  1. 1. Quad of winged =c= Svetlana KT-88'S $150.00. These are the original tubes and highly sought, not reissues. 2. Parasound Zpre3 preamplifier with aux input and headphone input on front and home theater bypass, mono sub and fixed or variable outputs on the rear. Excellent condition. Have box and manual. 150.00 plus shipping. Paypal guest is o.k. I have decided to go with a different McIntosh amp.
  2. I wouldn't recommend bi-amping the cornscala. Bob's crossover is actually quite good and may be as good as an active crossover. If you choose to do it anyhow, you will need an active crossover as well as another amp. Any good SS amp will work well since it is only reproducing the bass. Just get one with sufficient power.
  3. The low-frequency effects (LFE) channel is the name of an audio track specifically intended for deep, low-pitched sounds ranging from 3-120 Hz. This track is normally sent to a speaker that is specially designed for low-pitched sounds called the subwoofer. While LFE channels originated in Dolby Stereo 70 mm film prints, they became commonplace in the 1990s and 2000s in home theater systems used to reproduce film soundtracks for DVDs and Blu-ray discs.

  4. Hi, some speakers are sold individually and therefore may not have sequential numbering but they will be close. No problem that they are not sequential. Sequential numbering takes place more with heritage speakers since they try to bookend the veneer. Components in the non-heritage speakers are the same whether or not they have sequential numbers.
  5. Those new Cornwalls should work very well with the McIntosh 275. How are you enjoying the 275? It's a wonderful tube amp. Enjoy the new speakers. Very nice looking system.
  6. Just to clarify; if you are going to purchase separates, you need to eliminate the term "AVR" and think preamp/processor to amplifier. The preamp/processor will control the output to a basic 5 channel amplifier. All processing takes place in the pre/pro. Also, with a pre/pro you could have a modest amp to drive the center and two surrounds and a much more powerful amp to power the L/R speakers. All adjustments will be made within the pre/pro (surround, balance, stereo direct, etc.)
  7. Good to hear that it was something simple. Try to get it sorted before summer when you'll get busier.
  8. Congrats on the new McIntosh 275. It's a great amp. May I politely suggest that you look into placing better tubes in it. Took me a while to realize the potential of the amp with better tubes, especially the KT88s. Now running BB 12ax7s, RCA 12at7s and Winged "C" KT88s and it is a totally different amp.
  9. Agree with Dean. I've had the CF-2, Forte I, II, Heresy 1, 2, 3, Cornwall III. My favorite? Forte III. Great looking and excellent sounding speakers.
  10. Have you tried switching cables first and then tubes? Could be one of the two.
  11. Here is a reference to that concert. Scroll down on the page until you find the poster advertising it. Notice the price of the tickets. Quite different from today. I didn't remember all those performers being there but I certainly remembered Buddy and watching the girls discover their sexuality as they stood right at the stage. Fun times!! http://www.hillmanweb.com/rock/rr01a.html
  12. Got to see Buddy Holly in concert in Rochester, NY, January 1958. Great show and there was no cold or snow. Watched the little teenie boppers at the front of stage ...
