    Default Rotation.

    Ok. I've got a lot of stuff stashed away, and had some time with the wife
    out of the house to go nuts. I got out some amps and preamps, and the
    Hales. I tried the Rotel rb980 with the GNP Valkries. The 16 ohm rating
    sucked the life out of the Rotel. Bass wasn't good. The AR vt-60
    doesn't even flinch, just hook up the 16 ohm tap and go.
    Next up, the Hale Revelation Ones. Nice, heavy duty better bookshelf.
    The problem in one of the x-overs is fixed, and they sound good.
    Nice warm sound, surprising bass. I saw a review that called them
    forward sounding. Not by what I heard. They are about 86db rated,
    which means the 50 watt tube amp isn't going to rock out with these.
    The Rotel did a bit better, but the low end slam wasn't as good.
    I then tried the Parasound psp1000 pre in place of the AE Symphonies.
    Sorry, no contest. The AE with Mullards is better. The AE sounds pretty
    good with the current set-up. As long as I stay at resonable volume
    (no wife yelling at me to turn it down) it all works pretty good together.
    I still need to sew up the grill cloth for the Hales. I really need to
    save up for somehting more efficient, like B&W 683's. That would be a
    fine stopping point without breaking the bank.

    16 ohm is built for tubes, no suprise there. Dibs on the Hales when/if broham.

    683's? I'd love to have a pair to kick around. I tell you though, right now, the RTiA5's PSW1000 combo with Steve Earle's latest - and a little James Beam - the world seems like a little better place.

    Cheers,

    Check your lips at the door woman. Shake your hips like battleships. Yeah, all the white girls trip when I sing at Sunday service.

    You might be waiting a while on those. I've spent some quality time with
    Dynaudio booksheves, and these seem to hold their own.
    I just hope I can do a passable job sewing up the grill cloth for installation.

    I don't know what's up lately with speakers on CL. I've seen a buttload of
    pretty decent sets show up. Timeframe 600's, Vandersteen 2Cs,
    Dalquist dq-30s, JBL l65s,B&Ws and others. A lot of Classic Mac stuff, too.
    I guess XMAS funds are coming up short.
