    So you also got a pair of Peavey SP1? If the depending on the woofers, that's like getting a second set of party LaScalas.

    No, I got a pair of Klipsch SP 1 sold for $120.00.

  2. It is just an SW15 looks like it was born in 1993.


    Yes, I plan on selling it locally. I think it would cost more to ship than what it is actually worth. The thing is huge. I certainly have nowhere to place it and my daughter and her husband are not nterested in it at this time. I'm still working on them ,though I don't know how successful I will be.

  3. I won an auction where I scored a pair of Lascalas, a pair of SP1s and an Sw15. I am checking this giant subwoofer out and it's not too bad.

    For being 26 years old it is actually pretty darn good.

    My only problem with it is that it is huge.

    Is there much of a market for this beast ?

  4. I am always amazed at how lazy we humans can be. With all the technology we have at our disposal, we utilize it to do less and less. I too am guilty of this. I am in possession of several remote controls, because it just seems to be too troublesome to get up off my butt and push buttons or turn dials. I do still vacuum. Probably not as often as I should. Maybe I should look into a roomba.

    I too think that you should put up some protective barrier.



  5. I lusted after Belle's for years. I too thought they would sound comparable to the Lascalas I owned. I was wrong. In my room they just didn't do it for me.

    My Cornwalls seem to be the ticket for me. They do a lot right and very little left for me to want.

    Belle's are beautiful.

    Good luck.

  6. Welcome to the forum.


    The sickness is upon you.


    You think you don't have enough space for Lascalas, but wait, there is that voice in your head that can become very persuasive.


    Enjoy your Klipsch. They are wonderful speakers, and again, welcome.

    Sorry, but think most of these soundbars are a waste of money.  Assume you have an AVR ... buy 3 decent speakers and hook them up as a 3.1.

    Cheers, Emile

    Just want something to sit below or in front of TV on stand, that can give me better sound for TV programming, sports, news, occasional sitcom. 

    I have my Sunfire Ultimate Receiver hooked up to DVD player and Cornwall for music and movies.

  8. My experience with kg4s, is that when ab testing them against heresys using an hk430 in a10x12 carpeted room, I liked the kg4s just a little bit better.

    Both pairs of speakers were stock.

    Don't get in a hurry to change things. Sometimes what you change just makes it different not better.

    You can't go wrong with either speaker, depending on the associated gear.

    Thank you for your recommendation. 

    Unfortunately when I did some research into cost, it is a little more than I am willing to spend.

    I think less than $300 is about where I am at and $250 or less would even be better.

  10. I don't watch the TV much, but the Samsung flat screen I bought awhile back has to have the crappiest audio I have ever experienced in a TV.

    I am not interested in doing a home theater thing just some decent audio.

    So my question is, Soundbar, yes or no?

    I am tired of not hearing unless I turn the volume way up, and even then the quality is poor.

    I know I'm not going deaf because I have not had to crank up the stereo to new levels.

    Any recommendations?



  11. Rxonmymind, I did get those up and running and they sounded great.

    I played with them for a couple of weeks and then decided to sell them.

    I had to make a decision on what speakers to keep due to space constraints, so the Cornwalls and Magnepans won out.

    If you get them for the right price, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

  12. I am ready to pull the trigger on this cartridge to mount on my Scoutmaster, but the price is making me hesitate.

    I have a Zu modified Denon DL 103 mounted on it now and it sounds great, but because of my mental illness I have the overwhelming desire to try the Soundsmith cartridge.

    Anybody familiar with this cartridge? Do you think I will hear a significant difference between the two cartridges?

    Any input will be appreciated.


    Thank you, Tom

  13. I have a 1952 Klipschorn in original condition that I have been looking for a match for awhile now. Mine is a light colored veneer and unfortunately I live in Washington state. You are quite a few miles away and unfortunately I don't have any plans to come down that way this summer. If you were just a couple of states away I would be very interested.
