For a 2.1 rig, I would recommend something with bass management. My go-to two channel solution are the slim line Marantz AVRs: effective bass management, pre outs for L and R to accommodate external amps (probably never need more power, but you can, as well as having the option to throw a tube amp in the mix).
Sounds like those prayers were answered. I've lost my parents and a daughter, amongst others. But my prayers were of gratitude for the manner of their crossing the bar in peace. May we all have that blessing since that is the one journey we will all make.
Those look to be in really good shape. The price is right and with the upgrades I think they go from "fair price to both" to "deal." They are plug and play, highly desirable and they don't come on the market all that often.
I think they haven't gone yet due to not many forum members who live close and need more speakers. I assure you, we all know you're offering a more than fair deal.
That top and bottom of each stackable will have 1/2" plywood that is 1" from the edge of the 4 uprights. I am planning on inserting a 1/2"x1/2". Strip of wood in the gap, and this will keep the different layers aligned. We will see how hard it is to keep these aligned. I might have to make a jig from what I have done so far to make sure everything will line up repeatedly.
New to Klipsch and new to the forum, too. First pair of serious speakers were Altec Lansing Model 19s. After 20 years moved to B&O due to space requirements. Got the Heresy IIIs this past weekend and am head over heels about them.
You're new here. You don't know the half of the incredible deals that Mr. Youthman finds. And he seems to come up with these things over and over. He has more luck finding deals than all the rest of us put together.
Nowdays if someone on this forum finds a pair of Klipshorns for a hundred bucks and upon pickup the owner insists we take all his tube amps as well, we don't refer to that as a "deal"
It's a "Youthman Deal."
IMHO......you're missing the big picture with this product's focus. The audio industry is facing a significant challenge - i.e. how to develop audio lovers given the current generation and future generations where folks are not interested in sitting in a quiet space and relaxing with an immersive audio experience. You either keep on doing what you've been doing and last until the last baby boomer is dead - OR - you can develop a product(s) that is simple, easily to use, non-intimidating yet makes the end user go "OMG! Is that what it's suppose to sound like?" And once you have that fish on the line, you can slowly introduce them to the world of HiFi.
