    So far so good! Its amazing what 35-40 watts can do with an incredibly efficient speaker. The 5 decibel increase in sensitivity over my previous RF-25s is huge. At 9 o'clock on the volume knob the RF-7s play as loud as the RF-25s did at 10-11 o'clock. Dynamics are excellent. I think having a powered sub and the high-pass crossover set at 100hz helps the 730 quite a bit. I know the RF-7s have a pretty low impedence dip. Bass is incredibly tight and musical. I re-positioned my subwoofer because I was getting some pretty nasty bass cancellation at first. I now have it facing the right speaker instead of directly at me. I'd experiment with it facing the wall but I know my wife would hate the look of the back panel of the sub being visible. Its a wonder she let me get the RF-7s in the first place!
  2. What I noticed when I went from a Sony receiver to my HK 730 is that voices seemed to sound a lot more natural. Actually all frequencies seemed more analog, less digital sounding.

    70% off at Deep Discount DVD. http://www.deepdiscountdvd.com/studio.cfm?mainStudioid=3 I've bought several DVDs from them before...amazing deals!
  4. Was it working before? Was it an old sub hooked up to a new receier? Could be a lot of things. Is the sub now hooked up to the correct output on the receiver? Was the gain or crossover level on the sub turned all the way down accidentally? The hum could be interference from other components or power cables, etc.
  5. Well, I must be in the other 12% then. Just yesterday my wife said "When have I ever told you that you couldn't get something that you wanted?" I love her!
  6. Haha! I had almost exactly the same observation where I work! In the corner of where our jewelry cases meet there are wedge-shaped areas that we have a plants in. I keep thinking of a Klipschorn whenever I look at them. Anything would be an improvement over our cheesy in-ceiling drivers we have currently. [W]
  7. http://www.office-humour.co.uk/pop.cfm?link=http://www.wantonline.com/blog/index.cfm/2006/1/10/International-Geek-Song This is based on the true story of my life. Hilarious!!!
  8. Their song "Don't Follow" is one of my favorite songs.
  9. A vertical Cornwall is one where the horn is sitting vertically when the speaker itself is sitting upright like normal. But when you tip the cabinet on its side the horn is then horizontal, making it ideal as a center channel since the horizontal placement of the horn will be the same as the front mains.
  10. Denon DCD-590 Lambda SLC CD Player. I'm curious if anyone has any experience with the 'Lambda' or 'SLC' portion of the player? The only information I have is that the Lambda SLC part is a Super Linear Converter and that it has two of them. The limited information I have about it sounds promising. Well, anything would be an improvement over my el cheapo Magnavox DVD player that is currently playing my CDs. [:$] [+o(] Found a little info on it...s/n is 103dB, separation 100dBdynamic range 97dB. Are these decent numbers on paper? {Edit} Forgot to mention that I won it on eBay today. Looking forward to getting it! [H]
  11. If your Denon has pre-amp outputs you could hook those up to the main inputs of an amplifier. Using a separate preamp & amp is the recommended hookup for RF-7s.
  12. Or you could buy my mint RF-25s for $450 shipped!
  13. Don't waste your money on expensive cables. Your amp and DVD/CD player will make a million times more difference in your sound quality. The best thing you can do for sound is make sure the speaker placement is done correctly. Follow the suggestions in the manual but feel free to experiment as well.
  14. If you think about it, it actually could accomplish two things: #1 - A potential buyer with a limited knowledge of Klipsch might see them and have a ton of expendable income and think they are getting a great deal. If no one does the buy-it-now, big deal. If someone does, CHA-CHING for the seller! #2 - Someone looking to bid on them might be willing to put in a higher final bid because after all, the seller is technically asking $7999 for them, so if I get them for $5000 I'm getting a steal! Its all in the marketing.
  15. Probably because someone already posted about it a couple weeks ago.
  16. Obviously they didn't want the sale that bad. If you would have stuck around the store long enough you probably would have got them to go down to $1600. Must have been some rookies on the job that night. If you're able to finance them at $1600, that is a very good deal.
  17. So your account got hijacked? Not fun!
  18. No, i'm pretty sure he's talking about using a Y splitter to connect both the L & R inputs.
  19. Keep em coming! One problem I also had with my old Sony 200 disc changer is that it would skip pretty easily when the volume was turned up. My Magnavox DVD player has never done that. Why is that?
  20. I believe that with the LFE input it relies on your receiver for the crossover point. If you have an older receiver or amp that doesn't have a LFE output or its own built-in sub crossover then the regular line-in would be the way to go. Does your sub's manual have any recommendation for hookup?
  21. There's a digital input on your sub?? [:^)]
  22. Well, the average speaker is marked up around 100% of dealer cost. So a speaker that retails at $750 costs the dealer about $375. If they sell it for $550 they're still making $175. You'd be saving about 27% off retail, which isn't too huge of a discount to make you worried if its legit. Sometimes the product on eBay is new-in-box that a dealer has just had laying around for a long time. Better to sell it at a discount than have it taking up room in the warehouse. I work in sales and from time to time I have told fellow salespeople "Better to make something than make nothing."
  23. Well, guess I can now change the "not mine" to MINE! Picked them up a week ago. Corners were a little banged up but that's ok I'm never going to sell them and they sound incredible! BTW, took just a wee bit of convincing my wife! []
  24. As long as its from someone with a decent feedback rating I don't see how you could do wrong. Except for the fact that the speaker probably won't be under warranty.
  25. What CD player do you recommend in the $100-200 range? Can be an older model, single disc, multiple disc, etc. I just need something inexpensive that will sound great on my RF-7s. My current audio source is a $40 Magnavox DVD player that I got for free. [:$] I use a 10 year old Sony 200 disc changer as a CD storage unit since the audio on the Magnavox unit is much better than the Sony. I went to Ultimate Electronics and the guy there recommended Denon. Any other brands? My receiver is a vintage HK 730 so digital outputs and SACD won't apply. Thanks!! (EDIT) The reason why I want a new player is that the Magnavox is very bright, especially with sibilant sounds. I need something much warmer. Right now I have the treble turned way down most of the time I listen to music loud.
