  1. Hey I'm planning for the all class A l590ax, It does look nice though :).
  2. Progress update: Baffles machined, now onto steel work. Primer grey even nearly looks good..
  3. Plenty of interest, but amps are still available at this stage :).
  4. I would agree if you like big bass, for my listening recently which is more eagles/John Mayer type stuff I've found it more than adequate without sub. ACDC/Sabbath etc It would be handy to have one, but these things to damn good bass as moderate levels. Also depends on speakers though, as the Jamo's are only good down to about 50hz, If I had decent speakers It might be a different situation. (. Will have soon but they're active bass so not really fair comparison)
  5. High level should work.. I assume you had their 3 cable connector?
  6. https://www.jaycar.com.au/rca-plug-to-2-x-rca-socket/p/PA3560 you can use them for anything really, adding sub doesn't really affect the pre as the draw is so low.. second amp etc is a bit more involved I think. If you are using a reliable though their best connection is speaker level from the amp, but can't be used with most class D gear... What power amp do you have? edit: assuming you mean output of course, because you can't connect a sub to an input..
  7. Yes Please Long as the vinyl is in near perfect condition
  8. If you can get a Supratek with the new 6SN7 circuit you'll love it. You can always email Mick and see what he can offer, sometimes he has deals with older cabinets etc. Sub is just a second set of outputs Ideally, but you can always buy RCA T pieces to run 2 off 1.
  9. Solid state class A is a good option for more output and where I'll be moving to when the 300B's are gone (for me its about the convenience though and box count etc), but you do lose something that a good SET amplifier brings about. If you don't need huge output I'd be looking into Parallel 300B's or something like the Line Magnetic 845S if you want more tube power (these aren't cheap though). Consonance also do a nice 28W 845 Design, but they don't pop up second hand often. Osborn Speakers sells these. I was going to try them against the 300B's I own, but missed out when a pair sold cheap last year so never got too. I doubt they'd have been better, just louder. I do agree though if you want brilliant guitars EL34s are a good option. I had an Audile EL34 design about 30 watts before the 300B amps and guitars were just as good, but the 300B's are better at everything else, and just as good on guitars, just 50% less output
  10. Thats definitely the inside of these Red, did you own them previously? They have a 6CG7 Driver, EL34 & 2x 300bs. (The 6CG7 was created which simply put the 6SN7 elements into a 9 pin minature tube. The main difference is that the plates of the two sections are slightly closer together because of the narrow confines of miniature tube <---Bit of info on the tube) I got them from a friend who personally knew Bill so they have a certain amount of sentiment, however I can't justify just storing them for 10+ years, and the system simply isn't getting the use it should, as its a bit too complicated with Bub in hand. Heres a closeup of the main mark on the timber, there are 1 or 2 other little marks but I can't manage to get a clear photo of them. Any further questions feel free to PM or call out to @Red MacKay haha. He seems to know more about them than me, I just use them
  11. Just at work, will try to get into them after work and find the camera for some decent pics. Red is pretty bang on with that description. Though they've had their current configuration since I've owned them. Didn't expect so much interest straight away or I'd have put more effort into the pics for you all haha
  12. Further information: Up for sale is a brilliant pair of Mono blocks and my favourite amps I've owned. Maybe not the huge output of some of the Big Krell & Magnus gear that's come through my room, but just sublime midrange, vocals and overall beautiful sound. However hifi needs to take a backseat to family for a while and I need something simple and at least half reasonable sounding (Luxman L590AX). I had planned to just put them into storage until Bub is bigger but it seems a waste, someone should get to enjoy them. They are parallel single ended, couldn't give you much in the way of specs, but most folk tell me they should put out 14-18watts or so. They go more than loud enough to drive my 89dB Jamo's to good levels on any content, and haven't let me down. Canadian made Hammond transformers and point to point wiring inside, very well made and easily repairable. They have power leads integrated, but I'm sure this could be easily changed if you want to use fancy power cables. They also have a separate switch for the output transformers so you can let them warm up correctly before firing them up, and have soft start on the switches. Few tiny marks on the timber but nothing serious. Haven't got original packing, but I'm sure I can pack safely enough for freight if necessary, but would rather a local sale (Happy to deliver around SE QLD areas Brisbane/Sunny Coast etc) Lastly, I want to mention, they do have a very quiet hum through the speakers when powered up, this is normal for this type of amplifier. It's only audible within a meter or 2 of the speakers, but just part of SET Amplifiers in general. I have used them on 96Db efficient speakers too, and not been upset with the result. PS_ Hifi rack will be getting sold now too, as I'm attempting to reduce box count to a point a Normal TV unit will work. Photos: Pics aren't brilliant, but if anyone is interested in them, more than happy to get the big camera going for some close-ups, just haven't unpacked it yet since moving last.
