What I Got Today!

Recommended Posts

Pretty happy with the speakers..................Now trying to get my amps / pre amp synced up...............................So far sounding better with no pre-amp just running a pair of Y cables off the dac  and then to my 2 amps (bass and uppers). Using J-River to adjust volume working nicely.

Had a bunch of recent additions lately, but not a lot of time to upload pics.  So if you guys dont mind I'm a gonna blow up this thread with some new coolness.  Some of this may be available soon on the garage sale thread- I've been picking up a lot of the cool gear available to me within a two hour or so drive to be able to check it out and share with you guys my fellow Klipschmaniacs.  So here goes to start a pair of Dynaco A25's restored(ish) sound incredible just ugly job under the grilles. oh yeah and i might have caught a pic of one of the two marantz 2238's i snagged recently.  Gonna be bringing them to my tech this week for a check-up and possible re-cap.

This next one is my new pride and joy (sorry guys this is a keeper).  My tech completely rebuilt the 200 watt power modules on this beast. (I know it puts out 160 per channel but they are in fact a "200 watt power module" so says my tech and he can explain it better than I).

Also harvested the first fruits from my garden and they are now becoming gravy. 'Maters, peppers and figs. Zesty.

 

And two sets of grandkids visiting. This is slowing down the Forte deployment, but the girls are providing entertainment.

Yes indeed. I pruned the tree aggressively last winter so there are not too many in the first fruiting. They are larger than last year, though. The second fruiting looks to be a bumper crop, if I can keep the birds offa them.

Sounds delicious. I'll try that when the second batch ripens. All out of the first. Sent the last of them north to Colorado when my granddaughters went home.

Unloaded today and now the fun begins. Finally got some 402's for those luscious 415 LF4 bins and 904 LF bins and deciding which ones to pair these with.

 A recent purchase, an Outlaw Audio LFM 1-EX for a little extra massage action on the couch, a sub on the other side as well.

A big fat happy grin. I had time on Friday to bring my Forte I speakers in from the garage and give them a listen.

(Back story: early last year my wife flew to Co. Springs to visit our daughters family. The Friday she was to fly home she went to an estate sale and saw some speakers with Klipsch badges ((We don't need no stinking badges)). She took pix of the front and back, texted them to me and then called. They were listed at $450. My first response was Buy! Buy! Buy! From the low resolution photos, they looked to be finished in black.

    After the excitement wore off I realized that A. I had no way to geT them to Az, and B. I had nowhere in the house to fit them, I told my wife to let them be. She tolerating my audio mania said " How about we send Nora back on Sunday? If they are still there they will be half price. We can then worry about getting them to Az." They were still there on Sunday. A wire transfer later they were mine, albeit in my daughters closet.

    Fast forward to three weeks ago. My wife, being intolerant of the heat and having no work (as a nurse she does pre-anesthesia screening at a local hospital. Due to Covid cancellation of all elective surgeries, she gets no hours) got bored and decided to go to Co. My daughter refused to receive her if she flew. (Our son in law has a condition which makes him very susceptible to respiratory illness. Covid would kill him) So my wife drove. Which meant she brought the speakers back. (Along with the grand kids. Grand Slam!)

    The grandkids were a joy, helping me pick figs, maters and 🌶, and also having all sorts of abventures. The speakers ended up being Forte I, finished with walnut veneer. Bonus! End of backstory)

    Any way, I brought them in and hooked them up. I played an assortment of favorites and was quite impressed. They are pictured in their initial placement, mixed between my la Saclas and Anarchy subwoofers. I listened without the subs. They are very impressive.  Only drawback is that it takes almost a full watt of power to give the volume that the la Scala get at just above .33 watts. But they will thump! Me Gusta! Also shown is the music sampled so far. Up next are the Brandenburg Concertos, Berliner Philharmoniker, Herbert von Karajan conducting. His interpretation is a bit staid and formal, but the recording is well done.
