  1. Original Forte

    Oh, and welcome to the forum, John. What part of Co is home. Before Intel transferred me to Phoenix, I lived in Colorado Springs for 14 years. Loved it, and will retire back there. (But I may do the snowbird thing)
  2. Original Forte

    $180 a piece would be a good deal. For a pair is a very good deal, assuming all is in working order. In the past two years I have seen one pair near me offered for less than $500. Most sellers in Az ask closer to $700. As to the pedestal question, I do not know. Others here with more in depth knowledge can advise on that. What I mean about the pedestals: I do not know if they were originally sold without them. I have seen many used ones without. The picture you posted is a Forte I. Most I have seen for sale lack the riser. Apparently it is the first thing to go on these vintage speakers. The folks on this forum who own them, love them.

    Does it work well on its own? Or will you need a sub (espresso) to enjoy de full effect? Sometimes I bi-amp (Colombian and Guatemalan) or tri-amp. (Add French Roast) Tubes (French press) or SS (drip system)?

    Got the garden in. The large plant is a pepper which survived the brutal Phoenix winter.

  11. Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    I have two signs: one is for Rancho Chupacabra, our first house in Az, the other is "Rancho Twopacabra" our current abode.

    Spraying weeds at Rancho Chupacabra would be a lot less onerous chore if the weeds acted like this
  13. @kink56 I live in Chandler Az, and have a pair of la Scala. If there is no one in Your general area that you can get a listen from we could probably arrange a session. The only turntable I have is a Victrola, so vinyl is out, but cd's will work. I use a 1980's SS Yamaha pre and amp for signal processing. No sub yet. I am generally available Fri & Sat after noon. Sunday after 1300. Shoot me a PM if yer interested.
  14. RC-52 and Heresy

    No. We have a built in entertainment center, and I only have ~ 7.5" clearance top to bottom to fit a center in the TV cubby. Any recommendations on a low profile center which would suit the Heresy?
  15. RC-52 and Heresy

    Is either of the RC-52 a good center for a pair of Heresy in an HT set up?
