    Sure you could buy something prettier and in a suitable colour easily enough...try a stationary shop on ebay or amazon.

    It's all in hand! A few other little tricks to try yet. I also want to get the gauze dust caps out without marking the cones.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    Basically, it's the sticky strips cut off grey 'Post It Notes' and stuck on the cones at angles. Easily removed. It has definitely killed some of the plastic cone signature tonality. This is just to get a measure of what effects can be obtained. I have ideas about peelable rubber paint too.
    Copydex was always a favourite of mine for cones.

    Copydex is similar to silicone rubber, in that it does not offer great damping, although it will add mass. Polyprop and Ployurethane compounds seem better.

    Current SUT line up:



    Left to right, Luxman AD8000/8020, Art Audio pair, Osawa OS-100T, Fidelity Research FRT-3

    Each sounds excellent, but the collection has to be thinned. The Art Audio are being sold I expect, dunno why really, they sound as good as the others and are very quiet, no hint of hum. The Osawa is staying. It's the rarest and sounds superb. The Luxman I'm just getting used to, but it's promising. As for the FRT-3. It sounds great and I'm rather fond of it. Bit of a dilemma really.

    Changed my mind about the Art Audio SUTs. I've decided to hang on to them. I've been using them again and realise how good they are. Very quiet, nice open and solid sound and smooth at the top.

    I may have a speaker renovation/modification project to bung on here in a couple of weeks. My workshop is halfway through a five year overdue sort out, so I'll have room to set up all the equipment and do some interesting stuff!

    Sometimes I miss hearing your lovely system, Geoff.

    Might come down to West London, sometime next year for a dew days. Wouldn't mind seeing those corner speakers!

    Whoopee! I love it when a plan comes together.

    My latest Tannoy purchase is the Ascots and although I've had a little playing around with damping the cone, ideally paper pulp replacement cones were what I had in mind.

    So, what do we have here? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2718695359...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    Just bought. A pair of SRM 10B cones in what looks like very nice condition. To be dispatched to me in a couple of weeks after I return from a break.

    Once I get these fitted there should be a big transformation in the sound. I was very lucky to find a low resonance rubber roll surround set, they are rare. Most 10" Tannoy cones on eBay have the hard corrugated edge.
