  6. Hi, Five CDs in small light cardboard sleeves imitating LPs, but the music is great for only 15€ (about 15$ at home) if you can find them: a tip, treat yourself. Kevin Ayers' first 5 solo records after Soft Machine. There are great musicians with him: Robert Wyatt, Mick Ratledge, Lol Coxhill, Mick Oldfield, Hug Hopper, David Bedford... and many more

  8. Hi, Yes, Italian sofa is an Italian-made piece of furniture made by hand by craftsmen, it is 22 years old from the year 2000, so it has a little patina. But it's still comfortable, the leather is solid and beautiful, yes it's buffalo leather. Arrrrggg ! I don't have a photo where you can see it in full and here it's the night, just a few discs on it, not CDs sorry, but vinyls: MicroMara will like this German group, one of the best

  17. I’ve been enjoying the Alesis power amp, bit a naked rack amp looks pretty janky sitting on the credenza, so Itook some mahogany I had leftover from a deck project and made a case for it. I still need to get some grill material for the top, but it looks better than before. (The center channel speaker is well aft of the vent area)

  18. Now lets look at the RB-5 Horns On the left is the K-124-K Horn used in the RB-5 II On the right is the K-105-K Horn used in the RB-5 Interesting that the only difference i can see visually is the way the ribbing of the horn casting is formed. Looking at them at first glance I would expect the K-124-K horn casting with the extra bracing runs branching off the main ribs (in red) would sound more subdued or muted that the K-105-K casting with its single deep ribs (in yellow). The surprise was after tapping both horns with the handle of my screw driver revealed that the K-105-K horn was the more muted or dead sounding. Not very hi-tech and it would not reveal what happed at higher frequencys. I still found it interesting. Anyway... I had never run across a comparison of the two horn structures so I thought I would post the pictures for discussion.

  19. I indeed am here on the forum, and I indeed use in my main system an amazing 2A3 PP amp made by our favorite Mining Geologist! (is that the right Profession?). I wish he had kept in touch here more often, many Klipsch forum members have bought or built his designs and we all enjoy the music! warm regards from sunny el salvador, Tony

  20. My friend and Klipsch fanatic, Roger Gordon, sent these Pro La Scala's to convert to home speakers. Sadly, he passed away before they were completed. I have finished them and will be sending them to his wife and daughter. I hope they feel a bit of his presence when listening to them and appreciate their beauty, as I know Roger would.

  21. Hi guys I can get a quite good deal for a pair of Klipsch LaScala AL5 (to feed a 3200sqf space) and I have started to look into amplifiers for them. The LaScala seller wants me to get a costly tube amplifier (after him it is the only proper way to feed the laScalas). I'm not an audophile and I will use exclusiely audio streaming, not turntables, as audio source for the laScalas. So I'm thinking to just use a Sonos Amp to power the LaScalas. I know tha the Sonos Amp have more than enough power for la Scalas, but I would like to hear your views on it. Has anyone done this and is happy with the sound? Probably the tube amplifire sound is warmer and is the official way to go, but the convience of a Sonos Amp over a tube one is an important factor to me... Cheers!

  24. Cookin' again down, over, up but not left of wherever you are! Spent all yesterday afternoon making those dumplings. Got the other half coming out in 45 minutes. It's a pie, but there's no sugar! Tomatos, Vidalia, Mozzarella, basil, thyme, olive oil, mayo+ egg yolk, bread crumbs, Parmesan, Romano, S & P... Had sourdough bread to make the crumbs this time. Might add some garlic, but not with this chicken I made!

  26. This would seem to been a good example of whether capacitor ESR really matters. In the Chorus I circuit, the 15 ohm resistor is in series with the capacitor's ESR. If the capacitor's tolorance is 5%, it would be anywhere from 14.25 to 15.75 ohms. Couldn't the value of the resistor have a greater impact on the total impedance than the ESR of the capacitor?

  29. Whats is best amplifier for 5.2.2 setup with ( RP-8000F ,RP-504C , svs pb 2000 pro, svs pb 2000 pro) . Currently I have Yamaha Rxv683 . Can I use Rxv683 will there be any degradation in sound quality or damage to speaker . After reading forum looks like when we connect all the speakers 5.2.2 , output power will go down from 90w to x and kilplsch RP 8000f require minimum 120w Rxv 683 : Rated Output Power (20Hz-20kHz, 2ch driven). 90 W (8 ohms, 0.06% THD) From Klipsch articles RP-8000F requires an AV receiver with a bare minimum of 120W per channel (8 ohms), and no more than 300W per channel (8 ohms). Thanks in advance

  31. Congrats. I love my Forte IV. I never really worried about break in. I put my tuner on and just let it play for many hours without listening critically. I do this every time I make a change to the system. I really believe "break in" is half acclimation and half mechanical / surround compliance with speakers. Thats why just playing FM takes the analytical judgment out of the equation. Then after a week or so listening casualty I will form opinion.

  35. I would say to go ahead and try it. I did! I had them cross just slightly in front of my sitting position and that resulted in the most holographic presentations. after playing around you can always go back to the original position. Why not???? let us know what you decide and tell us what you discover while exploring. enjoy! warm regards, Tony

  36. They're on Audiogon where they've stayed $500 below asking price here even as the price has been adjusted. Same with US Audiomart, wonder why they're $500 more here? https://www.audiogon.com/listings/lisb08bc-klipsch-kpt-942-4-pro-jubilee-full-range https://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649898935-klipsch-pro-jubilees-with-xilica-active-crossover/

  39. I try to find something to laugh about every day. In this sick world it is very therapeutic. My laugh for today came from this scene from the movie Uncle Buck, my third favorite movie of all time (Animal House and Fast Times at Ridgemont High are #1 and #2). My sense of humor has not changed since I was about 11 years old. I guess I should be glad that one part of me has not aged with the rest… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ibO5kob3OQ (And I just told Henry that I won’t venture out of the tubes section!) Maynard

  42. Jim from JEM Performance Audio. Seems like I need to offer some information about what I do and why I do it with regards to Klipsch Heritage speakers. The capacitors I sell are approved by Klipsch engineering. I met personally with Roy Delgado over a year ago and discussed Klipsch crossovers in depth. Roy took the time to explain the differences in capacitor design and how they react in a network. My desire was to keep the vintage Klipsch models operating as PWK designed them to sound. This all came about because I had changed the caps in my Klipschorns to the most recommended and advertised capacitors in Klipsch land. My Klipschorns were not the same after I changed the caps for sure - but not in a good way. What changed? First the bass was peaked out, the tweeter was way too bright and the midrange had no life to it. It no longer sounded like a Klipschorn should; the realism was gone. I brought this to Roy's attention and he immediately smiled and proceeded to explain what was happening. You have to use the correct type of capacitor to maintain the specs of the network as designed by Klipsch. I know there are those out there that will disagree about this but I can tell you that once I installed the caps Roy recommended, the Klipschorns became totally balanced, the bass was smooth and the midrange open and detailed. I knew others would appreciate having their Klipsch speakers performing as they should, and together Roy and I put together the authorized network repair center. I only repair Klipsch speakers to factory specifications using authorized factory approved parts. Your speakers remain a genuine Klipsch product and will perform just as PWK intended. No modifications, no BULLS**T. So you are probably wondering why should I believe this guy and how does he know what a Klipsch speaker should sound like? Some background - I have used Klipsch speakers since the 1970s professionally and personally. I experienced the Klipsch industrial series products in live sound reinforcement. I used Klipsch speakers exclusively in both of my professional recording studios. I personally own Klipschorns, LaScalas, Cornwalls, Heresy Is, IIs, and industrial Heresy stage monitors. So you see I do know what a Klipsch speaker should sound like. We have Roy to thank for getting the correct parts available to keep our vintage pieces of audio history alive and well. I don't have much time to respond to questions via this forum but I can be reached during normal business hours at theaudioroom@verizon.net or by phone - 412-401-6915.
