    I learned this in Mighty Ducks 2! Funny enough, according to IMDB, the Greenland scenes were filmed in Iceland!
  2. I seem to remember when new owners were getting forte III, several of them notice better performance after a month or two. I want to say @dtel noticed this in his system, but I could be wrong.

    I second this! It gave my new SVS SB-16 Ultra a big time workout. Thank you @CECAA850 for recommending this movie! I ordered it shortly after I read this post. It's a very intense movie, but really good. Different take on a natural disaster movie.
  5. Yes, the klf-c7 using the same tweeter driver as the klf-30 speakers. If you upgrade the 30s, I highly suggest upgrading the c7 as well to keep the timbre similar
  6. So I got the DCD-1600NE SACD player. I like the sound, but I don't necessarily understand the different DAC chips between equipment. So my Denon DCD-1600NE has PCM1795 (192kHz/32bit). My Parasound P6 192 kHz / 24-bit PCM over COAX or SPDIF. My Bluesound Node 2 has 32-Bit, 192kHz. My question is should I just use the onboard DAC on the Denon SACD player, or should I use digital out to either my preamp or my Bluesound DAC? I was told that the DAC on the preamp was better than what is in the Bluesound DAC, but I am starting to doubt that. I think the preamp has a better DAC for USB only, but not COAX or SPDIF. Thanks
  7. Contact this guy through eBay. The picture you listed is his picture. It will probably take him a week or two to make another set if he doesn't already have a set ready. He's in Russia. His work is pretty good and he is good to work with. My father had a chorus II logo designed and this guy made it.
  8. The Crites titanium tweeter diaphragms are a great and cheap upgrade to do. It doesn't change the sound a ton, just makes the treble a little cleaner. I recommend doing one speaker and comparing the modified speaker to the stock speaker, just so you can really hear the difference.

    What I Got Today!

    I got my Denon SACD player yesterday and hooked it up today. I had to rearrange my stereo cabinet, I may end up doing more tweaks in the cabinet. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  10. The klf30s definitely sound better on a dedicated 2 channel setup, but didn't doubt terrible in a surround sound setup. When I had my RF7s sounded just ok on my vintage Sony integrated amp, but when we hooked up a Carver 200 wpc amp using the Sony integrated amp as a preamp, those speakers came alive.

  11. Kinda pricey, in my opinion, but maybe not for a clean pair of industrial scalas.

  13. I honestly don't know. I was just backing up others that a bad source could downgrade vintage klipschorns. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  14. I've experienced this before due to source. I have belles and klipschorns and they need good 2 channel equipment to drive them. We thought something was wrong with my belles for a long time, then we realized it was because it was hooked up to a surround sound receiver. Once we hooked them up to a vintage Sony stereo integrated amp, they came alive. Meanwhile, newer speakers like my klf30s sounded great on the surround sound receiver. I did this same experiment by hooking up the klipschorns to my surround sound receiver, and the life was removed from them. Those vintage speakers need real 2 channel equipment. My belles are from 1979 and my klipschorns are from 1977.
