  1. Great review! $15.91 with free shipping from www.deepdiscountdvd.com ! http://www.deepdiscountdvd.com/dvd.cfm?itemID=UNI004499
  2. Budget limited at this point. I think I may just wait it out and save up enough to be able to get a bigger sub, possibly the RSW series.
  3. 600 watts PER RF-7 and you're worrying about damaging the speakers? How about damgaing your ears or the foundation of your house?? [] If you look at the Klipsch site they are actually rated at 250 wattsRMS/1000 watts peak. If you've got a capable enough amp (which you certainly do) don't worry about blowing the RF-7s.
  4. Baseball cap, windbreaker type jacket, nice wall plaque. Thanks for looking to us for ideas, Amy! [<)]
  5. I've been looking at getting a sub for my two channel RF-7 setup. Since the Sub-12 has received rave reviews I was wondering if anyone has had a chance to pair one up with RF-7s? Does it match well with them? Does it keep up with the output of them?
  6. Speakers, RF-7s Paid $1000 (Retail $2200) Receiver, Harman/Kardon HK3480 Paid $175 (Retail $500) CD Player, Cambridge Audio D300se Paid $125 (Retail $350) DVD player, Harman/Kardon DVD-31 Paid $76.51 (Retail $349.99)

  8. That is correct, but it won't be considered GT5. GT5 will be released at a later time for the PS3.
  9. Somehow I find the sub 2 second 0-60 time hard to believe, especially since its closer to 1 1/2 seconds. On a related note, I remember reading in a car mag a while back that the fastest cars in the world (the top fuel dragsters, funny cars or whatever they're called) have 0-60 times of .6 seconds and 0-100 times of .9 seconds.
  10. Isn't the warranty on Klipsch for at least 1 year? Best Buy should probably be able to do a receipt lookup for you if you can't find your original one.
  11. When I bought my computer from Best Buy the salesperson spent no less than 20 minutes trying to get me to buy an extended warranty for the computer. I'm really surprised I didn't just walk out and buy elsewhere. Funny thing is, once he finally realized I wasn't going to buy the warranty, he then hauled out the printer that came bundled with the computer and explained why I needed to get the extended warranty on that...this time I didn't say a thing. I just stared at him with a look of disbelief. He got the message. I helped a lady I work with buy a DVD-R camcorder on eBay and this company required you to call them to confirm shipping, payment, etc. Well it turns out they use this as an ideal opportunity to try and push an extended warranty, battery charger, other stuff that they probably marked up 1000%. I had looked at this seller's feedback and several people on there mentioned the high pressure tactics they used to do this. I warned her about it. Didn't help...$300 later she had bought the extended warranty, battery charger and a service plan that gave her one free cleaning every year for 3 years. I couldn't believe it. Funny thing was that she had to break it to her brother that he needed to spend an additional $150 on the camera since they went in on it together.
  12. What it should say is "I'm selling them because when I told my wife I bought them and told her about the circumstances of how they were purchased she told me that I better put them for sale on craigslist or your precious B0se speakers are headed for the fireplace!"
  13. Anytime I ever bought anything audio related I can say without a doubt that I never came away learning anything about the product I was buying. When I went to Ultimate Electronics (Formerly Audio King) here once I had a salesperson talking to me about Sony ES. The store manager came in because he recoginzed me from buying from them before. He asked me how familiar I was with the ES units. I told him I knew a little. He asked if I knew what ES stood for. He asked me if I knew what discrete output meant. He asked me if I knew about the warranty that ES gear has. When I was able to answer those and other questions he said that I knew more about audio then most of his staff did. He then proceeded to offer me a job. [] Glad I didn't take it, because a year later they closed up shop. Oh, at Circuit City a few years back I actually overheard a male salesperson telling a female customer that the Brand X receiver she was looking at would play louder because the volume knob went up to 20 and the Brand Y receiver volume only went up to 10. NO LIE. I think its a good testimony showing how companies are severely lacking when it comes to educating their employees. Where I work I have received on the job training, correspondence course training and also workshop training. Let me tell you, if someone comes into my store and wants to know anything about a Rolex watch, they will leave with all the information they ever wanted and then some!
  14. Yes it can. Example, the synthesizer at the beginning of "Hard Habit to Break" by Chicago. For years I never knew that each note contained a bit of vibrato that I never heard until I listened to the song on my RF-7s. Also, "Take Me Home" by Phil Collins. The triangle or whatever instrument that is playing during the chorus never struck me until I heard it on RF-7s. Speaker positioning will affect some of this, but the quality of the speaker definitely does too.
  15. You can also do a second chance offer to the person who was below him in bidding.
  16. I'd make sure the speaker wires and jumpers in the back of the speaker are connected tightly. Also it wouldn't hurt to *very carefully* remove the horn and check that the internal wires aren't loose. I had a wire on the lower woofer come loose when I was driving my RF-7s home. The ends connecting the woofer (and tweeter I'd imagine) are not soldered on, only pressed on. I'm glad that the wire wasn't touching the other wire or bye-bye amp!
  17. Man that's a great deal on a great sub...(trying to think of what I could sell on eBay to pay for the sub...[] )
  18. I bought my RF-7s for $1000 on craigslist. They were 1 year old and they do have some cabinet issues but they sound better than anything I've ever heard.
  19. Spill the beans...how much did you pay? There's no policy on here against discussing price paid for gear..especially when you got a great deal! I personally have a H/K 3480 120wattsx2 running my RF-7s. What I found in upgrading to a higher wattage amp is not that it plays louder but it sounds better at the same volume levels. With the RF-7s, more watts usually means more bass too. Enjoy your new speakers! I've had mine since January and have enjoyed upgrading my components to match the quality of my speakers.
  20. To quote the Klipsch manual for the Sub-10: "LINE IN/LFE - This input is filtered by the built in LOW-PASS (LP) crossover and is designed as a general purpose input for the subwoofer. It accepts the LFE signal output of your digital surround electronics." So, it sounds like the low-pass filter will work on the sub and you'll have to set it at 100hz or whatever setting that you'd like to. As an alternative method of hooking up the sub, you can get an RCA cable Y-splitter so that both the left and right inputs on the sub are hooked up. You will generally experience a noticeable increase in sound output by doing this.
  21. My wife bought me an LCD touchscreen universal programmable remote from Brookstone for our anniversary this year and I love it. It will control virtually anything that is operated by a remote control. Very easy to use, blue backlit screen that makes the screen very readable in dim light. It has replaced my TV, DVD, CD and receiver remotes. It can be programmed for 8 different devices and each button is customizable.
  22. Only $9.08 with free shipping from www.deepdiscountdvd.com! http://www.deepdiscountdvd.com/dvd.cfm?itemID=WBD037263
  23. Cool. I was just putzing around partsexpress.com tonight and ran across some banana plugs on clearance. I very, very rarely ever move my stuff around or do anything with the wires. Thanks all!
  24. I don't think he's saying that Denon+Klipsch=bad, but rather that Denon+Sunfire=even better. Sunfire is several notches above most mainstream audio brands.
