  1. No doubt - A pair in very good condition just sold here for less than $2000. ------------------ deanG
  2. Why not use the search utility and type in a speaker in question? You'll have plenty to read and you'll save the rest of us keystrokes. ------------------ deanG This message has been edited by deang on 02-28-2002 at 10:48 PM
  3. rotflol - what a great thread. The timing was perfect - i really needed that. ------------------ deanG
  4. I'm so happy you're happy HornEd. It's good you took the package deal (with the Belle) or those beasts would be sitting in my house! It looks like buying these is a major event in your household bordering on a religious experience!! With me, it would have been more of a novelty as - I pretty much just wanted to experiment with them. I'm not sure my sissy ears could have handled the pressure You already have a great HT room. Why not just concentrate on seeing how good you can make 2 K-horns sound? Dean, This message has been edited by deang on 02-28-2002 at 10:07 AM
  5. whatchusmokinboy? ------------------ deanG
  6. This board is the true 'asylum' ------------------ deanG
  7. "...very, very clear sounding." yep ------------------ deanG
  8. I should try that. "Sweetheart - you know I built this nice Reference system for you and the kids. Now I think it's time you let me build one for me. It may necessitate getting rid of the furniture, and you and the kids will have to watch T.V. in the kitchen because...well...these K-horns I'm getting are kinda big. Not too bad though - you'll get used to them, and after a while - you might even start to like them. I may even let you set a knick-knack or two on them. Why are you mad? I don't get it! You're so sensitive!" Actually Horn - I'm aware of your situation at home and I'm only kidding around. But it's tough to feel sorry for a guy that has stacked SVS subs and 3 sets of Legends!

  9. After 3 days I finally received a response to my email: Dean: Thank you for your inquiry. The MSRP is $8,200. Sincere Regards, Ronnie Hook ------------------ deanG
  10. my cubes are bigger than your cubes ------------------ deanG
  11. yes...hold out and buy one used on AudiogoN - I see one about once a week. www.audiogon.com ------------------ deanG
  12. Atom, We have been beating this subject to death over the last several weeks. Use the 'search' utility here on the site and search on the words - tube tubes triode superamp jolida ASL To give good advice we need more info from you: what speakers do you use what music do you listen to how loud do you want it to go how much are you willing to spend ------------------ deanG
  13. i think he's O.K. on 1/21/02 his first post was to say hi, liked his speakers, and was looking forward to learning off of this site. He failed however to let everyone know what kind of speakers he had. Part of everyone's response was asking him what he had. He came back thanking everyone for the warm reception and answered everyone by telling us he own the K-horns. He then tells everyone about these other speakers - maybe because he knows you can't buy Heritage new anymore right now. He doesn't seem like the type that hangs out - just pops in every once in a while. I wouldn't get to excited. As far as this other speaker goes. We might send email letting him know how tacky his advertising is - and would probably gain more loyal customers by telling the truth and giving credit where credit is due. ------------------ deanG
  14. I use my HD-600's with my portable Panasonic and it actually gets fairly loud. ------------------ deanG
  15. i can't believe the negativity regarding Bose on this board everyone knows the Bose Wave Radio rules ------------------ deanG
  16. Yes, and so maybe less is more So could it be? that a wire and pot might be more accurate than a preamp that weighs as much as a fridge? ------------------ deanG
  17. guess I'll be enjoying the simpler system thanks for the education mdeneen! ------------------ deanG
  18. Agreed. It was tacky of them to write it up that way. Like it's some kind of new revelation in speaker design. Time for Klipsch to get those lawyers busy - ------------------ deanG
  19. I sent them e-mail and left a message on their answering machine I bet they're expensive ------------------ deanG
  20. Oh crap - it's a two way K-horn that crosses over at 340HZ and you don't need a corner. Where's my checkbook This message has been edited by deang on 02-25-2002 at 10:30 AM
  21. hmmm - so besides the additional switching functions - what would the addition of an AE-3 really get me? ------------------ deanG
  22. Here is the response from the fellow who just sold me the Superamp regarding the volume control. "I wanted to be able to drive the amp either from a preamp or via direct from cd input. Because there is only one set of inputs on the amp and because I needed to control line levels when connected directly, the volume control was installed. It is a passive control that operates on the input jacks and allows you to control the levels when driving direct from the cd's inputs. Or, by maxing out the volume control on the amp, you can drive it via a preamp and let the preamp control levels. All of the burn in time was done via the direct cd to amp configuration which minimizes the level of coloration that gets introduced (my opinion)." What he is describing here is 'unbuffered' then - right? ------------------ deanG
  23. Colin said: "They are as competently clinical as a nurse, but without the tender loving care of a good woman." That has got to be one of the most profound, accurate statements regarding solid state I have ever heard. I read that and immediately related to what you meant. ------------------ deanG
  24. mdeneen said - "When you simply place a Volume Control pot (passive preamp) in the circuit, you have created an uncontrolled R-C filter, where the pot is the resistance, and the cable is the capacitance. If the resistance is high, you will get a high end rolloff, if the resistance is low, you will distort the source feeding it" This is interesting and yet makes me ask why so many integrated amps do just exactlty that - like Jolida and Creek Audio. The AE-25 Superamp I'm getting this week has a volume control. Strange. ------------------ deanG
  25. anything in a car ------------------ deanG
