  1. Any perspective on the SIT 3 sound? I have 402’s with HF powered by F3, wondering about the sound signature of other First Watts. thanks, Ted

    What I Got Today!

    What were your impressions of the M2? Have you compared to any other FW? I think you just sold it, but can you give an assessment of it. I have an F3 but looking to try more FW amps. thanks, Ted
  3. Remember to use the proper color cable ties!
  4. Has anybody had problems with Rew connecting to UMIK 1? I just got one to replace my Dayton UMM6. After one successful sweep Rew tells me it doesn’t recoconize the mic. I have to restart my computer and then it’s fine for one sweep, then I need to restart again. Any ideas appreciated, Ted
  5. Not everyone agrees (as I’ve been reminded), but, we’re just joking around here, so...
  6. Don’t forget that once you mod them, never refer to them as Klipsch
  7. @Chris A,I’ve been doing this method, with steep drops and rises where drivers meet. Rereading this thread you are advocating shallow drop offs. When you “trim the ends” do you use PEQ to get both drivers to rise and fall slowly, similar to a 6db/oct ? Mine have been very steep, following the natural driver drop off/rise. Ted
  8. I’ll take it....sent you a Email.
  9. Aric make wonderful pieces. I have a Motherload 6sn7 preamp...it’s fantastic. He does great work! Highly recommend! Ted
  10. I know this is a vague question, but any recommendations for 12ax7’s for the VRD? I have Telefunken, Brinmer, and Mullard 12au7’s, but only 1 pair of ax7’s, rca commander? looking for smooth midrange, don’t care about bass, I have separate amp for below 500hz. Ted
  11. Well, not much response... but. I swapped the VRD in and removed my pass XA25... I’m keeping this VRD! I think I prefer it over the Pass. IDK, but I’m going to keep listening, it does so many things well. I can’t see any reason to sell it now. no longer for sale. thanks, Ted
  12. IDAGIO is FLAC 16b 44.1kHz. Primephonic is FLAC 24b 92kHz, but my Bluesound streamer doesn’t support it. Im strictly 2 ch stereo, no home theater. i could plug Blu-ray player into my DAC, MHDT Orchid, (USB, Toslink) or into preamp inputs, (rca) I have a great DAC, so I feel like bypassing the Blu-ray players Dac would yield better results.
  13. Thanks for the recommendations! I’m currently only steaming from IDAGIO, but having difficulty finding some titles, perhaps I need a blue ray player? Any recommendations from anyone for a player? thanks, Ted
  14. Yes, great for getting set up, but not much after that. It’s surprising how little I can find about using X console from people who use it.
