  1. Not much of these are actually Klipsch, other than the HF Lens. Dressed up with the Walnut, they look pretty good (to me) and sound great!
  2. This is also my understanding from a recent inquiry to Corey.

    Let's Go Raptors!!!

    My favourite sport to play is Baseball (now slo-pitch), but my favourite home town sport to watch is Basketball with the Raptors. Not a huge hockey fan, maybe that has a bit to do with the Leafs being a non factor since the late 1960's. But still, the Leafs are the Leafs, which made this a bit surprising... https://www.narcity.com/sports/ca/on/toronto/toronto-raptors-become-most-profitable-sports-team-in-canada-with-an-insane-net-worth

    Pascal had a great game!!! The Raps defence has been outstanding all season, but Curry and Thompson can change things in a hurry. And, who ever said Golden State is "better" without Kraft Diner, needs their head read!!! Looking forward to see what happens Sunday...

    What I Got Today!

    I was originally looking at one of Frank's EL84 amps and we tried a couple amplifiers at my house with the Cornscalas. I forget which EL84 model I preferred but when Frank heard it on my speakers he felt he should swap out the (I think) Jensen's for some Mundorf Supreme's SGOs. This is when I became a believer that caps can have a huge influence on sound! After we got the EL84 amp nailed down, Frank suggested that I consider the 2A3 tube. I took Frank's advise and had him build the amp shown above, I could not be happier!!! Fantastic detail with the then Cornscalas, then Jub-Likes and not my Peavey/510s! This is what I went with... optioned out as Frank saw fit based on my room and speakers... http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews2/triodelab/1.html Both my SF preamp and MP DAC now have similar Mundorf SGO caps in them, thanks to Frank. You will not regret going with Triode Labs, Frank is a fantastic builder.

    What I Got Today!

    Normally, I try not to get out there with VW guys (especially from Vegas 🤔 ), but... Mr Frank Ing is about as good as you could ask for a straight shooter to be. Mine are not Hashimoto (James) transformers... But, Hashimoto are fantastic and Frank will NOT build an amplifier that will not blow you away!!! I am fortunate to live only about 20-25 minutes from his house, by happenstance. A couple or so years ago when I was looking for a nice SET amp I was referred Frank and dropped by his shop, end of story! Frank has been at my house several times to listen to my Cornscalas (at the time) and took the time to fine tune "my amp" ... he actually swapped out coupling caps on my kitchen counter to make things great! I think you have Craig's VRDs, going with SET from Frank... you will have the best of both worlds. Fill free to use me as a reference to Frank, will probably not matter as he will still give you his primo service!!! Tom, from Newmarket...

    What I Got Today!

    Hey Threeonefour, I love the Canuck content, GREAT amp!!! As I look at my CA-150 which runs my bass bins, I realize, my whole rack is almost Canadian. Musical Paridise MP-D2 tube DAC Sonic Frontiers Line One preamp Xilica XP 4080 Xover CA-150, bass amp Triode Labs 2A3 tube, HF amp I will call my speakers Canadian, home brew... Peavey FH-1 / K510s.
  11. What I would do... Right after I ran out and put the $1200 down for these...
  12. What I would do... I liked my idea so much, I posted it twice. 😎
  13. Ya, I also like the look a lot. I picked these HIPs up 6-7 weeks ago for $600cnd, mind you I did have to drive to Montreal to pick them up (about 7 hours each way). They are not spotless, but they are in very nice condition and sound pretty good as well. Pretty rare up here to find nice Pro Klipsch. The closest I could come to finding a source for trim was in this old thread started by Michael were "Panacea Engineering" chimed in a said he was in the process of making molds to make the corner pieces... But then I could not find a follow up to see if he actually followed through with this. And I see, he has not posted here since April 24, 2016... not sure what happened to him?
