General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Dynacos !??

The new caps that went into my Dynacos when refurbished.

First, tell that to the late great J Gordon Holt. Second, until you've heard my setup you know not of what you speak padawan.

Here's an excerpt from one of Gordon's reviews:

We compared the SAE Mark II with four other amplifiers: a Dynaco Stereo 70 and a pair of Marantz Model 9s (two of the best tube-type amps), the top-rated (to date) Dynaco Stereo 120 transistor amp, and one of the costliest and most highly-rated Marantz solid-state units, the Model 15. Listening tests were made using a variety of representative loudspeaker systems.

The above came from a review 3 yrs after the ST120'S debut and it was still Stereophile's top rated SS amp, go figure. Not bad for the worst sounding amp ever.

But you keep shouting how bad they are along with the other ill informed, it helps to keep the prices down for those who know better, he says laughing all the way to the bank.
