Hi all,

I'm still looking for any GR-Research speakers to listen to in the SF Bay Area.  will trade 30 minutes for wine.

Thanks in advance,

Steven

Hey, I lived in SJ (well, Cupertino) for twenty years. Anyone I know?

Just got a pair of Super-Vs. I'm located in State College, PA if anyone wants to come listen on my modest setup.

Warning: Small apartment and not fully tweaked yet.

...and available to audition.
First plunked down where the Vandersteen 5As used to be.


Pulled about 6" farther away from the front wall.






Just 8 days with me and sounding slowly better all the time.  Main amps are Coincident Frankenstein IIs.


E-mail me at jeffreybehr(at)cox(dot)net if you're interested.

Indeed.  I retrieved these in Albuquerque, and that trip was quite...interesting.   :wink:  Of 14 hours on the road, about 10 were spent in a rain or snow storm.

Those are some amazing speakers.  I was at RMAF when they were introduced.   There aren't many speakers that I'd swap my LS9's for, but the Serenty 7's are on that short list.   :green:

X-LS Encores / X-CS Encore with upgraded crossovers

N1X

LGK 1.0

and

N3 with upgraded crossovers, including platinum by-pass caps

The N3's are paired with a sealed 12" Direct Servo sub with the Rythmik driver

PM me if you are interested in listening to any of these

Mike

Hey Mike, does local-boy Dwight Twilley (with his great guitarist Bill Pitcock IV) play around Tulsa much? He was coming up right before Tom Petty (who stopped in Tulsa on his way from Florida to L.A., to get some Twilley mentoring), but for some reason the bus done passed him by. Shoulda been a star! Well, he was, sorta and briefly.

I have a pair of LGK speakers that I am delighted with and would be happy to audition them if you want to come by.
Cheers, Mark

Ed,

Sorry about the delay. I don't know who Dwight Twilley is.

No love from his own hometown! He's the best thing to come out of Tulsa since Leon Russell and J.J.Cale. Tom Petty, on his drive from Florida to L.A. to get a record deal in the mid-70's, stopped in to see Dwight in Tulsa and get his advice concerning the record business. Twilley had been signed to Shelter Records the year before by Denny Cordell, and the 1st Twight Twilley Band album (entitled I'm on Fire, also the hit single on the album) came out in '76. It's killer! That's Petty playing bass in the early DTB videos.
