    I did, and found it a bit odd. Figured it must have been a blown take or a practice run-through.

    Did you see the B&O announcement of around 95 refurbished 4000-series turntables being offered for $11k, each? Wonder how much they'll pay for the two I own?

    Thanks. I really enjoyed that!

    You're in a large metro area which helps because no one likes to ship these.

    But you're in an area where vintage JBLs are ubiquitous, too.

    $1,200 is the number that came to my mind. But...

    Thanks.

    I hope anyone checking this person out makes it through to the third song. There's a lot of talent inside that body and soul.

    It is the JBL sound I grew up with ever since my father's first mono system in 1958. There is a certain magic in the way the D130 reproduces the sound of strings from cello to guitar. Very easy to...

    I wonder if the 052ti was an eventual improvement? Any specs available on that tweeter?

    Anyone tried this one? https://reconingspeakers.com/product/jbl-052ti-035tia-tweeter-replacement/

    Looks like a nice replacement speaker for yours but, before you spend half the value of your speaker pair, have you determined if your open circuit is between the terminal and the diaphragm, or...

    Forgot to say if you want mirror-image, just cut a hole for the 075 in an opposite corner and cover the old hole with a blanking plate from the back. JBL did it on all their enclosures for mirroring...

    The D130 doesn't have a "surround" per se. The cone has its integrated roll to accommodate its excursion. Later versions used a black treatment around the edge to help preserve that "roll" from...

    By "open" do mean electrically as in DCR measurement, or do mean open as in the mounting holes for them are empty, like you didn't get any tweeters with the speakers?

    Could be very fixable. Lots...

    FYI: I believe what the elders here are implying, in an indirect fashion, is that in most cases Lansaloy surrounds were attached to the front of the cones, originally and intentionally.
