  1. 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?
  2. 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... 😓
  3. 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.
  4. Welcome to the forum. What speakers do You own or wich do you want to buy?
  5. 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!
  6. 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?
  7. 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!
  8. 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...
  9. First piece finally done.
  10. Don´t know if this is still relevant, i can confirm, reached 50 post today, went to being a "advanced member" and can now see & edit my signature.
  11. I use RS3s in my setup, You won´t be dissapointed.
  12. This may sound stupid, but You can also perform what is known as the "sub-woofer-crawl". You place the sub on Your sofa ect. and "crawl" around the room, on your knees. The spot where the sound is best, is the place the sub should go to.
  13. 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!
  14. This is one BIG supporter of going to Mars, Robert Zubrin:
  15. Hello Alain, Welcome to this forum. While i don´t have a direct answer for Your question, did You see this post? Maybe You´ll get some answers here or can still contact the original poster. Good luck!!
  16. 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?
  17. I feel with You, these might be good speakers, but then they are quite a drive away. Had the same thing with a receiver i was interested in lately.
  18. 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?
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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?

    The Other Discs

    Got interested in them when i read about them in the vinyl-thread, arrived yesterday: And this came in yesterday as well: Great records.
  24. 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.
  25. Are there real, ernest people out there that buy "accessories" like this. Isn´t it obvious that this is Voodoo?
