Any of yall know how to remove a real tight rusted screw on speaker? I have tried spraying some penetrating oil but it doesn't work.

I sold my HPM-60 early. But I came across Pioneer HPM-900 last weekend

Pioneer HPM-900

 

Here is my current stereo setup, my surprising good Design Acoustics PS-10 speakers on the top of HPM-900.

I might try to pick these up this weekend. They are at an auction:

anyone know much about the marantz PM 325 amp.  How good would you say it is with its headphone output?

These was my set up when we were still living is Sacramento.  Now that were living in San Diego and we don't have enough space for dedicated listening area I have decided to trade the ESS Amt 1d speakers for Onkyo this(tuner not in pics). BTW I got the speakers for $50 bucks and I refinished the cabs.

Anybody got any experience with Norman Labs or Snell?

im either gonna pick up  a pair of Norman labs model 82 or Snell JII.

 

just trying to get some opinions on either.

they aren't in the same place so i can't A/B them directly and figure they both sound very good and similarly priceSUBMIT

I loved the Snell JII. I'm 90% sure that was the model. I was house sitting for a older couple and he had a Marantz 2230B running to the the Snells. I know they were from the middle 70's and were maybe a little over 24" tall. It's been a while since I've been out there. That receiver/speaker combo is what started the whole vintage gear chase for me.

excellent.

these are about 2 feet tall, they just a two way with i think a 10" woofer.  and they have a stand which for some reason i think they came with stands back then.  not sure htese are that old though.  i will find out tomorrow.  what makes them more tempting now is that i plan on running them off a 2245.  but in OK its hard to pass up a good working pair of Norman Labs.  we'll see.  probably just go with whichever will give me the lowest price lol

Well, if you pass on the snells, please let me know! The ones I was referring to were indeed two-way and had stands. I'll look and see if I have a picture of them.
