  1. Hi fahad, welcome to the Klipsch forums. All three are good choices and are known to work well with Klipsch. The Marantz has a reputation for sounding better for music then the Denon. I own the Marantz SR6011 and it sounds good and works good. It has more options than I have ever used and is a good choice if you ever want to change to Atmos. I run mine in 5.1 bi-amping the front speakers. I don't know anything about the Yamaha so I don't have an opinion on it.
  2. Interconnects vs speaker wire

    I will say "no" it makes no difference. Then I will contradict myself. I used to have a nice Nakamichi tape deck that came with Nak branded RCA cables. One day when after moving equipment around I couldn't find the Nak cables so I used cheap RCA cables from Radio Shack and the sound suddenly became muffled and dull. I switched to the Nak cables when I found them and there was an instant, dramatic improvement in clarity. My take from all that is if you have expensive designer cables it won't necessarily improve the sound, but using cheap RCA cables NO DOUBT can degrade the sound. If you have good quality RCA cables or good quality speaker wire they should both work about the same.
  3. Hey, I tried...

    That's me with everything! I can't even buy a loaf of bread at the store without looking at, at least six loaves to make sure I'm getting the best sale price and latest expiration date. Congrats on the Christmas present to yourself. You deserve it.
  4. Best banana plugs/speaker wire and sub cable?

    The cost on the GLS site is $50 for the 20 pack. With the 15% discount of $7.50 brings the price down to $42.50. They are also available from Amazon for $36. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000O8AHLA/ref=ox_sc_act_title_4?smid=AD6O342M484G6&psc=1 Still, I appreciate the heads up on the discount. I'm always looking for a deal.
  5. Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Official Thread

    I zipped right by your spoilers before reading. FYI there is a Spoiler feature you can insert ^^^. You guys are lucky I have discipline. I haven't seen TLJ yet, I'm waiting for my date to decide she has time. Maybe Sunday. In the meantime I am deliberately avoiding all spoilers, something I've been doing for the last week. I usually like to know what's going to happen but everything I've seen says "don't watch spoilers" so that is what I'm doing.
  6. Forte III listening fatigue

    Fabulous! May The Curve be with you...
  7. Internet slowing down on several sites

    Agree! My provider is Suddenlink and they are weasels! I had 50/5 and after I complained new customers were being charged $50 for what I have to pay $140 (internet + HD cable) they "upgraded" me to what they said was the minimum speed 200/20. Every time I call or Chat they give me a different story. I think for streaming 15 mbps recommended. My 200 mbs service is way more than I need. I just can't get less and there is no competition in my area so unless I want DLS at 5 mbs I have no alternative.
  8. Best banana plugs/speaker wire and sub cable?

    I'll do that. I just bought a dozen banana's on Ebay but I want some more for the living room setup. I found six pairs of Mediabridge deadbolts on Ebay for half the usual price, brand new. I paid $12 shipped, usual price is $25. A guy had taken them out of the package so they were sent to me in a plastic zip-lock bag in a small bubble wrap envelope. They install easily, lock solidly and worked with my 12 awg Monoprice wire which has a very thick plastic sheath. That wire is so large they won't fit the Monoprice banana plugs.
  9. Internet slowing down on several sites

    I just ran speednet.net. I got my usual 8 ms ping, 217 up, 21 down. My internet package promises 200/20. If the Klipsch site is running slow, I can't tell. It seems the same to me, almost instantaneous.
  10. Forte III listening fatigue

    "...and I don't have listening fatigue..." There. Fixed it for you.
  11. Forte III listening fatigue

    You might be right and I could certainly understand if Klipsch wanted to keep that info confidential. From my admittedly ignorant position, I don't see what difference it would make if it were public or not. Those values in that combination would only work on that particular sized box, with those particular drivers. Just a thought.
  12. 12” vs 15”

    No wires, no clutter. Very clean front end! A 15" sub behind the couch would help to fill out the room nicely. When set up properly you won't even hear the sub directly, you'll just have more solid bass seemingly coming from the L/C/R, and more dynamics off the low end. I have a DIY 15" sealed sub behind my couch. Mine is against the wall and firing into the center of the room perpendicular to the speakers' orientation.
  13. Cherry Cornwall... Las Vegas

    I thought maybe he was in IS. Go data loss? Godata loss? The point is there is sometimes more than one way to look at the same thing. Must be a lesson in life there someplace. What ever the avatar means, y'all are being mean to him, give him a break. He's new here so he doesn't know we're always right. (not speaking directly to you my friend, just preaching over your shoulder to the choir, mostly tongue-in-cheek.)
  14. Need To Chose Between RF-7II And III

    I want to say "Chris." In a previous post I also mistakenly credited Roy with the fabulous RF-7 III design and I was almost immediately slapped to the mat for the faux pas. Don't make a mistake around this crowd!
  15. Klipsch Belles--West Virginia

    Did I win? I bid 1100 on each pair around 4p today then went to racquetball and didn't check the outcome until a few minutes ago. A couple of guys were in a bidding war so I knew my bid would not hold up. I missed my guess that they would go for about $1500 each. My Heritage spreadsheet says the average for Belles is $1762, so whoever got them paid fair market price, but didn't get a "deal."
