  1. On eBay price means nothing until 3 seconds are left in the auction.
  2. The only amp I've heard with my Forte II speakers is my harman / kardon HK3480 2 channel amp. Jay on here has an HK3480 hooked up ro RF-83 speakers and really likes it. $500 retail but I bought one that was only a couple months old for $175 on eBay. I like it because it has both pre-amp ins and outs and sub-outs. As long as the source material is good, it sounds very smooth and powerful with the Fortes. 120 watts x 2, high current design.

  4. As long as it sounds good to you, that's what counts. And remember, just because you own a pair of speakers now doesn't mean you'll own them forever. This coming from someone who bought RF-25s, sold them for RF-7s and now has Forte II speakers all within about a year's time.
  5. Speaking of way too much time on their hands, what exactly were you searching for on the net when you found this?? []
  6. You might scratch the top of the sub unless you put some felt or something in between the stands and the sub. Also you might get some vibration noise if the volume is turned up loud. Otherwise if doing that helps the bookshelves be at ear level while listening, go ahead!
  7. Nice choice! What other speakers are you running?
  8. They're only an hour away from me. I'd be interested in giving them a listen!
  9. I still haven't seen either. [:$] If I ever get that new 56" HDTV I think it will be the first movie I rent!
  10. Chatted with a few people at work today and I might have a good lead on someone buying my old TV. I hope it all works out!
  11. Its a rare instance that an amplifier is damaged by a speaker hooked up to it. I'd say 99 times out of 100 its the speaker that's going to be damaged. Probably the thing that would most commonly damage a receiver is positive and negative wires touching each other either at the receiver's speaker output terminals or at the speaker's input terminals. Yes, you are getting too involved. [] Your RB-81 speakers are incredibly efficient compared to most bookhelf speakers. As long as you're feeding them quality watts (of which Yamaha is well-received by many on here) you'll be fine. If you had a 5 watt or a 5000 watt amp it would be a different story.
  12. Cool, thanks for all the responses! One probably dumb question is, does anyone know if this TV will display 1080i over component cables? My DVR is a HD decoder and I have component cables hooked to my current Mitsubishi HDTV and it displays 1080i very well. I won't be utilitizing the 1080p function right away at all, so it doesn't really matter to me that it even has it. It is nice to have it for future use, though. I also did see how some of the older HDxx96 TVs had some problems but it seems that the current HDxx97 series aren't experiencing the same issues. If I have time tonight I'm going to run across to the Best Buy that's right across the street from where I work and give it another look if they have one. I literally only spent about 30 seconds looking at it last night, and the Best Buy that I was at last night is about an hour away from me so I don't really want to go back to that one if I don't have to.
  13. I went to a Best Buy today in response to their 36 months no interest on any home theater purchase $999 and up. In their ad I saw that they had a Toshiba 56" DLP TV for $1499, except that it was 720p resolution. On the other side of the display was a JVC tv, also 56" except it was 1080p. Regular price was $2249, its on sale for $1749 plus it comes with a free killer-looking stand valued at $299. The picture looked really good from what I could tell. I didn't have a lot of time to spend with it since my wife caught up with me and wanted to go to supper. We went back after supper but I only had about 5 minutes to look at it again since they were closing. The model is JVC HD56FN97. Otherwise does anyone have any other suggestions for a sub $2000 TV?
  14. They are for hooking up the sub in case your receiver/amplifier doesn't have a low level RCA sub or LFE output.
  15. Pretty major toe-in here with the horns aiming directly at me. With a blindfold you'd swear I had a center channel!
  16. Unfortunately in our current society bigger isn't always better in most people's eyes when it comes to speakers. I'd bet that 9 out of 10 custom home theater installations in new houses being built in the last 5 years utilized in-wall or in-ceiling speakers. Try stuffing a KLF30 in a wall! The pair in my sig that are my best friend's were purchased by him for $500 a few months ago. They were within an hour's drive so shipping was $0. They are in about as mint condition as you could possibly get a used speaker for. They really do sound incredible, don't they?
  17. I'm really curious as to how they sound. Anyone have any thoughts?
  18. Enjoy that 12! Make sure to spend some time with setting the phase, gain, crossover and also the physical location of the sub in the room.
  19. I wouldn't set any to large considering which ones you have. Bookshelves and surround speakers typically would be set to small.
  20. Don't forget to check places like eBay and Audiogon for used pairs of RS-3 speakers. I'm sure that many people will be selling their previous generation speakers now that the new reference line is out.
  21. Mark, I wouldn't take offense @ that. Brand new ones (cherry, black, and possibly maple) can be had for 1K now being a discontinued model. I forget the name of the company, but they advertise on ebay and are out of Nevada. They post at 1299, obo (I wouldnt' offer them a grand if I weren't serious, because that will more than likely buy them including shipping). Would it make any difference that these speakers are broken in and the new owner wouldn't have to go through all the hassle of doing it themselves? [] Kidding of course, but I think I can still get closer to $1000 for them.
  22. Sorry but I stopped eating at McDonald's ever since I saw the movie Super Size Me. Its been about 2 years since I've eaten at one!
