Ah thanks, I figured out my confusion: I thought the Youtube title referred to a Stanley Clarke/Bela Fleck collaboration. They *have* collaborated, but that's not what's playing in that video.The first cut is "Wild Dog" from the Album "The Clarke/Duke Project." It brings back great memories.
You win the "Who's got the most hardware" awardWell I thought I would chime in here on stereo. Got quite a concert. Vincent sp-332 power amp, Vincent CD-S1.1 disc player, Cambridge Audio Pre amp, 2 HP-201 Pangea tube amps, Woo audio tube amp, Rega -1 with British flag, Sansui 717 tuner, (vintage best tuner ever built in my opinion in its time ) Onkyo cassette player, Bellari tube pre amp for turntable, Cambridge audio disc player, beringer sonic exciter (converted to stereo) Beringer ultramizer (converted to strereo ) (2)Beringer ultragraph pro (converted to stereo) Technics sl-2000 turntable vintage, Onkyo cassette player, Record cleaner, Pioneer SR-303 reverb amp (vintage ) Pioneer graphic sg-9500 EQ, (vintage) Yamaha intergraded amp, (2) heat cooling fans. All Pangea connects and power cords, (2) Furman protection components, (4) Cerwin Vega XLS-215, Pair Martin Logan 10s, (2) pair Martin Logan 12s, PSB wall speakers, Pair Cambridge Audio speakers, pair Fluance biploers small, pair Fluance bipolers large, (2) Cambridge subs, Bose series 7 speakers, All connected. One side setup for really blasting, Other side stack for calm relaxing listing. Over 100 pre amp tubes back to 1948 for the tube amps. Also a power cord and connection cord MESS ! I am very anal about my tunes, When I hear someting that is not right it is a God awful nightmare trying to find it ! HA !! All connected also to my computer to stream, Cambridge audio DAC, from computer, A couple of Dragonflys. All in my listening room.. That is a enough typing !!
one of the guys on the Stereo Integrity Facebook page ordered a new SQL 15 and put it in his lascala and said it blew away the standard Klipsch driver and it played an octave lower and had so much more additional output that he was going to have to put an extra brace internally as the cabinet was vibrating too bad because of all of the outputView attachment 461501
I am building a set of La Scala clones, a very efficient design from the 60 from Paul Klipsch from back when there were only low wattage tube amps available. This is just the dry fit after cutting the plywood. The components and crossovers are a bit more up-to-date then the originals. Has a 15" woofer in the folded horn underneath, a 2" compression driver for the tractix horn squawker, and a similar compression horn tweeter. Will also by building in Orchard Audio monobloc amps into the horn cabinet, making them optionally powered speakers, or I can use an external amp
These Stereo Integrity woofers are sure to pump out the bass, enough to make your pant legs flap. If that's important, then fine, some music really benefits from that, like metal. And then double bass bins, no wonder he chose to reinforce the sides.

Sounds like the signal coming from the siren may be too high for the PA system. Question: does the hiss start the moment the siren cable gets plugged in, without the siren signal? That may be helped with shunting the cable using a 1 K resistor (standard impedance for some audio systems). The noise would reduce because the 1 K shunts higher values.Speaking of audio. We have an old 12V Federal police car siren that we use for a heads up warning if a rocket is coming in ballistic or drifting towards people. The problem is that when it is plugged into our PA system it produces a constant hiss over the PA speakers. Would a noise filter of some kind solve that problem? What filter would be recommended? The PA is a 12V system with 1/4" jacks for sound input.
Thanks for any advice.
That should explain it, the levels are way too high for what the PA is expecting as an input. Keep the volume knob turned way down on the siren, though.The audio out is just 2 wires that would normally be hooked up to a speaker.
Who puts this hardware statement on here? Oh and by the way I have more but this is the power hookup.. One thing I do not know if you all out there are into tubes but I can tell ya it is great to tube roll and hear how the tubes modify the sound,, it is neat to tube roll.You win the "Who's got the most hardware" award
My Schiit arrived today. FedEx was supposed to deliver it Thursday, adult signature required. While I was running an inventory, I received a text from FedEx that they moved the delivery date to...TODAY!
I got home JUST before the FedEx driver pulled up with my new turntable! Schiit Sol with the Audio-Technica cartridge.
Navison amps from Vietnam. PRETTYWho puts this hardware statement on here? Oh and by the way I have more but this is the power hookup..

Back in the early 70s, I got to sit in a stereo egg chair at a hifi shop in downtown Bellaire, Texas. I clearly remember listening to the Allman Brothers singing "Midnight Rider." It was way cool!time to bump the thread, or we've lost interest very early
I've always wanted to try out a stereo egg chair. They say most of the sound stays inside and it provides near-field listening which is usually great sounding. if you've never tried it you should sit in a chair and put the speakers so that they are just a arms length away at your fingertips so they should be about a foot or so in front of your chair and this eliminates all room interaction and provide a really great soundstage.
