  1. Good to hear there are people out there still enjoying their old Pro's just as much as I am. Ever since I got the CP-1 they've been perfect and loud as hell. It's too bad some people have problems and get discouraged about Klipsch products. Any time you build more than one pair of ANYTHING you run the chance of defects. Keep up the good work Klipsch, you have a customer for life here!
  2. I wouldn't trade my V.2-400's for anything. Since upgrading to the CP-1 they have been problem free and loud as hell. I think Amy deserves a round of applause for keeping most of the V.2-400 owners happy. As the Rocker used to say... ROCK ON! ------------------ CP-1 = New Pro's!!!!
  3. Since I became a Klipsch owner and joined this once glorious forum, I have dashed around the web looking for like minded folk who share my interests in movies and sound equipment. I found a new home last year, and its name is the DVD Shrine Forum . I hope all of the regulars here and the n00bz come on down and check it out! No pop-up ads, no flaming and a completely free speech forum for you to discuss anything you like. I still stop by here and lurk once and a while, but lately it's become a little "old" here with all the harsh complaints (yeah, I had a few when my pre-amp went south, but Amy fixed me up good!) and flaming going on. So come join the crew at the DVD Shrine! ------------------ CP-1 = New Pro's!!!!
  4. That cue cat thing was great... was expecting more bang... oh well. Page 18, here we come! ------------------ CP-1 = New Pro's!!!!
  5. Sorry about the Hofmeister/Hofmonstr mix up... I didn't know. Too bad that reply didn't push this baby to the 17th page. Oh well, maybe this one will!? ------------------ CP-1 = New Pro's!!!!
  6. Answering machine is right! I don't think I have seen a thread where Justin didn't throw in his 2 cents in the last couple of years. To be honest... I just wanted to be the one to turn this baby to the 17th page... but I feel that honor should go to the Hoffmiester... just a thought. ------------------ CP-1 = New Pro's!!!!
  7. As far as I understood Justin, Amy told me that Thorne was the only one handling the CP-1 upgrade in Canada. If those other dealers are certified... I wish I would have known, I could have shopped around! ------------------ CP-1 = New Pro's!!!!
  8. Well Frog, Justin is right... the only problem with his statement is the fact that there is only one dealer in Canada authorized to sell Klipsch parts. If that has changed in the last month it is news to me. I am a Canadian as well, and had to order from Thorne Electronics AKA Micron something or other... the name you need to know is George Thorne. Search this forum for Thorne and you will find their phone number. They will instruct you to fax/e-mail them an order with your credit card info and your signature or some type of authorization. The total in canadian funds is around $100 including shipping and taxes... well worth it if you ask me! So good luck, and if you have any more questions be sure to post them. ------------------ CP-1 = New Pro's!!!!
  9. Hehe, I would be very carefull with that Woofer Cooker track!! It uses extremely low frequencies and I have seen it destroy a set of decent speakers, not Pro's mind you, but good speakers none the less! So if your Pro's are past their warranty period... beware!! You just might really cook your woofer! ------------------ CP-1 = New Pro's!!!!
  10. Justin... I am not mad by any means. Please, think for a second. I only ask that you confirm your information before you post it and confuse and excite people for no reason. You should also include a link to that persons information or post. I didn't use harsh words, profanity or insult you, I just asked for some clarity when you post. Thanks. ------------------ CP-1 = New Pro's!!!! This message has been edited by Movie Freak on 01-19-2002 at 03:23 AM
  11. When you say working... I take it you mean, a pre-amp that doesn't have the nasty scratching symptoms? If you don't care about the volume knob creating scratching noises when turned... I have two you are welcome to. All you have to do is pay the shipping! Send me an e-mail if you are interested. jokerclan@hotmail.com ------------------ CP-1 = New Pro's!!!!
  12. Justin: In the future, I would suggest not posting "possible" or "guess" answers. Myself and many other original owners payed full price for our CP-1 upgrades, when our original set was still under warranty... I can hardly believe Klipsch would give one guy a deal and not honor it for everyone else. Amy, if you read this, please clarify that no discount was given to anyone. If a discount was instituted, I will be e-mailing you my reciept and warranty info to get money back (discount) for my CP-1. If there is no discount (which I believe), I suggest you correct Justin, and remove his comments about any discounting in the future. We all work hard for our money, and any special treatment would be ill-received by myself and other owners. Thanks. ------------------ CP-1 = New Pro's!!!!
  13. Justin: Where did this person find this deal? On Ebay? Not from Klipsch I hope... that would start a riot, I and many others that paid full price would want a few bucks back! Must have been on Ebay. ------------------ CP-1 = New Pro's!!!!
  14. Not that I am defending theRAPIST, I can however explain his nick name. There was a Saturday Night Live scene with Celeb Jepoardy, and the Sean Connery character mistook the word "therapist" for the term "the rapist". The only reason I noticed this, is because of the way he posted his nick name, with no space, theRAPIST. I am sure he meant no disrespect or ill intentions. And if I'm wrong, BLOW HIM UP!!! :lol ------------------ CP-1 = New Pro's!!!!
  15. BUY IT!! Like you I hesitated buying the CP-1 because I was already on my second original pre-amp replacement and couldn't fathom putting out extra money for something that might have the same problems. I wish I had bought it sooner! I think back to all the time I wasted using that old POS pre-amp and hearing all that static. Don't wait another minute, get the CP-1, you will be very happy. As far as transforming your set into the new 4.1's, this won't happen, but I can tell you that music sounds softer than before, less shrill. It might just be a mental thing, but I think the CP-1 improves the overall performance of the V2-400's. I get a much sharper bass snap now on MP3 files that seemed boomy before, everything just sounds better. And I don't have to tell you what a joy it is to have the headphone jacks and imput jack, very handy! BUY IT TODAY!! ------------------ CP-1 = New Pro's!!!!
  16. I don't understand why you would want to put it back under the speaker. Have you tried mounting it under you desk? I made a custom bracket for my CP-1 nd I gotta tell you, it is so nice having the controls just at the edge of your desk rather than on the satellite itself. Basically what I used were straight stainless steel brackets, and bent them to fit around the CP-1, then mounted it under the edge of my desk. If you want pictures or more details on the brackets, let me know. ------------------ CP-1 = New Pro's!!!!
  17. I had to reply to this once again, I think my original posting is on page 3 or 4 I think. This thread will live forever... even if it eventually does need its own server! lol ------------------ CP-1 = New Pro's!!!!
  18. Well, I must say that I am very pleased, borderline giddy about my new CP-1. A while back, Amy had sent me a new Pre-Amp due to the ever-present hissing problem with my original pre-amp. She had mentioned that Klipsch would replace the replacement if ever the hissing returned, but I assured her I would be getting the CP-1 if that ever happend. Well, it happend allright, a few months ago, well, almost right after, to be honest. So I waited a while, lived with the hissing (don't ask why, I don't know) and put off gettting the CP-1. Last week it arrived!!! And man what a difference! The sound is perfect, clear and I feel a little more bass, not a lot more, but more none the less! I would like to thank Klipsch for putting out a quality pre-amp finally. It has transformed my Pro's into monsters. And no hiss!! I would also like to thank George Thorne, the Canadian contact/distribution for Klipsch. After recieving my fax, I recieved my CP-1 in 2 days. Simply stunning service. If you are a Canadian and would like the CP-1 upgrade, search the forum for Thorne and you will find his number and address. To anyone putting off purchasing the CP-1 because they aren't sure if its worth the extra money, BUY IT NOW!!!! You might save yourself the trouble of buying the newer 4.1's or the 5.1's, because the CP-1 makes that much difference. REALLY! ------------------ "No I do not want a replacement pre-amp, thanks, but no thanks." This message has been edited by Movie Freak on 12-17-2001 at 02:59 PM
  19. Best PC speakers I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. I am on my second year as an owner, just got the CP-1, and I am very, very happy. ------------------ "No I do not want a replacement pre-amp, thanks, but no thanks."
  20. Thanks for the info Amy. ------------------ Movies take us to a place we would like to be and away from a place we would like to forget.
  21. Well the inevitable happened, my replacement pre-amp went to the crapper. Super static volume control and loose knobs. It was to be expected I guess. Being my second try, I am not interested in another replacement, I have come to accept the fact that I need the new CP-1 if I am going to fully enjoy my Promedia's. So this leads to two questions... 1.) I am curious if Micron Electronics ( George Thorne, Canada) has a toll free number that you know of or do I have to dial direct. I have the information that Baz and you have posted in the past, I just hate paying long distance charges if I don't have to. 2.) I was also wondering if it is possible now to order the CP-1 from Canada via your website. I thought I remembered a thread about that a while back, but I can't find it. Thanks for your speedy reply, M. Freak ------------------ Movies take us to a place we would like to be and away from a place we would like to forget.
  22. Is your friend authorized...lol! ------------------ Movies take us to a place we would like to be and away from a place we would like to forget.

  24. Alright, I'm big enough to admit when I'm wrong... you have never been harsh to a Pro owner in the BB. But since you replaced you Pro's, you have to admit that your overall opinion of them does tend to be on the negative side. But I guess that is your right. Everyones ears are diferent, just like opinions. You have owned both the 4.1's and the V2-400's not many people can say they have done that. And I guess that means some of your criticism has been based on actual experience. Your one of the lucky ones that can change speaker systems like most of us change socks. I don't know too many people that can go out and buy $700 PC speakers after purchasing 2 previous sets. I guess one tends to get tired of hearing the few people out there that are sensitive to very clear highs complain that the Pro's don't have any midrange. While to the majority of Pro owners, they have hard hitting bass and wonderfull top end. And if positioned right in their environment, the combination creates a wonderful sound stage that (like you have said) can bring tears to ones eyes. You know what, all of that aside, I had a shitty week at work and snapped, I might have read too much into your reply and decided to go Fruit-Loops on you. And now that I think about it, I really hammered some guy on the BB the other day, but he is a certified idiot who decided to crank his Pro's at 100% for a half hour and blew them up. So I'm not worried. All the best to you k27-R and I hope you stick around and ignore the grumpy old farts like me that can't keep their p!$$ and vinegar inside where it belongs. ------------------ Movies take us to a place we would like to be and away from a place we would like to forget.
  25. K27-R, I was being sarcastic when I put Bose in quotations. I know what high end is, I just can't afford it in the HT dept. But I could afford it when it came to high end for PC's. And that's the Pro's. You can't even compare good headphones to any speaker setup, it's just not the same thing, not even close. And the reason I said go to a different BB is because everything you seem to comment on is against the Pro's. I thought this was a forum for troubleshooting, praise, comments, and yes the odd bad review. But you just keep slamming the Pro' and sometimes the people that own them too. So if you have something good to contribute, great... I just haven't seen it yet. "The Pro's aren't all that and a can of hamster's" I don't call that constructive criticism, do you CatKnight? ------------------ Movies take us to a place we would like to be and away from a place we would like to forget.
