    Re: BlueMcIntosh's Systems...Before and After.

    Yes, they were not thin at all. Not dripping but tubey. I use SS myself, but these tubes drove the 802s well.

    Listen for yourself though, as I am no tube amp expert.

    BIGGEST Surprise in my LIFE!!!!

    Since I can not move down the my main speakers I decide to try my Rogers LS3/5A in basement. Well...it's small monitor and I wasn't expect much on bigger room BUT as soon as I hooked up on MC275's ...My jaw just dropped to the floor...and I said WTF !!!! seriously....Wow....this is biggest surprise in my life. this little monitor sounds incredible....beautiful vocal ( they are well known for ) the stage is very wide and even the bottom end is amazing for the size of speakers....Wow...

    This speakers are classic and hard to come by in this mint condition. A lot of members in here wouldn't really care much about the this little old speakers but Please do me a favor if you get a chance to listen to them please do so... if not than make it happen !!! This little guy just blew me away.

    Re: BlueMcIntosh's Systems...Before and After.

    Those Rogers' are cute; I still don't see no turntable.
    {The black felt surrounding the tweeter is a good idea; I do that too with some tweeters of mine.}

    * "The Music", at 180 pounds each I knew that it'll come to that. ...You need some serious help and a good plan in order to move them down the stairs.
    -> Another great review: http://www.positive-feedback.com/Issue59/vienna.htm

    Re: BlueMcIntosh's Systems...Before and After.

    I added another great review of "The Music" in my above post, plus an older add (last summer) from Audiogon. ...But the sale never materialized as $12,888 was the target base price. Normally a pair of demos should be around $20,000 US, in excellent condition.

    The TT is no rush Paul because I know that you already have some fantastic hi-res digital music recordings:
    from FIM - UltraHD - 32-Bit Mastering! And with a CD/SACD player (MCD500) you also certainly have few SACDs.

    Re: BlueMcIntosh's Systems...Before and After.

    One of my friend contacted the seller and that was something wasn't right... Anyway if it's used and demo goes around $20 K yes. However the New retail price just went up to $30 K this year..sigh

    For me as long as I have my music on I am happy regardless of method.

    Re: BlueMcIntosh's Systems...Before and After.

    Now I have one more mission to go and It will be my final journey for audio life.

    1. Quad ESL57 or DeVore speakers.



    2. EL34 based int amp. Haven't decide the brand and depends on what speakers I'm getting but I will be happy with either one.





    3. Garrard 401 or 301

    Yes, Stereo Exchange from New York. And yes, at their own website the demos (The Music) are advertised at $20,000 US (MSRP: $30,000 US).

    Bob...I'm almost there to end of my journey and It has been planned. I'm not in rush in getting those system I mentioned above.

    Here are three system I always been dream of ...

    1. I always wanted to have a very detail and excellent bass speakers with sexy looking and I think my VA Music speakers is fit in nicely.

    2. BBC monitor sounds. I love the Britain monitor sounds, Box speakers with excellent vocal- PMC IB2i and Rogers LS3/5A

    3. Analogue system that can listen to whole day without fatigue. - Again the system I mentioned on previous post.

    If I can get all those 3 systems ..... I'm almost there now... I've been planning this while ago Bob

    I said TV; you don't have a regular TV (HDTV plasma, LCD LED) with cable, or satellite? ...Netflix, etc.

    ...In your bedroom, or a separate room (family, den, ...).

    Re: BlueMcIntosh's Systems...Before and After.

    I received the PCOCC solid copper from Jeff (a.k.a A/V solutions ) and we had a long conversation about the problem I'm having with my new audio room.

    He suggest me to get some bass traps and panels so that would be my next target.

    I just changed the original brass jumpers to his Copper jumpers and immediately found the difference. Now the sounds got much cleaner and more settle down. Absolutely love it.

    I sincerely thanks to Jeff and wish I have a guy like Jeff around my area...

    Also Now I add some Argent RoomLens and I guess that helps a little bit . If anybody interested in this product here is the link below.

    Re: BlueMcIntosh's Systems...Before and After.

    After spent about 70 hours playing time FINALLY it's coming to life.....It might be the Jeff's jumpers or break in issue...however now I can listen to them with smile on my face .

    I never had an issue with mid range but the bass was killing me now the low end got much tighter and the tweeter is coming alive. Will report back after another 100 hours.

    Thanks again Jeff.

    Peace !

    Another thing to experiment with is connecting the Pos leg of the speaker cable to let's say the bottom terminal and the Neg leg to the mid or top terminal or visa versa, many different configurations one can try.....it sounds crazy but often times there is a difference, not saying its better or worse just different sound wise. And of course its a YMMV thing and Free!!
