  1. I recently got the CXA81for the system at my rural place. Very impressive integrated! Prior to the Cambridge was using a nice integrated tube with a Benchmark DAC, which I thought sounded very good, but the CXA81 with it's built in DAC wipes the floor with the old combo. Highly recommended.
  2. I own multiple pairs of KG4 and always remove the risers and use speaker stands (24 inch). They sound way better with the mid and tweeter nearer ear level IMO.
  3. I don't have one for sale but do own two. Beware of the Surface Pro 4, the touch screen can be buggy (driver issue) and Microsoft doesn't seem to want to fix it. The other models seem to work just fine and I really like them YMMV
  4. In a similar situation in wanting to upgrade my living room system. After a lot of reading on the AVS forum I decided to order the Anthem AVM 70 (though it is backordered until?). The Monoprice HTP-1 is very intriguing but I don't want the blow back from my wife if/when it gets buggy. Anthem's strong history of happy customers and long lived products was the deciding factor for me. BTW I also have a Yamaha CX-A5200 in my basement system. Very nice unit and totally trouble free.
  5. Thanks for posting your results. Any subjective impressions on sound?
  6. Very few on this forum, myself included, leave their Klispchorns unmolested. If you plan on not "improving" them then maybe the new ones, but I would go for the older ones. I bet they sound very close to the new ones and IMO the Klipschorn is a fun and easy speaker to tinker with. The best improvement of all is to chuck the passive crossovers in favor of active and time align the horns. Then you really have stunning sound.
  7. Anyone have any experience with the B&C ME464 horn? Its a big CD horn that seems to be readily available (unlike a K402). Tempted to pick up a pair and try them with my DH1A drivers. https://www.parts-express.com/B-C-ME464-1.4-Constant-Directivity-Horn-70x55-4-Bolt-294-6184

    Bicycle Tires

    Tire makers are extremely inconsistent in how they measure tires. I have a set of 25mm Specialized tires that are much fatter than my 25mm Michelin so you may run into issues with some brands if you are close to the biggest that will fit.

    Bicycle Tires

    Long time cyclist and triathlete. I never skimp on tires having let a pair go a little too long and lost grip in the mountains resulting on a broken elbow. Michelin is the best IMO. Not the cheapest however. https://www.biketiresdirect.com/product/michelin-pro4-service-course-tire
  10. I have Xilica and Ashly units and find them both very easy to use. Both have nice computer interfaces which makes it super easy to use and tweak. Figuring out what to do with them (REW) is the hard part IMO.
  11. You have to put active crossovers between the preamp and the amp. If you have to put it after the amp it will need to be a passive.
  12. I have a pair of KG4 I am willing to part with, also in Ohio (just north of Cincy). Shoot me a PM if interested.

    Are these stock or updated?
