  1. In the $ 1000 (799$) in the USA you have the excellent Audio Technica AT LP7 with belt drive πŸ‘ Here in Europe we have the Magnat MTT 990 direct drive, I do not know if it is sold at home, but it is also a good candidate for the budget 😍
  2. Here the Gold Note turntables have very good reputation. They are beautiful and the range starts with the 425 until the splendid Mediteraneo. I find their arms splendid. They make the turntable for Bryston. πŸ‘
  3. I have a new TEAC TN 550 optimized with some options: mat cover acrylic, granite support, presser puck Millenium, African black wood headshell Yamamoto HS1A ... and with an AT VM740ML. The result very very good and not too expensive: 1000 € here for turntable + cartridge and accessories. The TEAC TN-550 is very good with this Jelco Arm, it's great because you can change the VTA. In the past I had beautiful turntables: Linn Sondek LP12 with Dynacector Ruby, French Turntable 80kg with unipivot arm LurnΓ© and cell AT33E, ... 😜
  4. Hello ! Great your research on my region πŸ‘πŸ˜œ In Beaucaire there was a huge fair, one of the largest in Europe, from 1217 until the 19th century. There were up to 170 boats per fair on the RhΓ΄ne. https://www.persee.fr/doc/geoca_0035-113x_1953_num_28_4_1380 In Beaucaire there are also Roman remains of Via Domitia and around less than 12 miles away, there are the arenas of Nimes and Arles, an ancient theater in Arles and of course the Pont du Gard. There is also known the medieval castle of Beaucaire and that of Tarascon in front. And then not far from Les Baux de Provence and Arles where Van Gogh painted many paintings. Sorry for this long "off topic", so back to Forte III 😁 I agree, it's better to play the tone controls rather than changing the speakers.
  5. Yes ! It's Right πŸ‘ And for upgrade our actual heritage : Heresy III, Cornwall III, La Scala, AK, ... That would be good, no?
  6. No πŸ˜€ I use both, a McIntosh C504 preamp with its fabulous phono section. Then in passive biamping McIntosh MC2125 in the bass for the K33E and then a beautiful Cary SLi50 of the beautiful era, 1996 for mine. I use 5U4G SED Svetlana NOS tubes, then Psvane, and finally EL34 Mullard (JJ 6CA7 on pics). The solid state provides a large and powerful bass and then the tube amp a warm and suave sound for the Klipsch horns. 😜
  7. J'adore, veinard 😜 I love, lucky 😜 😍 AK6
  8. You will give ideas to the Klipsch factory πŸ’‘ They will make a white version of the CWIII 😍
  9. Very very nice KHorn 😍
  10. Yes there is a problem with the pair, especially for the matching veneer with the other speaker. It would have taken 90060 with 90059 or 90058 with 90057 For Klipsch : MATCHED PAIRS Each pair of Heritage Series loudspeakers is grain-matched using wood veneer panels that come from the same timber. Each cabinet is carefully matched so that each speaker in the pair is practically indistinguishable from the other. The speakers move seamlessly together through the factory. Each finished product is inspected and labeled with sequential serial numbers, ensuring that the Heritage series speakers leave the factory as a meticulously crafted set.
  11. As far as I am concerned, I am in passive bi-amplification. A Mc 2125 in the bottom and the fabulous Cary SLI 50 (version 1 : 2 x 30W in class A) and I am happy like that since 1998.
  12. In 2016, I had done the same thing by contacting the technical support of their site to ask them about changing the valve rectify on my SLI50. He had fussed that I do a relaunch on the commercial contact of their site after ten days and the technician then quickly answered me.
  13. You can do like me, having your plates made by a local craftsman
  14. Thank, for this info williamss πŸ‘

    Here we use linseed oil for wood, do not put too much and wipe with a soft cloth the rest. To listen to Robert Wyatt on your Klipsch, I recommend this LP from 1974 https://www.discogs.com/fr/Robert-Wyatt-Rock-Bottom/release/388615
  16. I do not have the answer, but I'm curious to know what is this mystery !!! The big plus is that the 2 numbers are consecutive : 35501 and 35502 ! And then it's a nice up for Milk
  17. Yes I saw and I do not know why your serial number does not give you the year! I hope someone on the forum will have the answer.
  18. For serial numbers read this KC = Klipschorn - Model Type C, no "collar" BR Birch Raw ...
  19. Congratulations for these beautiful Khorn, they are beautiful in this livery If I had to clean these Khorn, I'd already dust off with a vacuum cleaner and pay attention to the speakers. First gently sand with iron wool grade 0000, again suck the dust. Then I will try to feed the wood with linseed oil, do not put a lot of oil, then wipe the oil that does not penetrate the wood with a soft cloth. http://www.steelwool.biz/Steel_Wool_Grades_Uses.htm https://ardec.ca/en/blog/22/linseed-oil-a-natural-solution-for-wood-finishing For fabric covers if they can disassemble and there is no speaker behind, you can try gently with a small steam cleaner! Good restoration
  20. Thank dtel Yes !!! Cornwall has Cornwalls and La Scala at the theater Last pictures with other camera and more sharper
  21. Here are more beautiful pictures of the plates. They are polished brass and engraved and the letters are painted black. The edges are bevelled, it's beautiful on the Klipsch!
