    Hi Alex...

    Well, thanks for compliment and your right and false...

    This spike is not spike it is a mecanical diode and permit to put is same level and plan the speakers. the feet is a spkite to go in steel feet receptacle with zinc resonnance control, and permit a good anchor in floor with-out crunch in wood... Because the "head" of feet is little mobile, it is adapt to defect angle of wood and better link but 90% result is same with invert round head bolt....

    the best is slab with round head bolt but all is compromise...

    I'm a UK devotee of the old JBL sound ( 15" drivers and horns ) a taste which I acquired while working in the US about 40years ago. I made the mistake of selling the speakers ( can't recall the name, S-something in a very nice fretted enclosure) before my return to the UK. I now have a pair of L150A, with Sumo Polaris and Athena pre-amp, and Mission Cyrus CD and tuner. I had to recone the 12" drivers and PRs...very expensive in the UK. I also deadened the cabinets with thick bitumen felt pads.

    I admit to migrating from vinyl to digital and PC much more convenient. I'm hoping photos are here!

    My System

    I currently use a vintage pair of JBL C-33's driven by a nicely set up Bogen DS-265 power amp.Runs P-P 7027's with three GZ-34's for supply.It's basically stock.Audio Research Sp-3a with all mods removed even the Allegro sound travesty that the previous owner put it through.Its now stock except for an extra stage of DC gain in the P.S. Theirs pix of my speaks in the c-33 post elswhere in this forum.signal is supplied by a pioneer close and play type turntable with a dynavector M.C. cart.I built a homemade preamp for the cart with four 6CW4 nuvistors that runs on 8 d batteries and 18 9volt transistor batteries set up for 6v filament and 70 v b+.It sound very nice!!My tuner is a Fisher FM-1000 with the last audio stage(EF-86) bypassed.Or sometimes an R200-b .There's also a Fisher SA-300b amp and the big one SA-1000 that i use sometimes.It's gotten so valuable that i am afraid to put it to regular service!I also have lots (3 pair,2 singles) of 604's both b's and c's .They just have something!!!!!!!!I don't know what but it's there!!Also have some RCA theater stuff around too.Have a self modded pair of MI-9448 drivers that now use current production titanium diaphragms and they have to be heard to be believed!I have been doing this stuff since 1966 and should have joined this site ages ago!!

    No way I can type or remember all the details of all the fun stuff weighing this house down. Quick list:

    JBL 4333AWX (2)
    JBL L110 (2)
    JBL L46 (4)
    ...three other pair of JBLs I can't remember, they're at my parent's house
    Canton Karat 20 (4)
    Canton Plus S (2)
    Canton Patio 160 (2)
    Canton Plus XL Center (2)
    Canton something-or-others (2)
    Boston Acoustics A40 (4)
    KEF center channel
    JBL TR225 (2) (vocal monitors in studio)
    Cerwin Vega cabs w/JBL E120 & can't-remember upgraded tweeters & x-overs (vocal monitors in studio)
    Velodyne, NHT, M&K, and other subwoofers
    ...also 1 18" and 3 15" JBL raw drivers lying around, forget the #s. Oh, and an Altec 2 x 15" cabinet I use for bass guitar. Some Altec stereo speakers somewhere, too. Some Polks, some in-walls, I'm forgetting others, I'm sure.

    Crown DC300
    Yamaha P2100 (4)
    ADA Rhapsody 12 channel
    Audio Control Architect 12 channel
    Elan Z-series 6 channel
    Denon Integrated Amps (5)
    Yamaha, Technics & Marantz surround receivers
    Nakamichi, Pioneer, Kenwood & Denon stereo receivers
    Adcom Pre & 4 channel power amp
    ...others I'll remember right after clicking "Submit"

    Audio Request 160 Gb music servers (3)
    Denon (2), Pioneer (5+), Sony (3+), Phillips, Nakamichi, Alesis, other CDs
    Can't remember what TTs are left, sold the Micro Seiki, Mits and Conrad Johnson
    Teac, Tascam, Eumig, Denon, Pioneer, Nakamichi cassettes
    Sony & Panasonic DATs

    ...the kicker? Almost all of this stuff arrived here free. Broken, but free (the Audio Requests are demo units, I help them with R&D and testing). I design & install AV systems for gazillionaires, and this is the stuff they throw out. I also have two plasma TVs (Fujitsu & NEC) and two projection systems (Runco & Barco), all free. Most of my PA system and recording studio components got here the same way (broken & cheap or free). Guitars, too.
    je, looking for a bigger house

    It's too bad you can't get a free house.

    (Really, it's just my immature, petty jealousy showing.) Why does Fred get all the good stuff?

    It's not just Fred that gets the good stuff, Fred's friends & family get the spillover stuff quite often. There's a buddy in Alabama that gets most of the Altec and Adcom loot when I'm done with it. One of my brothers has 50" and 40" TVs that I passed on. This friend's showroom here has my old Bryston 4B, McIntosh MC40, and Sansui BA5000 power amps:

    je (not really a Fred, they just whistle that theme song at my office whenever I'm lugging dusty old gear to my truck...)
