    Thanks Rusnzha, it pales to your system.


    I like the S412Ps, they've served me well, mostly at ear-bleed volume levels, for hours every day, for years (I actually forget when I got them new). Lately the sub amp's going out on one, though. You can see I don't fit the "Hi"-Fi profile but that's what I'm doing here, trying to find something that works for me at more sane levels. I'm growing up, and it's about time.

    Sounds like you're in the right place.

    Well, maybe not?

    This is the sort of system most here seem to want:

    They should sound good at comfortable listening levels, but it may depend on room treatment.

    Yes, they do, just that I have a itchy volume knob finger, and they sound so darn good cranked up. Maybe a bit of source point issue at low volume levels; the tweets being so far from the woofers. I surely am not disappointed with them, and will continue to use them. Was disappointed to have missed getting those spare parts off that auction site awhile back...

    Thank you gentlemen for the kind welcome.

    Hi, new member here. I just recently lost my JBL virginity when I ran across a pair of beautiful blue 4301Bs in my girlfriend's dad's junk shed while looking for a nightstand. They had spent their entire lives in a TV studio until he rescued them from being thrown out recently. Anyway, he simply let me have them.

    My modest system now consists of:

    Speakers: JBL 4301B
    Preamp: Improved Dynaco PAS-3
    Power Amp: Magnavox AMP-185 chassis (2 channels of 6V6 push-pull), modified to AMP-175 circuit.
    Turntable: Technics SL-1200MK2
    CD: Grundig CD-903

    I am impressed with these little guys. I can hardly imagine how good the bigger JBLs must sound, and I'm definitely keeping my eyes open for more!

    I can just imagine the splitting headache from that system afterwards followed by tinnitus!

    Sansui 907 integrated amp
    Denon CDP
    2 x Technics SL 10 linear tracking TTs
    The Sansui has 2 discrete TT inputs, one of which is switchable. CD is attached to the aux input and the TV is attached to the Tuner input. It's an old amp, but the headroom to cope with the varying inputs.




    Yamaha NS-1000X on high stands. The bookshelves behind the speakers make for very effective and quite tunable room damping.
    Attached to the TV for both sound and vision are a Mac Mini, Oppo DVD, Wii and a VHS/DVD player. I use the TV's DAC to output to the amp at the other side of the room. There is an outboard DAC in the rack, but it isn't attached as it makes absolutely no difference whatsoever to the sound. The TV does a fine job for routing the various AV signals from that side of the room.

    The speakers are bigger brothers of the NS-1000M. Essentially the same Be mid and treble drivers in a taller, wider and more massive cabinet (427mm wide × 695mm high × 335mm deep x 42kgs each), but with a very exotic 12" driver that features a longitudinally corrugated carbon-fibre woven cone and a Strontium magnet (!!!). The model is from circa 1984.

    The speaker stands are JBL

    Well, we have two things in common at least: Wii and Oppo.

    I have a pair of JBL stands, too, but not like yours.
    Out.

    I got some pretty decent stuff with no room to set it up, so it lives quietly in cardboard boxes...
