  1. Should I get Tubes or SS?

    Start small. Buy a restored Sony str 7055. Full well rounded, laid back with a tube sound with fat bottom. No need to adjust bass. Then buy a Marantz. "Better" sound, clean, neutral, cool with a firmer tighter bass. Then buy McIntosh.... People never seem to go back to any suggestions once they buy a Mac. Lol. I wish I could advise you on the sound of a Mac but I REALLY don't want to leave what I have. I like them! Good luck.
  2. Belle Klipsch..new to me

    Darn good looking speakers! Congrats. I have a pair myself hooked to a Marantz streaming Google play via the aux in the back. These speakers do so many things well be it loud or near field low, shhhh everyone is in bed late at night listening. I literally can sit for couple hour sessions just enjoying the music. Occasionally I'll come across a song or two that exhibits "beaming" or "honk" via the Bell's but it's the material. Crap music will be revealed quickly with horn speakers. Just their nature. I'm keeping these and wish you many years of enjoyment. Congrats!
  3. Found a home with perfect corners!

    Rat shack... um, no, I think we have a nice home. The usual 5/3 2800 sq ft with loft built in 2008.? Identical to this pic. But it's too big for us 3. Need to downsize. I know the above isn't the best looking single story home from the outside but the layout just flows. Also love the property and it's potential for a great landscape & pool. Meh, wife didn't like it so time to move on.
  4. https://m.trulia.com/property/3126911782-3220-Salida-Way-Cameron-Park-CA-95682 Love the logical layout of this home! Especially the windows. A formal dining room that would actually be put to use. The living room with it's fireplace dead center I can put a pair of Klipschorns on either side. Kerping my Bell's! Most homes don't provide this many corner speaker placement. I've always been a fan of the old 70's homes with atriums inside or the front from architects such as Frank Lloyd wright, Joseph Eichler and Cliff May to name a few. Although neither were exact copies all three used similar styles. I'll admit this isn't really that close to those greats of past but it touches on it is affordable and we're looking to downsize from our Mcmansion. I see this house as space not wasted and love the layout. If we decide to get it it'll have an absolute fabulous backyard makeover from a landscape designer with a very nice pool something along the lines of 50' length. A nice lap pool. Something I've always wanted. So still looking but this one I was smitten with. In a perfect world I'd like to take these plans and build on my own property. Unfortunately, land here is expensive and before even sticking a shovel in the ground the permits run $90k. Then some I'm sure. I wish I knew the plans this home and what they called it. Cheers.

  6. RF7 II upgrade?

    I'm in love! Oh man it's go BIG or go home time. I have 6' between my Bell's. I want it! Oh yeah, JOOP looks awesome!
  7. Absolutely. With variety you gain experience. I've heard Focals & Martin Logans and both had me scratching my head as they were to analytical when it came to speech. Words pronounced perfectly which had me asking myself "who talks like that?" Much like today's razor sharp tv. Nothing in nature looks that bladed. But some speakers have gotten to a point of such quickness it's become clinical. But who am I kidding even when I give praises of my Wharfedales Denton's upon listening to music. The artist & instruments aren't supposed to sound "rich, laid back, warm". Live music is hardly ever warm & rich or laid back. Some music, sure. But not a majority of them. With Klipsch, they allowed the artist to simply breath whenever they would sing. Uncolored. Same with musical instruments. Be it in an orchestra or live venue I hear reverberation. A mixing of instruments with the surrounding elements. Good or bad this is what Klipsch gives you effortlessly. I'll stay with my Klipsch Belle's for the foreseeable future . I'll tweak them here & there and will have to as components wear but they will always be Klipsch in my heart.
  8. Talked to an excon once.... What did you serve time for? "Growing" Hmm, where you from? "Humboldt county" Had a big operation? "No, but the Sheriff's son did"... I laughed.

  11. Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    Celebrating our tenth anniversary. Booked ourselves in at the Embassy and had no idea the room we were going to get. Daughter was SO happy with having a balcony. Me too! USS Midway. God bless USA! WOOHOO.
  12. new 2 channel setup

    Dumb question. Being as I'm a newbie what exactly is bias adjustment? I've read some are automatic? Is this something you have to do with every tube amp? Does bias come "loose" after repeated on/off?
  13. Favorite SS Reciever for 2 channel listening

    Not alone. I have a Denon 3803 paired to Wharfedales Denton's that sounds pretty dang good. A tad mellow/laid back but detailed. Listened to it for a good hour and while the first half hour was a bit tight and not as holographic once up to operating temperature it displayed excellent musicality, bloom, and holographic sound. Imaging wasn't pin point accurate with just a tad bit of float. Otherwise a really good receiver. I can live with it. Denon makes good products. Downstairs in the living room right now the Bob Carver Sunfire cinema grand amp & pre sounds absolutely fantastic on the Bell's. Musical as all get out and non fatiguing. Been sitting here for about an hour after a LONG hard day of yard work. Don't want to move. Lol. Jazz sounds so awesome on Klipsch.
  14. The Three - Will Not Power On!

    Next time get the hand crank one or upgrade to the wind up one. Guaranteed not to break. Of course your arm might get tired... I too was worried about the bugs on first gen stuff so I'll wait.
  15. Klipsch Belle's & McIntosh
