    Well, if water is a problem, you could try cleaning it with naphtha or acetone. Naphtha would be my first choice.

    Other than "audiophiles", collectors, and old farts, I don't know anyone who still spin silver discs.

    That said, the 2235H has measurably lower distortion and because of its...

    A 136H frame and motor is identical to the 2235H frame and motor. If both cones are identical, then you have identical drivers with the only difference being the foilcals.

    I have seen them go for $600 - $2500 a pair. Condition and location are the biggest variables... also there is the L200 which you have and the more desirable L200B with the 136A woofer and improved...

    I wouldn’t add a fuse. As long as you don’t clip your amplifier you shouldn’t have any problems. They aren’t going to fill a stadium with sound, but in typical domestic settings you should be fine...

    I strongly urge anyone interested in music to try the Roon interface. As HCSGuy says, it manages your library and merges it with Tidal or Qobuz seamlessly and audio quality is excellent.
