  2. Snow is gone , 50F here , strong winds and heavy rain , received a letter from my health insurance today , my rehab will start at feb 12. till march 5th. Looking forward  to that health treatment and trainee as I can´t stand these daily pains anymore, I´m tired to take so much pills against the pain since a couple of month. My Liver will be glad as well 😂

     

    Still having too much problems with my Wlan in that apartment , the providers net isn´t perfect in this part of the city , it´s too slow and takes to much time to load a thread and follow up all posts in the kc. However....I´m with you 🤠

    Your setup is beautiful but I wonder how you could have these in an apartment and not be evicted?  Even in a condo without getting warning letters from the association would be beyond my mind.

    😂 quiet funny ....AH ...they don´t need much power to reproduce a real impressive soundstage and 3 D holographic sound image in your listening room . Normal listening room levels around 70 dBA are fine , but I must admit that I´m a kind of audioholic since my youth , that´s why I have this range of different audio gear .

    What is this VIABLUE?  You have your 7s  biamped?  

    Indeed , the walnut RF 7 II are the most beautiful RF´s ever built by Klipsch . These´re the origins

    Here´s a pic how to unbox them , it´s from the owners manual

    The " ViaBlue Terminal is a german one, du to my re-design works it wasn´t possible to use the origin Terminal again.

    That´s the origin Klipsch

    And Yes I bi-amp them either with the ss amp, the class D or the tube monos. The best acoustical solution is to use the tube monos for the high pass and the class D for the low pass. That´s ultra stunning

    @Mycuff   Don't worry about a thing with that turntable.  He's got room for ONE more tone arm!  I can't wait.  I KNOW it's gonna happen!  😂

    You see Dave , the problem is  if I gonna do that , how shall I put a disc onto the platter ? 😂 NO, it´s fine like it is ! And I´ve got an option to make a heavy tonearm out of the middel heavy MA 505 , all I need is to use a much heavier headshell than it´s a heavy one , I did that with my AT V7 MM allready beacuse this cart needs a heavy tonearm for optimal scanning

    If you're planning on using the RF-7II's for 2 channel, I'm sure someone out there has a good recommendation for an amp.

    I own a pair of RF7 II in Walnut as well, they´re quiet rare in europe, that´s where I life. I re-designed my RF7 II a bit , optical and technical .  Pics ´re from my previouse apartment.

    other bi wire terminals

     

    EvoTerminalkk.thumb.jpg.ade68cfbed630bdc432c2c2fee21e937.jpg

     

    these´re my diy bi wire external x-over

     

    EvoPhase6.8.thumb.jpg.a7cbb21bce73bb19b9da3d44ff54d565.jpg

     

    I have different options to power them up . With a Marantz integrated PM 11-S3 SS , Cayin Tube Monos 929 D, Italien GoldNote M9 Class D Monos and different Pre Amp options as well . With a solid transistor amp they sound very good , with a Class D Solution they sound much better than a transisitor amp, they´ll shot you into heaven using a tube solution , should have approx. 50 W /8 Ohm , maybe a KT 88 Amp integrated or tube pre and power stage like I have as well. But it´s w/out using the RC 64 Center , so a multichannel solution requires another amp. But I don´t want forget to mention that the origin RF7 II have a great soundstage even w/out the center speaker .

    That turntable rig is insane.  I assume there is a reason for the two tonearms, but if you already have perfection what does the 2nd one get you? 

    The reason is that my collection of cartridges needs a very light tonearm , thats the SME 3009 ( left side ) and a middel heavy tonearm , thats the MA 505 ( right side ) . They all have different needle compilances.

     

    If you want to get more aknowledgement I´ll kindly refer to read this thread

    Every 3 months I pay close to $5 k to the tax man 

    And multi nationals pay zero it’s not fair 

    Well, Germany is the tax world champion, from every singel € we earn , the net value after taxes is 30 cent , so 70 % are taxes .
