  1. Wow! I'm going to save is both some time dude and put you on ignore, best of luck to you in life sir, madam or youngin! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  2. DTS-X and Auro mainly are not why I'm considering the Denon. The Denon is an 11.2 receiver. It's amps get nice reviews. If I were to purchase a receiver it would need to be an upgrade to my current. A self amplified 11.2 is a "upgrade" from my current 7.2. I didn't need a OLED tv, my 3D Sony works fine but I wanted an LG OLED and got one..I really don't care about Atmos or DTS-X, Auro, anything that has to bounce sound off the ceiling or shoot downward from it. (Please, no one ask why. Trust I know why and don't think anyone else needs to)My room limitations (low ceilings) won't let me take advantage of them. I currently use a 7.2 configuration using 2 front height speakers as well, not configured for Atmos. I enjoy 2 channel stereo reproductions as well as surround sound and 7 channel stereo. I want to be able to bi-amp my mains, be they RF3 ll's or RF7 ll's, lll's or whatever. What I don't want to add an external amp needing to get it all balanced together and taking up more space, adding an independent power source costing me more money I don't need to spend where an 11.2 receiver will do the trick costing me less over all. I've always had Pioneer Elite, Sony ES and Yamaha.. I've never used Onkyo, Denon, Maratz or Integra and many other. I'm familiar with YPAO and MCACC auto tune and never used Audyssey, I wouldn't mind giving it a try tho.. I haven't decided positive I'd get a receiver at this point but I'm open to it... Although I listen close to reference volume in movies, for music I'm more interested in clarity, depth and sound stage where bi-amping might be advantageous. No, I don't want to do component separate's, why? Because I don't! In case anyone would ask is all.. That's the long version to appease whom ever with "kid" in his name. Me, I'm not a kid, way far from it! I really just wanted opinions on speakers not in depth of "why" I want to do anything and thought i supplied more than enough info in my OP for others to give it, sorry if I didn't. (know I did tho) Thanks and hope I didn't offend anyone. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  3. Is why I asked you of you read my first post.. Did you, maybe go back and take a second look. It was clearly stated why... I want to!!! The Denon and Pioneer have in common that they are both rectangular, that's about it sir! Again, thanks for your input. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  4. I started to write a rather lengthy reply to your "why". I found the more I wrote the more I got pissed off at "why". Seriously? It was explained, did you even read the opening post. I got the upgrade itch. I don't need a reason "why". I'm not spending your money, I'm spending "my" money. I thanked everyone for contributing, contribute further or don't. "Why" other than what's been said is really no one business.. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for the input folks, as my room is set up now I have size restraints on the size of center speakers. I'm planning on redoing the H/T room this spring which will open things up some. Perhaps sell my 12in subs in favor of a single 15" if the right deal presents it's self. The 62 center sounds like a possibility. I need to find a place to audition some center's, honestly I don't think my RC3 ll sound's bad now tho. I've been looking pretty hard at the Denon AVR-X7200. Then maybe down the road find a RP450C or similar center and further still RF7 ll's or a pair of RP280F's. I'm frugal and look for good for "me" deals and not above buying something cheap and sell it high just to add to the H/T fund. Again, thanks for the help! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  6. My room size is 20x17. I am using RF3 ll's & RC3 ll's for LCR mains. Also 2 KSW12HG Subwoofers tuned to match the low end of the RF3 & RC3 Series ll's.. My receiver is a Pioneer Elite SC-91. I have the upgrade itch, truly, I get it to often but I have been putting this system together a long time improving where I can when I can. I use a Samsung UBD-K8500 Blu-ray player and a TiVo Bolt are my connected components. I have opportunity to upgrade my receiver OR my main speakers. I am thinking about RF7 ll's and have a chance to pick up RP 280F's. I have not had a chance to listen to the RP280F's. I've listened to RF7 ll's but not in my H/T room. I listen to both music with this system in both 2ch. direct & 7ch. stereo. I also use it for movies. If I keep the receiver I have what do you think would be the best speaker to match the RF3 & RC3 ll's or the RP280F's, or the RF7 ll's? My receiver choices are as follows; Denon AVR-X6300H YAMAHA RX-A2070 Marantz SR7011 Lastly possibly a Pioneer Elite SC-LX901. If I go with the speakers I won't have money to buy a different center speaker. The RC3 series ll will have to do and if I buy the receiver there is no money for speakers even if a great deal falls in my lap. Any input is greatly appreciated.

  7. I've gotten a few receivers from accessories 4 less in the past, both my current units are from there and am considering a third. Problem is I can't decide which one. Never had a problem and get top notch at half the price or less. Really glad you are loving yours. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  8. I also have low ceilings at 7ft. Side from using in ceiling speakers, which I can not do because of a lack of depth to the ceiling. I am using a 7.2 config with front height speakers and rear back speakers with my main LCF BI-amp'd and two 12" subwoofers set low with the volume just a little high for occasional chest thumping explosions. I can't do Atmos due to the room so I don't worry about it. What I got sounds good enough for my old ears.. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  9. That's so cool, I hope you have a blast. If you find yourself with an extra ticket I live in Boston and I'm from Baltimore. I can always meet you in D.C. [emoji16] Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk I know there no chance of that happening but just in case I wanted to call shotgun!!
  10. Get a decent sound meter, eBay is a good option for a nice one that Radio Shack use to sell...0 to 12 means nothing without knowing the many variables that only being in your room could tell but basically setting volume levels to reference levels or near will work nicely. Somewhere around 87 decibles on a good meter providing the amp in your receiver doesn't start clipping the speakers at that level or if it's to loud for the room and other family members. Reference levels in smaller rooms can be painful.First I'd let the MACC auto tuner have a crack at setting your speakers and fine tune from there.. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  11. Look on craigslist for speakers, no need to pay sticker price on cars or speakers!I had to drive an hour in to Maine to get them but I bought my RF 7's for $500 for the pair.Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  12. That Klipsch center is rated at 150 wats rms.Wattage is not what makes a speaker sound good, the quality of the speaker and CLEAN power is what makes a speaker sound good. The pioneer amp is ok, I would consider an upgrade to it if you want a better sounding system. If you like pioneer (I do) I would suggest something in the SC elite line ending with a 5 in the model... Again, you can find something near newbin pioneer elite receivers at great prices online or refurbished . Try accessories4less. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  13. Sounds like your mind is made up, get the 62 and enjoy. Get the matching front left and right when/if you can.In ending being visually impaired I would think the timber of a speaker you hear to stand out more than a person without visual impairment. My feeling is your new 62 center is going to sound amazing and your left and right that once maybe sounded good to you will no longer after adding the Klipsch RC 62 center. Perhaps causing you to not think the Klipsch sounds as good as it does. Like others suggest surrounds should be a very last expenses in your system. Matching LCR, maybe a decent subwoofer then surrounds last. There's enough used Klipsch equipment for sale you should be able to put together a really nice sounding system on the cheap. Best of luck!! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  14. I think that's a great deal, make sure to thank your buddy. He's doing you a solid. As for driving them there are too many options to recommend just one. A Marantz 6001 would do nicely, so would a Pioneer LXSC501 or Yamaha 2030. If budget is an issue check out accessories 4 less. They resell factory refurbished units for a fraction of what they cost new. I've been using then for quite some time. Best of luck! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  15. I think you may have to use a Klipsch WA2 wireless kit for each G12 you want to use for a surround channel depending on what your using for a source..If your using a set of Quintet's (5.1 with a sub) are you planning on replacing the Quintet surrounds with the G12's. I would think the matched Quintet's would sound better.. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  16. I saved for a year for my OLED. I also went thru my collection of electronics that are in perfect condition yet no longer used and are boxed up taking up space in my basement and sold them cheap. The money added up fast.I also looked at apps like letgo, FB Market Place and CL for people selling things like speakers WAY to cheap, bought them and resold them fast. In one instance I bought a set of A Cambridge Soundwork towers for $20, personally I thought they sounded like crap but I resold them the very next day on a different site for $150. Combine that with saved BB gift cards and in a years time I bought my 65in LG OLED B7P from Costco during their black Friday sale for $2400. ...as far as the "our terms" comment goes, I have a really nice set of Klipsch RF-7's and paid $500 for the set. So yeah, I'll take the "cheap" towers every day. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  17. I wouldn't buy a tv from China unless I wanted a Chinese tv. Personally I really like my Korean made OLED. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  18. Ah yes, the fever. Depending on your savings for such things the fever can get out of control. I like looking for pre-owned, versus new for speakers and cars and consider manufacturer refurbished over new for most electronics, especially where extended warranties can be had, it just saves time and money that way. If possible I like to try to time such fevers to major tech changes such as 1080 to 4K where in just about all components need to be upgraded. That gets pricey fast. Small things like Atmos don't faze me much. I'm a poor man's audiophile, I don't even know anyone who has dreams of 10k bottles of whine... Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  19. The only way that statement would hold water is if you were 12. We will just have to agree to disagree. High end speakers cost big bucks. I'm not letting someone else spend my money. If the speaker I'm listening to sounds like crap to me and golden to you, you buy them. I want what sounds like angels singing to my ears, not yours..There may be a huge possibility that what sounds great to you might also sound great to me but in the end it's my money, I can spend it just fine and I trust my ears, they are the only ones that count!

  20. Wrong, your ears are the only ones that matter!!! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  21. That woofer looks like an inverted death star, I'm in Boston. I wish I had room for them, it come get them... Find them a good home... Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  22. 11.2 channels vs 9.2 channels. I was thinking about the 11.2 7011 for bi-amping mains for 2 channel enjoyment. Just not sure it's going to be worth the price increase from what the 6011 is selling for. That's a great price! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  23. Their products are factory refurbished so you may be getting a unit in better shape than new out of box. I have bought two receivers from them in the past, both performed flawlessly and didn't have a scratch on them. My Pioneer Elite came with a 3 year warranty that I upgraded to a 5 year warranty. I plan on keeping it a while. I have been looking at the 7011 myself. BTW, that 6011 shows $729. as of this posting.. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  24. I still really like my RF 7ii's. Mostly used for surround sound H/T listening. Threy are eq'd down slightly and paired with 2, SW 12/300's. I think they sound quite nice and I got them dirt cheap. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  25. How does anything in a speaker forum become a political topic or even need a place for such discussions, got to Fox News or CNN forums, have it with people that can truly hang, don't be a "wuss" about it and hide in a speaker forum. Lounges are put in topic specific forums for people that can not or will not stay on topic, people like you and now me i guess but after this post it will no longer be me. If you wish to talk/type with me here it will be about Klipsch speakers when i have a question and or problem which as you can see from my post count is rarely which speaks to the quality of this speaker line. Peace!
