Yes, Sir....I just received a pair of Forte III speakers last week and have been listening to the system all weekend. Soooo nice....
What sources and cables are you using? I’ve been using the matching CD player with the USB (Mac) and Optical (AirPort Express) DAC. All the cable is Luxman, but I’m trying some other options, just to play.
I have the turntable, but I’m waiting for a cartridge. Just enjoying digital sources for now.
The Forte III is awesome, with lots of dynamics and weight. The Luxman SQ-N150 smooths out the Forte III and gives it a warmer character. I am still going to try some different speaker designs, but the Forte has been one of my favorite speakers since the mid-80s, when it was introduced. Mr. Klipsch’s and Mr. Gillum’s work has held up well with this design. It’s good to have the Forte back in my life. Highly recommended!
Thanks for the reply and keep me updated!
I've tried a variety of speaker cables with my Forte III's and honestly they all sound good. I've used the following speaker cables:
Verastarr Grand Illusion Bi-wired
Cerious Technologies Graphene
Cerious Technologies Matrix
Cardas Clear Cygnus
Duelund tinned-copper in cotton oil-impregnated Bi-wired
I’ve been enjoying the Luxman system, but it’s one of four systems, and I just don’t listen to it as much as the others. I really want to play with tubes more and enjoyed the Decware Zen that I had (sold it to a friend).
Do any of you tube rollers have some recommendations as to what I should try next? The Decware and Luxman models are the only tube amps I’ve lived with. I need help with diving deeper into the tube world.
