  1. My personal experience with RF7-iii's is the more clean power you feed them the better they sound. I started with an avr and felt something was lacking, in the end I settled on an Emotiva XPA-2 Gen 3 amp. 300 wrms/channel @ 8ohms both channels driven really woke the RF7-iii's up and showed what they can do. The xpa-2 is also modular so you can add channels later if you want to go 5.1. 30 day trial and a 5 yr transferable warranty also nice.
  2. I got mine from Crites, simple to replace work great
  3. Back in the 70's was "..on a quiet night, you can hear a Ford rust... "
  4. You can order them from Klipsch if your in the US or Gentech if in CAN. Model K-77 D (unless you have the newest LSII's) Part # 1006875 from Gentech, not sure if its the same from Klipsch direct. Yes this is the complete tweeter.
  5. https://www.amazon.ca/Ancable-Replacement-Connector-Headphones-Headset/dp/B078K5NQFF/ref=sr_1_10?keywords=3.5mm+connector&qid=1552537788&s=gateway&sr=8-10 Just get something like that and some speaker wire and make a set. But you do realize you will find the old ones the day after you replace them
  6. Just call them and ask, that's what I did. If they are going on a new line of speakers they should have them in stock.
  7. Yes you can buy the black and copper badges from Klipsch, they are called Jubilie badges. I bought 3 6 months ago for my LaScalla II's
  8. heres another pic with Crites CT--120's installed
  9. Nice to hear some well deserved praise for the base Reference line. They really do hit way above there price point. Its these speakers that set the hook in me and sent me on a journey up the Klipsch line. For the price you can get these on sale online , just about anyone can afford to step into the world of higher quality audio and these are a great introduction to Klipsch.
  10. TBH if you have the room just go to the R-28f( R-280f, R-820f ) towers and be done with it. I went a similar path as you Promedia 5.1 to RF-800 (another older version) towers with the RC-500 (older version of R25C) then to RFiii's then to Las Scala II's. The biggest "WOW" factor in that line was when I went from the pro media's to the RF-800 towers. The center and sub you already have are a match for them towers.
  11. Don't forget to ask the seller to transfer the warranty to you. Only he can do it by contacting Emotiva. The amps come with a 5 yr transferable warranty.
  12. Think I missed something, could all you guys plz repeat all that
  13. I used an Emotia XPA-2 Gen3 to power my RF-7iii's. 300wrms @ 8ohms per channel and much better SQ than the Crowns I was using before. New gets ya a 30 day trial and 5 yr transferable warranty . The RF-7 line really likes power. I started same as you with an AVR and had the same issue. Feed them lots of good clean power and you will not believe the difference, they will really come alive. https://emotiva.com/collections/amps/products/xpa-2-gen3 Unless you're nuts about the "tube sound" I wouldn't go that route as it would cost yer left nut to get that kinda power in tubes. Think tube pre-amp if ya want that direction. I also like to blast it loud at times so we are similar in tastes( 60/70's) and SPL levels( just ask my dead LSii tweeters) 😆
  14. My LSii's are 2012 , Bobs CT120's/w z brackets fit perfect. Nice and snug. The screw pattern was different but Klipsch was kind enough to pre--drill piolet holes right where the z brackets needed them
  15. This is what I did, save yerself some grief. Yer still gonna have to do some head scratching and maneuvering to get them unboxed and in position in that room.
  16. I had the DacMagis Plus but switched to the Emotiva DC-1 only because I decided to got all Emo gear so everything built to match. I use J.River Media Player softwear for my Flac files on a computer I slapped together just for my audio system. I also have Spotify Premium and Tidal HiFi for streaming on the same computer. THB, if you get something like Tidal HiFi , you'll prob seldome use yer files on computer as sound is just as good. The only time I use my cd's now is if its an SACD and I play them on an Oppo 203 and use its Dac for them.
  17. Is it a DacMagic or the DacMagic Plus, the Plus up-samples, not sure about the base one. Oh , and the kb/s is a speed the 192 is khrz sample rate 24 is the bit rate
  18. I used an Emotiva XPA-2 Gen 3 to power my RF-7iii's, until I fed them some serious clean power they were underwhelming. The XPA-2 brought them to life
  19. Seen another of his vids from a few days ago where he's at a dealer talking about the Heresy 3's. He also mentions he has a line on more Klipsch speakers to listen to in the near future. Seems he's going to work his way up the Heritage line. Seeing how enamoured he is with the RP-600m's and H 3's, should be interesting to hear what he has to say when he hit's the LaScalla II/Klipschorns.
  20. Got my Z-brackets yesterday and installed the CT120's. I've only managed some 8 hrs listening since then so for now I'll just put up some preliminary POI's. 1. I set my trebble to flat and so far haven't had the urge to raise it ( big plus for me) 2. While I'm hearing more in the hi's I'm not getting anything sizzley , very smooth sound. 3. Definitely consider these to be an Upgrade in SQ so far. I'll try to post more details this weekend, I'm off work for a while so will have lots of time to listen this week.
  21. I blew 1 of my LSII tweeters about a week before you did yours in. I've had a factory replacement in for about 3weeks now. When first installed I found the new one brighter,crisper? than the old one. It took about 2 weeks for them to lvl out, but I still think the new one sounds just a lil..well newer? lol Any how I received a set of Crites CT120'sjust waiting on the z brackets that I didn't order with the tweets 😳 doh! Hoping they will be in by Monday. Back to original question, yes I do think thers a burn in time, give it another week
  22. YESSS!!… I do love a screamer ! 😁😉
