  1. I bought a pair AK2 1986 model Klipschorn back in June of this year. The original owner had bought and installed the Crites AK2 replacement as the original AK2 had incredible oxidation inside the factory installed "monster cables". After several weeks I was not happy with the sound of the Crites network. I thought it was a bit bright and harsh for my taste. I found JEM audio on the web and contacted Jim. He sold me on updating the caps for the original AK2s. I had them installed and am now happier with the sound. I don't think they sound as good as a previous pair of AA 1976 Klipschorn that I once owned. Is that because of older ears or is it inflated musical memories? Well I guess it could be either or both. I would recommend Jim and the caps that JEM sell. Whether the caps are approved by someone other than myself make no difference to me. I like them so what else matters?
  2. Hi Folks, Considering the efficiency of the khorn is there any advantage, in relation to detail and definition, of having a high powered amp >100W?? I always thought the higher power amps made for more headroom. Where does the speaker efficiency and amp headroom lines cross? Thanks.
  3. Looking for a used set of Klipschorns. I'm in North Alabama and willing to drive for the right speakers. Thanks Wayne wilbucd@yahoo.com
  4. Hey Folks....I need to resurrect this post as I just ordered the Dayton 10 Ohm resistors mentioned above. Just to be clear.... This same 10 Ohm resister is used in parallel with the 2 Ohm resister on both the RF7 and the RC7. Am I correct?
  5. Hey folks. Quick question. I'm building a new music room. Dimensions are 16x23 with a 9' ceiling. Will the Klipschorns perform better on the 23' wall in the corners with the couch being backed up to the wall or on the 16' wall having about 6' to the wall behind the couch? Any insight is appreciated. Thanks
  6. I'm about to move to another house but will be required to store my RF-7's for 3-6 months. Does anyone have some original boxes they wouldn't mind parting with? Otherwise I guess I'll be wrapping them in blankets and hoping for the best. I'm in Huntsville, Al and would be willing to pay for shipping and maybe a reasonable fee for the boxes. Thanks, Wayne Wilburn wilbucd@yahoo.com
  7. I already own a RSW-15 so no demo needed although I'm always up to hear other peoples stuff.
  8. Black is preferred to match my other one but the other colors could work as well. My budget depends on how far I have to drive and the asking price.
  9. I need a 2nd RSW-15 to balance out my room. I live in Huntsville, Al and will drive 3-4 hours to pick up. Thanks, Wayne Wilburn wilbucd@yahoo.com

  11. For accurate I like female voice smooth and as natural as possible. You can tell if it's life like in seconds. Listening to Diana Krall's new album on vinyl just now. Very impressed with the recording. An instant favorite. I agree, female vocals, piano and strings are hard to beat.
  12. I owned a pair of Klipschorns years back. I would trade the whole 7.1 Klipsch RF system for another pair if it were just my call. Actually another set of those might not be out of the question. I have nice corners in this room.
  13. If power is not the issue then tell me what constitutes having 1000w mono block home systems? They are surely not playing louder than we are without their ears bleeding. Are some speakers just that power hungry? I spend a lot of time surfing high end systems and many of those mega watt amps are in rooms no bigger than my 19x24 room.
  14. Ok I have learned I don't know as much as I thought I did....... as usual. I will reconsider the bigger amp and do some more homework. Yes tubes have always been on the bucket list. I am currently using a Pro-Ject turntable with the Ortofon Red. Hard to spend money on a catridge that cost $700, as the Black Ortofon does, without being able to hear it first. I miss the days of high end audio stores that actually carried inventory and offered demos. Also realize that at 48 years old and a long list of rock concerts in my past it may be my ears that are actually the limiting factor.
  15. Yes I'm afraid thats going to be a better answer for what I'm looking for. Room acoustics is a black hole to me. Don't even know where to start.
