  1. I concur with the others re repair/rebuilding the 650s. Nice heavy duty units specifically designed for movies. I can't see how replacing some parts would exceed your tentative budget. Edit: I just found an old thread that may be useful. RF 7s could be a good option for you as well if the repair proves difficult. https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/138370-kl650-thx-or-rf7-iis/
  2. You'll be fine with them in that room.
  3. I haven't heard a pair of the IVs in person. With all the covid restrictions I haven't been outside of the Northwest Territories since March 2020. I was flying out of Ottawa back home just as the initial wave and shut downs hit Canada. I have watched and listened to just about every video review I have been able to find. They seem pretty damn good, although at the present time time too large for my current space which the Forte IV might fit nicely. One of the only wide baffle speakers out there, which is quite unique in 2022. The only other that comes to mind are the DeVore Fidelity various "ape" series speakers which are supposed to be extremely good. We have some family business in Ontario to attend to this coming summer, I'll find a pair to demo whilst there.
  4. -40 the other night (Dec 28). No photo shop. I didn't finish the whole beer outside though.
  5. I have one more thought; have you considered rearranging the room? Placing the TV and speakers on the short wall to the right? My concern is that you will end up regretting getting rid of the Fortes down the road. Truth be told, they look very nice with your hardwood flooring. Far nicer than black speakers ever will.
  6. Very nice, they are immaculate looking. Congrats.
  7. Probably a good way to go. Will they sound like the Fortes? No they will not, but a pair on nice stands with a small sub will sound very good in a room this size. I used to run a pair of their predecessors (RB61 IIs as my mains) on nice metal stands. Visually they open up the room, and if you spend a little time noodling with the sub settings they will sound like floor standers.
  8. My BB Priv died on me last year, I got a Galaxy, the first non BB in my life. My wife's Priv died in the fall, she has also gone the Galaxy route. I still miss my physical keyboard.
  9. Nice to hear, a friend suggested it may be what I am after so I have been looking into them.The reviews sound very good. Not insanely expensive either. Was it a pretty seamless addition for you?
  10. Very good. I like this guy and his presentation style. Nice to see his wife has gradually become an integral part of the process. They work well together.
  11. The Pro-Ject turntables are quite nice, the Klipsch edition would be well worth having.
  12. I am seriously considering a Bluesound Node 2 this year.
  13. Starting off the new year a little nippy, -41 with a -52 wind chill. Good day to stay in and listen to tunes which is exactly what we are going to
  14. I have been using the Meze 99 Classics for a year now. They look like they just came out of the box. No plastic on them at all.
  15. Edmonton gets pretty cold. Funny enough up here we consider it "down south" and go there for shopping holidays.
  16. We are back into the deep freeze today, -38 with a -48 wind chill. I think I'll need to zip out and pick up some scotch today. https://www.weather.gc.ca/city/pages/nt-24_metric_e.html
  17. I like it, great photo.
  18. A foot or so should be fine for the passive radiator, you just don't want it to close. Too far and you minimize the benefit the design provides. I would recommend start about 10" out and adjust in one inch increments. When it locks you will hear it.
  19. A nice mild -24 with light snow. Feels good after the last couple weeks in the deep freeze. https://www.weather.gc.ca/city/pages/nt-24_metric_e.html
  20. I enjoy the British film, A Christmas Carol, with Alastair Sim. We watched it again last night.

    Merry Christmas

    I hope the day is very enjoyable and meaningful for all those who celebrate. All the best from the north.
  22. Always liked the Vince Guaraldi Trio album.
  23. Well I hope it all worked out and the last minute shopping was successful! Merry Christmas to all.
