  1. I spoke to Gil yesterday, his cell phone still isn't working yet. I'm sure he would be happy to hear from forum members. Please let me know if you want his contact info.
  2. How much were they?
  3. Hopefully, Gil's cellphone will be reactivated soon and he can log onto the forum.

  5. I spoke with Gil Thursday and just finished a trip to Chicago to pick up some things. Thankfully Joe helped me load and was nice enough to drive to the suburbs and help me unload as well. I was able to grab the McIntosh gear, walnut Forte, and (3) walnut Belles. Along with several woofers crossovers, etc. I will discuss with Gil how to proceed and what to sell. I told Gil I can hold onto some of this stuff for a while until he figures out where he will be living after rehab. I wasn't able to fit the homemade La Scala bass bins, the homemade k-horn/jubilee style bass bins, or the wooden horns. The khorn/jubilee style do not need corners. There were also some homemade risers for the Forte ~12" tall. If you are interested and able to pick these up this weekend downtown Chicago please PM ASAP. They will be clearing out the apartment Monday. Again, if you wish to contact Gil, please PM me. He would love to hear from people. He trying to change facilities, but Joe will keep me updated if his contact info changes.

  7. Gil update: "Gil would love to talk to people. I think his biggest problem is boredom right now." If you would like to talk to Gil, please PM me for the contact info. Thank you. Brandon
  8. Gil update: "Gil would love to talk to people. I think his biggest problem is boredom right now." I have Gil's contact info if people want to PM me for it.
  9. I'll ask Joe for another update on Gil. COVID affected Joe's travel, so nothing has happened yet. I think we are currently planning on next weekend to pick things up.
  10. Very pretty. Please list a price.
  11. I have the ampandsound little ben with a built in volume knob. The make very nice gear.
  12. Latest Gil update: Gil is still hospitalized. He is eating normally and is off oxygen, but is still paralyzed on his left side. Mentally he is pretty good, but there are some gaps and things he is confused about. He will be going to a rehab facility soon and will be there for three to four months. What happens after that depends on how much progress he makes during rehab, but it is unlikely that he will be able to live on his own.

  14. Noted. Gil made them. I won't be able to get any extra photos/info until they are picked up. Joe is not local.
  15. The last update I received was that he is improving mentally, but still paralyzed on one side.
  16. I asked Joe if that would be a possibility as that would be great and I would just store things for Gil. However, Joe didn't think that he will be in a place where that would be an option.
  17. I am hoping not to ship anything. The crossovers might be possible, but the horns would be a bit much. If someone else local wants to help with shipping stuff, I would appreciate it.
  18. Sadly, Gil McDermott @WMcD had a stroke and will and will likely be in a nursing home when he gets out of the hospital. Gil is improving mentally, but he has a long road ahead physically. Gil has been a mainstay on this Forum for 20 years or so. I am trying to help Joe @JoeR , Gil's brother-in-law, sell his audio gear to help with Gil's expenses. Original thread: https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/204315-gil-mcdermott-needs-some-thoughtsprayers-formerly-any-one-in-the-chicago-area-want-some-speakers/ I currently only have the attached photos that Joe provided and haven't seen/heard anything, so I can't speak to the condition yet. However, I am looking to get Gil a fair price, since I think he will really need the money. Gil has: (3) walnut oil Belle (I don't know the year/crossovers yet) (2) walnut Forte 1 or 2 (I don't think they are Chorus), McIntosh gear: MC2505. (50W power amp), MR74 (AM/FM Stereo Tuner), MI-3 (maximum performance indicator; basically an audio oscilloscope) Pair of home built Khorns Pair of home built La Scala bass bins (I think there is a set of horns for these as well) Some 15" woofers Some crossovers. The items are located in downtown Chicago. We are still working on when they will be available to pick up, likely later this month. I know that the Belles, Forte, and McIntosh gear will be easier to sell. We would also like to find new homes for the homebuilt as well. Please PM me if you are interested or would like to help. Thank you. Brandon WMcD audio-1.pdf
  19. Hi All, I have been speaking with Joe @JoeR, Gil is improving mentally, but he has a long road ahead physically. I will try to help out with selling the audio gear: (3) walnut Belle, walnut Forte 1 or 2 (I don't think they are Chorus), McIntosh gear (MC2505, MR74, MI-3), some home built Khorns and La Scala bass bins, etc. I will post in the garage sale section, I only have the photos he provided and haven't seen/heard anything, so I can't speak to the condition yet. However, I think Gil could really use the money, so please PM me know if you are interested. They are located in downtown Chicago. Still working on when they will be available to pick up. Thank you.

  20. I contacted them via PM and am willing to help. I could probably store some gear in hopes that Gil will recover and be able to enjoy it in the future.
  21. Very sorry to hear the news. I'm in the Chicago area and can help if needed.
  22. Very nice. 16 ohm version of the bms-4592nd
