I think I fucked up all four ribbons on my Originals.
Tonight I decided to play with my new 760x, hooked it up direct from the CDP and turned the pots on the back of the amp down to
1/2 way....as per RobertR suggestion...thanks by the way that worked well. Anyway as I was playing with the pots I turned
them up a little at a time when I realized I was all the way there.... it was loud but it wasnt as loud as it should be.....and the meters
never hit higher than 200w. I turned everything off and started to inspect the amp and the Originals....everything looked fine and then I noticed
something......the ribbons were completely flat.....no crimps........How???
Then it dawned on me.
The day that I moved them down stairs I was alone, so I used a movers dolly. I was careful but that is the only thing I can think of
is that as I took them downstairs the small jolts from stair to stair must of pushed the magnets or ? and pulled the ribbon tight.
I have left a Pm with James..toymaker..but I am pretty sure I know what he is going to say.
As I sit here all I can think of is I'm the biggest idiot.....I knew the ribbons were fragile....It just didnt come to me
This is as close to actually crying real tears I've come to in the last 15 yrs......FUCK! FUCK! FUCK!
