  1. Yeah, he's had these up for at least a month. I'm surprised they are still sitting
  2. I’ve got a buddy that lives local to you that might be interested in the single, but more than likely all three. He is logged on and trying to send you a PM…never mind he just got in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Klipsch MTM

    Same seller has a lot of four Klipsch Industrial 1" x 6" badges. Klipsch Speaker Metal Badge Lot of 4 Used | eBay
  4. I'd never even heard of that auction site, and I watched the Belles and Quartets until they priced me out of it. I'm already pressed for floorspace in my house and really cannot accommodate Belles, La Scalas or KHorns. I'm pretty cheap too, and based on previous deals I don't have it in me to drop over $2k for speakers.

    Home generators

    Back in the early 2000's the east coast was out of electricity for five days or something crazy. My sump pump never overflowed as luckily the week the power was out was pretty dry. This past week we had seven straight hours of storms and when I went down to look at everything in my finished basement around 12:30am all was dry. Went back down at 2:10 and there was already an inch and a half of water across the entire basement. I tried bailing it but the water was coming in faster than I could get it out. Luckily a friend rushed out at 3am with his portable genny and we started the sump pump around 5am. Even with that reaction and being right here with it caused a lot of water damage. Luckily the majority of my basement is tiled, but the baseboards and Pergo in the outer rooms were saturated. We put big industrial carpet fans down there immediately after we got the water sopped up and after a week I was still finding water. I really like the thought of going whole house, because in any event, if I am home or away that piece of mind with instant on and off with natural gas wired into my entire home 200A panel would take a load off. I'm still waiting on a dehumidifier because the dampness even after a week of fans is crazy, unfortunately every store was sold out of generators and dehumidifiers before the power even came back on. I think this post is pushing me in the direction of the whole house model though. Even being away for an afternoon with a sump pump out now would scare the hell out of me. Now, trying to find a local contractor that can do the work in a timely manner. Tim

    Home generators

    I'm at the same crossroad. I just dealt with a flooded basement last week in Michigan after a 24 hour outage. Was considering a whole house Generac or Kohler since I am on natural gas with city water and sewer...but I've heard they are extremely pricey to have installed. I narrowed it down to a WEN 11000/8300, a Firman 10000/8000, and a Champion 11500/9200 portable generator if I do in fact go this route. I would love the capabilities of the whole house genny with automatic transfer switch if I can afford to do it...another problem is I have been debating selling my house and don't care to drop $10k plus to move on. I don't travel much so running extension cords, etc isn't a big deal if I am home. That stray thought of being in Florida or something and having a crisis up here scares the crap out of me. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thank you guys Tim
  7. Congrats DizRotus on picking these up!
  8. There are at least one other pair of Cornwalls, I believe they are listed at $1500. Also Chorus I and Chorus II available in Michigan right now. Plus at least three pairs of KLF 20's and 30's. Unemployment extras must be drawing to a close.

    Very tempting, ever come Detroit way? Not sure when I could make it out towards Fort Wayne, I have so much going on right now. Tim
  10. I almost grabbed a pair of these a couple of years back, can't get past the rat fur coating...but they are one hell of a speaker!
  11. Let me know if you decide to ship, I may be interested in the KSP-S6.
  12. Thank you for the heads up, I'll keep an eye on these! I see there are also a pair of Quartets nearby....never been on this site. Tim
  13. I have no true corners in my house regardless so I can't really go KHorns. Maybe my next house will offer some better placement options...these might still be available....lol
  14. He's had those up for a long time. Price is right but to me that veneer is butt ugly
  15. Up to $419 now on the sale price. Everything going up…again Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Both brands make great, and not so great products. I have owned JBL SVA series and several Pro Cinema speakers, and they sound fantastic. You can’t judge a product by the name brand alone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. I have a pro Marantz PMD-526C that I have sitting in the box. I used it for two weeks while my Emotiva CD player was repaired under warranty for a table motor. It's a very nice player and it sounded really good. Comes with remote and all accessories...like I said it is pretty much brand new. I could do $225 shipped to you unless you are in BFE. Tim
  18. Some specs for you on this SVA line Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. I own both and have them running as fronts, and dual centers. Currently I have the JBL 8330 for heights and rear surrounds, but four KPT-200’s are waiting to be hung. It sounds amazing set up together Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. I’d grab them if they were local to me. I much prefer the wood finish cabinets to the black. I think both the 201 and 250 sound fantastic Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. These are not cheaply made at all. They are very well built heavy speakers.
  22. I owned JBL SVA 2100 speakers, and they sounded very similar to the CF-4. A bit more relaxed, and less shouty or in your face. I absolutely loved mine, but they....just like the CF series, need a seated listening position to sound their best. Mine were in my work room so I was standing most of the time, which led me to sell them off after I picked up my second pair of KLF-30's. I regret parting with them though, and still have the matching SVA Center. Tim
  23. I literally bought four JBL 8330A cinema speakers from a man in Florida off of Ebay ten years or so back. Nicest guy, we exchanged emails leading up to my purchase and he made me feel extremely comfortable that he would pack and ship the speakers carefully and that he had taken great care of them. About four days after my purchase and payment, I reached out to him just to make sure he didn't run into any problems with palletizing and shipping since I had not heard back. Two days later I received word from his wife that he had passed suddenly from an aneurysm. His son was following up and would make sure the speakers were delivered safely and promptly. Absolutely broke my heart....so yes, this could happen.
  24. It’s all going to boil down to what is available in your area, that will dictate price. You aren’t going to touch the KLF 30 for anything in that price range when going new, Chorus II, CF-3 and 4, and Cornwall are the only full range Klipsch that will compete with them without adding subs. The prices of everything on the used market has followed suit with the latest retail escalation of the brand. To me, everything Klipsch currently sells…as far as the Heritage line is vastly overpriced. To find KLF 30 in excellent condition, you are going to be hard pressed to find a deal right now. $1000 seems to be low end on the asking prices Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. I met my girlfriend on Match. Very easy and comfortable environment to familiarize yourself with your matches. I would suggest anyone looking to give it a shot. If you sign in as a guest, you will usually get offers for up to 50% off in a day or two. For $20 a month, it is well worth it
