I just wrote this to a friend.

If he'd only played guitar like that, only wrote like that, only danced like that, only played very other instrument in a band like that, only sang, only produced…he’d be a huge star.

Prince is one of my all time favourites. I was hooked from the first drum kick of Dirty Mind in 1980 . His music has given me decades of joy, and will never stop.

I pulled these out after a very long absence. They were pulled from a studio. One woofer is the original JBL 116-A, the other a 116-H, the difference being the magnet (alnico in the A, ferrite in the H), and dust cap shape. They are wonderful speakers, classic JBL, and a tonic to me after a long period of listening to some really big speakers in my space.

Just arrived!

I've been looking one of these for years. England circa 1985. Flat earth pace and rhythm, sane  fairy dust to performance ratio. More than enough power for the Altec 14s. Stunning phono section. More to come.
