  1. I'm figuring by this time tomorrow your friends will recant and be calling you a genius. Your parents however, will be looking for a shrink to get you on medication kewl ------------------ dean
  2. Then by all means buy the RF5's. Even with less than optimum placement, they will sound better than anything else at that price point. The Reference Series towers, for whatever reason -- aren't as prone to boominess in the bass as other towers. Also -- you won't be in that same apartment forever. Buy and enjoy! Good luck. ------------------ dean
  3. Well...I'm using RF7's and my listening position is 11.5 away. The speakers are 2 feet off the back wall though. RF5's are sweet. It depends on how close to the back wall you are talking about. RB5 II's and a RSW10 might suit you better though. This would rival the performance of the towers without question. In ways it might be better -- because you would have more control over room boundry effects. I also think the sub would be beneficial in that it would take your bass lower. RB5 II's use the same horn/tweeter as the RF5's and are also real wood. You would be sacrificing 3db of efficiency and the combo solution would cost you about $300 more. Damn those tradeoffs. Something to think about. ------------------ dean
  4. I can't believe this question has been out here since this morning -- where in the hell is everyone? ------------------ dean
  5. since my listening is done near field -- the LF10 is more than sufficient I don't even use it when listening to music as my AE-25 provides more than enough bass thanks ears ------------------ dean

  7. Hey jnorv - is the 'boom' still there? what is your overall assessment at this point? happy or indifferent? I was actually thinking that if one were to lay it on its side -- it would make a great TV stand -- a couple of sheets of sheet metal and a 1/2 dozen vibrapods between the cabinet and TV might provide enough shielding vibration control to prevent the picture from distorting. Of course, I'm only talking 27' TV here. That would be only way I could do it. My listening area is way too small for that monster. ------------------ dean This message has been edited by deang on 03-16-2002 at 11:23 PM
  8. but i like the sound of 2nd order harmonic distortion ------------------ dean
  9. I never really looked at it - since i know how to hook subs up out of sheer boredom i was thumbing through it and found where it said initial volume for setup is 9/10 o'clock position jeesh - I have to take it to 3 o'clock position before I even hear it coming in to match my RF7's Does this mean I got one of the bum amps? ------------------ dean
  10. ahh yes -- good thinking my man. I got the same problem sometimes -- when Debbie decided to home school the kids I gave up the living room and moved my system upstairs. I do alot of low level listening and movies at night. Sometimes, if I feel like jacking the volume I slide on the HD600's. hmmm -- I wonder how those shakers would do with headphones? ------------------ dean
  11. yes justin - u are funky cool hey earle - you're gonna hate me - you spelled theater 'theature' ;-) That dawg got a name? Beautiful animal. ------------------ dean This message has been edited by deang on 03-16-2002 at 07:59 PM
  12. how u do that funky kool $hit ------------------ dean
  13. You did good Halder. I would of helped you out before you spent the dough but I don't get over here to HT forum much. You did well with the Parasound. It is a very good choice. Of course -- I would have recommended you buy my Anthem Amp1 which I can't seem to get rid of ------------------ dean
  14. kewl did u get them shakers before of after the SVS subs? ------------------ dean
  15. Your local Klipsch dealer is an idiot. The RF7 is a two-way and as far as two-ways go, the crossover is pretty low -- which actually helps the mid-bass and midrange stay cleaner. Also, the lowest notes are actually being produced by the ports. The RF7 has the best sounding bass from a bass reflex tower I have ever heard. It is tight, tight, tight. No boom, no slop. It is tuneful and well defined. The only way to get the kind of bass you are talking about is to go with two RSW15's or a pair of SVS subs (which would be much more cost effective). Ears is right about your present sub. It will not even REMOTELY be able to keep up with your RF7's. As a matter of fact -- you might even be experiencing some cancellation effects, depending on how you have your sub sitting. Does your sub have a phase switch? If so, have you played with it? The most bang for the buck will come from adding a monster sub or two. At any rate, until you get your monster sub(s) - you might help your cause by moving the speakers closer towards the walls and corners -- no closer than a foot though. Now, if you want real bass -- you're gonna have to get yourself a itty bitty tube amp ------------------ dean This message has been edited by deang on 03-16-2002 at 07:12 PM
  16. I know Mobile isn't too thrilled with them but I really like them - especially with the several different solid state amps I've had over the last year. I almost bought the AE-3 but ran across a great deal on a Line 1 and couldn't resist the temptation to give it whirl. It's a sharp looking piece with a really nifty remote. What I did last week was hook up my AE-25 through it because I wanted to see how it did with movies -- and I needed the additional switching functions of the preamp. I've been very happy with the performance of the two pieces combined with movies. Later in the week I got around to listening to more music and felt too lazy to unplug the AE-25 from the Line 1, move the CD interconnects and speaker cables -- so I just popped a CD in. I was very suprised at how different it sounded as opposed to just using the AE-25 as a stand alone with the volume control. The midrange withdrew a quite a bit and there was less bite. It sounded noticably warmer and richer. The bass was also a little tighter sounding with some additional 'oomph' -- this could have been a result of having a less pronounced midrange. It sounds very good -- but certainly different. At any rate -- the Line 1 sounds great whether mated to the Bryston or the AE-25. At least in my system with the RF7's -- the 6922 fairs pretty well. I would have no idea how to complain about it. ------------------ dean This message has been edited by deang on 03-16-2002 at 03:32 PM
  17. if it's one thing i've learned since dealing with this company is that Klipsch has integrity my money is on the drivers being of the same quality or better -- with an almost insignificant price increase ------------------ dean This message has been edited by deang on 03-16-2002 at 06:22 PM
  18. I would start with two channel HT and get some RB5's or RF3 II's. Then over time add speakers to your system. Yes...the Reference Series is that good. I would take two RB5's over a whole room full of Synergy speakers. ------------------ dean
  19. Fabian, My comment regarding the Polk forum was posted on the 9th. At that time Chris was trying to form a posse to have me rounded up and hung. Since then, Micah and Justin have reeled those folks in and the likes of you, Troy, Ron, and others have been very receptive of my presence. I apologize for my comments. ------------------ dean
  20. Hey Zandern check out this review: http://www.audio-ideas.com/reviews/loudspeakers/klipsch-rb5.html ------------------ dean
  21. Justin, Are you asking me or mobile? I never forget what i have I just figured since everything in the Reference line uses similiar drivers and crossover components/points -- I thought the impedance curves might also be similiar. Mike, You should buy a set. They have them at Brandnamez.com for $529. This message has been edited by deang on 03-12-2002 at 02:49 PM
  22. you mind as give up trying to remember who has what on this site i actually use the RF7's ------------------ deanG
  23. I'm pretty sure it's Sony They also just recently released some Pink Floyd Rush Areosmith Journey I scarf them up when I see them. Some are 22 bit, but all of them sound better than the original releases -- and dare I say it...YES...EVEN THE LP's. So the problem wasn't the CD format -- but the process utilized. Records might have sounded better than CD's 20 years ago -- but not anymore. ------------------ deanG This message has been edited by deang on 03-12-2002 at 02:04 PM
  24. In the following RB5 review: http://www.audio-ideas.com/reviews/loudspeakers/klipsch-rb5.html There is this: "The impedance curve shows woofer and port peaks, the latter at 50 ohms, a low point between them of 5 ohms, with a high of 29 ohms in the midrange. Maybe this speaker isn't quite the answer for single-ended fans after all, since frequency response will tend to track the impedance curve with these amps in such circumstances." What does the latter statement mean, and does this statement also apply to a push-pull triode design like my AE-25? ------------------ deanG
  25. nice first post - welcome aboard akshobhyavajra! ------------------ deanG
