  1. I went and grabbed it after I saw this post earlier today. Looks really awesome and sounded great. I'll be hooking it up to the Lascalas soon.
  2. Sold for $351.00....You?
  3. I re-capped with caps from Bob Crites, so I should be good there. I'll try and get pics to show how they are positioned and some other shots of the room too. Did some testing a couple days ago using my Denon with an Emotiva UPA-2 amp and using the graphic EQ and some tone adjustments I brought some better sound out. Oddly enough if I stood at the farthest point back on the right side about a foot towards center I found the best bass. I was the only place in the room I felt I had what I was looking for. So could it just be my room? The front wall is 16ft across, the room is 22 ft deep. The right side up front has a 5 ft wall that then opens up wider about another 3 feet. That right side wall is just sheet rock and framing with nothing on the back side. Is it my weak wall? The other side is sheetrock against cement foundation (basement). Should I fortify that right wall or maybe consider heavy false walls as shown in the Dope from Hope. Maybe I'm losing all my bass into the room somehow and false walls would project the low end more effectively out into the room. I open to all options, its a music room only an no one to shut me down. Maybe enclose the backs with some heavy 3/4 plywood?
  4. So I had already removed the ST70 from my Khorns downstairs and hooked them up to my Cornwalls in the living room before I had a chance to switch speaker wires and try them to see if they were out of phase. With the Cornwalls the amp plays great, full rich sound with plenty of volume. Now I'm really stumped why the Khorns sound so thin, they really have almost no bass. Should I open it up and inspect the woofer, maybe it has an issue? These are 41 years old. Maybe the speakers themselves are wired out of phase and are cancelling each other?
  5. The 16 ft wall is my only option due to the layout of the room. I had Bob Latino build mine with upgraded caps does that mean I have the Russian PIO caps? And thanks for the input Wdecho, I didn't think to try that hopefully later or tomorrow I'll give that a shot. If that doesn't make a difference should I expect that I have a problem with the crossover? Should I inspect the woofer and what do I look for and test for? Thanks
  6. So I bought an Emotiva PT-100 preamp and hooked my ST70 up to my Khorns which are in my basement in perfect corners but the floor is carpet over cement. I still only have about 20 hrs on the amp but I have very little bass. I've cranked up the bass adjustment and its still weak and totally not good enough. I hooked up my THTLP sub and of course it was great but I just can't believe my Khorns sound so bad without a sub. Is it the cement floor? Is it the preamp? Is it the ST70? I have the Khorns spaced 16ft apart in perfect corners and the room is 22 feet deep. I really expected to be blown away and now I don't even want to listen to it without the sub on.
  7. Looks like he has some interesting speakers in the backround too...what are they?
  8. This was my experience, if you use risers you will definitely need subs. The bass disappears when you raise them
  9. Not mine.... https://denver.craigslist.org/ele/d/klipsch-cornwalls/6547674035.html
  10. I tried the same one a few years back and it blew one channel the instant I turned it on, returned it the next day. Never even had a chance to hear it once. Hopefully your luck is better and I just had a faulty amp.
  11. So I just bought a brand new VTA ST 70 fully assembled and have about 2 hrs on it so far. I got the volume control so right now I'm using it without a pre amp. Right now I'm using it with a pair of Lascalas and the clarity and detail are a major step up from where I've been. I am a little disappointed with the bass so far, do I need more hours on the tubes to break in? Bob suggested the el34's for heritage speakers so that's what I went with. Any thoughts on that?
  12. I was thinking the same thing...seems low. Don't really see them for sale very much.
  13. Take a look here for everything you need... https://critesspeakers.com/
  14. Run pre outs to new slave amp first, then pre outs from slave amp to sub, maybe that would work.
  15. It's ok to pay an amount that is considered "too much" if you are considering it to be artwork in your opinion. As long as you don't want to turn around and re-sell it who cares. Just realize you may never get anyone else to pay that amount if you decide to go a different direction down the road.
  16. Would this work? http://www.schiit.com/products/sys
  17. I was looking at this exact model today, new they are about $1500 and he offers some customizing for not much more money. I'm curious how you are liking the amp. I'd be using mine to power my Khorns or Lascalas. I'm unsure if I'll get the bottom end I love with so few watts. What are your latest thoughts?
  18. Those Cornscalas look badass stacked up like that.
  19. Thanks. No nothing else on the chopping block for now wish I could keep it all.
  20. Yes timing is everything.......and mine just sold on CL before I could get an ad up here in the garage sale section.
  21. Saw this thread and thought I'd post here first before I put my ad up. I have Quartets that I'm going to list here soon and on CL as well. I'm on east side of Denver if there is any interest before I get an ad together let me know. Speakers say QUR 00 for type and they have sequential serial #s, date of 8-31-90. Let me know if there are any questions. Thanks John
  22. Seems like all those upgrades are easily worth $100 extra, I'm guessing you bought it online...where did you get it?
  23. Man that sure looks like a nice amp. What are the differences and how does it compare to the Yaqin MC-13s?
  24. What did you think of the Cornwall? Did it look to be in good shape and did you give that a listen too? You think he still has it?
  25. I recently changed the location of where I plug mine in and I developed static. I plugged into a power strip with a cheap lamp from walmart and I had a buzz through the speakers that was never there before for the last 5 years. I unplugged the lamp and all is well.
