  1. That was my exactly my last setup from Klipsch. Very happy with sound quality and passed the WAF very well. Very dynamic and musical for a system of that size. Only upgraded to my current system because of great deal on RF-63's(1000.00/pair delivered). When I replace the RSX-4's with RS-52's for the surrounds in the family room, the master bedroom will get the complete 5.1 RVX-42 system. As far as bettering your JBL box system, you will not regret the purchase. Bill
  2. Get the RSX-5's for the front and use the RSX-4's for surrounds. Look at this add: http://www.vanns.com/shop/servlet/item/features/542199797 Bill
  3. First, not a stupid question. The question you don't ask is the stupid one. More bang for the buck, get the 62's. You will have matching tweeters all around and a little more ooomph in the surrounds. Plus if an upgrade to the RF-63's or 83's and RC-64 is in your future, you will already have 2/5ths of the equation. The RS-62's are big(15x14.75x9.75 and 28 pounds), remember the WAF. Bill
  4. Found a year and a half old pair of cherry RF-63's on Audiogon for $1100.00. E-mailed seller and realized he lived 10 miles down the road. He offered for me to come by and demo them. Bought them for $1000.00 and he delivered them to my house. I am 1 for 1 on Audiogon and couldn't be happier. Bill
  5. Thanks to all advice. I will hook up with pre-outs and run the amp all the time. Bill
  6. Thanks for the advice. Truthfully my main concern is a curious 4 year old, and my wife possibly forgetting to turn the receiver on first and amp second and vice-versa when powering down. I want the amp on only with 2 channel stereo(with me accessing this mode only). Bill
  7. If you haven't already, try connecting a digital optical cable to the 605 and assign it to cd on the Onkyo. I listen to most of my cd's with an optical connected to my 705 and use the HDMI for watching movies when using my HD-DVD player. Never skips,pauses, and generally sounds better to me. Also bipasses the TV all together. Bill
  8. Maybe I didn't explain it properly. I have a pair of RF-63's that are connected as 5.1 through the receiver only and 2 channel with the external amp connected to the receivers' zone 2 rca connections and the 63's other set of binding posts. In ther words, 5.1 w/receiver and 63's, and 2 channel w/receiver(zone 2) through amp to same 63's. Bill
  9. I know he is a relative newcomer but if you fast forward 10-15 years John Mayer would be on this list and possibly in the top 50. Not quite but possibly a reincarnation of Stevie Ray. Smooth and very controlled fingers. One with the guitar. Bill
  10. Is my question that stupid? Please someone steer me in the right direction. Bill
  11. Come on someone please try to help me with an answer. Bill
  12. I have an Onkyo TX-SR705 with zone 2 connections. I want to use the zone 2 rca connections and connect to my amp and then to the other binding posts on the RF-63's. With the jumpers in place, is it possible(recommended) to have both sets of posts connected at the same time and switch from zone 1 (5.1) to zone 2 (2-channel only)? I want to use the amp for 2-channel only. When I tried this configuration once and switched to zone 2, I think it looped back and the receiver went into protection mode(switched off). Is this a crazy thing to do? If so please suggest an alternative. Thanks, Bill This post is on Tech forum also. More exposure.

    Yamaha

    I second the motion. My Toshiba HD-A30 upconverts SD's as well or better than most BD players and definitely better than most of the SD players out there. For 75 to 125 dollars you can't beat it. An OK upconverting SD player will run you 75 to 125 dollars. By the way, it plays HD-DVD's. Dead format maybe, but the disks can still be bought online for 8 to 15 dollars. Bill
  15. Amazon.com $513.23 free shipping, Onecall.com $519.00, Accessories4less.com 439.99 (factory reconditioned w/Onkyo warranty). If your budget will allow, step up even higher to the 805(130w,Burr-Brown DACs,dual push-pull amp,THX Ultra2). Probably the best bang for the buck out there($579.00 to $700.00). Bill
  16. Yes the 576 with 90w is enough power to do the job. My suggestion if you have not purchased it yet, get the 705. It can be found for 425 to 525 dollars. Not much more than the 576 and with pre-outs if you want to add an external amp later for more power. Bill
  17. Bladerunner. Amazing computer restoration. Film looks and sounds like it was made today. Buy the collectors set, watch the original then the BR. What a difference. Bill

    Pet Peeve

    I know this sounds simple, but tell them. If they are really your friends they will respect your wishes. If that won't work steer them toward the kitchen where most gather anyway. Food and beverages usually has a way of distracting people from other things. Let them also know that if the kids can't eat and drink in the family room neither can they(you know setting an example). If all fails, put radioactive placards on each speaker. Bill
  19. By the way, why is anyone sitting at a computer at 5:30 pm on the 4th of July? Sun, beach, adult beverages. See ya. Bill
  20. To answer part of your post, yes the Onkyo TX-SR705 will have no problem driving your setup. Remember Klipsch speakers are very efficient. Even 75w wouldn't struggle. If you look at my setup, I have a 705(100w) driving the RC-62(150w),RF-63's(175w) and RSX-4's(50w). I wouldn't worry about the mis-matched wattage. I bought the amp(200w) for a little extra oomph, and for a cheap price($100.00). As for as bi-amping, I'm not sure. If you feel that you just need more, buy an inexpensive used amp. I also will eventually replace the surrounds with RS-52's. Bill

    I know you are saving for the house(I know all about that first hand). Just wanted to point out something that is semi-local, often times sellers are willing to be very flexible on the price when the buyer is willing to pick up so they don't have to go through the trouble of packing and shipping. That is how I bought my RF-63's. He said if he didn't have to ship he would knock another $100.00 off price($1000.00 delivered in person to my house). Bill

    Hey Youthman, Here is a link for a used Carver 3 channel amp in Palm City,Fl. Just responding to you mentioning that you would like to ad an amp. Don't know how much you want to spend but the price seems reasonable. The reviews on Audioreview seem favorable. http://cls.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/cls.pl?ampsmult&1219769209 Bill
  23. Klipsch website says that Heresy II's came in black lacquer. Bill
  24. Found this add in Orlando Craigslist. I think it is a pair of Heresy's. Help me out, I want to jump on it. http://orlando.craigslist.org/ele/734656508.html By the way, I found it first. Thanks, Bill
  25. If your dealer is well-informed, he would steer you away from the Synergy/Reference combo. Maybe there is a higher profit margin with the Synergy series? Bill
