  5. I believe this was Super Deans thread. Couldnt find it. Anyhow who still indulges in music or even tv, movies, the bug you hid in your neighbors living room in 2 channel? The way music/noise was/?is meant to be? Sure movies have music...hifi,midfi or lowfi music is for 2 channels! Even if be in the new Klipsch Earhorns? Anybody? Anyone? Or just me, yeah i thought so...

  6. Jim Hunter is the official Klipsch Historian. I don't think he would sit still for any BS related to matters involving PK's loudspeakers or anything else for that matter. It's hard to imagine a situation involving fact gathering for the website and the guy who knows everything about everything not being consulted.

  9. You get the Klipsch surround for hauling off the TV. As you know some of those sets had a decent picture,PIP, and other nice features. Sometime it is the convergence needing adjusting. For the right person, a mancave treasure. See them at times under curb alerts, but not always with a surround setup. A friend thought he had done good finding a BATV for free. Found a person to help load onto his truck and at his storage unit, found a strong person to help him unload. He cracked the front cover of set. Oh well, need a lift gate, large dolly, and maybe 3 helpers. A hernia maker, if not careful. Cool!

  11. I actually admire the OP's persistence. That's what it takes to fix a problem like this. I went through a similar thing last fall that spanned about 2 weeks. I finally Killed all of the hum/noise from my system. (I had to, because I went to 114 db Horns). And the addition of 2 more Amps for Bi-amping. I dismantled my entire system, as well as all the electrical work behind the system. I routed one simple dedicated A/C line into a sub-panel. And then hooked all of my gear into 1 outlet via a much quieter Power Strip than I had before. I eliminated 100s of feet of interconnect by removing components that I never use any more (Tuners).... removed RCA interconnects to the TV in favor of Optical into the DAC. My system is as quiet as a mouse now, until those big Oris Horns Explode with a Full Orchestra. I never add anything to my system now, without a thorough evaluation of what noise I'm introducing. Don't give up. In the end it is worth it. You will succeed eventually.

  16. Yes the p39's are my next stop to be honest...I too at the age of about 12 got a radio shack 2 channel and built 1 speaker then hooked every speaker i could find to them 2 channel outputs i could get in there and jammed it. started with discman, tape player then got a magnavox cd player from a friend of mine, whos dad had it. I wish i still had that old gear just for nastalgia although then traded up for a sharp stereo w cd changer then bought a new magnavox shelf system then car radio then had a kid so traded for home theater. Had a jbl surround theater in a box also before but then was introduced to my fall back for prolly 10 years an hk mark25ii with a cv1&4 kg.5's....that led to trip after trip after trip for 10 years until i realized klipsch made more than just kg .5's lol

  17. Multi channel most certainly serves its purpose. And for so many years i was stuck with 5.1 running anything on it music to the end i thought. Also when i got on here and wondered around and got heresys for 1 i began to get the feel. Now i appreciate 2ch so much more and find so much within 2ch recordings

  18. Thank you for replys...i mean it..i love my old grado 225's i havnt even opened up the box to my brand new 225i's yet. let alone my other cans. 2 channel is so much more refined and true to the ears.

  19. most of the time I listen to Music in 2.2; there are some musical movies & mono movies that sound better in 2.2, as well; now if I had 7 La Scalas, I'd prolly go to Multi Channel Stereo...

  29. I don't think so. NO. Use the drivers that BFM recommends. The 15C would be best in a LaScala, Belle, or MWM, but not necessarily in a Khorn, which I have not modeled, but I suspect there would be a huge loss of the low end. Although it would improve the high end of the bass in a Khorn also, and would work ONLY IF you are willing to add a Tapped Horn sub of some sort to improve the bass you might be killing off in the process. But i do feel the 15C is a great all around Klipsch replacement. It also handles way more power for the DB freaks that like to put a kilowatt though a pair of Khorns. The 15C would then, effectively, help prevent house fires. My woofers rarely see more than a watt or two, since I want to protect my hearing until I arrive at my final destination.

  30. Well, two years ago I would not have understood. But now I do and I know my audio journey is jsut beginning. For me, 2 channel is the way to go to appreciate music. I am now digging up all my old records, restoring a Garrard Type A record player I used when I was a kid. Recently picked up an old stereo tube amp that just sounds awesome and I am looking to dedicate a room in the house just to 2 channel listening. Then I picked up a pair of KG 5.5s for my son as a birthday present and it was hard to let them go to his house. They sounded fantastic with the tube amp! For movies, TV of course, I really enjoy my 5.2 system.

  31. I think thats why a lot of us are here, though there is a lot of folks around that were sucked in by home theater, which now have 2 channel systems. I think there are a lot of people that don't set down and listen to music like we do, but they probably don't come around these parts as well. Yes put me down for good ole 2 channel listening.

  32. I too listen to 2 channel. I have a nice 7.1 and have never had the urge to add more than two fronts and a bass (and I have not even gotten to the bass yet). As for "old guys" never forget "OLD GUYS RULE."

  35. Its so frustrating these days being about 40 and how twisted the listening to music has become. I understand the dead spot many years ago and appreciate filling that with a center. I also hold dearly audio blurays and sacd truly it is a great standard to show the appeal of true surround sound music. Money is the factor i find that has saturated the world with music in surround sound. To actually walk in to a store so very few and so very far away with any 2 channel setups for demo then buy are basically obsolete. I do watch my movies in surround. Music on the other hand under all circumstances should be in 2 channel. Its so simple. And manufacturers that cater to the 2 channel truth music movement as i see it reserve such a premium to obtain the gear to enjoy 2 channel if you can find it at all. Its all on the internet by order and take a chance and send it back if its not what you want. And even at that point with a 2 or 3 way 2 channel system a subwoofer makes music happen in ways that need to be done. There are still not 2.1/2.2 preamps made to provide the clarity other than to use lfe which is a loss in so many cases of valuable tones of bass. I do not understand why surround sound has completely wrapped music into a non possibility of 2.1 or there about due to the surround sound movement. Its terrible

  40. I'll bet if you listened to them, that might make your decision. Good luck. Thank you. Im actually very content with all heresys atm though time will tell hahahahaahha hahahaHAHAHAhahahaHAHAHA lol When i was selling my 3rd pair of 901's they were version 5 in good shape i literally had had it. 901's as foot stools, used the stands as tables, stored in the closet they had no spot in my house at the time(nor ever again) i really could not find for them. a very good friend of mine who stores my gear or buys it including large shop air compressors 80 gallon ir is 1, anyhow finally he was in my house and they were right beside the door lol i did get a hundred out of him at that point and fine with that lol they were a real headache lol i can seriously only compare them to hemroids on your first day of work at a new job lol I have indeed been around super high end wealthy audiophiles that state how great they sound in front of their huge indoor stone wall with fireplace at the side. I know where 2 of the 3 pairs of 901's i have owned are at now(i believe) and im just sure of 1 thing...nothing can get them through my door ever again lol iv tried all bose speakers you name it the only ones i can stomach are the 301's and thinking about it i do not own 1 pair of them right now and really dont plan on it lol would maybe take 301's for free...would not pay $5 for them. Just too much fake plastic feel to bose cabs and their sounds are beyond hideous i cannot explain the disappointment bose has been in my life. As so many others including top dog/dollar paradigm. Paradigm subs hold a place in my heart although speakers/monitors not ever again and i have demoed paradigm prototype gear & owned the finest 7.1 complete setups from paradigm...just do not cut it although they are some fraction better than bose. Klipsch is so simple and inviting in life for home sound reproduction. Klipsch is my parking spot. The buck stops with klipsch lol cheers!

  43. Hmmm, I have recently became very intrigued. Why you asked, let me tell you a little story. I set out to give the old folded horn a.k.a. the Klipschorn, or LaScala a try. Now the only reason I was shooting for a LaScala was for a center so more so Klipschorns. When I received I don't think I ever got the chambers well sealed, along with the horns sealed to the corners. So the amount of effort I spent building the Jamboree I feel was well worth it. Last night I got to experience a folded horn for the first time. I don't know how familiar anyone is with the Jamboree, but I don't want to drown out Claudes thread. So now why am I intrigued, and why I am now here asking questions. Claude if you would like me to start another thread I will, but I started wondering if there is a easier way to go about something like the Jamboree. I know this, if I had the cash I would give the Jubilees a try. I could only imagine how they sound. Claude at one time didn't you have the MWMs, I wonder how 2 of your horns stacked would compare, I wonder how 2 LaScala bass bins stacked would sound. I have 4 k-33s I could use in 2 bass bins. So know I fell I am on a search for a easier horn that will give me the same or similar performance as the Jamboree. Now I have heard that its the K402 that puts the icing on the, so I can definitely say my next Klipsch purchase will be either the Jubillee bass bin or the K402 horn. I have heard the K402 is a wonderful horn, but I will say from my experience the EV Hp640 is a great sounding horn as well. The Ev hp640 produces a large sound, so I could only imagine how much larger the K402 is. I don't know if your type of bass horn will sound different from the type of a bass horn I have built. I would all most think that comparison would be similar to the MWM vs the Jubilee. All I know is I have moved to the dark side of things. If you take a look at the second to last pic of my Jamboree build in my sig, you will get a idea of the setup I am working on. I will say that were I was setting last night while demoing the Jamboree is pretty far away, but more then likely were I will be most of the time as it is where my bar will be located. If you look at the last pic, which is taken approx 26' way, this will be where my bar will be. But I will say even that far back the sounds is really deep and large. I haven't even equed anything as of yet, just set the crossover at 600hz and let it play. It sound really good, so I feel it may be tough to match that. But that is why I come to Claude he knows his stuff and has been down this road, and would like to get your advice. I guess I could build a pair and stack them to compare. What do you think.

  45. Junk would not want them, if there so delicate you have to suspend the wires off the floor with "special" risers and build them there own addition, no way. lol!...look up evolution acoustics mm3 or mm7 on youtube, and his system is on there...he does have a nice room, i think his back wall are all records ...yeah i'll still stick with klipsch for sure! i bet they sound like crap for home theater! I bet it sounds great. Reaaly nice room purpose built for 2 channel not theater. Obviously not best bang for the buck but nice none the less.

  48. If you ever get to Scotland, look for these: all whiskey distilleries have them. Next summer, I plan on going back over via the QM2. I intend on renting a BMW adventure bike and touring the highlands. Rather than being on a tour bus, I will be much more capable of visiting some small stills, and perhaps tasting some rare stock. In all, I tended to like the whiskey's on the western side including the islands to the eastern north sea side. However, it seemed like there were way way more distilleries on the east coast.
