I've been talking to Paolo and he wanted pictures. Thought you'd like to see these, serial nos. 2702 & 2704.
I live in Rhode Island and went to an estate sale (my first) on a whim...expecting to find some large KLH speakers.
When I got there the KLHs were already gone but then I saw these. Only one had the Cizek decal. The surrounds were long
gone and so far I've refoamed them but have a problem with voice coil rub...probably from the cones drooping down
free for a long time. One has a tiny sweet spot to play it for now, the other is going to stay offline until I have enough
money to send these out to do a little repair/rebuild. Also, one of the turn dial mechanisms looks like it was replaced
with one whose shaft is completely round...without the indention the original knob got stripped and so I eventually gotta
figure out how to replace the knob or the mechanism or both...later.
The good: Cizeks are new to me but they definitely kick "tight" bass against my Henry Kloss ARs, Advents, KLH, etc.
And the highs are so realistic. These are keepers!
At the moment, my good Cizek sits atop one of my pair of Realistic Mach 1 speakers (who are awaiting the upgrade
1 from AudioKarma) and seems to be a great marriage! I listen to all types of music but my day job is trying to "listen"
with a straight judgement...music professor and Classical conductor. That said, I teach a new rock&roll course so it's
Thanks Paolo, et al.

New to restoring speakers. My day job is a professor of music and director of choral activities but am trying to remedy years of lo-fidelity due to lack of $$$...one East Coast speaker at a time!
