An old Forte' model 3 made new
Thank you for your input. A bit of audio history there.  Gee, those T50's would be an excellent pair. Please remember me if you would ever sell them.... Fat chance, right? 
An old Forte' model 3 made new
 They really were a product worth owning. In fact, I did own a set of mono bloks at one time (before I knew squat about electronics), and sold them because there was a very small hum in each channel. Maybe they were the model 7? Too long ago to re... 
An old Forte' model 3 made new
One more thing. In the past, I did own a Threshold T50. Do you have an idea of what differences might be between that and the Forte' 1A? I know that the Forte' line was more affordable, but it just makes wonder. And yes, Why Did I Sell that T50 fo... 
An old Forte' model 3 made new
George, Yes, I remember that the 1A was a sort of revision of the model 3. Where the model 3 had 76 volts on each rail, the 1A only used 36 IIRC. The difference, and improvement with the 1A, is that it is class A, BUT also that the secondary power... 
Need help in trying to trace cause of distortion
One time that I will never forget was about an unidentified noise in some music but not all. It turned out to be a nearby lampshade emitting a sympathetic vibration from some of the music. Couldn't have guessed that one. My ears spoke to me that day. 
Need help in trying to trace cause of distortion
My experience with this sort of distortion was many years ago using a set of Synthesis 310 speakers (Conrad Johnson). In my case, it was just one driver. In short I replaced the driver, but didn't like the fact that it wasn't anymore than a driver... 
Stuck at home? Make a kit!!
 Been building various equipment since I was in high school. The thing to be careful of is the idea that what you built is some of the best out there. "Hey everybody, look at what I did". True enough, I see those who are incredibly talented, and t... 
Atlantic City casinos closing...
When reading this thread, I was initially unaware of the starting date, way back in 2014. Maybe some things never change. I would like to offer my observation as to who we are financially, and where we end up. In short, I am a bit above the level ... 
HAVE ALL SALES STOPPED ON AUDIOGON ???
As to the right pricing strategy, it has worked in the past for me to Raise my price. Otherwise, the product might be considered lousy. 
You could work for any manufacturer, past or present...
I would be sitting next to 4crowme at Western Electric. They were at the cutting edge of everything--speaker design, acoustics, amplification, radio, electric parts and tubes, you name it.   And don't forget, um,   phones. 
You could work for any manufacturer, past or present...
It would have to be somewhere in the Western Electric days or even Bell Labs. Telephony had a strong interest from me, and to witness the development early on would be priceless. No doubt, there were other interests as well, given that radio was c... 
Selling on Audiogon
 There are levels of acceptability (or not) for sales. 1) Tell your friends and neighbors. (you will lose a few friends, but you'll still be stuck with your neighbors).2) Sell locally on Craig's list. Then meet with the dude that shows up in an ol... 
If I have good local shops available, should I restrict my purchasing?
Well, some of the posts speak for themselves. All the more reason to dump my remaining overstock, and return to keeping my products for my own use. Go get 'em Sony/Best Buy and the rest. 
If I have good local shops available, should I restrict my purchasing?
 I have backed off from selling the products that I hand craft due to expenses incurred for the option of 'if you don't love it, send it back.' This rarely happens, but since I don't make a profit on my hobby status, it turns out that I eat most o... 
How many of us are truly satisfied with their systems?
 Horns are definitely a new world experience of sound. I miss them at times, yet know that the shortcomings can be off putting as well. Funny though, when you come from horns back to a regular speaker it is in some ways disappointing.
