  1. As others have said, the hum could be a build quality issue, it could be a ground loop issue as well. As a test, try a cheater plug, which lifts the ground. If the hum goes away, then you have a ground loop issue to solve. The cheater plug is not the solution if the hum goes away, as the amp won't be grounded, but it is a cheap way to find hum problems and address them.
  2. Kinda CF4 build.

    Did a quick search on EBay across the pond. How far are you from Italy. Perhaps, the old Tangent speakers will work for you until you build up the green again or finish a build. https://www.ebay.it/itm/KLIPSCH-TANGENT-T-50-Casse-diffusori-alta-efficienza-98-dB-radiatore-passivo/162929027651?hash=item25ef53aa43:g:4pUAAOSw2BxafIvH
  3. RIP Stephen Hawking

    He was also a fan of poker it seems, with the right folk around the table.
  4. How about a little Lepai amp and tone controls on this baby too. https://www.parts-express.com/lepai-lp-2020ti-digital-hi-fi-audio-mini-class-d-stereo-amplifier-with-power-supply--310-3000
  5. what other klipsch speakers are on your local Craigslist?. Any Forte's or Chorus for instance?
  6. CF4's on The Bay

    Yeah, I noticed that after. He must not have noticed the shipping charge that posted on his ad as well. Most likely a version 3, from the looks of them.
  7. CF4's on The Bay

    Shipping is offered on this pair and at a great price too, $129 bucks.
  8. imaging ?

    My previous speakers were from a company called Audio Physic, the Tempo 3's. When I first walked into the audio shop and had a listen, I was blown away by how the speakers completely disappeared within the sound field. From a visual standpoint, it looked like they were just sitting there doing nothing, yet the room was filled with sound and great imaging as well. I wanted that. I later found that to be a design attribute of the speaker line and a goal of the designer. Took awhile to find a pair on Audiogon, at a price that I was happy with. Enjoyed them for several years until the desire for horns arose and sold them for the Epic CF3's. They too, do a decent disappearing act, but not at the level of the Tempos, but the effortless slam factor of the Epics more than make up for that.

  10. Show us your great photography thread!

    Interesting idea. You will need a bit of cushion and a headrest, if you plan to sit a spell.
  11. Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    The highs listed during the summer months are not accurate nearer the ocean, I would subtract 7 to 10 degrees from those stated.

    I spent quite a few years in upstate New York, where I first discovered the Adirondack chair. Loved them. The guy who invented it, a genius. He basically wanted a chair that one can set ones drink on, eliminating the need for a table, then went about and built it and a legend was born. There were none in California when i got back and I thought about introducing them somehow and then the plastic variety started to appear everywhere. Here are a couple of mine, sitting on the other side of my Klipsch speaks, where my woman and I at times, have morning coffee, or an afternoon nap, or...

    All great points above. ^^^

    Lol, I had to look that up. ^^^ I wrote that mainly for a bit of a laugh. I dig the location where you live. Must have a hell of a view!
  16. When I want ideas, I often look at the virtual systems on audiogon for something that captures my eye and gives directions to explore. https://systems.audiogon.com How does something like this look? https://systems.audiogon.com/systems/5103
  17. Crown D-45 schematic

    I hear that, an amp should not melt, staying within its own specs. that is just a tad weak. It is cool that you have Jubes going at home. Enjoy.
  18. 2 Channel/amp

    This could be something worth exploring. https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=27222
  19. Crown D-45 schematic

    If you want a Crown amp that you will have a very hard time pushing beyonds its limits, I would recommend looking into the Crown K2 amp. Putting out 500 watts a side at 8ohms. I use one at home as a stereo amp and am quite happy with it. https://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/msg/d/crown-k2-amplifier/6475181113.html
  20. Class D Crown vs. Hypex nCore

    I too, have been reading about the Ncore amps, and because I prefer the simplicity of a one box design, find this integrated amp sold by Nord, interesting. https://www.nordacoustics.co.uk/nord-one-int-a-integrated-amplifier
  21. I saw that. That is a great deal. The KV-4 alone, is worth that price.
  22. Permanent wanted: CF-4 rev. 1 or other CF

    Hey Vasu, have you heard any of the Epic speakers as of yet?
