What I Got Today!

Congrats on the 730 Bruce. 

 

Thanks!

 

I already had a 630 I got from Neil a few years ago. My younger son got it when he was in school at Valparaiso U. (reminds me how long it's been since he has graduated and married). The one I just pulled out I bought from another forum member. It needs caps replaced and new lights. It arrived wrapped in a bath towel and surrounded with styrofoam peanuts. Just the opposite with the one from Neil. It came packed well with stiff foam board...

 

I love the 730, with two aux inputs, being able to separate the pre and power sections, etc.

Very cool you furnished your son with good gear while at school.

Both my sons (11 and 4) have decent stereo set ups in their rooms. Panasonic SA-XR57s with KSB 2.1 in one and KSB 3.1 in the other. Plenty of room for upgrading if they want.

Yeah a lot of options considering it's 40+ years old.

No bluetooth or hdmi... 🙄

 

But I don't need that. And the tube pre amd amps I intend to keep. They have actually been pretty low maintenance.

I upgraded my Epic system to the RF-7iii system and thought I would share a few photos.  The front two and rear two mains are RF-7iii’s, the center is an RC-64iii, 502s surrounds, 500sa Atmos speakers and two PB-16 ultra’s for bass management.  Powered by a Denon 8500 receiver.

Here is a photo with the flash on - should help.  I have a Sony VPL-VW1100ES projector and a Stewart G3 110” screen.

They're gorgeous.   Wish I had a camera to do them justice.

Interested in a more beastly driver for the enclosure if it makes sense.   If it does not, so be it.   I figure it wouldn't cost much if it made sense to do so.   

 

Most Klipsch Heritage speakers, and some in the Pro Theater line, are designed around and voiced for the driver(s) they come with.  Several forum members have found that installing more expensive drivers often makes them sound worse, not better.  Paul Klipsch was very cognizant of both ends of speaker manufacturing:  great sound, and affordable construction costs.  He chose drivers that sounded good, sounded consistent, and were easy to obtain in bulk quantities.  They may not have been the best on the market at any given time, but in coordination with the cabinet and horn design, they produced the sound that he was after.  For another example of his efficient and economical thinking, the Heresys, La Scalas, and Klipschorns, were partly designed to have the minimum amount of waste material after the panels were cut from a 4’x8’ sheet of plywood.

 

The only popular woofer upgrade that I’m aware of on this forum is the cast frame woofers from Bob Crites.  I’m sure some other members will have opinions and advice for you, so see what shows up, and in the meantime, enjoy your fine gear.

Still MAHL but followed by Machined Walnut or Red Oak. You can say MAHL but not MWHL or MROHL so it is what it is. Probebly will change it to MHL before I get a web site going since MAHL is pretty specific.

I have to make a correction... In fact I've lost track... I got two of the H/K models and my older son purchased one. So there were two 430s and a 630 here. The 630 was passed on to a friend in Atlanta whose receiver blew up ina power surve and one of the 430s went to my younger son. Not sure which one went to him, but the one I kept here certainly has needed work for a long time. Whatever the case, just trying to pay it fprward again. The 430 here will now get worked on and passed on.

 

Again, thanks to Neil... 👍

Yes, do like Klipsch does with its finishes.  MHLA, MHLW, MHLO etc.
