  1. Let me clarify. When Davis and I talked, we used the word overkill. In my post I said power. A poor choice of words. Sorry for the confusion, I'm not the brightest bulb
  2. I forgot to mention I'm at a garage sale yesterday, the guy has his stereo in his garage. I was asking if he any more components unside for sale, and he tell me he sold "some big *** Klipsch speakers built for corners" for $50 a couple months ago. That's how I run. LOL. What's the saying? a day late.....
  3. Dennie Right now, I'm running Heresy IIs thru a Denon. Not the best deck, but when the Nak TA-2 went down I decided I needed to upgrade. The room is 16x24 The plan right now is to bring the wall in, to create walls around the khorn center. While I'm at it I thought I would build in a recessed area around the center for a 65" flat screen. And build bookcases in to the same wall for my library. Now, I think maybe building in an area for the components would look pretty cool. I'm looking for 3 horns to start, for the fronts and center. When I see how it's sounding, I plan on adding 2 khorns for the rear. Now I'm wondering if having the 2 horns as fronts with Khorn center, if the sound will be greatly affected having the center set back from the 2 fronts. The Sherwood seems to fit the HT plan, from what I'm reading, I almost don't need an amp for the 7.1, the Sherwood puts out 7 channels @100 per channel. If I wInd up buying an amp, I really like the TAD-60 Oh yea the important $ question. I'm planning on around 10k to start. The Sherwood is $1800 retail, TAD-60 I'm hoping to get for around $700 and then the Horns. It seems like they are running around 2k per pair, so...... I'm in no hurry, I just need to get started on the wall unit and go from there. I keep looking for the horns, i'm hoping I can find somebody who has 4 cosecutive #s and the 5th will have to be close in finish. Funny, the more I think about it, the more work I'm creating, and the more the price is going up. Thanks for the input Mark
  4. I'm leaning toward the Sherwood Newcastle R-972. Comments please TY Mark
  5. So I've finally decided to upgrade my system. Davis and I agree you can never have too much power. So I think I'm going to bring the long wall in, so I can have Khorns in the corners and as a center. Eventually I'd like to add 2 more horns in the rear. Over the center I want to put the LED TV. The questions are: 1 Has anyone tried this and how well does it work? 2 What receiver would you recommend I buy to drive this, both for stereo and HT? 3 Finally, I think I'm going to need an amp or 2 to power this. The TAD-60 that ragingbull let me hear sounded amazing, recommendations please TY Mark

  8. I finally decided to try switching out the Nak deck for the old Denon AGAIN. The Denon still flies and the system is running. Now I just have to figure out what's wrong with the Nak. Oh and thanks to ragingbullwinkle I need to buy tubes, Khorns, LaScalas, 3 more Heresy II. And maybe a Mac 2300. That will get me started. LMAO Many thanks to everyone for their help and patience Mark
  9. Thanks for all your help. Sorry for not replying sooner, it's just been busy, which I won't complain about. The system still isnt getting it done. I think it might be in the deck, when everything is running, the system powers off. Almost like a fuse that is shorting out. Any ideas out there? Thanks again
  10. The Nak deck is a TA2. I took everything down, and started from scratch. The receiver works fine and so do the speakers on FM. In fact, they still sound great after not listening to them for a while. Added the CD player, it starts shutting down. Add the double deck and everything shuts down. Powers off everything. So now what? Am I looking for a short inside? Thanks to everyone for the help, the good news is the speakers are still beautiful. The bad news is the repair shops are thieves, but I will get over that. LOL Mark
  11. The last thing I changed was the Nak CD player. So I dont know how that would have any effect. Switched to a high end Sony against my better judgement, but the con artists told me it was the best match Ideas? Mark
  12. Yea, I was being polite in here. $100 for the pair? Told him to F*** OFF And the guy who told me I needed all new hifi? He got pretty much the same answer when I returned his unit. These are suppose to be reputable repair shops. Live a while longer and I might start catching on lol Thanks again Mark
  13. Thanks to everyone for the ideas. Time to go through everything AGAIN! Thanks again Mark
  14. I'm going through everything AGAIN! lol TY Mark
  15. I never thought of the caps. I've tried everything I could think of, but after getting frustrated, I forgot everything I've done TY Mark
  16. Humming comes from 1 speaker, not immediately. As soon as it starts I shut it down. I need to check the amp, maybe one of the channels is bad. You would think that 2 supposed reputable repair shops would check that out. Instead they sell me new equipment( which I returned) and then offer$100 for the pair. I will give it a try, although I think I already did that. Thank you, Mark
  17. So I am going out of my mind. I have a pair of 1988 Heresey speakers that I bought new. I was running all Nak (Nakamichi amp, cd player, etc) through it for years. I Klipped it out a couple times, but its always been good. Now, when everything is hooked up, I get a humm and then it goes out. I took it to a couple of competent repair shops, 1 said it was the reciever that was shot, so I bought a new Yamaha. That was $800 that did nothing. Next shop tells me the speakers are shot, they will give me $100 for the pair. I thought the wires from the receiver to the speakers might be crossed, but nada. Is it posssible the wires are old and corroded, and that's making it happen? I thought it might also be a fuse in the Nak deck, which I had changed once before. Any suggestions? Thanks for helping save my sanity
