    vintage speakers

    A couple of reasons, one, I want to make them a sealed cabinet, and two, I want to make them narrower and taller.

    I have just rescued these from my shed, and brought them into the warm to check they are all ok before removing the drive units for my next 3 way active project. The problem is they are sounding to good, I now remember why I lusted after a pair for so long in the 70's, this pair I acquired in the mid 80's. Anyway the cabinets are very shoddy now, so I guess dismantling is the best idea. Listening to them in passive mode, I can only imagine that they are going to sound sublime, when active.
  3. Great news Eddie, did I miss what speakers you were going to use, or is that highly classified!!

    DAC Off Part 2: Qutest vs RME ADI-2 DAC

    Thanks for the reply Nick, I was asking because I know nothing of digital volume controls, but when building a passive pre, there were all sorts of arguments for, Stepped attenuators, LDR, Alps pots ect.

    DAC Off Part 2: Qutest vs RME ADI-2 DAC

    So if the digital volume control is implemented correctly, there is no degrading of SQ, it only degrades if not correctly implemented? Is that correct Nick?
  6. I have done that too, with great success, and dare I say I thought the SQ was slightly better

    I do not know where you live, so there might well be other options closer to you.

    I think there was an E90 pro version, that may well have been the one for cinema use.
