Ah the sub. Bet a lot of people didn't know that the RCA input on the A2s runs as an output when the 1/8th-inch jack is being used. It's an old Yamaha YST-SW216. Gets me down to 20Hz nice and smooth. Forty bucks local pickup in Chicago. What a deal :) Oh and the bamboo is for...dampening.

 

 

For me, when using the A2 RCA input as output to my sub, it is noticeable more quiet than my sub RCA out to A2 input.

I don't have that issue...hmm. my sub does have its own volume control though. I think it works great!

The TR6 pictures are of my grandparents old cars, they were in some county club or whatever with those cars.
The air force shadow box is my great grandfather's, he was a navigator on a bomber over Normandy. Plane was shot down and he survived, was captured as a POW, ended up escaping and ended up with three purple hearts on the way for various things. That's the short story. I need to get my grandfather's US army pins in a box, he was a marksman in the Vietnam war.

Thanks for sharing that story. It was hard to tell what kind of wings were in the shadowbox.

 

You have a lot of great history there, its nice to see it being maintained!

Nice! That's very close to what I was looking to do as well. I bet it sounds awesome coming out of your setup! I've heard great things about those KEF ls50's

Which one do you prefer for the HD800? The Conductor or V200?

post #16965 of 18916

got it this evening, i'll post some impressions in a few days

 

different beasts, both very pleasant

 

first thing i noted is how much warming the conductor up affects its performance, the violectric too but it needs like 10 min and it's ready to go, while the conductor really need a good half hour to warm up evenly

 

i guess it's because of the difference in size and in the violectric only the power stage is discrete while the conductor has no opamp or ic at all
