    Default Pieces and Parts

    I grew weary of hauling my iPod from the truck to the exercise room (boy, that whole sentence is an oxymoron!) Anyway, I have way too much gear laying around or stored and (today at least) too much time on my hands.

    The pieces and parts:

    Spare Gateway laptop w/wireless NIC
    Dodd MLP preamp w/external PS (pulled out of storage)
    Rebuilt Dynaco ST-70
    Polk Audio SDA-2B Studio w/silk domes and upgraded xovers (my first Polks)
    Assorted ICs, speaker cables, and PCs (pulled out of storage)
    Dell 521 desktop system w/6000+ MP3s acting as wireless music server (my home office PC)

    Put it all together and whadaya' got? An amazing sounding "spare" system (now with remote and access to far more MP3s than my old iPod can house) for $0 additional cash outlay.

    I'm listening to Al Di Meola's "Kiss My Axe" as I type--one of my permanent reference albums--and it's spectacular. All in all a fun morning!

    there you go.. i'm amazed at how much gear some of us have just laying around unused.. and it's good gear too.. it bugs me to see gear go unused.. but I have a few pieces not utilized in any of my systems right now. but it still bugs me. ;)

    nms - I'm jealous that you have an "extra" pair of SDAs!!
    This pair of SDAs are keepers for me. The other two pair I've had were the "extras" (the SDA SRS are actually here in a closet, still waiting for the buyer to pick them up!)

    Whenever I take some time to listen to these 2B Studio models they never fail to draw me in. Very engaging, tight and accurate. I just finished listening to Buddy Guy and Juniour Wells "Last Time Around" from the next room. It sounded like you could just walk in there, grab a stool, and jam with them.

    wingnut4772 - Cool...and now you have a nice little gym set up.
    Thanks. It's a beginning. That little nook is actually a small offset in the total room footprint. Perfect for the Total Gym and music gear.

    danger boy - it bugs me to see gear go unused..
    Well, don't look at the lower shelves in that rack Al! :p There's a DVD player, 5.1 HK AVR500, and a 3 piece Nikko Alpha 250 separates system stuck in there....unused.

    There's nothing like extra gear until you find that you have no bed to sleep in....

    I've done open PR surgery on these, held their round little copper coil laden innards in my hands, and extracted their abscessed, Mexican capacitors and sand coffin resistors. They're 2Bs.

    well ok. they are your's of course.. just sayin'. they look like 2A's. I have 2B's. and they don't look like those. but then again. there are variations on nearly each model of vintage polk out there we're finding out.

    bottom line is they look and sound great!! :)

    That old rusty Dynaco iron I sold you, what, over 18 months ago - sure looks good.

    Great setup, love to get my ears on it.
