  1. Sometimes an invention is perfect right from the get go. The Klipschorn, the Fender Stratocaster, the Victor mouse trap all come to mind. All from someone's genius mind. Very gifted individuals indeed.
  2. We've heard that a the IV version will be out soon. What do you predict the differences will be? I predict they will get it to go down to 32hz again like the earlier versions, still with a passive in the rear. And a return to the PWK badge instead of Forte script.
  3. Sounds like the C4's stirred your soul. Go for it! Hard to deny those big beautiful cabinets look killer, and sound awesome. May your Heritage decision be the right one!
  4. That explains it. But still don't understand how a smaller speaker box gets down lower. Even the Forte II or III don't get down to 32hz. The Forte 1's ...always will be awesome to me. I bought my pair new in 1988. PWKlipschaholic!
  5. I don't have an audiophile ear. I'm just a seat of the pants hi-fi enthusiast. I could be just as happy if I kept my Forte's. I did not notice any big differences in mids, highs, or tonal balance. Like I said, the Chorus' sounded very similiar to the Forte, just fuller. And depending on the source music and amp, the C's can dish out the bottom end with plenty of authority. I believe the F1's go down to 32hz, the C2's down to 34. Correct me if I am wrong.
  6. I had Forte I's for about 25 years before a scored a mint pair of Chorus II's. I played them side by side to compare. While the Chorus had a bigger, fuller overall sound, the Fortes went deeper. My source music was Declan by Jeff Beck, which has some very strong and deep keyboard bass. With the Chorus', my raised foundation wood floor just did not vibrate with the same deepness and authority as with the Forte's, when those low notes were playing. The good news is, I sold the Forte's to my pal, so I still get to enjoy them when I am at his crib. I do love the Chorus's just the same.
  7. I am self employed as a pest management professional. I go to Joe's on a regular basis. Marcus Miller is another client. I have a cool job.
  8. I was eyeballin' various Collings D2H dreadnaughts before I pulled the trigger on the Taylor. The Collings cost about 3k more. Not that they aren't worth it. I guess I will just have to get one a little further down the road. My electrics are from Don Grosh, Doug Kauer, Collings, Brian Monty, Gibson and Fender. Good grief! Merry Christmas!
  9. Actually I haven't. I can't afford the vintage stuff. I drive by there once in awhile. I have a nice collection of more modern premier guitars, mostly electrics. My client Joe Bonamassa has a nice vintage collection though, to put it mildly!
  10. A Taylor 717 acoustic guitar.
  11. I'm not convinced that rap is actually music. Perhaps as an art form, ok.
  12. I noticed while watching the movie (on Netflix) that the soundtrack was killer. By Hans Zimmer & David Fleming. Sure enough, Tidal has it. I love great soundtrack music as an alternative. This really puts your system thru it's paces. Recorded superbly. Enjoy!
  13. Now it is Saturday for cryin' out loud! Where are your Khorns already? 😁
