  1. Welcome back! The RF-83’s and RF-7 III are supposed to be wonderful speakers, you obviously have great taste. I joined right around the time you left:)

    What I Got Today!

    This new TV has gotten my to start adding to my 4K collection. Got a great deal on these used, earlier today: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. In the Seattle area, a very nice looking pair of Black RF-63’s got listed for $100. These are some of the best speakers I have ever owned, never should have sold them. The next day, a very nice pair of Oak CF-3’s with 15” Velodyne subwoofer got listed for $200. It sounds like I missed out on both in a very short amount of time. I am hoping someone here grabbed either or both listings.
  5. Probably getting ready to mix it up again so I figured I’d share how my setup is currently set up. Added the art today, the 65” OLED TV a few months ago now and picked up the Mythos ST’s and Mythos Ten a few weeks ago. Been loving everything so far and I have really started buying more 4K movies as a result. And yes, Klipsch is still my favorite brand of speakers:) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Haha, thanks guys! Hopefully some Palladium bookshelfs and matching Center. Should never sold the Natural set I had.. I am still not totally sold on selling these as I love them. Yes, they definitely need a subwoofer or two but what system doesn’t:)
  7. Like the title suggests, I figured I’d test the waters to see if anyone out there would be interested in buying my 3 650’s. They are in great shape and I can get photos but they are in my storage so that wouldn’t be until someone commits. I love these speakers but it is a total waste having them just sitting in storage, which they’ve been doing about 2 years or so. Pricing them fairly at $1,600 + shipping for the three speakers. I live in Bothell WA, 98021, if someone wants to get a shipping estimate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I would probably just avoid “bi-amping” all together. I have tried both ways and the only thing I ever thought I was doing, when bi-amping, was putting more strain on my receiver. Maybe just try running one set of speaker wires to each speaker and use the jumpers. Just another thing to try out but I doubt bi-amping is the reason they sound different.
  9. Go on YouTube and search for “subwoofer crawl”. This will walk you through the steps, to help you find the best spot for the subwoofer to go in your room. You can spend $2K + on a subwoofer but if it isn’t placed in the correct spot, it might not sound any better than a $200 sub that is placed in the optimal spot. Now if that spot doesn’t line up with how you want the room to look, that’s a whole different problem. Looks of my system is nearly as important to me as the way it sounds so I have to compromise on speaker size and on placement.
  10. I might have to pick your brain, when it comes time to pull the trigger but I am most likely a year out. The M2 is definitely on the short list. I have owned my Stage 1 Audi S3 about 3 years now and I still smile every time I get behind the wheel. I just really like car shopping, almost as much as speaker shopping:/
  11. DCT’s have better performance. The top performance Mustang should come standard with the top performing trans. I agree though, a manual option would be nice for those who like to row. To be honest, I’d just go with a 350R over the 500. The 350R will be worth more on the collector’s market down the road and it only comes with a manual. My current car has a DCT and it is way more engaging and fun than normal automatics. My next car, possibly a certified M2 Competition, will definitely have a DCT. This GT500 sure is impressive though. Just saw a video of one running mid 10’s in the 1/4, right off the assembly line. But if I had to choose, the upcoming Corvette ZO6 would get my money, if I had enough. Haha. Best time ever, to be a performance car person!
  12. That is a great sounding speaker, I listened to it a few weeks ago. I can tell you that the Bose 700 with matching 700 subwoofer sounds much better. It should, obviously, at nearly 3x the price. I have been a Bose hater for many years but this new 700 soundbar appears to be a game changer. The truth is that soundbars are shrinking the gap between full sized speakers/systems but there’s definitely still a gap.
  13. Soundbar technology has come a long way these past couple years. I was in BB the other day and listened to the BOSE 700 soundbar and matching 700 bass module. I was totally surprised by the sound this simple and clean looking system put out. My friends all have these huge and beautiful homes and nearly all of them have Sonos soundbars. As much as I hate to admit it, they all sound very good especially when the subwoofer is turned on. I could unload all my gear, buy a soundbar and pocket a couple thousand but I just can’t give up my passion for buying and testing new gear. I actually like trying gear out more than I like using it, so I am a bit of a weirdo..
  14. What exactly is your system missing? If I were in your shoes, I’d likely upgrade the center to a 504C. I think that would make the single biggest sound improvement on a budget. Upgrade the towers to the matching towers down the road, as budget allows.
