  1. Well, is a work in progress, so I'm sort of embarrassed to show it off right now... it's tiny room for a setup with these massive speakers; in fact you could almost call it near-field! Plus I am also having to store some of my other toys (for instance, pair of kg4 in boxes, my second subwoofer kit parts, etc. But, oh the sound... Rick
  2. Love my newly acquired CF-3 V1s! Not a lot of difference from the 4s. These (Epics) are the first speaker that I have had (or heard, really) that brings out that awesome mid-bass people rave about. I never really liked (boomy) mid-bass until I heard it done properly. I listened to the 3s in the sweet spot for a few days and then moved them to rear duty in my all Epic 5.1 (soon to be 5.2, using Dayton Audio subs and kits). Killer HT, I'm telling ya...! Rick
  3. Anyone know what "RV" is in the model code of KG4s, as in KG4 WO RV? Serial # is 8821710 Rick
  4. Nuttin'...not even the first Craigslist scammer! It's not that terrible is it?
  5. Excellent condition, top of the line Synergy sub does a great job in small to medium sized rooms. Local pickup in Fulshear, TX. Can deliver a short distance in the Katy/Houston area. $225 obo Rick https://houston.craigslist.org/ele/d/fulshear-klipsch-sub12hg/6839278262.html
  6. Experience with this amp? https://www.parts-express.com/yung-sd500-6-500w-class-d-subwoofer-plate-amplifier-module-with-6-db-at-25-hz--301-514 Rick
  7. Sorry I didn't have time to read the entire thread, but I'll just say that two of my favorite Jazz guitarists are Randy Bachman and Jeff "Skunk" Baxter; oh, and make it three, with Steve Howe
  8. Oh, those stereotypes....LOL...although she wanted to sing cowboy music, the rednecks railroaded her out with, "we ain't havin none of that!"; in fact I enjoyed two of my KD Lang CDs just last night...and a Blu-ray concert last weekend...
  9. Yes, please. I am not yet that much into classical, but I am a gear-head and a tech-head; that is, I love music but I also listen from a technical and mechanical point of view...yep, I am one of those that listens to the equipment and the skills that go into producing the media. I get a kick from those that boast, "it's all about the music and nothing but the music!" And I say well why don't you listen on a boom-box then? Rick
  10. Thanks again, @Chris A. Would love to see/hear your awesome system sometime. Have a cousin very near you; trying to get him fixed up with higher-end audio. Rick
  11. Thanks, Chris, awesome reply! Yeah I knew something is definitely missing, and it's sad that the music industry chooses to produce their product that way. Do you think music production was better before the CD and before loudness wars was a thing? Or was it always inferior to what the "Hollywood" producers were doing? I still buy CDs to hopefully still get the best audio possible. It is very disappointing what you hear with loudness and compression applied; especially from artists that should know better. Joe Bonamassa comes to mind
  12. Posted this on a Klipsch owners' Facebook page, with little to no interest...figured I'll query your interest here: Long before home theater I would always find a way to get the TV and video/movie sound out to my stereo system. The sound was so clean and full, excellent bass depth and tone. I thought it sounded so much better than recorded music of the time; vinyl and cassette and CD. I attributed it to the higher bandwidth and resolution that they used to record; although the term bandwidth may not have been used back then, I think it meant the same; basically, capturing more information ...at a given time than what they were doing with music recording. They used wide, high quality tapes I guess more than anything else. Think reel to reel for audio, and how, at the end of the day, maybe still the best medium that we have ever had available for music. And what about VCRs? Anyone ever record your records into the VCR? Sounded amazing, didn’t it? And TV and movie audio continues to dominate today. Take for example; the other day at the end of Episode 3 of HBO's True Detective (current season), the song that was playing right at the end of the dialog suddenly got full volume as the credits started rolling. I thought, OMG that sounds awesome! I played it over a few times, impressed with how my system was sounding! Although I had definitely heard the song before (I thought it was Conway Twitty), I had to look it up, and found that it was actually Jerry Lee Lewis. Well I immediately went to Amazon Music, and Alexa found the song right away. I played it, and although it sounded pretty good, it was missing that fullness and room-filling presence that was coming from the video; I can’t really describe it; it just sounded different, in a lesser way. I know, I know, you’re going to say that it’s compressed, but personally I think Amazon overall has very good quality. So what happened there? Obviously the same version of the song that was originally recorded for a record, but sounds so much better in a film soundtrack. I assume they remaster it from the original tape with higher resolution, bit depth, sampling rate? So who’s with me on this, and maybe some of you techies can offer an educated synopsis that backs up what I am throwing out there; what I am hearing. And when is music recording going to catch up? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIPb8R86b94&fbclid=IwAR0_cwQrB4C7qt8aaveUsg74ZS8e2OlUCvq7T_EQY9_YYFOvUF3t_YL5-zs Rick
