  1. I had the newer Klipsch RP 260's and IMO they were too laid back. I also had RF 5's that I found too aggressive in the treble. These RF 260's were just right and sounded better to me than the previous two. Only reason I'm selling is that KLF 20's have now replaced these in my home theater.

  2. It only happened once and that was when I had them plugged into the same surge protector......I turned them both on at the same time. Since then I've run a separate surge protector on the preamp, turn it on first, let it warm up a few minutes and then switch the amp on. Hasn't happened again.

    I wonder if someone with more tube experience than I have can answer a question for me. Does it take a few minutes for a Conrad Johnson PV2 to stabilize after flipping it on? Seems I can get some nasty feedback from it through my speakers if I turn it on immediately but if I warm it up for a few minutes before turning on my amp it's dead quiet in that regard. Sounds really good too. Just concerned their could be a problem that needs checking out. Thanks!

  5. Seems a lot of folks really like the amps from the Schitt company.......like the Aegis and Vidar. One of them runs in something similar to class A for the first 10 watts. American company with everything designed and built right here.

  6. My set of Bells came with Crite's crossovers and the upgraded DE 120 tweeter. The woofer is original. They sounded very good with my McIntosh MA 6100 integrated but I couldn't help but try running my Conrad Johnson PV2 as a preamp running into the Mac amp. Took some of the hard edge off the drivers with the upgraded crossovers that can be pretty bright. I'm really happy with the sound for now. The great thing about the big Klipsch 3 ways is being able to try so many different amp combinations with them....they're so efficient.

     

  7. Yes Madman1, that would be a pretty steep learning curve for me also since I really have no clue about bi/tri/amp active crossovers. Guess I'll have to study about them. These presently have the Crites upgraded crossovers and I have the originals also. They sound really good to me in the mids but I don't really like music blasted at high volume so I probably don't hear the harshness some speak of with the original midrange horn. Bass is full and clean on these......I kind of have them stuffed into corners which may reinforce the bass some. Thanks for giving me some new possibilities to look into.

  8. Took delivery of my Belle Klipsch about three weeks ago. After getting some listening time in I've finally discovered what everyone means when they can really hear the difference in the way a source was recorded. I've had many Klipsch speakers but these are the first ones I've had where good recordings sound magnificent and bad ones are pretty much unlistenable. But all and all I love these things. Running them with just a solid state McIntosh MA 6100 integrated. Plenty of power for them. I'm a happy camper.

  9. I gave these a try at being my main speakers in my entertainment center and they sound really great there. I'm going to keep them for now. Thanks for looking.............Joe

  10. Having the Belle Klipsch delivered tomorrow so these KLF 20's in satin black are up for sale. Never heard any rattles and I believe them to be a later manufacture date. Asking $800 for the pair and I'm in Northwest Missouri. Have a great day.244747444_243609484388136_4059374539784043071_n.jpg.e22580207e029d0767119976c3881fae.jpg245086097_247378180685136_8376878722332392530_n.thumb.jpg.af8c63d2f6a435a458a8609d1d643594.jpg244184620_618784916161723_7034818632896632768_n.jpg.fcf9d1f1ceb2d3997db656eb6625801a.jpg

  11. New Klipsch speakers are OK..........I have a pair of  RP 260f's. One thing folks should be aware of is that these won't sound like the Heritage style or the older reference speakers. the new tweeter is the major difference. Some may like it fine others not so much. The new tweeters sound much more laid back to me. In some ways they're smoother in their presentation and in some ways they're not as dynamic. Trade off I guess. For most of my two channel listening I still prefer the old models, but that's just me.
