  1. I got a pair of Sixes recently. For the most part, they work well. Bluetooth and USB work fine with my laptop, phono is fine with my turntable. (Haven't checked aux yet, but will at some point) The problem I run into is with the digital output, i.e. the optical cable. It connects to my TV directly (a Samsung UN40RU7100F). For stuff on the TV itself, I get no sound whatsoever. When I use my consoles (a Nintendo Switch and Wii U), it plays...okay. But if I'm in a menu or something that doesn't have, say, music (like the Switch UI menu), the signal suddenly drops and there is no sound. It returns to normal when sound is expected. Has anyone else had this issue? Is it possible it's the speakers or the optical cable? Want to rule those out before assuming it's the TV.
  2. Hi! I'm a happy new owner of a pair of Sixes. Love the sound and the style but I'm a bit disappointed by a constant noise remaining, no matter the source is used. This white noise is easy to ear with no music playing or with music played at low volume (I use speaker on my working desk, so I'm around 1m far from speakers) Of course, it's covered by music when played at mid/high volume. Here are the symptoms : White noise constantly present no matter the source (BT, Aux, USB, Phono, Digital) no matter if something is connected to the source or not Same noise volume, no matter the setting of the volume button. --> This make me say that speaker creates the noise by themselves, not by the source. What I tried : Remove all other devices plugged on electric outlet (from all electric outlet of the same circuit breaker) Try to plug speakers on an other eletric outlet network Use a power supply cord with and without ground Do you think this is normal or it might be a defect? My local reseller say it's normal for active speakers to have this kind of noise but my 20 years old entry range student stereo player do not have any noise... (But it's not active speaker tho...) I'm really happy with those sixes when I ear them loud, but disappointed when I ear them slow while I'm working... Additional question to Sixes owners : When you turn source button in clockwise direction, how is the led moving? Mine is going top to down which I don't find logical. Clockwise : Digital --> Phono --> USB --> Aux --> BT --> block on BT Counterclockwise : BT --> Aux --> USB --> Phono --> Digital --> block on digital. Perhaps I have a bad wiring of my speakers which could cause this noise? Thanks in advance for your help! Sylvain edit: seems I didn't post in the correct section sorry about that!
  3. I just purchased the three and was excited about their play-fi option to bring in multiple devices because I’m planning on building a bookshelf system in my kitchen that I want to link to it in another room. I figured I’d just get the power gate as an amp but the reviews are horrible. Then I thought I’d get the gate and hook it up to a regular amp. Also horrible reviews. Finally I figured I’d just get the sixes, but they are Bluetooth only? Why would the “one” be Bluetooth only, the three have WiFi and Bluetooth, then “the sixes” be back to just Bluetooth?! im thinking about literally Hooking up a Bluesound or sonos attachment to my “three” and just skipping the “play-fi” thing altogether. has anyone been successful with multiroom play-fi using klipsch brand products?
  4. Hello, people! I’m a newly proud owner of The Sixes. After reading a zillion reviews, I opted to buy the Sixes. Never had the chance to hear them live before buying them. The question is that when listening via Bluetooth connection, the sound is sooooo low!!! I use Spotify and I’ve checked my sound settings (it all seems ok). I know that Bluetooth transmission lacks some quality and that Spotify itself is not lossless, but... OK, maybe I should try Tidal, but as I am a +4 year Spotify customer... I have connected an old Sony SACD player to the Sixes, using the optical cable, and the difference is HUGE!!!!! Here the sound is powerful and crispy! Can anyone please help me how to enhance Bluetooth sound? Am I doing anything wrong? (My main option is to use Spotify, not CDs nor vinyl) Thanks in advance to all of you! Cheers, Ernesto.
  5. Hi all, Can anyone please tell me the best option to choose for playing FLAC files on "The Sixes"? Which bitrate and sampling rate should I use when my "The Sixes" is connected to my laptop (with no separate soundcard, just core i3-8gen) via USB AUDIO (SPDIF interface)? Thanks all
  6. Around 1500 today I received a delivery notification from FedEx that my speakers had finally arrived. I was pretty deep in a gearbox inspection at a customer and had it all torn apart. Lucky me, during the NDT, I found three bad gears with cracked teeth. Sweet! No need to put it back together. Send info back to the shop, clean the area, and dash home. My wife sent me a text saying that my "stupid speakers were in my office". I get home, shower up, start a pot of chili, and then head upstairs to get everything swapped out. I tell ya, these are some pretty speakers! You look at the spec sheet dimensions and really don't realize that these are fairly sizable for their class. I am totally blown away. I've been through some of my favorites (In The Light, Tuesday's Gone, Simple Man, Bohemian Rhapsody, the Tron:Legacy soundtrack, all kinds of John Williams soundtrack pieces, Boston, Lamb Of God, Suicide Silence etc...) and so many songs are like listening to them for the first time. Instruments and sounds that I haven't noticed before. Several times I had to make sure I wasn't playing remixes because everything just sounded different. When I first started listening, I had a thought- Hmm, just a tad bit more bass. Went over to the sub to up the gain just a ***, and realized that the status light was out. WHAT?! In my rush to start listening, I forgot to move over the LFE cable from my old receiver. Ha! It kinda made me laugh. The speaker's bass output was just a hair under what I wanted it, and the sub wasn't even running. I enjoy good strong bass, and The Sixes nearly come through on their own. Yanked the screens grilles off...was NOT expecting that! They dampen the horns considerably. I was able to convince the wife to have a listen. Played a few of her favorite songs, and unprompted, she stated the same as my thoughts above. She was convinced that she was listening to covers of her favorites. It's good to know she "gets it"! I would have been very happy with The Sixes if I had paid the retail $800. Paying $479 through a NewEgg Flash deal from Worldwide? I don't think I've ever been more satisfied with a purchase. Not that I have a recent history of better quality audio, but if anyone has been on the shelf(lol) about these, I highly suggest them. You'll even with the ol' lady's OK.
  7. I know a handful of folks (myself included) that have been drooling over the vintage look of the Distressed Oak and off-white Lambswool grill version of the new Forte IIIs, but aren't in the market for that size (or priced) speaker. Given the new vintage trend down into the smaller ranges, I think it would be great to have The Sixes available with that same styling - people would go nuts over it. I mean, those Forte's are about the only speakers my wife has ever looked at with a reaction other than "I don't want that visible in my house." I didn't see this style for the Sixes on the website, so I'm assuming that finish is not available today?
