  1. Hi all, I have a pair of Synergy series F-30 Klipsh tower speakers, coupled with a Klipsh SW-112 (12" powered sub-woofer). They're all connected to my Onkyo TX-8050 Receiver. https://intl.onkyo-av.com/tx-8050 The speakers all sound great still, but the Onkyo's volume control knob is not working anymore, so we can only control the volume from the Onkyo remote. Also, sometimes the left channel disappears and I have to power-cycle the Onkyo to get it all to work again. We've had the Onkyo receiver, and Klipsch speakers almost 10 years now. (it's not the wiring, 'cause I double checked that and all is secure and tight). Anyway, I have a two-part questions below; 1./ Regarding my Klipsch (powered) subwoofer, I noticed even when everything is turned off, that the (powered) subwoofer still uses ~3.5 Watts from the wall.? Is this normal, or the fact that it is a "powered" subwoofer it will stay on waiting for a signal. ? 2./ any recommendations for a new'ish receiver.? - Marantz NR1200 (75W/ch@6ohms) - Dennon DRA-800H or 900H (100W/ch@8ohms) - ... ? The must have for us is that the receiver: -must have a built-in USB input dac, (for connecting flash-drive or 1-TB portable storage) so as to play all our mp3 and flac, wav, files, ... 96khz/24bit, and 192khz/24bit, and DSD, ... AND it must have the ability to play them in a random/shuffle format as well. Also, it must be able to play shuffle/random files controlled from the Remote and/or Receiver, and NOT need a TV connected to it. -must have subwoofer (pre-out). Having HDMI maybe a bonus feature, but we're not interested in having the TV on while listening to music, old-school I guess. I'm not interested in any 5.1/7.1/... avr surround sound systems, since all of our 5.1 audio files have been converted/mixed down to 2.1(Stereo). However, some friends have said that I could just get a good quality AVR Receiver, and just use it in Stereo mode, which is fine as long as it can deliver the power cleanly to my Klipsch's.
  2. Refurbished… Denon has, right now, the x4700 refurb for $1499, x3700 $999, x2700 $699. All refurbished. Onkyo has the tx-rz50 refurbished for $1119, tx-nr797 $699, tx-nr6100 $639, etc Pioneer has the vsx-lx505 for $1199, vsx-lx305 $999, vsx-lx504 $799, vsx-lx304 $639 They don't stay on the sites for long. PS: To me manufacturer refurbs are better than new. They have been throughly checked and fixed whatever it was before selling those returns.
  3. I've always wondered if there was a better wary to wire my subs. I've currently got 2 DIY Danley TH-SPUS (the ones with 2-8" drivers), that are rated at 400 watts continuous at 8 ohms. I've got the Crown XLS-2502 which is rated at 440 w at 8 ohms dual, but also 2400w 4 ohm bridged, and 1550 w 8 ohm bridged. Currently I have the sub out of my AVR to the MINI DSP, split and eq'ed with the DSP, then each channel on the Crown handling one of each sub. Would it make sense to bridge the amp, to wire the 2-8 ohms subs in parallel to provide a 4 ohm load allowing me to provide 2400 w to the subs? Does it work like this? 2nd part to the question, I know running the MINI DSP I should only be sending .775Vrms, but do have the sensitivity on the Crown switched to .775. If my Ashley Protea is capable of the full 1.4Vrms, would there be any benefit to switching?
  4. Hello, I have been liking my new RP-280FA so far for movies. However, ended up installing celling speakers for Atmos height channels and now the upfiring drivers are collecting dust. Have a crazy idea to hookup the upfiring drivers to the main ones with a cable. Would this hurt the speakers or my amplifier physically or the create a negative listening experience by causing delayed sound on the top drivers? OR would it augment the stereo sound with a more 3D like effect? PS: I have a true 100W per channel amplifier.
  5. I have a Klipsch 10SWi sounds and works perfectly. One question, when I power off my stereo the blue light on the wireless transmitter and the on back of the sub woofer stays on. Is this normal? Plus I have to manually switch the power off on the back of the sub woofer for the green light to go off. Any ideas on what settings I need to do. Thank you in advance.
  6. Hi Guys I am very much new to amplifiers and speakers of this level. I bought Denon X4500H and Klipsch RP 8000F + R 115 SW just this week. I am reading through a lot of stuff online about best settings to get the best out of the system. I agree that what I like is the best sound for me, but just to have some basics clear, I need some help from the community. I am using the whole system for music listening only. No movies or TV at all. I read about LFE, LPF etc and tried to play with setting the mains to Large/ Small LFE/LFE+Mains and LPF - 120Hz but I do not seem to feel any difference. I was expecting R 115SW to explode my room but its still very nominal. Could you please help me out with some basic settings. Thanks a lot. Vivek
  7. Lower price - $4000 Happy wife happy life.....Too much stuff and have to downsize. I didn't think I'd ever part with it but the day has come. Used, like new McIntosh MC275 VI (from Audio Classics). Have all original parts (including tubes). I am in Northern CA and would like local pickup but am willing to drive and/or ship if it makes sense. Currently has Gold Lion KT88 power tubes and Electro Harmonix pretubes. Asking $4000 Just noticed those ARE NOT scratches on the transformers just dust. I can send more detailed pics via text or email for interested parties.
  8. Little bit more along the lines of pro gear but still very useable in this world with some of the setups i've seen! 🙂 10x units available @ $400 each per unit starting price. Reasonable offers for larger qty purchase welcome. Amplifiers from previous large entertainment complex install. All functioning upon last power cycle. Some rack rash and use wear on units but otherwise fully functional. Refer to pictures for general idea. Local pickup preferred in 32808 or buyer pays for shipping. Can ship freight if large QTY is bought.

  9. Hello all, I have a Yamaha R-N303BL stereo receiver I'm using in a room, with the intention of using the B outputs for outdoor speakers. I also have a subwoofer (K100-SW) for that room that I'd like to join in on the fun. The receiver has no sub output (obviously, since it's stereo, not home theater), but it does have line-out, and I figured that would be fine with the LFE/Line-In on the sub (which does not have powered speaker inputs). However, I had not considered that line-out was volume-independent - so the sub volume remains the same regardless of selected volume on the receiver. D'oh! I have seen suggestions of using the B output on a line-level converter, but I plan to use the B outputs for outdoors. I would rather not swap out for a surround receiver for a room with only speakers just to tie in the sub, and I'd rather not swap out the subwoofer for one with L/R powered speaker inputs that then chain off to the L/R speakers, if possible. Would it be viable to connect a line-level converter to the A speaker posts in parallel with the L/R speakers, and use that to connect to the line-level input on the sub? I have seen some on Amazon that are described as being for older radios to hook into a new receiver or something like that, so I'm not sure they're designed to handle this type of scenario - I don't want to let out any of the magic smoke that makes electronics work! So, is there a viable way to run the line-level input sub off the receiver's speaker posts alongside the L/R speakers, or do I need to exchange the sub for one with L/R speaker inputs & outputs? Thanks for any suggestions!
  10. I'm using a H360 with Klipsch and I think it sounds amazing. Just what other people's opinions too Aleksander
  11. Howdy, I am interested in tweaking a pair of RF-63 Speakers and RC-64 for Fullest Stereo Sound. I am using them with a Denon AVR-3310 CI. When I use the center channel in a 5.1 setting(that is the only way the center channel will engage), I lose the dramatic effect of the stereo speakers. I want the fullness of the Direct Stereo setting while using the center channel. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you in advance.
  12. Item: Jeff Rowland Model 112 amplifier Price: $1,800 shipped (lower 48) SOLD Location: Franklin, PA 16323 Trades: Different amp, amp/preamp combo, integrated? More pics available. Only lets me upload one here due to file size restrictions. PM me. One of the finest quality components to ever grace my rack. This is an amp that looks as good as it sounds. Attention to detail has gone into every step of the design and build process. At 150 wpc at 8 ohms and 275 wpc at 4 ohms, it has the power to drive just about any speaker available. The sound is smooth and inviting, yet detailed and articulate. The amp is in excellent condition overall with just a few very minor rub marks on the aluminum chassis (hence the conservative 7/10 rating above). Detailed photos available to interested parties. Amp will ship in its original box and packaging. Owner's manual is included. Todd Warnke at SoundStage sums up the Model 112 here:"In all, the Rowland Model 112 is the definition of jewel-like mass. Everything about it is designed with careful thought, attention to detail, and with a music-lover's heart. The tonal response -- full, accurate, but tight and extended on bottom; mids that are detailed if just a whisper lean; highs that are extended, sweet, detailed and grain-free -- leads to hours of inviting, fatigue-free listening. The limitless power of the Model 112 allows listening to anything, from after-hours ambient to full-scale orchestra. Sonic cues and musical detail are ample, if not quite to the level of the super amps (and Rowland has several of those to offer you should you have the budget). And the Model 112 presents a stage that is wide, deep and stable. All this combines to create a slightly laid-back character that makes for an easy long-term partner.This is an amp that's exquisitely honed to do a difficult job with unflappable control. It never runs out of steam, it goes all the way to the bottom of the musical scale with as complete composure as it goes to the top. It digs deep into a recording and delivers the goods without edge or glare.

  13. UPDATE: I've moved to the Chicago area, Lombard, IL. Price drop to $1,800 plus shipping. Thanks! Time to sell some extra gear, and I'm starting with my Anthem Statement P2. No issues to report, only one small scratch on the side of the amp, as you can see in the photos. I have an original box, albeit not THE original box. I'd like to make this available locally first, but I would consider shipping at buyers expense. Local is 54701, which is about an hour and change east from Minneapolis. Asking $2000. http://www.anthemav.com/products-current/model=p2/page=specs
  14. Hi gang, I was going to set this amp up in my daughter's bedroom but she really doesn't have much interest in it so I am going to sell it instead. I would rather see it go to a new home than sit in a box.UPA-200 - Brand new never opened. I have opened the outside double box but never the inside box so it is still factory sealed. $300 shipped with insurance to the CONUS. I prefer Paypal gift but may be able to work with you.

  17. thought i would share some photos i captured of jonathan wood's loft setup. enjoy!
  18. I believe this was Super Deans thread. Couldnt find it. Anyhow who still indulges in music or even tv, movies, the bug you hid in your neighbors living room in 2 channel? The way music/noise was/?is meant to be? Sure movies have music...hifi,midfi or lowfi music is for 2 channels! Even if be in the new Klipsch Earhorns? Anybody? Anyone? Or just me, yeah i thought so...
