Does JBL get a bad rap?
Good luck with that Audiolabyrinth!

You know my position Dev, its Lamm or nothing! As far as bad matches go, there are plenty but the Levinsons and Proceed Harman uses for the shows are at the top of the horrible heap.david

Happy you liked the links Audiolabyrinth, no debts here to share. I have heard the 67000 several times just not in my own system and room. It's very difficult to accurately judge components in unfamiliar surroundings but given Timber's track recor... 
Does JBL get a bad rap?
Macrojack, what you're asking if properly answered in detail will fill many pages. Briefly, I'm familiar enough with 3 of the 4 brands to confidently tell you that bar the S9800 which I don't like, they don't even come close to a JBL K2!davidDiscl...

Audilabyrinth, First, 66000 & M9500 have a similar sound and sonic signature. Of course there are differences but sonically I don't see them make or break either speaker. Visually I like both but the DD66000 is a stunner, a real classic beauty...

True!david 
Does JBL get a bad rap?
Audiolabyrinth, imo the S9800 and S9900 weren't even as good as the previous generation K2's, specifically the M9500. There were some minor issues with the low frequencies but my main issue with them was the lack of tweeter integration. They alway... 
Need part for yba 600 power amp2004 model
Might be easier to have one made. YBA was sold a few years back and the current owners have no interest in supporting legacy products.david

Concerns purchasing Vintage System?
What you're looking at is a MUSIC system, don't let it go! Sure check to see that it wasn't in a damp basement for 20 years otherwise not much to worry about here. david

Mount up floorstanding speakers, should we?
Of course Czarivey.david 
Mount up floorstanding speakers, should we?
Czarivey, you must be a prepperšŸ˜Š. I know you're making fun but the cans are a quick and cheap solution to figure out the best height before deciding on a custom one. Or you can just peel the label and spray paint them black.david 
Mount up floorstanding speakers, should we?
Chris, bricks don't work well under speakers and depending on where you place them the sound goes from bad to worse. Lifting Tannoys 4" is about ideal. the best solution I found is cans of food. Skinny ones work better than fat ones. You got plent... 
Soundlab speakers with sub woofers?
It's not a question of technology of the subwoofer but the it's quality! There are very very few of them that have a place in a high end system irrespective of design tech. For me a digital crossover is the death of any system with high end aspira...
