Klipsch K Horns (the new AK6)
@mijostyn,That is exactly what I have done a few years back!!! Tri amped and using the Xilica 4080 DSP to control everything, best sound I have ever heard from my Khorns!!! BTW they are also upgraded with 2" wooden tractrix flared horns and 2" BMS... 
Horn Speaker Recommendations
I am a big fan of big horns, my Klipsch Khorns are modded with 2" drivers and 2" throated wooden tractrix flared horns. I would never change these except to try the Klipsch Jubilee's!!! Have a look on the Klipsch forum and read about the Jub's....

Brass Pulley for My TT

Update:So I had the machine shop make another pulley from SS and wouldn't ya know it , it is also leaving a residue. So now it is either the belt itself or something the shop used on the material I guess???

Upgrade for users of 1/2" mylar belt
Update for any concerned, I used a machine shop to have two pulley's made. One from brass and one from ss, both seem to work good but, the brass one is leaving a residue like dust on the platter which i fear may mess up the finish so I am trying t...

Well I had the machine shop make me a brass pulley for the new motor setup I bought, it works great except the new pulley is leaving a brass residue on the belt and platter. Probably gonna have him make me another pulley from SS.

brf,I am hoping you are right, that's what I am thinking also. That the shop didn't polish it enough I guess time will tell.
