I just put Machina Dynamica Springs....
First, I would like to say, this is a very disappointing thread to read......surprisingly so, that the bickering and name calling...... over people, and products, to enhance our listening experience, at home. I am actually surprised it has not bee... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
wym2, meant no harm in what I said....it is all good....Tim Stinson, is " the man ", behind Luminous........ 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
I understand the benefits of a passive unit using autoformers, such as the Townsend, but to my ears, I prefer my Luminous Audio unit. I find autoformers " soften " the leading edge of the musicianship, and I want to say, this is my personal take, ... 
Volti Razz Loudspeakers
Whether the Razz is better than the CW IV, which is questionable, I do agree, that Greg Roberts is a master. So was PWK, whose original Heritage designs were adapted by Greg ( the Lascala, in particular ). What I will say, is that once a person li... 
If I just use a DAC, do I need a Pre-amp?
Subject = Ad Nauseam........My Luminous Audio Axiom, Walker mod, 3 in, 2 out, with remote, is just what the doctor ordered. I do not hear it, in my signal chain. The chassis does not resonate, the connectors and wires are top notch, the switch and... 
Tube Preamp with Solid State Amp?
Honestly, it is wonderful, when you can find the combo, that is right for you. I have gone passive ( Luminous Audio Axiom Walker unit ), and enjoy my dac and tuner feeding my ss power amps directly, driving my modified Klipsch Lascalas. I do not w... 
Your Pick Between These Two...
If you go the Klipsch route, the Cornwall IV would be my recommendation, as a significant upgrade over the IIIs, which I think, mijostyn might have meant. 
To horn or not to horn
@isochronism, I always had my own listening room, so the acceptance factor of a wife / live in gf, was never an issue. @tomic601 , you must think I have lost my hearing. I have always been careful ( might seem contradictory ), and although, my lis... 
To horn or not to horn
@johnk, 1st, I am a novice, with horns, compared to you. Now, with that out of the way..........As much as I enjoy large horns ( as my Klipsch Pro example above ), I need to disagree on the fact, that many of them, for me, do not work in a smaller... 
If you listen to anything other than Classic Jazz, don't read this.
First, and foremost, ime, do you have your RX5’s, with the side firing woofers, facing in, or out ? Try it both ways, if you haven’t, as one way will sound better to you. Play with their placement from the rear wall, as well. Speakers do not know ... 
To horn or not to horn
Tomic.....All good my friend, and you enjoy as well !    
To horn or not to horn
Jet88, enjoy the CW IVs. If you are interested, some simple modifications that I have been doing for years on Klipsch Heritage models, can be seen on YouTube, by " The Boston Audiophile ". He shows you, on his CW IVs. Enjoy ! 
To horn or not to horn
" Throw ". Some listeners do not get it, unfortunately. Most of the larger horn speakers ( google Klipsch Pro; a grand scale example : Klipsch KPT-CINEMA GRANDEUR ), would require an extremely large room, and ime, for sure, a great distance, betwe...
