  1. Sounds like a marriage made in heaven. We could just ship it around to each other for a week or two just to see what it sounds like. Sharing is caring! As if.

  2. I had recently acquired an RC-7 center speaker with the plan to use it in place of the soundbar in our main floor living room that's primarily used by my wife. I knew it was a big speaker and I should have measured where it was going to go because after I got it I knew it wasn't going to work. So, I put it up for sale on Facebook and Craigslist. Got an email through Craigslist a few days later from a gentleman who said he'd buy it. He lives a little over an hour from me. He stopped by the next day and I had it set up and when he first saw it his eyes lit up and he had a huge smile. I had no point of reference as to his age but I was surprised to see he was probably in his 70s. We chatted a bit and he told me that he's always wanted a really nice Klipsch home theater. Then he said he's terminally ill and recently moved into a home his brother owns because he's letting him live there for free since he can't work. I was surprised how positive he was despite his situation. As we talked more he mentioned that he has a nephew who likes Klipsch as well and said "my nephew is going to end up with a really nice setup." It made me happy that through this hobby I was able to help the gentleman with his lifelong dream.

  4. Resurrection as Pro-Ject Micro Seiki Incognito, introduced at the German High End Exhibition in Munich. May 22nd. 2022 At the Pro-Ject booth, several editors caught the eye of a new product that was strikingly reminiscent of an old one. Apparently, the legendary Micro Seiki DQX 1000 is celebrating a kind of resurrection as a Pro-Ject, which is great news per se for lovers of such a design classic. The device will be available with either direct or belt drive and, of course, multiple tonearms can be mounted simultaneously. Prices are not yet fixed. nothing can replace the origin dqx 1000

  5. You all know that I am an audioholic and vinyl nerd. Oh what can I say... again something ran over the way I couldn´t resist. I bought myself an ADC MK IV MI pickup. I simply couldn´t help myself. This is so rare and is supposed to be one of the best moving iron ever made. This system was made only by request privately by Peter Prichtard after 1985 in his retirement. For this he used selected XLM bodies from his fund. The needle was provided with the naked Pathemax diamond of his Sonus systems. It was never officially available for purchase and was only given to select collectors. Sonically, it combines the outstanding spaciousness of the XLM Series with the fantastic resolution of a Sonus Series, providing a wonderful conclusion to his work that the XLM unfortunately never experienced during its official build. Like the ADC 25 absolutely unrivaled. Pics will follow ...expect to get it till end of this week.

  21. Ok, I sat on this last night and saved it til today. Buddy and his lil woman stopped by last night to hang a while. Soooo, when this happens I adjust my play list to a lil less bluesy and mix in a few older rock lp's. Doobies, etc. Sounds she can relate to. So here we sat listening and in the middle of one of his old rock magazine tales (all he read as a kid and retained a lot of it, which is what makes him fun cause I counter w/facts not bs) my Gold Lions blossomed. I heard an immediate change in the sound. He didn't hear squat after I said something about it. Talk about stoked? I was one happy boy and hit the drivers seat What was I listening to when it happened? This guy right here. Talk about a melting point? Those Gold Lions are EVERY thing and more than I imagined! Detail, clarity, harmonics, soundstage. Just ALL it happened. WOW is all I can say. Today? A bit of time before another baseball game so threw this one on. Nope, nothing changed over night. Just amazing is all I can say. Wow! Okay, Fewer new lp's and an Evo400 integrated w/new Gold Lion's is in my future Yea, deeper down the rabbit hole but the return? Bill Hanley's favorite line before any show was always "Can you hear me in the back??? Dayum Skippy!!! Ball game shortly but I've been putting a play list together for later. Gonna REALLY piss off the neighbors this evening! Ok, Keb' Mo' WHY did you just sign the 4th side of this double gatefold lp? Grrrrrrr! OK, that did it! Gonna put the squeeze on some of this guy so I'll have a smiley face for the ball game! Carry on!

  22. To respond to: Wuzzer, Idontknow & PeterP --- My room is an irregular shape. it’s roughly 15’ x 15’. i have the the Low Pass Filter set to 60 and the Slope at 24 dB, which SVS recommends for Heresy IVs. I have the volume set at around -6 or -7 for music. The blending is seamless to my ears. I listen to a many different types of music but mainly Jazz, Folk & Rock.

  24. Mornin' all Been up for a while. Nicw rhis AM.. a little cool. A few high clouds. Nice sunrise. Color 360` I contacted the shop I bought the Yamaha from. Gonna take it in... . This going to sound stupid... but, I might let them clean/lube my old Sony DVD player. The silly thing reads discs with fewer glitches than any other machine I have. I use it for CDs the dust is a big problem here. Growls a little when it loads. And it is 15 years old. Never been serviced in any manner I could prolly do it myself... just a matter of the right lube and where to put it

  25. I don't know if it's a myth or not, but consuming this beverage while listening always helps my speakers/music sound better 100% of the time! (And it's a lot cheaper than interconnects that cost a mortgage payment, wooden pucks that keep your "perfectly insulated cables" off the floor, gimmicky tube connectors, etc) Plus, the more I consume, the better I can sing and dance.... coincidence?

  26. I was the first to try Popbumpers Academy network and it literally transformed it. I had a lengthy post back them that I titled "An Academy Tale" the stock network is an obvious compromise. The detail and clarity really increased with his network installed keep in mind is did not come cheap but it is worth it. I know which one I would choose between the stock network and the K-Stack.

  32. As the title says, wife and I are having our first baby and that pushed me to finish all my partially completed projects to get rid of some parts I had on hand over the last 7 months! I have been building these items for fun and experience over the last 3 years and learned a lot. I recently started making my own custom logos to add some flair to the amps. If you do not like the look of an amp or want a special logo made separately, let me know and I can include so you can swap it out. I have listen to and enjoyed all of these pieces in my system, but realized it's time to let some of it go! I generally try to match up preamplifiers with amps and would offer discounts for multiple items being purchased. I am located in Houston but willing to ship. We can negotiate shipping if multiple items are purchased. I can send more pictures, just PM me or message on this thread. Preamplifiers and Headphone Amps: - Korg Nutube b1 Preamplifier in black Hammond Chassis with AMB Sigma o11 regulated PSU in external matching chassis - asking $500 (preamplifier only) - Korg Nutube b1 Preamplifier in silver Hifi2000 chassis and contains power filtering board inside. The power supply is a Triad SMPS wall wart - Asking $400 (preamplifier only) - Amp Camp Preamp in silver Hifi2000 chassis with Triad SMPS wall wart - Asking $400 (Preamplifier and Headphone amp) - Wayne's Linestage Preamplifier in a custom built chassis with AMB o11 Sigma power supply and walnut sides - $500 (preamplifier and Headphone amp) - Whammy (Waynes Headphone Amp Must Make Yourself) in a silver Hifi2000 chassis. I added preamplifier outputs to it and a switch for either mode - Asking $350 Amplifiers: - Amp Camp Amplifier with Diyaudio Forum modifications recommended by Tungstenaudio and Rudi Ratlos, CapMX Power Supply, 28 volt rails, and custom built chassis with 10mm silver faceplate and rack handles - Asking $700 - Amp Camp Amplifier with Diyaudio Forum modifications recommended by Tungstenaudio and Rudio Ratlos, CRC Nelson Pass Power Supply, 24 volt rails, and custom built chassis with walnut faceplate - Asking $500 - Amp Camp Amplifier mono block pairs in custom chassis with Curly Maple faceplates and Tungstenaudio upgrades to the boards. 24V Meanwell power suppliers. - A friend enjoyed these for 6 months and ended up buying one of my last pairs of upgraded PSU amps for his system knowing I wouldn't be building any more for awhile. - Currently building a pair of Amp Camp amps in the Diyaudio chassis' with Tungstenaudio upgrades and a separate external PSU with CapMX PSU, torroidal transformers, and a Hifi2000 Pesante 2u. Length of umbilical cord will be between 2-3 feet. - Asking $1200 once completed Other: - H2 Harmonic Generator with 12V Power supply in small, silver hammond chassis. Great way to add second harmonic distortion on a budget! - Asking $80

  34. You have my favorite pro heresy in the kp-201ii's, hold on to them as the rarely come up for sale and for good reason. ANYTHING will be an improvement over the fart boxes AKA KP-115's. The driver in the KPT-484 is an 18" K-49. The K-49 is a 4 ohm, 400 watt woofer and was used by Klipsch in the KPT-484, the KP-480, and the KP-4000. I have the KP-480's that I use with my split lascala's and they sound great to me. I would give those 484's a shot. Again another speaker that rarely comes up. Put some high current through those 484's something like a Crown K2. As far as crossovers go you can always get a minidsp for 100 bucks until you get something better down the road.

  35. I am making stands for all three pairs of speakers, simple ones for the Klispch, a little more complicated for the JBL's with slant risers. Even that takes a lot of time. Designing, cutting out, laminating the ends, three coats of Deft, sanding... Takes my whole day up.

  36. I agree with Emile about the vintage receivers. I'm driving my Chorus IIs with a 1977 Pioneer SX-1050 and the sound is wonderful on everything from very quiet easy listening all the way up to AC/DC blowing you out of the room.
