MMIH

Post by Mr. M-500t » Sat Oct 08, 2011 8:35 pm

Well,
I think I found a little Match Made In Heaven ! I picked up a CT-6 today for $50.00 with a known issue. I only had to spank it once to get it to play out of the right channel. Still playing fine. I'll fix it this winter when I'm bored. Anyways, I have it hooked up to the M-400t and Klipsch KG-1.2's and for a little system it's killer. The muddy bass of the CT-6 which I hate, really works out well with the KG-1.2's. I just may have to keep it around. I don't know where to put it though ! ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) I still think they suck OO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

You'll take one look inside that thing and close it right back up. You pack a tuner and a sonic holography preamp in a 1U package and things are mashed in there like nobodies business. All the controls are LSI (no pots or rotaries, except for the powered volume control (yes, they crammed a motor in there too)).
It should sound like it isn't there!

Yes, I know Bill. I've popped the top before on these things ! I know it's just a cold joint or something simple like that. Don't you think ?

Speaking of the CT-6, has anyone come up with a fix to replace the broken/missing power switch button? When looking at these online, it seems it's a common problem. The switch itself can be activated by pushing it through the hole where the button used to be. Of course the remote can also be used to power it on/off, but that hole where the button needs to be looks like crap. From what I understand, these buttons are no longer available. Has anyone found a suitable replacement for the button?
