Totally agree. The ply top is under the speaker. Stained you would only see slight striping of Baltic Birch. Could do solid wood too up to you. I just did 15" legs from a nice private wood supplier called Austin Hardwoods.

You can also buy hairpin legs for furniture that you could just screw in:

That is some great advice. I was going to see my options regarding the existing back panel and didn't want to drill it, as I'd like to keep it original. Now that I know I can move the wire connector easily, I'll look into that.

It sounds like a sonic benefits can be had from doing relatively minor things like a baltic birch back panel, interior support brace, blue jeans insulation, brass screws, and not to mention the stand. Thanks for all the info on this and the Vintage Codex thread!

Sure my pleasure. If you do the back I would recommend adding a brace similar to the stock design. Altec recommended bracing panels over 3 sq. ft to divide the panel into 2 smaller panels. Diagonally if ~square. If the aspect ratio is < 3:4 then divide the larger dimension into 2 smaller pieces. They recommend 1" x 2" brace glued and screwed on edge.

FYI. I didn't do my braces on edge but they were nice maple pieces (hard!)

Also, the secret sauce is to use hide glue...

Well after selling the O/93 and going back to the Altec Flamencos I ended up getting a pair of O/96. While I don't think my Montille/Aurieges is optimal, I will stop my speaker hunt for a while...
I wonder if Line Magnetic 219, 518 or the new 508 would be better?
I know I should think about Leben 600cs and higher end Shindo, but the LM line of products looks very appealing to me...

My preferred combination with the O/96 is the Shindo Monbrison and Haut Brion, which drive the O/96 better than the Aurieges/Montille.

I do like the Leben CS600 with the O/96 as well - not quite the detail of the Shindo, but very close, great space and ease, and dynamics.

Any news in the meantime?
CFz, have you got the chance to listen to a Shindo amp already?

Hi Balasz,
Yes, I purchased a Cortese a while back to go with the Flamencos. For the kind of music I listen to which is mostly jazz I think it's a superb amp. The whole system allowed me to connect to my music in a way I hadn't experienced before. The only other Shindo amp I've heard was the Montille EL84 with in a poorly matched system. I'd love to hear more though.
