    Ar 10pi speaker stands

    Would go well in a room with oriental themed furniture. Just what I should make for my 10pi's. Thanks for sharing your pics.

    dynaco_dan is back

    Vern, Glad to see you back. Missed seeing you around the forum. Haven't posted much lately myself, but usually stop by every day or so just to see what is going on. Looking forward to seeing you about again. James

    AR-1 Information

    Ran across these over in another forum. One is a scan of the AR-1 instruction sheet and the other is a scan of a hand drawn crossover network dated 1957 on AR letterhead paper. Thought some of our members in the know could tell if these have any value to be posted to the library. Took a look see and did not find them in there currently, or maybe I just did not know what to search for.

    Keeping Score:

    My wife was just standing over my shoulder and I told her you actually meant "Nude Pictures of Free Speakers". Wait, she just left. Please post pictures now..
  5. I use Howards and like it. But I never use steel wool. A Danish furniture dealer put me on to using bronze wool instead, which can be picked up at a local hardware store, such as Ace. Also can get your Howards there also.

    The 'quest' of greatness.....

    Gee Frank, Now I know why I can never find a pair of LST's out here in the west. Everyone ships them back east for you to buy. I may have to travel out your way someday if I ever want to hear some in person. Good luck on your never ending quest for the "Wall of LST's" (feel free to use the title). James

    Power to the people, or lets get crazy instead.

    Frank, I actually have a VERY UNDERSTANDING wife. Otherwise there is no way she would allow me to have the following toys: Receivers 22 Amplifiers 7 Pre Amps 5 Int Amp 2 Tuners 7 TT 5 Cassette deck 15 R2R 4 8Track 1 CDP 6 EQ 2 Reverb 1 Speakers 35 pair [AR's 14 pairs- 10pi(1), 3a(2), 2ax(5), 4x(5), 94s(1)] If I found a pair of LST's she would allow me to have them also. '53 Jag XK120DHC '67 Dodge Charger '74 Dodge Charger '01 Dodge Ram 2500 QC LB '05 Dodge Magnum R/T M1911-A1 I take all of the garage, multiple systems in every room. Must be love as we just passed 16 years married last week. As for your rules, of course I would strictly follow all of them, after all I was a very squared away Marine and know how to follow orders, oh Master of Listening, Director of The Play List, Great OZ, etc etc....

    Back on the Advent track

    Hey guys be careful out there. This wild weather is making things dangerous. Glad to hear you are both OK. Looking forward to the Advent library but your health is always more important. Take care one and all. James

    Power to the people, or lets get crazy instead.

    Listen here you AR ‘bass-slam’ nut-job I've just about has enough of......... Just kidding Frank . Always enjoy your view point. May not always agree but still enjoy the read. As of this time my AR's may be a little underpowered but that doesn't detract from my (or the wifes) listening pleasure. One pair of 3a's are currently doing service in my living room via a ST-70/Pas-3/FM-3/XA setup that I mostly play jazz from a local college station or jazz and classical via the TT. The other pair is in the master bedroom coming off a Yamaha CR 2020. Plenty of power there (not as much as your PL of course) but the wife and I still prefer low to moderate levels. She has sensitive to loud volume ears but still enjoys what she describes as warm sounding the music that we listen to. If I ever get a chance to get out to the east coast from the west I may have to co0me by to let you demo your LST's for me. Heck, I've never even seen a pair in person yet. Until then keep enjoying yourself and the music. James BTW I have no idea of what I am talking most of the time

    New-Edge-It Speaker Surrounds

    Not to go too far off topic, but is there a way to contact MSound off of ebay as I no longer have an account there and feel no desire to renew it. Need to pick up surrounds for 3 pairs of 2ax's and 1 pair of 10pi's.

    Stacked Ar-2ax and AR-4x

    Glad you like the sound, but if you have hooked them up in parallel and are running a 4 ohm load on an amp rated for 8 ohms, not good. Here is a good read on the subject: http://audiokarma.org/forums/showthread.php?t=60386

    Stacked Ar-2ax and AR-4x

    The Yamaha R-9 has A & B speaker outputs which makes it easy. I am running a Dynaco A10/A25 stack off my little Dynaco ST-120 amp so I did have to hook that up in parallel. Make sure your amp is rated down to 4 ohms be fore you do. Debating now whether to run my newest 2ax/4x stack through my Dyna 400 or the Fisher 800B. Sounds good with both but much warmer with the tubed 800B. Have fun.

    Dyna 400 - preamp??

    Vern, Thanks for the info. I didn't know if Dynaco had a particular pre-amp they had designed in conjunction with the 400. I know many manufacturers did. Currently I have: PAS-2x with a ST-70 PAS-3 with a ST-70 PAT-4 with a ST-120 Maybe will look for a PAT-5 for the 400 and keep it in the Dynaco family. Thanks again. Will talk to you later. James

    Dyna 400 - preamp??

    I will be picking up a Dyna 400 amp this weekend and was wanting to find out what the era/date appropriate preamp from Dynaco would be for this amplifier? How about the same for a tuner to keep the whole setup as era appropriate Dynaco? Thanks for any info. James
