  1. I just need to stay out of thrift stores. LOL! I just dragged these home. Klipsch Quintet. Only 2 of them but that is all I need. Especially for $2 the pair! Now do I go with the ProMedias or these?
  2. I just brought them home. I will get them set up and show off the correct mounting with Hofy's Duct Tape Mounting System.
  3. I'm back!! Anyone miss me? I sold the famous duct tape ProMedias back in 2014. Fast forward to the other day. Found a pair of the satellite speakers for a the ProMedia at Goodwill. For $2.99 they just had to come home. I have already removed the volume pod. I think I will be setting these up on my small desk for the computer. No sub, but I will put together one of my small class D amps. Gotta be better than the sound bar I am using right now.
  4. And they are gone. Sold on eBay for $159.99.
  5. $79.00 same payment and shipping as in first post. Anyone?
  6. YES THE ONES FROM THE FAMOUS THREAD. https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/15-hofys-duct-tape-mounting-system-patent-pending/ I JUST DO NOT HAVE THE ROOM FOR THEM ANY MORE. I HAVE THE ORIGINAL PAPERWORK THAT WILL BE INCLUDED. THESE WILL ALSO SHIP IN THE ORIGINAL SHIPPING CARTON. NO DUCT TAPE WAS EVER ACTUALLY APPLIED TO THESE SPEAKERS. I DOUBLE FACED IT AND USED JUST ENOUGH TENSION TO HOLD EVERYTHING IN PLACE. THESE SPEAKERS STILL WORK AND SOUND GREAT. THE ONLY FLAWS ARE THE FACT THAT THE VOLUME CONTROL HAS THE STATIC THESE SPEAKERS ARE KNOWN FOR AND THE SUB HAS A SMALL NICK IN THE VINYL ON ONE EDGE. (SEE PHOTO). COMPUTER, DUCT TAPE, AND MOBILE FRAME NOT INCLUDED. $99.00 PAYPAL GIFT PLUS SHIPPING. (32 POUNDS FROM ZIPCODE 53952)
  7. Yes. As you can see, even if I found room for the sats, there is no room for the sub.
  8. Well, here we are. 14 years. Longer than I ever thought I would have these speakers. They still work great, even the static in the volume control that these are infamous for. However, I have downsized and there just isnt room for these babies anymore. Look for them on that eAuction site in a few days.
  9. 12 long years and my faithful ProMedias are still cranking and still held in place with duct tape!
  10. I actually did start over from scratch in 2003. 1) How would you identify your allowable budget versus time? Time is irrelevant, it is the journey that makes it worth it to me. Budget, I never let stereo funds take away from the essentials. 2) Would you buy all used, all new, or a mix (including source material, audio input devices, amplifiers/processors, speakers including subs if any, cables, room treatment devices, architectural updates)? What would you buy used and what new? Used where ever possible. I picked up my KM-6 speakers (KG5.5) on ebay for $300-400. They where like new. My Marantz 2230 also off ebay last year for $129, completely rebuilt. Pioneer PD-M453 CD player new in the box for $10 at Goodwill. 3) What would you be trying to achieve - i.e., as close to a realistic performance as you could afford, or "something that sounds good to play stuff that you used to listen to when you were young". Probably the latter, it is about enjoying the music, so what ever sounds good. 4) How much would you be willing to pay for visual attractiveness instead of performance (% cost of the component)? This includes tubes and non-audio devices. Not much, function over form first. If it looks good too, bonus. 5) How much would you buy-and-sell in order to achieve your ideal system goal(s)? Would you try to minimize this? Would you buy without first hearing the equipment? What components would that be? I have always sold the old to get new. This has always been a rule of mine. I usually dont listen first anymore but I do massive amounts of research so I know what I should be getting. 6) How would you go about listening to the equipment before buying? If possible listen to the actual piece from the seller. If not there then locate someone near by that has the same model and listen to theirs if possible.
  11. Thanks for the input, everyone! I guess a pull out shelf it is then. I will be building a cabinet myself so the shelf will be heavy duty. I have an old issue of Woodcraft with plans for this cabinet. Mine will be oak without doors.
  12. Bill, that is all I was able to come up with too. I worry about the stability of the pull out shelf and vibration dampening.
  13. I am looking for a cabinet or ideas to build one that is similar to what I have now (pictured below). I need something that will take a turntable. I need to be able to place the widescreen on top of the cabinet so placing the TT there is out. I also do not want to wall mount anything (TV or TT). Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
  14. Here are my finds at Goodwill today. Miles Davis-Kind of Blue at 50 2 disc set $2.49 Miles Davis-The Complete Birth of the Cool $2.49 The Beatles-Revolver 2009 remaster $2.49 Queens of the Stone Age-Song For The Deaf $2.49 Denon DCD-820 in working order $4.99
