Default Hello everyone...

Hello everyone,

I'm a new member that for many years got lots of pleasure out of building my "HiFi" collection and then one day I stopped....in pursuit of the "Holy Grail" I realised that I had already achieved it but had moved on and missed the moment

Anyway as way of introduction, I still enjoy listening but not building...the kit I use at the moment is:
naim CD5 CD player
Django pre-amp
Vacuum State dpa300Bs amps
Oris 200 horns with AER MD1 drive units
Onken bass cabinets

But more relevant for this forum I also have: KLPP1, K5881, Kat88 and KLS10s with crinkly gold tweeters!! So first job is to get those tweeters swapped out..

Brian.

Hello Brian and welcome.

You may already be aware but I have seen reports here and there of people who claim to have successfully re-inflated those tweeters. No personal experience.

Welcome, Brian.

See this thread. http://www.world-designs.co.uk/forum...ead.php?t=7505

Open up the link I posted in that thread to read in detail my reservations about re-inflating the gold tweeters. Personally I think you would be wasting your time and effort although I understand JohnG perseveres with regular inflations to his knackered tweeters.
