  1. iPurifier2 USB Type B Digital Noise Filter: Amazon.ca: Industrial & Scientific Is something like this what yer thinking of. From what I've heard if your DAC has built in jitter filter/re-clocker these are redundant
  2. Cool thnx for the info, I wondered what that update contained. Gonna go check it out.
  3. Looks like one of the RF-260/280 versions, driver size would tell which. Also noticed the binding post jumpers are missing makeing the way they have them hooked up wrong. The jumpers off is for bi-wiring/amping , they need the jumpers on for the setup shown here. If the jumpers are lost its no big issue as you can just use a short piece of speaker wire to bridge the black to black and red to red.
  4. Fried the voice coil, I replaced with a Klipsch driver I purchased from Speaker Exchange.
  5. I recently replaced the driver in my R115sw. To remove the ring just slip a putty(or butter) knife between the rubber ring and he wood an pry gently to lift a bit of it out, then you can easily just pull the rest out. Its a pretty solid rubber ring so hard to dmg it with just a little care. The screws will be easily seen once its out. After removing the screws you may need to pry a bit on the woofer edge to get a start on it to get it out. Be careful removing driver as once the magnet slips off its mount the full weight drops, its a heavy magnet and hard to control when just holding by the rim edge. The issue is that the wire leads that connect to the amp are a bit on the short side and if the driver slips from your hand and pull very hard on the connection to the amp. You may want to unscrew the amp plate on the back and disconnect the leads there first as the amp is much lighter and easier to handle. I made a new longer lead to connect amp and driver just in case I need to remove it in the future. Once everything is screwed back together, the rubber ring can be re-inserted and easily pushed in with your hand.
  6. I'll let you know when I get them
  7. Earlier this week I seen link to some nice Klipsch logo's ( Custom Engraved SOLID COPPER Klipsch Speaker Badge Logo Emblem Pair | eBay ) here in another thread, and thought they would look great on my LS II so ordered a pair. After I made the order I started thinking about some logo's LSII specific so I reached out to the seller ( audiotagsiowa ) and ask if he would make a matching set with Lascala II on them. Here is what he came up with ( Klipsch LaScala 2 Solid Copper Custom Engraved Speaker Badges PAIR | eBay ) I asked for them without the PWK logo as it was already on the other pair. Burton was great to deal with and is open to do custom work. He told me he had a hard time getting the light right for the photos but says the colour is just like a new penny. I think these look sweet and just wanted to point them out ( and the seller) to others here.
  8. My LaScalla II's were demos and had some light scratches. I used a fine black Sharpie marker and just took my time touching them up. Only time I can notice is in direct sunlight(which I seldome have the blinds open) and at just the right angle. I say go the sharpie way first, you can always sand and re-paint if you feel it needs it after.
  9. tried to read that link but nothing came up, I'll have to assume that it exists beyond my plane of perception.
  10. I just seen this and thought, wow did he just " fake news " a quote on an audio forum lol
  11. I put Crites CT-120's in my LSll's after I blew a K-77M. They sound great and can handle more abuse.

    While she's good I have to admit I also dont realy like this style . Similar situation,while I like spanish guitar I'm turned off by flamenco style. To me it seems to lack musicality or more importantly emotion. I fall in the David Gilmore style fan
