  1. I obviously need to get out more.
  2. Wow. I had to google plasma tweeter, had not heard of them before.

    She Nailed It!

    I much prefer the song in Hebrew, I feel it better captures the Jewish essence and soul of Cohen’s writing. IMO this is the absolute best performance of the piece done by the IDF band. I would love to find a higher res version of this someday. These army kids can really play.

    Since I bought the Ohms (and a motorbike last year), any further major purchases could lead to death by wife. At least in the near to intermediate time period.
  5. The efficiency and distortion relationship are a rule, however at the time of design large watt solid state did not exist, only low powered tube amps.

    TV and music

    Thanks wvu80. I have mine set up the same way. I am beginning to think that using the HDMI connection makes picture with different sound sources impossible. I may have to either use a different sort of chain and connection cable or keep it as it is.

    RP-160M vs Heresy III vs Subwoofer

    Given your room and intended location of speakers, I would add a sub and keep the current RP 160s.

    TV and music

    A potentially stupid question: is there a way to have both the TV picture on whilst listening to music? I used to be able to do this years ago although I cannot recall how. These days everything runs through my Marantz 5008 AVR. My wife and I are football addicts and watch just about every world cup match. With some of the lesser matches it would be nice to do both. Same thing during hockey season with company over. I am assuming this has something to do with HDMI connections, or a function within the AVR I am unaware of. Any tips would be appreciated.

    Will Fortes sound better if...?

    I’m sure the upgrade would be just that, an upgrade and improvement. Myself, I have always been partial to Marantz products. They seem to work well with Klipsch speakers for some reason.

    Home Theater set up for TV...?

    Depends on the program, some shows are just produced better.

    I still kick myself in the butt for not buying your 17s at the time.

    Foam board speakers / exciters ???

    I don’t know, I listened to the video and it sounded pretty good. New tech and he was an engineer... once these are perfected they could spell the end of the electrostatic.

    Once the optimal panel is developed I see this taking off.
  14. Very nice condition.
