last Saturday I picked up a Technics SL-D2 DD table w/o head or cart. So I found a generic head and middle of the road Shure cart and aligned it by sight and hooked up. Wow !! the fullness blew me away. Dug out the old records and found a JBL Sessions double that I'd gotten from the dealer. It was so good that I listened to all four sides twice and dubbed it off to mini disk.
Since it did speaker testing ( various instruments and freq sweeps) , I turned off the sub and 4410's in the rears so as just to hear the Walsh's. There just are not enough superlatives to describe the sound. Fantastic !!
Forum member Magnepan has been over a couple times in the last 2 weeks listening to them, maybe I can coax a review out of him..
May just leave it in and clean the baffle around it.
picked up this beautifull pair of SONANCE speakers today. Wish they said JBL on them as they sound so outstanding...web shows retail of $400-500.
its essentially the same speaker as this..
filled the truck today - M&K sats . MicroAcoustics, AR38's, Pioneer HPM's and JBL L-36's (but only 1 grill)
I am constantly amazed at the bounty you acquire. You must be Rick Cobb's best customer though.
( I traded for the L36's - 2 turntables that combined were $8....almost makes up for the real money that I've spent for audio gear in the past))
You are truly certifiable!
. . . . the kind of example I point out to my wife whenever she thinks my hobbies have pushed me over the edge. That's why one of my best friends is a young guy with 42 motorcycles.
The L-36 grill is exactly 13.5x24
Do you still have your 4412s? Once you've refoamed the Horizons I'd be interested in your A/B impressions, if you'd be inclined to do such a comparison.
I sold the 4412's about 2 weeks ago, still remember the sound pretty well. When L166's are done I'll do a "virtual A/B" and report.
The reason that I kept the 4410's and sold the 4412's was the bass. On the 12 it felt a bit "flabby" , not as tight and controlled as the 4410.
