  1. I wouldn't be surprised if that's what it is with me too. Maybe I'm just too picky....nah!
  2. Not insane in my book. If you only knew how long I have been saying that the 63's are the most 3-way sounding 2-way towers Klipsch has in it's arsenal. That is wy I have not "upgraded" to the 83's, 7's, or 7II's when i have had the chance. I know I would get a little more "bigness" for HT if I did but musically I don't think they are an upgrade. Bill Thank you! I couldn't agree more! I actually sold my tube gear and all my other speakers and just use the 63's for HT and 2 channel. I've never been this happy with my gear. To think of all the money I've spent over the years trying out different speakers, set ups, tubes and solid state and this is one of the cheapest yet is the best sounding. Go figure! I was actually thinking of grabbing the 63's in this post. Might be nice rear surrounds.
  3. My favorite speakers ever. Call me insane but they sound better than my Cornwall III's ever did.
  4. Thank you, please keep me in mind!
  5. Hi All, Looking for a SINGLE RS-42 ii. I'm not very picky about condition. Scrappy and I were able to work out a deal on a single RS42ii if anyone has a mate for it please let me know! Thank you, Rick
  6. Does the Marantz NR1402 have a L to R balance adjustment? I used the set up mic to get me started, it sounds great! But I think I'm losing it a little in my left ear as I get older. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you! -R
  7. It was buried back in my long winded answer on the first page "My cart is a Shure M91ED and the Emotiva is set to MM"
  8. That's exactly what I was doing! I almost feel if I didn't use the Emotiva that I'd get the same weak volume just from the TT. I know the Emotiva works the way it should because I hooked it up to my tubes. I just can't get it to work with the Marantz AVR. What I didn't try is something else in the same input jack. I'll try that tonight and report back. Thanks again, Rick When you hooked it up to the tubes, you didn't use the phono input did you ? Bryant No, my tube pre doesn't have a phono input. I just hooked the TT to the Emotiva phono stage and then hooked the phono stage into my pre. Essentially the same exact thing I'm doing with the Marantz ( I didn't even unplug the TT and the phono stage, just the phono stage from the rear of the Marantz AVR) That's what makes me think I'm missing something about the AVR.

  10. Mine looks exactly like the picture that USNRET posted above. I have it in the CD. I wasn't able to even use cd till I went and turned it on in the menu settings once I did that it I had to turn the volume up all the way just to hear the record. I even tried turning up the analog output in the setting but it didn't add much volume.
  11. Maybe that's what I'm missing, how do I select "full range"? Thank you, Rick your preamp has a switch (actually two) on the back that say "full range" and "high pass." Those should be on full range. There is also another switch on the back of the Emotiva that says MM and MC. MM should be selected. A moving magnet turntable is more common than a moving coil. It is also generally a higher output, so it is safe to select MM even if you have a moving coil type cartridge. Bryant Hi Bryant, I don't see the switch on the back of the Marantz but I could be missing it. Here is a link to the back of my receiver.http://us.marantz.com/us/Products/Pages/ZoomImage.aspx?img=/Assets/images/products/NR1402/XL_1402-rear.jpg My cart is a Shure M91ED and the Emotiva is set to MM. Just to be sure that I have everything hooked up correctly I took the entire setup over to my tubes and plugged it in exactly the way it's plugged into the Marantz. It sounds great on the tubes. Thanks, Rick It is on the back of the Emotiva, not the Marantz. Bryant Hi Bryant,I'm sorry I'm totally missing something as I don't see any switches on the emotiva. I checked the top and bottom and both sides. Thanks, Rick

  14. Success! We'll sort of. I can hear it but just barely with it turned up all the way. Hmmmm...?
  15. This is exactly what I'm missing! It'll be the first thing I do when I get home tonight. Thank you!!! -Rick
  16. I wasn't sure where to put this so I dropped it in 2-channel I have a Marantz NR1402 that's running my Klipsch damn well. Now I want to hook up my turntable to the nr1402. I purchased the Emotiva XPS-1 phono amp and tried to hook it up to the rear of my marantz but it doesn't seem to recognize it as a source. What am I missing? There isn't any type of "aux" to plug into. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you, Rick
  17. I just bought a RT12d...whoa is all I can say. I haven't completely dialed it in yet but what a great sub, well worth it!
  18. What a great sounding sub. I have it tuned 98% of the way I want it, slightly boomy during movies but I haven't had all that much time to play with it yet. Certainly shakes things up a bit. I feel it is well worth the $500 I spent.

    Still looking if anyone has any leads. Thanks!
  20. You did VERY good! I have been wanting to try one of those darn subs ever since i saw it. Thank you! Not sure if I got it for a good price or not but I've never seen one for sale so I figured I'd take a shot on it.
  21. The corner I have, the mic I don't. Should I try to locate a mic? Do I run the audyssey with my Marantz before I try to run the sub calibration? If you can't find a mic, I may be able to ship mine(if I can find it) to you to use and you can ship back when done. I can't remember which order you run your EQ's. I will check on that. Bill Thanks Bill! I'll take a look around and see if I can come up with one, if not I'll let you know.

  23. You did well my friend. Bill Thank you Bill! I'm going to work on setting it up this weekend. Any tips, insights, thoughts or suggestions are always welcome. I did some searching around and don't see all that many reviews or thoughts on this sub. We're these fairly hard to come by or did they not sell well? Rick
  24. I managed to pick up an RT-12d. How'd I do?
  25. Maybe he's trying to help with my quest for a sub? Nah probably not.
