    • Well never seen a speaker lab speaker. But you can do some research on them and there has to be an access panel somewhere on it. Put some pics on here of the inside of the top part which should be open. Pics of both sides also.   The woofer that goes in bass part of the cabinet has to have certain parameters and a woofer for a SUB is not going to work right. As far as the leaks go can you see where they are?  My 1974 Klipschorn had a few leaks and I repaired them from the inside with regular wood glue.  The crossover probably needs to be recapped also.   There are 2 drivers in the top section not sure if crossover points were same as Klipsch but probably close .
    • For just movies / TV, I would agree that an AVR can be sufficient.  For music, that has not been my experience but I guess I can say I haven't listened to every AVR out there.  Within the budget of $1,000, to include phono, I'd expect finding an AVR that can perform as well as separates for music difficult to find.  Keep in mind he is using Klipschorns and La Scalas which are VERY revealing when it comes to quality of amplification.  I think my solution also provides a better method for future upgrades in the chain.
    • New pair of Merlot P-17B's. Need to take some nicer pics of them.  
    •  I won't comment on PWK's statement. However he did talk about head room. and how while listening at 2 watts, certain passages would require 15 watts.  Great sounding reproduced music requires 30 to 40dbm of dynamic range.  5 watt SET got no  A** for that!   I have gone the SET route. And the above statement is real life.  Khorns are very full at 1 watt as indicated on the BAF1 VU meters. But certain passages do indeed 10~14 watts maybe a bit more.  A/B 'in my SET and then 125 watts of the best of the best SS from the 70's ( verily an amp that if built today would cost ~~8 to 10K)  there is no comparison. Tubes do sound good and yes better than lesser SS. BUT NOT BETTER THAN TOP SHELF SS.   One of the many reasons is how fast the amp responds. Good amps respond at > 100/ microvolts per second. Great SS amps > 190 microvolts / second. When playing horns, by their very nature they are fast. The is one of the reasons GREAT SS sounds so good on the MIGHTY K horn. That horn loaded woofer has no equal!  ....and you can not get that on 5 watts!   In addition at 5 watts Tubes are 1 to 3% distortion where as  GREAT SS is .005%
