No volume control on 2 unmarked inputs. Just passes through signal at maximum volume. No manual for the Candela.

Very exciting with the M100s.

I worked on a 1950s Philco TV in Grade 12. The kind with the rotating CRT. I touched the flyback transformer and evaporated the fingerprint from my right index finger. That woke me up. I bet it was more exciting than the Candela.

That must have been very exciting!

I just dropped off a TEAC 4300 reel to reel with Hans my local electronics and cuckoo clock repair person, and he had a Philco TV that looked like it came from the set of Lost in Space. It was gold colored and the CRT stood above the case.

Is that the one that smoothed your finger tip?

That's some coincidence! I think 2X6 worked on a 1950's Philco when he was in grade 12, except the TV was only a year old at the time.

I don't know if I'd trust a nutty clock repair person with my TEAC.

We can agree on one thing; M100's sound great and they sound great loud. At the end of the day, that's all that matters. Hey, it's the end of the day. Time to further diminish my hearing. (Lost in Space, ha! Saw every one. Each worse then the last. Didn't care. It was Sci-Fi and it was free.)

What are you talking about?

Snarky, treacherous Dr. Smith?!? Danger, Danger Will Robinson? Stern, upright, Republican parents. the first minivan. It was a terrific show.

The one I worked on was tan. Multiple problems with it but the nastiest one was an intermittent cap in the grid circuit of the twin triode for the horizontal oscillator. That caused me no end of grief. That was 33 years ago and I remember it like it was yesterday.
