    Pro vs Heritage

    I wish I had more pro speakers and could see how khorns sound compared to 396s. I’d guess the 396s have a better top end and the khorns have cleaner bass. And much lower bass.
  2. Belle/510 with a sub if you have the room.

    Class D Crown vs. Hypex nCore

    What’s the latest on this?
  4. I’ll buy those horns if you wanna sell em.
  5. Lucky dog. They have any more in stock?

    Settled on noice cancelling headphones

    Have you noticed the max volume doesn’t seem loud enough? I feel like I have to be all the way up most of the time. Zero overhead.

    Jube/1802 - The Ultimate 2.1

    It actually works very well as a center and keeps up surprisingly well for what it is up against. It’s not a 100% seem-less transition for movies, but 99% of people would mostly likely consider it good enough. I will still be building a mini jube for the center. K510 with matching radian driver, with a belle-ish bass bin. Unless a 402 falls in my lap. In which case I’d probably do up a MEH.

    Jube/1802 - The Ultimate 2.1

    The system sounded so good with factory components I was hesitant to change anything. But I trust that the experiences I’ve read on here of members that have changed the HF compression driver for a higher quality unit to be true. I had my heart set on TAD 4002, but they are unobtainium. And when you do find them, they are grossly expensive even used. I weighed my options and did as much research on the topic I could bare. The next best candidate for the money seemed like Faitalpro 20at. They are discontinued though. While you can get them, they are very rare. Even though people have gave testimony how great they are I figured I would try Radian 950pb’s. I liked the idea that I could upgrade the diaphragms in the future to beryllium when money allows. There is so little info on how drivers perform. And so many variants in room and system that you really have to take everything with a grain of salt. I was told by a dealer the Radian was slightly better in his opinion and his staffs opinion than the 20at. Being that they were similar priced I closed my eyes and hoped for the best. I know I would be happy with either and that I will never know what the other sounds like. But this time next year it won’t matter which driver was better after I get the new diaphragms

    I guess I am due for a room update though. I’m slowly learning this complicated(for a newby like me) system. I’ve got more acoustic treatment finished up. I’ll probably stop here til I get a custom skylight cover and clouds. It’ll be nice to get to know the system better and learn to know their sound. At this point the sound is new enough and changes take place often enough that it’s hard to tell the changes that I make at times. Cornwalls are inset and trim is in the process. I’m mostly done and when I am I’ll post an update. In my mind it has made a nice improvement in aesthetics.

    They sound amazing. They already sounded great. I’m enjoying the extra detail that they bring. It was costly, but I’m in this deep already so what the hell. I’ll really be excited when I upgrade the diaphragms to beryllium. I don’t like to be left wondering what else there is left on the table.
  11. After doing a little looking around I believe they are the de75. Just comparing pictures back and forth. It looks to me the de750 has a chrome ring just before the magnet. Both the de75 and k691 are black in the area. I was under the impression the k69 was a de75 and the k691 was a de750. The k69 clearly is a different manufacturer. That agrees what I read earlier about them being PAudio drivers. I will say this. The radians I just installed are better than the k691s. But slightly smoother and a little better highs. As in bells and symbals are more sharp and precise like glass breaking. The k691 was a little more rolled off sounding. It’s funny that I swore the music couldn’t be improved any better than i was hearing with them. The k691s really do sound that good. Completely unnecessary that I upgraded them. I’d say they are 5-10% at most over the k691. And they were almost $1000. So take that unbiased mini review for what it is. It’s really splitting hairs at this level in my opinion.
  12. What negativity did you hear? I don’t think Roy would have chose it if there was an issue. It’s just a b&c de750. No one has confirmed the hardening of the factory diaphragms that I’m aware of, but I know klipsch buys lots of them and rejects several if they aren’t up to their standards. It is said to be a nice improvement over the older k69/de75. It is what they use in the reknown ki-396 that people are loving with a k510. Either way, best of luck to you. There are a lot of nice drivers out there.
  13. Man that’s lucky. I paid considerably more for mine I got from the museum used with a k69. New price the best I could find was over $650ea But yes I have like new k691s for sale. I just pulled them off my Jubilees yesterday. They really have very little play time on them. And I’m certain they’ve never seen more than 2w.
