Hello everybody. I ended up here a while back thanks to F1Nut, a fellow CARVER enthusiast. It is he who I blame for a most excellent journey in upgrading my system. About $35K later (mostly in construction), my home theatre is within a couple of weeks of opening its doors. To celebrate this momentous occassion, I would love nothing more than for my vintage RTA-12Cs to make a triumphant return at the head of the room.
Thanks to F1Nut's expert diagnosis and a tweeter replacement, they sound excellent. However, the cabinet finish is beginning to show the 20 years we have been together. The grilles need to be redone too. I bought a Polk CSI-5 center speaker in cherry finish and, although close, it would be nice if all three speakers matched exactly.
I am not the handiest of persons so, can anyone recommend someone in the Washington, DC, or southern Maryland area who would be able to recondition the cabinets?
