  1. I love them both. They are unique in their own ways. Bill
  2. The main differences are 1.75 " vs 1" compression driver, real wood vs vinyl veneer, and an 8 lbs weight difference. Yes the woofers are the same and the horn sizes are different, 8" vs 6". The crossover frequency is also different, 2000Hz vs 2350Hz which allows the RB-75s 1.75" drivers to handle a bit more of the midrange allowing a smoother hand off. I have owned 3 pairs of RB35s and currently own one pair of RB-75s. I do think RB-35s are great performers but the RB-75s are on another plane. Bill
  3. Beautiful, good luck with your sale. Bill
  4. First welcome to the forum. Yes, I also think you are wrong on this. The RF-7s are beasts that have high output and high energy. With the wrong gear in the wrong room they can be a bit "biting" to some but some acoustic treatments and better gear can tame that bite some. The mods that are available address that sharpness allowing "consumer" grade gear to mate well enough with them in the not so acoustically perfect room. Bill
  5. I would agree that the RB-75 is the best bookshelf speaker Klipsch has ever produced, except for the P-17B which new was not "available" for the "common" man to purchase at $4000.00/pair msrp. Though, "if" you can find a pair on the used market, they are more affordable. Some in Klipsch land consider the Heresy a "bookshelf" speaker, me included, just on the huge side of the spectrum. Bill
  6. @iaRIVR, What is max $$$ you will spend? Just trying to drill it down to a price point so we are not all over the place with price. Bill
  7. Beautiful cherry pair for $1500.00. Respond in 3 seconds and they are yours. Seriously, my pair is here to stay. They are fantastic. @450, Good luck in your search and welcome to the forum. Bill
  8. What a joy to watch. RIP. Bill
  9. Okay, first first things first. @ZenAgain, welcome to the forum. You have a stellar rig that is hard to improve on but I will try. What is your budget for that new(to you) modern AVR? Where are you located? If you like your flagship Denon, then get a newer flagship or near flagship Denon AVR. My true suggestion would be to get an upper tier AVR of your brand choice and a minimum 3 channel outboard amp with upwards of 120w/channel. Many bargains on the used market and some new amps as well. https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/denavrx4500h/denon-avr-x4500h-9.2-ch-x-125-watts-a/v-receiver-w/heos/1.html#!specifications https://outlawaudio.com/shop/index.php?id_product=50&rewrite=model-5000x-5-channel-amplifier&controller=product Bill
  10. A steal at that price. Good luck with your sale. Bill
  11. I say if it is affordable to you then get it. Try it out for a while and then decide. I am sure if it does not meet your expectations you could easily pass it on to another fan. Bill
  12. It may work but it would be better mounted on ceiling. Bill
  13. I like that stuff also but a musical larger sealed sub/s can hold it's own with most action movie soundtracks while still providing that lower spectrum of the music we so love. I do like the versatility that HSU, SVS, and some other sub companies provide with the port plugging options. Considering you are more/mostly a music guy, then those should be an excellent choice. Bill
  14. No letter here but I was a second owner of a 6.5 year old(1.5 years after warranty expired) SVS SB13 Plus that had a Sledge amp failure and they replaced at no cost to me. Less than a 2 week turnaround. Bill
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. It was an attempt at humor. I guess I failed. Bill
  18. They are very nice except for the kitty "urine" on one of them. Bill
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. @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
  25. @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
