  1. Further information: I bought these 2 pairs from “Statman” in 2015. They were partially assembled/disassembled and stored in a dusty shed as he had moved on to newer ESLs. They were manufactured sometime 2006 to 2009 I deduce from the available literature. I rebuilt both and continued on from what he had successfully attempted with the additional 15" woofer and triamping. The wood frame pair is run 3 way via a minidsp 4x10 and is used as my primary speakers. The chrome frame pair has a minidsp 2x4. Both Crossovers can be reinstalled, one is biampable. I havent used them much. Numerous sp
  2. I have the same problem with a 2x300va transformer ESP P110 amp. The transformers are old Aussie made eith a diyaudio softstart. If it is DC on the AC the noise should vary through the day as mine seem to do. I am waiting on a board by Peranders on diyaudio. Mine is worse in the evenings. Have you looked at rubber mounting? https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/group-buys/317094-buy-dct03-dc-trap-filter-toroidal-transformers-26.html Regards Kffern

  4. I'll take it if available. If anyone interested in the leds let me know. Kffern
  5. Further information: This is an empty chassis with transformer and rectifiers only. The transformer is pretty big. I haven't pulled it out but it looks like it has 2 x 600 to 800 VA toroids on top of the other. it appears to be potted but I may be wrong. It has 2 x 40V, 2 x 66V and 1 x 10V taps. Rectified voltage is 63V DC (Vincent used 63V caps). The 66 and 10V taps were for the valve input stage. I will include the 4 missing speaker posts. Each heat sink is 170 x 400 x 49mm. It weighs 24.6kg as is. I have the original double box carton. It was a Vincent SP-331MK.
  6. Thanks McC, Corian is pretty easy to work with. A table router and a handheld is necessary. You can cut with a jigsaw and I have found the right blade that worked really well - fine woodworking blade. The shavings break down to dust so you need to clean up regularly. It sands very easily. A bit too easily sometimes! Sound wise it walks all over wood. I have heard a Slate Lenco (SimonC) many years ago which was very good too. I have 2 large heavy wood plinths. Simon gave me a 19mm sheet of slate which I haven't used as yet. I have 2 layers of Corian left plus some smaller

  8. I thought I would share my new project. It uses a top plate and bearing made by Sien of SPH audio in Malaysia. Plinth is 5 layers of white Corian , feet are 3 layesr plus the spikes. Cost of Corian $20. After and before pictures below. I am very disappointed with the visible seams. I did small test jobs and they came out really well. Anyway, turn the lights down and sip a whisky and it doesn't bother me for a while. The feet are 3 layers glued with the same gorilla glue (clear) glue and cyanacrylate. Used both on the feet and both were close to perfect. I couldn't
  9. That looks more like a 1SC. I have one and quite like it. https://www.stereophile.com/standloudspeakers/386/index.html GLWTS, Kffern
  10. Further information: The motor and bearing run very smooth and quiet and the idler wheel is in good condition. It has the better steel version rather than the plastic wheel. The arm is non repairable with missing weight. I have a black original head shell. No platter mat included. Note that the B52 has the light weight platter, not the heavy one on the L75. The plinth has the spring base. I bought this a while ago with the intention of restoring and fitting a new arm but that is not going to happen.
  11. That's interesting. The project motor is 300 rpm and the original Thorens is 275 rpm at 50 hz. Can you tell me what the diameter of the pulley is or where you got it from? Wish you were closer and I was quicker. Regards Kffern
