  1. I have the CF -3's version1's with several mods based on some great feedback from this thread - bracing, dynamat on the tweeters, and had the crossovers updated by Bob Crites. I also ended up refinishing them. I recently upgraded to a marantz AV 8802a and power these bi-amped with Parasound 2225's v2 and boy do they sound awesome. Wish I had an opportunity to grab the cf-4's but I am completely happy with the sound.
  2. I had a 9090DB and had it fully restored, I only have high praises for it. I had to downsize and free up some space and it was time to let it go. I was maintaining two seperate systems and the amount of equipment and speakers I had was a bit much, I still regret getting rid of it........ definitely a fine piece of vintage audio.

  4. I ended up pulling the trigger on a pair of Parasound 2125's V2. Looked at the Halo but had to keep it to a certain budget. Thank you everyone.
  5. I appreciate the feedback and input everyone .
  6. Looks like I narrowed my options down to either the Parasound 2125 or the Emotiva XPA -2. I'm leaning towards the Parasound.
  7. The OP is clearly on a budget, not spending serious money, and is not a delusional audiophile, so what's your point aside from insulting the entire forum? Thanks for the post. I was kind of confused by what I was reading. By no means am I delusional audiophile. Just an A/V enthusiast of 20+ years, who is looking to make an upgrade and wants to reach out to the community so I can make the most informed decision possible based on member's past and present experiences.....
  8. One stereo amp per side, bi-amping the cabinet (lows/highs). I am assuming, of course, but that's how I read it. I've also always liked the Parasound gear. Bruce Yep that's exactly my set up. Sounds like I need to with better quality even if it means lower power since the epic's are 100db efficient.
  9. sorry for the confusion. I'm running one amp per speaker and the speakers are bi-amped. I hope that makes sense.
  10. Investing in tubes, is out of my price range unfortunately....
  11. Between the two I've alreday invested $400 dollars in repairs. And one now needs its powerboard fixed which will be an easy $200 more. These beasts are close to 30 years old so it's like dumping money into a car. The reason I was looking into the Emotiva's was because of the price to value ratio and wanting to get something at least as good as the Pioneers. I'm not looking to break the bank but I was always impressed with Parasound. I'm keeping my options open, and willing to hear what my fellow Klipsch community would suggest.
  12. I have two Pioneer Elite M 90 amplifiers powering a pair of Epic CF 3's. The Pioneers are starting to show their age and instead of investing more money in fixing them, I was wondering if it would be wiser to upgrade to either a pair of Emotiva XPA 2's or XPA 200's or stick with the Pioneers. If money were no object, I'd be looking at Parasound. Thanks!
