Hi All, I'm very impressed with the knowledge kicking around on this forum and i'm hoping to dig into some of it. Just before I do, i'm a very new 'wannabe' audiophile who is interested in the Klipsch heritage range to play vinyl LP's and DJ vinyl with. My love affair with Klipsch is due to a certain party in Hackney, London where Antal played vinyl on a system of vintage K horns (or modified La Scala's i'm not 100%) which absolutely blew mind. Brilliant corners is another good example in London who are actually the people who run the party's at Giant Steps. Anyway, i'm looking for info on how best to match an amp for my personal application above and potentially Forte iii. And if i'm wasting your time on here, my apologies and please kindly point me in the direction of the appropriate forum if known. I run an E&S DJR 400 (analog rotary DJ mixer) with Technics 1210 turntables currently with a set of powered Adam monitors. However, I'm looking to get a pair of Forte iii with an appropriate (hopefully low cost) Amp to match to my application. I'm choosing the Forte iii as they sit in a small footprint, lower cost than the better looking La Scala's and are great at listening at low volumes but can also start a party when i want to DJ at home. They won't be traveling and i'm not really interested in the pro range because I prefer the look of the heritage. But should i be? There have been a few topics along the lines my questioning however, i haven't managed to completely find the answers I'm looking for. So here goes: 1. Most importantly: Klipsch heritage are expensive to me. Do I need to run a P.A Amp or any other gear to protect the speakers? I'm concerned i'm distorting EQ's with the the DJ mixer and dropping a needle here and there and if this will damage a pair of Klipsch heritage speakers. If i do need a PA amp, would something like this still sound great but protect the speakers?

If not PA, can i use an a normal (sorry!) integrated amp? I'm interested in keeping it very low spec but channeling in to that sound potential a Klipsch heritage speaker has. I'm not interested in tone controls, a DAC or Bluetooth connection or a streaming receiver ect. Just a pure analog amp that will sound great at low cost! Here is an example: Onkyo 9110: https://www.onkyousa.com/product/a-9110/ 2. Could i potentially use a tube amp? I've read these sound best with Klipsch heritage for that warm true sound. But can i DJ with it? Apparently these are great but way over my budget. Prema Luna Evo 400 https://www.primaluna-usa.com/primaluna-evo-400-tube-integrated Just a few last things, i'd prefer an amp that i could switch voltage from 110v to 240V when i move home. I can take XLR's out of my mixer so would prefer that a AMP had those as input options. Thanks for reading and any info you can give me will help! Cheers, Matt

Seeking advice for converting HDMI (X-Box) output to RCA (Analog) audio input for home theater. I'm using a Yamaha RX-V861 AV Receiver but would like to use my older equipment to power my La Scala's (Harman Kardon 430 or Dynaco Mark III's) for better sound. My video can accept any input. Or suggestions on a better sounding amplifier that has HDMI input. I'm new to the forum. Thanks!
How do I bring my 1980's vintage equipment into the 21st century? Finally the kids are gone....I've been a responsible adult. I've driven the minivan, paid taxes, changed diapers, painted the picket fence and mowed the lawn. I've listened to my wife tell me she wants me to get rid of my La Scala's and my guitars and such for twenty years now, but somehow still have everything. Now it's time to listen to the music again. My problem is everything is so different now...Does anyone actually own music anymore? How do I get the digital music into my analog amp? Would love to use blue tooth but my receiver doesn't support it....I'm also suspicious about how the sound will be affected. How do I connect to streaming services like Amazon or I tunes? Whats the best thing to do?
