  5. It is not here, go here: Stay Tuned about the Klipsch Museum of Audio History Visitor Center Spring Fundraising Campaign. Three sponsorship levels, ($25-$100-$250) Each level will have a corresponding number of entries entered in the giveaway - a truly unique pair (1 of 1) of the final pre-production all new AL6 La Scalas with active crossover network (including time alignment and eq.). The person whose name is drawn will have the option to select from the woods available for the final production (possibly walnut, cherry, black ash). The cabinet build and final inspection, selection/matching of drivers, and crossover settings will all be personally supervised by Sr. Engineer, Roy Delgado, Jr. (Chief Bonehead) who will hand sign them. The person whose name is drawn to receive these will be the first in the world to have these in their home. More details on how to become a sponsor of the campaign and entry into the giveaway will be coming in the next couple of days.

  10. Ha! TOTALLY enjoyin mah coffee this morning. Crashed at 4AM and woke up to some crazy dream at 630 I wont even go into. lol So yea, time for some coffee and a moment to reflect on the life values of it. Me? Seriously? That much fun coming from a guy who NEVER dreams. 😂 Wondered where the neighbor kid had been. Guess he went to Disneyworld but he's back in full force. It's baseball season! Activate curmudgeon mode. Mow the yard right in the middle of batting practice. Yup, I won! UNTIL I had to get off the mower about 10 times picking up balls and bats they'd left laying all over the place. They're reproducing. Wait! I could be onto something. i was driving and picked up a kid hitch hiking here in Duckburg. Interesting. He had a real fire axe. He started tapping the passenger door w/the fire axe. I locked the breaks up, grabbed him by the throat and told him to get outta the car before I ripped his throat out. Yea, that's it. Self analysis. I'm all better now. Back to the coffee. That @grasshopper is sooooo gonna hear it when he surfaces. 9AM and someone's mowing? Quit it. Yea, the feet are up. Curmudgeon's unite!

  11. dutch prince: https://www.atube-highfidelity.nl/nieuws/bernhard-van-oranje-kiest-voor-klipsch-mcintosh/ (translation) BERNHARD VAN ORANJE CHOOSES KLIPSCH AND MCINTOSH Alongside the Hifi Rose RS150B and high-end cabling from Audioquest THE BEGINNING A project for an installation like this doesn't come together in just a few days. The initial encounter dates back to March 2022 when Bernhard visited our old showroom on Argonweg in Almere to listen to the Klipsch Klipschorns. Why Klipsch? Well, during a trip to America, he had experienced the combination of Klipsch + McIntosh, and both the looks and sound had stayed with him. After a thorough listening session, the initial impression of the Klipschorns was positive. By that time, we had moved into our new showroom on Televisieweg, where we were the only ones in the Netherlands to have the Klipsch Jubilee's. Considering Bernhard's preferences and the dimensions of the room where the speakers were going to be placed, we couldn't recommend anything else but to give the Jubilee's a try. So, as the saying goes, it was done, and we continued with a listening session featuring the Jubilee's in our new showroom. The Jubilee's, in comparison to the Klipschorns, showcased remarkable versatility. While the Klipschorns excelled in genres like Diana Krall in a live concert or Jazz from Miles Davis and Mozart's Requiem, the Jubilee's, without any adjustments to the equipment or settings, could make Armin van Buuren and Martin Garrix sound like the best nightclub installation you've ever heard. They delivered power, bass, and dynamics you'd desire, yet maintained the softness and finesse of a hi-fi set, allowing you to enjoy high volumes without discomfort after just 2 minutes. Where the Klipschorns made a good impression, the Jubilee's were practically a no-brainer, and this set was nearly perfection in every sense of the word. After finalizing the order, we proudly and enthusiastically went to Amsterdam multiple times to install and fine-tune this set. We also collaborated with other parties extensively to seamlessly integrate the installation into the bar/wall unit where it now stands beautifully. THE SET To fill a space of approximately 8x12 with a ceiling about 6 meters high with grand and beautiful sound, there's arguably no speaker better suited than the Klipsch Jubilee. The flagship model of Klipsch leaves nothing to the imagination. Despite being beautifully integrated into a colossal bar by a furniture maker, they might seem somewhat manageable in size. However, don't be deceived by the dimensions of these powerhouses (DxWxH): 76,127,175 cm. The Klipsch Jubilee's, with their external active crossover, require at least 2 stereo power amplifiers to independently drive the mid/high and low frequencies of both speakers. When you think of iconic, reliable, and powerful, you usually think of only one brand... McIntosh. With the C53 serving as the preamplifier and the MC462 and MC312 as the power amplifiers, there is extreme control over the sound, even at very high volumes. The MC462, with 2x 450 watts, handles the low frequencies. As mentioned, these massive cabinets can produce an immense amount of pressure and low-end. To continuously do this for hours on end, no amplifier suits better than the MC462. Additionally, the MC312 is the amplifier for the mid/high frequencies with 2x 300 watts, more than sufficient for the highly efficient Klipsch drivers with the mega horn. In addition to musicality, the set had to be an eye-catcher. Despite the large space they occupy, you're immediately drawn to the cabinet with all the McIntosh equipment and their dancing VU meters upon entering. Equally impressive is the Hifi Rose RS150B. This streamer with a full-size touchscreen display uniquely and addictively displays the album art of the current music. For cabling, we looked at the top segment of Audioquest, from Robin Hood to Black Beauty, and also Monsoon and NRG. A set like this would not be complete without reliable and high-quality cabling. LIST OF EQUIPMENT The set consists of: Klipsch Jubilee McIntosh C53 McIntosh MC462 McIntosh MC312 Hifi Rose RS150B Audioquest Niagara 3000 Audioquest Robin Hood Audioquest Black Beauty Audioquest Monsoon THE FIRST SET OF KLIPSCH JUBILEE At the time of Bernhard's order, the Klipsch Jubilee had just been released. Not only were we the first to have this set ready for demonstration in the Netherlands, but we were also proud to deliver the first consumer set! To immortalize this, we captured it with a plaque and in style. In this way, the already extremely exclusive set gains an extra touch of personality and uniqueness.

  16. Hi all. Thanks for the experiences u shared. I just finished 0.75 watt 1626 set drive amp with 6sl7 and 5y3 rectify. For the first 2 hours the sound is sweet smooth details and very musical. However, it still lack of impact on the low frequency. I think the la scala needs more power. May be the el84 se ultra linear and 2a3 se will be my next project : )

  21. Ciao, Agostino, Well the AK6 version has the rear portion of the bass horn enclosed so it doesn't need to be pushed tightly into a perfect corner like the earlier versions do. The AK6 does however benefit from being placed near a corner based on what I've read. I have AK2 from the 1980's and they need to be tight to the corners or the balance of the speaker is affected and they sound thin. AK6 should be good. Maybe someone here who owns AK6 will answer with actual experience.

  24. Yea, forgot that part. Post divorce I was in a-fib so the OSU heart hospital had a revolving door built just for me. I had darn near every nurse on the floor trying to hook me up with this hot af nurse a few years younger. They ALL were telling me how much she enjoyed me. Yea, we did get along and laff a lot but outta one wallet rape into possibly another? Beside a two-hour round trip all the time? Blah. I've OFTEN wondered just WHAT she might be up to now. Kinda glad I stuck w/the fat one that told me they actually drew straws for me cause I was no fuss or muss and hilarious. Then she started in w/the full body massage tease? Why of course, have at it. Trust me they are ALL outta the box and mmm mmmm good. I know I've got that number she wrote down somewhere. Sounds like a pay to play sport doesn't it? 😂

  25. One for today that I "borrowed" from a Jewish humour group I belong to on FB: Chaim comes to his rabbi with a problem he’s been having lately: — Rabbi, as you know, I’ve been working at Katz’ Deli for the past few years. But lately, I’ve been overcome with an immense desire to stick my penis into the pickle slicer. All I can think about is fulfilling this dream of mine. The rabbi is disturbed and suggests to Chaim to join Talmudic studies at the synagogue a few times a week to see if the wisdom of Talmud may help him overcome such a peculiar desire. After a few weeks, Chaim comes to rabbi again. He clearly lost a few pounds, his forehead is sweaty, and he shares with rabbi that even though the study helped to dull his obsession a little initially, but it came back with a vengeance and the only thing he really can think of is sticking his penis into the pickle slicer at work. Rabbi thinks hard about it and finally says: Chaim, since the desire in you is so powerful and it consumes you so much, then perhaps the best course of action would be to follow up on it. So Chaim leaves, and comes back next afternoon proclaiming: — Rabbi, Rabbi! I did it! I stuck my penis into the pickle slicer! Rabbi looks at him in disbelief and asks him: — Are you OK, Chaim? — Yes, yes, I am more than OK! It was the best experience in my life! I did get fired from Katz’ Deli, but it was absolutely worth it! — And what about the pickle slicer? — Well, she got fired too.

  27. From the Stereophile measurements: "The La Scala will work best with amplifiers that are not fazed by 4 ohm loads," Make sure whatever you build has the correct OPTs for a 4 ohm load or multiple taps.

  30. I concur, Greg at Nelion has restored and upgraded 4 Carver amps for me: M1.0t, M1.5t, and two M4.0t's in the past 1-1/2 years. I got the premium upgrade service on all the amps that was available at the time, although shortly after I got my M4.0t's back, he announced an upgrade option to these that pushed output to 475 watts or something like that. Well these drive Khorns so don't need the power anyway. The first amp was turned around in 2 weeks, the second, in one month, and the two M4.0t's took 2 months (went in at the same time). Highly recommended

  40. It’s also an AKAI. Jeff said it was sold under the Roberts brand name but the plate on the back says AKAI. It’s got a small amp and speakers with some gills on the side over the built in speakers. This afternoon we listened to A Question of Balance by The Moody Blues. it was fine.

  43. Good question. I loaned the Aiyima to my grandson a few months ago, so I haven't tried it for quite a while. And, I've been using the preamp section of the Marantz to feed the ACA, so that hasn't really been used as a full-on integrated for more than a year. My memory is, the sound of the Marantz and the Aiyima are not that far apart. The ACA provides more detail...just a very clear sound. I would describe the Marantz and Aiyima as more of a warm sound. I've only been listening to the Fisher for a few hours. My initial impression is that it sounds very much like the ACA with a touch more warmth and a slightly more expansive sound stage. The big difference is in the bass. I described it to my brother-in-law as more controlled and powerful. Not any deeper, but definitely more robust. I have my listening space in the basement and for the first time ever, I could feel the bass coming through the floor when I went upstairs. I'm sure the Aiyima would do that, too, but I've never played it in this house so I can't compare them head to head.

  46. FIRST, try this: put each speaker in a room corner, push the speaker all the way into the corner, touching each wall, or within 1/16 inch of each wall, but aimed toward the main listening position. Corner placement should add about 3 dB to 6 dB to the bass, depending on the former location. To avoid early reflections from the nearby walls, put an absorber on each wall about where a yardstick would touch the wall if you held it flat against the front of speaker. If the absorber is 2 feet wide, that should be enough. Like this: If this doesn't give you enough bass, SECOND, try another amplifier with two features: 1) More power (at least 100 watts, both channels operating, at low distortion, probably 0.05% THD or better [like, 0.01% which is what you have now], 20 to 20,000Hz) and 2) tone controls. Don't listen to those who say avoid tone controls! A Bass Control turned up a bit can really help! The bass control probably won't affect the subwoofer, so turn the subwoofer gain knob up. Try crossing over to the subwoofer at 60 Hz and 80 Hz, and go with what sounds the best with bass heavy material.
