  1. Orphan AR3a for sale

    Oops. Sorry. I'm in the Hudson Valley up near Kingston. I know you from last year when I was messing with a pair of EMI speakers. If you are interested in this AR I could meet you half way or something. I used to live in Suffern NY, are you near there?
  2. Orphan AR3a for sale

    So my AR3a project is never gonna happen because I don't want to pay the high prices for a second one to make a pair. So I'm letting the one I have go. The original woofer has been refoamed. The highly coveted mid range driver is fully functioning. The original tweeter is gone, but the one in it works, as do the pots on the back and the crossovers. The original binding posts are intact and are not stripped or anything. The cabinet is solid, but there is moisture separation on both sides on the top of the speaker. There is no grill with this speaker. Bottom line: this is a fully functioning, restorable AR3a. I hope someone out there can pick up where I left off. Come get it today and I'll throw in a pair of original pots from an AR2a speaker. $200 or best reasonable offer.
  3. AR3 sells for over $3000!

    These have been for sale near me for a month. No takers. https://albany.craigslist.org/ele/d/pair-ar-lst-speakers/6176438387.html
  4. Advent Maestro Review? Anyone?

    I'm wondering bassment142's Maestro's had bad woofer surrounds or maybe drivers not screwed in tight enough. Granted, Mine have been in a medium sized room (16 x 18) with lots of stuff in it, so maybe I just got lucky with a perfect room/speaker match. As for power, mine are run by a Marantz 2270. Not wimpy but no powerhouse either.
  5. AR TSW 610's?

    Anyone have any idea about these? Got a line on a pair, just not sure it's worth grabbing them. Both woofers and mids need foam, one tweeter shot, etc.....

    http://stores.ebay.com/looneytune2001/ This guy is named Rick Cobb. Tell him exactly what drivers you have and he will hook you up.
  7. Anyone here know anything about these? They deserve to be here as they have a very New England sound. Just got a pair and I'm trying to figure out the capacitor value for the tweeters. I can't read what's on the original caps.
  8. Allison One

    I think $200 for that pair is a great deal. I personally would not part them out, but that's just me. You WOULD make more $ parting them out though. Tweeters: probably $150 each. Mids about the same, woofers, I don't know, but should be above $100 each. Look at Ebay's sold history, if you know how.
  9. Allison One

    $200 is an extraordinary deal for a pair of Ones. Plus, your particular pair looks to be fantastic. Advice: if the tweeters don't work spray the leads with dioxit BEFORE you write them off as not working.
  10. Advent Maestro Review? Anyone?

    I made out very well with these maestro's. My comment is buried at the bottom of the post above yours: "Yeah. I've been playing them for about a week now. I unplugged a set of Allison Two's to give the Maestro's a try. The Allisons are great speakers and while the Maestro's won't beat them they come pretty darn close. A major feat considering the Allisons are worth like a few hundred bucks and the poor Maestro's can only bring like $50 to $100." Its now been just about a month since I hooked them up and I don't see them going anywhere soon. Silk smooth sound that fills the room with no effort. I'm actually going to list the Allison Two's for sale today. These Advents are really that good.

    So I just got around to the re-foam of these speakers. Think they are going to surprise me tomorrow when I hook them up. Looking forward to it.
  13. Allison AL-110/115 tweeter question

    The tweeter on the left in the bottom pic has magnetic shielding on it. Could be the only difference. The magnet might be the same size as the one on the right. Speaker companies were using shielding back then because the magnetic fields would wreak havoc on the video signal that ran though the big and heavy tube television sets back then when speakers were set close to the screen. Remember, this was the beginning of home theater.
  14. Allisons on TV!

    Was watching an episode of HBO's "Girls" last night. The one where Hanna, the show's lead character, goes to Patti Lupone's apt. to do an interview. In the living room background I saw one Allison tower sitting there. Either a One or a Two. I don't know who's apt. was used, but I can imagine Ms. Lupone being the owner of speakers like these.
  15. Allison One Gold....info wanted

    I agree. Many of us have been swept up by the Allison raves only to discover issues that are really tough to overcome. I've got a pair of Fours here that I refoamed and bought a replacement tweeter for. The tweeter cost well over $100. I've since learned that Allison put ferrofluid in the Fours tweeters. I think they are too delicate to be taken apart for a fluid replacement and if I try it and blow it there's no other replacement tweet anywhere on the horizon. Point is I now suspect that I'm not hearing these fours as they were meant to sound.
