I’ve amassed my vintage system, including a couple contemporary components, over the past 5 years. It’s been a labor of love in that I’ve scoured the internet for estate sales, CL listings, eBay, and garage sales to find these wonderful components. I’m fortunate to have found them when I did because the current price for these components are now easily two to three times more costly than what I purchased them for. I grew up with these components because my Uncle was an enthusiast and we listened to music through his hifi system. It was great fun! There’s a bit of nostalgia in the designs and the build quality that today’s components lack IMHO. Thank you for letting me share and thanks to Audiogon!
@puffball08 I have yet to explore the crossover updates, but it is weighing heavily on my mind to do so. I've found some great info on Audiokarma and J B Lansing Heritage sites. The crossover upgrades typically come in a kit, or as a plug-n-play with little soldering. It just depends on your skill level and time to put toward it.
To @puffball08 : Did you do the cross over upgrade yourself, or did you use a repair shop? I am interested in upgrading the corssovers for my speakers, but it looks like a bigger job than I should tackle.
Very nice system, beautiful room. Agree with @taxtrumpet, replacing the 50¢ NP electrolytics JBL used in their crossovers with better quality film capacitors will add much to your listening pleasure. Did it with my 4412As. Night & day difference.
