Forum Veteran (4/9)



  1. oliverweagle's first photo shows the serial numbers - 17S230 which makes these Walnut lacquer Cornwalls (C-WL) 1978 vintage. Very nice looking Cornwalls!
  2. I have used Terry Dewick to service some of my Mac Gear, he is indeed very knowledgeable and very reasonably priced. He does good work and does it quickly. I have no experience with the guys at www.artsrestoration.com but it sure looks like that would be a good place to go at least for cosmetic work. Thanks for the link, it may just come in handy!
  3. Welcome to the forum scottielover! This thread may be the thread to which Frzninvt is referring.
  4. When I said: "My current tube amps are able to drive my Klipschorns above 90dB and sound pleasant to me (and to everyone else who has heard them)." I should have said my current 2A3 amps, my Moondogs sounded great also. I would have loved to be able to keep both sets of SETs but I just don't have that kind of dough.
  5. Hi Trader, FWIW, I have tried many tube amps and a few SS amps with my Klipsch speakers. Of the tube amps, one of my favorites is the 6BQ5, I've owned 2 6BQ5 based amps, one single ended and one push pull. I also really like the KT66 type tube, I have a pair of KT66 monoblock amps that I have been listening to for the last few weeks, they are my newest amps and I am currently on the lookout for a quad of 350B tubes to try in the amps as they are supposed to be excellent. My favorite tube is the 2A3 though, I have had two different designs of 2A3 SET monoblocks and they are my favorite. I would love to hear a pair of 2A3 PP amps also, but I'll always own a pair of 2A3 SET amps. As always, YMMV, but these are my favorites at this point in time.

It sounds horrible that way and would make anyone want to leave the room. But it's not because of the volume level, it's the distortion level. Playing something 90dB on Klipschorns sounds pleasant. ---------------- "Playing something 90dB on Klipschorns sounds pleasant" is another opinion. I have had tube amps driving my K-horns that did not sound pleasant (to me) at 90dB. My current tube amps are able to drive my Klipschorns above 90dB and sound pleasant to me (and to everyone else who has heard them). YMMV of course.
  7. ---------------- Paul parrot wrote: It can be extremely important, in a bad way, if the amp is low powered. Then, if you try to listen at a decent volume, not extremely loud by any means, just decent, you'll be into compression and clipping. ---------------- Decent volume, extremely loud (or not) are entirely subjective...IOW a matter of opinion. My wife often asks me to turn the music down because it is too loud, this is in her opinion of course, not mine!
  8. 3dzapper, what was the issue preventing you connecting here?
  9. I don't understand either, Mike. I probably shouldn't have posted what I did, but all of a sudden Erik can't connect to this site. I really hope Erik can't log on here for some other reason, IMHO he was a valued contributor and definitely not here to exploit the forum members, as some have intimated.
  10. Erik seems to be a casualty of Klipsch sifting out the 'chaff' from the other posters at the forum. Erik can't seem to log into the BB anymore. I'm guessing it was his cavalier attitude toward helping others by trying to line his pockets...by doing stuff for forum friends for free. Or maybe it is because I actually offered to pay him for repair work that he has done for me. I did pass on your comments to Erik, Leo, and is happy that you are confirming what he has heard in his amps.

I also think there will be at least two more people who switch from hi-pow to lo-pow amps. Everyone's situation is different. Each should be able to determine for themselves what they like best in their system without ruling out a topology simply because someone else tells them it won't work. For some reason, some folks actually like both! Imagine that!
  12. I am not trying to intimate that you are, 3dzapper. I'm just bowing out of the 'competition' voluntarily...I'd rather not be considered.
  13. Sorry I'll try to be more specific: ---------------- On 7/22/2004 6:09:51 PM paulparrot wrote: What kind of whim would be satisfied by playing something through an underpowered and distortion-laden amp? Masochism? ---------------- "Underpowered and distortion laden amp" is your opinion, not fact.

  15. I would like to withdraw my request and rationale for acquiring the AVVTs. I will gladly pass the timing of my PM (especially if I was first) to 3dzapper.
