  1. Get a pair of any one of the Heresy incarnations.  If you don't like(you will), they can be easily resold.

    I am not concerned with the perceived lack of bass in the Heresy or others.

    Not lack of bass, lack of low bass.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I just acquired a pair of Chorus ll which were included with a Kenwood rack system.

     

    How do they sound with the Kenwoods?  My buddy once had a vintage Kenwood integrated amp(45w/ch) driving his Chorus 1s and the combo was wonderful.

    I have read that the Chorus ll sound best with around 100 wpc. I'm wondering how my Onkyo A-7070 will drive these at 70 wpc, any opinions?

     

    Probably pretty darn well.   I never owned the A7070 but did have a 90's A-9711(80w/ch) integrated amp driving my Heresy 1s, Heresy 2s, and Quartets and all combos sounded great.

    Keep an eye out for a Luxman R-115. Power specs are underrated, (brochure says 70w, testing says 85w). It & it's more expensive big brother (R-117) sound "warm" & go GREAT with older Klipsch.

    I could not agree more.  Big regrets selling both my R-117 and R-115.

  4. @MarkS3,

     

    Welcome to the forum.

     

    Of what you have listed, I would go with the RP-6000Fs all day long.  They are fine well balanced speakers that can hold their own in stereo, with or without a subwoofer.

    RP-6000F  (too deep?) 

    I can't completely decide that for you but from how you describe your room, I say no not too deep.

  5. @PhxKlipsch,

     

    Welcome to the forum.

     

    Wow, something seems wrong.  I personally feel that mid bass is what Heresys(I, II, III, IV) does best.  No not deep bass but very punchy and clean mid bass.

    Is it possible somebody tinkered with the woofers and they're wired out of phase with respect to each other?

    My first thought also.

  6. Very nice.  I was just looking at used prices about an hour ago in case I was to liquidate my black 105.  

     

    Looks like your price is spot on and in my opinion, worth every penny.  

     

    Good luck with your sale.

    So here is the proposed back end of the system:

    RP-6000F towers

    SVS SB-1000 Pro 12" sealed powered sub

    Schiit Aegis 20 wpc power amplifier

    Preamp undecided but possibly NAD C 165BEE or Rotel RC-1572.

    Looks to be a nice plan you have there.

    To reduce startup costs I might run a Denon PMA-600NE for a while before upgrading to the separates.

    Don't be surprised if this Denon handles the duties pretty well on it's own.

    1) Does this equipment seem a good match to my room and tastes?

    Don't see why not.

    Really only way to know is to try.

    3) Is the 20wpc Schiit Aegis enough power to play the RP-6000F quite loud?

     

    I think so, but a couple of factors to consider here.  How far is your listening position?  How loud is quite loud?

     

    Let's assume the actual sensitivity of the RP-6000F's is 92dB instead of the spec'd 98dB and no boundary/corner gain in play.

    20 watts at a 10ft listening position will measure about 95.3dB.  Seems quite loud to me.

    But, while the veneer looks book matched OK, it looks like there is a big issue with the consistence of the stain/finish.

    I agree totally.  Something went wrong with the duller sheet of veneer.  

     

    The more I look at the photo, the grayer veneer is the distressed oak and the browner veneer is the "standard" version of stained oak.  Must have been low lighting in the factory the day these were veneered.

  9. IMO, send it back.  You paid good money for showroom quality speakers and that is not what you have.  Things do happen but a good dealer will make it right.  Maybe they will let you keep them until the replacement pair arrives.

  10. @creed2,

     

    Welcome to the forum.

     

    I own the Heresy 1 and Heresy 2 and both in their own way sound wonderful.  Both are a great way to get your feet wet for not a whole bunch of $$$.  Deals on NOS Heresy 3's might be found if you search long and hard enough.  What I found most appealing about the Heresy is that it is not rally amplifier picky and can sound great with just about any amp, IMO.
