    Early last year I was nearing the end of a multi-year, multi-state work assignment that had taken me to a very remote area of West Virginia south of Charleston. I had to interview people in their homes for litigation. My partner and I could not find one house. Wasn't on the street map. Then we saw it up at the end of a narrow single lane gravel road with a panoramic view of the Kanawha River. We made it up and were greeted by a rather articulate gent who invited us in. Big city retiree who had moved back home. And the first thing I saw inside were the Khorns in his den. Said he had had them for years and would not move back home without them. We wrapped things up and our project is now over. Delivering those speakers up there without a nick or scratch was a huge undertaking. Now that I'm a new H3WO owner, on a lesser scale, I can understand. We are everywhere.

    The CW1526CF can be used in a Chorus II but is not rated at the amount of power the original woofer is. Another consideration is whether or not it will even fit. The cast aluminum frame is 1/8 larger in diameter than the steel frame original woofer. In some cases the cast frame will fit in the recess and in some cases will not fit. Bob Crites

    It is a tricky subject for sure. Distortion is already recorded into any recording for playback, so additional amp distortion does exactly what? Even harmonic distortion is generally agreed to be more pleasing but many would say it is just additional coloration. Clearly a certain absence of distortion is desirable in an amp but as you say there can be a cut off where less is well, less. People have differing experience levels regarding what live sounds like, further compounding their preferences. Add to that the recent introduction (historically) of electrically amplified instrumentation and even voices which have lots of purposefully distorted sound played live, and it is no wonder there is a lot of confusion and differing opinion and preference.

    Nice here today.....73 and sunny. Washed the Bubble and walked the Jakester before 10am. Then over to my house to listen to the Spatials and do some chores. Third Evan Williams Small Batch. Firing up LF's Green Egg to cook some fillets, asparagus, and mushrooms. Then an early night for me. Life in the slow lane.......

    This would be for those on a tight budget, or for a small second system. For $200, I think it would surprise a lot of folks. 60 wpc, 80 wpc at 4 ohms. Smart design, good parts. Two inputs and a nice attenuator. Smooth, open - but does sound better with a preamp in front of it. https://www.parts-express.com/topping-tp60-t-amp-tripath-ta2022-50wpc-(80wpc-4-ohm)-mini-amplifier--310-326

    So I have been thinking about Heresy III as center for my recent Forte III purchase. I was playing around with Forte III as center (used RP160M’s as left right temporarily and AB compared RP250C with Forte III. Was watching Pitch Perfect 3 with my 5 year old daughter, replaying a few scenes. I asked her which sounded better and she said “the big speaker.” I asked why. She thought about it for a couple of seconds and replied, “It just sounds live.” I was floored. Mission accomplished Mr. PWK!

    No offense meant but I, for one, am very glad that my SE amps do not sound like solid state amps.

    So if you are a believer in the house sound and signature sound concept of amplifier selection, what do you think of this very possible theoretical conversation between a customer and a salesperson at an Audio store. What would you tell the customer?? Yes, this is a straw man, but it's not an unlikely scenario. Cus: “Wow, there are a lot of amplifiers in this room - why so many choices? is it just a difference in how powerful they are?” SP: “No, it's because they all have their own sound!” Cus: “Wow, so if I hooked one up after you leave the room could you tell me which is playing without looking when you came back in? SP: “Well, yes, but it would take time - could be hours, maybe days before the amp would reveal itself through its unique signature and feel. I would know which because each differs in how it connects me emotionally with the music.” Cus: “You mean, you couldn’t just tell me now? SP: “No, because your question makes me too uneasy to be receptive to the amps unique signature.” Cus: "Wow... and what about Cd players? Those too?? SP: "Yes, those too AND all of your speaker cables and interconnects as well. ..They all have their own signature. And they all could take a while to reveal their unique strengths to you." I think most beginners looking for a sound system to enjoy with their existing cd and music file collection could very likely think, “Ok, that seems nutty…I think I’ll just go look at a Bose SoundDeck or a Sonos system.”

    Churchill’s affinity for drinking dated back to when he was a 25-year-old correspondent covering the Boer War for the Morning Postin 1899. When he was sent out to the front line, he took 36 bottles of wine, 18 bottles of aged scotch, and six bottles of vintage brandy with him. He was once quoted as saying, “When I was younger I made it a rule never to take strong drink before lunch. It is now my rule never to do so before breakfast.”

    I actually agree with this. Audible "deltas" are a matter of degree, which is much greater in speakers and rooms than in modern electronics, but the terms: Synergy and Diminishing Returns play a part too, also called $$$$. Either way, HORNS RULE.

    Me too, since it's partly my design. I love spending other people's money on the quest for better bass, which costs more drivers or more lumber and cubic feet or air space to do right! Big Horns Rule! (a redundant statement).

    Totally real. Did you see the montage of all the doinks (technical Madden term) for them this season? Then the always an idiot Collinsworth says after they show it, "what are the odds?" Well duh, after the montage most would say the odds were pretty good for it to happen again.

    I see no reason to justify locking this thread and I believe censoring should be the absolute last resort...!!!! IMHO it’s better to let all sides state their opinions and offer their evidence and facts of why they have formed their opinion. Then everyone can decide for themselves which side of the debate they fall on. 🙂 If you are tired of the thread just walk away and spend your time doing something that would make you happy. Long ago I protested the shutting down and editing threads instead of dealing directly with the offenders of the forum rules and I still believe this. It is by a persons actions and thoughts revealed in time that will help expose the truth and any motives behind what we do. If you want this thread to stop quit participating and it will die a natural death. Just ask yourself if you would like your opinions to be buried because someone else disagrees and then you might sence the danger in such actions and why it should be a last resort...! miketn

    I just wanted to show one of the places we use to go see concerts, it was a great place, a riverboat. It would sail up and down the river as the concert went on, unless it was really foggy. If it was foggy they would just pick up the ramps and stay tied to the dock but still no getting off or on. It was cheap to see a show usually between $8-$10 depending on who was playing. If you scroll down the page in the link there is a complete list of everyone who played on the President, a great place to see a show. http://jerrygarciasbrokendownpalaces.blogspot.com/2012/05/riverboat-president-spanish-wharf-new.html

    As the story goes, she made the remark, “You, Mr Churchill, are drunk.” Churchill’s alleged response? “My dear, you are ugly, and what’s more, you are disgustingly ugly. But tomorrow I shall be sober and you will still be disgustingly ugly.” Hahahha

    A noble comment, nonetheless. The best recording I own is on SACD, which I heard originally on Wilson Speakers worth $125,000 (not as good as my Jubilees or Danleys with subs in my room, but a really good recording). It's the original recording and the synergy of electronics, speakers and ROOM Acoustics that make all the difference, but it starts with the quality of the Recording and NOT the media it's on. Otherwise, y'all are barking up the wrong tree.

    Sorry, I don’t understand your point. If it helps to clarify my opinion, I’ll offer newbies the same advice regarding the “hi-res controversy” that I offered regarding the “amplifier controversy”: listen for yourself and decide for yourself.

    I think this thread tops anything that could have been fathomed in a hypothetical Klipsch political section and there is a stark resemblance in the threads essence. Anywho, no matter what side of the line in the sand you're on, Ignorance can be bliss and its demonstrated all around us. Im certainly glad I have a few traits of it here and there.

    Last year I upgraded my center to a Klipsch RP450C. I had been using a M-L SLM surface mount as my center and it just couldn't keep up with my Heresys. The RP proved to be a much better choice at getting the sound field corrected. The system needed a center with an enclosure. The M-L SLM had issues with cone crash and could not provide an adequate sound field.

    Well Dean others are participating in this thread and it appears to me they are offering good insight as well so why should they be shutdown just because others don’t seem to be able to walk away and ignore the thread if it frustrates them? miketn

    Hey... While were at it crossovers equalize I try and use as little in the signal path as possible... But one thing I demand is being able to control tone to my liking. As long as imaging ,resolution, grain are not affected... Who cares.
