  1. Josh - don't buy new. There is just no reason to. The deals on used equipment are simply incredible. I realize you have a minimal investment in the Heresys -- and from your point of view it probably seems to make sense to not go completely overboard with your front end investment. Why not just go with some used ASL stuff just to give you an idea of what tubes can do? If you like it and decide you might want to upgrade -- you can easily sell it for what you paid for it. There are several other options as well. If you don't want to go with the retro look -- you can pick up an Anthem Amp1 and Pre2L (has remote) for about $1200. It's a great sound -- just not as detailed as the triode offerings. Whatever you do - it's hard to go completely wrong. Personally -- I will never go back to solid state. ------------------ S Frontiers/Anthem CD-1f>s> Cary AE-25 SuperAmpf>s> Sonic Frontiers Line 1f>s> Marantz DV-7010f>s> Klipsch LF-10f>s> Klipsch RF7'sf>s> MIT/Monsterf>s> Toshiba 36"f>s> Inside every small problem is a large problem struggling to get outf>s>c>-- 2nd Law of Blissful Ignorancef>s>c>

  5. It's possible they were 'B' stock -- but without the serial numbers there is no way to know. Post the serial numbers and maybe someone will be able to help you. Still a great deal though.

  6. The main difference between mine and the $1400 version is that mine is still 15 watts instead of 20. The previous owner ordered the standard version, but had them perform the oil and film cap upgrade, install the volume control knob, and send along a Kimber power cord.f>s> It has just the two inputs (L/R) -- so you would need a preamp if you wanted to use more sources than a CD player. The inputs are very nice. They are Kimber single ended inputs and are very solid -- not like the chinzy, gold plated inputs you usually see on audio equipment.f>s> I do not remember with absolute certainty - but I think this amp with the mods and power cord was almost $1500. I would sure hate to part with that power cord -- I'm sure it's the reason the amp sounds so good.f>s> ------------------ S Frontiers/Anthem CD-1f>s> Cary AE-25 SuperAmpf>s> Sonic Frontiers Line 1f>s> Marantz DV-7010f>s> Klipsch LF-10f>s> Klipsch RF7'sf>s> MIT/Monsterf>s> Toshiba 36"f>s> Inside every small problem is a large problem struggling to get outf>s>c> -- 2nd Law of Blissful Ignorancef>s>c> This message has been edited by deang on 04-02-2002 at 02:36 PM
  7. Actually, the full blown version is $2000. You can also buy these from Upscale Audio. The following link shows you the pricing options. http://www.upscaleaudio.com/ These amps are not switchable between pentode and triode. They come wired in triode only. Each step up gives you a little more power. With the efficiency of the Heresys, and the fact that you don't want to bankrupt yourself -- why not just buy the base model for $1200? Or -- since I want to upgrade to the DJH version -- why not buy mine for $975. It comes with the upgraded oil filled caps, Kimber power cord, and has a built in volume control so you can run it CD direct. You can also use a preamp -- you just have to turn the volume control knob all the over. ------------------ S Frontiers/Anthem CD-1f>s> Cary AE-25 SuperAmpf>s> Sonic Frontiers Line 1f>s> Marantz DV-7010f>s> Klipsch LF-10f>s> Klipsch RF7'sf>s> MIT/Monsterf>s> Toshiba 36"f>s> Inside every small problem is a large problem struggling to get outf>s>c>-- 2nd Law of Blissful Ignorancef>s>c> This message has been edited by deang on 04-02-2002 at 12:27 PM
  8. I'm far from an expert but common sense would dictate that the modifications often discussed do indeed make this speaker a pleasure to own -- how else can we explain those who refuse to listen to anything else.f>s> ------------------ S Frontiers/Anthem CD-1f>s> Cary AE-25 SuperAmpf>s> Sonic Frontiers Line 1f>s> Marantz DV-7010f>s> Klipsch LF-10f>s> Klipsch RF7'sf>s> MIT/Monsterf>s> Toshiba 36"f>s> Inside every small problem is a large problem struggling to get outf>s>c>-- 2nd Law of Blissful Ignorancef>s>c> This message has been edited by deang on 04-02-2002 at 11:19 AM
  9. nice review Josh I just bought the Dennis Hadd (Cary Audio) modified AE-25 off of Audiogon for $1000.

  21. i just think you are partial to Bose because you haven't heard K-horns yet The 901 is the only speaker Bose makes that is even remotely listenable. It's produces a nifty effect. The 901 needs a good equalizer. There are no highs at all. You will also need a good sub, because there is little output below 50Hz. With a good equalizer and subwoofer, the 901 would do pretty good I think. The downside with the 901 is that since all the drivers are full range - intermodulation distortion is very high at realistic sound pressure levels. The Klipschorns would terribly embarrass the 901's in clarity, dynamics, realism, total output -- and all this, with very low levels of distortion. Colin is right -- it is apples and oranges here. Also, keep in mind that you are comparing a $1500 pair of speakers to a $6000 pair of speakers. If you want 80% of what the K-horn gives you at 1/3 of the price -- get some Klipsch RF7's. ------------------ dean
  22. i printed out this read -- it's great my kids are homeschooled and are currently studying economics -- i have something 'extra' for them to read this week ------------------ dean
  23. just relax and listen like you usually do couple of hours a day for a week is all it takes ------------------ dean
  24. Sorry I got testy Sinatra - I was out of line Hey Ears - having heard the Cornwalls and owning the RF7's -- how would you describe the differences? As far as comments to the effect that one kind of speaker is better suited for HT and another for music -- well, I'm not buying into that. A speaker should be accurate. If it is -- it will do both equally well. ------------------ dean
  25. well...they will produce more bass - but they won't sound better overall you need to start saving your money and get some SVS-ultras or a Klipsch RSW-15 what amp are you using with your RF7's? ------------------ dean
