  1. Yeah. It was one of the Fry’s one day sales. The checkout had it for $1100 but you put the promo code 2288 in there and it dropped the price pretty much in half. They have a warehouse in Louisiana so it shipped from there and not their Cali location. I did see it at Accessories for Less for $750 and refurbed so Fry’s was cheaper and new was a no brainer which is lucky for me! 😀
  2. That Emotive looks nice! I did already receive the Yamaha from Fry's for $695. Haven't unboxed it yet. Will have to do it this weekend. Looks like my Denon AVR5803 is going used for as much as I paid for the Yammy. But the Alexa, Plex and other streaming services look prety darn good. I do have a 3TB frive that is full of FLAC files that I am hoping I can connect to the USB port and play, but I guess I need to unbox and find some You Tube vids for instruction on all that.
  3. dtel, I did think about that. I had an old B&K Ref30 that I loved. The thing is this Yamaha Aventage 1080 was on sale at Fry’s from $1100 to $700. I don’t think I could get a pre for as little as that. Sure the amp section in the Yammy will not be used but even with the beast of a Denon I have, the amp section is unused. For the price I paid for the Yamaha I not have video and audio switching with the latest sound fields. I still miss my old Pioneer DVD-A\SACD player but I do have all that music in almost every format except cassette or 8 track!
  4. Thanks for the input. I will check out this Yamaha 1080 and see how it goes. If not, back to the Denon. Love that beast of a receiver. It weighs double what the 1080 does but again, not an issue with my Parasound 2205AT. Let the testing begin!
  5. I’ve been out of the Home theater scene for the last 9 years. I was in before HDMI and was thrilled with my old Pioneer SACD\DVD player. Loved listening to DTS\SACD\DVD-A music. But all that tech has changed so dramatically. I have been using a Denon 5803 but for a year now, all source, except CD and phono, go through a Parasound DAC for 2 channel audio. So my Academy and 2 rear channels sit silent. Then along comes a sale at Frys for the Yammy 1080 $695 delivered to my door. I do have a Parasound 2205AT for 5X220 so power is covered. I’m really not intending to go 7.2 or 9.1 or any other config except for 5.1. Did I spend wisely of this or if I’m not going full bore and hooking up more speakers for ATMOS, am I just wasting my time? Sure miss those days when things were simple. But then again. If I were my current age back then would I hate the change as much? Damn kids, get off my lawn!! 😜
  6. Sorry to rehash this old thread but looking for either end caps or the feet pictured. Both Home Depot and Lowe’s have no caps. Really like the feet that raise them but that link has expired and brings up a google page with a crap ton of caps and feet to look at but nothing in the size needed. Anyone have an idea where I can find either one? Thanks in advance.
  7. That's the thing with these darnn Chorus speakers. You spend $600 then you get the Crites diaphragms and crossovers revuilt, build Port tubes(thank you Matthews), get some good wood oil on them and now you're into them for $900-1000. But damn they sound good. I bought mine to replace my LaScalas but I just can't let the Las go. Chorus are amazing but the LaScalas are amazinger. You watch, one day that will be a word too. Freaking irregardless made it into the dictionary. Sorry for the hijack. Now back to a good buy on Chorus in Tampa Bay.
  8. Southeast where? Tampa Bay Craigslist has a pair. Same dude I bought my Chorus 1's from.
  9. Oops. Didn't see your tag line! Sorry. In all fairness I didn't have them at the same time so I couldn't compare hem. I did love my 69's. They were quite the project. Pretty much brought them back from the dead cosmetically and changed out the tweeter diaphragms before having Crites rebuild my A crossovers. Also added the CT-125 tweeters. They did sing but what do I know. I thought my Cornwall 2's sounded better than my Cornwall 1's though the 1's had nothing done to them. Those I did do side by side comparisons. So so I guess I will move with both sets and try them both though I am feeling a lot more positive about the Khorns. Thank you everyone for your responses.
  10. Here is a pic of my 79 Las and 2009 Khorns. The 09 Khorns are far superior to the 1969 Khorns I had a few years back.
  11. Not a problem my friend. Lost track here for a few years but now I have freedom again like Bravehart without the kilt!
  12. I've actually been with the forum since it's inception. I was a constant lurker but not a frequent poster as is evidenced by my post count. I do agree to not get rid of the Khorns but the room may dictate otherwise. They are in perfect condition and from 2009. I purchased them from another forum member who lived around 50 miles away. I have enjoyed them for several years now. LaScalas are tough to give up too. I just love both sets. Not quite a Sophie's choice here but I do want the best sound from the system.
  13. Currently have a pair of 2009 Klipschorns in a 20X35 room. Lost 150lbs (wife) and am downsizing to a house with a LR of 13X22. Was going to put the Khorns on the 13' wall. Will that be good for them to breath? Or should I just use my LaScala's instead? Sad day to sell either pair but its a small price to pay.....well I digress! :-) Thanks for your assistance.
  14. I am so tempted but I think my 09's would be jealous! :and then agin, there would be a divorce too. So I guess it has its positives and negatives. :-)
