One of my favorite bands just released a new album with a video. The band is Nolatet featuring Mike Dillon, Brian Haas, James Singleton & Johnny Vidacovich. The album is No Revenge Necessary. I grew up going to Mike Dillon shows like BillGoat, Harry Ape BMX, and a few others. It has been a pleasure watching Mike Dillon grow as a musician.

I don’t have very much information about this massive plinth and turntable. I always wondered what to do with such a large slab of walnut. I dig it.

This is a Brittish ad for what looks like a push pull KT66 amplifier.
The ad does not do it justice. This gear looks great.

Folded bass horn has dual 12″ drivers, 233hz tractrix horn has JBL2482s. round tractrix tweeters are some B&C DE250s. The tweeters are a pretty hot so they need a bit of taming. Now to build some top hats and get some tubes…

Intact Audio Strikes Again

By | January 31st, 2018|Categories: ItisHifi - Vintage|Tags: , |

I always get excited when a package arrives from Intact Audio aka Dave Slagle. In fact if it wasn’t for encouraging words from Dave, Jeffrey, JRob and local friend who prevents me from becoming a french fry Chris I doubt I would be doing any DIY audio.

Anyway if your into DIY audio and you haven’t run into Intact Audio do yourself a favor and check it out.… Read the full article
