    Dean G upgrade for RF 7 and RC 7

    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?
  2. 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
  3. 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

    WTB - RSW-15

    I already own a RSW-15 so no demo needed although I'm always up to hear other peoples stuff.

    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.

    WTB - RSW-15

    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

  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. I've always thought higher power was to make up for the peaks in the music. Therefore the higher the power the cleaner the music. Granted the headroom would be dependant on how hard you are pushing the amp. Or put another way, the higher the power, the further away the clipping point is for the amp. Sorry I don't have the audiophile glossary in front of me
  14. I'm looking for more detail in my 2 channel music. Mainly vinyl. The vintage McIntosh MC2505 50watt amp I am using sounds good but I am wanting to step up to the next level so to speak. Please don't turn this into a cartridge, turntable, preamp or speaker wire debate . I understand all of that. I'm wondering if there is a point where you can have too much or "wasted" power in regards to headroom and clean volume, relating to a specific speaker, listening at reasonably loud volume. Granted, testosterone dictates that you can never have too much power but really, where is the break even point? I'm interested in electrical algorithm type answers, not "use whatever sounds good to you" or name brand debates. For reference I'm using the original RF-7's and considering an amp advertised at 300 wpc RMS. The speaker sesnsitivity is 102dB @ 2.83 volts/1 meter. 300wpc sounds like a lot to me but I see where some people use 1000 watt monoblocks. Is that much power an advantage to detail or is it overkill? Thanks in advance.

    How do Cornwalls compare to RF-7?

    Where are you located? Huntsville, Al
