    • Thanks. I was thinking that with two sets of Heresys going on a two channel receiver(Marantz 2270)that I’m diminishing quality at higher volumes. Would changing my remote speakers(301 instead) less starve my mains. With four Heresys I’m getting popping from my woofers. I do like bass but not to the point of distortion. 
    •   Oh my God. The hospital actually waived the $1500.00 balance? This is incredible. This should be national NEWS. It's amazing you didn't suffer a heart attack on that news. JJK
    • Cabs a little rough. No affiliation   Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk    
    • I'm not sure what you are asking here, "does it change things...?"   I owned Bose 301 II's for 20 years, it is one of the best sounding speakers Bose ever made.  It is a very nice sounding, nicely balanced speaker for low to mid SPL.  It has an 8" woofer and two tweeters which use direct reflecting technology, much like today's Atmos speakers.  And sorry to tell you my Klipsch friends, it will dig deeper than the Heresy despite "no highs no lows it must be Bose" mantra.  It doesn't POP those lower frequencies hard but it will still get there.   The problem with the 301 is when you try to push it to higher SPL the sound becomes compressed and unbalanced, fast!  The high does not go any higher, the middle becomes muddy as does the bass.  It just sounds awful when pushed.   The Heresy can play louder and still keep the low, mid and HF balance together.  At mid to high SPL is where the Heresy will walk away from the Bose.
    • The grills look nice, it's a shame the Seller didn't take any pics of the sides or tops of the cabs.  Even with no other pics it won't affect the sale.   With the average price for H2's at $432 by my numbers, as long as the drivers are all good those won't have a problem finding a new home.
    • wow it's sunny...frost on the car.. time for coffee
    • It is actually a tube, just a different looking one. 
    • Thanks for the alert with the photo.  Watch for PM.    
    • Back to the argument, can you make SS sound like tube Let's just say the two are different.  This is all part of the null hypothesis.   The two systems are equal.  Now let's assume you stay in one signal path over another.  Similar results with my gear.  I am all for upgrades but, the very small leap in trying ti make everything analog, is not a high priority.   The sound should be good with minimal tweaks.  Look to the room before DAC's and gear rep;acement.  This is something each owner should and  needs to go thru.
