oh yeah

I forgot 'bout him..... that's right he did play there.

I also remember Kenny Carpenter playing there a few times as well.
the sound system there was good, during the day the place would sell pizza and at night it would be Inferno's

great buy..... looking to get one some day

peace aways

do you have a pic of the full rear?

All Bozaks have some hum (a side effect of high-impedance circuitry), but you don't want to exacerbate it by not grounding your connections. If your sockets are shorted to the chassis, all hell could break loose in terms of hum if you rack it!

You need to get yourself some insulated sockets – I have attached a photo for reference. You may need to enlarge the holes slightly, but it’s an easy job.

BTW – Roman Ricardo is a legend – it must’ve been cool to meet him!

I love minimal techno and micro house, but the tonearms don't help with that because I spin that kind of music digital. These arms do give a healthy bottom end to disco and boogie though, I highly recommend them. It turns out that the Bozak mods were probably done in 1988 judging by the numbers on the switch housings. I gotta say, I am very impressed with the sound from this thing. Also it has a mixed bag of transistors in it too. Most are BC237/BC177B but there are BC237/2N5087 on the 140-12 and 180-12 cards.

Very nice!
What does the Tannoy sound like compared to the B&W's?
I like the way you can mount them side ways because of the coaxial design of the drive unit.
I see they are first series DM-601, I also had the DM-602S1's for a bit then went on to have the newer S3's

when the nighbours get rowdy..


Urei 813b powered by two Crown PS-200s bridged mono. These aren't really set up properly and I'm still trying to work out where/how to mount these!!

Hi VinylJunkie.. I have to say that I had held the Tannoy 600A in high esteem after a demo in a pro shop with a sub. At the time they were $1500 canadian.. I just couldn't spend that kinda cash.. I settled on a new, old stock Crown 150 rated 95 watts @ 8 ohms for $500 and bought a new pair of the DM601 S1 for $550.

I bought the Tannoys second hand for $500 recently.. for stereo imaging they are crystal clear. I'd say the 601s handle the bass better though. I use a Quest 10" sub to round out the lower end. Mounted in a proper environment as in a studio, I'd say the Tannoys would sound more refined in the high end, with the stereo imaging better. The warmth I get with the 601/Crown combo is great! My friends prefer the sound on the 601s. To this day I am 100% satisfied with the way I went, after getting the Tannoys mint at a steal. I like to A/B demo stuff back and forth between the two sets.. now if I can only soffit mount the Ureis...

Incredible. I want all of those speakers! I love coaxial (dual concentric) speakers and have owned 15" Stephen Tru-Sonics and Now own some Kef Uni-Q's, next are some Tannoys for monitoring. $500 is a great deal. Would you think $350 is a good deal for the passive ones?

I would say thats reasonable (are they new?) you would have to pair them with a good warm amp. What are you using with the KEF. I'm not sure what the difference would be between Active/Powered in the Tannoy 600. I guess it depends on your room and your amp/mixer/sub combo. If you like big bass (who doesn't) the 6" may not be what your looking for. A good solid sub is required. When using them on dance music and driving them a bit there is a noticeable amount of unwanted noise associated with the air ports..

If your looking for studio monitors to mix down vocals or for stereo imaging they are superb for revealing the dynamics of the higher frequencies. Pinpoint.

My Urei project is up in the air.. I recently changed out the lower 15"s with JBL 2226H. I am debating whether or not to keep the Urei 813b stock, in vintage form? or use a diff. x-over and bi or tri-amping them.. I have the two 15" JBL 2235H left over from the switchout so I'm looking to build a sub with a BGW PF3 amp.

I have a Bryston 3B and a subwoofer. I think I am going to hold out for powered monitors, because that way I can run a set of mains on the Bryston and then monitor with the Tannoys. And knowing myself, I will spend way more in the long run if I buy speakers then another amp and cables for my monitoring setup.

another 3B would be sick, but like you said.. budget starts to go out the window. Where are you located? I think a good bet in the powered monitor is the M-Audio Ex-66, pr. nib $1K usd. The BX8A are worth a listen too at $500..

Is the EFX-1000 the same type of poo-poo? I would like to use an efx unit with a new bozak EQ-6..

Legend says, that Stephens sounded better than JBL!

And, both Stephens and JBL speakers have alot of physical similarities!

Please, tell us how the Stephens Tru Sonics sounded?

Hmm, never seen those Urei monitors used as DJ monitors before. I have only seen them as studio monitors. How are they as dj monitors? The reason that I ask is that my brother has a pair of the smaller version the 809 ( only 1 15 with the Blue horn coming out the center) as his main studio monitors.
