  1. Here is mine, La Scala AL5’s LCR, Fortee IV’s surround, RS-62 II surround back, RB-61 II front height, and 2 rhythmic 15” sealed subs.
  2. Not to leave well enough alone…..then there was three and Fortee IV’s for surrounds. End game has been achieved 😁🥳
  3. I did this for a while when saving up for my heritage 5.1 setup. 3 RC-62II’s up front dedicated just for HT use. They did sound pretty good for stereo also.
  4. Luckily just four legged, poodle and French bulldog, but they love music
  5. Yep, critter deterrence already planed 😁
  6. After 40 years, audio nirvana has been achieved, except for the temp rack as I’m still waiting on parts. 😁
  7. Thanks for the advice folks, all my cabinets are hand made by me using 80/20 aluminum and premium domestic and exotic hardwoods. After thinking about it, I will temporarily modify me existing double rack that the tv sits on, move my equipment to a single width rack. This one is my turntable rack trimmed out in rosewood.
  8. Help guys, la Scala AL5 arrives today but the parts for the new tv stand I’m building are back ordered till August. Is it safe and/or advisable to place the tv on top of the new center lascala temporarily? Stupid COVID bug. The tv is a Sony 65” OLED weight about 70 lbs
  9. My friend has a pair of 1974 Birch Klipschorns for sale, he is asking 3500 for the pair, local pickup only. Located near Glide Oregon. If interested please contact me and I will get you his contact info Smitty
  10. Thanks guys, my third AL5 comes in on Monday, and can’t wait. Currently listing to “echo’s” by Pink Floyd and the sound stage with my Rogue Atlas is making me “Comfortably Numb”. I’m in Sutherlin Oregon, pictures coming soon. 😁😁
  11. So I put the Fortee IV’s in place of my Rs-62 II’s and what a perfect match to my La Scalas. I had to drop the Fortee’s volume a touch but I did configure them as full range (large) speakers and they fill in perfect, so well in fact I dropped my sub volume by 3db for a smoother base presentation. I’ve been experimenting with 4 channel stereo and I really like the sound. Now it’s a waiting game for the Scala center to arrive.😁😁😁
  12. Once you go heritage you’ll never go back. Replaced my RF-63’s with La Scala Ii’s, then upgraded to AL5’s last summer. Just replaced RS-62 II’s with Fortee IV’s and have a third La Scala AL5 on the way to replace my RC-64 III center. Best move I’ve ever made.
  13. Here is my current setup showing my existing system.
  14. Thanks for all the replies folks, bit the bullet and have 1 la Scala AL5 on the way with 4-6 weeks estimated delivery. Might sound nuts but also got the Fortee IV’s on the way to us as surrounds. I’m thinking this is probably now my speaker end game and could not be more pleased. 😁😁😁
  15. Thank you Islander, your advice is greatly appreciated.
