    I just read this at the AVS forum that the new R-28Fs are awesome and compete with the older Klipschhons and Lascalas but actually sound as good as the RF-7IIs if you use the new sub! http://www.avsforum.com/forum/89-speakers/680426-klipsch-owner-thread-1268.html#post26851817 If you live in the DFW area and plan on jumping on these please feel free to PM me if you have LaScalas, Klipschhorns, or the older RF-7s!

    That could do it, but that's mild compared to some of your choices, some of the ones you posted would have the neighbors waking up thinking an apocalypse had started. A pic similar to your yard by 2016, your morning coffee and listening setup.

    Is this the 1st year Bose products have been utilized for coaching headphones, etc??? I've noticed Bose headphones being used by the coaching staff in 2 preseason games and I do not recall this previously. Great marketing - excellent product placement. I wonder if Bose pays for this advertising???

    I scored my first Yamaha, an MX-1000 and CX-600 with a pair of walnut Forte for $150. I sold the Yamaha stuff to fund my next Klipsch purchase. I missed it immediately. I snagged two MX-800 in boxes mint condition for $300ea. I sold one to a forum member to fund my another Klipsch purchase, miss that one too. Great vintage amps.

    I've been going on snowmobile trips in the UP since the early 90s. I like it up there, especially the 200 inches of annual snow!

    Bose has got to make money somewhere, i think the word is out on their speakers.

    Put it this way: Motorola paid about $40 Million per year before Bose reached a new agreement...

    very true…so true that in the early 1980s i had the idea for crapper shoes…disposable covers that you put on over your real shoes to disguise them. that way you don’t have to worry about being identified by your shoes when you go back to the office. Awesome idea!

    http://legendaryamps.com/latestpro.html No first hand experience with this model. Certainly looks to be built like a tank. I think it was originally intended for "on the road" commercial use. Sharp amp

    I don't blame you there, but you are apparently according to the evidence piling up a very important person just being modest., or a regular guy . Either way you should have told people when they looked at you funny, you haven't heard my music or see my videos or my clothing line, where have you been in a cave, and just walk off with an attitude ! That would keep them guessing. Like Bonnie Raitt song, "give them something to talk about", they will be telling there friends when they get back home and you will be 10 different people by then. I have seen a pic of you before, you could pull that off easily.

    Found someone local who has vintage HR(1)'s. Original owner. No upgrades. Explained my situation and very agreeable to let me compare to mine at my house this Tuesday. Should help sort things out. I believe I will be able to tell if the character of HR vs HSM is different. Sitting next to each other on the floor. We'll see & I'll post. Want to mention, if anyone has Gregg Allman's 'Just Before the Bullets Fly', listen to Slip Away. There is a SAX that plays an accent note thruout the lyrics. On my system now, doesn't stand out like before. I remember you could even hear the air and a distinct body in the repeating note. As for critical listening, taking that to mean sitting in the perfect spot, proper speaker placement, with everything just so. Nothing wrong with that at all. Used to do some of that back when. Today I enjoy simply filling the house. I guess you could say I'm listening critically but don't really do any excusive critical listening. Till Tuesday eve.

    I forget what are you using for a pre amp ? Or a better question is if you have a way to input through a headphone type jack you can use your phone for Pandora and Spotify, really easy and free. You would love the shear volume of types of music and very few commercials, maby every 25 songs a 15 sec commercial, great compared to FM. I use it through an old cracked face I4 phone my wife had replaced, It picks up wifi in the outside bar in the yard. I love it, I got a 15' really heavy cable with headphone jack on each end from monoprice for like $3 and can ley in the hammock and adjust the volume or change stations/songs, it's perfect. Inside the BR player does Pandora, the sound quality is better than you would think.

    Blowing that Pic up full size reveals some interesting looks on those kids. Almost None are smiling, most have the same haircut, most of those kids in the Pic could make big bucks in Hollywood looking like that. Boy you talk about hard times, you can see a hard life written all over their faces. I think i have a few of these floating around the hard drive somewhere.

    As long as you have 2 good corners, a pair of Belles will not be able to outperform a properly implemented pair of Khorns. It sounds like a recap of your Belles could improve them as well...........sharpen up the highs. Those old can caps are most definitely worn out and have attenuated your tweeter output. This is the first thing I would do to make the Belles have their original performance and sound like when they came from the factory. Very cheap and worth while update.

    The problem has existed for a long time. this solution is something that we've wanted for a very long time. Well within your right. However I should point out this was a company decision, not just something we goons in the marketing dept dreamed up one lazy afternoon between arm-wrestling the engineering department, napping, and playing tiddly-winks..

    Title: Beethoven - Piano Concertos 1-5, Daniel Barenboim (piano), Staatskapelle Berlin [blu-Ray video disc] (2009), $32.99 (Amazon, Dec. 2011) Review Pros: For anyone wishing to hear a front-row-center performance of a notable orchestra with a world class pianist playing all five Beethoven piano concertos, this disc will provide the best most realistic listening opportunity that I've heard, all 3 hours and 17 minutes worth. Getting your 5.1 array tuned up for DTS-HD (48 KHz) is important in the playback to achieve the sense of realism that is present in this recording. The 48 Khz PCM stereo audio track just cannot hold a candle to the full 5.1 DTS-HD MA version. The multi-camera Blu-Ray videos of the performances are also outstanding - better than actually being there in person. As far as the musicianship goes, these Beethoven piano concerto interpretations follow a non-US interpretative cycle that I've come to appreciate from Daniel Barenboim and the Staatskapelle Berlin (where he is both director and soloist for these performances). There is nothing left wanting from these outstanding interpretations IMHO, and the musicianship is second to no other great orchestra. The orchestra itself is of original historic size for Beethoven, which is somewhat smaller than most other big-name orchestras. I find that the performances benefit greatly from this more intimate setting, and the precision and clarity of sound to be outstanding references to judge other like recordings by. Cons: None. Equipment and room used for review: Jubilee/TAD TD-4002 fronts, Belle center (time-aligned), Cornwall surrounds, two SPUD tapped horn subs (front corners--forming false corners behind Jubilees), Onkyo PR-SC886 AVP in DTS-HD Master Audio mode (see profile). Rating: Very highly recommended (*****)
