    Look for the Jeff Beck documentary on Showtime, Jeff Beck: Still On The Run. I thought it was excellent.

    Is Neil Diamond...

    He also played a Romulan, Mark Lenard that is, not Neil Diamond. https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1GCEB_enUS820US820&biw=1435&bih=980&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=dHtQXKijFq6xggf7mpu4Cw&q=mark+lenard+as+a+romulan&oq=mark+lenard+as+a+romulan&gs_l=img.3...95465.100170..100634...0.0..0.79.732.14......0....1..gws-wiz-img.......0i24.qSBklMFt-cc#imgrc=SJZYYgR_gTmUsM:
  5. Sounds like a great decision Malcolm. I am running original1987 Forte with the Crites upgrades in my apartment and am very happy with them. When you get yours, post some pictures, we here on the forum love pictures.

  7. Malcolm, try to find a shop to audition some Klipsch Heritage speakers to see if the horn loaded sound agrees with you. I think the nearest authorized dealer is in Jersey. Two things to remember, McIntosh & Klipsch are a natural pairing and when it comes to Klipsch speakers, go big or go home. A notion most members here would agree with.
  8. Welcome to the Klipsch forum. I have had Klipsch speakers in various apartments in Manhattan for years, with no complaints form my neighbors. One thing to remember is that Klipsch are incredibly efficient and as such, given your room, the vast majority of your listening will be done under 1/2 a watt. I have had Chorus II, Cornwall II & Forte in apartments and have been happy with all of them, although they were overkill.

    CL: Klipsch Chorus 1 - $675 (PARRISH) FL

    You have to admit those are in excellent shape, a good deal for someone.
  10. I have been strictly solid state all along. As I get older I am looking to simplify my systems, not make them more compicated. I will strip them down to Integrated amps, CDP's and speakers. I do not see tube rolling in my future. If anything it will be farewell to tape decks, EQ's, Tuners, and Turntables. The "KISS" theory, keep it simple, stupid.

    Mint Musical Fidelity M2si Integrated!-SOLD!

    I am sure someone will be along shortly to help with posting your pictures for you, that won't be me as I am fairly inept with computers. Pictures will surely help your sale as will an asking price. GLWTS.

    2018 was a big step for me, I actually SOLD some equipment, a Yamaha CR-820 receiver and a pair of Klipsch WB-14 speakers. I had always loved that Yamaha CR series, thinking it was among the best looking of the monster receiver era. The WB-14 were just real sharp bookshelf speakers that over delivered, (as usual with Klipsch.) Well 2 months later I haven't bought anything else and I am fine parting with the gear..... Really, I am OK with it..............
