    Have upgraded since the above posting.

    Replaced the Classe' CD player with a Phillips SACD 1000 (modified by Alex at APL HiFi) and added an "analog" section; VPI Scoutmaster TT w a Sumiko Blackbird cart, Quicksilver tube Phono Pre-Amp, VPI SDS power unit for the TT, a VPI 16.5 record cleaning machine and a Vantage rack to put it all on.
    Made my own (DIY) interconnects using DH Labs Pro -Studio cable and thier Ultimate RCA Connectors (gladd I never sold off my LP collection......sometimes it does pay to be a sort of a pack rat)............

    Took a Mc Intosh MA-6100 Amp/pre-amp unit I had in storage and mated it with a Mc Intosh MR-74 tuner I found recently at a local audio shop and pulled out a pair of JBL 4311WXA'S I had been sitting on and moved the Classe" CD player to that system and put it all on a Vantage rack. Set it up in another room downstairs....Sounds pretty good for vintage Mac SS........

    My system changed again.

    Now I have McIntosh MC40's (brought to specs by McTech) driving EV-12TRXB's with the back of the cabinets removed. Still have the David Berning TF-10 tubed preamp, and now a new VPI Scout TT with Dynavector 20X cart..

    This is my main system for music listening

    Hello all and Happy Holidays! In the system I keep in the living room. I have a set of JBL 250Ti's in the Teak veneer finish. They are powered by a McIntosh MC 352 that is connected to a McIntosh C2200 tube preamp along with a McIntosh MCD 205 CD player and a McIntosh MR-85 Tuner. The home theater also is all McIntosh with JBL SVA 1600 up front left and right with the SVA center speaker. In the rears I am using Klipsch because of the horns. JBL just doesn't make anything that hangs on the wall that is at the same level as the SVA's. Cheers, Frank

    Welcome Frank, I believe we have crossed paths on Ebay more than once. I sold you a set of 075's last year and we've bid on many of the same items. Glad to see you stumbled upon the forum. You'll love this place!

    This message comes form JBL Dog

    Just redid the living room, moved out the Xmas tree and put in a new sofa and love seat...so.....I had to move the JBL 4343's...
    I have my living room set up for both HT and stereo..
    On the floor laying on their sides are a pair of 4343's for left and right for either stereo or HT, 2405's were turned when I got them, so they actually sound better this way until I set them up correctly and redo the cabs and make a grill cover for them.
    On top of the 4343's are a pair of Altec Valencia's with 515B's instead of the 416z's redid at 8 ohms.
    For center speaker that the TV sits on...an home built of solid black walnut cabinet from 1957 from Altec plans with 811 horn, 802C driver and 416 woofer.
    For sub... Contra Bass.
    Receiver, Yamaha R-V1105
    dvd player Pioneer DV-333
    Amp for 4343's, Altec 9440A
    Amp for Contra Bass, Altec 9440A
    Kitchen... sitting on top of cabinets facing sink area...pair of JBL L65's
    Rear speakers for HT...Tannoy C6....modified

    Attic...piles of goodies for future plans...
    2-411-8A NIB..... I know they need new surrounds.
    Lots of 416's ..... Altec and Heathkit logo's
    811 and 511 horns and numerous small format drivers
    Some JBL and Altec componet speakers, tweeters and misc. goodies, cabs etc. 2nd pair of L65's.
    On the mainland @ mom's..in storage, A7/500 original plywood cabs.
    In her living room...pair of Santiago's
    At a friends house on loan... pair of Barcelona's with original black surrounds that need to be changed.

    Now how to figure out how to put a 70mm screen in the living...I'd be happy.... well for maybe a month or so.....

    mon system

    bonjour
    vous avez un system qui ressemble beaucoup pour certains de ces elements a celui que je possede:
    -JBL 4430
    -CROWN DC 300 SERIES 2
    -CROWN DC 150 SERIES 2
    -CROWN D75

    j'aurai quelque questions a vous posé si cela ne vous derage pas:
    -utilisez vous vos 4430 en bi-amplification ?
    -si oui quel type de filtre actif utilisez vous ?
    -quel sont les amplis que vous utilisé de preferences ?
    pour ma par j'ecoute mes 4430 en biamplification avec un filtre DBX DRIVERACK PA (frequence 1 KHz / 24 DB LC) avec le DC 300 dans le grave et le D75 dans l'aigu (je viens d'acheter le DC 150 ,que je n'est pas encore)

    a+
