  1. The woofer diameter on it's own is too big for the 10" woofers, not to mention the horn. Plus for the cost and effort, I'm not sure why you wouldn't just buy the towers anyway. If you want RF-7 III's, buy RF-7 III's.
  2. Premium is up to 320 kbps bit rate. Hi-Fi generally is somewhere between 1411-2600 kbps and either 44.1 or 48 kHz depth.
  3. Considering my RB-5's are badged in 2000 - I'm not sure that assessment tracks. Klipsch, however, does say that the RF-7's entered production in 2001. https://web.archive.org/web/20121106030515/http://www.klipsch.com/rf-7-floorstanding-speaker If these are indeed from 2006 - they are some of the last.
  4. I used a pair of RSX-4's with RF-3's and RF-25's for a period of time. I didn't have any real issues with that. The RSX-5's are....something special.
  5. That's not correct unless the H2 is assignable. And if it is assignable you'd need to remove the straps - but that configuration is also unnecessary. You only need to use one set of those terminals. You could, but again, that is not necessary.
  6. Not sure what the question is. There's 2 speakers in the R-26FA, you only need to connect two terminals. See the diagram I posted in this thread. You connect the stand-alone terminals to height channels, and one of the lower 2 to the main. No, you should be using the copper strap to connect the two lower terminals to each other and run only one set of wires from that lower set to your AVR. See the diagram.
  7. "I'm upset with this product, so I'm automatically smarter than the engineers who made it." Isn't the internet wonderful?
  8. Count me 100% interested/signed up. As much as I don't mind Tidal, the interface of Spotify is much nicer imo. Now if only it'd integrate with Roon...
  9. Oh, little THK - you had no idea how quickly GS-11-01 was going to come for you. Still waiting on giving the Klipsch forum members tours.
  10. That was also my understanding, but I lack firsthand knowledge of the RF-7 updates - only hearsay.
  11. The RF-7's have a decent upgrade available, but the RC-7 shouldn't need much of anything. That crossover is one of the better built designs, and I wouldn't mess with it. I know Bob had done a number of RF XO updates, but I'm not sure if anyone has taken over that, and I'm not sure if Dean is still in business either. The only real meaningful upgrades to the RF-7's would be the XO.
  12. Sale pending... we'll see how it goes.
  13. I just watched for the flyover - the only good part of the Super Bowl imo anyway...
  14. Sounds good! Let me know. The UPA line is still pretty solid with the toroidal transformers - it's why I never wanted to go with their Gen III stuff. The Parasounds that have been replacing these have also had the toroidal units in them. Easy selling point for me.
  15. I actually have not noticed that issue with the UPA-5. At least what pop is there is very quiet, and that's with it powering an RC-7 and four RS-3's.
  16. Up for sale is my last piece of Emotiva gear. I started phasing out my Emotiva stuff a few years ago in favor of Rotel/Parasound combinations. This one is the last piece to go - it has been replaced with a 5125. It's in great condition - I'm the second owner (that I know of). Missing the ears, but that's easy enough to recover (it has the screws though). No glaring scratches, dents, or dings. It's in real pretty shape. Includes original box - I'd have to dig it out of storage. Thing is a beast - for those who don't know - so prepare for about $90+ on shipping unless you're in driving range. Location: Eastern Iowa Asking: $550 + PayPal (3%) + ship, for forum members (will waive PayPal & Ship for local pickup) Condition: Gently Used (under 20 hours of runtime in current configuration) Cosmetic: 8/10 Function: 10/10 Includes: Box, unit, power cable
  17. Life has been quite the rollercoaster. Haven't been on the forums since June - but that's mostly because my attention has been everyplace else just about.
  18. I have to say, I'm extremely upset. I came back and the first thing that popped up was this terrible news. Bob was an immense help to the few things I did build. Ever patient, always kind. The man was an absolute gem, and while I hadn't met him, I will miss him greatly. Rest in peace, Mr. Crites. My deepest sympathies to the family.
  19. Unchecked anyway. But you know I always make an exception for you, jimbo.
  20. Thanks for your high quality problem solving post that just spent three or four sentences patronizing people and name calling instead of contributing to the conversation and paying attention to what anyone was actually saying. Really shows the overall quality that this community has become.
