Velodyne DD15 - worth repairing the plate amp?
@keppertup2  Thanks for that contact information and your experience with them.  
Velodyne DD15 - worth repairing the plate amp?
@rwwear No the DD series has automatic room and main speaker EQ if you run the output into your preamp. But I never use the electronic xover in the sub for the main speakers. I want my mains to run full range without any other electronics to dist...

Since my two DD-12 Plus are working fine I haven't visited Velodyne Acoustics GmbH in a while. Early on they had links to internationally located service providers who seemed to have changed over time. It appears they're now using the RMA form me...

Would you choose 1 ou 2 subwoofers for a stereo set?
I use two but I have used a distributed bass array of four placed asymmetrically within the room which eliminated all the rooms standing wave bass modes and provided immediate sense of timing or room loading. I've since manage a similar but not a...

CORRECTION: My Velodyne Plus subwoofers have been in my service for 12 years, not 22. Velodyne CA. Digital Drive Optimization technology may be over 20 years old beginning with the SMS-1. My apologies. ["On the other hand my current Plus 12’s an...

@gotolondon2 What did your dealer say about remedying this issue? I did resell all my Velodyne subwoofers with the introduction of each new model which would explain, as you say, ’just because.’ On the other hand my current Plus 12’s and the 10...

@oddiofyl   Every Velodyne sub of that Era will fail.   I sent my Dad's plate Amp on his HGS 10 to EBC in NJ about 5 years ago and it's been great since.    If this were the case I would expect far more original owner failure conformation. I re...

If you used your Velodyne DD Auto EQ or manually adjusted any of its parameters than no, I don't believe there's a modern equivalent of that level of processing except for the completely redesigned 2011 DD Plus now from Velodyne Acoustics GmbH (Au... 
Old and New-- adding Rel s510 or 812 Sub to heritage (older) McIntosh system-- Worth it?
Forty plus what? Ten? Fifteen? Be good to your back. Get the small wooden $12 dolly from Harbor Freight, a 20'-30' RCA cable from Blue Jeans cable and a ground lift plug. Decoupling with the dolly may be a second surprising improvement. In your ... 
Vitus RI-100 And REL G2 Sub Wiring Experience?
@diasoft  Vitus wrote to me: ".....we strongly recommend not to connect subwoofers to the speaker output of any of our amps." Thanks Dirk @bg3584   Their (Blue Jeans Cable) disclaimer made me so nervous to hook up my sub I never did even though I... 
Subwoofers and electrostatic speakers
@drbond  While adjusting frequency within a number of bands is an important parameter to correct does PBK offer any other manually adjustable parameters such as Xover and subsonic slopes, parametric filter frequency, contour levels and Q bandwidt... 
Subwoofers and electrostatic speakers
Does PBK provide adjustment of anything other than frequency response? Manual adjustments? Multiple memory presets?  
Avalon Radian owner manual
Try asking about a replacement part like a footer, screen, or a tweeter. An estimate on a factory rebuild? Something that means business to them.
