  1. @Little Wolf I made a typo on first response... you do NOT have to place sub below Heresy. I did because I need the floor space, so vertical stack worked best for me. If you have space, move the sub around to fin best placement.
  2. @Little Wolf the Velodyne receives signal from pre out of whatever amp is driving the Heresy. The Velodyne are powered subs so they take the signal, I use LFE input from amp pre out, and process via their amp. Hope that helps. if looking for a sub, closed box, front firing is what you want. You do not have to place the sub below the Heresy like I did, mine are that way to save floor space.
  3. Ok, now I don’t feel so bad about my ,,, ah hem... inept soldering and layout skills.
  4. @wuzzzer, good idea for the MOST IMPORTANT speaker ever made by Klipsch! My 1980s are documented in thread 1980 Heresy... these are my HT rears. My 1981 are no longer Klipsch Heresy, rather modified Heresy, close to the super Heresy recipe, these are my mains, HT L/R For low end the 1981s are supplemented by Velodyne DD10 sealed box, front firing subs. No problem with low end. We built stands for the Heresy and the subs sit in the bottom of the fronts. Hoping to build a set of Heresy clones and use one as centre... currently using two Cambridge Audio Aero bookshelf The Heresy speakers have been with me for 40 years, moved 6 times, never missed a beat. Best value ever.
  5. @Coytee, totally cool but might be hard on the shoulder ala boom box, however might double as centre channel in HT? i know I’ll catch flak but... Bose soundlink and BT from my iPhone when I’m outside working.
  6. I’d be interested except for the Covid testing required to cross over and the two ferry rides each way. GLWS, but I’ll keep a watch on these.
  7. Stay safe everyone! Baton Rouge... oil refineries... not good.
  8. @YK Thom, ah ha, now we are at the crux of the matter... collecting and ripping is just the tip of the ice berg. when I considered the whole job, I decided to buy a complete one piece solution... a Bluesound Vault 2. As a music server it manages all the ripping, storage, human interface, playback, Internet access for streaming, Bluetooth etc. I could have built a PC or Raspberry, managed the operating system, ripper, storage, human interface, playback, streaming software ... but I’m lazy and retired so a commercial product got me into my listening chair faster. There are lots of choices you’ll have to consider in all the software and hardware categories and getting them to work together and remain compatible through various release points... my only real suggestion is to think about and research the whole job before going too far on any one step. Once you have a solution it really is wonderful... although I still prefer my old TT and a good LP with a scotch! EDIT: oh, I forgot to add the thorny issue of a DAC for playback... almost as deep a subject as choice of capacitor for a crossover update!
  9. And WAF is the only metric that matters.
  10. @DougM, the Luxman also have remote control. And the command codes are (hopefully still) available for download to a Logitech universal if you get a unit without the original remote. I have only owned the R-117 so can’t comment about differences other than what’s on paper.
  11. @DougM welcome. I was going to suggest a used Luxman R-117 or 115,114,113.... but if the HK didn’t work for you I’m not sure about vintage Luxman. I have an R-117 that to my ears is way better than my Denon x4300h was, more depth/body and low end sounds better. The R series have phono, tuner etc pre amp, includes pre out if you want a sub and good power. Mine is in for the same maintenance that you did on your HK, will be interesting when it’s back, hope it sounds as good or better. Good luck with your search.
  12. Perhaps a CHROME browser problem as I have the same symptoms on my iPad in Chrome but not Microsoft Edge.
  13. Nothing, absolutely nothing goes on top of my 40 year old Heresy x 2 pair. Don’t even think about it! oh, let’s water the plants on top of the speakers! Ayeee!,,,
  14. Very glad I bought 2 pair of Heresy 40 years ago and still have them... a fantastic value. Hope to build a 3rd set (all original drivers but new crossover and cabinets) of not Klipsch Heresy with son in law. Being retired, I can’t afford anything new in audio.
