  1. Thanks for all the replies. Looks like it's not the bulb. I had to send the projector in for repairs. I tried doing a projector "reset" per JVC tech support and also tried cleaning the air filter but unfortunately neither worked (the filter was actually very clean).
  2. Wow! Sorry to hear you were one of the infected but glad to hear you are on your way to recovery. Hope it comes quickly!
  3. Congratulations! They look great. However, did you get life-size versions? Those look a litle on the small-side for Klipschorns! 😁 P.S. I've heard some say late 70's through early '80's (can't remember exact years) are the best because those models came with AlNiCo magnets. As an owner of 1978 walnut oiled Klipschorns myself, I can tell you the sound can be incredible if everything else is right.
  4. Does anyone have a recommendation on replacement projector lamps -- specific sources, OEM versus aftermarket, etc? I have a JVC projector that I got four years ago and it is possible that there is something wrong other than the lamp. The status indicator lights are doing something that is not covered in the manual and the few internet searches I found with similar results may indicate something other than the lamp. I may have to take it to the place I got it but regardless I'll probably need a replacement lamp before too long anyway.
  5. It's been a while since I looked it up, but I recall from several years ago that the price of a single was $1500 from Klipsch (not including shipping). I'm sure the prices are higher now. So yeah, provided it's legit and they are in working condition, that's a downright steal!

  7. #2 here -- sorry for my delay in responding Rich. As mentioned in my PM, I work during the day and am busy working so didn't get your messages until this evening. Joe: let me know when you're ready to sell! 😁
  8. I've never heard any of the Palladium series but have heard many positive reviews. What is the factory support on this series? If a woofer or other driver gets damaged, are there replacements available?
  9. Although I've never heard the Oris before, I would have some potential interest.

    Klipsch Restorations

    This is a forum whose primary purpose is the sharing of information. That is what I've done. As mentioned previously, I've met them in person. They are die-hard Klipsch fans. I enjoyed my conversation with them as I typically do with others that share my interest in audio and Klipsch speakers. I think they do great work, like that they are bringing old Klipsch speakers back to life, and hope that they do well enough to keep their business going. I shared their photos here because of their outstanding work and figured others here would also enjoy seeing them (if not owning them). I'd have to assume I was correct because as of today this thread has been viewed over 14,000 times. 🙂

    Really? Why do you say that?

    No, I've never been there. They stopped by my place to pick up speakers they bought from me.

    I'm also not a fan of the feet. I'd prefer they keep them the way they were originally designed.

    Hopefully you have heard from them by now. if not, try giving them a call (972-974-1820), contacting them via U.S. Audiomart, or replying to one of their Craigslist ads. https://www.usaudiomart.com/userprofile.php?user_id=127654 https://dallas.craigslist.org/ndf/ele/d/aubrey-klipsch-restorationscom/7005207039.html
  16. Classé doesn't seem to get that much attention on the Klipsch forums which is a shame. I've mentioned it many times that Classé is among my very favorite solid-state amplifiers. Performance-wise, Classé doesn't take a back seat to any of the brands mentioned above and may actually be preferable in some (maybe all) cases. Some mention the tube-like qualities and I have to agree -- the smoothness of this amp approaches tubes. While I still prefer tubes, I've wondered to myself what I'd miss if I just went solid-state for the convenience. The answer -- I could live very happily with Classé. Classé is a great match for Klipsch Heritage. The great thing about Classé is the value you get, especially when buying used. I currently own two of their amplifiers. While I use tubes for two-channel, I use a multi-channel Classé amp for home theater. $1000 is a GREAT price for this model and a better value than what I paid for my own Classé multi-channel amp! This amp can be configured for 6, 5, 4 and 3-channels. If I didn't already have my other Classé amplifiers, I would buy this in a heartbeat!
  17. I am interested. Will need to figure out how much I would need but should be able to use at least one bag.
  18. There is a chance, but I'd say it is very, very small. I've owned both sets for a long time, only recently selling one of them.
  19. I've owned two sets of 1978 Klipschorns (both Walnut Oil). The older one had the laser badges and the newer one had the badges that are shown on the Belles in this thread. You can probably guess that Klipsch did not wait until the calendar changed to January 1st, 1979 to make the switch. They used up all the laser badges and made the switch then -- on whatever day of the calendar that happened to be.
  20. I'd suggest you also look at Classé. The CAV-150 is a multi-channel amp that can be configured to 3, 4, 5, or 6 channels. In six-channel mode, each channel puts out 150 watts but you can bridge two channels to get 300 watts. If you only need 3 channels, bridge three pairs to get 300 watts per channel. The CAV-75 works similarly but is 75 wpc unbridged and 150 wpc bridged. https://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649518011-classe-cav150-6channel-power-amplifier/
