Someone told me FM acoustics power amp is not a good match with Magnepan? Anyone with this two brand experience ?

Just found out the tweeter repair kit is in country, so waiting for delivery. And it's a super long weekend, so might be Tuesday.

I also hooked up the speakers (SMGc's, used). One side works beautifully, no buzz, just wonderful music (using the CD from the Nov hifi show). The other side definitely has problems in the highs, so either tweeter or cap. The mids and lows are all ok, again no buzzing, so I think it's likely the tweeter. I'll also be investigating electrical connectivity first, just to make sure.

Listening to the working side mono, with a Dayton amp bridged to mono and an LG Blu-ray playing the CD. Enjoying it. My daughter walked in, and she said "what a large bluetooth speaker!"

I connected it up this morning, and it's tweeting again!

Now waiting for the Super77 to dry a little more before I apply the Miloxane/FastBond. Then I'll staple the socks, re-attach the sides, legs, then voila!

You can use a light layer of acetone to remove the discolouration on the bonding layer for the wires.

If you want to get a cleaner look that is....

Thanks for looking and the suggestion, @Fai. I'm just very thrilled the work paid off.

Can't wait to hook both up. Will bring back memories of my first pair almost 30 years ago.
