I'll admit to being a big mass loaded transmission line fan having owned them for nearly 30 years.  Bass reflex and horn enclosures are suited to different drivers, so its an apple/orange issue right from the start.

But I prefer tubes to conventional solid state from 60 Hz on up.  I'd put chip and digital amps in their own categories and typically ahead of either tube or conventional solid state.

Wouldn't be nice if each of us could record our audio "beliefs" with our profile so you could know just what context to take comments/opinions in?

Say that's a novel idea Jeff, about putting our audio beliefs in our user profiles.  I like that.  But I don't think I would know what to say.    ::)

My audio beliefs: -
1.     I do it for fun.
2.     I like what I like.
3.     I change my mind a lot (if you had a mind like mine, you'd change it too)
4.     I don't spend anything I don't need to spend.

That's it ... boring perhaps, but ....

Alf I think mine would be identical to the letter.

Yeah, it's a vacuum tube.  
Just cut out the dust cap, & the magnet holds it on.  
Kinda like the sockets in yur HDTs.  
Robert

BTW
It does make a very noticable difference!

The flux of the magnet holds it on and just the pins are contacting the pole piece? This doesn't seem like a stable surface area but I guess it must be.  :)

Take care,

Yup!  Just the pins.  
Quite unlike the very solid feeling connection of the socket in the 206s.  
Steve said he tried a socket & it didn't work very well with the 167s.  
They stay in place fine though (unless you bump them); I've never had one fall out.  
I was going to cut a piece of rod, the diameter of the tube,  maybe 1/4" thick, and drill holes for the pins to fit tightly; that would stick better, but so far haven't seen the need.

I just wanted to say hello to everyone and add that last week I stopped by Decware. Steve is a great guy and let me listen to some of his equipment and many of his ideas.. My general impression of him and his equipment is extremely favorable. Now, you might ask yourself, OK, but why leave this type of a message in the Corner horn forum? My reasoning revolves around one simple idea. Steve's corner horn setup sounds fantatstic!

I have been in and around gear professionally and otherwise from about 1971. I have been a huge fan of several brands of speakers, but in the short amount of listening I was able to do at DECware, I can tell you that I am extremely impressed by the corner horns. In my belief, it is one of the best sounding speakers I have ever heard. It blows my mind to think he is getting all of that from a single 6.5" driver.. Yes, I will be building at least one pair of the horns.

Steve is a great resource and in every aspect I have seen, he views his equipment with a passion and sense of perfection that one seldom sees in anything.. I have no affiliation with Steve other than immediate and immense respect. He is a true audiophile.

IMO, if you haven't listened to these things yet, you should.

Excuse my ignorance, but what is the driver he's using in it?

At the time I heard them, I believe he had a modified Fostex FE-167 in them.  Simply incredible. He tells me that there is a better combination as a two way, but I can't remember what drivers it consisted of. I will likely play with a few of my own ideas once built. Such as a two way with a ESS Heil tweeter.. etc etc.

Frankly, I am also thinking that I will build a set of imperial horns as well, even though I never heard those..
