  1. In the past couple of years, my wife has bought some vinyl records for me, as a present. But this week, a first: she bought a vinyl (double) album for herself: Bart Peeters, De Kat Zat op de Krant. He's a gifted, multitalented person and hugely popular in the Dutch speaking part of Belgium. My wife's a fan, and she has most of his music, if not all, on CDs. So I asked her, why spinning vinyl this time? After pausing and reflecting somewhat, she said she liked the warmth of the sound, the tactile experience, the nostalgic, cosiness of it. I'm teasing her about the fact that she ordered a signed album and she secretely has a crush on him! 🤣

  2. I just want to add that this album sounds amazing: no hiss, no rumble, excellent bass and highs. It's kind of fantastic to listen to it through the Leben CS300 and 1972 Heresy speakers.

  4. First of all Tom, no one is asking the moderators to do anything today on a Saturday afternoon, I think you are misconstruing the conversation. Secondly, I’m pretty sure that we all know that they are volunteers and not paid employees. However, several of them spend quite a bit of time on this forum as is fairly obvious. Thirdly, common sense is all that is being asked for here so that the garage sale section of this forum is free from trash talk and negative commentary from those who most of the time have no serious intent on purchasing.

  6. +1 on the Chorus. La Scala might get louder and drums kick harder (while missing lower hz drums) but more defined music and deeper bass belong to the Chorus. On the sub. I would advise making your couch a sub and put cushions on it and quit whining.

  7. Those are VERY different speakers, upgrades or not. Just because one pair is fully horn loaded doesn't mean that you will favor them. Do yourself a favor and keep those Chorus II until you have a lot of seat time with the La scalas to see if they are right for you. They would never be right for me without subs, all the time. Subs can be a little tricky to pair with them as well depending on your listening preferences. Most here will will tell you to build an ENORMOUS (read VERY large, more than one, horn sub). That wouldn't work in my room (I know Claude would tell me to put them on the ceiling and to quite whining 😂) . Your results may vary, have fun. If you were closer, those CHORUS II would have been sold to me.

  8. Are you sure your subwoofer is in phase of running them with speakers full range? Have you played with positioning and phase to get it to sound better at your listening position and not disturb others? How about running it nearfield?

  9. I've got this for back road shenanigans. Although you'd be surprised at how well the Harley handles. Tuono chassis is magic. Bike has over 150K miles on it. One of the best I've ever owned and that's not a short list.

  10. I’m surprised that a single 12” sub can keep up with the output of a pair of lascalas. My vote is for a couple of 15” subs. That’ll git er done. 2nd choice is a good vinyl front end. Shakey

  12. Not that big a deal. They were cheap then. Kinda wish I had kept the damn thing honestly. And there are hundreds (maybe thousands?) of guys who raced them. Just got back from a ride. Wonderful early fall weather. Leaves are starting to change at 3K+ ft altitude.

  15. Knowing what I know about the precision and repeatability of modern design and productions techniques I'd say it was less of a concern that it used to be when PWK and the Associates had to select all the drivers coming in the door because tolerances were not as "tight" as as they are today, being 10-100 times better!

  17. I had an XR750 in the mid-late '90s and raced flat track for a long time. Never really made any money but learned how to go fast w/o hard braking. Learning to control a motorcycle while maintaining speed is truly an art form when done well. I've raced many disciplines. Pretty much everything 'cept hillclimb and ice. Still have my open class motocrossers. Don't bounce as well as I used to and the COST has me sidelined. I miss it dearly.

  20. Don't get me wrong they are very decent speakers I was happy with them until I was able to compare them head to head with the 75's-- once heard it cannot be unheard the larger and much higher quality horn driver is dramatically better IMO.

  21. The Klipsch RB 81 MK II enjoys cult status in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. It is still preferable to buy from stock than the successor models.The general crossover frequency is 60 hz if you want to incorporate the subwoofer R110 / 115 R. It is best to add an antimode to optimally integrate the subbass.

  22. I actually bought a pair brand new a few years back and thought they were ok similar to the previous models RB-35 / RB-5's. I ended up finding a good deal on a pair of RB-75's and they were head and shoulders above the 81's which got sold almost right away the difference was that big. Of course I didn't stop there ending up finding a match for my RC-7 center speaker and used those as a stereo pair vertically just rotated the horn and they sounded much fuller than the 75's, more "tower-like." My advice since that whole experience is find a pair of RC-7's if looking for a bookshelf speaker they're just slightly taller than the 75's with an extra 8" woofer. I've never heard the RP-600's myself and have been curious about them with all the rave reviews out there, might pick a pair up and give them a test drive soon. My brother is selling his house and down-sizing so he gave me back my old KLF-30's and told me to find him something smaller for his new place, thinking the 600's and a small sub might fit the bill.

  23. I agree totally unless you find a really good deal on a 5 or 7 channel. The used market is your friend where more horsepower is cheap. Not sure of your location but here is a great suggestion for little $$$. https://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649768893-outlaw-audio-7125-7-ch-amplifier/ Bill

  26. I'd say you've got a lot of work to do on controlling your reverberation times (RTs) unless you have an extremely large listening room. I'd aim for at least reducing the RT30 values to below 1 ms, with 0.4-0.5 ms being much more workable. I''d make sure that the curve smoothing is set to "psychoacoustic" before trying to EQ anything. Overall, the closer you can get the SPL response to plus/minus 3 db using psychoacoustic smoothing, the better it will sound. Plus/minus 2 dB is even better. I recommend using REW's EQ facility to do this. It looks like the gain of the bass bin is set too low, and you're trying to boost the 100 Hz notch in response. I'd instead recommend boosting the overall bass bin channel, then attenuate the 200-500 Hz band, then boost the 70-130 Hz portion using no more than 3-4 dB. That way, you'll be avoiding using too much PEQ gain, which can cause internal issues with a DSP crossover. Chris

  28. Not if you want to use them for Dolby Atmos decodes, in which case RS7 is certainly not better. Di-pole is a big No-No. Direct radiating speakers need only apply. Keep your facts straight when posting these sort of blanket statements. Try offering some references to show you know what you are talking about. Page 6 reads: Note: Dipole surround speakers are not recommended for use for Dolby Atmos playback. https://www.dolby.com/siteassets/technologies/dolby-atmos/atmos-installation-guidelines-121318_r3.1.pdf

  29. Got some more in from my splurge earlier last month. Had to get some that weren't KC. Liked this guy's tunes since... since he covered "Born Under a Bad Sign" that and a couple others from Crash & Burn were on the list at that exemplary FM 95Q The Album Station. There is another, a # 2 I'll keep my eyes peeled for. Heck he even covers a UFO tune here... maybe theirs was a cover too!

  33. When I reconed some JBL D130's, I used a kit from Simply Speakers and in the kit was a small bottle of polyvinyl acetate and it was used to seal (dope) the outer surround. Worked perfect and sealed the surround.

  43. DSP is amazing in what it can do, but it's just as good at screwing things up until you go pretty deep into that rabbit hole. : ) In the mean time, I'm convinced that the Heresy IV didn't see the light of day until the Chief and crew felt they had the best result possible for its expected application. Still, you can almost always improve things due to your specific acoustic setting*, tastes, recordings, hearing ability, etc., but I think you're wise to initially take a gradual approach with something like the broad tone control offered by the EQ570. I've never used one of those things, but I trust the company that made it and expect that it will work well. The manual generally specs the EQ offered and I can tell that the designer knew what he was doing. I just ordered one through Amazon since I can return it. It's due to me Monday and I'll post full measurements on it by Tuesday. In the mean time, the guy that's probably measured the Heresy IV more than anyone else outside of Klipsch posted a "spinorama" of it a few days ago. This form of analysis is the brain-child of Floyd Toole and and requires a long trip down the rabbit hole to fully appreciate, but you can just concentrate on the "estimated in-room response" plot to see that a broad (low-Q) reduction around 2kHz, such as the EQ570 provides, may be just what the doctor ordered. God bless you and your precious family - Langston * In live music performance there is absolutely nothing as effective in making an instrument sound good as mic selection and placement. IMO, placement is the most important of the two. There's no EQ or effects or mix (relative level) adjustment in the world that can do what placing the mic in the right spot will do. The mirror image of this is loudspeaker placement within your room. Do that first when your wife isn't home so you can move the furniture as needed. Then when she gets home, catch her before she sees the room and tell her that you have something terrible to confess. When you're both seated, tell her you cheated on her - but very quickly (before you die) correct it and tell her the only thing that really happened was some stuff got moved around in the room with the loudspeakers, "and isn't that way better?!" : )

  48. Married 33 years, wife passed away. I spent a few months drinking too much. Eventually, met some ladies online. Seriously, just wanted to chat... finally met the woman who became my wife. She was from the Philippines, teaching English at a uni in China. We just had fun chatting, like 3-4 hrs a day. After a couple months, she said she was going home to get her passport renewed. I told her I would fly over and meet her face to face and see if we thought we should continue. Met some of her family... 12 brothers and sisters, parents. Traveled to visit each other over the next 3 1/2 years... China, Ireland. Got married in 2010, when she moved here. Easy? Two adults set in their ways... worth every bit of the work.
