  1. I don't do ANY business with them anymore. I'll save the story but they get no respect or money from me. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  2. Dave A's new tweeters with the B&C drivers have been a game changer in my speakers. A few years ago I went nuts rolling tubes. As far as 12AX7 preamp tubes, none of the new production tubes could compete with my NOS tubes. The JJ's came close but no cigar. The new production tubes had a lot in common....a warm overtone that I was quicky able to identify as a fake, artificial type of warmth compared to NOS. This was with stock Klipsch tweeters and titanium diaphrams. Dave's tweeters are on the hot side (to my ears) but a little EQ at 5khz and their ability to play smooth and detailed more than make up for it. So yesterday I decided to give the JJ's another shot. I was really surprised how good they sounded. Warmth that had none of that fake artificial quality I heard with the stock tweeters. So now I want to go back and try all the new production 12AX7's I bought all over again. I did pop some Sovtek LPS-1's in there because they get a lot of praise it seems.....but not from me. So I'm curious who here uses a new production 12ax7 that they would consider to have more warmth than other 12AX7's? Thanks! Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

    What I Got Today!

    Got one of those fancy (expensive!) Tempur pedic cooling pillows. I had to laugh at the box it was shipped in. You could obviously see by the writing on the box that it was a pillow so these guys must have taken all their frustations out on it. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

    KLF 20's

    Yeah at one point I had 20's and 30's in the same room/same time. I thought the 20's had a sweeter sound with a better/punchier bass. Fast forward to upgrading the 30's as noted in the 'Ultimate Upgrades' thread on the 30's......the 30's sound like 20's on steroids. Bigger, better everything. The Ciare 12" woofers gave them tighter 'KLF-20 like bass' and like I said.....on steroids. They excel with low powered ss or tubes playing delicate music or high powered ss playing the heaviest stuff you can throw at them. They love it and IMO probably where they shine the brightest. They do not sound like a tall, skinny speaker. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

    Is he gonna be at the pilgrimage? Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  11. I totally agree. A very sophisticated sounding amp on Klipsch speakers. Warm, laid back, full sounding midrange but very detailed at the same time.
  12. I have two Vidars I'm considering selling. I bought them brand new from Schiit back in December. They have low hours and are like new and sound/perform great. For my needs, I'm hanging onto the Aegir. To save you a few bucks I'll sell them for $500 bucks each. Both are black. If interested, I'll post some pics later. Thanks!

  13. I had a restored 2230 but sold it. Shoulda kept it. That unit sounded nice. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  14. Very possible. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
  15. Lotta variables at play. Been there done that. Be patient, you've got some really nice speakers there. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
