  1. Here's one of Jeff Beck with Buddy Guy on Buddy's 80th Birthday, at Meadowbrook Amphitheater, July 30, 2016. Buddy did his usual crowd walk with wireless transmitter, so he kept playing. I was in the last row an he literally stopped 6 feet away right behind my seat and looked right at me when I did this close up. Camera was a Sony A6000 with a 55-210 Kit lens. I also own a Sony Premium White 70-200 f/4 Pro Lens, but I'm always afraid they won't let me bring that since it looks "too professional. So I had the body and long, small, black kit lens in a small bag (since it's a variable aperture zoom, it's got a small front element and it doesn't look Professional. Obviously I got away with it, but they tend to frown on big, white lenses and make you take them back to the car.

  3. This is THE SINGLE MOST CONFUSING THREAD on any kind of Heresy that I have ever seen on this forum, and I have pretty much seen them all!! Hell I BUIILT Heresys for seven years and I am still confused with this tangled mess of erroneous inventions of nomenclatures dog-fighting each other for dominance of the Heresy pack!! This is totally filled with different sub-categories; sub-sub categories and now I am waiting on the sub-sub-sub categories to enter the picture. The worst thing about all these sub-type categories is that they DO NOT EVEN EXIST...they are inventions of FORUM MEMBERS! GEEZ!! And almost everybody involved in this thread is scrambling the eggs even more! BIRCH HERESY LESSSON !: a. First you had HDBR for Heresy Decorator(style) Birch, Raw (no stain or finish) THE CABINET CONSTRUCTION WAS PLYWOOD WITH OVERLAPPING BUTT JOINTS, an extremely strong box design b. then THE BUILD STYLE CHANGED FOR THE DROP-IN FRONTS, AND SO DID THE NOMENCLATURE: HBR=Heresy Birch Raw(no finish or stain applied) Same components inside as were in last HDBRs c. then, the HBR's went thru a transition period...with the components being mounted to the face of the motor-board, but the rear panel was still screwed-on, and the box build remained lap joints....for a time. (YOU DON"T WASTE PARTS WHICH HAVE ALREADY BEEN CUT!!) d. then, because they wanted to standardize the build for ALL the Heresys, they transitioned to basically the same thing used on the finely-veneered ones, for materials and construction using mitered joints. This was about (BUT NOT EXACTLY!!) the same time as the Heresy II made its appearance with its new name. This was also partly due to the drop in birch Heresy sales! The core of panels was MDF now. Rear panels were stapled from inside....just like on Heresy II's...so it was STILL an HBR, but now it was a mitered box made of MDF core having birch veneer on its outside. s fewer and fewer people ordered birch speakers, the HBR went to the category of "special-order item". So what is the REAL iSSUE and what do you HAVE TO KNOW?? And why is everybody, including me, being confused to death? Here is a hint...transitions ALMOST NEVER HAPPENED ALL AT ONCE, and they ALSO DIDN'T BEGIN AT THE START OF A CALENDAR YEAR! REMEMBER THAT! So, it is very likely that a PAIR of some kind of speaker MIGHT WELL Have been pulled out of inventory at a dealer, in the boxes, with consecutive serial numbers, but have two completely different builds EVEN THOUGH the speaker nomenclature was the same on both boxes!...and on the speaker labels! The isse of SAME or DIFFERENT labels...basically as above: Here is the deal...if the labels were hand written there is NO GUARANTEE that the nomenclature used is even correct!! Also, there was never a particular time that one label started and another ended, except when the labels became computer-generated! Here is why: more than one person in final assembly was labelling them...whatever the person had in their stack of labels is what went on the speakers they were labelling! This is b3ecause there was seldom a given date for label change-over...and if one person had more of the old labels to use up than another one had, they wouild just keep using them until they were out of them, THEN get some new ones! Some got the new ones before others got theirs because of that. WASTE WAS FROWNED UPON! I totally understand the frustration this produces for forum members with severe OCD issues! Just take an extra med and deal with it! Eventually you may realize that resistance is futile! You cannot control things which have already happened!

  4. The Ad says Klipschorns! - $5000 They look nice. Some of the features from the ad with my edits: These are the legendary Klipschorns! If you know what these are about then no description is necessary. [ Details are not my strength. ] These bad boys will bring a tear to your eye, crank your receiver or amp up to 100 and prepare for the loudest, cleanest sound you have ever heard from a speaker in your life. [ never pushed too hard ] I got these from the heavy metal band Savatage almost 20 years ago and they still pound like they did from day one. [ Adult owned in a smoke free and pet free home. Never stored outside. ] They were used as concert speakers so they are a little rough on the outside but they have the heart of a lion. [ Optional 'rustic touring' finish! ] Serious inquiries only please, come by and take a listen, and then take these awesome speakers home. 5000 or best! [ Priced to move quickly ] We need these gone asap. [ I have three more propane containers that I want to store in this spot. ]

  9. The effort to clear up floor space continues... Love these speakers but since going with Klipsch pro stuff in the home theater, I guess it's time to move them on to another forum member. I'll post the pics and answer any questions. The damage on the tops is from the person I bought them from (moving incident when roommates "helped load the truck"). I just put the glass tops on them as shown in the pics. It's tough for me to sell so I'll post now before I think about too much. $1100 Location: Louisville, KY.

  12. The horn cabs interior are 15x9.5" which fits the K510 snugly inside the frame. I had thought of making a single cabinet, but the K691 magnets are huge and a single cab would have been quite heavy. I finish nailed in some maple 1x2 blocks for flush mounting the K510s into the frame. Horn test fit into enclosure.. K691s off the horn to remove the bundled stand mounts. Drivers mounted into the open rear enclosure. Then sand down some supports for the drivers..

  13. I heard 25cups/day, even Mike will be happy... errrrr he was prolly the study subject taking a break. doing laundry and the "solar clothes drier" is keeping ahead of me. Been listening to "the system" in the doghouse all weekend. It really is junk when I run the same material thru the good stuff. Thank again @jimjimbo I'm not as productive with it... Just wanna sit and listen. Wife found a recipe... Cream cheese chiffon pie... EZ PZ. Fold whipped cream into softened cream cheese. Flavor with whatever sweetener you prefer and add a little fruit in/on. "Pour" [really too thick to pour] into a graham cracker crust. ..... and chill.

  16. Don't worry...it was nobody in particular! But, instead, It was just a "Charlie-Foxtrot" of everybody together! Each using invented terms! Here is the deal,:in an analogy. form:..Just because each can of pinto beans has a different label on it, doesn't mean people have to make a separate row in the pantry for each can! If they can all fit in the same row, then put them all iin the same rowt! THEY ARE ALL PINTO BEANS! LOL! Make sense?

  17. I was very surprised the first time I went to the Carribean, the main thing was I didn't think about the water temp. Thinking about it being hot and sunny standing on the beach I was surprised how cool the water was, which really felt great once you were in it, I have to get in fast, I can't just walk in slow, feels much cooler that way.

  18. It is BOTH of the above, but mostly a bragging society, IMO. I have a friend who does, in fact, tell us the price of everything new he has, right down to his signed Steinway grand piano! He reminds me of a character in Paul Goodman's surreal novel, The Empire City, in which Eliphaz has put price tags on his children -- literally. The tags dangle from their wrists. But, just in case it is largely a lack of sense, think of what would happen if we were to put someone who is very rich, with a great deal of gold trim in one of his several domiciles, but is a bit dim, in charge of an important entity ... In nano-steam, the water molecules are very, very small.

  21. Now going further back in time to the release date of 1956 The Artist would have been about 26 years old at the time If you are a saxophone player you would be playing this music 🎶 On the track You Don’t Know What Love Is — is probably the best ever tenor sax ballad ever recorded Be amazed if you chose to listen to this album — and I recommend you do Artist - Sonny Rollins ( with brilliant musicians supporting him ) Title - Saxophone Colossus

  29. Klipsch heroes, Need some help sealing my speakers. During some playing around in the HT forums, I discovered the back of one of my KG 4.5's vibrates/rattles at higher volume or bass. dtel recommended I post this here. I need to know the best way to fix/seal it. What type of glue to use, where to glue, and any advice someone more experienced may have for me. Also... I was able to get a pair of Synergy F3s for $80. Haven't really seen much conversation on them... or much caparisons of the against the KG 4.5. I did side by side and I think the F3 sounded better, but that might just mean my KG 4.5s need some TLC. Thank you!

  30. Even as Technical Editor of Rangefinder and Professional Photographer Magazines, I had a hard time convincing photographers that anything over 5 Megapixels was overkill. Then I met David Pogue, Tech. Editor of the New York Times, talking about the same thing in front of 1,000 Photographers at Photo Plus. He said he got about 78 Nasty Emails when he proved that on a 16x24" print (posting 3 of them on a window in NYC and asking people walking by if they could tell them apart........One was 16 Mpx resized DOWN to 8, then 5 (throwing away pixels), then interpolated back up. Not ONE person out of 50 could tell them apart. All printed by a Pro Lab, of course.

  35. We didn't use birch plywood for miter cuts...poplar lumber-core is what we used until MDF replaced it! That's part of the reason I think they are butt jointed birch plywood re-veneered...to look like mitered cabinets. They used the original rear panels with labels indicating birch raw...but that ain't what they are, ANYMORE. I did the same kind of thing with the oak LaScalas I built 20+ years ago...the front edge banding at the bottom corners MAKES the viewer THINK they are mitered, but underneath they actually have rabbeted joints at those corners, instead. The only way anybody can actually tell is looking at those joints from UNDER the speakers! Then the truth is known...Woodworking trickery! Rabbeted joints=25% more wood glue surface strength than miter...and 50% more than butt joint...stronger, tighter, and STIFFER! joinery! More structurally sound! ALSO reduces harmonic vibrations/flexing from sound waves passing thru the bass horn lens, without resorting to using thicker plywood in the construction to achieve the same results. Don't need to be an engineer to know those things! Wood-working experience is enough! LOL!

  41. I just rotated my Chorus II’s back into the main system so I could reiterate a qualified (more or less - lol) opinion. Had to drag my Peavey FH-1 bass bins with Kappa 15C woofers, K-510 horns with Faital Pro HF200 drivers, and one of Bob’s special crossovers to the other side of the room to do it... Conclusion - your fence sittin’ days are over, go get you some Chorus II’s ! I have seen other forum members post this here too “the only regrets I have had are about the ones I didn’t buy.” Heck, Emile will probably buy them from you if you don’t like ‘em, which would be about the same odds of winning the powerball lottery...

  46. Too hot to finish up trimming the bushes at the patio and around the perimeter...besides it's Sunday. So taking it easy and listening to Quadrophenia for it's entirety, had to change it up some. This will do that just fine. Haven't had this on since the sub got here. Had it set at 48hz, 10 higher than the Klipsch cover, bumped it up to 58 just for the heck of it..... might leave it here for a while. The CXA does a good job handing off the low signals to the sub. And it blends with the speakers, heck straight across from them it is coming from them!
