Wow..I must be getting old...I don't even remember doing this....

RayJr
Me and you. LOL. I think this was the time we never proceeded on the calibration due to light output on the new bulb.

newbies get "extreme vetting" to see if they can respect the torturous path of evolution of the current SOTA they expect to enjoy and take for granted without understanding the dues that have been paid by those struggling thru the trenches for decades . . .

the hardships i shudder at .

assembling Dyna kits with only a soldering freaskin' pencil
, but it 60 wpc!
and who could afford a DMM? were they even invented yet?

no lasers or gizmos to check coil temps, cone travel, no freeware modeling programs, and on and on

and who didn't spend time drooling thru the Lafayette HiFi catalog looking at the good ,better, best speakers and the prefab xo's and wonderfully flat response . . .

Those were the days . . .

Although still in business in the late 1970's, the Lafayette HiFi catalog was a little before my time...




But I devoured the Heathkit catalog, Audio, High Fidelity, and Stereo Review cover to cover. I have fond memories of helping my dad build a 1500A in our garage work shop about 1974.




Later on, we built a Dynaco 70 (the poor man's Macintosh) to drive my Quad ESL-57's, Eventually I replaced it with an Audio Research D-70, but the sound of the Dynamo 70 was amazing for the price.

My "Owned" Heathkit Speakers

Back in the day, my first "Owned Speakers" were Heathkit. They had "14in" speakers and the edges of the basket were squared off so that they would fit in a smaller areas. Eventually the cream colored surround failed and I had JBL re-cone the speakers while it was still done in their Northridge facility.
