    Now, with the benefit of a few years knowledge and a bit of skill with a soldering iron, this thread makes me weep....LOL

    Good luck with your renovation.

    P.s...being 54 this is the first....and last....time I use LOL

    Apart from that.
    Ouch! JR150's, rare!

    Just to add, having now also had the caps replaced (Falcon), this is to my mind without doubt worth doing. In all the caps, cover foam, connectors, feet and a bit of Velcro cost me just under 60 and I in terms of looks and sound I'm convinced they could now stand proud next to any small speaker. They really are a revelation.

    Great. Glad to hear they hit the spot. I think the only way you could get better is to have a word with Paul at RFC and discuss cross over tweaks. I did talk to him but ended up spending funds on another project!!!! They can be pushed a little further but this means experimenting with positioning, spikes, and stands.

    I did exchange a couple of emails with Paul who was extremely helpful though in the end decided to just change the caps (one straightforward option as suggestion by him). I was happy to keep things original, simple and, I'll admit it, low cost !

    Did you splash out on new foam covers Andrew ? These really do finish them off.

    HI I have a pair of JR150 that I bought after repairing my brothers set (new KEF drive units) they sound great along with the stands look good as well . Only problem is the wife who will not let them in the house ( in my man cave at moment) or the Quad ESL-57!
