  1. Thanks Roy! I got really nervous when I saw the Chief quoted my post.
  2. So I recently did A+B comparisons between Crites built Types AA crossovers and stock Type AA crossovers with JEM caps on Belles. The Crites crossover with the sonicaps were significantly brighter compared to the JEM. We then compared stock Type AA crossovers with Dayton Audio capacitors against stock Type AA crossovers with JEM caps on La Scalas. The Daytons were a little duller compared to the JEMs. I'm not trying to influence any brand over another, just saying my experiences. There's nothing wrong with going cheap with the Daytons. In the end, you probably won't be comparing them to other caps like I did.
  3. Klipsch RP-450ca https://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/ele/d/walpole-klipsch-rp-450ca/7436904381.html Not affiliated, but looks like a good deal.
  4. I've heard very good things about REL subwoofers for music listening

  6. I would need $105 USD plus shipping cost. I am not making money on this, this is how much I have into the passive radiator. I thought it would be a good idea for me to have a spare.
  7. I think those are original cabinets. They are probably HBR which were heresy raw birch. This have the consumer the opportunity to finish the speaker however they wanted to match the room.
  8. I have a single forte II passive radiator which was reconed by Midwest Speakers in Minnesota if you are interested.
  9. Congrats on the score. I would love to see pictures, really curious on how they look. The advice above is pretty accurate. You may need a recap, but wait until you know it's not the receiver.
  10. I believe the rp450c is a little older than your rp6000f speakers, so technically the voicing might be a little different, but I honestly think you'll be fine and enjoy the setup.
  11. It sounds like your receiver needs to have the potentiometers deoxed (volume, balance, bass, treble, and midrange knobs). What other information are you looking for?
  12. Looks like you have a pair of heresy II speakers from 1985 in an oak lacquer finish.
  13. I agree with this. I think a lot of people disregard him because of his beliefs in cables mattering
  14. It's tough to set a price. La Scalas if that era are worth typically $1500-3000 depending on condition. The rosewood veneer is a nice touch of custom. If it was done well, it can definitely add value. Rosewood is definitely a nice and classy way to go. But someone could argue that not original can take away from the value like a aftermarket customizations on a car or motorcycle. Are these from the father/son team that customize Klipsch speakers? Their prices tend to be a couple of grand over stock value prices normally.
  15. Just curious if anyone hear has much experience with some PS Audio gear with Klipsch speakers. I was told from a dealer that the PS Audio preamp and amp combos are very detailed with comes across as overly bright with Klipsch speakers. Their BHK product lines look very nice and their Stellar phono preamp has very good reviews, especially over Parasound which is a brand I like a lot. The biggest products I find intriguing is their Power Regenerators. I watch a lot of the videos on PS Audio's YouTube channel and I have learned a lot of information about audio gear. Obviously they are going to push their own products in that type of marketing. Anyone hear using any Power Regenerators? Is it worth it for mid-level systems, or only really benefitial for extremly higher end systems? I am currently running a Parasound P6 preamp with a Parasound A23 amp. I am just using the built-in phono preamp on the Parasound P6 for now, I have never tried an external phono preamp. Thanks for any help.
