Default Gumby gets new clothes :-)

and a full complement of P11WH :-))

Me very happy !!

Should shortly have a Rod Elliott 2-way stereo x-o at about 100 Hz to do the work between array and bass unit.

Difficult to get a good pic of all of him and retain corect colour (more learnin' needed re camera)

The image linked below is closer and gives the correct colour !

Sorry about the size of the files, but gotta show off his fine livery !!!

Default even better !!!!

The array sections are driven by a pair of Dynaco MkIV rebuilt with regulated power etc etc with Sovtec 6550 tubes. Bass is active driven buy a 80wrms a side Marantz. Preamp is Bryston 1B, Tascam CD-401. Thorens turntable..

Yep they sound pretty darn good !!
