Updates – Tubes, transistors and other things

I’m writing up a few longer posts right now but here’s a quick update of recent developments:

My Fisher 500C was resurrected and I’m playing with it now. More detailed write-up to follow.

I just picked up another Pioneer SA-6500ii that wasn’t working. After some TLC it seems to be doing fine. It needs a cleaning then I’ll play with it some more. it also came with a dirty TX-606 tuner, which looks cool.

I also just picked up some Electro-Voice LS-12 Wolverine 12″ full-range speakers in some original-equipment enclosures. they look neat. And when I opened them up the Wolverines are in time-warp condition. My initial testing found everything was OK but I’m not sold on the sound yet – in the enclosures there’s a lot less low end than I was expecting. Maybe this is a good time to experiment with open baffles.
