    That pre is a jewel....I cannot stress enough how good it is...The shop were I bought it last year has another one in the back with the tech,,,I may jump at that one as a spare...I can only imagine what some good Telefunken or Mullard tubes would do in the phono section...

    Mike,

    Sounds like you are compensating for something. Damn those are some BIG speakers. I don't know if beast is the word.

    Junior:

    If You are using a UPS, most probably it has a switching output with some sort of modified square wave; Not kind to amp power supplies, You can check the waveform with a 'scope.

    If I run the unit without the batteries it should be just conditioning, or I can still use the HUGE transformer to filter the bad. Do you think that is a problem? Your input is very welcome!

    It depends on Yr UPS, try a scope with at least 380V probes, disconnecting it from the wall, to check the waveform; Unless it is pretty sophisticated, when the line voltage is OK, it just runs direct from the wall, and uses the transformer to charge the batteries, if it is a common one, when the line drops, it switches to battery power, usually using a simple oscillator, which might produce square or modified square wave, computers do not mind, as they transform it in turn to 5, 9V semi DC, which is fine for digital circuits but not for amps; in short, use the 'scope.

    hi all,
    i think am very lucky to have the system i have. i found the cabinets at a local music hall and saved them from further misuse by buying them and putting them in my living room. originally the 2" drivers were mounted in the LF horn throat with H5041 90 degree horns, but i eventually pulled them out and mounted 2397's. i added the 2405's to extend the HF response. they are added in around 14kHz with a simple first order capacitor filter.

    LOW: C-40 Harkness cabinets loaded with 150-4C drivers

    MID: 375 with 2397 horn - 1 original 375 diaphragm and sadly 1 needed replacement - replaced with a new D16R2440.

    HIGH: 2405 (alnico).

    crossover - N400

    power amps - 1950's Ampex professional 6v6 monoblocks.

    i mostly listen to LP's or my own original digital recordings. i am a producer/engineer by trade and i also do audio mastering.
