Re: Crossover components rolling ?

I think Ill have a shot with the K73-16s and Gregs recs first. The prices are quite similar, especially if you choose the 63v Russian ones (Ive just seen the 3.3uF ones for 1 dollar 20 cents each!...

Re: Crossover components rolling ?

Interesting, Greg.
Are they the 400v or the 630v ones ?
You already said you rated Solens for crossovers. many say they are very bright in amps etc. but not many talk about using them for Xovers....

Re: Crossover components rolling ?

Hi Stuart,
My valve phono pre is littered with several Russian FT-3 Teflons but unfortunately they get no higher value than O.47uF @200v and given their physical size the best I could do in my...

Re: Crossover components rolling ?

Thanks Phil and Greg,
I suppose we all would like a straight fit these answer but as usual that is not the case. I guess the intelligent thing would be to go for a mid price cap from a reputable...

Re: Crossover components rolling ?

Re: recapping speakers

Falcon do replacement caps for the Alcap red and blacks. When I recapped my HB2s I went for them instead of buying some films because I wanted to change things as little as possible.

Re: what are you listening to now

I have that Clapton LP, bought in Spain. Excellent, by far the best Clapton recording I know. All the rest sound opaque and dull. I assumed it was a live at Budokan, under another sleeve.

Interest check. Drivers and Xovers for WD25TEx

Ok. I live in the Canaries so freight for my WD25TExs would presumably be prohibitive back to the UK. Would anyone be interested in the drivers and external crossovers ? All lovingly cared for. the...

Re: Chinese Stepped Attenuators

I have fitted them to my Sugden A21SE and my Creek OBH21SE phones amp, the former 50k Log and the latter a 20K one. They knock the Alps Blues into touch: resolution is the word I think, a veil of...

2. I...

Re: New WD25Tex build

Hi,
Nice job. I also have Wd25TExs in a sandwich of particular board and mdf skin which I had sprayed by a pro.
