They sound fantastic! Very open and dynamic and so, so natural. I'm driving them with my ECL82SE amp in triode mode (1.6W!!!) This is better than my WAD 2A3PSE .
James, to make Lowther-esqe speakers sound much better, you should place lots of duct tape directly <i>over</i> the driver.

Seriously though, congrats on what you have so far, and I'm looking forward to seeing how they progress and your results etc.
I'm still going to try to hear an Oris system soon.

My 6B4G pp was 'off the road' last night as I blew up the psu...
Tsk, tsk. Of course, <i>I've</i> never done that.

I've looked back, but can't see a reference to what the LF driver in the Quasar is. Could you enlighten me please?

ciao

Default ...Super duper vox...

Brett,

The bass driver is a Supervox 285 GMF. Supervox 285 GMF

It's there as a 'helper' to counteract the baffle roll off and the combination works well down to around 40Hz...

The psu blow up was typical of 'more haste less speed' - but it gives me the chance to replace the electrolytics with polyprops. I have a couple of 330uF 1000V Siemans polyprops that are cylinders 5 inches across and 10" long Wait till I post pictures of these babys...

ciao

James

Looks like a good unit.

With those, you might just be up for the "Most Phallic Cap in an Amp" award, John Holmes Memorial edition.

hi james D & brett,

this is the another item i prepare to use in the 45/2a3 kit.
Do U feel good?
dO u advise me use telfon cable OR CLOTH WIRE.

Pls see the photo, the red & blue telfon tube is prepare to the easy easy to seperate the high volt use red colour telfon tube.
& Ground use Blue colour telfon tube.

I also prepare use the telfon 6N rectangle solid core to the deluxe kit with 1mm 4N pure silver rob for ground use to low the noise ( opinional)

I think use better item in DIY project but reasonable money can enjoy much diy interest.

thanks

Thomas
