Klipsch Forte IV ... what amp ?
Saki70, I had two Prima Luna preamps - a Prologue and then traded up to the Dialogue Premium. Ended up deciding that they were just not lively enough in my system with the Thiels and sold the Dialogue. The interesting thing is that I was in an a... 
Klipsch Forte IV ... what amp ?
Hi All, I bought a pair of Forte IV's about two weeks ago. My system is PS Audio Memory player, EVO B4B DAC, Don Sachs DS2 and CJ 17LS2 preamps. My other speakers are Thiel CS5i's so I have a McCormack DNA-500 on hand. The Forte's were very ha...

Thank you!  
Tekton versus Klipsch
Okay everybody, Not sure anyone cares but I do :)!  I pulled the trigger on a pair of Forte iv's. This was after extensive listening (3 or 4 extended sessions with music I know) to the Fortes and Cornwall iv's, both with Mcintosh electronics. Fo... 
What do the different tube amp types mean?
Hi All, Right now I an listening to Jimmy Rogers "Blue Bird" and am rocking!  I recently pulled the trigger on a pair of Klipsch Forte iv speakers (8 ohm and 99dbl efficient) in order to hear what more efficient speakers can sound like. This is ... 
Spatial X5 speakers
Hi All, Interesting thread!  Has anyone heard both the M3 Sapphire and X5 Premium? Can you please explain how they sound different? Thanks, Dsper

@unsound If you don't expect live volume levels, it might work. I was think thinking the same thing as this is not intended to be a full range, serious listening system.  @miyu8 Your experience would indicate that 60 wpc of my CJ amp might ...

@unsound and jazzman7 Appears that I need to find a more efficient speaker or else move on from the CJ amp. Maybe I need to give Fritz Speakers a call and see if he still builds floor standers. Or, I could consider Spendors like in the A serie...

@unsound ...if you would consider other amplification... You make a very valid point. The other part of this for me is the desire to try a tube amp setup. For example the CS.5 is a 4 ohm speaker that is supposed to be able to run on 30 wpc per t... 
Primaluna?
@brylandgoodman Wondering if people generally replace a single bad tube or if people are replacing all tubes of that type when there’s a failure. Not sure if anyone addressed this question in your post as the thread kind of got into a debate. I... 
DAC Choices - $5,000 to $7,000
Hi All, I was so impressed with my used Mystique DAC that I ordered a new EVO 4B4, which I received in mid-November; so I have been using it for about two months. It took a while to break in and, at first, I thought I might have made a mistake. ...

@unsound  Ah, it all makes so much more sense... The speakers could be a maximum of 30 inches into the room measured from the front of the speaker. They would be positioned on the short wall anywhere from five to eight feet apart. The listeni...

@unsound Is this for an alternate system? Yes, it is. My wife inherited a property from her uncle so I need to stay within the boundaries of her decorating preferences. The room is 15 X 20 that WILL NOT have room treatments other than an area ...

@jafant and unsound B&W is not on my high efficient speaker list. I have heard various of their floor  standers and just do not like the treble. I think the 805's require like 50 watts minimum and my goal is something  where 50 watts would b...
