  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Fantastic build. The progression from a set of trim pieces to two complete speakers is priceless.
  4. Actually it is still available. I’m sorry I didn’t see this sooner. Let me know if you are still interested.
  5. You have to bug them every ten days or so. Squeaky wheel.. I think it took about four weeks for my replacements to arrive.
  6. Same in my “Music Room”. I’ve got two Heresys in a similar position. I’ll agree it’s not optimal. But YPAO seems to be able sort it out without too much trouble. I don’t do a lot of HT there but the sound is quite good when I do.
  7. This is still available, in case there’s any interest.
  8. I must admit when I first swapped out the originally installed earpieces my first thought was, replacement pieces aren’t going to be easily available. It looks like I may have been correct.
  9. Post pictures of your project. Many years ago I had a similar project. As others have warned be careful if you sand them, as the veneer is quite thin. I managed to burn through a spot on the top of one of mine. If I had to do it again I’d first try a chemical strip (in a discrete spot) to see if it might work. After I managed to remove the three layers of paint, I stained and polyurethaned mine, I wish I’d just oiled them instead. Oh well, live & learn. Good luck. I hope you got a great “yard sale” deal. I’m never lucky enough to find those.
  10. Klipsch sells a replacement volume pod, for a reasonable price. I’d almost bet that would solve your problem.
  11. We just started that a couple of weeks ago! We are only on season Two. It’s the best show I’d never even heard of. The beauty of it was, that we’d just finished Deadwood, so there are all those, moments of recognition. Great TV.
  12. I can only say they were made in 1978. But if the rest of the speakers are in as nice a condition as the tags they are pristine. @HDBRbuilder built one of my pairs of Heresys.
  13. There is still a part of me that thinks(thought?) all the CBD hype is just snake oil. But the dog doesn’t know she’s on it. Even if the mental improvement are just imagined, the itching & rash are cured. And we’ve fought that for seven years.
  14. I know this sounds crazy. I don’t “believe” it myself. Yet here goes. Our dog has had some issues with itching. We had her on medicine that worked but was really bad as far as side effects. She was taken off it for other reasons. Long story short we put her on CBD Oil once the itching returned. Literally, she wascompletely cured in 72 hours. So we’ve kept her on it. Now the point. She’s always been a bit neurotic. However since she’s been on the CBD, it’s not only cured her itching, it’s helped her mentally. My wife and I at first we’re confused, she was acting like a “normal” dog and it didn’t make sense. Then we realized it’s been since she’s been on the oil. It might not help your cat soon enough, but it might be worth a try. I didn’t believe in it, but we were desperate to try something. Good luck with the cat. We just lost our 18 year old cat.
  15. It really is a good one. I think it’s underrated, or at least under recognized.
