  1. If anyone in Germany/ Europe is looking for the right bolts to use for the Omni Mounts on KG1.5 & 2.5, i found them on Amazon: https://www.amazon.de/dp/B077GP3DLX/ref=pe_3044161_185740101_TE_item I got these longer ones, because the wood on my risers is quite thick ( About 1"/ 2,5cm).
  2. Wasn´t it the ozone layer that keeps UV- light from saturating Earth´s surface, i thought the magnetic field keeps the suns charged particles ( i.e. solar wind) from striping our planet´s atmosphere and water, like on Mars?
  3. Hello, welcome to this forum! I believe You´ve still got the "old" terminals on wich you use just screws to tighten bare wire to the speakers, right? If so, look closely, on one side, where the screws go into the terminal, the plastic is colored red. This may be hard to see if the plastic is dusty ( As it is on my Heresy Es.).
  4. Hello, I´m on the search myself. I follow this thread for example, some suggestions for starters here: Good hunting!
  5. Thanks, those are the ones i need. Found them before but somehow i forgot to bookmark them.
  6. OK, so if i remember my lessons right, i will need four 1 micro farahd caps, two in parallel for each one of the originals.
  7. Along my line of thinking. Later this week i will do some listening and post my opinions. Still open for further thoughts though.
  8. Greetings, fellow Forum Followers, This weekend i got a used Marantz DV7001 wich is connected to my Marantz SR6008 now. In the manual i read that the 7001 is capable of CD upsampling, but the signal is put out only via the analog outputs. My question is: Is it worth going from HDMI sound to analog output and upsampling, will the difference be audible with on my system (See my sig..)?
  9. Yes, still pure. My uncle bought these years ago, then gave them to my mother and now i have them. I´ve been running them for some some years now, but haven´t listened consciously, but all the drivers are working. At some point i will hook them up to my Marantz and see if the caps need replacing. Thanks for all Your input! I definitely have to replace the cloth on the grills and i need one new badge. Found badges on Ebay and i think i will order the cloth from Bob Crites Ebay channel. For the caps, if i replace them, i haven´t decided yet between Mundorf or Jantzen and wich class i want to go to.
  10. Ok, popped one open. No surprises, i think, nice and clean.
  11. While i´m not ready to start on the Heresies yet ( A new hifi-rack for my stuff needs building first.), i would like to take a peek inside the cabinets. My question is, are the backs of the cabinets seald with a gasket that i would have to re-new later on?
  12. That depends - soundwise, it could be as simple as just re-capping the crossovers to make them sound better again. The problem with restoring them 100%, at least for me, would be, i probably wouldn´t want to part with them. after having spent that much time and energy... For You, the better you can make them, the higher the price can be, You ask for them.
  13. So i see, you have gold lined speakers in the US too.
  14. @joshnich what do You think about the PLX-1000s "little brother", the PLX-500?
  15. That looks very interesting. Maybe, by the time i can buy a TT they will have a powersupply ready for european countries.
  16. For the RP600M the RP600C would probably be best. Tweeters and Woofers are same size, so the audio-footprint is about the same too and should give You a more homogeneous listening experience. Would You have the chance to listen to a system before you buy?
  17. Sale offer KG 5.5 on German Ebay: https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/klipsch-lautsprecher-modell-kg-5-5-mit-original-verpackung/1529106775-172-4907 Says in very good condition plus original boxing. Just crazy, but vintage Klipsch are rare here, sadly, and these aren´t even Epics or Legends. Don´t want to know what those would cost... 😓
  18. For starters have a look at these links: Reference: https://f072605def1c9a5ef179-a0bc3fbf1884fc0965506ae2b946e1cd.ssl.cf2.rackcdn.com/product-manuals/Reference-Speakers-2018-Manual-v02.pdf And Reference Premiere: https://f072605def1c9a5ef179-a0bc3fbf1884fc0965506ae2b946e1cd.ssl.cf2.rackcdn.com/product-manuals/Reference-Premiere-Speakers-Manual-v03.pdf 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.
  19. Welcome to the forum. What speakers do You own or wich do you want to buy?
  20. While i can give no answers in detail, there are others on this forum with more experience on that, i think it would help a lot to see some pictures of what You got. That way one can give better advice to You. Good luck with Your project!
  21. 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?
  22. Thanks @MicroMara I was lucky, got help from this forum as well as from my colleague at work, who is a carpenter. Hope to put everything to good use with my Heresies. @MicroMara , do You have any idea where to get bolts that would fit the omnimounts of the KGs? Thanks!
  23. Apart from doing the other riser, i´ve got to fing the right bolts that will fit the mounts on the bottom of the KGs. This could be a challenge, since they are non-metric. I have to see if any local DIY-market carries bolts that i could use...
