  1. Yes, RC-62II. An RC-62 would match at about 90% to 95% I would bet. Bill
  2. @charlie1981, Welcome to the forum. The 8000F will match just fine. Bill
  3. @Percussalot, Welcome to the forum. Nice inheritance. You have yourself a pair of Klipschorns in raw Douglas fir(KDFR). Not sure of year built but I know others will chime in to better describe exactly what you possess. What I also know is that you possess a nice piece of audio history that IMO, is worth restoring and keeping in the family. Bill
  4. Don't know much about pro amps but do know that Jeff is a stand up guy and will make any transaction smooth and painless. Don't hesitate to deal with Jeff. @jtubbs6117, Good luck with your sale my friend. Bill
  5. Have you considered these instead. https://outlawaudio.com/shop/products/50-model-5000x-5-channel-amplifier.html plus https://outlawaudio.com/shop/power_amplifiers/25-model-7000x.html Same great ATI build quality but less $$$ and less power. Bill

    RIP Hank Aaron

    One of my all time favorites. Brings back memories walking the tracks looking for track kill(not humans), crossing the trestle hoping no train comes, walking/wading through leach and cottonmouth infested swamps. Back to Hank Aaron. It brings tears to my eyes every time I watch the clip of him breaking the record and rounding the bases and the two bold admiring fans patting him on the back. Bill

    RIP Hank Aaron

    You and me both and not sure it was stress that started my nail biting. Sports and exploring was all we wanted to do. Back then and through my teenage years, we were like the kids in "Stand By Me", always on an adventure with very little stress and few cares in the world. Bill

    Oh yeah. Biting my fingernails as usual. Bill

    RIP Hank Aaron

    A classy stand up guy who had all the reasons in the world to be bitter but chose the high road. He will be missed. Did I mention what a great baseball player he was? Go Braves or Hammers if the name gets changed. In addition to Hank being still the career RBI and total bases leader, a cool fact I read yesterday was that even without Hank's 755 homeruns, he would still have over 3,000 hits. Bill
  10. Joel, Welcome to the forum. Maybe consider moving this thread or reposting it to the "Garage Sale" Forum where we try to liquidate our gear. Good luck with your sale. Bill
  11. @garyclayton, Welcome to the forum. What is the size of your room? How loud do you like to listen. In general, the amount of amplifier wattage isn't the most important thing, the quality of amplifier wattage is. In an average size room(2500ft3 or so), as little as 40w/ch will make the RF-7 sing cleanly at pretty high levels provided those 40 watts are "quality" watts. Quality meaning high current 4 ohm stable. I once took my 90w/ch@8 ohms, 140w/ch@4ohms Yamaha A-S1000 integrated amp over to forum member @Youthman's home for an RF-7 vs RF-7II vs RF-7III shootout and all three shined with the Yamaha. His family room/kitchen/dining room is pretty large and the Yamaha had no issues with dynamics and thumping those 10" woofers. Enter the Acurus A200 and the punch was even more pronounced. In the same room I bet that 40w/ch would have impressed as well. Bill
  12. I get what you are saying. A bunch of talk these days about DBA and it will(can) accomplish what is needed. Bill
  13. Can you stack some of the subs to add more floor space? If at all possible, I would keep the RF-8000Fs. Bill
  14. How far from the screen is your rear seating? I am not going to say that your front LCR is the wrong choice because of their size but I am going to highly encourage you getting at minimum another 15" subwoofer. You will have a difficult time pressurizing that room(near 4000ft3) so you can "feel" car crashes and bomb blasts. Bill
  15. How about in the left corner behind the sectional sofa? Bill
  16. @jdmccall, How is the Denon PMA-1600NE treating you? Bill
  17. @SergSlim, Welcome to the forum. I really think you have things covered very well. That system will rock your room. One change if you don't mind me saying, add a second SPL-120 subwoofer or get a single SPL-150 for now. Bill
  18. One of my favorites to demo equipment. Especially "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" and Steve Gadd's drum intro. I think I ripped my copy as a FLAC and it sounds identical to the CD. Bill
  19. Another legend gone. Prayers for family. Bill
  20. I have always been very fond of older Denon gear. I have owned a POA-1500 amp, PMA-1080R integrated, PMA-700V integrated, PMA-757 integrated, PRA-1500 preamp, DCD-1500 CD player and a beastly DCD-3520 CD player. All have been rock solid reliable, sweet sounding, and fast and punchy. With these guts(monoblock topology), I see no reason not to consider the POA-8300. Bill
  21. I do think so as well as @Zen Traveler. Maybe $100.00 to $125.00? Not the price expert hear. Maybe you and @mustangerfourlife can discuss privately. Hope it works out for you two. Bill
  22. As mentioned, the CXA60 is the updated version of the 651A which is the updated version of the 650A which is the updated version of the 640A v2 that I have been beautifully driving my Heresy IIs for quite some time. Bill
  23. I have a feeling you will like it. The only AVR I have heard that sounds pretty darn good for stereo music is my 52.8lbs 2004 flagship NAD T773 driving my Heresys. Though it does have a higher noise floor than most of my other gear, it can hold it's own when it comes to music. Bill
  24. @big bones billy, Do you still have those mahogany RB-5s at your place in Bradenton? As far a center channel with your RB-75s, maybe look for an RC-7 or even an RC-64II would work great. Bill
  25. How large is your room? If under 2000ft3, I would suggest a pair of smaller subs like the SVS SB1000s. Though my RSW-10d(before the amp took a dump) was plenty with my RB-75s in a 3000ft3+ room. Bill
