  1. 99.9 percent of the internet is this to one extent or another…
  2. With all the differing opinions and even “facts” relating to BS is it possible that audio is all in the eye (ear) of the beholder (listener)?
  3. I will say having had a jubenstein that A LOT of modern SS and Tube amps will introduce hiss/noise on high sensitivity speakers like the Cornwall. I am currently using the Topping PA5 for my uppers and it’s been the only amp that is silent. I’ve tried tube amps and other higher priced SS amps and all of them introduced noise and or hiss. The topping for whatever reason is totally silent and clean. May want to give it a spin since it’s so affordable and see how it sounds for the Cornwall? You could always bi amp and high powered amp for the lowers..
  4. I am running C2600 tube pre with ss amp. I would recommend whatever tube pre you want with a decent ss power amp for best results with the forte.
  5. To the OP I know you posted about trying to figure out why the bass is poor on your La Scalas but imho there was a reason I moved from la scalas to belles and wasn’t happy till I settled on K402 with direct radiating lowers. The large horn with a direct radiating woofer (heresy, Cornwall, cornscala, ect) has way more bass. I think it boils down to the type of sound you like. And it sounds like (pun intended) that you may want to try out a Cornwall. I think you may find it has more of the sound character you are looking for.
  6. I’ll chime in as a former P-17b owner. They don’t sound like Klipsch, they sound like Klipsch trying to compete with B&W high end speakers. No soul no excitement. Smooth and bland. Non offensive but they don’t put on a show. Different strokes for different folks but I’d take the Heresy’s everyday and twice on tuesdays.
  7. Infinite baffle ceiling mounted “vents” directly into attic. You can brace it better. I’m thinking the drywall won’t hold up to the vibrations as well with wall mounted.
  8. Same experience here. Lowered treble by 1 on my McIntosh C2600 and the highs sound perfect now. I’m so impressed with this amp.
  9. I use HEOS it’s not incredible but it works. I am able to grab my songs from my symbology nas and stream from all my services. It’s definitely much easier to use for streaming services versus NAS playback
  10. So what are you saying exactly?
  11. If you had put in all of your investable money the day before each of the major stock market crashes in the past forty years And left your money in the entire time he would be a millionaire now. Tell me what warren Buffett is doing and I’ll tell you what you should be doing with your money. The ultra wealthy do things that have no bearing on our financials. Get/be debt free, have a safety net savings account, and invest the rest in long term solid investments. Will the crash hurt, only if I look at my investments the day of the crash. It’s ok chicken little, the sky is not falling unless you weren’t planning ahead…
  12. The DAC in my Marantz SR series receiver sounds awesome with my Klipsch forte iii.
  13. I guess Klipsch isn’t making the commercial jubilees available to the public anymore?? If you spend some time lurking on Craigslist and eBay you can put yourself together one. And with an active crossover it takes the speaker to a whole nother level. All the things everyone talks about with standard heritage speakers is mainly due to lack of ability to change the crossover for your needs. Once you throw an active xo in the mix the results put all these other discussions to rest
  14. Having been someone who worked his way through LaScalla, Belles, Fortes, and klipschorns I will say this. Save all your money and get a 2-way jubilee. I have mine in a 11x12 listening room and hands down by a magnitude better sound, presence, bass, everything.
  15. I use the crown xls on my dual jbl 18” lowers on my jubinstein. Silent, power for days, and never breaks a sweat. I’ve been through so much gear in the last 10 years getting to this point. I’d say save the headache and just go with a crown xls that has enough watts and call it a day.
  16. I am running one of these on my dual 18” jbl lowers. Super clean and they pound. Great amp at great price! Glwys
  17. With the OBO right next to the price I had to do a double take, looked like $45,000 lol
  18. Got it last night. Still need to level match with the active crossover but the nicest thing so far, absolute silence on my horns. Put my head all the way in the horn with the amp on full blast and not the slightest noise! So nice. Gonna work on it tonight
  19. Mine left china, went to Alaska, then back to china, now no update from fedex.
  20. I am waiting for mine to arrive from china for my k402s. Very excited
  21. I used the minidsp. It was great except the very high noise floor that is obnoxious on high sensitivity speakers…
  22. And take my advice and skip the mini-dsp and just use a xillica
  23. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://ramaudio.com/pdf/DSP_PowerPack_ASYM_UserManual.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwi88cbMt5f1AhVnAZ0JHfkQCP4QFnoECCsQAQ&usg=AOvVaw0KX_fcQk_C4P3kFcHwtIv4 Was looking at these for a two way. Might be of interest
  24. I will throw in my opinion on the receiver, go Marantz. I currently use the SR7012 and it works great with my Forte III. I do 5.2.4 and it works great for atmos ect too. Its the second Marantz receiver Ive owned and never had an issue.
  25. My very simple 2 cents for a big improvement. Get a tubed preamp and a nice powerful ss amp. Problem solved.
