    David Mancuso, RIP

    Sad news...sad news for sure. He was all about the music. He swore by Klipschorns and Koetsu cartridges. My best wishes go out to Colleen "Cosmo" Murphy as well. She must feel simply gutted...

    Leon Russell RIP

    I was a huge fan. His concerts were so much fun! I always concidered him an American music treasure. Sad day, sad day...

    Sadly Downsizing Khorns or LaScalas

    I have had LaScalas in a small music room for years. I couldn't have been happier. They are truly a remarkable loud speaker. Recently, I was fortunate enough to come across a pair of Khorns that I just couldn't pass on. I was concerned because of my small music room... I placed the Klipschorns in that room, and was totally knocked back stupid. I never heard music sound so good. Records I've listened to for years sounded fresh and new. My biggest regret is that I never even considered Khorns as a possibility because of the small room size. Knowing now, just how great they sound, even in a small room, I would have gone Klipschorn over LaScala's years ago. Would the Khorns sound better in a larger space? Absolutely. But...that's not what I have. IMHO keep the Klipschorns.

    Deleting attachments

    Hi Chad, How do I delete attachments. When I open My attachments, I can see them all, but unlike the old forum, I can't figure out how delete them. I'm at 40.3 MB of the 100MB . Not a problem now, but eventually it will be. Cheers!

    Vintage Thornens

    I have a TD-160 which I have been very pleased with. I don't currently have it hooked up, but my plans are to put together another 2 channel system with an extra pair of Heresy's that I also have sitting around. Those 70's era Thorens were/are fine TT's. Cheers!

    Heresy III Bass Questions

    Welcome!!! I own Heresys III's and Heresy's...I love they way they sound on their own. My recommendation is pick up a set, give them a listen, then add the sub if you think they need them. They truly are a remarkable loudspeaker. Cheers

    acoustic audiophile music?

    I can tell you the LP is also spectacular. Fantastic soundstaging. My tiny music room turns into Massey Hall.

    Suggestions for a good "starter" tube amp for Heresy II's

    If you really have interest in a HH Scott, there is a HH Scott 222c for sale on the forum that has been restored up to original specifications and it appears that he has some room in his price to negotiate (I assume since he states reasonable offers). I have bought items from the seller in the past and the transactions have been executed hassle free. I pulled the first post and a couple of pictures from the link below. https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/162713-fs-hh-scott-222c-refurbed-by-nos-valves-75000/

    Suggestions for a good "starter" tube amp for Heresy II's

    I'm very pleased with the way ST70'S drive my Heresys and Heresy III'S. I can't comment on the other amps you mentioned. I would also consider an H.H. Scott 222 B or C depending on condition though they are integrated amps, they do bring out the best in Heresys. Cheers
