    • Hello all and thank you for your help. I am new to Klispch since I recently received a pair of RP-280's. First my setup. Front RP-280's with RP-140sa Atmos on each. Center RP 450c, Rear RP-250's and the subwoofer is a R-115sw. I am running 14 gauge wire to all. I was also given a NAD-765 receiver but it is not 4K (I was told by NAD they are working on an update, but it's still not done).  I also have an Onkyo TX-RZ620 4K receiver. So my question, are either of these receivers powerful enough for the speakers above or should I look into bigger, better, stronger one? If so, which is your recommendation and why? Currently I am using the Onkyo and when I crank the volume past 75-80, I get distortion which I heard can be damaging to speakers. True?  I have not hooked up the NAD since it is not 4K but I suppose I can run all video directly to TV and then run audio back to the NAD. I truly appreciate your recommendation and feedback.
    • Never thought about that, it does.   I never did say, but they are secure, the metal is 1/4" thick and each bracket is bolted with 2  3" lag bolts. There is no drywall it's 1/2" plywood over 2- 2"x12"s stacked on top of each other and notched and bolted into a 6" pole inside that square post and another on each end of that opening. All post in the house 16 go through the slab and 4' in the ground and go tie in to the roof.
    •   Although this subject could currently be considered political, it' snot. I did use pine cones I would gather in the woods or corn cobs that I gathered in the local corn fields until I noticed a poop-up add while updating my opinion on the buttfacebuk app. At first I squeezed and grimaced and thought 'just another advertisement' until I thought 'well, bears do s**t in the woods' so there must be some truth to the claims of the product. I do believe that more goes into every roll and It does eliminate that wasteful wadding.    
    •   Havent pulled the trigger just yet, but I am 90% settled on MC152. I wanted to stick with separates. Power seems like a good fit. whatever processor I go with should have ability to play stereo mode.    While looking into the ma5300 I also discovered the new ma252 (looks sharp). Both units had appeal but what ultimately is turning me away would be the 100w/ per channel.  When switching from stereo to power my home theater fronts, I would feel more comfortable with a little headroom.    I also called audiocalssics and inquired about an mc8207, mc205 & mc207, reasonable prices but I'm nervous buying used & also have incentive to purchase new( can use almost $1k in gift cards) Anyone think I am making a mistake? 
    •   Worry more about your drinking water.
    • In what ways did it sound better?  Clarity?  Bass reach?  Dynamics?  Low distortion?
    • Because they aren't open right now, and some of you guys stay up all night figuring this stuff out.    Actually, good suggestion.  Should I direct my question to BJC or SVS?
    •   The outer hole is too small.  For now I fit them in as snug as they would go and just progressively tightened down the screws.  Half is fully seated, the other half has about 2mm of the metal edge sticking up.  It’s not permanent.  I just wanted to get them in to hear the difference.  They sound fantastic.   I suppose that cork would work, but I suspect that the gasket already makes it pretty close to airtight even though it’s not fully seated.   i picked up the Forte IIs from a yard sale.  $20 for the pair.  Passives were shredded, probably by cats, but otherwise excellent condition.  So now, I happily own a complete set of Forte IIs, which are replacing a pair of Quartets that I bought in the mid-90s.  Cost me $180 total.  Probably the most enjoyable yard sale deal I ever made.
    • Why not contact BJC directly?
