  1. I own Heresy Is and RF3s ( which the RP8000 descents from, sort of...). Used to have them in different rooms but have them together in the living room now for some time. I find myself listening to most of my music with the Heresy now, somehow the sound is more "rounded", i can't really put my finger on it. But having  a three-way for classic and 70's and 80's music is somehow more fun. Only my Heavy Metal and electronic music seem to belong on the RF3s, and HT of course. i also find it interesting to compare the same recording on both speakers, There's no "better" or "worse", it's just different for me.

    My two cents.

     The  Count . . . 

     

    You German edition is stunning.

    Yes, it's really nice, i'm sure there must be something like it in the English as well. It sits right next to a few selected volumes from Easton Press (The Hobbit, Asimov's The Gods themselves and a few others.). I think, if there's a similar English edition, Easton Press would make them. Might be expensive though...

    That is a favorite of mine.

    Which one? 😄

    I love my german edition of The Count. It's got the illustrations from the original french edition in it:

    As for Terry Pratchett; I've started switching out all my paperbacks with the hardback University Edition. Nice little books. I love the ones featuring DEATH.

  4. Resurrection time!

    I've decided to get a TT as well. I'll go down vintage road and will have a look at a Dual 1218 on Tuesday. " Ready to set up for audition", we'll see how that goes. I already made up my mind to rip the whole thing apart and do a revision. There's a german forum ( dual-board.de ) i signed up to with lots of help. If there's interest, i can post about progress, once i get to details. The 1218 seems to be an upper-level player for beginners these days, for me anyway. Really wanted a Thorens but was too slow (again) to get a reasonably priced TD 160 (200€). The Dual will be 55€, and i will have to work on it, but once it works it might be more fun than just plug and play.

    Just wanted to comment that my THTs have been impressing me more and more every time I listen to them.  Listening to music, watching movies, they handle everything that's thrown at them without breaking a sweat.

    I don't even have any EQ applied.  I just placed them in my room 19" from the wall behind them and gave them a go.  Eventually I'll get a minidsp and all that jazz but I'm just enjoying getting used to them for now.

    Those subs make the Heresys look like they are really just bookshelves...

  6. I was misleading, I wasn´t talking about myself. To expect a forum member in the US to help me out here in Europe would be a little much to expect...

    These speaker relais in my Yamaha give me some trouble lately, i have to push the appropriate speaker select button a few times to make the left speaker work on the A channel and for the right one on the B channel. I already gave the buttons a spray of contact-cleaner. Do you think it might be feasible to drill a little hole in them to get some de-oxifier inside?
