  1. For starters have a look at these links:

    The manuals show You each series, i think if You want the bookshelves of each class, the small centers should be sufficient for You. Hope this helps for a start.

  2. Zuerst, mein herzliches Beileid zu Ihrem Verlust.

     

    The 1.5s have four holes on their bottoms for mounting on a "omnimount" wall-mounting-system. I want to fasten my speakers with two bolts to my risers, using those holes. German M6 can only be screwed in with the tip. There is a difference between metric and imperial threads. I searched a few local DIY markets, but up till now came up blank...

    Have You encountered this problem before?

  3. Welcome to the Forum Chris. Those are great speakers, thought about keeping them for yourself?

    There is a section called "Garage Sale" for stuff like this, maybe the Moderators can move Your post? Also, it would be great if You posted some pictures of the speakers and of the Klipsch label on the back of each speaker. That way folks more knowledgeable than me can advise You on prices.

    Good luck!

  4. I still got one as well, should turn it on more often. We might run into a problem here in old Europe, as production of classic lightbulbs has been stopped by EU law a feww years back. Every no and then i think to myself, i should put away some spares, before they run out of stock in Germany.

    What´s the situation in the States/ Canada?

  5. Flowerpots on speakers... I bet those cabinets will have some stains for shure. I´d be weary of a seller who treats their speakers as just another piece of furniture.

    On the other hand, if they are all good inside and sound right, the cabinets can always be fixed. Do You have a chance to listen to them before you buy?

  6. So, it finally turned out to be a Marantz SR6008, five years old and in almost pristine condition.

    The 4310 was too far away and someone else got to the 4308 first.

    Set up the Marantz yesterday, and, after some starting trouble, got it to run. So far sound is great already, wonder how much better it will get once i´m done. As Wuzzer pointed out, i don´t need all the high resolution stuff now, but this way i´m set for LED in the future.

  7. New sub-project. This is some of the wood for the risers i will make. They´ll be only around 10cm high, but it´s enough to raise the 1.5s to roughly ear-level on my computer desk. Parts on the left already received some oil.

  8. I´m in a pinch right now. I found two offers on Ebay. One is a Denon AVR 4310, missing the Audyssey mike and i´m also doubtful about all over it´s condition (haven´t seen it live yet, pictures online look rather shabby.). This one´s quite far for me to get to. It´s 300€ plus the mike for 40€ and about 11 years old.

     

    Then there is a AVR 4308. It seems to be in much better condition, although 13 years old, comes with everything and has all the firmware updates aviable from Denon. It´s closer to home and 210 bucks.

     

    Now, i´ve read that the 4310 is supposed to sound that much better then the 4308, really? Anyone with experience? I value this forums input, not shure how to proceed.

  9. Thanks for Your input Wuzzer and excuse my late reply.

    I did some hunting, but it´s quite difficult to find decent gear. You´d think there should be tons of stuff here in Berlin, but no. Either i won´t fit my needs or it´s overpriced. I almost got my hands on a Yamaha RX A2030, but then it turned out the guy was selling it for his friend and there was no way to listen to it and check, and hell yeah, for 500€ i want to test...

    I now found an offer for a Denon AVR-4306 wich seems decent. Any thoughts about that particular Denon?

  10. Hello Guys,

     

    I thought for a while if i should start another thread asking about speaker/ receiver combinations - here we go again.

    I´ve been pondering about getting a new av-receiver for quite a while now and it was always the new stuff i thought about. Recently i had a chat with a local dealer and i told him i needed a receiver for a 5.1 set-up and it should be a universal model ( for there is a chance i might be moving from Germany to Japan in a few years.). He told me, why buy new? I still have a CRT-TV (last one made by Panasonic), so i won´t need the very latest UHD ect.. And once i move, i just keep my speakers and buy used again in Japan. As one of the possible choices he recommended the Marantz SR6010 which fits nicely with my budget.

    I want to drive RF3s, a RC3 and RS3s for HT and my Heresy Es for stereo. Power for stereo should be enough at about 180 Watts per chanel. I´m a little worried about HT, the 6010 will supply about 95 Watts with 8 Ohm speakers per chanel. Do You think the 6010 will be enough to feed the RF3s?

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    I'm not against streaming, but I prefer to own, not rent my favorites, plus I already have 2500-3000 CD's.  I love the CD/SACD formats.  I pretty much dig all optical disc formats but CD and SACD are my preferred ones ,due simply to their audio-centric designs.

    My sentiments exactly. I like to have my stuff in my shelves and not online, i can still export my music to more mobile formats if i want.
