  1. Hey all, Sorry about that. I've been trying since Monday to get the new certificate for this server, but our vendor was being very difficult for no apparent reason other than technical issues. All should be good now. Thanks

  2. At first, my wife wasn't sure she wanted to have a celebration, but finally accepted it whole heartedly. We had about 25 friends with us at one of the newer trendy places in Chattanooga's South Side. It was a lot of fun (as it usually is when a bunch of Filipinos get together).

  5. Took delivery of my Belle Klipsch about three weeks ago. After getting some listening time in I've finally discovered what everyone means when they can really hear the difference in the way a source was recorded. I've had many Klipsch speakers but these are the first ones I've had where good recordings sound magnificent and bad ones are pretty much unlistenable. But all and all I love these things. Running them with just a solid state McIntosh MA 6100 integrated. Plenty of power for them. I'm a happy camper.

  7. Two (2) pairs of absolutely gorgeous La Scala Birch Raw (LSBR) for sale. These are truly "plug and play", and will only improve with a slight bit more break-in. I have tested each pair for approximately two hours with varying music genres and at differing volume levels, and they sound great as you might expect. BOTH PAIRS: (Please read) New DaveA SMAHL tweeters with DE120 drivers. New driver to crossover wiring. New A55G Mid Range drivers. New driver to crossover wiring. New Eminence Kappa 15C woofers New AA circuit crossovers built with new Jantzen Z Superior capacitors, new autoformers, new coils. The circuit has been slightly modified to tame the midrange a bit, and these sound very smooth and well balanced. And believe me, these can really crank it up...... New driver to horn gaskets on the mid range New gasket seals on bottom panels of the LF bins All horn to cabinet screws have been checked and tightened if required Pair 1 $2750 Serial Numbers: 19T986, 19T987 (1979) Beautiful grain on these, with what I believe is a very light polyurethane finish. This pair has had braces installed in the LF bin by the previous owner, and they did a very good quality job. Overall, the cabinets are splendid, with a few chips and dings commensurate with their >40 year old age, but nothing major. SOLD Pair 2 $2650 SOLD Serial numbers 27W627, 28W105 (1981) (although these are not consecutive, the cabinets look extremely similar and beautiful) Again, really nice grain on this pair, however these have had no outer finish applied and are truly raw birch. As with Pair 1, overall, the cabinets are gorgeous, with a few chips and dings commensurate with their >40 year old age but nothing major. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Each of these are available for local pickup in the South Bend, IN area. However, if you would like these shipped, you will need to make all arrangements for packaging and transport. I have used a service called Uship several times for shipping large speakers. I will be happy to audition in my home, with all appropriate precautions observed. PLEASE MESSAGE ME WITH SERIOUS INTEREST. PLEASE DO NOT COMMENT WITHIN THIS THREAD REGARDING PRICE, OR WHAT YOU BOUGHT YOUR SPEAKERS FOR 10/20/30 YEARS AGO.....Not interested in trades, but thank you. FYI - These are cross posted in a number of forums. Cash, USPS Money Order, bank check or PayPal with applicable fees. Thanks for looking. Pair 1 photos

  15. Well this is the EPILOGUE. Yesterday the Jubilees went to a new and loving home. The transaction could not have been smoother. The buyer had not heard Jubilees before, but had distant memories of Klipschorns from his youth. The demo consisted of Tracy Chapman, Cowboy Junkies, Dave Brubeck, Natalie Merchant as I recall. The grin on his face was classic. For those of you fortunate enough to have Jubilees, remember back to your first experience - yes, it was that kind of grin! For those of you interested, the advertisement generated a good deal of activity. Location, transportation, size of the big beasts, and lack of cash were the prime deal breakers. I am confident that they will continue to bring pleasure to the listener in their new home. My girl friend stopped by with some freshly baked bread as a bit of a Bon Voyage gift (Sourdough with rosemary - it has been our pandemic hobby). I really think she wanted to see if I had a tear in my eye. After a glass of wine I waved good bye. During the time I have enjoyed this passion for big Klipsch speakers, I have met some truly great and wonderful folks. Yesterday was no exception. -Tom

  16. OK, I shipped out an amp that weighed 50 pounds roughly. I don't have the dimensions, but it was packed well. Would have been 150 fully insured. I ended up paying $65 fully insured. Just trying to aid others. What do you use for shipping? Maybe you have something better than this? Do tell.

  28. I had no idea about this until I went looking at videos on getting internet to outbuildings and thought I would try it. Amazon had free returns on both so if it did not work it "should" be no problem returning. It says it can go up to 1000' of wire, but I would guess the further you go the signal would get worse, just like the power of the electricity drops off dramitically with length of wire . I had talked to a guy about this and he said years ago this technology was pretty rough at best. But the power companies got involved and refined how it and now it is what they now use to read meters, the numbers for your power usage goes right to the office. I would imagine they had a huge interest because cutting out meter readers probably saved millions. I am just happy it worked, kind of always suprised when something works as advertised. .

  29. Thanks guys, I appreciate the input! I do have an older bottom firing 12" Klipsch sub with large rear port, forget the model number. It has served me well and I'm sure it will help. I'm waiting for my new preamp to arrive, a NAD C-165 BEE. Current preamp is a mostly restored Tandberg 3002 A. Nice sounding pre but, no remote. Digital is a Marantz SA8005 for CD and my Apple devices. Turntable is my trusty, dusty Pioneer PL-400 which still sings. It has needed work however. Power amp is a Parasound 2250 v2 which I have used with other horns including RF-7II's. I think it will be a good fit with the LS'. Fixed up some 16 gauge speaker wire today with spades and a touch of solder. Can't wait until tomorrow afternoon.

  30. OK I needed to get reliable wifi out in the shop so I tried something I had watched a video on. And it worked great. It is called Powerline Ethernet and uses the powerlines in your house. It is 2 small boxes, one plugs into an outlet and has a ethernet cable that plugs into your router, this sends internet into your power lines. The second box is the same but you plug it into any outlet on the house wiring, it also has an ethernet wire to either wire directly or to another router. I have a pump shed about 20' from the shop so I dug a trench and came off the pump shed extra outlet which is connected to the house and ran a wire into the shop and installed an outlet. The shop is on it's own meter so I had to come from the house. I plugged in the box by the router and went outside and plugged in the other box and a wire to a router I bought. I pressed the WPS button on the new router and it connected to my music laptop in the shop fast and has a great wifi signal, as good as what is in the house. It worked, now I have a solid siginal out there even with the doors closed. The circuit I used is about 250' long and has 3 outlets on it not counting the one I added on the end and on the other side of the breaker box. About $90 total and solved a big problem. https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-AV1000-Powerline-Ethernet-Adapter/dp/B08M13B8B6/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?adgrpid=1331509151460529&dchild=1&hvadid=83219393985878&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=55814&hvnetw=o&hvqmt=e&hvtargid=kwd-83219680178094%3Aloc-190&hydadcr=24627_10647559&keywords=powerline%2Bethernet%2Badapter&qid=1629824964&sr=8-1-spons&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzUlJITzVRSlJUTjlJJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNDM1MjkwM0dWRUg2WFg0QkRCOSZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNjM3MzIyUERBRVpINTU1TDY4JndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ&th=1 router https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-AC1200-WiFi-Router-Access/dp/B07RKYQGG4/ref=sr_1_8?dchild=1&keywords=router&qid=1629843515&sr=8-8&th=1

  39. 1979 Belle Klipsch Speakers in Teak finish. $3000 Excellent condition. Not new, of course. Installed Crites upgraded crossovers. (Originals included) New Crites Tweeters (Originals included) Finish is clean and black speaker fabric has no tears or snags. You can read reviews and specs online.

  40. I have the Parasound P6 and it’s phenomenal for its price. More inputs than you could ever use, phono preamp (which I have not used) DAC (have not used either) and incredible bass management if you ever want to add a subwoofer.

  43. I have a pair of JC’s, Justin Webber’s (Amps & Sound) and Dave Harris’ (Fastlane Audio) Minipunch speakers. Bass bin is JC’s Minipunch design with dual Eminence Delta-12FLA drivers Mid horn is Fastlane’s Eliptrac with B&C DE750 drivers Tweeter is Fastlane’s horn with B&C DE10 driver. Crossover is custom ALK/Justin Webber design. I believe it’s second order with 450 or 500/6000 Hz crossover points. wiring is 12 gauge stranded Cabinets are 27” wide x 20” deep x 43” tall, weigh over 150 lbs each, ported (3”) and the ports can be plugged using Oatey 3” compression plugs if you prefer sealed. The cabinets are built like tanks and the craftsmanship is second to none. Anyone who has experience with Justin’s speakers can attest. The cabinets are raw and need a finish. They are fully functional, sound incredible, better than La Scala’s / Belles / Cornwall’s. Hit harder, dig deeper, sound clearer… $2000 located in San Jose CA Not sure what they weigh but probably over 150 lbs each. Shipping won’t be cheap but I’ll work with someone if need be. I’m moving out of the country, otherwise I would not be selling them! I have more pictures of better quality I can share if serious about buying. A couple of Links to minipunch threads on this forum:
