    • Hi! Welcome to the forum!   $500 budget for receiver you say, Onkyo TX-NR686 I say. Trust me, you won't find any better "bang for buck" receiver than that. It has all the modern stuff a receiver should have nowadays too. It works great with movies, but better with music. However, I recommend staying away from the AccuEQ. Alternatively, you could also look into Yamaha, Pioneer or Sony and see if you might want something there. You don't need to bother with marantz, denon, Arcam, anthem and such... Anything thats worth it from them is kinda pricy for most.     Don't have any experience with the 120SW. I myself own a couple of r-115sw and I personally think they're great. However, for subs you might want to look at other brands than klipsch. Examples: SVS, Rythmik, Elac, Paradigm, Fluance. Might I also say that whichever sub you choose, think about getting two of them.        
    • Hmm alright. Well I know for a fact your onkyo can power three zones simultaneously. However, the most cost effective solution that entails using your passive klipsch speakers wirelessly, would be the rocketfish wireless adapters. Or another product like the rocketfish adapters... 
    • And that's just a few of the total and more are coming. I have too many speakers now. But that's what happens when you build many prototypes for test purposes.   My Klipsch K402s will probably be sold soon though. The K402s are great and someone else will enjoy them. The best drivers for them seems to be TAD 4001/4002 and Radian 950BePB. Just heard that the Radian Beryllium drivers have increases with at least $200 per driver. Prices are going up for Truextent Be. I may however be able to get a few Radian 950BePB for yesterday's price with a saving of at least $400 for a pair. If someone in Europe are interested let me know asap. It will only be valid till Radian runs out of stock of Be diaphragms they bought in 2018.
    • Yes, a couple of extra inches to play with  beats one...
    • Glad your doctors are happy, that sounds good, it's just going to take time.       I forgot about the humidity, your right it's lower, but it sure is dry and hot. We only went out to eat at one place, it was very casual but great food.   I guess you get used to whatever weather you have had most of your life, that seems normal to you.     .
    • I do not see cleaning to be a problem. What ever finish on the speakers, just do not use wet cloth because that way you are producing mud on the surfaces. I would first vacuum clean and then dry clothed, preferably with cheap microfiber cloth. Do it every so often and the boxes should be clean enough.
    • Very nice....love the colors.
    • That car was just a couple laps away from winning in 1967, blew a transmission. It's currently in the Indy museum. If you ever get the chance to go there, a museum visit is a must. I'm amazed at how barbaric most of those old cars are, some didn't even have seatbelts. Those mid 60s roadsters are beautiful machines. Most of them were also raced on dirt tracks.
