  1. Past hour
  2. One of the TD-124 tables is together and though not fully restored as it could be it is enough that it's running great! The other ( with a black plinth, Ortofon RMG-212 tonearm, and Ortofon S 15-M/T both rebuilt to new standards) will be put in the system once everything returns from STS. It's time for a custom rack for the tables.
  3. I Read this advice and it made me wonder. I have Cornwall 1’s with some harsh mid sounds. Currently have Crites A55g drivers with Crites B2 crossovers. I am not crossover savvy at all. Thinking about a drive upgrade for more clarity. Using PS Audio Stellar amp, awaiting arrival of Prima Luna tube preamp, thinking the pre will soften the sound, but not provide more clarity. many adice on getting better midrange clarity at I’ve 70db? Thanks
  4. For dual 12" subs, somewhere around 2000 cft
  5. What you say in your first paragraph there is not a good idea. Its a GREAT idea! Pretty solid speaker placement imo, however sub placement is really hard to tell if its done correctly or not. Guess you just have to do some experimenting on that front. Would also recommend a second sub. Always good to cover windows with thicker than usual curtains. Seems like youve given this potential setup some good consideration. So all in all, youve done great.
  6. Hope I didn't end up under that moniker, I really wanted those @justinsweber made Cornscalas a couple years ago. Attempted to get some of those twice. Maybe later! Heck if I had known about you and this place before I started my rebuild... it would be tubes and tubes and tubes Ya know what that new washer & dryer stink, they are geared more to save water and electricity so much that they don't clean or dry clothes worth a darn. Have to rinse with vinegar to get the extra mud & saltsoap out. and sometimes dry an extra fifteen
  7. Yes Sir. The place feels even more empty since they drove off with it yesterday. Been a piano in this house as long as I can remember, heard the music from it all the same. Mom not being here, except the urn in the living room and now her thing that was her "thing" most of her entire life hit hard last evening. note the floorboard not having the newest shade on it because I was blocked from getting there. Got the flat on the walls with my brush extender couldn't get the semi-gloss.
  8. Oh this could get ugly quick 😄.............I have 40 recommendations. But as I have never heard a NAD amp I will remain silent
  9. You will be hard pressed to upgrade from the NAD. I have an NAD integrated w 80 watts/ driving a set of Belles and that is more than enough for their environment. I have not heard Chorus II but have heard the Chorus 1 and they definitely like more power. They are fairly efficient, but really start to kick with the extra input. I like Carver and have had several of them, but they are getting on in years. Give a look at the Emotiva's for sale in the garage sale section. They double the wattage you currently have but that should only net out around and extra 3db but I bet would sound nice together. You would even come in under budget.
  10. Hi Never had that problem, however it seems youve already isolated the problem. Have you tried troubleshooting your apc? How often did this happen?
  11. It's a sure sign your getting old, all the talk about health problems. Just kidding, maby, everyone here is mostly old, except for the few young ones. And we know who you are, your the ones who say things like what about Hersey vs Cornwall vs RF7 vs JBL vs Polk vs in ceilings, and do I need a sub with each one and will it be better than my bose, and explain in detail please ? OK it's not that bad, just bored. Anyway some might need those night glasses depending on where you live. Mostly because these days there is possibly many people standing in the streets and they say it's not cool to run them over even by accident.
  12. Well, listened to one of them yesterday. Did not want to open both boxes if I did not like what I heard with the one. First impressions are very good. If anything these are less resonant than the Truextent/2441s - less stridency on massed strings not as if the JBL were strident in any way, nowhere close, of course. But after hearing the titanium diaphragm in the KLIPSCH supplied driver I was concerned. CELESTION has tamed titanium. With less EQ than was required before I get response to 22K - within a dB or so - I do not really want them flat up there. I could have a rise if I wanted it. Less EQ is required in general though the hump in the 1000 hz region is more pronounced but easier to quell. Nice shape. One would think these drivers and the K-402 are very compatible. One wonders if this is the driver Mr. Delgado will choose for his update of the JUBILEE? He could not go wrong. They really do go down to 300, in fact real close to 200 - one could EQ them flat from 200 to 22k - but one worries if that would put stress on the driver and is not needed. I like the idea of having a smooth slope instead of a cliff which is what the cutoff would be at 200 hz. So I listened to one channel with the CELESTION and the other with the JBL, I did not find the CLESTION channel calling attention to itself - always a good sign. Listening to Sandy Denny on FAIRPORT CONVENTION's LIEGE AND LEIF her voice had more immediacy and dynamics from the CELESTION and a purity that I believe is due to the fact that I can get the woofer out of the way so much quicker with the CELESTION. I like the idea of the FASTON connectors instead of those stupid spring loaded things. There is a neoprene foam on the face which makes an excellent gasket. They are made in the United Kingdom and not in China - a very pleasant surprise. In my most unhumble opinion they are worth every penny of what is charged. AND I have a screen right at the face of the driver so i will not be as confused about where to put the ports in the horn. Now I wonder if I should place them further back from the CD or leave them just where Chris A placed his? Tomorrow a report on stereo. Hope my enthusiasm has not been overstated in haste. And to find a buyer for the JBLs ...
  13. This is beyond ridiculous. But hope it all works out for you. The wait will have been worth it. Shakey
  14. How old are these Heresy speakers? Serial #24P219 & #24P220
  15. I'll start here, if no interest, Reverb and eBay. Both in stellar condition, including original feet and pre/power amp connector. Amp works great - I had it hooked up for a few weeks. Tuner is untested, may or may not work, looks like a couple lights need to be replaced. ALSO have genuine and matching original walnut veneer shells - one has marks on the top - I probably did that 10 years ago - but otherwise is in dammed good condition, as is the second shell, that is, in dammed good condition and with no caveats. Pics on request as I'm limited here Priced as follows: 1060: $600 ... fair price any day 105B: $100 ... maybe Great Shell ... $150 ... fair price any day Marked Shell ... $100 ... maybe So that's $950 for the lot ... $875 quantity discount ... I'll separate maybe ... depending ... and might negotiate ... maybe ... depending. All rights reserved.
  16. @Goodin Be sure and update after upgrades. Mine are in need of similar upgrades so your take on them afterwards is valuable to me. Used the Crites tweeter & X/O upgrades on my KG1's KG4's & Quartets. Sure you'll be happy with the SQ upgrades from his work also.
  17. I am currently looking to find a new amplifier to power my Klipsch Chorus iis. Maybe what i have is sufficient / there isn't a better option but want to get some opinions. I am currently using a NAD C 350 integrated amp. 60 watts per channel. I think this is a good / adequate amplifier but am up for keeping my eyes open for certain makes / models that would be an upgrade / better match for the Chorus. NAD is what i bought back in 1988 when I bought my first pair of Klipsch KG2s and have always been a little partial to these but am completely open to all ideas. I also have a Adcom GFA 5300 / GTP 350 combo. I have not hooked these up to the Klipsch but in a side by side comparison against the NAD powering some older polks (a year ago) the NAD was the clear winner in sound quality to my ears. There are some carver amps local but not sure if these would be an upgrade......And I'd need to find a pre. 8 individual Carver amplifiers for sale. 1, TFM 45: $450.00 / 3, TFM 25’s: $300.00 each. / 3, TFM 15 CB’s $ 225.00 each. 1, TFM 15: $175.00. All amps work well and sound fantastic. Lights and meters operational as designed. Could you suggest some good used / new options in the 400-700 dollar range that you feel would be an upgrade. Thank you for your consideration.
  18. An OCD person collects and hordes. You sound like you desire to own a specific collection of high end gear to play with and experience........ and you KNOW what you’re doing. Honestly that is the pure definition of ‘audiophile’. Enjoy your learned expertise. Hell, celebrate it!
  19. Many here have audio addiction to some extent including myself. Have to admit drugs and alcohol can make music sound more enjoyable but the way i go about avoiding unneeded purchases normally is to only buy something after hearing something that sounds better than one of my personal components but even then could just be the room itself working better in some fashion. Don't fall too far down the well to a point you cannot crawl back out.
  20. Today
  21. A new business Idea. Live vicariously through others wallets 😀.............(I think I would quickly go broke )
  22. Hello Vincent That's Serge's compound. I'm testing them, but compared to the Belles, they go lower in the bass, despite the tweak on the Belles it's undeniable. This has transformed the system, the music is less directional, much more full-bodied, it comes out of the speakers less.
  23. They have been moved to a different trailer (again!) and projected delivery is still 8/14, so hopefully tomorrow will be the day. 🤞
  24. Food, chewing gum, toothpaste, bait. They like it all.
