  1. Homebrewing

    Little late to the party here. I've been brewing for about 4 years now since I moved in to the new house. The two neighbors got me into it, which has been really nice since I haven't needed to buy any of the equipment to get into the hobby. We're mostly all-grain unless there's a good deal on extract kits that are hard to pass up. I've got a 3 year old Columbus plant growing. Harvested one ounce from it last year. It's fun to watch those things grow almost exponentially. Stop by if you're in the KC area for some homebrew and heritage Klipsch. We also do meade and will be taking the dive into beekeeping this spring. Good times ahead.
  2. I believe that option continues with anything within their heritage line.
  3. Noob Here - Set up questions

    Welcome to the forums and getting your toes wet with Klipsch. A bold move to ask an open-ended question like speaker wire recommendations for your first question. On less refined forums that might start an endless onslaught of unshakable opinions. In an effort to take out a lot of the fluff and the "why this" and "not thats", here's the two most common recommendations I've seen on here. Monoprice Choice Series 12AWG Oxygen-Free Pure Bare Copper Speaker Wire Or the PVC jacketed pair might look attractive if you're at all worried about snagging it on something KnuKonceptz either the Kord or Karma Like I said those two brands seem the most popular around here. 25 feet isn't really a long run of wire, so anything bigger than 12AWG is not going to give you any noticeable improvements and you could probably even use 14AWG. The flat wires you'll come across look nice, especially when tracking around the house, but due to its flatness, it is more susceptible to electromagnetic field (EMF) interference. Again, would they be noticeable? I'm tempted to say probably not. As far as connectors, some can argue against them while others argue for them. Those that are for seem to recommend these: Sewell Deadbolts GLS Banana Plugs Others have mentioned to stray away from the Parts Express plugs Hope this helps. I personally use the Monoprice option and Sewell plugs and have been happy.
  4. What I Got Today!

    Good eye, just a cheap old set. Drumming is too much like dancing for me, more of a rhythm guitarist myself. I was up in Minneapolis awhile back to pick up some hereseys and ended up with those oiled oak Fortes2 instead. Their not sequential, but they sound great. Yeah let me know if you're ever travelling through.
  5. NA - Estate sale 2/24 (Saturday) in Waukesha, WI. I emailed the company and said items would be listed at set prices. They estimated these would be listed at $2,000, but didn't know until Friday after assessors were done. Worth a look at if you're close. @Rivernuggets, you're in WI, yes?
  6. What I Got Today!

    Thanks and I will report back, although probably be starting a new thread to do so. I have a bunch of odds and sodds that I would like to solicit some opinions on to see which would be the *best road to go down. Currently everything is running out of the Denon AVR-X4100W. I have a NAD 216THX that I think I'd like to incorporate for 2 channel listening, but I also do HT close to 50% of the time. I haven't looked at things close enough to figure if there's an easy way to do all that. I use the Oppo UDP-203 for movies. And then there's my "project" list, in which I'm basically just needing to find the time. Those include: First Watt M2 clone Center channel following @billybobg's La Squatta project A proper sub, probably leaning towards something in the Marty line or an F20 No active switching options at the moment that I use. My Denon does have "A" and "B" options so I could implement that. Prior to last night I had the La Scalas as L/R and a RC-35 for the center with the Forte IIs as surrounds. Thanks, super excited to have them!
  7. What I Got Today!

    Thanks. Best practices would say so. I just got them set up last night around 11pm where I originally had the la scalas, so I couldn't give them a proper hearing test. Putting the right channel in the actual room corner would move it about 9 feet more to the right. I'm afraid that'd it would throw my imaging too far off. I probably am looking at a false corner in the end for that guy. I really don't have the optimal space for the khorns but I heard that wasn't a valid excuse for not having a pair.

    @EPICKLIPSCHFAN's Khorns made their migration to their new home in Kansas City last night and are getting along nicely with the others.
