  1. Yes; that's what I used it for OK; $500 anyone?
  2. Just checking to see if there is any interest for a Xilica XP-2040. Bought it new a couple of months ago and used it for maybe 4 hours. Paid about $800 for it and an additional $50 for XLR-RCA cables. Think of asking $650. Tried integrating JBL 2446H drivers with CF-3's in a small stereo room. But, going back to a simple CF-3 only setup Also bought a DAC for this - a LavAudio DS600; see https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08XX1NXJL?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details . Includes bluetooth and unit has gotten very good reviews. Paid $250; how about $150. Haha, also got a Yamaha M-45 for this. Don't remember what I paid for this Any interest, let me know and I will make a full listing for these. Cheers, Emile

    Haha; someone get these FAST before they are gone
  4. Have some extra 2TB drives that I used in a NAS - upgraded to 4TB Western Digital Red PRO drives (7200rpm, "CMR.") SMR vs PMR, see https://www.reichelt.com/magazin/en/smr-cmr-which-hard-drive-is-best-for-which-purpose/ ... it solely depends on your intended use; if accessed all the time as in a NAS, use CMR Drives I have are HGST, 7200rpm, SATA 6GB/s. Stickers say Aug/2015 and Oct/2015. Do not know how much use they have had. You are welcome to them; just pay for shipping But; think it is better to buy new drives WITH warranty. Suggest WD Red Pro 2TB - wd2002FFSX about $85 each on Amazon. Your listed Seagate drives (2TB, 7200rpm) are probably OK in a server setup, but they are SMR drives. SSD's are a bit more expensive ... cheapest "good" one is a Samsung QVO at about $180 for 2TB. Any questions, let me know Cheers, Emile Add-on ... unless you run in RAID, do not get "used" drives
  5. No clue about this website ... don't know if it is an auction or a "buy" or a scam. Currently $100. Also don't know if it is a KP-250 or ??? Dual speakers with stands. https://www.listedbuy.com/merchandise/electronics/sarasota-fl/2-vintage-klipsch-speakers-2-ultimate-speaker-stands-xc?utm_source=OodleMerch
  6. Have a similar set made by Klipsch (KPT-904's with 510 horns). Wife did not like them first, but put grilles on them (and enclosed the horns). Now she loves them and won't even listen to my Heresies/Cornwalls If you have the room, these larger PRO speakers are the only way to go Night and day compared to even the Heritage series. Take your wife with you to audition those JBL's!
  7. You can just use a 1 to 2 optical splitter
  8. Picked up a Lavaudio DS600 (version 2, with BlueTooth) a month ago from Amazon for $170. Wah ... it is now $250 Reviews are very decent ( look for DS600 review on AudioScienceReview.com ... for unknown reasons unable to post link ). Supposedly a copy of the Topping D50s. Yes; Chinese copy and had to fight with the manufacturer to get the correct drivers - but have them if you need it. First DAC I bought so have nothing else to compare it with
  9. The "Mesquite, NV" Khorns are listed on the forum ...
  10. Yes, latest version with mumps Ordered 6 about a year ago; from memory they were $18 plus change. No problem, order confirmed ... then they "only" shipped 4 and told me the remaining 2 had to be transferred from another warehouse first. Never happened; order was intercepted by "management," and was told the previous ones were sold "in error." Pleaded many times (including 904 serial numbers, etc) and was promised help in finding "extra" ones. Haha; nothing ever happened. Sold the 510's (at my cost) to forum members.
  11. Haha; yes, got a couple at less than $20. Then I got "rail-roaded." Even my pleadings with KPT-904's serial numbers and pics of damaged 510's did NOT help So; thank you Klipsch ... switched to JBL
  12. OK; my all time favorite (after Beethoven's 9th). All Along the Watchtower. Might be wrong but think it is the song played by most (reputable) musicians Here's a couple of versions ... of course "Jimi" is first
  13. @Subway ... haha; never heard Genesis, Illegal Alien before. Awesome Here is one of my Genesis favorites; Jesus He Knows Me
  14. OK; classic George Harrison, Clapton, Elton John, Phil Collins, etc ... While my guitar gently weeps ...
  15. Was posting some Santana links in a different post and saw this one - which I have not heard for ages Thought you might like it
  16. Emile


    Yes, "obviously." Don't even think I could have fooled you with an old Dutch band such as "cuby+blizzards." Actually, this clip with Gato Barbieri on sax is much better
  17. Emile


    Haha Here's two of my favorites; Europa and Samba Pa Ti ... @jubilee333 ... play these
  18. Emile


    Actually I am in St. Petersburg (Tampa) and don't visit Miami too often Funny you mention Miami; my wife used to work there (many years ago) and at least once a month she tells me she went to Monty Trainer's there ... and a gentleman from the crowd asked to jam with the band ... it was CARLOS SANTANA Yes; electronic is my second favorite to hip hop

    Yo, brotha ... no; ONE minute was all I could stomach

    OK @jubilee333, after you've checked out the above ones from @MicroMara, I'd like you to test your speakers with the following ... haha, I did listen (OK; 1 minute) to your hip-hop 1812 Overture ... just play the last minute Next, Ode to Joy (Beethoven's 9th finale), done by 10,000 Japanese Note, when you play this from your PC to your Kenwood the sound will not be "great." (Because the digital to analog converter, or DAC, from your PC is low quality. You may want to invest in an external DAC. (PC USB to DAC to Kenwood.) Almost bought this one last month for $100 https://offerup.com/item/detail/1072457694?q=topping+dac Cheers, Emile
  21. Haha, blu-ray in black & white. Great 1964 movie
  22. You can start with a miniDSP 2x4HD for about $200. Note; do NOT get the cheaper basic miniDSP - too much distortion. Then, move up to a Xilica 2040/4080/etc. depending on how many in/outs you need. (Picked up a new 2040 a couple of months ago for about $650.) Note; Xilica no longer makes these units, but the will provide tech support.

    Haha; thanks for the warning. Yes, played the first minute of this. And they label this as music??? Going to play Tschaikowsky's 1st violin concerto (at 110dB's) to get this out of my mind

    Congrats! Glad you got the Kenwood also. Not familiar with this model, but the (better) Kenwood's from this era are much underrated.
