KT120 replacement options in a Cronus Magnum II
Check out Viva Tubes. I've never been steered wrong by them.   
The Forgotten
Interesting discussion. For me there are some brands that played a strong role when I was beginning my journey. Some are now no longer in business.  NHT as mentioned  TDL Ariston Rogers loudspeakers  Royd Morrison Castle    
Volti Razz Loudspeakers
The RAZZ are what I’m saving my clams for. April 2023 baby !!  
Rogue Preamp RP-1
I really love mine, paired with a Rogue Atlas III. Quiet, good features, solidly built. I replaced the stock tubes with Psvane and was even more pleased. Reportedly the phono section is very sweet. My experiment this week will be to remove my outb... 
Favourite Guitarists
If he’s already been mentioned, my apologies. Phil Keaggy (was with Glass Harp, a legend around my hometown) SRV and Jimmy of course EVH of course I also have to say I saw Chris Stapleton over the summer and was very, very impressed. (not nece... 
If there was only ONE album/cd/release you can listen to, over and over.............
Tool - Fear Miles Davis - Sketches of Spain Steely Dan - Gaucho  Any of those three, only on Saturday nights, after I master distilling my own coconut liquor.   
Pure Class-A Amp under $2000 (USED)
30years ago I owned a Threshold 400A. For 30 years now I kick myself for letting it go. They come up now and again here and elsewhere, recapped and tested within your budget. Loved that amp.  
Klipsch La Scala replacement?
@jonwolfpell  I was also going to suggest OP look to Volti. I've been busy saving for my own pair of RAZZ. Corresponded with Greg R. of Volti several times. He is a super nice guy, IMO represents the best of this awesome hobby of ours.    
The fascination of vintage hi-fi: A Look Back
@whart  There’s not much information I’ve been able to dig up. It seems the drivers themselves were made by Jensen, for sure the woofer was. I’ve been able to locate a few industry catalogs. They mostly show projectors etc.. but do show the drive... 
The fascination of vintage hi-fi: A Look Back
Thank you for the nice comments my friends. I posted it on here in Virtual Systems. It's listed as doyle3433's horn system or something like that. I posted it Nov 3, 2021. A couple before shots and then finished shot of it in the house. it has a a... 
The fascination of vintage hi-fi: A Look Back
@whart  agreed.  I pulled a single International Projector Co. Horn and folded cab out of an old theater in my town. After some clean up, fresh wire and some sanding, in a word wow! Friends and family are simply blown away not by it's size, but ... 
New MOFI speaker (Andrew Jones)
I was all set to buy Volti Razz speakers in 2023. They really seem to be what I'm after. Sensitivity, dynamics, musical presentation and fun! Now these cam along at about half the price. Darn it all !!  I plan on attending the Florida HiFi show to... 
What is the forums opinion of SVS subs?
Hi all, just a thought for potential buyers. The SVS website has an outlet page where they have blemished units at a bit of a deal. I bought my micro 3000 with a blemish and I’m hard pressed to find the imperfection.. The cosmetic blemish doesn’t ... 
What is the forums opinion of SVS subs?
I have a micro 3000 and a PB2000, I enjoy them both. I have heard the REL is more musical, and I can’t confirm or deny that. But for me the SVS subs are just right for my needs. The adjustability via the app is awesome. Very versatile and lets one... 
Speaker upgrade
Hello all, I truly appreciate all the feedback regarding my post.  My absolute top budget is $6k, without selling my plasma and a vital organ.. I am intrigued by the Spatial, spent some of my evening reading up on them as well as the NSMT's. I wo...
