I have a Yamaha amp that is pretty old. A Yamaha tape deck that is from the early '80s (expensive as hell then, DBX noise reduction...), Yamaha CD changer that isn't as old as the amp, and a pair of Heresys...

Can you even get the old style Klipsch speakers these days?


I've heard great reviews about those speakers. I was very close to buying a pair but didn't. One of these days i'll get my hands on a pair.


I have Klipsch Quintet surround speakers, and they rock.

You oughta check this deal out - it's a STEAL, $467 off, NEW -

And I love JBLs too - I have a JBL surround system as my backup and my first REAL speakers were L88s which I bought in '75 and then converted to L100s, which are CLASSICS - by adding the mid-range myself. I still have 'em.

Spacemonkey how is your sound stage with the speakers so close?


I can move the left speaker further left when playing music, it is where it is in the picture so
the cleaning lady can get through the doorway to clean. The room is long and narrow with a stone floor covered with a rug. It is wider in the middle than the ends.

The sound is good throughout the room. the sweet spot is about 8 feet in front of the rack. You can correct for the room as well as the source with a graphic EQ.

or I just use the Sennheiser headphones. especially at night.
My neighbor gets up early.

I've got an ADC Sound Shaper! I successfully EQ'd my recordings pre-recording, but the problem with that lies with the fact that if you then play back the tape using a different stereo with different speakers in a room with different acoustics, you might not like what you hear. I found that out pretty quick, and stopped doing that.



I would make tapes of LP records for the car, and Eq them for that environment.
You can see a big case of tapes next to the right speaker in the picture.

No doubt. Those suckers are heavy. I planned on building a home theater using them and a tube amps. One more thing I planned to do, and didn't.
