  1. The 101 and 505 's l have done cost about $100 to $130 to recap including putting new transistors on the tone board. As for the power amp side just what transitors are required and original ones used. They cost a bit more. l also do some suggested mods. Worth every cent.? regards Bruce

  6. Its very addictive. l Started with AU101's got another two, all capped and modded. One 101 sits in the family room and sounds magic. Then l moved onto a AU505, then another and another. 2 are capped and modded the third will probely get done sooner rather than later. To keep the piece l let one 101 go and will let another depart as well. NO l'm not addicted l could give it anytime.........eh maybe. If your in Melbourne your welcome to listen. regards Bruce

    Shared room help

    Goodaye all Using some non ported Linear Design K2400 speakers (have 2 12" in each cab). On a Sansui AU505 amp and Sony STR DH540 surround sound for TV and video. Cant do a thing on the floor as a wheel chair needs to get around. regards Bruce
  9. Goodaye all l have a shared family room which l want to l want to treat to improve detail. Bass is ok, so l doubt l need base traps. Mid and highs are very bright, and sometimes seem out of phase, so l suspect l am getting reflections. Speakers are in close to wall and l cant move them. Lounge/ listening position is against a wall. but is in a good equalateral triangle 3m. Cant do anything on the sides, very large window (with curtins) and kitchen area. Its L shaped. So all l can see available for treatment is the back wall, roof and behind the speakers. l have read lots of information on room setups but they don't seem to take real world situations very well. l was thinking Polymax panels for reflections on the roof and back wall to reduce the standing wave. regards Bruce

    Reverb, natural vs DSP

    Sitting behind me at my desk is a Marantz 2245 and Sansui AU505 connected to Marantz DS920 speakers. My choice is which amp. Steaming out of the PC is no DSP l feel the amps add there sound and depending on how l feel to which is used. l do use DSP for the Home theatre setup. regards Bruce
