New Folded Corner Bass And Midrange Horns Play 78RPM Records

The New Folded Corner Bass Horn, New Folded Corner Midrange Horn and Magnavox horn tweeter provide a great way to hear what is recorded on old 78RPM records!

Here is a photo of the whole setup for monaural playback through one channel of a Lepai 2020A.  The phono preamp is a rewired Heathkit model AA15 amplifier.

The Magnavox tweeter through a series 4uF capacitor filter provides the treble response.  The signal is divided midrange/bass by a simple LC network.  The next photo is a close-up showing the hookup and the Lepai 2020A amplifier.

I will be posting some videos of this "High-End" system playing several 78RPM records, some of them more than 100 years old!
