Pairing RC-64iii with RF-7ii

Recommended Posts

Can you pair the RC-64iii with the rf-7ii’s?

It's possible.  Will not have the exact sound as the RF-7 II as it should be slightly more laid back and a bit more refined on the top end.

Why would you want to add a mis-matched center.  Should be able to pick up the matching center at a better price.

Unless he wants to upgrade his towers to the RF7llls someday.

I am a advocate of "get the best center speaker you can." 

 

Unless playback is in Mono or All Speakers Stereo, the Fronts and Center playback different content.

 

Except for you @Youthman.  Your matched L/R/C La Scala's are awesome!  :emotion-21:  :D

Auto EQ on a good avr should match the sound .  If not, get a better avr, lol.

A receiver is not going to alter a speaker's timbre', seriously.

Ceptorman, and wvu80 are right on. Someday I will upgrade to the RF-7/3’s. I called a Klipsch Rep and he said they’d sound great with the RF-7/2’s, or at least be the next closest thing to the RF-64/2’s. He said the new 64/3 center channel sounds better than the 64/2.  I’m with wvu80, and want to get the best center channel I can.  And right now the 64/3 is the best center channel Klipsch makes for HT.

There is nothing better than asking the right question at the right time.  Ask your question to @Youthman about how the RC-64 III sounds.  He seems to be up on ALL the latest stuff.  B)

Have you ever had an RC-64 before?  Did you have one with the RF-83's?

 

Thanks to Klipsch Inc and your recent  Youtube speaker evals you are in a unique position to answer a LOT of questions I see a many of potential Klipsch buyers asking.

That is exactly why I reached out to Klipsch back in November about reviewing the RF-7 III since everyone was asking how different were they from the RF-7 or the RF-7 II.  I own the RF-7 and RF-7 II and Klipsch thought it was a great idea so they sent me a pair to review.  After moving them into the theater room, I realized reviewing the RF-7 III for home theater without the matching center would be weird so they graciously sent me RC-64 III to review as well.  My goal is to provide as much info as I can on them during the time that I have them.

Youth, let me know what you think about the 64iii. After I talked to the Klipsch rep, and I noticed u had ur son pair the 64ii with his original RF-7’s. I thought it may not sound bad to have the 64iii paired with my 7ii’s. It’d be awesome if you could demo that setup (7ii’s & 64iii) for a song or two, or for an action scene or two. That’d be awesome. Let me know. Appreciate it. 😎👍🏼

Over here in Europe its quite hard to find the RC-64III yet, and the RC-64II costs about 999-1200euros new - when you can find them. I was hoping the mk3 would lower the price on the mk2s but so far its not the case :(

@dubsIf you want to get someone's attention, type the @ sign and start to type their name.  Then click on their name from the drop down menu, @Youthman.  It will send them an alert the next time they sign in.

 

If you quote their post and reply to them it also sends an alert.

wvu80 is correct, tagging someone in a post is the best way to alert someone you are directing a question to them.  

 

My guess is the RC-64 III will sound just a tad more relaxed and smoother than the RF-7 II but I wouldn’t think it would sound bad necessarily.  

 

If you are eventually wanting to get the matching RF-7 III, Go for it.  If you are planning on keeping the RF-7 II, try and find the matching (both visually and sonically) the RC-64 II.

@wvu80 good lookin out. I’m on the fence with what I should do with my 7/2’s. I think I will eventually (5-10 years) get then RF-7/3’s I don’t think that the 64/3 will sound bad with the 7/2’s, as stated in earlier posts on this thread, they don’t all process the same material(unless in 7ch stereo). So to pinpoint the differences will be difficult to naked ear. I will get the 64/3 and exchange for 64/2 if it’s that bad.

dubs I have the same set up RC 64iii and R7ii, sounds great together, it's like beauty and the beast rc-64iii is beautiful sounding

and the rf-7ii is a tamed beast of a speaker until you unleash it on your HT lol.

 

Good luck

Thanks @rodsr2274 have you noticed any “mismatched” tone/sound quality? I would imagine it should be fine. Some guys say it will not be the same as RF-7II’s. Almost swaying back to saving money and getting the matching RC-64II.
