Careful, you're showing your age now!

I'v just become the owner of a pair of original Kef 105's. I have to say I'm a little bit disappointed with them, they are in very good condition all round as far as I can see.

Hello,

Has anyone had a chance to do a direct comparison of the Linn Kan and Harbeth HL-P3? I know the Harbeth's well, having owned several pairs, but I have never heard the Kan's. Just wondering ...

Sorry to be so ignorant, but regarding the LED circuit, where do the actual wires from the circuit board connect to on the crossover?
