  1. Dave's been a long time member and moderator and it is pretty obvious since first starting this thread there has been new developments. I do not particular like the drama going on in this type of thread. Dave has contributed much to this forum and it's success over the years and I do not like to see him leave this way. I hate to see friction among the staff that run this forum but I do not think it appropriate to make it public on this forum. I also do not like the idea of a private BS section among a few on a Klipsch speaker forum. And I am glad it no longer exist. That kind of thing is better had on a general social media site of which there are many. This forum should be only about Klipsch speakers and the gear that is associated to make them work. Anything else should be addressed in the lounge section for all to see. Dave I hope you change your mind again and participate when some time has past for you to get over whatever it is that is going on behind the curtain. There are many that will miss you including myself.
  2. Having never heard the Hypex's I cannot argue with you about how they sound. The technical part of me still says class A is the most linear of all the classes and that does not mean all other classes can and do sound great if implemented right. Since diving into class A sound the last 10 years I looked down on class A/B until my last amplifier build a 150 watt class A/B amplifier. It incorporates all the improvements in circuitry in class A/B over the years. Outstanding sound. Much the same can be said for my TPA3255 amplifier, outstanding sound. All that being said the most satisfying sound for me is one of my tube amplifiers.
  3. I think there must be something wrong with the software you used to rip or something that you did or did not do. I say this because I download MP3 320 files all the time and yes they are not quiet as good as the CD but are not offensive in any way and are acceptable to listen to.
  4. I am pretty sure the price is for a pair and Amazon is showing in stock.
  5. Terrible news. So sorry to hear about it. RIP
  6. I do not think you will go wrong with any of the Klipsch options available with what you have described. https://www.amazon.com/Klipsch-Reference-Floorstanding-Cerametallic-Ebony/dp/B00TT430L4/ref=sr_1_7_sspa?crid=4HP9YN4R14M8&dchild=1&keywords=klipsch+speakers&qid=1611060828&rnid=2941120011&s=electronics&sprefix=klip%2Caps%2C648&sr=1-7-spons&psc=1&smid=A3MHJLSLQR2CVH&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExWjIyMFhOOEVXSjg0JmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNzY0NTE0MTVPS1RCTDVUVEc0SCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNzEyNTEzMjM3M1RRODBKMTNPVSZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX210ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU= Just one option in your price range new. For more go to Amazon and type Klipsch speakers.
  7. First thought Richie is a variac of some sort. Is there any name or product number on it? I have never seen a variac with a big cap in it though. Anyway it appears to be a test instrument of some sort. Probably specifically made for a specialized piece of equipment.
  8. For me a pound a year. At least until the last couple of years where a pound has lasted 2 years. Always used 60/40 and never a problem for me. I keep and use flux on repair work and big wire and components when necessary. Does help tremendously and may be a useful product for those that have not done or do not do a lot of soldering.
  9. Glad you decided to stay Dave.
  10. I agree, why even post this thread if you are leaving this forum. If you are leaving the forum why the shock of not being a moderator. Does not make sense Dave. Just politely accept the results of your post of leaving the forum and the consequences of it.
  11. Mallette no offense but it should not be unknown to you from some of your recent post. This is a Klipsch forum not a general social media forum. Personally I believe Travis has done a lot to clean up this forum where it is not just for a few but for more newbie's to participate and post. I have been a lurker for many years without joining fearing attacks from some of the favored members who ruined it for anyone that disagreed with them. I think the changes the last few years are better for the Klipsch name and represents the company better. I could be wrong about Travis being the driving force for changes but I think I am right and I welcome the changes. Instead of posting to try and cause controversy by starting this thread just accept the change and contribute in a positive way in the future. In the future you welcome the change of not being a moderator. Naturally no one likes to be fired and they feel angry at first but it might be the best thing that has happened to you.
  12. The diy amp camp amplifier does sound really good for what it cost to build when one considers it is a class A amplifier. The Amp Camp is a single ended amplifier which I call more the culmination of most of the Zen series of diy amplifiers with one output transistor only. Nelson called it hearing one transistor clapping.
  13. Good point. He may just need a phono pre-amplifier. A mistake a newbie to phono's could make very easily. Especially those that did not grow up with phono's. But these day most phono players have a built in pre-amplifier.
  14. That out acts more like a tape out, not being controlled by the receiver volume control. There are some very cheap passive volume controls on Ebay that will reduce the amount of mv from that output and should work for what you intend. In other words you need some attenuation of that output.
  15. Beware of anyone calling, contacting on any forum, email, etc wanting money for anything. I only pay those that I contact or buy on Ebay, etc and even then you may get scammed. Recently happened to me on Ebay for $15. Item never shipped from China. When Ebay or Paypal contacted they said wait a number of days. When the days expired then they said too late. The seller posted on Ebay shipped without a tracking number with a long due date for delivery. Lucky for me only $15.
