    • This is a bad experience for the customer which ruins the reputation of the company. Which means in the long run means it is  bad for the company. Short sighted management IMHO. Spend the money and time to figure out why failures are premature and fix the problem. Production in China is relatively cheap, rework here in USA not so much.
    • At least here in Canada: https://www.cbc.ca/news/entertainment/cbc-baby-its-cold-reinstate-1.4941087   Nice to see the revisionist thought police lose one.   Wb
    • These little Jamo (Klipsch family) bookies are getting some great reviews and are on sale for $199/pr.   https://www.crutchfield.com/p_701S803WN/Jamo-S-803-Walnut.html   I literally just ordered a pair to play with, although I have absolutely no need for them.  😃
    • Have not heard it but read great reviews.  I owned an Integra DMT-40.4 network stereo receiver for a few years and loved everything about it.  It sounded great, very versatile, and affordable.  The Yamaha looks to be even nicer with a bit more grunt.   What about RB-61II's, RP160Ms?   Bill
    • $800 is a good price in good shape. That is what I paid for my last set of Chorus I's in the Nashville area. I never get to buy and never sell for the "average prices" and maybe that is just for my area. Of course these were pristine and from the original owner from a good pet kid smoke free environment so they were not average quality either.I was lucky because this guys wife after all those years of ownership had decided they MUST GO. After having been in their house and seeing all the things she had I would have told her to shove it but that's me and not Mr Henpecked. Poor guy she literally was frantically helping push them into boxes and could not wait to see them leave. It was disgusting. I have never bought a set like this as cheap before and don't expect to do so again. Chorus II's? Last set I remember selling around here were from me and I had to pick them up just outside of Knoxville and they sold for $1,100 and the only work done on them was to recap the crossovers. I paid $800 for those but that was a couple of years ago and prices have gone up since then.  The trip was not free and I bought them only because there were others I was buying from that area too. Real cost is speakers + drive expenses + repairs if needed and generally they all need recapping when this old. I don't expect to see this all in a chart bit it is reality if you are the buyer. The real cost to acquire.  No opinion on the Marantz other than it is old and lacking in features many want today. I bought an Integra 50.4 refurb from Crutchfield last year for just over $500 and it has more channels more honest power and many more ways to interact with your speakers and amps and sources. I pass up all old stuff because I want to use my computer or a USB drive as the audio source.
    • Picked up a bottle today.
    • I do not want a soundbar. This will be more for music.
    • I have owned the RP280s.   The RP280s on my system sounded really good with 2 channel music and even better with movies.  I realize they are not the same as his reviewed speakers, but still the in RP series.  From what I have seen the Klipsch engineers do a pretty good job.  Right?     If RP600M speakers sound anything like those then i can echo his sentiments.  RP series certainly deserves it due.         
    • The veneer chip bothers me a lot more than the grille which I thought looked pretty good. I could not see any saw over travel  so the guy took some care in doing this.
    • Same guts but with a rat fur cabinet.  They've been recapped with Audyn Plus, have 5 way binding posts added and an L Pad on the mids.  They sound great.
