  1. "11010110101010101101010001001001" that kinda sounds like the intro to Duran Duran's Rio.
  2. if you are using the standard cables....it will probably make some difference in the sound quality. I upgraded mine (made my own cables) a while ago, due to new length needs. It made some difference. But it only cost me 20-30 bucks...up to you This message has been edited by jonpratt on 04-01-2002 at 12:02 PM
  3. the system is at least one year old. the cp1 unit is a little less than 1 year old. I will give this a try. Is there any other solution? Overall it isn't a terrible issue, just very annoying sometimes when I want to listen at low volumes. ps where did amy go? did she get fed up with all the problems?
  4. 4.1 Sound Blaster Platinum CP1 At low volume levels I have limited left front channel sound. As volume increases left channel equals right. I would say from 7o'clock to 8o'clock there is no left front channel, but there is right front. at 8 both even out. Any suggestions?
  5. I was thinking about picking up a PIONEER DVD-106S (digital audio output). I would love some suggestions about a Digital input Soundcard. Right now I have a Xitel Storm Plat. Thanks, Jon
  6. I don't think you understand.... The Fiji scored well above all the SB products, along with every other card except the "professional" ones.... Sound quality coming out of a FIJI is better than these stinking SB's!!!
  7. I want to inject my opinion into this arena... The best soundcard, without CRUSHING your wallet.... TURTLE BEACH FIJI! check out the test http://www.pcavtech.com/soundcards/
  8. Anyone noticed this issue? I just sat down to listen to my KICKIN promedias and the sub was off. All speakers were firing as normal, but nada from the sub. I powered everything off, unplugged the sub, plugged it back in, powered up and walla! I don't CRANK my tunes, so it doesn't seem the sub would shut down.... any ideas? JOn
  9. If you are having problems with any Klipsch ProMedia equipment, I am sure Amy can take of the problem for you!!!! I don't know why tech support gets bombed on sooo much. I honestly think it is the user not following correct procedures to get the problem fixed. If you have a problem with Klipsch products, call Klipsch. They know what they are doing. I would not own Klipsch HT speakers and computer speakers if this was not the case. Call Klipsch! My two cents. Jon
  10. Most importantly... make sure you have dental coverage. Klipsch have been known to damage fillings and crowns.

  12. ohhhh I can almost hear it!!! Thanks Malcolm

  14. My opinion/experience - Sony ES line is nothing special. For the money you can get better. Denon is a great match to Klipsch speakers. Check prices at crazyeddies.com and shop around with them. JandR.com will match. Jon
  15. I know that placing a sub too close to the TV will cause interference with the tube. What about a sub next to a speaker? Let's say a KG2(non shielded) Jon
  16. Thanks, I was looking for mains to match. I will take a look at the SF-2

    New KG2s

    What Klipsch speakers (new) are the closet match to the KG2 line? Thanks, Jon
  18. First and foremost - Do Not buy sat. speaker system if you want GREAT sound. Best advice, go into a stereo store(not circuit city, or best buy) and listen to what is available. Check audioreview.com Mostly unbiased reviews by owners of the systems. And you will get a good feel for how much it will run you. For reference I have Denon AVR2801 85 watt DTS paid $500.00 Klipsch KG2s Front can't remember long time ago Klipsch KV-3 Center(perfect match to the KG2s) $200 Klipsch SS1 Surrounds $300 Velodyne CT120 sub $480 Not bad considering what some of the sat systems run. And I guarantee it sounds a heck of a lot better. Jon
  19. sub underpowered? What are you doing, setting this up on your home stereo system? Never forget this is a computer speaker system.
  20. As for your plugin... What did you like about the wow plugin? My opinion - It muddled the bass a little too much. Yes when I used it the sonic impact was BIG, but it sacrificed the overall quality. End of this opinion What do you like about the WOW plugin, maybe I can suggest something similar As for your ripping needs, I like Sonic Foundry. - little expensive cool edit 2000 - easy to use and powerful. Jon
  21. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with KG2s. I have set a pair up with a Denon AVR2801 and have begun to notice a fuzzy or raspy response to certain mid-to-high frequencies. The best way to explain the oddity is raspy voices in movies sound too raspy or fuzzy. All other sounds(highs and lows) are dead on, rich and beautiful. Since the KG2s have a sub and tweater, no mid range and it seems like only a slight frequency response is affected, I am stumped. Is this a downfall of the KG2s or could something else be going on here. For reference my setup - Denon AVR2801 Klipsch KG2s - Front Velodyne CT120 Sub SS1 surrounds Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
  22. Got the dvd already. It has benefited me in the past. I am awaiting a center - in the mail and trying to work out a raspy high note problem (driving me nutty) in the setup before I fine-tune. Have you had much experience with KG2s?
  23. PS the KG2s have been with me for awhile, and I have had to replace one woofer recently.
  24. Running KG2s on a Denon AVR-2801 Some high raspy notes/voices etc seem a bit too raspy and static filled. Has anyone got any suggestions? I am using mid quality Monster Cable with Radio shack gold banana plugs(screw down, not soldered). A good example of the problem - Eric Clapton and Friends DVD David Sanborn's sax sounds a bit harsh especially when heard as a light background instrument. Overall the sound quality of voices is good, unless they hit the high raspy notes. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Jon
  25. I just picked up a velodyne 120. Matches my kg2s well. And I don't think I would want something going lower than the 120. I might break a window or something.
