Re: Classic 60se Speaker recommendations

Hola John, As a musician bass and guitar player too, I do like to understand the difference between a F and aF#. I do like a lot the Martin Logan electrostatic speakers. The Electromotions model ( $ 2500.00 retail ) is a classic. Many of the members perhaps like deeper bass, because at the specs, ML...

Re: MF2500 throwing 68 DCvolt out on right channel

Hola. Bambadoo is right! Follow his instructions. 68 DC Volts can fried your speaker coils. Do not plug any speakers to the output terminal. If you want to load the amp, use a 30 Watt resistor, from 4 to 8 ohms. My advice is, you must check all the output transistors from emitter to collector leakag...

Re: PV11 trouble shooting

Hola, in other to find out if the preamp is the culprit, do this: 1) Turn off your amp 2) Swap the input channels. (L to the right input and R to the left input) 3) Turn on the amplifier. If you have the same side working, its the amp, if the bad channel now is working, the problem is coming from th...

Joe, I do know that at the factory, they can fix your issues. Talk with Jeff Fisher. He is a very handy man, and very humble. Just give it a try.
Happy listening!

Re: ET-7 follow up.

Joe, you can not go wrong with it. It is designed by the topology of the Gat Series 2. This is what C-J says about the ET7: ET7 Enhanced-Triode Preamplifier. The ET7 enhance triode line-stage preamplifier has been designed to incorporate the advances made with the Series 2 upgrade to our flagship GA...

Re: ET-7 follow up.

Congratulations Roberto. The ET7 sounds like a winner. So happy for you. Hola Joe. Today, the 25th is my birthday. So, I decided to give me a present, and this is the Teddy Pardo linear power supply for my DAC Exasound. I did not expected how good this tweak is. It gave more extension on both ways,...

ET-7 follow up.

Hola my dear friends! Now my beloved ET-7 is giving only love. The inner detail had increased at such point that I can say, without any doubt, this is my very first hi end sound system. I had a lot of brands before. But never got this. The instruments are crystal clear with the right tonality. Voice...

Re: ET3 burn in period?

I second that too Jonathan. Our world is expensive and and a lot brands to try their performance. There are old goods that sound marvellous. One thing that must rake in consideration is if the unit offered had being repaired by a not so good technician. Believe me when I say that at service tou find...

They work with the immediate memory, which is very easy to get confused. Our immediate memory only last in a trained ears, only 15 to 20 seconds.

Re: ET3 burn in period?

Andrey, I do believe that the cost of the driver won´t matter. This might the reason why the seller did sell them. On the other hand, you got a very good price. The apparent lack of high frequency is, perhaps, because you are used to listen other speakers that are bright. Just give yourself some tim...

Re: ET3 burn in period?

Hey Jonathan, All I can say is: I am in Heaven. The system synergy is fantastic. The coherence, the harmonic texture of the musical instruments, the right size of the instruments, the air between them, the timbre, the nuances of the music, the transparency, all this is very, very good. Of course it ...

Re: ET3 burn in period?

Bad news and good news. Bad because you have to spend some money for a new driver. Good, because you found the problem.
Its going to take for you some time for the new driver. Please keep us posted regarding your findings.

Re: ET3 burn in period?

Jazzz, I have this problem more usual that you could think. I do not why, but the truck moving on the road could cause this, and the distortion is evident. It sounds horrible. Just be sure that no cable is touching the speaker´s cone. Also, when the alignment of the magnet is not well centered, part...

Re: ET3 burn in period?

Hola. I am going to chime here a little bit more. Usually that problem is due to one of the Lead coil cable that it is touching the speaker cone. Address the cable in a such manner that the lead cable does not touches it. Check this out, it might be your problem. Another possibility is that during t...

Re: ET3 burn in period?

It looks that you have a bad tube...if you have a spare, change it and take a listen. Usually changing the tube fixes the problem. It is not normal to have a odd noise in your system. Change the 6922 first and check.
Happy listening!

Re: ET3 burn in period?

hola Jazzz, Usually the break in time is about 200 to 300 hours...yes that´s a lot of time. Just leave your preamp on with music. (you do not need to play it through the system) and in 10 days, you are going to start to enjoy C-J sound! I did happen to me too. It really takes that time...mine start ...
