    now that the bigger speakers are out of my storage room , I can actually see what other treasures are in there

    was hauling out smaller speakers yesterday....found a pair of Advent Baby III's and some Logik L-10's
    (made in Canada) .....put them on the test rig to evaluate.

    Now I always kinda liked the sound of Advents, BUT , those little Logik's just outclassed the bigger Baby's by a large margin. Remembered that Logik wasnt around for very long...did they morph into somebody else or just disappear ??

    mechanical operation is silent and sure and smooth ....sounds good , tho I think it can sound better ...printed out the manual (thanx) and will double check all the settings. Appears all original and doubt the anything has been adjusted since being boxed.

    put on a newerish (50g ?) disk yesterday ....it was quite a bit floppy...one of those TV ad specials...the center hole was very tight over the spindle and I didnt get it all the way on/down...so when it started up , well..it was like a carnival ride.

    the Denon dynamic servo tracer arm tracked it beautifully, up & down with abt 1/2 inch deflection...but no problem.


    the owners manual showed a DL-60 cart supplied, but it has a DL-160 ....looked up the specs and recommended tf is 1.6g (+- .3) ..it was set at 1.8 , I like to go light as operationally feasible , so set it at 1.3g , and its really nice there.

    Please tell me there was a 70's era pentastar MOPAR ignition key on the ring. I swear, after the day I've had that would absolutely make my night!

    I think I mentioned in another post quite some time ago that I had a pair of ESS Labs Heil Air-Motion based speakers, and as I recall them (though we're going back quite some time, and I hope my tastes have refined over the years) the top end was marvelous. Did you ever hook these up for a run?

    OK...bring your Swinger over here and we'll give the keys a try...


    So I was back out on the bike today and walked into SA ....I could see large speakers in the back of the store that sure looked (from 60 feet) like Jubals .... scurried over to them and NO,
    not JBL ...they were Bozak , Listener Series LS400 .....no price on them, called for a price check and the manager gave me a deal ..paid for them and gotta go pick them up tomorrow.

    (stock web pic of the later A model ) - except the ones I bought have 2 tweets twinned together aimed 90 degrees apart

    Angry The FUN is over....

    .
    So I went to GeeDub salvage abt 2 weeks ago, as I was walking in ..a friend was walking out. He asked if I wanted the stuff in his cart as he was tapped out....I took a look..a tired old HK receiver and a pair of SpeakerLab 1's ....the SL1's looked like cheapo's ...8 inch, 2 way ...
    vinyl peeling around the edges, woofer sealed in with bathroom caulk ...etc

    Even tho i estimated them to be 5 , mebbe 10 bux , I left them there.

    Last weekend I went back ...the SL1's were still there , tho now over in the speaker section...I looked at them again ....price sticker WAS $135 ....get me outta there, NOW.

    But today went over to a church retail thrift and found a pair of RS MiniMouse 7's ....
    in "LIKE NEW CONDITION" ....tag was $2 ...seems I'm now better off in the retail thrifts than the salvage ones...

    Ran across this today on Jerry Pournelle's site - figured with your biking and such you might be interested in helping green up the Pac Northwest - it seems to be a nicely done site ...

    havnt seen many tree octos ...lots of skunks (mainly on CL) and its squirrel city ...and rather weird , we've had multi generations of house finches living in my patio rafters since 1977 ..all of a sudden last weekend , a new behavior from the flock ...for 2 days they would hover just outside the windows starring IN and sometimes pecking on the glass ....never figured what that was all about ..mebbe they just want to listen to the tunes ??

    I redid the 3 active systems with 100% Philips and they have never sounded better ..I'm on an anti Ch1na products jihad , but the rca's were just peachy.
