    Default Advice on SDA-1's

    Hello, I am just getting started in getting back to vinyl and am looking to purchase some SDA's.
    Anything in particular I should be aware of? These speakers are close to where I live and seem reasonably priced...

    Depends on weather the guy put in film caps or more electrolytic's. New electrolytic caps really are not going to increase the value of the speaker. 300.00 is a little on the high side I'd offer 150.00 and see if he bites. When i rebuilt my XO I used all Sonicaps and Mills resistors. Decent speakers but not the most desirable but they are close and get you the SDA effect.

    Thank you for the response! I am a little confused on which speakers these are specifically. I guess SRS would be the best, but would definitely settle for 1.2 or 1C's. Can you tell which these are?

    I agree with oldfatdogs,they look like sda-1's. In any event, I don't think you will be disappointed with the sound, if you drive them properly.

    those are SDA1. Not SDA1a or SDA1 signature..... plain old SDA1 will either have a 3pin socket or Blade/Blade interconnect.
