      Hi Dave, I'm enjoying my SA-300 connected to Triton 7 speakers. But I don't get vertical imaging, the voice stays about 3' from the floor. Is this normal? Tweaks? Tubes? Thanks!

      Hi Dave- Recently secured (2) W5M amps w/ different OPTs along w/ matching P2 pres and want to restore it all. Sent you a PM to get your thoughts. Suggestions would be most appreciated. Thank you!

      Hi Dave, many thanks for helping out with my Fisher x-101-d amp !
      Is there anything that you would replace or upgrade without any doubt or question ?
      Grid resistors, coupling caps etc. ? Also, the tone control is pretty ineffective and I wonder whether those
      ECC83 tubes are responsible for that issue ?
      Thanks, klaus

      Hi Dave, I've been reading your expertise on HF-60s mods. Is that something you do for other Eico owners, or who would you recommend to execute your modification? Thanks, Michael

      Hi, I have a 299 with a different circuit than the one you were helping with in an earlier thread. Mine is like the Drawing No.D-299-CI,1958. 7189 power tubes and 6BL8 phase inverters. It has one bias pot on the back apron. It has one DC bal pot and one AC bal pot for each channel.Could you explain or point me to a link that explains how to make the
      adjustments regarding these pots.Thank you.Dave

      Just found it. Like my mother always used to say: "Look with your eyes, not with your mouth." Wise woman. Going to read through the 27 pages of your thread now. Infinite gratitude, and please ignore my idiocy. I haven't gotten that far in yet, but I do hope you did some good A/B listening tests... One person said he preferred it to the Marantz 8B and Citation II !!

      Many Thanks,
      Dan

      Hi Dave, you are a legend in vint. audio circles. I feel very privileged to write you.

      I’m not abrupt but only have 420 characters - I’m inq. abt a thread from 2013 re: Bogen MO-A series amps. You did a restore on a 200A w/8417s, & taking meas. of the unit. Could you post your findings AND impressions? Many would be very grateful. Certain your time is very valuable- any help is NOT taken for granted.

      W/Respect

      Old thread, but a question. On my 8601-20 Maggi, Pins 3&4 of the 6EU7 are soldered together. I see no other posts about this. Should this remain?

      Hey Mr. Gillespie...I recently bought a Fisher FM 200B that I'm gonna recap and i would like to have it aligned and tweaked by someone who really knows what they are doing..I asked Larry Derouin and he said thats you.
      Would you be willing to help me and about how much would cost? Thanks!

      Dave, on the W2 write up, first page, last post...you get into dissipation, and list P+S at 25.2 mA. Suspecting you meant Watts...:)

      Hi Dave, Several AK members recommended you as a person (wizard, guru, etc.!) that could restore a Fisher X-202-B amplifier back to life....would you have time in the near future to take a look? I live in Warner Robins and travel to North GA several times a year....so I could bring it to you. Please advise, thanks! Mike

      Hi Dave

      Hi - I have my 1962 Fisher Futura III RE: the front pilot light on the bottom front of the cabinet. Released the pilot light's yellow/black wires from underneath the cab - there's a recess the black tube that holds the #47 fits in - was there an outer light bezel? Does the #47 bulb remove from the tube. Tube rotates 360 on the base - did I damage the bulb's connection when I tried to remove? Thanks, Mo

      Hello All, New to the forum - have a 1962 Fisher Futura III stereo 660 amp/480 tuner with mpx 70. Won't power up. The 3 amp fuse on the amp appears blown. I realize something caused the fuse to blow. DCGillespie, The console is located in rural Georgia at my parents, can't locate anyone qualified to look at it. I've removed the 3 units, cleaned the tubes pins/wring - nothing. Would appreciate any help. Thanks, Mo

      Greetings Dave, and how are you? I have an issue with a HH Scott 299A amplifier, it seems to be producing too much gain to the point of over modulating and causing distortion at the speakers. This occurs even when the volume pot is only turned up a pinch. Any Ideas as to what could be causing this issue? Please let me know.

      Thank you,
      Jim
