Here is an old system I had using Hornshoppe Wannabee clones, sunfire sub, Cayin EL34 pp amp that was transsexual in that it could also be a low powered SET using one output tube per channel. Also had a Sun 300 B that was highly modded in the system for a while.







They took the place of the Newform 645s if you can believe it.





Also put into use a Yamaha 03D digital mixer to e.q. the Wannabees.



Had nice sound also with the CR Developments Kalypso EL 84 PP

VERY cool, merdy!  I love the speaker rig.  Have you experimented with many of the Altec large format horns, or "just" the 1005s?

merdy

thanks Redboy, yes i have many many horns,1803,1505,803,203b,mantaray ,511 etc, the best ones that worked in my room size was the 1005 and 203b ,the big boys while amazing i would get some wall reflection so i would plug some socks in the outside cells

my next plan

You're going mono??

For this you need to contact G Georgopoulos. He's our mono specialist: http://georgopoulos.awardspace.com/   8)

It's good to have a plan.  :) 

Ever experiment with the 32A?  I seem to have acquired a pair of 'em, am considering chasing down some appropriate drivers and pairing them with some 414s.  My goals aren't quite as ambitious as yours apparently, but the 1505s do have a certain inexplicable allure to me...

Same amp and DAC and speaker drivers (Lowther PM5A and Eminence Beta 15), but new bass amp (Crown  XLS1500), Placette Audio passive RVC and Nelson Pass speaker design.  Best sound yet.

Could you offer more details about the slot loaded OB?  It really looks like something I would like to try.

That OB/RiPole looks pretty cool!

Also, what's that coming down the wall at twelve o'clock?

Can you get them out away from the wall more?
