    The other system is a McIntosh C31V feeding a Xilica SP-4080 to a pair of MC2002's with 2-way Jubilees. CD player is shared with main system.
  1. My sister had one of those - it did work flawlessly.

    I'm sorry to interrupt but I now have it in for @jimjimbo as KC and the Sunshine Band has been stuck in my head since he posted it! I am a longtime metal fan but must admit I grew up with that - and admit the brass in it sounds good. P.S. If y'all tell on me, for liking that song, I will say my account was hacked.

    Last year was my first pilgrimage and both my wife and I really enjoyed the entire event. Meeting John Shalam was one of the highlights as he was approachable and friendly, an audio nut like me. Christy, Elden, Roy and Rodney (lots of others too) provided the family feel even though the event was fairly large. While my two daughters are not ready to attend I am working on them as it was family friendly. I was surprised by the mix of different people with Klipsch in common along with the easy going conversations. I think it is what you make of it. I have my room booked already

    A motor like that would be my stereo.
  5. Earphone Advice

    After having a chance to use the X11's I really have to agree again - these are the most comfortable I have ever worn. As a bonus they reproduce many different kinds of music with good balanced tone and dynamics, a thumbs up recommendation from me. I wish I had gotten another pair.
  6. CES 2018: Klipsch Blog

    There is a nice blurb about the Klipsch Museum in the Klipsch Heritage Classic Brochure on page 14. This is part if the Press kit.
  7. RIP Jerry Van Dyke

    He could really play the banjo which I enjoy seeing every time I watch McLintock - RIP
  8. Welcome to the forum GSM. While I am not a Heresy owner I do know that parts are available to restore the modified speaker to original configuration. I would have a hard time believing that tweeter would sound better that the original, that said without hearing it. Also better upgrade parts designed for that set of speakers are available as well - try the Bob Crites website as I have bought great replacement parts from him that fit exactly. www.critesspeakers.com - no relation to me other than I am a customer. P.S. Nice find!
  9. Hopefully the 1502 will become available and a third LP Bin.
  10. Home Theater Receiver question

    I have used Yamaha products since 1989 and been very happy with them - still have the original integrated amp I powered my new at the time Chorus II's. Currently I am using one of Yamaha's Aventage receivers with and RF3 setup that has been without issue for many years and it sounds great. While I prefer Yamaha my advice is at least buy something at least midgrade.
  11. Earphone Advice

    I stumbled on a deal for X11's just before Christmas and have used them for several days. Schu is right about the bass being lite but they do sound good and balanced - better than my R6's. They are lighter and easier to wear than any others I have tried. A bargain at the price I paid.
  12. Happy Birthday

    Happy birthday Christy!
  13. Internet slowing down on several sites

    Just to throw in my two cents, you do realize the Net Neutrality was enacted only about two years ago. The Internet has been around decades - Right?
  14. Forum Rules Updated

    Thanks for the heads up Chad - The TOS was easy to renew.
  15. honest indoor 2 channel

    I agree with dtel, somebody should have told me sooner as well. I have Jubilee's in a 20 x 22 foot room and they sound better that my reference home theater and my Chorus II's. I think you need to redo your math.
