's in the 150's are pretty acclaimed as is the 044Ti tweeter, which if I did the swap I'd have. Please go into detail...

    I sure thought about it for awhile and that is ultimately the conclusion I settled upon. The wife and I rather like how they look now. :)
