    heresy

    I sent you a PM. I see you are close to me, I'm in Portland, OR.
  2. Yeah, that's a good idea. Maybe I will take both dimmer switches out too to see what difference it makes. The one that is on the same circuit certainly makes a difference when its turned off and it stays off whenever I am down there listening to music.
  3. I have a window this evening where I can shut down every breaker in the house except the one that the stereo system is on and see if that make a difference. If so, I will then document which breakers introduce noise as I turn each one back on and go from there. I have also added a Powervar hospital grade power conditioner/isolation transformer that I purchased for $60 from a guy here locally. I have the tube amps plugged into it and it has definitely cut some noise out which has been nice. Also as an aside, GIK has a really cool tool to draw your room out and then have them make a treatment plan from there. https://gikacoustics.roomle.com/t/planner/?mode=3D&id=a9v22dy7tc3ckls982o18sh2e08w73p&shared=1

    Can you post some pics? People can weigh in on price after seeing them.
  5. If they were aestheticlly pleasing, I would buy them right now, cause it could replace the Cornwalls in the living room, which I am politely being encouraged to do because of their size. Then I gotta find a place for the cornwalls! 不
  6. Thanks! I wish I could even justify having a use for them. And it seems like they are a bit hard to resell cause nobody has picked them up yet.
  7. Which tweeters would you have to use and how much do they cost?
  8. Just came across this: https://skyfiaudio.com/collections/speakers/products/klipsch-cornwall-vintage-speakers-in-oiled-walnut-1977-survivor-pair Its at a shop, so I figured it would be more than out in the wild, but that seems like a ludicrous price for these? Maybe I'm missing something?
  9. Back! https://portland.craigslist.org/clc/atq/d/gladstone-klipsch-kp-way-pa-speakers/7305314388.html
  10. Well it will sit for awhile and then someone can get a sweet deal!
  11. Does anybody have an info on how hard it is to change out the tweeters on these? And what those tweeters might cost?
  12. Yeah, there seems to be a time later at night, when a lot of the appliances and lights are off that the music just opens up and I have a hard time discerning if its the electronics or the tube warm up time. I've thought about unplugging everything except the fridge and dishwasher and listening to see what its like then, but I would def need my GF to not be home, cause she wouldn't like that.
  13. Okay, I'm music only with the sub, so thats helpful. Thanks!
  14. Wow, that's a long wait. I am former to the utility industry and they are years out in bringing new lines to people to upgrade their power, so I bet this is in that same vein. Also, I feel like people get crazy with this stuff and wonder if their $150k system is 150x better than mine. Maybe I need to listen to a HIGH end system, but I have a hard time believing that it's THAT much better.........
  15. Pics attached. I bought them in Portland, OR. Condition was really good. Couple scratches and just a teensy bit of the bichbplywood peeling on one back corner.
  16. As a data point I bought my LS1 for $1000. I would certainly call thay price an outlier though from the prices I have seen since purchasing them.
  17. An audiophile once told me that making sure your feetsies are nice an toasty allows you to get deeper into the music with intent and focus! They had a different pair of socks they used for listening to each different amp! 不不不不
  18. Yup! Dm me and I will give you my phone number and we can chat.
  19. So, I took some advice from another person that fixed their velodyne and I used some plumbers putty to reseal the woofer to the box in hopes of stopping any air leaks. It didn't get rid of ALL the popping noises, but if did get rid of most of them to where its very intermittent with regards to the popping. So, I may try to tighten it down some more or maybe even run some new beads of wood glue across the seams of the box on the interior to see if that helps too. So, yeah! Not dead yet! Which is great!

    Tubes

    I was given a box of tubes and it turns out that there is nothing I can use in the lot, so I offer them up to the community here! Free, you just pay shipping and I will send them to you. Attached is a spreadsheet of what I have and to keep it fair, please PM me what you want and we can work out shipping costs and details. Thanks! List of Vaccum Tubes.xlsx
  21. I'm also in Portland. If someone wants them and needs them housed lemme know. I thought about buying them, but I don't NEED any more speakers.......
  22. No affil https://portland.craigslist.org/clc/atq/d/gladstone-klipsch-kp-way-pa-speakers/7297999416.html
