FWIW, NASA spec's crimp connections on space mission hardware. Soldered connections are more prone to vibration induced metal fatigue, and ultimately failure. A good crimp connection, with correctly sized connectors and crimp die's, and a calibrated crimp tool, forms what is essentially a cold weld...

What a score tonight! Leak TL/12 Plus tube monoblock amp. Lenco L59 turntable, and Fisher PR-6 tube phono preamp. All for $50! Can't get the Leak playing yet, as it needs an adapter for the preamp 9-pin socker (to female RCA), and a step down transformer for the 220V. But it did have all-Mullard tu...

Uh oh, hope you're not using the vice grips as pictured!! :shock:

They have a curved jaw so you can grip in the curved jaw and get a proper hold on things. The hardened teeth will dig into the steel so it has less change of spinning in the jaws.

Screw extractor should work, especially if it's aluminium.


+1 if they didn't use loctite, however it almost looks like the base section is pressed in.

You'd think they'd use proper grade 8 hardware for speakers in this price range.

Damage liability ends with the damaged product. Anything more than that would not be covered by insurance. It's unfortunate what happened, but any special treatment above and beyond the repair damage to the one speaker would be on your dime. IMHO, only a lawyer would benefit from your situation. Of ...

That's good for manufacturer, buyer will buy another amp in 15 yrs, as electrolytic caps in old one will be half dead. Or just buy a 20 year old Jeff Rowland, Krell, or Mark Levinson, etc and have it completely recapped. You'll have a great amp at the fraction of the cost of a new one. And it can a...

Jolida JD9 (original, not version II) for MM and HOMC, + SUT if you want to use LOMC's. They occasionally show up on CAM. I have one but I'm building my own phono stage now. Whats the rest of your system consist of? You may buy an inexpensive phono pre and it'll be noisy. I have a very revealing sy...
