  1. I have KG4s as rears in my living room. I used some very sturdy shelf brackets set into the wall studs. First shelf bracket I tried claimed it would take the weight but flexed a bit so I got a pair that could take double the weight and all has been good for the last couple of years. Probably not the best for earthquake country but in SE Ohio it works just fine.
  2. The hardware is made by D-Link, uses a sim card like a cell phone. Bought it through US Cellular when I signed up for the plan. Unfortunately no other good options that far out but it is a game changer for us allowing us to work remotely from there. , I am looking forward to seeing how the Space-X internet works once they have it up and running.
  3. I have a rural place near Henderson NC. The only available close to decent internet is through US Cellular. I have a cellular modem/router and can stream video just fine. However they do have data limits on the plans and it can get expensive.
  4. Loved the sound of 300Bs on my Klipschorns!
  5. Don't overlook Ashly processors. I have a Xilica and several Ashly Protea units. The Xilica is the best, but the Ashly units are quite good as well but not as tweak-able. There are also plenty of the Ashly units on the used market, Xilicas can be hard to find used and cost a lot more.
  6. Crown and QSC both make 4 and 8 channel amps.
  7. Cheap tube amps are just that. Look around, learn what you can, then shop on the used market for a well built one. However, if it was my money, Cornwalls!
  8. I use Audessy on my 2 channel K-horn with horn sub setup. However prior to running it I used REW to EQ and time align. In my experience Audessy and the rest are good at integrating multi channel systems and making small EQ changes, not so much with challenging rooms.
  9. I use Sony blu-ray players as a transport, and my Yamaha and Integra pre/pros to decode. Sounds great!
  10. The Integra, though the SMSL sounds very good as well. The Benchmark may be showings its age but still more natural sounding than the Topping.
  11. I bought the non MQA D90 last fall when I found a decent deal on one. Spent some time with my wife directly comparing it to the built in dac in our Integra DHC 80.3 as well as an old Benchmark DAC and a relatively inexpensive SMSL dac. The D90 came in last place and was returned. I was quite surprised given all the glowing reviews but my violinist wife was rather rude about its shortcomings. 🤣
  12. Always hard to tell until you do it. It really helped my Cornwalls but they were built 20 years before your Forte II. I have a Forte as a center channel between the Cornwalls and have not done anything to it, it still sounds just fine. I'm betting yours are fine unless the speakers were stored somewhere electronically unfriendly. YMMV
  13. These really are a bargain price for a more than decent sub. I own 2 F20 horn subs and a tuba table. Comparing them to the 12SW is like comparing Jubes to the KG series. However in the right setup these do a great job!
  14. Exchanged messages with him and he seems knowledgeable about what he has. However given the sudden increase in price I would say "buyer beware".
