  1. Angus -- Just don't think I could fit them in. My listening area is a basement room roughly 12' x 14'. The kicker is the ceiling is 7'. Since 2014 I have been "downsizing" to provide a better balance between equipment size and ability to move around the room. Got rid of Belles and moved to RB-75s which fill the room pretty well. Built a console because I had had a hodgepodge of racks and stands. My latest wild hair is to try and see if I can get a pair of RC-7 and have Dean adjust to the networks to use as front mains. Just to see the difference between them and the 75s. I have one RC-7 now as my center.
  2. Don't forget, would trade for cherry RC-7
  3. For those asking about shipping, not sure the cost would be worth it. A quick estimate on FedEx. 26" x 20" x 18" at 50# from 20002 to 90713 is $110. To 32407 is $70 There would be two of these and the kg box would be slightly smaller. In my opinion, kinda defeats the purpose.
  4. I have a couple set of speakers that have been sitting on the shelf for a good six years now. I just need to pass them along so I can address some other things I would like to do. The heresy are 1976. When I go them they were unfinished and within the first few months I used then I had a voice coil go out on a woofer. I replaced both woofers with new K24-E from Klipsch. They have K55-V solder connect mids and K77-M square magnet tweets. Around the time I put the new woofers in I replaced the caps with AudioCap Thetas. This was all around 2012. I also had them re-veenered with ribbon cut mahogany. I also have magnetic grills for them, and two pie badges that could probably use a touch up on the adhesive. The kg1s are bone stock. They are walnut, which was one reason I got them. Back in the day I though they were going to be my rears for a "heritage" 5.1 but things changed over the years and I ended up going reference series. Both are in what I considered very, very good cosmetic shape. I'm sure if you look hard enough you can find some imperfection, but that is looking very hard. These are located in Washington, DC. Capitol Hill area. Be glad to hook them up if you stop by. I would like to sell both sets together. I am ready to eat sunk costs. $500 takes both pair. I have the original box for the kgs, and very well made boxes for the heresy(s). OR, would trade them for a cherry RC-7. I have more pictures but didn't downsize them all. Send an PM and we can go to email if you want more. Thanks.

    The Cola Wars

    I would bet money the guy in the 7 UP commercial is a young James Earl Jones.
  6. It is all context and perception. I have been running a pair of AW-650 for ten years. The entire time has been with little T amps. First was a HLLY (20 watts). About five / six years back got a Dayton audio (can't be sure, but the 60 or 80 watt model) This is plenty for me, but I don't treat the neighborhood. I actually run both the 650 on the patio and a set of CDT-5650 in the kitchen ceiling off the same amp. Run the leads to two impedance matching volume controls then on to the two sets of speakers. But, this is a row house in DC. The patio is a postage stamp. Over the years have gone from mini computer, to ITX, and now a raspberry pi. Just remote desktop in from laptop or phone with RDP app and go to it. Browser for Pandora, Clementine to my NAS for stored tunes. The computer and amp are in the basement, up a little chase to the attic, back down to kitchen ceiling and wall to volume controls, then to ceiling for kitchen and straight out for patio.
  7. Am cleaning out old copies of National Geographic, seems a subscription every year or two is a simple xmas present from my sister. Anyway, there was a quick blurb in May 2017 about non-sanctioned music and one way of distribution in the old soviet union early in the cold war years. Pretty unique images. BoneRecords.pdf Can anyone see the scanned article? I get a message that it is not available.
  8. Curious about this. Was it process oriented? Have a 222C also with the test points and adjustment screws above the chassis that Craig put in. (bias balance and bias voltage) I go by his process instructions cheat sheet.
  9. Read this and just wondered if you could set up a small orchestra here. Don't know if Wakeman could do an acoustic Journey to the Center of the Earth. https://arstechnica.com/science/2018/11/cave-acoustics-can-help-sculpt-more-realistic-sounds-in-digital-space/
  10. Before you go buying things, check the attributes of the Line Out, if it has one. Often they have an optical integrated into that. Use a TOSLINK that has a mini connector on that end with a regular optical on the other. I have two computers like this.
  11. It was my understanding that the KV series of centers were the match for Kg speakers.
  12. Sounds good. First approach will be the terminal cup then and see what that entails. Zen -- send a PM if you may be interested in reducing your unused xovers.
  13. I am thinking about having my networks refreshed and before I start out I was wondering if anyone has removed the crossover from a RB-75. I was curious if everything can be done from the terminal cup, or if it is similar to a RF-7 where you need to remove the low frequency driver to facilitate disconnecting leads. Thanks--
  14. I pulled this amplifier out of the shelves over the holidays because I pull it out about once a year just to remember how it sounds. I got this in 2013 when I still had a pair of Belles because I wanted to experience a low power amp. I got rid of the Belles about a year later and really didn't use it much after that. In fact when I had it it was part of a three amplifier rotation so didn't get all that much use even then. It is really a nice sounding amp but now running Reference bookshelves as my mains I like to use my other two amplifiers with more power. So, rather than taking up shelf space and using it once a year I thought I would see if anyone is interested in a trade. Off the top of my head a nice set of headphones or a good class D amp would be considered. I have never heard Grados so something along the lines of 325s would be interesting. Maybe even something like HiFi Man 400s. Don't know much about class D so open for discussion. Have more pictures if you need. It is a GLow Audio Amp One. A 5w/ch EL84 single ended pentode. It has two line level inputs, headphone output, and switches for both. It is a bit funky as the tube sockets have blue LEDs. The volume know has LED lighting also but I always kept that turned off. I will sell but figure it would be easier to get a trade out of it. Let me know if any interest. Thanks. Located in Capitol Hill in DC if any locals want to audition.
