Well friends... I just got off the phone with the man himself... and to summarize; my bank account got much smaller!
NX-Oticas on order!! Sonicap and foil inductor upgrade for the mids, and copper by-pass cap for the tweeter circuit. Should be fully-ish upgraded?
To say the least, I am VERY excited... I will be using my Rythmik F15HP until I can afford the dual OB 12"s. I'll most likely build the cabinets for these right away so I can get everything finished at the same time. Then when another few bucks come my way, order the subs/amps and toss them in there.
Oh, and of course I had to pickup 16' of the 24 strand speaker cable, tube connectors both sides, and the tube connectors to retro-fit inside the Odyssey amps! Although after talking with Danny the Elekit TU-8600S 300B kit is looking quite tasty... But then again those little chip amps...
I'd have a really hard time selling the Odysseys tho. I think they're quite fantastic, personally.
Oh, and for the room treatments; I'm planning on getting the PI Audio MR T's diffusion panels for behind the speakers, on top of the TV (most likely make a quick cleat system that I can take it on and off easily), second reflection points, and behind the sitting position - which I've also moved the couch 1' away from the back wall to help with this. Then absorption on the first reflection points (wall and ceiling). Then see what I need to do with getting the bass under control - which will be quite different than I'm experiencing now with the box sub.
I also may be doing a passive in-line cap to high pass the Oticas. But we'll see if that's needed or not. If I do I'll most likely solder it directly inside the amps since I'll be de-soldering the binding posts in there to replace it with tube connectors anyways.
Time to start practicing my soldering skills... It's been a few years... AKA high school
I'll start a new thread once I get these rolling! Hope you guys will enjoy!
Thanks again for all the help and advice everyone has already given... And the biggest shoutout of all to Danny for making this all possible for the average Joe to be able to afford true high end audio!
More to come!!
