  1. I listen to Amazon Music very frequently.  I bought a Fire TV Stick 4K for its ability to handle 24/192 hi-res audio for streaming.

     

    Tonight when I fired up Amazon Music I was surprised to see Dolby Atmos shown next to some of the songs listed! I went into the settings and saw a new Spatial Audio setting.  Going in to it, the menu confirmed that my device can play Dolby Atmos.  There is a box that you need to highlight and select Enable Spatial Audio.  After selecting an Atmos track to play I confirmed on my receiver that it is processing an Atmos signal.

     

    I’m listening to some tracks right now, unfortunately at lower volumes because of how late it is but I’m pretty impressed by the mixes I’ve heard so far.  They definitely add a really cool layer of dimension to music!

    Me me me! I have a few years on ya and still have my childhood LEGOs as well as many newer sets. There’s a Star Destroyer and an ATAT on top of my entertainment rack. I have the Trench Run diorama too. It’s among others I’m yet to assemble. 


    I’m not sure what my mom did with my old Lego sets.  I had quite a few of the generic spaceship-type ones and lots of others.

    I thought it would be cool to eventually build a few of them to be on each of my subs since they definitely have the real estate available.

  3. Well, apparently I’m the only one.  😄

     

    Anyway, I ended up buying the Luke Red Five helmet and the Trench Run kits online and should get them in a week or so.  We had a friend’s son who is 10 years old over today and I told him I’m going to need his help putting them together.  He absolutely loves Star Wars and is excited to help out.

    Hello everyone. I am building a "vintage" stereo system for a medium sized room in my house. I have recently acquired a pair of McIntosh MC30 mono amps and a McIntosh C32 preamp. I am considering adding a pair of Klipsch speakers to this system. My question is, would these amps have enough power to operate the Heresy or the Forte, or the Cornwall? Thanks, AlfaAndy


    Watch this video:

     

     

    Then consider the fact that the Klipsch models you listed all have sensitivity ratings of well over 90dB 1W/1M and it’ll answer your question.

    If you want to add lower frequency bass to the Heresy speaker then a subwoofer is a good option. I have had a lot of commercial subs in my time, and with faster horn type speakers found them to be hard to integrate and never been happy to keep them. However if you build a sub speaker with a fast high efficiency and light coned driver and get yourself a sub amp it works very well - if you are orientated for DIY I can post some information across. I have built a 12 and 15 inch version. A friend successfully uses the 12 with his Heresy IIIs and I use a 12 and 15 at different locations in the room and at different phase. They assemble easily if you have a local CNC shop to machine from veneered plywood - just glue together like lego 🙂

     

     


    I agree.  My THT subwoofers are incredible and go perfectly with my Hetesys.

  6. The other day I was sitting in my movie room in the basement and was noticing that my giant THT subwoofers look pretty sad.  I'm 47 and grew up with Legos, although nothing like what's available today.  Being a Star Wars fan, I thought maybe I'd get a couple Star Wars Lego sets and put them on top of my THTs.  I'm not going to go crazy and get the ones with thousands of pieces or anything.  I was looking at possibly something like these:

     

    Imperial TIE Fighter™ 75300 | Star Wars™ | Buy online at the Official LEGO® Shop US

     

    Death Star™ Trench Run Diorama 75329 | Star Wars™ | Buy online at the Official LEGO® Shop US

     

    Luke Skywalker™ (Red Five) Helmet 75327 | Star Wars™ | Buy online at the Official LEGO® Shop US

     

    Anyone else have anything like this in their movie room?

    Bratty kids it is perfectly fine, no Karma penalty whatsoever. Doing dad a favor hauling it away. 
     

    But a widow, or daughter selling her dad’s stuff. That is some major Karma altering stuff right there. I remember back 15 years ago there were a couple of guys who boasting about how they got Khorns for ridiculously low price because she didn’t know what her husband had. I was pretty shocked. The thrill of the deal, making the kill.

     

    Come to think of it, IIRC, I think they are both dead. Hmmmmmm

     

    Yeah I would never take advantage of someone if a death had occurred.  This was a case of the kid had wore out his welcome and just assumed his dad would hang on to his stuff forever.  They were in pretty poor shape, one woofer was torn, the cabinets had been stored upside-down on the concrete floor in the guy's garage for who knows how long, grilles were in poor shape.  I cleaned them up the best I could, replaced the grille cloth, listened to them for a year or so then sold them to a friend for $75.

  8. I don't mean sentimental value or attachment to them.  I'm talking cash value.  I asked my wife the other day if something were to happen to me, what would she do with my speakers, TV, etc?  She said she'd list it all on facebook for free.  I know she was just kidding but it made me think does she really know at least the approximate value of what I have?  I see it fairly frequently that people join here and ask about speakers they've inherited.

    Check the screws that mount the terminal input strip on the back, the input wires to the crossover are connected here as well.  I found out mine were loose and had to be tightened from the inside.  


    This, as well as unscrew and tighten every screw on the crossover input/output terminal.
