Do old Acoustats compete with new 'stats or dynamics
Thank you for your input!Tweak1, I share your thoughts about Maggies; I appreciate what they can do, and while I have listened to the newer 1.7i, it still does not tick enough of the audio boxes to keep me listening for hours. I have yet to hear t... 
Amp for Joseph RM-25si ?
soix, I am intrigued by your comments on Don Sach’s tube gear and will be checking it out. FWIW, the vintage HK tube gear was really ahead of it’s time and is worth following up on, as well, and thank you for mentioning it. 
Amp for Joseph RM-25si ?
Thank you rlb61 and soix for your responses to my post. Great cable, IC’s and attention to speaker setup can unleash the potential lying dormant in a system. I will be enjoying these changes for a while. 
Amp for Joseph RM-25si ?
Thank you to all who posted a response to my question(s). I have tried the AP Oval 12 and found it to be a well-engineered, cost effective and great performing speaker cable. Between cable changes and room placement/toe-in the Joseph's are soundin...

Dahlquist DQ-20 Fan club Rant
I have read this thread with great interest. Are there any preferences for IC and speaker cable for the DQ-20's? Have SS and a tube amp to drive them. Any updates on the ScanSpeak tweeter replacements currently available?

Review: Quicksilver 8417 Tube amp
Chiming in on an almost 13-year-old thread, however, has anyone continued to have good results running the 8417 amp with different bias pots, and 6550 tubes? Sounds like an answer to a problem, if it doesn't stress the input stage of the amp too m... 
Good impedance match for Precision Fidelity C-7AR
Follow-Up:After checking, there was one large high voltage capacitor which was leaking a small amount, and, after replacing and breaking in the replacement for a few hours, the PF is back in fine operation once again. Thank you to everyone who con... 
Good impedance match for Precision Fidelity C-7AR
Almarg,Thank you very much for your excellent reply, and especially for taking the time to do the measurements. I will definitely try cleaning the pots before I consider replacing them. The Grado Sig 8MX can also be replaced with a lower output ca... 
Good impedance match for Precision Fidelity C-7AR
Ghosthouse,Thanks for replying. I will try using them on the inputs in varying places. I appreciate the suggestion about Harrison Labs attenuators, and I may try those, also. It may be that the gain needs to be lowered in the tube stage before the... 
Good impedance match for Precision Fidelity C-7AR
Viridian/Georgelofi,I have the Rothwell attenuators, and while they do provide more rotation on the volume control, they also take away some of the high and low frequencies. It does act more like a gain problem, but the VC may also be a culprit. T...
