  1. Hey guys! I'm just starting to tune into this thread! I used to be a DJ through most of the 90's so I had a pretty extensive collection of vinyl but most of it was 12" singles and 45's. I used to buy direct from Galaxy Records in Pittsburgh! Well, my DJ business disbanded after my partners and I started getting married and moving away so we split all the gear and music up between us! I ended up with most of the gear, including 4 or 5 Technics 1200 turntables that I wish I had just one of today, but the music all went to one of my partners. Fast forward to today, I am just starting to get back into vinyl but I literally have like 12 records! I guess my plan is to slowly buy my favorite albums and/or singles until I have a cool collection again...or die. Which ever comes first, LOL! Thanks for reading...I think I will spin a little AC/DC Back in Black when I get home tonight!

  2. Here's a nice little update... Going back to hospital today for surgery. Removing that stent, and 2nd attempt at taking out my friend, Kidney Stone... I prefer Josh Stone... Or even the Rolling Stones, or the whole Family Stone. But Kidney Stone must GO!

  4. It didn't look awful except the unloading and reloading that would be needed. Dude talks about unopened LPs frequently, but I'd wager from the statement that he's got it!

  6. Scroll back about a month. lol I went stealth mode on ya and planted a seed. What you talkin about Willis? Never dumped a shelf in me life. I DID pull everything out of one of my cabinets and had piles on the floor while I alphabetized them all. My buddy was telling me my engineering feat was impossible though and would come down. It ain't my first rodeo. 😂 Quit that stuff! Early this morning I actually looked at a Sumiko Starling @ Upscale. I need another cart??? Quit it! 😂 Me thinks Joss would be a tough nut to crack! She'd rip ur heart out first. I SWEAR me not know! It ain't my first rodeo. I did have a cabinet full of vinyl out of the cabinet on the floor while I alphabetized it. I DID have my cat fall thru the bass speaker on one of my Heresy's when I had the grill overs off. Shelf though? The last one I put up kinda worried me but it's still hangin and full. IF it falls now it's on @JohnJ Hope things go well Meloone! Blame the Camel

  8. I'm having a flashback now. I remember posting some photo of a guy who used those "Ikea" shelf units that fell dumping everything out. Not me though. Maybe that was it. My shelves fall I'd need a scoop shovel. lol Man if you jinxed me John... 😂

  9. Well I went to the PWK B'day bash but have never been to a pilgrimmage. The bash was spread out and involved listening sessions at the factory in Roy's lab with the new Jubilees, museum tours across the street from the factory, "open" listening sessions on Friday and Saturday with several systems setup in the constantly improving Klipsch visitors center (soon to have an outdoor concert facility), concerts in the Klipsch theater at City Hall on Friday and Saturday nights with plenty of food. There were auctions for pieces of art on Friday and for a pair Khorns on Saturday. The Klipsch visitors center had systems setup with 1950s Khorns (w/ vintage tubes), 1980s Khorns (McIntosh MA-352) , Cornwall 4s, Heresy 4s, McClaren 905s (Mcintosh C22 /MC275), and underground Jubs were there but not setup yet. These were all setup in different rooms in case you haven't been there. This is a very BIG house next door to where Bill Clinton was born. I was there in October 2021 and I can say that Klipsch is really moving forward with developing and continually improving these facilities and opening them to the public. Highly recommended to attend events at these facilities as they are announced. I already can't wait to go back. Finally, with Klipsch it's also the people. Not only the nicest people, but smart folks driven to constantly improve the customer experience and promote the life and accomplishments of PWK.

  10. I would suspect some devices might, like tubes perhaps or brand new caps. However I question a lot of what I hear on audio forums anyway. Heck, some folks say you can replace a fuse and hear it so they spend 250 bucks on a fuse. Then they- wait for it, turn the fuse 180 degrees and again hear a difference! But to answer your question from my personal perspective, I have seen mfg recommendations on speakers and amps etc quote 200-500 hours needed to fully break in. Who the heck remembers exactly what their system sounded like weeks/months ago? In short, I have never heard a difference but that's just me. My last amp was bought new, sounded great then, sounds great now.

  13. It is a great LP. Now the Denon has 50 hrs., so it should be broken in. I'll go back & listen to a few of the LPs that came in the past 2 weeks w/EMT cart. in next day or so. 😊

  18. I picked this up yesterday from forum member pollyoscar3722. Great transaction BTW. Held it for me until I found time to travel a bit. Someone else asked I do a review of it when I get it. I'll make an attempt at brevity. Here goes. The system it's attached to is:Fisher 440T with 500T output (30+ watts?) and rebuilt-Schiit Modi 3+(the real surprise for me)-Wiim Mini streamer feeding '79 Heresy 1 all OEM and the KG SW also OEM as far as I can tell. I began by positioning it in between the Heresy off to the left with ports facing me. The system is about 12-13 feet away from the speakers so I had to scavenge speaker wire from everywhere to make it work as it's passive and everything runs through the sub. At first I had the sensitivity on high. Too much for me so I changed it to low. Then I listened to everything. Carly Simon,Emerson Lake and Palmer,Crack The Sky,Macy Gray,Diana Krall,Little Feat,Dire Straits....I mean everything. Even listened to the Telarc recording of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overturn by the Cincinnati Philharmonic with the cannons.For about 5-6 hours. Then this morning I listened to Dark Side of The Moon. Because I know it. At least I thought I did. It was a different collection. I heard things never noticed. It's just what I sought. A way to fill out the range of the system without muddy sloppy noise that passes for....oops nevermind. It seems to have eased the load on the Heresy woofer allowing it to do what it does better. The whole soundstage seems bigger in all dimensions and spacious. Bass is brought forward without being forward. It is crisp clean and integral to the music as it was meant to be. For now I'll just listen where it is then maybe I'll change position. I did turn the ports away from listening position but it lost the speed it had. Hope this makes sense to anyone who reads it. This system is my introduction (at 63) to this level of sound quality. I thought my stuff in the '70s was good. Don't mean to gush but this sounds so good I'm afraid to screw with anything. Think I might be done for awhile. I'm surprised the Fisher is as good as it is.

  19. A few months ago I may have been more skeptical and assumed it was more an issue of someone getting used to the sound rather than speakers breaking in or electronics warming up. That changed when I replaced woofers in some speakers. When I first listened to the speakers with the new woofers the sound was quite bad - no depth, poor imagery, lack of bass. I let them play on with a variety of music at a moderate volume level while I did other things around the house, occasionally going back to the room to see if I was mistaken. For a few hours I was not mistaken, they continued to sound bad. And I almost took them apart thinking I’d wired them out of phase when “Let It Be” came on. It sounded different so I sat down to listen - the sound stage moved back, imagery was better, and there was a notable increase in bass. Your results may vary, of course. When it comes to new speakers, I’m quite sure at least some need a break in period.

  21. The musical introduction certainly makes you want to pay attention - or stand at attention. Amazing how durable tubes can be made as they were used in relatively new Russian MIG aircraft not long ago. I’ve read that tubes have the advantage over solid state devices in aircraft navigation in that it is impervious to damaging nuclear electromagnetic pulses.

  26. I don't know the answers but I listened to them for quite a while at the PWK birthday blast and they sound really good. They are currently setup in the Klipsch visitors center in Hope with some nice McIntosh tube equipment. People were playing from their phones with bluetooth and those speakers handled several different types of music very well.

  29. What I've always 'noticed' in my life is that they either work or they don't, and if I like them or I don't. Never logged into my brain a slight better or worse performance in sound in our gear over/due to 'time'. Unless broken or altered.. 🙃 Just me and I may be wrong 👌 I've been before a few times.... ~Mike

  31. I grew up down there. The Goodyear blimp used to have a base on Watson Island (on the causeway across from the cruise terminal). My dad took us over there to watch and the pilot saw the Goodyear tires on our car and gave us a ride over the city. Them were the days...

  37. I'm not really a bookshelf person but I was able to hook up one of these on my system. These are wonderful speakers and even the bass dynamics is incredible. Just like any klipsch works well with tone controls. You'll be very happy with it. Enjoy.

  38. I guess there are subs with a remote. Velodyne for example. I am very happy with the bass. Bass output in general is room dependant to a degree and you need to explore crossover and volume settings to integrate well with your speakers. All depends on what you would like your end result to be. You mentioned a remote? Do you want to crank it a bit so you hear it noticeably on every song? If so then that is somewhat opposite of most systems. For example, I want the subs to dissappear. The added base simply melds itself into the main speakers. I start my set up with Thanks To You by Boz Scaggs. If that sounds perfect than I'm going the right direction. But does rock have less thump than hip hop. Yep. That's just the way is was recorded....

  39. Yesterday I picked up a rather rare older Rockford Fosgate RFP-2000 High Current home amplifier that was the home version of the original Power 1000 car amplifier. From what I understand, this one is about as rare as hens teeth and sports 32 MOSFET outputs and is rated at 200wpc, I believe, and always tested higher. So as time goes, while we're building our new house, I'll tinker with it and post some more pictures. From what I've read, it has a huge torodial transformer inside and weighs in around 40lbs or so. It's pretty hefty for sure. More power than what my Belle's actually need but may see what it sounds like one day on them. It will definitely work well on the other lesser efficient speakers I have. May not be a lot of interest in this amp for some but it's definitely not something you see every day.

  40. 1) forte II and beyond have a 15” passive radiator versus the 12” in the original. forte II has a tractrix midrange horn. forte III and IV can be bi-wired or bi-amped. 2) Yes, very much so. 3) No

  42. How big is your room? Movies, music, both? Budget? Right now I would not buy a new Klipsch sub unless something new and great were to be revealed the low dollar options may be tempting but you really do get what you pay for. Lots of great Subwoofer companies out there offering free in home trials need to narrow down what it is you're looking for to get any good suggestions. Congrats on the new Cornwalls!

  46. My ProMedias arrived yesterday afternoon - the first good sign was/is the heft of the box. I could tell it was a substantial system. The sub is massive - I've had Altec Lansing and Boston Acoustics 2.1 computer speaker systems - and this dwarfs the subs in those. Anyway, to make a long story short - I've had them for 16 hrs as I write this - they're wonderful. By far the best sounding computer speakers I've ever owned. I tried them with both analog and in Bluetooth. In Bluetooth mode, the remote integrates wonderfully with my Windows 10 laptop. Also, they look very sophisticated and elegant on my desk - not some little plastic 'jewel cubes' but real speakers. I love seeing the classic Klipsch logo on my desk.

  47. Great, detailed review! Interesting that you prefer the lower output setting. As long as you enjoy it, good for you. The fact you noticed a difference just by adding the kg SW to the Heresies says the sub is no fluke but a real addition. The kg SW in my basement system has the ports facing the room. I tried them facing the wall but I'm within a couple inches and figured that was too close, without the option to move it away from the wall, and I couldn't tell the difference in sound anyway. But I certainly can tell the difference without the passive sub. It magically turns Heresies into full-range speakers without the higher end Heritage prices. I like the fact it actually high passes a signal to the satellites rather than a passing a full range signal. Those people at Klipsch are smart.
