  1. Thank you! I have some paint/wood refinishing/kitchen renovation ideas, but I loved the potential of it.
  2. Hey all, I'm buying a new house, and it's a very open house where I could imagine sound travel would be a real concern. I'm wondering if this big wood piece against the back half wall with about 8 inches of open space behind it does anything for acoustics, or if it's just some sort of art or design element. Strange but kind of cool thing to find in a house. It will stay either way, I'm just curious if there's any function to it.
  3. 4 + (3 x 2) = 10, CF-10s!
  4. I dig the Epic CF10s!
  5. I drove to the same area 7 hours from me for some CF4 V2s for $1500. I suppose that price is fair in comparison for the magical, mystical V1s of the one-step-down model.
  6. Rotel RX-1052 100 watts per channel at 8ohm. In near mint condition with no significant marks. Comes complete with remote and all original packaging including inner and outer boxes. I'm the original owner and I've had this since 2007. Not one issue with it, ever. I bought some different speakers last year and I want a little more power for them (CF-4s) so after all this time, I'm finally ready to explore some other options. Price: $400 I can take all the usual non-crypto digital payments (add a fee if there is a fee). Located in the Minneapolis, MN area and will ship at buyer's expense.
  7. I could also go for the 120w RA-1572 mk2. Probably comes down to what I can find on the used market because these things are expensive new! My 100w RX-1052 sounds great, but I'd like some updated features as well as the additional wattage.
  8. Hey all! What are some of your favorite integrated amplifiers/receivers to use with Epic CF4s? I'd like something that has Bluetooth and a nice quality DAC on board. Probably well over 100 watts, possibly up to 200 as I've heard these speakers like power to come alive. Thanks!
  9. I will be in a medium sized living room in a house with the CF-4s. I guess I was thinking I needed 200w, but even if I don't now the main appeal is packaging everything I need into one box with the bluetooth and digital inputs. It would be great to get rid of all the cables and pieces I have to assemble together externally. So thats why I was leaning more towards the newer Rotel stuff. I've read reviews that the newer stuff has been improved in sound as well, which makes sense given the higher prices compared to my mid-2000s era Rotel. But yeah I'm open to other brands with modern features too.
  10. Hey everyone! I've had my CF-4s for about a year now, and I love them. They are pictured living at my buddy's place, set up next to his gear since I've been in a small apartment the last year. But I had to jump at the chance to buy them, and in fact now I'm shopping for a house for them (okay, for me too). I have read mixed opinions as far as how many watts the CF-4s should be powered by, and currently I'm giving them 100w. I've been keeping an eye out for a used Rotel RB-1080 which is a 200w amp I could pair with it. But in my search, I came across Rotel's RA-1592, and RA-1592 Mkii. That unit presents an interesting proposition because I use an external DAC as well as external wireless casting device with my old-fashioned RX-1052, and the RA-1592 could not only upgrade my power to 200w, but could also eliminate the need to use any other external gadgets and gizmos, which would be great. Does anyone have any thoughts on the RA-1592/RA-1592 Mkii, or any other recommended units I may not know about that would also give me 200w, bluetooth, and a good DAC for digital inputs? Please keep in mind that the Rotel, at around $3k new and hopefully a bit less used, is already questionable for my budget so I'm not likely to go way over that price point. Like I said, shopping for a house right now so that's the priority for my dollars. Thanks!
  11. I picked up my CF-4s in February for $1500. They were pretty mint and version 2, as I'd expect for that price. From what I understand, version 1 is the best, with 2 being near as makes no difference as good, and 3 being notably not as good as 1 and 2. I think my $1500 was on the high side, but like I said pretty mint, good version, and I looked for months to find a pair in the color I wanted so I was ready to jump even at that price. Here in the Minneapolis metro there are some Oak CF-3s for $800 on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/302311454620549/
  12. Believe me I tried to think of a use for them, but I just don't need another set right now, and I'm currently unemployed - or wait, "just graduated a university-affiliated web development boot camp and am job hunting" sounds a lot better - so money's too tight for superfluous speaker purchases.
  13. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/302311454620549/ Looks like version 3 Epic CF-3s. I have the CF-4s and I keep thinking I want to grab these just because they are near me, but I really have no need for them.
