  1. Rolling Stones records in Norridge/Chicago has a set of heresy's in the back section.
  2. Altec Valencia 846a Never heard any Quad equipment so i could not compare the two Many here run Marantz and seem happy, i always liked the warm Marantz sound.
  3. Long time no hear Joe, the cable will not know witch end is up and will make no difference but yes in general the arrows should flow in the direction of the current ( preamp to amp...etc) Oh, by the way the LaScala's still sound great.
  4. I had a Marantz 2265 back in the day and it was a very sweet sounding receiver with plenty of power to boot. The price sounds reasonable, just be ready to spend some cash for repair and updates, something that old needs at least the capacitors replaced after all these years.
  5. LaScala's are pretty forgiving speakers for placement, my best sound was in my last home with a 22x26 room with lots of hallways and dining room off to one side about 8-9 ft apart and slightly faced in by experimenting in my listening chair, now confined to the den and bedroom for my audio equipment the LaScala's are 4 ft apart and still slightly faced in for best soundstage. Experiment on what sounds best to you in your room.
  6. Just got through building the Tuba HT horn loaded subwoofer project, a perfect match for taking care of the bottom end of the LaScala, tight deep bass that has no problem keeping up. If you have some woodworking skills it can be built complete with amp for $300 or so. http://billfitzmaurice.net/THT.html
  7. Good thinking about the shipping, never thought about that. Will try Lowes then, thanks.
  8. Anybody have a quart or more of the valspar black they could part with ? I am making a HT Tuba subwoofer and wish to match my LaScala pair. Give ma a price or pm me.
  9. Bose makes some nice products that may fill the venue.[]If anybody is interested in car-pooling the trip may be doable for me. I have a fuel efficient focus with a manual tranny if anybody is interested, i just know there is no way for me to drive the whole way. How long is this event anyways ?
  10. Just like i mentioned, your amp can be upgraded with better parts for better sound. Yes it will alter the sound, and can be customized to suit your needs. Look local first if not there are many shops willing to customize your Adcom. Such as : http://www.musicaldesign.com/MC_AdcomAmp_mods.html
  11. Also consider doing some upgrades to your current Adcom goods, Lots of options if you look around.
  12. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to understand a basic schematic anyways, if you do not have the know how to read a schematic and are just doing a basic capacitor update each part can be replaced individually to make things easy as pie.
  13. I just ordered this project myself and hope it fits the bill. Good work on the subwoofer.[Y]
  14. Looking to experiment, will this woofer and amp work in anything besides the factory box ? Maybe something horn loaded ? If i can find something that works better for my needs it would be helpfull. Could anybody offer me the specs for this woofer ?
  15. Do upgrade the xovers on the Chorus 2's for best results, they will not have the pinpoint soundstage of the LaScala but are a dam good sounding speaker without taking up the whole room. I would love to hear a pair or Chorus 2's fitted with a K55 or better midrange, i just love the lows they belt out, so tight and snappy with no sign of muddiness.
  16. WOW, that K402 is bigger than i thought, there must be some better choices out there for a reasonable sized unit to fit this combo without losing all the sound characteristics.
  17. Beauty is in the ear of the beholder. KLF series are decent, one of my starter sets years ago (among many others). Chorus II's are best power loving/size loudspeaker in my opinion, once you get those 15's pumping i can easilly make either of my CD players skip through parts of a song and the horns sing with the best of em. KG4's are my budget pick. Forte 1&2 are owned by good friends both powered by run of the mill receivers, good Klipsch sound i like to enjoy LaScala is what i find myself in front of most, get a decent subwoofer to fill in the lows or move up the Klipschladder. Pair up the Chorus 2's with the LaScala's and it makes a great sounding setup getting the best of both worlds but your soundstage dissappears and ruins it.
  18. The Classical music did not bother me since dad woke me up every weekend morning blaring the stuff from his Altec Valencia's. I brought 4 CD's with but there were many wanting to hear what they had with them, first came Buckwheat Zydeco's new one, When the levee breaks & The wrong side, track 4 is my favorite but many were waiting for the CD player. Second i threw on Alice in chains- Over now (unplugged version). Some of everything was played for all to enjoy, the afternoon and evening was very enjoyable. After seeing the size of the Jubilee's i can say you need a room built around the system, these are big honkers. WAF=0 After hearing the Jubilee's of course makes me want some, that horn was the sweetest thing i ever heard, lows were solid and detailed, overall very pleasing and worth looking into for those with room and finances. Will that horn/driver combo work with the LaScala woofer section ?
  19. Nice house and great time, had the chance to hear both systems last night and enjoyed every minute. Good to learn faces from the forum and meet people with the same passion for music. Thank you Steve for sharing.
  20. How many circuits do you need for your application and what amperage breakers will you be going with ? Rather going with one high amperage branched circuit you may be better off using multiple 12 Guage wire runs and 20 amp breakers.
