  1. I did use ASC tube traps (16” diameter x 48” tall) with Forte III, Chorus II and my current non-Klipsch speakers. My comments refer to the original ASC tube traps, not the new isothermermal traps. I have no experience with those. The tube traps are very effective if your room needs them. My room without treatment has very boomy bass in some places and other areas with bass suck-out where the bass disappears. The bass traps improved the bass quality. Bass became tighter, more focused and even. The ASC also have some diffusion built into one half of the round so if you want you can add degrees of diffusion. I found however, that I didn’t care for the diffusion and turned the traps so the diffusion wasn’t used. All this being said, the ASC traps are quite expensive and I “cashed out”, selling them and replacing them with much less expensive GIK corner traps that overall are just as effective. I have since added a GIK 244 bass panel on a back wall and that has helped even more with the quality of the bass.
  2. Run away! This guy posts on cl all over the country the same ad. Scam.
  3. Post from another forum I recently read: ”2 parents 4 grandparents 8 great-grandparents 16 second great-grandparents 32 third great-grandparents 64 fourth great-grandparents 128 fifth great-grandparents 256 sixth great-grandparents 512 seventh great-grandparents 1028 eight great-grandparents 2048 ninth great-grandparents for you to be born today from 12 previous generations, you needed a total 0f 4094 ancestors over the last 400 years. think for a moment, how many struggles? how many battles? how many difficulties? how much sadness? how many love stories? how many expressions of hope for the future? did your ancestors have to undergo for you to exist in this present moment...”
  4. Scam. The same is ad is listed in several locations around the country. The same (……fill in the blank) also has an ad with ForteIV and a Mac piece listed on different CL sights.
  5. My favorite 70’s receiver was a Pioneer SX939 when I was buying vintage gear. It sounded very, very good and had a great tuner. I also set my son up with a nice vintage system that included the 929 and a pair of Advents and he had no desire to keep it. It is the one vintage receiver I regret selling. I would love to come across a deal on a SX1010.
