    • 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.
    • 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 ...
    • This is beyond ridiculous. But hope it all works out for you. The wait will have been worth it.   Shakey
    • How old are these Heresy speakers? Serial #24P219 & #24P220
    • 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.    
    • @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.
    • 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.
    • 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!
