  1. Sure would of liked to see all three end up in Chicago but wow what a trio. Add just a few fill-in players(which they already have a couple) who want to win a title and holy cow. Do I hear 4-peat or 5-peat or more. Just go ahead and send the Heat to win a gold medal for us!
  2. If you really want to "rock" it would have to be a Crown K series or a QSC PLX series amplifier.
  3. Chorus II's are the same way. With my Crown K2 running full tilt my 15 inch woofers barely move.
  4. Cool. It's definitely a classic and worthy of a nice frame![Y]
  5. Oppo needs to be left at full volume. Thats what they relayed to me years ago.
  6. Welcome back fellow Chorus II fanatic.[Y]
  7. Yeah, someone needs to explain that philosophy to the city of Chicago.
  8. Absolutley. Also controlling a woofer in a well designed speaker sure has its payoffs. I couldn't get my Cornwalls to tighten up even setting them outside. [N]
  9. Not confusing anything. Forte's work better and sound tighter in a smaller room than chorus (or cornwall) do. The bigger Klipsch need more room to breathe, and not to boom. Well I wasn't assuming that we were listening to our Klipsch speakers in a closet. And If I did put the Chorus II in the closet with the death grip the Crown K2 has over the woofers I would probably just hurt myself. To the OP if I was only going to use 45 watts I would choose 45 high quality tube watts and call it a day. Maybe toss in a sub.
  10. You must be confusing the Chorus II with the Chorus I or Cornwall. Theres no flab in a Chorus II. Chorus II has a very lean bass which some folks consider it to be bass shy. But add some watts and she lights right up. Actually with the Forte II dropping to 32 hz it has a lower perceived bass but actually I found it to be a tad loose compared to the Chorus II. Another reason I chose the Chorus II. Can't stand loose bass. Definitely a pet peeve with me.
  11. I've used the Harman Kardon 930 which is actually rated at 45wpc. I believe the little 430 is rated at 25wpc. To do structural damage so to speak you really need to move up to the big seperate amps. My Chorus II's see a clean 500 wpc and theres no problem with bass from the 15 inch woofers. When I demoed the Quartet, Forte II and Chorus II I found the sound just got bigger as you moved up the line. All of them are basically voiced the same. I like a nice rock solid kick drum and the hard smack of a snare.
  12. That would be Thursday August 14th, 1993 (226th day of 1993)
  13. The only thing a JBL L80 has over a Chorus II is distortion. You want to feel the bass of a Chorus II add a QSC SRA 2422 or a Crown K2 for amplification.
  14. What equipment did he use to demonstrate the capablities of the Chorus II's? You wouldn't believe the difference an amp or preamp and the amount of power can make when rocking out with a pair. No offense to Jason, but if he is still using that Adcom gear, which I've used every amp they've ever made, there is another level of performance to be obtained from those speakers. Especially if you are wanting to rock out.
  15. I prefer the hard sound myself. At low volumes it still jars my teeth. Love it! You might be a Cornwall fan. A litter slower fuller and bigger sounding bass.
  16. I'm with ya Pete. Pretty high on my playlist as well. But the no drums or rock from the 60's through the 90's really cracks me up. Hell what else is there to play on a pair of Klipsch.
  17. I think that pick is going to surprise you. He just played for an idiot of a coach with no offensive line and still was one of the best in the country. The boy has an arm and doesn't make a habit of throwing picks. I agree that he could start.
  18. If you like Acurus you really need to give an Aragon a try.
  19. There is alot more money than that sitting in the room pictured. Double that to start.
  20. How are the 970s or 971s. I have no personal experience but those were the first generations of Oppo and are what put them on the map so to speak. They have all received great reviews.
  21. For that kind of money I would really try and talk your dad into an OPPO 980. I've been very satsified for quite some time.
