  1. Here’s another myth my system sounds better than yours 🤣
  2. I have to disagree. My Klipsch speakers image beautifully. Wide soundstage with depth and nice focus on placement of individual instruments and vocal. Primarily all the sound is behind the speakers. The funny thing is I used Paul McGowan’s book to set up the speakers for my system.
  3. Welbornes top of the line 45 mono amps. Purchased July 2022 from a well established Klipsch Community member. Plenty of info / reviews online. Reason for selling is I replaced the Welborne’s with amplifiers with a little more wattage. Both amplifiers operate 100%. These amps were professionally built, “not by me”. SS rectified and Auto Bias. The wood has a few minor marks. Photos of amplifiers and included tubes and Endlers.
  4. For your consideration a pair (2)FAITAL HF206 (2" HF DRIVER, NEODYMIUM, PUSH, 8 OHM) Purchased new July 2021. Reason for selling, I replaced the Faital drivers with Celestion AXi 2050. $350 price includes free FedEx shipping in continental USA.
  5. No man has a complete toy box without a cannon 😀
  6. Grandmothers are very special. Heartfelt condolences in your loss.
  7. I use Psvane 845 in my amps and they do great. I just got the itch to upgrade.
  8. Thank You. Your explanation makes sense to me. I was looking at some RCA 845 tubes on eBay. The seller stated that the tubes had been degassed before testing. After reading your explanation, I would reason that the tubes before testing contained gasses that would have given a less favorable analysis outcome. And as you stated the tube can become gassy again.
  9. What is the purpose of degassing tubes before testing ?
  10. That is a really nice amplifier Michael. If I was in the market for a amplifier it would be gone. Good luck with the sale.
  11. I haven’t any personal experience with the F3 other than great reviews, so I can not objectively compare it with the SIT 3.
  12. My experience with the SIT3 as amp duty on HF with 402’s was very satisfying. A little veiled but natural sounding with a nice sound stage. I have gone in a different direction (tri-amping). I use tube amps to cover MH with the 402’s and tube amps to cover the HF horns. In my system tube amps are better sounding for the vocal and give more of a 3D presentation. A lot more invested to create this additional difference. I could have lived happily with the SIT 3.
  13. I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.

  14. I purchased the Behringer NX6000D new and was going to use it for subwoofer duty. I purchased a slightly used Crown XTi 60002 at the same time. Auditioned both in the system for a couple days and decided on the Crown. Shipping to continental US only.
  15. I purchased the DriveRack Venu 360 new. Used it for 2 weeks and put it back in the box. Works perfect just not best for my set up. Lots of great reviews on the net. PayPal and free shipping. Continental US shipping only.
  16. Condolences the the Smith family.
  17. Horn #1 Large crack Horn #2 spider cracking
  18. Update: Sold For Sale : $1,200 1 pair Klipsch KP 456. Included are a pair of Klipsch 402 horns. Cabinets are mounted on 4” swivel & lockable (no mark) casters. Also included are the original factory installed rollers, included passive networks for one stereo amp, and original hardware for unlocking cabs. Intact factory grills with logos. 402’s have cracks but are repairable and do come with horn mounts. The 402’s do not have drivers. With a little effort you could have Klipsch 942’s. Everything is working and in good shape. All was previously purchased from Klipsch forum members. These do not come up often and can create an incredibly big sound stage. Cash or PayPal Local Pick up in Jacksonville, Florida PM me with any questions One of the pictures is a comparison between the 456 and 301-ll
  19. I remember this, 😆 Even then I did not think it was a good idea to drop one album on top of another one.
  20. Funny this was brought up because a picked up one of the last pieces of my audio puzzle today in Savannah, GA. and I’m feeling the same way. Now that I’m happy with the system it is time to sell off some of the pieces that got me to this point. Klipsch KP 301ii klipsch kp115X klipsch KPT 456. I will list them in the Klipsch garage for sale section after I get some pictures, point being that audio satisfaction is a lot of happy with a side of sad. 😉
