Re: Did you say you liked horns?

MR HP, I am glad you broke down and got one of the Baby Black Beauties. It is one of my favorite amps. I have to laugh I have #001 driving a pair of Khorns and #002 driving a pair of Altec A4's. I don't think Bob in his wildest dreams would have ever dreamed those amps would end up on speakers like those. Hands down the the Baby Black Beauty sounds better on the Klipsch Heritage series. My 300b amps make the bass sound muddy, put a Baby Black Beauty on and "Bam instant heart attack" .

I think I'll dust off my Carver fest amps and send them to Tom to have him convert them back to stereo and have him give them a once over since I think the configs changed on them slightly.

Re: Did you say you liked horns?

Ok, first of all you know how I am about serial numbers.....

I was a little jealous of all the horns and liquid caps etc, and now you tell me you got #1 and #2 Baby Blacks!! Thats the way to kick ass right there! \:D/ \:D/

I have to agree with you about sending anything to the Toms at Vintage hifi. They tuned up my 300x2 and it sounds Soooo much better. I sent them a Douglas Connection Rhodium IEC plug, they installed it, put in a new power supply and upgraded a few caps. That thing sings like a bird now.

Back to the Baby Blacks. At 20wpc Im amazed with how well the drive my DQ20's. I have a Lightstar, 300x2, and BB stacked together so I can roll all three of those amps in a matter of minutes. The little BB runs right with the big amps even with the bass extention and has a warmer sound.

Re: Did you say you liked horns?

The little BB is a amazing amp. The imaging is great!!! I was surprised how well they handled my JBL's. Don't worry Eric, if Tinpan keeps this up his wife will put him out and the two of you can share my sofa and enjoy my system!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:
