    Going to revisit my first Telefunken build, or rebuild.. These arrived badly made, and even worse packed... shoddy or shocking pick your term.






    I was advised to start again but I like a challenge so rebuilt and improved them.












    A decent result for me. Better than I thought

    as you can see they are about 3 ohm speakers hence why I built the double ones producing about 6 ohms

    What a transformation you did there Grant. Must have involved many hours. Yes shoddy/shocking to a thing of beauty.

    Just a mention that, very sadly, i am going to be selling all my vinyl, TT, carts, arm and cleaner in near future, due to health issues. Im not able to handle the vinyl so easy now and its better off in safer hands I think as most of it is in great shape. been collecting vinyl for 50 years so it will be a miss..

    Sad news Grant.

    Disappointed to hear that Grant, especially as you have been a collector for such a long time

    Indeed. But needs must I guess. About 400 records still in collection so it takes up a lot of room too.
    As well doing while I'm able.

    In the end it's the message, not the medium, in our world?
    I had a 6 foot by 6 foot (ex-wine shop display) to hold my 1000-ish LPs, but now I sit in same space at the iMac listening viaitunes HDD into my Zigmahornets.
    Don't miss the LPs at all. Can call up the music quickly, though, in these spotify days, that's quite usual now.
    Enjoy the space.
    Chris.
