So if anything got missed out and you got no reply... please resend correspondence

PS: Now setup FBackup 4.1 and backup every day. Not getting caught again.

The Elsinores were also developed with Tube Gainclones is mind, and here it is:

Hi Joe,

I sent some comments about the Dc bias circuit, i have been listening to it for a while now....

seems to help at higher volumes in terms of clarity.

Hi Dan

Yes, I like what it does. But my system - and I hate to sound a bit up myself - has such high resolution that I may hear things in a way that others do not. But the Terra Firma means that the usual digitalis is so far removed from digital playback, and high frequencies are really affected here (no real surprise) and makes the difference more obvious, IMO.

But whatever, the DC Bias is a DIY option and anybody who has Elsinores may or may not decide to try it.

Cheers.

Joe R.

thats fine joe,

i am not that easily offended

i will happily admit my system has flaws, probably my room has more flaws than my system any how... the setup to listen to the difference was:

basic sony dvd player (cant remeber model #) nothing special.
optical out into: Denon AVR1905 as preamp:
analogue out into: 50W class A amp based on Hiraga "Le Class A" (linked in my sig line.)

Basically took out the Solen tin foils replaced each with four metal polys and biased with 18V through 100k with 1k in parallel prior to the filter.

to be honest i think to have a fair comparison i would need to use 4 solen tin foils per side, as the normal metal polys are not all that great.

I will probably return the crossover to unbiased with the tin foils
just for neatness.

"DC BIAS"

All I can say is, have not wanted to remove it since I put it in almost two months ago.

Rob, would that happen to be a center speaker by any chance?!

Regarding sensitivity of tghe elsinores I have heard 90-91dB being thrown around as a estimate but im sure someone here must have measured them?
