  1. Surely someone could make good use of these. I’m not in the market, but I’ve always thought these were a good design. Good luck with your sale.
  2. This has been sold. I’ll amend the listing as soon as I figure out how to edit the original post.
  3. It’s still available. If anyone wants to try an external amp, this is a good chance to get a nice one. I’ve never been insulted by an offer. I may have turned it down, but hey, at least there’s a starting point.
  4. This is still available. My wife will be going to her sister’s for a few days, I might just take things apart and try to find a way to use it in the family room system. So if you are on the fence...
  5. For me, the difference in the two options is damn subtle. Although I will say that the voltage source was somewhat more pleasing to my ear. At least through the La Scalas, other speakers might be different. It’s nice to have options. I’ve never used the XLR Inputs, as my AVR doesn’t support them. Supposed to be quieter, but I can’t imagine how it could be “quieter” than completely silent. But hey, maybe so.
  6. Thank ya. I think they are more than just an HT Amp. This one mostly saw two channel use driving La Scalas, where it sounded great with just about anything you’d care to hear. Everything from horns, Hammond B3 Organs, to cellos. But it is certainly capable of some serious cinema sound when called upon. “The Hobbit”, was phenomenal. I know I sound like I’m selling it; oh wait, I am selling it. 🙂
  7. Certainly. Let me know if you need to see anything else.
  8. Sunfire Cinema Grand Architect’s Choice Series II, Five Channel Amplifier I’ve recently upgraded my “music room” to a Sunfire Cinema Grand Signature amp, and had planned to use this one in the family room system. However it won’t easily fit in the AV stand, and rather than redo everything (0 WAF) it makes more sense to just sell it, and let someone else make use of it. Output is 225 Watts/channel, with all channels driven (8 Ohm load) It works perfectly, is dead quiet, and sounds fantastic. I’ve even replaced the lamp in the Joule Meter. While it is in great working order, it does have some nicks and scratches also one small dent in the top of the case. The face of the unit does present well and it looks good in the rack. I’ll be happy to send additional pics, if desired. I’m limited by file size on this post. $850, plus shipping, I’ll work with ya on shipping, as best I can. Pick up is possible, if you are close enough to make it worth your while.
  9. I’ve got La Scalas and Heresy Is in a relatively small room. 13’ X 20’ X 7’. You won’t be disappointed with either choice. I use the Heresys with a turntable powered by a tube amp, no sub, for the pure “old school” experience. The La Scalas do everything else from 2.1 to HT, and they are awesome. If your tastes run to more a more modern sound, you’ll want a sub. We didn’t need them back in the old days, because we didn’t know anything else. I resisted the subwoofer for years, I was wrong. A horn loaded subwoofer paired with La Scalas is really impressive. Good luck, whichever way you decide.
  10. I’ve got the Denon 3700H in the 5.1 family room system. It powers RP280Fs, RC62II, & RP502S. It does a great job. It’s mostly used for TV & Movies, but does well with music too. I’d imagine either of the Denons you mentioned would work well with your Reference speakers too.
  11. I’d suggest having a look at DIY. I’ve built a couple of Bill Fitzmaurice’s horn loaded “Tuba” designs and they are great. They blend very well with both my Heresys and La Scalas. Their performance is quite impressive they don’t overwhelm, they just blend well and add the musical bass that I’m guessing you are looking for with your set up. With your Heresys the Tuba T18 (or two) could work quite nicely. There are plenty of affordable plate amp options with speaker level inputs that will work with your receiver, and Heresys. I did a couple of build threads on here and I’ll figure out how to attach a link to them. His plans are affordable and easy to follow, even with a minimum of woodworking skills. I think it’s ok to post a link to his website, if not I apologize. https://billfitzmaurice.info Good luck, there are more than a couple of folks on the forum that can really help you out if you decide to go that route. I’ll be happy to answer any questions that my meager knowledge and questionable skills will allow.
  12. Fantastic build. The progression from a set of trim pieces to two complete speakers is priceless.
  13. Actually it is still available. I’m sorry I didn’t see this sooner. Let me know if you are still interested.
  14. You have to bug them every ten days or so. Squeaky wheel.. I think it took about four weeks for my replacements to arrive.
