    That's interesting.  Maybe they're moving to Phoenix?  They live in my city.  Maybe I'll pop over and get the story.

    I responded to this Phoenix Craigslist ad awhile back. I emailed asking a few questions and ever heard back.

    What really strikes me is, I seldom EVER see higher end Klipsch speakers go up for sale in SLC. A very rare occasion!

  2. That's one sweet receiver/amp! Your particular Sansui G5700 is the only Sansui amp within my amp collection. All of my other receivers are vintage Marantz and this particular Sansui is the closest sound to Marantz that I've ever heard. We all know that "warm sound" that vintage Marantz units provide. Tempting ...

    not sure what you mean by that, where do you see most all caps are electrolytic?  the caps for mid & tweet circuits aren't electrolytic in any of the Klipsch speakers i have owned or seen, AK/AL-3,  AA, & all the forte/chorus or other models of that era use a mylar type cap.  most aftermarket upgrade caps are polypropylene or other type.  

     

    yes you can match the values on the stock caps & decide what type you want to use. 

     

    Still I wonder, why not bypass Electrolytic AND Mylar capacitors all together? My understanding tells me Mylar caps do make a significant sound improvement although, they're considered minimum quality audio capacitors when used in an audio signal path.

     

    True or False?

    Better are polypropylene capacitors, and even better are polycarbonate capacitors when available.

     

  4. Is there any kind of reference chart  that'll tell me which Jantzen, Clarity, etc. caps are used for the AL-3 or AA xovers? It seems I have brand new leftover caps pertaining to different Klipsch speakers that have no homes. I'd be nice if I knew what caps went to the various boards on Khorns, Lascala's and Belle's. Hate to buy replacement caps if I already have them.

    The only think I have to go by are the microfarad/voltage readings between old and new caps. Is that enough? Still learning how to do this.

     

    Thanks!  

  5. It seems the greatest desire regarding sound reproduction is the V2's opposed to earlier V1's. I personally like the way the V1's look. More of a tractrix style over elliptical. Anyone favor V1 over V2?
