    • I am thinking of trying an 2A3 circuit... or save the money for more speakers.
    • Neither, in my case.  I decided I liked the ideas Klipsch Heritage embody.  I knew from first-hand experience in my youth that they didn't sound the best (to me then).  But I've come to the realization that what sounds good is what you're used to or what you want to sound good.  I absolutely love the Forte III.  I bought them without audition.  More so now I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
    • Hello Deang,   That is easy.   It has far better transfer efficiency, so it allows you to migrate from an ugly-sounding 50 Watt amp, to a best-sounding-in-this-world 1 , maybe 2 Watt triode amp, and hear it all optimally.      Amps, not speakers, are the weakest link, as I have previously pointed out - from probably my first or second posting on this Forum.    Why don't you read this thread, posted recently on AA, and pay particular attention to those posts by "Tube Wrangler" .  Dennis is a great person,  a good friend of mine, who has a lifetime of experience owning / servicing movie theatres,  high-efficiency speakers, audio.    He builds, IMHO,  since 1989, the best amps I have ever heard .........................after me having attended audio shows for the last 60 plus years.      I hope you learn much, from his comments.  Here you are :   https://www.audioasylum.com/cgi/t.mpl?f=tubediy&m=266718     Jeff 
    • I dunno....I think the argument is should they be allowed to compete in Women's sports and I think not. Otoh, you guys seem to be focusing on your belief that it's important to identify with your sexual identity/genes from birth--Who cares?   Have you ever met a parent of a transgender child? How about a kid whose parents were openly weirdly religious? I have both and feel the latter posed more harm to their children/society than the former.  I agree when it comes to Women's sports but keep in mind Bruce Jenner won his Olympic Medals as a man. 
    • Just starting to get back into 2 channel after years away, I need a preamp so I am starting with a tube set, if I'm not happy with the sound from the tube pre and the SS amp I will update the amp too. One thing at a time. Simple as that. i'm leaning toward the Vincent SA T-7. Next step will be to restore/replace the old Dual Turntable. 
    • Long time lurker on this site is what actually brought me into klipsch originally and then a friend of mine who is on these forums brought the site up again. So here I am. Thanks for the welcome
    • Hey, I'm a bit of a newbie here. I own a Yamaha A-S501 amplifier and I've recently bought the RP-160M Reference Premiere bookshelf speakers, rated 8 ohm. The amplifier has an impedance switch (see attachment taken from Google Images) and I'm not sure which of the settings would be applicable here. It says LOW - at least 4 ohm or higher / HIGH - at least 6 ohm or higher. Well that's clarifying. I've found nothing helpful in the manual, let alone the internet where everyone seems to set it as they please. So I'm using only channel A. What is the correct impedance, low or high?
    • Look for the Jeff Beck documentary on Showtime, Jeff Beck: Still On The Run. I thought it was excellent.
    • If thats your budget per speaker then you really do need to look at the diy stuff
    • Yes anything that you add to the wood is going to change it from it's no finish state-  including wax which also yellow over time and needs maintenance.  A good wax finish offers more protection than a oil finish, but requires 100x more effort to maintain.  Water based poly's will not darken wood it is true, but in the case of OP's speakers- they will show, highlight and preserve every mark and irregularity in them and will make it stick out like a sore thumb whereas an oil finish will blend marks while giving some contrast to the grain that will build up over time with easy applications every other year or as needed.  It would be folly to apply water based poly to birch that wasn't factory new and clean.         Is this a lacquer finish or are these industrial models?  If it's the former, there is a specific method for repairing a lacquer finish.  It's involved, but not tremendously difficult, but you will have to color match your shade of black or it will look like shit.
