  1. Yes, after much kicking, gnashing of teeth and cajoling, I get him to cancel the unfilled sale of tubes and refund my money (not via PayPal as I paid him [actually his wife], but going to Walmart for a money transfer). Of course, after the ordeal, which was occurring at the beginning of issues with Shaky & MEH's amps, I don't trust he actually delivered what he promised. Lesson learned: you get what you pay for. And @Fido; if I just had that 300mm lens...
  2. Not minimizing anyone's comments but playing devil's advocate, I suggest the Forum owners are concerned with the information & impressions newbies, not long term members, may find when they are considering buying Klipsch speakers. Newbies log on and find thread after thread concerned with “improving” the speakers. The implicit message being “ I bought these Klipsch speakers and they don't sound good, so I need to ‘improve' them.” As a newbie, why would I drop a minimum of $3K on a Heritage speaker than needs" improvement?" They may not grasp these are prior generation speakers that are being discussed; they are newbies. Also, some people may have drifted away because they thought this was a Klipsch forum, not a DIY workshop. After all, if you are happy after purchasing your Klipsch speakers, why read about modifications? If there is no discussion or real world impressions of current speakers posted, how is that Klipsch’s fault? Forum members are are responsible for this information, else this is just ad copy. Why are interesting reviews and comments posted on Steve Huff’s site, Hoffman’s and several other sites rather than here? Why do we tolerate snarky and condescending posts from some long term members? My “ignore" list is much longer than my “follow" list. I suggest that may drive more members away than the inability to discuss non Klipsch crossovers.... Personally, I think PWK and Roy have done a fine job creating & updating the Heritage and pro lines. When I win the lottery, I want to find the earliest set of ‘horns available and restore them to original spec so I can hear what started all this. But at the end of the say, is this truly a life altering issue or just one more slightly annoying change in the world?
  3. IMHO, Joe never received the recognition he deserved for his abilities. On my play list regularly.
  4. That's like saying I only mentioned the King of England and King Charles had the audacity to respond. Silly.
  5. If you want to try a single ended amp with no assembly required, the Willsenton R300 Tube Amplifier uses 300B tubes. It received a very good review from Steve Huff on his Heritage speakers. It runs about $1500 on Amazon with free shipping (a big deal). And if your don't like you send it back. That’s pretty much a win-win.
  6. Oh; the image is also on five Facebook marketplaces for $5000. Come ‘on, somebody bite. On the other hand, I have a deed to a bridge connecting several boroughs in New York that generates positive cash flow. Who wants a 1/64 interest for $1000? Seems to me posting these scams is not a good idea. Does anyone on the Forum actually think you can get a set of ‘horns in December 2022 for $900 plus $19 shipping? Quit helping these scammers.
  7. Let me get this straight; a pair of ‘horns for $900 plus $19 shipping from a brand new account on that website. That sounds legit. Go for it and keep us posted on how long it takes to undo your credit rating and bank account.
  8. Sure it is; his first sentence says he “moving on” from them and his third sentence says “before I sell.”. His subsequent post confirms it. The OP's issue is maximizing return, not restoration or giving a bargain to the next owner. No offense, but his post clearly says these are not his forever speakers.
  9. Dead stock except the thing on the right side 🙂
  10. Its the same at the GM plant here. You’d think you were on Gratiot Ave. Not so much at the Nissan plant.
  11. From the Eddie Current website’s FAQ: Will you service an Eddie Current amp that was modified by Maestro-Modders? Modifying your Eddie Current amp will not only immediately and permanently void the warranty, but also ensure that we will never touch your amp ever again. Trying to figure what other people may have done is a pain in the ***.
  12. What crossovers are inside?😎
