  1. If your RP600Ms take to a subwoofer the way my RB-75s took to an RSW-10d sub, then you have yourself a winning combination. With that said, not sure if the R-100SW is even on the same playing field as the RSW-10d. Maybe look into an SVS SB1000. They have a 45 day risk free trial if it does not work out well. https://www.svsound.com/products/sb-1000 Bill
  2. Vintage is in my brothers. The Hipster crowd are the ones seeking the vinyl, turntables, tubes, and vintage speakers and most likely driving up the prices.. Good luck with your sale. Beautiful Heresys. Bill
  3. It was an attempt at humor. I guess I failed. Bill
  4. They are very nice except for the kitty "urine" on one of them. Bill
  5. Yamaha A-S3200 spec'd below. S/N ratio: single-ended, 110dB; balanced, 114dB. Though I am not electrical/electronics engineer, this sparked my curiosity because my older lower tier A-S1000 is dead quiet even at max volume(no source playing) with my Klipsch RB-75s. I pulled up another review from Stereophile, the Anthem STR D/A integrated amp. Anthem is known for building some of the quietest amps you can buy so I thought that would be an appropriate review to compare. Here below are measured SNR vs spec'd of the Anthem STR. the wideband, unweighted signal/noise ratio (ref. 2.83V into 8 ohms) measured 76.8dB. Restricting the measurement bandwidth to 22kHz increased the ratio to 83.7dB, and an A-weighting filter increased it further, to 86.4dB. (All ratios are the average of the two channels.) vs Signal/noise (1kHz, IEC-A, 2V RMS out): digital in, 44.1kHz, 112dB; analog in, DSP mode, 110dB; analog in, direct mode, 120dB. Stereophile must use some really tight tolerances in their measurements because of the similar differences from measured to spec'd of both the Yamaha and the Anthem. Bill
  6. Just curious with no sarcasm intended, what does "beat Hands down" actually mean? I see those exact/factual statements thrown around a bunch when it comes to subwoofer A verses subwoofer B. Also, IMO, Klipsch has not built a "consumer" subwoofer in the last decade or so that can compete with an SVS PB-13 Ultra for impact, extension, musicality, and build quality. The last Klipsch serious consumer subs that can check all or most of the boxes are the RSW line which is over a decade removed and none came close to the PB13U's extension. Bill
  7. From my understanding, the 260F/280F speakers are the first generation Reference Premiere and are basically the same engineering design as the new version 6000F/8000F speakers but without the newer cosmetic updating. I hope the above answer helps. Bill
  8. I never get why so many sellers don't spend a little time dusting/cleaning their gear before taking photos. I usually take one photo after "cleaning" and if I see any dust/blemish I immediately address it before more photos. @kcurtis600, enjoy your new speakers and welcome to the forum. Bill
  9. Either would be just fine. What's your budget? I would get at minimum an upper midlevel AVR that also has stereo preouts or even better multichannel preouts. Bill
  10. @Sanman5272, Welcome to the forum. Ideally I say go find a pair of RS-35 surrounds and an RC-35 center speaker. Even though the RC-35 is the "matching" center speaker, I would look for an RC-62 instead. Bill
  11. @Phecabooth, Welcome to the forum. I would not worry too much. Though the 7055 is not the most robust amp in audio land, it definitely is equal to or better than most upper level AVR's built in amp sections. Bill
  12. Some nice bikes guys. Rode quite a bit in the mid to late 90's. Surprisingly many great trails here in FL. Have an old Gary Fisher Joshua F4. Known for their tendency to "end-over". Happened once to me and I performed a perfect tuck and roll with no scratches. Bill
  13. Not really sure but others might know. This should explain some. https://www.audioholics.com/audio-amplifier/amplifier-voltage-gain DC offset could explain the low volume levels and shutdown. Bill
  14. I wanted to specify that I quickly sold the KG4s and not the Fortes. The Fortes hung around much longer than the KG4s and were not sold until a few years later after I acquired a minty pair of oak oil Quartets. The Fortes were very balanced with great punch and attack. Bill
  15. Maybe a voltage sensitivity matching issue between the integrated amp's preouts and the subwoofer's input. Bill
  16. I have Heresy 1s and 2s and laid back bass is not a way I would describe them. Also never heard 3s or 4s described that way either. Low bass extension lacking, yes but midbass punch is there in spades, IMO. I owned KG4s quite a while back and was somewhat impressed until I got a pair of Fortes. Quickly sold the KG4s to fund more gear and other speakers. Acquired RF-63s before the Fortes and they now stand in my house as the most balanced pair of speakers I have ever owned. Fast punchy bass, sweet accurate mids, and crispy detailed highs. My guess is that the RP8000Fs just might be described in the same way as my 63s. Many great reviews in web land. Bill
  17. @Msuwendy, Welcome to the forum. Have you compared all these speakers, including your dad's Heritage, in the same listening environment? Same amplification, same placement? Bill
  18. Most of the time, when someone copies and pastes ads they find on another outlet, it helps contribute more interest and puts more eyes on the product for sale, good deal or not. What is the saying, "bad publicity is still publicity". Still hope you do stick around. Bill
  19. Very true advice here. There are always some bad apples in the bunch. Also true but the "network" this forum provides is wide reaching and well connected. Just sift through all advice when given and make your decisions sound. Bill
  20. Probably a "mother hen" thing. We get a bit testy and protective when our children are involved. @Brian East, Welcome to the forum. Bill
  21. I don't think that is necessary. Not really a warning to the public, more like an opinion ad. Sellers can ask what they want. A potential buyer can agree to the price, make an offer, or move on. No harm no foul.
  22. Yes, condolences for the loss of your husband. All above advice is solid and we will help you determine a fair market value for your husband's cherished speakers. Maybe a respected and unbiased with nothing but good intentions forum member who is local to you will humbly assist you with this endeavor. There are many folks in this community that are capable of helping with no ill intent or personal gain and do abide by the scripture' "to look after orphans and widows in their distress". I personally would put Ebay and craigslist at he bottom of the list for liquidating. This forum's "Garage Sale" should yield you the best results. Bill
  23. I think you covered it pretty well. Bill
  24. I can't, sorry. I think I still have it in a file but it is corrupted. I tried to open it many times to no avail. Bill
  25. I did not think you were saying that. No issues there. I guess $200.00 here, $200.00 there adds up to the flipper in question. Though, it will be tough for him to get $900.00 unless the right(crazy) buyer comes along. Bill
