    The K402 is ideal for this purpose.  With the driver axes crossing in front of the listener, very little sound spills out toward the side walls, and the area of stereo effect in the room is enlarged.

    I had not heard of crossing the K402’s like you mentioned so I tried it today and I was pleased with the results. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Oh, of course I am serious. It is why I use only 12g Platinum wires because the density of the metal helps prevent excessive puddling.

    Need to use rhodium Dave, it will not puddle.

  3. I don’t believe in floor cable lifters. If the lifters touch the floor, regardless of the material the lifters are made from, they will still not inhibit problematic electrical cross contamination. The only way you can lift cables successfully is with cryogenically treated .0003 cm rhodium wire suspended from your ceiling and attached to the cable and lifted off the floor. For this to have a true sonic effectiveness you need need to paint the area under the cables with a magnetic paint.

    Is that an inflationary price

    I expected the high bid to be between $1,500 - $2,000. I would think that the high bidder would already have pretty nice tubes and can’t imagine these offering a substantial SQ difference.

    They don't image like regular audiophile speakers. That's enough to turn off most audiophiles, for whom a precise imaging that forms BEHIND the speakers plane is mandatory. 

     

    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.

  6. 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.
