I have had great luck using the jig with my 2 prs of 6600's as fronts for 2 systems one using a pr of 4400 as rears for one set with 1+1 for the other. debating if to use a model 1 on it's side inder the Elite plasmas for centre channel.

I have... the free stading Hologram.. cant rember the # but is was the best..... You could run any preamp an Amp combo You wonter...
Lot olded Pass amps an tube preamps...
But found if i set the Acoustats Xs...With the Sevos tube amps....Put in a biger room ..i could get the same.. but better sound with out the hologram or the Dig. Time linse.....BuT Great stuff..
I sold Carver in the 80-90s....lot of fun...in the bigger room i could get the Acoustats 10'-15' apart....the hologram is relly for speakers like 6' apart...for the best sound..
In a small room an B&W 801s 802s,M 804s.,Near,Klipsch,Mcintosh,Quad 57s....An even the the Carver AL3 ribbon.....Could not live with out the Hologram....But that was Me...
lot of other Real Audiopiles... po-po it!
Hell i have a Sunfire TGP2 here now that has the Hologram in it....
.good luck

I'm thinking about upgrading my two Spectra 11 pairs to a Spectra 22 pair. So I if I'm not mistaken I will need either two MK-2123 interfaces or four TTA-223 transformers. If someone has these parts for sale please send me a PM.

Yes, the conversion will require either (2) MK-2123 interfaces (wired for two panels) or (4) TTA-223 transformers. However, if you get only transformers, you will also need several resistors and capacitors to complete the high-voltage dividing network.

Hi Andy! I bought a spectra 33 back in 2004 and been on an air conditioned storage at uhaul in it's original box. Should I be concerned about it not being used in 9 yrs? The army kept me from pulling it out of storage due to deployments.

I would not be too concerned about the long storage time. You may experience a period where they might not sound their best, but this should improve within a few days of being re-energized.
