  1. If you are talking about just music, I would go with the Heresy III. I liked them much better for music. If it is a mix between movies and music, then it gets a little more difficult. The 280s are definitely brighter than the Heresy, and can add excitement to movies. If it helps, I owned the 280s for a month before I moved to RF-7II. I also sold the RF-7II and had the Heresy the longest. I now have Chorus II and am very pleased. The heritage/extended heritage line is truly special. I don't know what your budget is, but you may want to wait for the Forte III that is coming out, as that should be spectacular.
  2. I would definitely get the RC-64II over the 450C. Again, I owned both, and while the 450 is awesome, the 64 is much better. I still have the 64 to go with my Chorus II.
  3. I've owned both the 280 and the 7ii. The 7ii is better for both movies and music. MSRP on each, i wouldn't say the 7ii is worth the price difference. However, at the prices they can be had, the 7ii is worth the cost.
  4. Nice price! I'd love to try those. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. @AaronB123 has dual orbit shifters too and it sounds like that is incredibly intense. My R-115SW has no problem filling my ~2200 c.f. room, or my entire downstairs even. There was a point in one movie that it had opened a drawer on the opposite end of the house. I don't need more output over the R-115, but I would like a bit more clarity. Although the Klipsch is fantastic for movies, I find myself wanting more for music. My HSU ULS-15 MKII is much better in this regard, but won't handle movies as well. Since it's a dual purpose room, I wanted to see if I could find something that could handle clarity for music and power for movies. The JTR Captivator 118HT looks to fit the bill. The woofer is extremely light and is 100db sensitive. I think that will match quite nicely with the Chorus II. It also has about 9-10db more output across the board against the Klipsch, so I'm not concerned about losing any power. Built in USA and in walnut are both big selling points for me too.
  9. I bought a pair for my father. I don't find them harsh at all and they actually seem almost mellow. That's not to say they aren't exciting, but they can be turned up without any harshness that I found.
  10. They were originally oak clear if he's been oiling them, they've probably gotten darker over time. Personally, I really don't like oiled oak, so that would spoil it for me.
  11. Here in CT there are Chorus II that sell for $1,100 and above. I, too, think $568 average is quite low. You almost never see that over here.
  12. yes
  13. Sure have! I have also heard of needing to find a new home if I attempt such things. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Ideally, I'd love to have 2. Unfortunately, my room doesn't allow for 2 right now. I've actually found that pointing the subwoofer to the side really helps the bass throughout the room. Before there were large peaks/nulls, and now pretty much every seat in the room has the same level.
