Forum Ultra Veteran (5/9)



  1. You need to find a Phish fan (rock band) headed there this next coming weekend, will be a rather sizable influx of those coming in for Sphere 🙂
  2. Laserbadged decorator versions, 76ish.
  3. Great for Klipsch future upgrade to 2" driver setup 🙂
  4. Whether Willie smokes it anymore or not, legal states actually sell "Willie's Weed", a sativa strain called "Red Headed Stranger", the Illinois version grown by a firm that grows all of theirs organically, as well as being offered in forms that do not require "smoking". So there's something to be said for progress.
  5. As being one who was in the 90% area of the path, it dawned on me while seeing all of the vids and photos, that eclipse viewing is much like audio: That "last 10%" makes a HUGE difference and can be really hard to get to 🙂
  6. Awesome, Dean, was wondering if you got to see this.....
  7. One speaker per audio channel please 🙂 If'ns you're feeling the urge to play two sets of speakers for two channel stereo, I might suggest that it's time for a larger, more capable singular pair of speakers. If you compare "Fortes Only" at 8:58-9:15ish vs both speakers at 10:00-10:15 the"effect" you get (a wah-wah-wah-wah) on the "both" becomes apparent how this can "mess" with things a bit. That's another interesting experiment. There was a guy on here years ago who used to do this with Cornwalls (IB Slammin or something). All the same speakers so it was easier to get them to "line up". ....and that's really "where it's at". So long as the amp can drive the load, no foul trying here, even if we learn some "works/not works" along the way.
  8. It appears OP is gone, but last I checked Entertainment Expressions in Bettendorf IA had a set on demo (adjacent to Davenport) and has Heritage products.
  9. Windows 7 was an excellent operating system. Like when they actually charged you for it and didn't make you "The Product". I hated subsequent versions enough I went to Apple. Kept it until it was unsupported. When it became "free" it went to bleep. I guess since I don't use this for a job and I just need to be able to buy overinflated concert tickets on Ticketmaster and parts from Sonic Craft I guess this will be good enough. LOL. I bought a used Windows laptop (from a member here in fact) to get into the "back door" finer-points controls of my Mac home theater preamp but never did hook that in (I'm a network moron), suppose I will once I get around to that project as opposed to other more pressing matters.
  10. Giving the seller a free bump regarding the outstanding sales and service. Networks arrived expert packed and secure, and a pretty fair price, too, especially given that inflation thingy.... 🙂
  11. As an attendee of the 1999 Fiesta Bowl (aka the first BCS Championship Game)I have no issue understanding why FSU didn't get in. Remember Marcus Outzen?
  12. Not bad for PIOs........teflons seem to do better in mine 🙂
  13. The only other brand(s) I ever really considered outside of Klipsch were Altec and JBL (two sides of the same coin), particularly the vintage JBL like the Sovereign and Apollo series cabinets and similars employing the LE15/LE85-DLH175-375 midranges/077 cat's eye tweeters and other vintage horn setups of similar thinking......but ultimately when it came to the VALUE presented by the original Klipsch Heritage line of speakers, and how well those ended up being addressed in the aftermarket as well as having a pretty continuous "universal" ability to obtain service (drivers still sold by Klipsch and even Dean will build Klipsch authorized replacement networks for those line of speakers) tells me that I chose wisely and "saw the future" when deciding to invest in my Heritage cabs some 20+ years ago. While it is true that the JBL drivers are of a better class than the Heritage line used through that time, the Klipsch got more "results for the input" on the value side, and looking out into the future all those years ago told me that the Klipsch lasted longer (no surround refoams every 10 years) along with knowing that any drivers going dead otherwise would be an extreme cost that I probably could not "self insure" without brain a bank breaker in and of itself with the JBLs. It was sufficiently easy to obtain a trio of matched-driver Cornwall pairs and know that I could maintain and take care of them for a lifetime of service, and would be able to afford to "take care of them" because there were so many options in the marketplace to allow for that service to be done that the Cornwalls and Belles made sense as "life investments". Great results from affordable and common parts. There's always "better" but within the realm of "pretty damned good" and never really having to worry much about doing it all over again made it such that Klipsch was the right choice. Heritage really are "speakers for life" and the genius of the original PWK designs evident. If one kept the cabs in good shape one could completely rebuild the innards and run 'em for another 30-50 years. There's little else I could ever say that about any other product in ANY category, let alone audio, so I know I made the right choice. I literally wore out the first HT kit that drove those Cornwalls but the speakers are still here with a newer Mac core running the show. Took almost 20 years to wear out an amp but I found a way......tens of thousands of hours.....but the Cornwalls are still "The Speaker Of The House". Can't justify moving the beasts for anything else.
  14. Great seller to work with, I have his Mc MX151 that was replaced by his 160 and wouldn't hesitate to do biz again.
