Two-way or three-way?
July 9, 2007
I have read many reviews of bookshelf speakers. They all
seem to be two-way speakers. I spoke to a friend, though, and he said I should get a
three-way speaker. A dealer told me that theres more to it than what my friend says.
What do you say?
In this case, I say to listen to your dealer. I also
recommend that you read this article. It should help to eliminate your confusion.
Forte amplifier repair
July 6, 2007
I inherited a Forte power amplifier and would like to have
it upgraded. I think the capacitors need to be replaced and I would like to get better
binding posts installed. I live in Nevada. Do you know of anyone that could do a good,
Here is the link to the fellow youd want to do
the repair: www.vintageamprepair.net.
His name is Jon Soderberg, and he was an employee of the Threshold Corporation when Nelson
Pass was designing the products. Lots of folks send in their Forte/Threshold gear for
updating, and he even keeps a stock of some vintage parts that youd think would be
long gone (like faceplates and binding posts). From what I have heard he is also very
reasonably priced. He is located in Citrus Heights, CA.

I have a set of Apature dual banana plugs that dont
seem to fit into the posts of my new amplifier. I was under the impression that this was a
standardized thing and that they would fit any equipment. I paid $25 for them and I am a
little upset that they wont fit. Any thoughts?
Join the club! I have run into this problem many times.
The bottom line is that some manufacturers adhere to standardized spacing and some dont.
I wish I could offer you some more useful device, but thats just the way it is.
