  1. Wow, that is gorgeous! If I could afford to, I'd buy it. I really get the impression that this amplifier is one of the best for powering heresys. I could only imagine what it sounds like playing vinyl. I wish I could .
  2. Hey mossy bottom, It's funny you should say that... I just spoke to guy who is selling his Scott 222, It's in absolutely BEAUTIFUL condition. And it's in total stock form. But he wants $900, and I can't afford that much right now, but this thing is in such amazing condition, I might ask him if he would take a deposit on it, and allow me some time to pay the Balance and then bring it home. I just know that if I hear it hooked to the heresys, I'd love it.

  4. Hi Islander, I totally agree. Any upgrades I do, will be one at a time, for all the reasons you said, plus my budget would only allow one upgrade at a time. But no, pointing that out is a good thing, because the great thing about this forum, is that other people could read these posts, and learn from it. I learned a lot just by reading some of the topics and posts from the knowledgeable folks who visit here. And a lot of my questions got answered by just searching for it in this forum, and reading what they've said about it.
  5. Anyone have some insight or a good recommendation for a tube amplifier to run a pair of Heresy II's? I've been reading a little about the Jolida FX-10, and it seems interesting for the price? Also, Dynaco 70 is a name that keeps popping up when heresy with tubes are mentioned. There's also amps like the Eastern Electric MiniMax, and the ONIX SP30, and Mini Watt Amplifiers. Then... My curiosity led me to read up on "chip amps", gainclones, and such... There's a TOPPING TP-60 that looks pretty cool, and the DALAUDIO gainclone amps too! Does anyone have any experience with any of these amps with heresys ? Or should I just look for a restored Marantz or Sansui Cap-Coupled integrated amp or receiver from the 70's era? ...anyone?
  6. I think the best thing to do, Is wait until I get them set up, With my amp, and place them in the corners of the room (as suggested). I'll let them settle in for a couple of days, And then sit down to do some actual listening. I love the way the heresy looks. So I'm going to do whatever I can (within reason, and budget permitting), to get the best that I can out of them. I've thought about it, and hacking up the beautiful cabinets of these H2's not something I want to do. Maybe the BEC mods? Or Maybe the klipsch upgrade kit to H3? (these do have the square terminal cup) So bringing them up to H3 level, is a matter of about $600. Maybe a combination of the two is what I'll end up with? But, all of that being said, There's a chance I might set them up and be okay with how they sound (for now). This setup will consist of a NAD 3210 integrated amp, a Technics SL-1200mk II turntable, & a Creek CD-60/DAC-60 compact disc spinner. Before I attempt any upgrades to the heresys, I was thinking that maybe a second amplifier might be a good thing to do first. I love this little NAD integrated, and I've had it for a long time with various speakers attached to them. But there are a lot of different flavors of amplification options out there, and I'm thinking it might be a good time to try tubes for the first time? So, as the twists and turns of this beloved hobby we love so much continue to unfold... My quest for cheap but good "starter" tube amplification begins....
  7. It's a thought. In theory, that seems like it should work?
  8. ( sorry ) I was mistaken about the port. Must've gotten two different mod types mixed up?
  9. http://m.ebay.com/itm/3-way-design-Vintage-K-55V-K-77-Vintage-M-K-8-ohm-woofers-Black-Walnut-/322118294110?nav=SEARCH There they are! Check out the pics!
  10. Well, altering the size of the cabinet was not something I was considering, Because I want to keep the "heresy look" I love the style of the squat cabinet, with the slanted risers. I've seen some heresy mods that just add an "extension" to the rear of the cabinet. Making it deeper by what appears to be only a few inches? and that same mod had M&K woofers installed, and a tapered port hole in the back, at the bottom of the newly added rear "extension" part. I must admit, the M&K woofer in the heresy cabinet looked really good.
  11. Yeah, that makes sense. The room that I'm putting the heresy II's in Is 10x13. So, I know that'll help some. But the reason I was asking, is because I am planning on Gradually doing some mods on these H2's, and it just seemed appropriate To look into making a little lower frequencies happen (along with the mids & tweets being upgraded). And also because the most popular issue people point out on any "stock" Heresy, is the lack of bass. I should have the H2's home Sometime this weekend.
  12. Are there "drop-in" woofer replacements that would achieve the desired effect? I'm planning on going all BEC on my heresys, Tweets, mids, crossovers... I know that crites offers a woofer, Does it allow the heresy to dig deeper? Or would cutting a port into the rear of the cabinet help? If so, is there a "proper" port hole size? ...Location of port?... Is porting a bad move?
  13. Hello Everyone. It seems that (most) people love the heresy. But I've noticed that (most) people also complain about the heresy not having enough low frequency output on their own, and usually recommend the use of a subwoofer. If adding a sub is not an option, and squeezing some deeper bass from a heresy was the goal... what are some options without altering the original heresy cabinet? Or, to put it another way... I want more bass from my heresy II without adding a sub, or changing original size of the cabinet. I think that the heresy is one of the most attractive looking speakers ever produced. It's not too big, It has a very "retro" look, and to me... It just symbolizes klipsch heritage and class. But I want it to have more bass! I know I can get Quartets, Fortes, Etc... But I want the classic heresy look. So, if you wanna keep your heresys looking "Stock", but need lower tones from it... Whatta ya do?
