Default Hello from near Toronto, Canada

Bless me father for I have sinned. I have this "thing" for speakers. It began back in Uni days when I built a pair of speakers using electro voice components. (8 inch cone speaker and horn tweeter) When I married, my wife came with her own Tannoy Berkley speakers (that sounded just a bit better than my home-builts.) Lately, I've been buying speaker pairs from garage sales for $5 or $10. These include Polk Audio, JBL 500, Rega, Cerwin Vega, and just yesterday a pair of pioneer HPM 100.

Can anyone recommend a shop to refoam the Tannoy cones in the Toronto area, please?

Welcome to the forum.

I don't know any shops, but if you post over in the Multi-Way forum I'm sure you'll get an answer.
