  1. Available for sale is my DJH Preamplifier It is in excellent condition. The pictures included are of my actual preamplifier. Upgraded v-caps Many like to advertise their products as "hardly used" / "barely used" / etc. That is NOT the case with this preamplifier. I loved it - and I used it plenty ...daily. Every time it has performed absolutely flawlessly since the day I bought it. All local parties are welcome to inspect/audition it in person. $1,100 + Shipping from 20817
  2. Available for sale is my Music Hall DAC 25.3 - Tube Digital to Analog Converter - $425 It was upgraded with Burron Audio Opamps!!!! This is an excellent DAC. Even if you are a hardcore measurement guy/gal - take a look at how well new/old music hall dacs perform based on the ASR website. This is one of the few dacs where the measurement guys/gal agree on its outstanding performance. It is in fantastic functional/physical condition. - Check out hi-res pics. Solely used for my "Computer Audiophile" based music server. It has performed flawlessly from the day I bought it.
  3. Available for sale are a pair of Klipsch Cornwalls, I believe from the mid-eighties (S/N 30X705/6). I've owned from for the last 17 years (since 2005), and I believe I recapped them shortly after purchased based on the rebuild kit Bob used to sell back then. The binding posts were also updated. Sonically - they are a solid 10/10. Cosmetically, I would rate them an 8-ish - certainly living room friendly. I'm thinking $1,000 for the pair is a good price?
  4. Thanks, Tom. Agree with your assessment about "not always crisp". Erin mentioned it wasn't meant to be an "interview", but just a casual chat between enthusiasts. That being said - it does seem like a missed opportunity to discuss more technical concepts re speaker design from one of the best in the industry. I'm super impressed with Erin's guest list so far - I just wish the channel could expand to covering more technical concepts.

    That is a very fair and accurate assessment - I do think it is "sweet and smooth" - almost laid-back ("tube-like") to me - but that is precisely why I have enjoyed it with horn-based speakers. I do think anyone who purchases this amp will be really happy with it. I mates really well with a lot of speakers.

    I've gone through ALOT of gear being in this hobby - constantly switching my gear - but my Plinius SA100 MKIII has been in my system now for 13 years. I love this amplifier. I kept it over my VRDs, Welborn 300Bs, McIntosh 7270, McIntosh 2505, McCormick DNA 0.50 and 2.0, and many other amps that I'm forgetting. Only one that came close was McCormick 2.0 - but I still like the Plinius most. I also think the Plinius mates really well with all Klipsch gear.
  7. Considering the components used, that is some seriously good value. Best of luck with your sale.

    BUMP - How come no love for this deal? I would imagine a trio of Klipsch Heresys + JBL 2242H Subwoofer + Near Perfect pair of RS-7s are worth at least $900???

    Thanks all. Just wanted to update with some pictures of the RS-7. They are overall excellent condition. There is slight vinyl wrinkle on the top left of one cabinet - but that never visible due to their typical mounting height.
  11. So true. We still have a pair at my parents' (Heresy II - "Signature Edition" - walnut with cane grills 🙂 ). I think its a great speaker - but I must say I have to agree that the Heresy require a sub. Its the same reason why so many fellow forum members here love the Cornwalls. Cornwalls are definitely more "full-range" than the Heresy - mind you they are 3 times the size (lol). In a smaller room, with close proximity to rear/side walls - the bass may be sufficient with room gain. However, in a larger space, augmenting them with a sub is the way to go.
  12. While I generally agree with this statement (because I too have a non-technical mind) - I think the intent of taking outside ground-plane measurements was to isolate the response of the speaker. Given every potential buyers' room could be different, I think it still helpful to see what the speaker is solely producing vs. what its produces in someone's specific room (because my room response could be vastly difference). I'm a Heresy fan (and a Klipsch Heritage fan in general - having owned Cornwalls, La Scalas, Khorns, modified Khorns, etc.) - and I still thoroughly enjoyed the review. The speaker was not Erin's cup of tea - and that is perfectly fine. I still think its super awesome for him to provide such measurements. I agree with what Chris said, one doesn't need to go by his "bottom line conclusions" - but they can still make their own judgement based on measurements provided. I did follow Erin's measurement thread at Diyaudio.com - and it was crazy the amount of testing / procedures he went through to perfect measurement technique. Thus, I have a lot of confidence in his measurements.

    (Washington DC Metro Area Pick-up Only) Helping my brother unload his Home Theater which consists of the following: Klipsch KP-250-II - Three - Left/Right/Center - Excellent functional condition, but slight imperfections in paint due to age JBL 4645B - 18" Subwoofer - Excellent Functional condition, but cabinet needed repairs that i have already made, the driver is in 10/10 funtional/cosmetic condition Klipsch RS-7 - Black excellent physical/functional condition. Don't know a fair price, but I we were thinking of asking (Now $SOLD!!!) for the whole package. I can't think of any home theater package that would even come close to this performance for the price. As of now, we are not interested in selling any of the components separately. I figured the L/R/C KP-250-IIs are worth at least $600, the RS-7 should be an easy $250, and assuming $0 for the JBL 4645B cabinet, the 2242H driver is alone worth $150 (rock bottom). Will try and upload pictures soon, but PM me if you are interested.
