Thanks.
Yeah, found the LED lights from a seller on the bay. Not a bad price either. Can hook up to 8 strips to one adapter too.

Re: Edriz's "Vintage Junk"

Wow that’s nice. Looking at the before picture of the Lascalas I can see you had a major job on your hands (they had a rough life) I’m glad you could bring them back to life. I always liked Lascalas but they always seemed extremely loud (maybe because most people I know that have them like their music that way) :)

Nice rig, Edriz. It looks as if you enjoy many an hour listening.
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Re-Veneer those LaScala's and bring them back to their full glory! Those are some awesome speakers- nice!

Re: Edriz's "Vintage Junk"

Thanks for all the nice words fellers. I sure do appreciate it. Yeah, I listen to alot of music everyday. One of the last real passions in life.

My lascalas were originally Birch Black. I have considered re-veneering them but I'm no woodworker and dont have the patience. They sound great too even at lower listening levels but I have done some modifying. The entire upper end is Crites, with the mid drivers now using Atlas drivers, Crites CT-125 tweets and Crites A/4500 crossovers. They really sing. Also added a Dayton Sub kit with a 500 watt plate amp. Helps alot with freqs below 40hz.
