    Ok, so it took a week. Or was it 10 days? Forgot the lag time.
  2. In 1996 for the KLF-30. The market trend was pushing hard for speakers with a smaller footprint. Tall narrow deep speakers were in vogue. Electronics were coming standard with subwoofer outputs. Multi channel at home was a finally a real thing. Big old box speakers seemed very old fashioned. Kind of like how old muscle cars were getting dumped at the same time. LOL.
  3. I don't know WTF I am doing. LOL. At the time, I said this would be my forever AVR. Pretty much added so much electronics in the past year or two that everything I have now has been turned over once or twice. I think the only thing that is still the same is the Panasonic plasma. Even cables have changed. I keep telling my wife I am done. LOL. She says you keep saying that. You have to understand, I have historically sold very little, and made small changes once or twice a year. I has been a crazy time for sure. I have recently driven many 1000's of miles and have spent many $$$$ of dollars chasing down audio gear. I think this is why some call it an addiction. Maybe it is. Do I need an intervention if I am happy and enjoying what I am doing? At this moment, I think I am just recovering some space and some $$$.
  4. One more very useful tool that I have used in the past when I needed line of sight for a roof mounted 700Mhz parabolic grid antenna to pick up LTE Cellular for home internet service. Whew, glad those days are over. 😨 http://www.antennasearch.com/
  5.

Everything is perfect. No dings or scratches. Purchased from Best Buy 2 years ago. MSRP $2199 SOLD
  6. Sounds about right. That is where Klipsch is at with their current pricing on some other products. I bet that was not 7.2.4 either, just front wall
  7. SOLD All original packaging and paperwork included. Even the white gloves! and black bag it comes inside of when you open the box for the first time! It is mint condition, so check the links for the best photos https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=24456 https://downloads.monoprice.com/files/manuals/24456_Manual_190121.pdf Review https://www.audioholics.com/subwoofer-reviews/monolith-10201d-12

    Still there. It is a little far of a drive for many.
  9. Here you go. Not affiliated. Posted these here because you do not want my mint Walnut pair in the other section. https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/ele/d/long-lake-klipsch-forte-ii-speakers/6977529708.html
  10. If you already own any of these, better to keep what you have. Money better spent on upgrading the front left, right and center channel speakers. If not....of these 2 speakers, RP-600M are better....unless you need wide dispersion. If you need that or not will depend on your room, seating, and speaker placement. Most cases use wide dispersion for side surround, not surround back. Also consider that wide dispersion in an otherwise acoustically untreated room may have significant disadvantages. Again, your specific situation is unknown, and therefore may vary (greatly).
  11. Location: Fall River, Wisconsin 53932 Price: SOLD Research and add your own shipping costs. CONUS only MSRP $3600 W/ CPI inflation factored in would be $5,471.62 today. This Class AB amplifier is designed with a very high bias offset. That provides appoximetly 20% of rated power (900W) to run in Class A before it switches to Class B. So you are getting about 30W/channel and 60W/channel bridged Class A power. Don't believe me? Look at the specs. The idle power is 225W. That is how Class A is designed. That is why some have described Classé as having a "Tube like sound". I think this is perfect for someone who appreciates the quality that Krell, Mark Levinson, Bryston can bring, and who are also not about to pay those prices. Classe brings alot of performance at a more reasonable price point. Classe has been favorably compared to Theta. May slot in just ahead of Aragon. Ahead of Parasound too. Definitely ahead of Emotiva, Outlaw, Monolith, Integra, Denon, Marantz http://www.bwgroupsupport.com/downloads/manuals/classe/CAV-150-OM.pdf http://bwgroupsupport.com/downloads/specsheets/classe/CAV-150 Brochure.pdf http://www.audioreview.com/product/amplification/amplifiers/classe/cav-150.html CAV-150 SPECIFICATIONS: Frequency Response: 20 Hz to 20 KHz +/- 0.1 dB Sensitivity: 1.2 Volt in for rated output Input Impedance: 75 Kohms (single ended) 16 Kohms (balanced) Output Impedance: 0.05 Ohm Gain: 29 dB S/N Ratio: More than 135 dB THD+N: 0.004% Maximum power and Channel configuration With 8 Ohms load Six (6) Channels 150 Watts x 6 Five (5) Channels 300 Watts x 1 (bridged) 150 Watts x 4 Four (4) Channels 300 Watts x 2 (bridged) 150 Watts x 2 Three (3) Channels 300 Watts x 3 (bridged) Power Consumption (idle): 225 Watts Power input: 110V 60Hz Dimensions: Dimensions: 6 3/4" H x 19" W x 21 1/2" D Net: 70 lbs.
  12. If you need a pair of Forte II, I have a pair for sale also in another thread here.
  13. I wish I could find some. I have a source for the granite I cut myself, but not the polishing stones. What can you tell me?
  14. The other pair of L20T3's are chained to the ceiling. I would've hung that pair you spied too, but I need a new driver. I felt the need to and did collect the entire series. L20T3 L40T3 L80T3 L100T3 L200T3 Been there done that now I am over it. I have 4 250Ti's now. You can see the L40T3's to the left. Super rare in oak. 1989 only.
  15. I agree with this statement so much it is worth repeating a third time. This is why I am a proponent for developing a Chorus III. Now I would like to hear thoughts on baffle diffraction and edge diffraction in a large box. My 30 year old JBL 250Ti solve those cabinet diffraction issues, are internaly braced and filled, and look good all at the same time. The only thing getting in the way of utilizing these well known solutions to well know issues, that I can come up with, is cost and profit margin.
  16. Thank you. I really appreciate that. It will be a while longer before I am done done. I have a small workspace, so I did not have enough room for all of the pieces to be finished all at once. Some of the trim on the rear, and decorative side pieces will be added on later. I have to go through the exact same finish process all over again. I think there are something like 11 or 12 coats of various products with curing and sanding in between each. Don't worry the rack will up and running first. I love what you did there. Tubing is great, feet are a nice touch, the dimensions are definitely custom. I know that maple butcherblock is not cheap either. I went through a lengthy process trying to match oak to walnut with the "Flexy" racks I built for my other system. I also needed something custom for integration across the front wall. Here is a pic to my other systems diy racks.
  17. I may be interested. Send me a PM when you get around to selling those.
