  1. Big fan of (early) Chicago, Blood Sweat & Tears, etc. Just have not found any "current" bands that play their style of music. Anyone? Thanks, Emile
  2. Have a Nikko Beta-B which I'm very satisfied with
  3. Suggest you look for a Crown K1 or K2. Had a Marantz 2256B (about 60wpc) on my Pro KPT-904's (w/JBL horns) and wasn't quite satisfied. Switched to an A-S1200 (90wpc ?) and it was a nice improvement. Then, switched to a Crown K1 (350wpc; you need a pre-amp with this) and the result was "night and day."

    Knee Replacement

    Had a knee replacement 3 years ago. Did not bother me before replacement but thought it was a good time to do it as I was in perfect health. Three years later; can barely walk 100 yards ... swollen all the time ... have to wear a brace ... etc., etc. Was done by a supposedly great surgeon. Be aware that the outcome may NOT be as good as "sold" by your surgeon Best of luck! Add-on. Knee replacement was a Smith & Nephew. VP of that company is my neighbor - they checked everything and are 100% sure it is NOT due to their product and are pointing to the surgery. Surgeon said possible allergies ... tested; haha, nada. Also had multiple X-rays ... they show fluids accumulating in the knee
  5. Sorry; this post is NOT about my Klipsch speakers Have a strange problem that I have been trying to solve for months now One of my pool lights went "out." Pulled the fixture and replaced the LED bulb. Nothing Thought it might be a transformer problem so replaced my (aging) electricals with a new (all-in-one timer/transformer) Intermatics box. Still NO GO on second light. The strange part is that I do measure 10.2V at the fixture, but nothing when I screw in the light bulb Even tried wires from the fixture directly to the bulb - NOTHING. And yes, bulb is fine - checked it with a 9V DC battery. Appreciate any thoughts on this. Many thanks, Emile
  6. Well; UPS finally paid up ... took SIX months ... horrible service
  7. Contact @tromprof . Believe he has Khorns with K-402's
  8. Haha; tried about a year ago and the answer was "NO."
  9. This is a reminder to DOUBLE BOX and FULLY INSURE (or OVER insure for market price) everything you ship Send a TEAC X-1000R Reel to Reel deck to @michaelwjoneson approx 8/6/2022. Was single boxed, but did meet UPS packing specs. Of course ( 🙂 ) UPS smashed it - think they dropped it from at least 8 feet, or forcefully threw it on the floor. Michael informed me and I filed a claim with UPS the same week. First it was "disapproved;" which seems to be standard operating procedure. More calls and now it was "approved." Got notices from UPS to file docs at several links. Of course the links did NOT work; even phone numbers given by them did NOT work. Horrible start Continued calling them once every 2 weeks and usually got the same BS like "we do not have all the information needed," even though I mailed it in and send it via email at least 4 times. Finally, about Nov 1st, I was told "it is being processed and you should receive a check within 5-10 business days." Of course, NOTHING. Called mid November and was told the same thing. NOTHING Called today (12/1) and again ... processing; check in 5-10 days. Keeping my fingers crossed We'll see. FYI, there is a direct number for UPS Claims ... it is 800-430-2055. Haha; that is a UPS secret Anyone else with these problems? Cheers, Emile
  10. Suggesting RB-75's or (a PAIR) of RC-7's. Both have the larger 1.75" drivers which make them sound much better.
  11. Haha; probably about 60dB's for TV ... close to 100dB's when I turn on my KPT-904's
  12. RC-7's are awesome. Using two of them as L/R speakers for TV sound
  13. @Heritage_Head What AVR did you buy? You can probably run the LS's directly off that, then add a MiniDSP and a cheap d-class amp for the 510's - just to try it out
  14. Maybe these FleaBay crossovers would work ... https://www.ebay.com/itm/324036039661?hash=item4b720d93ed:g:vacAAOSwebheFapu&amdata=enc%3AAQAHAAAAoIF9dqMCsYgYH7aYevU5yncLD%2BLvvUPIJ1kAY%2Fz%2BqcVlrYvYYahme7X0fG4Ik8BVQ%2FJ6qYz4CpaRgWmCHl6tUzIy8BhPU5uSPAF1TytNfcm5c46%2F5J15adQh5t7I7pNa1a8%2BVHwq6fnUYqONUyhR0C0hgoWuhmsfSxC7ghKyY7dQ%2BomTJbn5%2BZ2NuDn%2B%2F3LdOgqjW2ogCGszNqUuNao7fD4%3D|tkp%3ABk9SR8L0nvqMYQ Add-on. Seems these XO's are for dual horns. If the frequencies overlap you cannot use them ... but if they are "separate," maybe you can combine them You would still need a lower XO for the LaScalas - get it from (NOT ALLOWED TO MENTION)
  15. Haha; obviously mis-remembered also. Good luck with the sale - good price
