    Tell me that whe you have something rare with prevance that could be worth some money and you go to sell it. I'd say it usually does warrant a higher value but I do agree $30k is deep sea fishing territory.


    I have.

    Many times.

    Provenance and rarity does not equate value.  This is literally Museum Studies 101 stuff.

  2. Speakers will work with anything given that there's an amplifier.  Will it sound good? Maybe.  Will it match?  Absolutely not.  The 5000F's will run right over the rest of your speakers, especially the R-52C.  Start your upgrade with your center channel, then look ay other objects.

    Yes, someone got a smokin’ deal, I just didn’t have the setup for them. All my equipment is old (my Harmon kardon receiver doesn’t have hdmi). I’m gonna miss them

    I hope that wasn't the only reason for parting with them.

    Yes, ill keep that in mind, but to be honest, it would be nice to just have a receiver with hdmi capabilities. I've only been using my system for music because thats how I came in to this hifi-world, but ive recently started to branch out to the home theater scene... Guess I have some re-evaluation to do

    If you're on a tight budget, look at used or refurbished.  Accessories4Less is a good option.  Just make sure you don't hold up on power ratings.  Most of them are grossly inflated.  Outline your features you want and then if you're having trouble, just holler at us.

    I'll admit, my receiver is as old as I am (21), so maybe time to up my receiver game 

    AVR's utilized multi-channel audio as far back as the 1990s.  I know my RX-V530 from 2002 (my first non HTIB AVR, I was 12) did have 5 channel stereo.  AVR's prior to that had a Dolby LCR mode that was marketed as 3-Stereo, but most Yamaha's back to the 390 in 1999 also had multi-channel stereo.  You won't need to break bank to do what you're wanting to do at all and any AVR that you get that's worth a damn has the feature built in.


    Be advised though, you will have a power drop in using multi-channel stereo, it won't pack the punch that stereo mode itself has.

  6. They're on the breadbox board - the originals were to be mated to the terminal cup. I don't see why you couldn't screw them into the cabinet, they have about 4 inches of wire that runs from the XO to the terminal, so you should be able to place them near the terminal.

  7. Hey guys.  I am now left with the old crossovers from the pair of Chorus II that I restored for a buddy.  They're in good shape, though one of the leads could use a resoldering.


    I'm asking $75 shipped and PayPal'd for them.  They're already boxed up and ready to go.  See pic two for the frayed wire.2.thumb.jpg.e3e975465e2555f39147d6c78694f820.jpgs-l1600.thumb.jpg.eba64c0a08c9c7339f44c9695daf48f2.jpg

  8. Hmm I don't see here the jumpers would be, nothing marked HF or LF on the back.

    I did notice Ohm setting was adjustable on back, its set to 8 which is what the RB-5's should be at.


    The jumpers would be where the terminal is. It'd be tied red-to-red, black-to-black.  Are you referring to a setting on your amp?  Klipsch don't have adjustable impedance.

    Professor History Kid.  It has a nice ring to it.  :emotion-21:

    "Assistant Command Historian History Kid" is a bit of a mouthful, yeah.

  10. I would offer $200 and settle at $250.  The 35's aren't common, but generally can be had in decent shape between 300-500.  The condition and need has me pitching the ball lower on this one. $300 is fair - it's just not really a "great" deal - nothing I'd jump on in a hurry.

    But for a couple months, we will just call you freezing in Iowa

    The room with my HOO's was 21 F this morning.  It's up to 50 F right now, but this cold is something else.  It doesn't help that there's a whole second half of the house that isn't original and they never ran central heat to it.


    Meanwhile the rest of the house is toasty at 70.


    Heading down to -30 tonight with -60 wind chills.

    You move that fancy new washer and dryer out of the house and you'll have room! 


    At least that's what I would have done when I was your age.  :rolleyes:



    Hey, how much longer until we need to start calling you Dr. History Kid?


    You get to call me Professor in 8 months.  You get to call me Dr. in 2 more years. ;)

    You were probably halfway to a pair of Cornwall III's before you figured out your clothes needing washing.  :ohmy:
    Welcome to adulthood!    :emotion-21:  :emotion-19:
    Not new anyway. No place for them. Lol

    Besides, at this point it's just preparing for when the house is mine.

  14. My Denon 4200 is running 4 RS-3's - that's about it.  That being said, it's probably kicking out somewhere between 75-95 WPC.  It's more than enough for the rear.  That being said, unless you get an amp that can match at 90 WPC or better, with that setup - I probably wouldn't worry about it too much.  Are you mainly going for a compacted HT setup?

  15. OP, in the future - do not utilize A4L's support.


    These are units refurbished by the manufacturer and carry manufacturer warranties and support.  You should (in the future, if there is another purchase) contact Yamaha.  They will handle the issue.  I am speaking from experience.  A4L is a third party, and once the transaction is complete, you should take up issues with the manufacturer.
