  1. But when everything is right it's really good, and to think it's as old as it is and can be had used for less then many not even average sounding new speakers. The listening room in Hope at the factory is about the best I have ever heard them, it sounds like the whole back wall and side walls are the speaker.

  3. I don't doubt that, maby at one time but things like trucks and health problems tend to make people take a easier route. I am nothing like I once was, probably why I am still alive but it was not from being hit by a truck or health problems it was much more dangerous, marrage and kids. But I feel very lucky for them and to still be here around them. It's all I have really. It's going to be fine, nothing is permanent and all things pass, be happy for the problems you don't have, it's all we can do in the end.

  7. Wet here too. Took the grands ouuta Dodge City to a trampoline trap last night so they could jump and relieve grandpa of $100. Came back into town and there was water everywhere. Checked the gauge and had 2.5 inches. Got ANOTHER 1.5 last nite. Ohio, the heart of it all. hahahaha Day off today so gonna fire up the gear SOON!

  12. Hate to see that, water does so much damage. For hurricanes here people think of the wind, the wind is bad but the worst damage is from water and tidal surge. Water is very powerfull, it can remove almost anything. Hope the dam holds up.

  20. Follow up: Unruly shrubberies beheaded. Five mesquite trees pruned. Three of them savagely. Tomorrow I play the Lone Ranger: 🎼🎶To da dump, to da dump, to da dump, dump, dump!🎵 The tree you can’t see behind the white shed, was dealt with harshly. It had overgrown into two neighbors yards (fouling pool filters with the tiny leaves) and was threatening the shed. It has since learned better manners.

  24. In the 1980s, a new political movement had formed in Germany. It was the "green" as a political environmental party that already in the early 80s warned against the human influence of environmental destruction and its consequences. The "Greens" were called "politically incompetent" by the German political establishment. A party that wants to make the people believe that humans does not have nature under control? That was the time you´ve been in Bad Goedesberg. It is only in the last 2 decades that awareness of environmental policy has been firmly anchored in society, thanks to the Green Party. Ridiculous ! Now 40 years later , all the predictions of the entire political worldwide green movement have been confirmed , or does anyone still have doubts about climate change ? Canada with heat records and USA just experienced something similar, only with firestorms....

  27. Same here, because they say 80% this evening but sunny now also 80% for the next 3 days here. It has been a very wet winter/spring/summer, they say were 20'' above normal so far this year, and our average is 60'' a year.

  30. Welcome to the Forum! Well, the speakers you have are rated at a sensitivity of 96dB at 2.83v (1 watt into 8 Ohms) at 1 meter, in a typical room. To translate that to likely AES measurements and to be conservative, call it 92 dB, but that's at only 1 meter away. Say you are going to sit 12 to 15 feet away, still in that typical room. How many watts per channel would you need, with all channels operating at once (which taxes the receiver or amplifier's power supply more than if you have just 2 channels operating) to provide THX's standard 105 dB instantaneous peaks from the main channels, not counting the sound below 80 Hz that will be bled off to a self powered subwoofer? Your self powered subwoofer will need to produce clean instantaneous peaks of 112 to 115 dB. For your home theater receiver, to power all of your main speakers/channels, my guess is at least a real 80 watts per channel, 8 Ohms, maybe 40 to 20,000, at low distortion (less than ~~ 0.08%??) with ALL channels you will be using operating, to properly strain the amplifier section's power supply. No doubt some people will point out the truth that Klipsch speakers are very efficient (sensitive), but given the problem of fudged home theater receiver specs (such as specifying power output at 1K only, or at a more favorable impedance, or at a high distortion level, or using some other deceptive practice, etc. etc.), I think it is better to build in a safety factor. Do you have just the front left and front right speakers (the R-625FAs) or do you have a complete array of surround, center, and Atmos speakers? Any additional speakers you get should be of more or less similar sensitivity. So, 80 watts per channel, with specs as seen above. OR, if you have a rather live room, with lots of early reflections, THX acknowledges that the peak level above 80 Hz can be lower than 105 db, because early reflections, and many of them, fool the brain into thinking the sound is louder than it would measure with an SPL meter, so maybe 102 dB peaks will do. If so, since each reduction of 3 dB in peak volume halves the amount of amplifier power used, a 40 watt per channel amplifier might, conceivably, do. Most decent home theater receivers start at higher power levels, though (last time I checked). You will want an AVR (audio visual receiver) or AVP (audio visual processor, which requires power amp(s) to go with it) with a subwoofer output (or two for expansion), so you can run 1 or more subwoofers. Naturally, your electronics, must have enough channels to support the number of channels you will have, and be set up for Dolby Atmos. You'll need to check the current features of each contender. Decent brands, providing you avoid the pitfalls discussed above (check magazine reviews that have "bench checks" to confirm specs, or come very close to what you need) are: Marantz Denon NAD Rotel and, if you have the money, McIntosh Luxman N.B. Since the sound levels we have been talking about are instantaneous peaks, they are O.K., unless we are talking about continuously loud sound, like some Rock, Metal, and electronic music. Here is OSHA's take: Since music (and movies!) can have a lot of bass, most people would measure with dBC, "fast," to pick up the bass. EDIT: for some reason the OSHA chart didn't come through, so I'll try again:

  35. Just getting closer... Luxman R-117 is in with tech for a full refresh, can’t wait to get it back. Got an Outlaw 5000. 5 channel power amp for the rest of the channels and just picked up a Sony 55 inch OLED tv to finish things off. Now we have to do wiring, wall mount(s), furniture, painting and decorating. Budget is nearly depleted! Oh, and build Heresy clones with son-in-law to be.

  36. Okay so update I got back home and plugged the record player into my 600s. I am hearing the same really tweeters and the distortion. So that is being introduced by the record player. I am going to take my grounding plates tomorrow and test out the 280FAs again with proper Klipsch grounding plates and a digital source to take record player out of equation. Unfortunately the serial number checker is down on the klipsch site so no way to tell when they were bought. I will update tomorrow.

  39. And here's the rest of the Thrifstore bounty... 1) Neil Diamond live, double album... Can't miss with that one! 2) Two Herb Alpert albums... I was intrigued by the fact that the cover pictures were used from the same photoshoot. Same clothes, same people in the picture. Different songs. 3) Tom Jones Delilah? and Frank Sinatra's Christmas album. Wow!!! 4) Then 4 classical albums, of which 2 are particular interesting: those with Eugene Ormandy conducting. Isaac Stern's is mono, but a very convincing performance.

  40. Part one of this weeks bounty after a visit to the local thriftstore (I bought about 10 albums in total). These two I'm enjoying all day: 1) Jon and Vangelis, The Friends of Mr Cairo: a very big surprise for me was the song 'The State of Independence', which I only knew from the Donna Summer cover (?). This music is new to me and I'm pleasantly surprised! 2) Vangelis, Chariots of Fire: with the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games about to begin, a very appropriate title...

  41. The weather is going crazy! Where I live (green provinces) the sun is shining, while in the east of Belgium, severe flooding with people drowning and whole cities flooded. Many casualties, more than 5, wit many missing, in Germany over 20 casualties. Rain will keep falling until tomorrow morning. BBC News - Germany floods: At least 33 dead and dozens missing after record rain https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-57846200 Trying to be connected, without cynicism or sarcasm, put on Handel's Watermusic.

  43. I heard Dire Straits "Money For Nothing" today and it said the other F word w/o censorship. I just listened again to be sure and sure 'nuff Mark said ****** several times. And to top it off I went and checked out Country Joe and The Fish's Fish cheer from Woodstock. yep they said it several times...in fact 3 or 4 hundred thousand people screamed it. So my experience is not like yours.

  44. New Klipsch speakers are OK..........I have a pair of RP 260f's. One thing folks should be aware of is that these won't sound like the Heritage style or the older reference speakers. the new tweeter is the major difference. Some may like it fine others not so much. The new tweeters sound much more laid back to me. In some ways they're smoother in their presentation and in some ways they're not as dynamic. Trade off I guess. For most of my two channel listening I still prefer the old models, but that's just me.
