Defo yeah. And running i2s in from a separate transport can mean LOTS of hassle.

Cheers, Lee.

Edit: I'd just like to add that my standard of work is considerably better than what is shown in that pic

Please note that the pictures I have posted are really old and do not reflect the actual quality of work of everybody involved.

Simon, thanks for the list of changes and their "correct" order. I have not been as methodical to say the least. Regarding cones: I bought some ebony ones on e-bay. Due to the way the '67 is built, it is very hard to ballance on three cones. There's always one that is not as firmly grounded. I have added weight to the top but this is not a very elegant solution. If I understand rightly, one cone goes under the center of the drive and the others are to find the best ballance. Are yours fixed/glued, or just placed (as are mine)?

I'm not sure about a correct order from a technical or sonics standpoint but from an ease-of-doing-and-adding-to perspective there is a right way.

When I had a CD63 I just had two at the front at the extreme corners and one at the back in the middle. Mine was a KI with extra bitument so it was pretty heavy. I used Russ Andrews' Jumbo Oak Cones, which are very large indeed. I've used double-sided sticky tape and super glue on various boxes, either works just fine. The rear one wants to be more or less under the transformer and the fronts shouldn't matter too much unless you have extra transformers giving a very uneven weight distribution, in which case counter-ballast is the way to go!

Simon
