  1. Where are you located? Any opportunities to demo? I've demoed the Forte IV next to the Cornwall IV and preferred the Cornwall IV -- my local dealer has both. The room was, however, larger so that is a consideration. CW to me seemed to perform quite effortlessly. Price as always, is a consideration. I own Forte III and Chorus II. Have not heard RF7 line.
  2. Doesn't the Sphinx (integrated amp) have tube pre-amp section (12AU7), while the amp section is SS? Seems to me to be a good option.
  3. Thanks. I did open er up and looked over the manual. Couldn’t notice anything obvious so it’s time to realize my limits and get this to a tech. Thanks for suggestions.
  4. Thanks, Randy. I'll look for screw A. Billybob --- my daughter has been using this for over a year. Sat before that, but I had it looked over before she started using it. It looks to me like at least some of the parts are lubed, so I image that occurred when it was looked over. Of course, she hadn't complained about anything until recently.
  5. Thanks, MicroMara. This gives me a few things to look at.
  6. Hi --- before looking for a tech, I thought I'd ask and see if anyone has suggestions for me to try here. Have an Akai AP-004 that spins and functions fine with one exception -- The unit has a typical tonearm up and down in the back, but doesn't have a start button. Rather, in the right front of the unit, there is a button that can be moved back for "Repeat", and if it is moved forward, it is the "Start/Cut" button. So, in an ideal world, hitting start/cut either starts the process of the tonearm playing, or stops it whilst playing. The issue is that when playing, and then hitting the start/cut button to stop, the tonearm just re-starts over and over. No way to end the cycle without unplugging. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks!
  7. First image search is from Reverb ad in Plano, TX (allegedly): https://reverb.com/item/45708857-klipsch-klipschorn-kb-wo-l-f-walnut (also seems like a scam --- "owned by an older gentleman who never played at high volumes"
  8. Thanks. Maybe it was "Pro Cinema"? I thought there was a post by Cory (Paducah), but can't find it now. Thanks for the info.
  9. Youthman did a side by side between Forte III and RF-7 II that may be worth a view. He also has other reviews of RF-7 line that might be helpful. Here's the F3 v.s. RF-7ii
  10. I thought you couldn't buy from the Cinema line unless you owned a movie theater or something like that (bulk buys). Assuming someone, in theory had Forte or cornwall, or chorus in the front, would the Cinema line work well for the back match-wise (assuming the person couldn't get or fit another chorus, cornwall, etc., because of space concerns). Curious.
  11. No affiliation. Can't see wood grain on pics, so might ask about that. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/462677538644130/?ref=search&referral_code=marketplace_search&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3Aad94b3f0-afdc-4857-8420-b5af35368aef

  13. I agree with this (above). YMMV, and FWIW, I swapped out the diaphragms in a pair of Kg2's I've owned since 1986, and thought it was a nice improvement.
