  8. No one in the family will dance with me. 🙄 House is shakin a bit. regards Bruce
  9. Goodaye all Finally listening to my Sansui AU717, its been a saga. l got it cheap with out a volume control and tracked a NOS one in Europe. Got lost in the mail for nearly 6 months but did get here. Was being poisened by a worn out hip replacement and was not able to concentrate or think right so gave it to Trusscots to put the volume control in, get running and service it. Took them 3 months, they had to replace a few bits. l have new hip, hearing has come back and the AU717 sounds magnificent. l'll give it a few hours to settle in, but already the bass hits you and throws you into the other room. At some stage l will recap it but for the moment l want to enjoy it. Owes me less than $1k l think, but who cares. Got a Sansui AU555 going cheap if anybody is interested. regards Bruce
  10. Goodaye Trusscots in Croydon is closing down early next month. Bob is retiring and the shop closing. l always found them good for that repair l couldnt manage and a wealth of knowledge. Also had some very strange bits and pieces new and used sitting there, if you could find it. Been told everything has to go. where will l go to get that odd bit now? regards Bruce
  11. Goodaye all No old original drivers, new caps. Got about 20hrs on them now sounding better. Found a set of complete Bailys down the road. Do l sell these and get those??????? regards Bruce
  12. Goodaye all Got a pair of non working factory Kef Concerto's with the Idea of using them as Bailys in the future. Needed a driver and the mids had there terminals hanging off. (Thankyou to a SNA member for parts, donation to SNA made.) Fixed the terminals with nylon screws and some new tabs, capped the old crossover's and fired them up. Yuk, sounded awful nowhere near as good as my other Concerto's. Let them run late last night and most of the day so now have 15hrs on them. Wonderful now, sound nealy as good as my Kefkit set. These hadnt been used for years going by the dirt and proberly like me are bit slow to get moving. (3rd hip replacement) The new caps were a mixture of poly's and electro's done my way. Bit disapointed on how Kef insulated there terminals. So yes the 15hrs of burn in has made a difference for the better. Now all need to do is get onto the Baily cabinets and build fresh crossovers. regards Bruce
  13. Goodaye all Cant give a reasonable answer on why we tend to use plastic over metal apart from being conductive. regards Bruce
  14. Should have said l had the Bluestone slab sealed. regards Bruce
