    • Why the simple answer is marketing. There are cheapskates like me who buy 12g zip cord 100' at a time and then there are those golden ear's that can apparently detect differences to subtle for me. Golden ears are blessed with insatiable desire to spend money and marketing likes them.
    • Yes, but I don't want speakers and sub overlapping.   My room HEAVILY emphasizes bass.  I didn't buy the speakers for bass reproduction. I have the firepower for that. I understand what you are saying however and you aren't wrong.   I COULD use it as is.   I wish the there was an 80 hz crossover option built into speakers.   I have heard these hd32a several times (outdoors) and I was thpirjgly impressed. I'm really hoping and thinking that these will be 396 killers for a fraction of the price.   
    • The self powered RCF with built-in DSP has everything EQ'd and time aligned above 45Hz, so with an SMS-1 (or sub amp w/DSP) set at 45Hz low pass, you would not need an additional external crossover.
    • I would trade my P37s for a pair of Cornwall IVs
    • I'm not saying it's the same, but it looks a lot alike, certainly the same basics with differences for OEMs          
    • Timber matching for for surround is generally not as big of a deal. You might consider an in wall, or a ceiling speaker. I sold my RS-7's surrounds due to a remodel which left no wall for me to hang my left rear surround on, so, I purchased a pair of in ceiling Klipsch CDT5800 C2's and they do a great job. You can angle them to the MLP and best of all, they are wife approved... at least my wife likes them (no small feat). 
    • They were on craigslist for about 3 weeks and I finally got around to calling about them on Friday.  Saturday left home about 9:30 and got back a 1:30 - about 140 miles round trip. The TL606 's were made back in the 80's and have some heavy EVM type 15 's in them. The seller said that one was a 200watt version, the other 400watt. I didn't remove them to look yet but I am sure that will happen in time. I had one problem, they had some speakon NL2 connectors on the back and I had no cables so they were just stands until yesterday when I went looking for cables to hook them up. I stopped at the local music store and they didn't have any for the older NL2 jacks so the next stop was Pro Sound Service in Braintree. In about 20 minutes I was good to go with NL4 jacks and plugs for $25. I got home and looked around for wire and all I could find were a couple of old drop light cords that were in a pile of wire so I use them. One orange and the other yellow, I spent about half an hour installing the ends and putting the new jacks in place. I then got to turn on the radio and hit it at the right time, the moldies  station were just starting to play "Teenage Wasteland" by the Who so with the H700 's on one B & K 1400 and TL606 's on another I turned up the advent 300 used as a preamp to about half way and John Entwistle's bass playing nor the TL606 's didn't let me down. I brought in the center MWMs clone and the Khorn top (K400 horn with a Peavey 22a and a K77round magnet) powered by another amp,  a B & K 2500 (5 channels with separate gains,  one channel each set up in Mono for the Khorn top and and MWMs, the other three channels are set up as a left, a right for the Belle's , and I think the other is dead with these 3 channels set at 0 gain ). After the song ended I turned it down and left the house to rest my ears. I think they are keepers   one TL606 in vinyl The other in rat fur
    • I can't speak to the 1206 or 806, but I have an 855A 5-channel amp that I bought used a year or so ago. Solid amp, well-built, sounds good. No turn-on thump because it has a delay circuit.
    • Thanks Daledee, I had never heard of Schitt, but the Vidar does look like a a possible contender. I'll definitely consider it.
    • When I have built I find that you want really precise fit up you measure the lot of plywood you have bought for size and adjust accordingly. That 12 or 15mm wood has a tolerance of + or - that can effect fit up if you do not check first then cut.
