    my head hurts reading that

     - and it should, that’s the idea. Talk, or write, enough mumbo-jumbo and while you’re scratching your head deep in thought,  your wallet is being picked clean.

    what's wrong with the way we've been doing for DECADES?

    I’d be unloading those butt ugly KHorns and monster Jubes as soon as possible. Otherwise - it’s pennies on the dollar - . 
    Hi, I’m Rich - I’m here to help -

    The crossovers certainly need to be updated with new capacitors.  Recommend you reach out to Michael Crites, or order new good quality capacitors and do the work yourself.  Dayton Precision Audio capacitors, Sonicaps and Jantzen capacitors are all good choices.

    Apparently you didn’t see the memo - JEM is The go to for Klipsch crossovers - 😉

    The tube crisis is manufactured.   JJ can easily supply the current demand. For those that are in need, you're being played.   

     

    JJ is shipping but $ are still x3 what they were this time last year.  Wait.

    A manufactured crises in these trying times? Surely - you jest

    need to delete that audition list... auditions aren't need for a speaker that isn't made any longer.

    Sure they are - keeps driving the mystique and prices ^^^^^. And the more unobtainable the continued mystique. The continued “want”. The continued price escalation - . It’s a viscous circle -

    Time to stir the pot in here or what???  

    Hey, I tried to stir the pot - closed two threads and had the infamous “Oops” you cannot access this topic” reply. Maybe I tried too hard - or so some thought

  7. Use these absurd lead times to your advantage. Order your nice, new comfy recliner or couch and a new refrigerator for the cold beverages you’ll want as you listen to your new amp. Everything should arrive in the next 12-16 months.  
    And who says a well thought out plan won’t come together?

    I always wanted to try the Benchmark AHB2 with La Scala’s. I bet that’s a great combo. 

    Distortion levels on the combined LS and Benchmark will be astonishing low - . The Benchmark is currently handling Jubilee duties and it ain’t too shabby with those either -

    This is my first post in this forum. I am a dyed in the wool tube guy but I’m looking for a back up amp and I’m thinking about a Schiit Aegir. Does anyone have any experience with this combo?

    There may not be many with the exact combination you’re wanting opinions hence the few comments. I’ve heard a lot of shite but not the Schitt you’re referring. I can say I thoroughly enjoy my LS along with several other Klipsch models with good solid state - First Watt F3, J2 and M2; Benchmark and even Hypex nCore’s. I think you’d be floored how good the LS will sound with high quality solid state.

    In fact several First Watt offerings and/or the Benchmark might have no intention of remaining a “back up” amp.

    yeah make that a  Hemi 6.2 Liters , Sold......, new Jeep coming in on Monday with a  V6  .

    Being kind of a Mopar fan - the 6.2 is the SC Hellcat based engine, I owned one.

    They made a 6.1 naturally aspirated SRT years back. So for current V8 gas it’s the 5.7, have one in a 300, 6.4 and 6.2. If you’re getting the V6 Jeep don’t expect it to break any records mileage wise, it’s gets no better than the 5.7 V8 in the new 300. We have both.
