If you love prog rock, then you are probably into guitar tone, then you just may be looking for the warmth of a tube amp. Trouble is... which one. I wish I had 5K to spend on an amp:)The B&W's are a bit on the chunky side to take with you to a HiFi store to test drive amps, so perhaps call to a store with your a few of your favourite CD's/records and test drive a few tube amps with whatever speakers they claim could keep up with the 802's (there may be none:)) to at least short list yourself a few amps that you would like to try on the 802's. then get them to bring out that short list of amps back to yours, and trail em in your lounge. Probably a good idea to ring around first and see if you can find a shop that will agree up front to do this, but is the best way to buy gear. I would do it for you! You are ready to spend $5000 when all said and done, so explain to them if they want the sale, this is how its gonna go. It is impossible to trail anything properly without it being in your listening environment. Hope this advice helps, I have been repairing amps for HiFi shops my whole life, and the good ones will work with you in this way. Cheers

I have no power to the wheels on my 92 integra--do i need to replace both axels???

I would suggest replacing the passenger side and then driving the car and listen for any popping noise while turning your vehicle to identify problems with the drivers side. Depending on the cost of the boot replacement the shaft can be just a few dollars more, I priced a boot for my pickup the other day and the cost was 43.oo and the shaft was only 52.00 complete. I suggest just replacing the part that you know is broken and then listen for any other damage. I will follow your progress. You dont want to be a parts replacer until you know for certain that the part is bad.

Well it sounds like you need a mono block amplifier for the subwoofers. Subwoofers are ment for low frequency. If you try to run regular audio through the subwoofer the sound will become distorted at a high volume. If you have a crossover on the amplifier try putting it on LP. Also do not exceed the RMX rateing on the subwoofer because if you do they will also distort. If you try adding the mono block on to it and it is still doing it you may also be running to much power to the subwoofers.

There is a or should be a 12AX7 preamp tube driving the microphone side of the amp. That tube could be bad, they are only about 15 to 20 dollars for a new one, don't worry about NOS stuff, waste of money if you ask me. Tung Sol makes good 12AX7s. Also check the volume control. Spray it out with some contact cleaner and rotate the control about 10 times, this will get rid of any dust or oxidation that has occured over time.

Since you don't get any sound it should be just a tube replacement.

Dell 4700c

take off the side panel of the computer and listen to it a little closer when its on. there are very few actual moving parts so i should be fairly easy to isolate the noise. if it's a fan anywhere in the computer it can be replaced for less than 20 dollars and shouldn't be left till it dies, replace it , it's protecting something.

If it's a cd drive making the noise , it can be replaced for 25 dollars.

If it's the hard drive, then you need to back up your important files AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, because when it crashes, you generally have a hard time retrieving stored information from it.
hard drives can be replaced for 50 to 150 dollars depending on type and how large it is.
Most times the noise from a computer comes from the fans and power supply, then the cd/dvd roms , then the hard drive : so check them in that order. post here again if you need further assistance.. Regards
