    From Matt Sommers, Creative Director and Renaissance Man: Dear Klipsch Family and Friends, We are excited to share the new ‘Keepers of the Sound’ video series, which honors audio pioneer and company founder Paul W. Klipsch, and celebrates pioneers of all crafts — spotlighting those who’ve stayed true to a vision of preserving their rich heritage, while adapting to today’s tech-driven world. These pioneers give insights into how listening to music through Klipsch speakers drives their spirit and endeavors. The first installment in the video series features legendary American musician, singer-songwriter, and producerButch Walker, as he creates music for his new album using Klipsch headphones and speakers in the recording studio and playback listening area. Walker has performed on, written and produced albums for artists including Taylor Swift, Train, Pink, Avril Lavigne, Keith Urban, Katy Perry, The Struts, Panic! At the Disco, Pete Yorn, Harry Connick Jr., Weezer, Fall Out Boy, and many more. As a friend of Klipsch, and supporter of pioneering craftsmen in pursuit of a better, more powerful and emotional listening experience, please help us promote this video and Butch Walker by posting or sharing it on your social media platforms. SHARE or REPOST from the Klipsch Social Media Channels on Wednesday, September 19. Here is a list of our properties.

    I thought we should all send a message - Hey Tarheel, then 4265 messages would overload the server, and lock up the east coast, and then the internet would begin a search for Chuck, Hey, have you seen this guy ? then stuff would be regular after he replied.... no strange post's... maybe lol

    SCHIIIIIIIT! I'm pretty much amazed at what happened today so far. Mani delivered by FedEx's driver who lugged the PrimaLuna in for me. Promised him lighter days then and so far so good. Ha! 30 minutes later (if that) I was up and running. Dipsticks set right? Check! Cables right? Check! Power ON before hitting the amp? Check! All plugged in? Check! Dust cover off? Check! OK now what in the H@&L do I play? I seriously just STOOD there looking TOTALLY stupid! My first system was in the late 60's or so and I ran ESS Heil speakers (Beatles something), early 80's it was Infinity Reference Standards (The Wall was just released), now FINALLY followed my first love La Scala's and PrimaLuna tubes? Yea, ok... They ALL say tubes are the Schiit's so let's see... Walked over and pulled the FIRST album that laid there calling my name on top of the pile I've been sorting... Don Henly "Building the Perfect Beast" cause I thought Sunset Grill should sound great... Dropped the Karma cartridge on the Linn, turned up the volume and flopped on the couches sweet spot... Yea, sports fans the old guys jaw totally dropped! One side was enough so then grabbed Phil Collins, amazed then it was time to break out the #1 LP on the planet forever... No not Moby Grape but Floyd's Dark Side... Just finished a Magical Mystery Tour, which it has been... Now it's Tedeschi Trucks "Revelator" side 1 w/"Midnite in Harlem" on it...Don't worry @Deang I'm being good to those sweet networks you built me. You tolerated my insanity so well and I've honestly tried to be a good listener! lolol Good God guys I don't know where to start with the Thank You's! Blessed to call you ALL my friends! BTW Susan Tedeschi has a voice.... Yay me and Thank You ALL again!

    Sure I don't know you? Had the same set up then went ALL SAE w/the biggest and bestest they had. Arnie cut me a deal at his cost! The dealer he shipped them to was having a litter of puppies mumbling about what I paid for all that stuff. Inside I was rollin. Funnier when he said he'd send his best man 200 miles to do the complete install. Said he was told it was to be properly set up! Dude wound up spending the night at my place and got to work about noon the next day! hahahahaha Trust me the system DOES need a dust and polish... That Linn has NEVER looked like that! Think I'll spray paint the Mani purple just for giggles or maybe pink for Gia! lolol

    === nothing I got but an interesting sighting as we were navigating at around 11000 feet in Rocky Mtn. National Park. You know in automobiles magazines how they show “spy” photos of new vehicles all camouflaged to be unrecognizable - heading down the mountain I see what I believe to be a pick up truck and wonder what the helll it has all over the front end, then see the entire truck is covered in different materials, then comes a second and third one. Must have been pre-production mules doing high altitude testing. Kinda cool —

    I do have to say, just from my experience and I hope it was the odd case. After running a freezer on a generator, later after a month or so it died, coincidence or not I don't know ? I do know it was a 5500-7500 peak generator, I WAS TOLD ... these types of generators are a not great for steady clean power, a whole house generator is much better, it has something with how the power is regulated and kept even. I will not get the whole house thing, just not interested or would want to pay for one and I would have to get a good size propane tank to go with it. I have no idea if this is true but have heard it before...........I hope you have much better luck than we did years ago, and the freezer was all that was on the generator.

    On the subject of addiction, it's all OK as long as their views mesh with your own. Only opponents get to be skewered for being human. There have arisen, on occasion however, a select few who deserve to be skewered for being effing morons.

    Hahaha whoa now you are talking double for the same... I am speaking to this day and age...... We can argue all day long but I hesitate to do so with anyone that thinks 40 years of engineering has brought nothing to the table for the same price as the prime "vintage" gear. Yeah from that comment you can figure out how old I am. You buy an old piece of gear and revamp it and you are EASILY into a quality piece of modern gear. Just my 2 cents. I know I'll be burned at the steak for it but I'm ready.

    I'm not sure. I wouldn't go back to the tube days like many, but I consider my sunfire amp and preamp modern, even if they are close to 20 years old. I like bourbon too. I'm pretty sure I am not descended from the Bourbons, but several generations back there may be a connection. Were they anywhere near Cognac?

    A pirate was standing dockside with his peg leg and hook where his hand should be and an eye patch over his empty eye socket. A ruffian approached and said: Mr Pirate, Mr. :Pirate, how did you get that peg leg? The pirate says: I was swimming in the sea and a shark came along and bit off me foot. The sawbones gave me this peg leg. The ruffian says: Mr. Pirate Mr. Pirate, how did you get that hook on your arm? The pirate says: I was repelling a boarding party and a skirvy dog hacked off me hand. The sawbones gave me this hook. The ruffian says: Mr. Pirate, Mr. Pirate, how did you lose your eye? The pirate says: I was looking up to the yardarms and bird pooped in me eye. The ruffian says: That’s gross but bird poop wouldn’t do too much damage to your eye. The pirate says: True. But it was the first day with me hook. (From Tom and Ray.)

    Did not imply it was the stores fault. I fully understand how the process works I was responsible for the deliveries that keeps the doors open. I agree That each person is supposed to be responsible for ones self. (Thats why my freezers are full, and I now have a generator to run them in a time of need) I also get to help some less fortunate than me with food.

    1) use as intended 2) list at 2 or 3 times what you paid on various sites and make a buck 3) if you have no reason to keep pass along to forum brothers at cost and enjoy karma

    Fish, just for clarification for those that might be interested....the front facing speaker is actually the passive driver (without the magnet). Best wishes with your sale sir.

    8" the horns are HUGE! The detail and soundstage is wonderful, but like my Khorns they don't hide any flaws. On the fence about which to keep. I'll get a picture with something next to them for reference.

    Thanks Gary, It sounds really nice too! Too bad, it's the last version of a great product.
