    L300

    1.) JBL L300 Summit 1977

    2.) Mark Levinson 380S Preamp

    3.) Nakamichi ST-7 Tuner

    4.) Nakamichi PA-7 Power Amp (200 watts)

    5.) Meridian 508.24 CD Player

    All components connected with Vampire C.C.C. interconnects with the Meridian 508.24 using balanced XLR. All housed in a Salamander Rack.

    The sound is nothing short of fantastic.........the effortless ease that the L300's replicate music is astonishing.

Reason being they are no longer in production or too costly to own them. If you really want to own them at a fraction of their retail price, you have to DIY.

    Take at look at :- http://www.geocities.com/ec1288/

    My systems are built from my DIY projects include Audio Note Ongaku amplifier, Pass Labs Aleph 5 amplifier, Altec Lansing A5 VOTT loudspeaker and Genesis ribbon and NHT 1259 loudspeaker.

    Main system is with 4430s

    5 - 4430s for surround duty (1 spare - One of my pair have eyehooks for suspension from the previous owner). Every one in a while one of my 4430s gets little scratchy - corrosion, dying capacitor? I don't know, I blast through with some high SPL and everything is good again.

    Epik 18" dynasty powered subwoofer

    Pioneer SC-25 receiver.

    100" projection onto wall with a Viewsonic pro8100 1080p front projector

    4 pairs of LSR32
    2 pairs of LSR28p (for when I pick up a Integra pre/pro with balanced outs)
    1 pair of lsr6328p
    4 LSR12p subwoofers.

    The LSRs are supposed to be the next iteration of the surround music system. Why do I have so many? I picked them up along the way for decent prices. It seems a lot of musicians who might use these in home systems are pressed for cash these days. crazedlist.org makes it easy to look for whatever jbls you're looking for.

    That said, I have to stop.

    OK, I'll try to be as descriptive as possible.

    My system is very very big, and very very dirty.

    There. That should just about cover it.

    systems
    .
    minimalistic, but flexible

    my home has...no living room TV..none of the bedrooms are slept in...

    I have a somewhat different idea of usage from most....took the 14x24 family room and use it for master bedroom...has fireplace & sliding glass door and a bit quieter.

    the living room is for talking or 2 channel stereo

    the LR main system is in a large oak console..on top is a large (19inch screen) Sony laptop connected by Toslink to an Adcom DAC underneath it....there is also the big Denon DP-60L TT .

    they both run to the BGW 203 preamp on the interior shelf , next down ...its on top of the power conditioner.

    next shelf is a Sony ES* CD player and ES Minidisk deck

    (*ES = Elevated Standard ..Sony's premium line.)

    records below

    in the hidden side is the BGW 750D amp (375wpc) , BGW 250D amp (125 wpc) , NAD receiver (40 wpc) , SRS unit and EQ

    the SRS & EQ are on the EQ loop and disengaged easily

    the 203 preamp has outputs to 2 amps ...1 line goes to the 750D and passes thru to the 250D ...the other line goes to the NAD and it pushes 2 M&K subs...the 750 runs the JBL 250ti's and the 250 runs the Ohm Walsh F's ....so can run JBL's OR Walsh's OR both from same source components

    Also in the LR is second (or is it third ??) system of Denon DP-45F TT , Sony ES CD & Sony ES minidisk running to a Denon DRA-775 receiver and NO permanent speakers (Yammys are currently on the wires)

    work area has Sony receiver , Kyocrea CD , Paradyme speakers

    main computer has a good soundcard outputting to a Technics receiver running both JBL L100's in the foot wells and Sonance 2 ways from the ceiling....Technics TT also

    on the bedroom systems ..they both share the AR90 towers,,,the HT side is a Denon AVR & DVD ...the center (JBL CL505),sub (JBL 10), rears (a/d/s) run directly to the amp...the fronts go to a switchbox ...(6 speaker pair and 2 amps, but only 1 set of speakers is connected) ..I switch the box in for the AR's to run HT and out for 2 channel to the AR's where it is fed by a 325 wpc (4 ohm) Adcom amp , Adcom preamp ..sourcing another Sony ES CD and minidisk and Pioneer TT ...there is also a stand alone CD to minidisk duplicator deck.

    The main bath has an Advent 400 Mono FM receiver with the matching Advent speaker....there is AUX input so I can plug in the pod when taking a bath

    for tunes in bed , I use the iPod touch and stream wireless Pandora , then thru a Teac amp to Sennheiser HD-580 headphones

    on the bike its just an iPod nano and clip-on ear buds...

    Flexible??? 2 different systems can use the AR90's and 2 different amps/speaker systems can use all the same source components.

    I don’t even know whats all in storage ,there are AR-428ps amplified towers and a/d/s L-1290 towers in reserve....each is roughly an L-7 equivalent.
    I'm getting tired of Winning ....

    My system morphed so many times, but I will describe what I have now with one piece of gear that steadfastly remains at the core: JBL L-96. All I needed to do was change the binding posts.

    I will posts pictures soon...my system now is in North Bergen, NJ...

    Amplification is a FujiTech (Monarchy Engineering)Luxman LX-33 EL34 Integrated amp with excellent phono and SS rectification.

    Integra DHC80.1,3x 4636LF, 2360-2446J 2404H,12 x 8340 Surrounds, 2 x4645B, BGW 250D's,250E's,& 750B's 16 amps...7600 watts

    The sound system is a result of purchasing the older stereo equipment from the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry when they went IMAX, so my system is modeled after their theater from 1990 until 2007. All amps have been rebuilt by the manufacturer's or the capacitors have been replaced by me to NOS standards.

    All that said, I've never had it louder than -8 dB; as otherwise it's too loud. Essentially this equipment was in a theater for 250 to 350 seats. One thing, in retirement I'm going to model the theater room like this one, which uses the sme equipment as me:

    http://www.film-tech.com/warehouse/w...d=15&category=

    Front End: Intregra 80.1

    Subs: 2 x 4546C JBL Pro NOS
    Sub Amp: BGW 750B bridged ~600W to 700 WPC 8 ohm into each sub
    Backup Amps: AB Systems 2 x 821 bridged mono 600 WPC + 1 BGW 750C bridged mono

    Front Speakers Left-Center-Right...each driven by a BGW 713A mono-tri-amp 500-250-250 8ohm
    Amps were freshly rebuilt by Precision Electronics (AB International owner)
    HF JBL2404H
    MidDriver 2446J making a deal for 8 ohm diaphragms....
    Mid Horn 2360
    LF:2206H

    Front Speakers High- left right driven by BGW 250E 105 WPC 8 ohm
    JBL Control 28's

    Surrounds.....all speakers driven by a separate bridged BGW 250D or 250E (250 WPC 8 ohm)

    12 X JBL 8340 surrounds >> all have been reconed and as new (yes a little overkill)

    DVD/CD Samsung BDC-6900
    DVD/CD Sony BDP-360

    WS LCD TV Samsung 9000 Series 240HZ so clear even Tombstone looks like a cartoon up close..incredible resolution

    iMac 2TB 16GB firewire with M-audio Pro 610 interface
    2 TB of music on 2 x 2 TB mirrored drives all at 320 kb/s (5800+ cd's)
    Integra DHC80.1,3x 4636LF, 2360-2446J 2404H,12 x 8340 Surrounds, 2 x4645B, BGW 250D's,250E's,& 750B's 16 amps...7600 watts

    the acoustics suck ...there is a hole in the roof and walls could use some work too , but the view of Athens (no, not Georgia) is fantastic...

    If only.....

    My wife didn't understand what - 8 dB means. But she does, so she's always ready to see where I've got the level at. Really typically we never go louder than -20 to -21 dB.

    And it all got started by looking for 18" 2245H's my friend from the Museum had, he complained that no one wanted to pay shipping, I said "I'll take all 12, drove down from Milwaukee and went to south Chicago that evening; and a friendship was made.

    Fortunately they went IMAX, and I picked up on all their BGW and AB Systems amps. Bob at Precision Electronic's (owner of AB International, AB Systems etc) had just done 7 x 713's for the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum this past November prior to renovating the three I have in January; so they have pretty good provenance. BTW I got l all their old JBL Pro drivers; and all thier NOS speakers as well (2445J/2446J, 2404H, 2202H, 2204H).

    My wife had some doubt, but was sold over when she heard the system.

    Linn LP12 w/Dynavector 17d2
    Squeezebox touch (streaming SPDIF to pre/pro) playing my flac library
    Smart TV features for streaming (Vizio M series)
    Sony PS4 Pro (DVD/BluRay)

    Pre/Pro: McIntosh MX-121

    Amps:
    Hypex NCore Monoblocks (DIY assembly but NCore is only available as finished boards)
    Dayton SA1000 sub amp

    Speakers:
    Front- 4.5 cu ft vented cabs with BD15 woofers, QSC-style waveguide with tymphany 1" compression drivers (it's a hell of a smooth combo)
    Rear- Occam Audio MTM4
    Sub- 4x12" in 10cu ft, dual push-pull manifolds, sealed

    Display- 50" Vizio M-Series 4k



    Speakers get played with pretty frequently, so a week from now the fronts may be dual 12" subs per side (NHT) with diy bipole/dipole waveguide coax system (JBL 328CT w/waveguide baffles, front and rear firing, open sides)

    Hello from Spain ... I see this forum and there are great systems that I would like ... but I do not have space for some big boxes that I would like. Here I leave my main system because the other is not composed of jbl devices but the industry of the BBC.
