    +1 on the Sansui. Using a Sansui AU7700 as a pre for an updated Sansui BA2000 for the MCM. Have other Sansui going with other systems.

    A band I wouldn't have given the time of day because I didn't care for there name, but I watched them on Youtube and learned of their involvement with our troops, our veterans and donating the proceeds of one of their vids to the Gary Sinise Foundation for first responders.

    Yup the physical impact of the La Scala was better but the fidelity of the CW4 was stellar. If I had to choose between the two the CW4 would easily win.

    My first hi fidelity stereo was Sansui separates back in like 1975. AU-7700 was my integrated amp. My tuner was TU-5500 maybe? The Sansui separates were amazing back then, and still sought out and prized by many even today. A couple years later I was driving a Peavey CS-800 professional amp off the Sansui AU-7700 pre amp outputs. To Peavey SP-1 loudspeakers in my LR 400 watts per channel with these little red clipping indicator lights. The Peavey amp weighed like 75 lbs alone. Fighting acoustic feedback to my Sony turntable was the biggest culprit. Used to close the plastic dust cover and put pillows on and around the turntable, on the floor. We were young and foolish, and smoking reefer madness.

    I want to share my experiences, many amps came to my room and after a while they went ..... only Sansui remained.

    Wednesday-Friday discount as I have a rare free weekend so hoping to pack it up now not later. Side note USAudiomart buyers are idiots $2,200 local pick up, $2,350 shipped Lower 48 states. 2 or 3 very heavy boxes if shipping is less than 150 I'll refund you the difference if it is more I'll eat it. I just shipped 2 amps and a preamp to N.C. and it was over $70, insured.

    I own a PL Evo 400 Integrated and I am totally blown away by how good it sounds in my system. Worth every penny I paid for it and then some. I have found my forever Amp.

    Surprising that you would say to run your speakers as "Small" with a sub. Why buy a $6600.00 K-horn to run it as a small? JJK

    As I build a lot of DIY with high end parts, I don't see anything there that would make me think he is trying to recoup parts cost for that price. Additionally you can state exaggerated sound claims but don't state bogus specs. That just points out that you are looking to dump the items onto someone who is not knowledgeable in the subject.

    If your cable runs are many meters then balanced is surely the way to go. 1 or 2 meters with your gear, you might discern a difference. Worth an extra couple hundred dollars? For me, no.

    Yes, at low volume, the two hypothetical amps should sound the same, providing they are equal in other ways. Amplifier power is not the salient variable at low volume. A conservative guess is that your 95 watts per channel AVR should push your main (right front and left front) speakers to about 107 dB peak at about 12-13 feet away in a typical room. Since the standard peak of peaks ("full scale") that Dolby, THX, SMPTE, AES, and the other royalty of the cinema world expect you to provide to your main speakers is 105 dB, you are probably O.K. ... BUT, if you have all of your channels, including surrounds, pumping away at full tilt, your AVR probably cannot deliver 95 watts to each of your channels. Few, if any, manufacturers specify their AVRs with all channels operating, which they really should do. IMO, though, you should be able to squeak by, since you have a couple of dB to spare. Your canter channel speaker may or may not need more power, because it may or may not be of lower sensitivity. SVS rates it at a sensitivity of 86 dB/2.83v/1meter in "full space." AES assumes they rate it 1/2 space (backed against a large flat surface) so I'm guessing that would provide another 3 dB of sensitivity, making it really 89dB/2.83v/1m. Klipsch rates your main speakers at 98 db/2.83v/1m in a typical listening room, which translates to 94 dB/2.83v/1m in 1/2 space (according to a Klipsch engineer). That's the figure I used to calculate your available Sound Pressure Level (SPL or volume). If your listening room is neither dead nor live acoustically, that probably provides you with a fudge factor of 4 dB. Your subwoofer is another matter -- do you have one? You really should. Almost all of them (name brands) are self powered with an appropriate sized amplifier built in. The overlords of cinema feel that your sub should be able to hit 115 dB SPL. Run all of your main speakers as "SMALL" to avoid multipath distortion; this will also give you more "headroom" -- spare power from your AVR -- since there won't be a demand put on it for deep bass, which is power hungry. A speaker's "power rating" (in your case, 150 RMS for RF 82 IIs) is not very useful. The idea that your amp should be more powerful than the "power rating" of your speakers is just a rule of the thumb (not quite as hideous as the origin of that term). Paul Klipsch was once asked what it meant; he replied, "Probably not much."

    I have plenty of bait. Besides he needs to get my future build double horn lens replacement for those delicate K-77's he has sitting up there.

    That's a fact. My MCM are in a ~ 20' x 24' room. I might peak at 1/2 a watt when I am busy and want to hear it. 1 full watt and I am rocking pretty good. 10 watts RMS peaking at whatever it might be is as loud as a rock concert. I have never turned anything that I own all the way to 10, and mine go to 11. FACT ^ It was too funny to see my name on the front of your daughter's car. Please tell her thanks again for giving me the dealer's plate.

    In addition, I thing we should get a running list together of speakers and equipment that will be there. The list is getting long and I'm not 100% sure of all the gear and what might be needed. Maybe a list on the same post of the attendee list that can be updated. Open to suggestions, unless they are from Jim.

    Thanks river. If I'm not mistaken I think I got an emotiva amp from you years ago. I'm loving this klipsch sub so far...well actually all of it. Now to bring back the glory days and upgrade my receiver and find an amp.

    Correct! You certainly don't want the center (of the AMT) to center (of the mid-bass/bass driver) distance to exceed the wavelength at the crossover frequency. Doing so will likely result in severe lobbing/cancellation. As an example, if you are crossing at 800hz, you don't want the center to center distance between the AMT and the mid-bass driver to exceed 43 cm, or approximately 17" (wavelength of 800hz). Once I get my AMTs, I plan of putting them directly on top of a 12" driver and will plan on crossing the drivers somewhere between 1200 - 1600 hz.

    Think I understand where they're coming from now. That "Wrong Side of Heaven" is powerful, moving and way more meaningful than what I was expecting this morning. Literally the opposite of what made me turn off the boob-tube a while ago. Thanks & "Rock On" brother! *Those kids are freakin' great!

    I had the 6504's installed in a wall for several years as the rear channels for a 7.1 system. I then needed to replace my main speakers and not having much money laying around I decided to try converting the 6504's into main speakers. I wasn't expecting much but wow, what a nice set of speakers. Put in the right enclosure they can easily compete with more expensive mains after listening to several. I think the reason is because a lot of effort is put into providing deep bass for the mains. This is not easy to do and they compromise on the mid range and tweeter. But I read some articles touting that no matter what mains you have, you should always cross them over at 80 hz with the sub woofer to do all the heavy work. Providing of course you have a sub that can serve double duty. I have one of the Definitive Technology Trinity subs (no longer made), what a beast .. 2000 watts full power at 10Hz. So this sub can easily handle all of the LFE work and the mains. The 6504's are 4 ohms and when I first put them on my Integra amp, they really suffered to perform. I then purchased an Anthem MCA 225 and it easily drives 4 ohms with lots of reserve power for the 6504's. The best demonstration of this is to play a complex orchestral piece and at high volume listen to how clear and separate all of the instruments are during a crescendo .. it is amazing. Craig

    Unless you plan on playing music really loud, or in a really big space, you'll be fine. I you notice your volume setting is maxed out most of the time, you should look for a stronger amplifier.

    I've had a full HT setup including THX Ultra speakers and ended up moving to RF7 mains and RC7. That's it. They go fairly low and sound full as is, never felt that I needed a sub with them. Almost any receiver can drive them, but something decent is still recommended. So, no - not a crazy idea.

    congrats!!!! the dream becomes reality I can relate to a lot of your last post, Brenda. Particularly the acquisition of legal tender and the part about those who passed before... Enjoy them vigorously ... as I'm sure your neighbors will.
