    • This is the dilemma I am facing. It's even worse in Canada because shipping, duties and taxes totals around $40 USD per driver. So each driver would cost me $80-$100 USD all in.   As for the Heresy comparison, here is an all-Canadian analysis if you are interested: H1's go for around $600 USD here and maybe $750 for the H2's. After shipping (I live on an island) I'm looking at a total price of $700 - $850 USD for a pair of Heresy's.    When you say bullet proof, are the Heresy's known to be better built or ...?   
    • When I A/B'd the CWI to the CWIII, I preferred the CWI for the overall presentation, likely due to the larger midrange horn and lower crossover point of the CWI.   The CWIII does offer some improvement in the low end.   The tweeter in the CWIII may sound more refined to you (smoother, extended highs maybe?) than the CWI tweeter (K77).  But there are drop-in replacement tweeters if that is a problem.  Except for recapping the crossovers, dampening the mid horns, and adding a 9kZ frequency trap, my CWI's are stock and I think they sound fine.
    • @dwilawyer   Pardon the shameless plug for my own for sale thread, but this: https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/196074-orchard-audio-pecanpi-all-in-one-streamerdac/   Is a really nice all in one solution that gets you a Pi in a quality case, a linear power supply and XLR/RCA output, dual mono Burr Brown flagship DAC chips. This is the type of thing you want in your Living Room, Kitchen, Bedroom where as the above post is a little more budget friendly for outdoor music. You can even do WiFi with a USB dongle. Phone/Tablet to manage the music, the PecanPi to process it and outputs to your existing AVR, Preamp, etc., obviously that feeds your amp/speakers...but you already knew that.    
    • Hi guys,   I am running a Schiit Saga+ preamp to a Vidar power amp. The Vidar should be able to safely flex down to 4 ohms with these specs from the website:   Power Output: Stereo, 8 Ohms: 100W RMS per channel Stereo, 4 Ohms: 200W RMS per channel Mono, 8 ohms: 400W RMS    For the record, the Schiit with kg4 combination sounds great to my ears. I was running a pair of KEF Q350's prior to this and, although they have their strengths, the KEF's sound dull in comparison to the kg4's. I also have a B&W 610 10" sealed subwoofer that I keep turned down low and it just helps to fill things out.
    • I haven't used subs at all, and would love a system that doesn't need another box or two in the room.     I'm following this all the time, even when I don't post to this thread. It's excellent, and I only wish I had the funds to do this. I will be going active with my MWMs, but would LOVE to shrink the size down to something the wife would be happier about (she's fine with what I have, but getting back some floor space is a good thing).  
    • If you are like me you probably have an old amp or two laying around. So my outdoor configuration consists of: Computer network similar to picture in first post....most of us with a decent Internet connection probably have the start of this Ethernet cable (could be wireless with some more geek-tech stuff, but I like hard wired) to a switch in the basement where all the electronics are for outdoor TV/Cable box/etc live A switch is nothing more than a way to plug a bunch of computer stuff together on a network. If not too tech savvy, you probably have one and don't know it. Raspberry Pi 4 like above but with a "HAT" that plugs into the Pi making the Pi a DAC Analog out from Pi/HAT/DAC combo to an old Carver TFM-25 Carver Left/Right speaker out to Klipsch AW-650 mounted under my deck shooting out toward the pool/backyard eero Mesh Network WiFi extenders so I can control the music easily 200+ feet into my backyard Does this help or do you need more info?   Amp/speakers are the part you already know. You just have to get the music files (Ripped CDs or Streamed via Internet) to the amp. That is where the Pi/HAT/DAC combo comes in. Think of it as a CD player....except the CDs don't spin anymore they are 1s and Zeros on a computer HDD.   Here is a PI with DAC/HAT similar to my outdoor set up. Basically a tiny computer, network thingy, USB combo with RCA out for the Analog to your amp.  
    • Rick, With all due respect, trying second guess someone or question their perspective and motivation does not accomplish anything positive. If the advice has been good, solid and helpful (I believe it has from what I have seen), then the appropriate response is simple. It starts by saying "Thank you".    Of course, this is just my opinion, -Tom
