Done deal! I called the seller and chatted for about twenty minutes. I'll go get them next weekend and take lots of pictures.

Thanks! I ended up paying $600. From the minor bit of research I did last night, I think I did okay.

The moody mobile is back on the road again. This time to Matts house lol. A 1280 restored by Terry Dewick is too hard to pass up.

Ha! Good on you, Moody. I bet that thing sounds awesome.

And Tim congrats to you too buddy! You are becoming the vintage speaker king!

Well speaking of speakers, I need it to go with a set I just scored off ebay(provided they arrive safely). I've always wanted a pair of 104.2, but I need up with their much acclaimed totl big brothers(hint).

I had my hopes set on another g901, but the trip to Florida the seller was taking turned out to be a move and I wasn't driving that far. These speakers need about 200wpc to shine, but I don't want to separate my Mac from my cornnies.

+1 to moody! I'd love to compare my 1250 to a 1280. I bet it will sound wonderful.


Thanks Rob. I'm looking forward to bringing them home. I think I'm going to have to finish a new room in the basement to house all my toys. Speaker king? Perhaps...haha

I was wondering what happened to the G901. Was patiently waiting for pics.

 

Looking forward to impressions on the sx1280 and wotts mac speakers!

I take it back, Moody does not drive a batmobile...he's drives a Delorean just like on back to the future. :eek: He's pulls up to my place, and his flux capacitor was glowing like a good set of tubes on my lyr. :wink_face: Smoke rolled off the vehicle when he exited through the sun roof. Black sun glasses, long trench coat...I though it was Neo from the Matrix. 

 

It was a short visit but I got to put Moody on the BHC with the 650's and I think it's fair to say that he was impressed. 

 

Enjoy the 1280 my friend. I know it's in good hands. :beerchug:

Just crossed the state line. The visit was short, but just long enough for me to be impressed by the crack/hd650 combo. That pairing sounds as good as some of the higher end tube amps I've listened to with the hd650. The crack is a stupid good value for the price.
post #11610 of 16838

^^ This. And that was a stock crack with NO speedball or upgrades. Just one aftermarket tube. Dang, it's really impressive. Next time I'll stop by and listen to the 500c and bring my 650/crack. :biggrin:
