If you like LOUD and clear music, I highly recommend looking into some Klipsch Chorus IIs. I've had a set for the past few years and they are very hard to beat, extremely loud, clear and the type of bass that kicks you in the chest!! :D :D :D You can run these with a 2 watt tube amp or the Sunfire 600x2, they're easy like that! There's a nice pair on eBay right now:

Those are some nice looking speakers. Im pretty sure I heard some when they first came out and remember how much I liked them. I only have one problem, if I bring one more pair of speakers in this house I might be sleeping out on the sidewalk... :lol: :lol:

Re: MRHP's cave dwelling area

I gave up on looking for a rack...and who needs one when you got empty ammo cans laying around everywhere :-" :-" \:D/

Still got the hood off the Sunfire tube pre from tube rolling. Im thinking move the amps back and move the speakers in a little....I dont know, whatever sounds best I guess is the way to go. Got the 20's all cleaned up and put together and added another 2400 to the collection \:D/

Re: MRHP's cave dwelling area

Well its been a while since I have updated. Finally found a nice audio rack that I like. Right now the Lightstar is setting on a Sunfire glass base in the floor. Here are a couple pics.

:lol: :lol: :lol: Had to double check and make sure I didnt put up pics of the wife... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Come to think of it I have noticed a little less feedback and hum thru the TT. Less microphonic tube trouble also.

Re: MRHP's cave dwelling area

Last night I had some fun playing around with the Turn Table. Bi-amped the Baby Blacks using one for tweeters and the other for woofers and used the gain on the BB's for volume. Pretty fun trying different tubes for woofers and tweeters and then making it gel with the phono preamp tubes of different selection. Here's a couple pics.

You're like the mad scientist Eric! :lol: How did it sound? What tube combination did you end up with? Oh and sorry I missed your call I was at a college basketball game with my daughter.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

The tweeter amp sounded best with either 5751 Sylvania triple blacks or very early MC1 Mullard 12ax7. I was also rolling power cables too and the tweeter amp liked the Douglas Bravo 15 silver based cable.

The woofer amp sounded best with either Mullard M10's or Siemens ECC83 and a Furutech 18P power cable.

The phono pre sounded best with 5751 Sylvania triple mica black plaes.

The turn table liked the Douglas Alpha 11 or Bravo 15. The Alpha seemed to add some weight to the music where the Bravo 15 brought out more detail with a lighter more delicate touch.
