Here's a link to Jed's website. He's a standup guy and the design is AMAZING.

And here's a link to the LCR for sale on Emotivalounge

They are also posted on Parts Express Classifieds but their site is down for maintenance for the next hour.

DIY Audio is a force multiplier of exponential value.

Think about all of the R&D that you are cutting out of the picture, all the time and money spent on countless employees planning and revising every bit of material for both construction and even packaging to increase a company like Klipsch's bottom line. Think about all of the middle men who make money off of your purchase when you buy store bought speakers. Wholesalers, distributors, sales men, followed by the big box retailer.

Don't get me wrong, Klipsch makes an outstanding product. The bottom line is, a commercial design cant even begin to contend with quality DIY designs on a price point, capability or quality of components for that matter. With DIY, what you see is what you get. Jed's Clearwaves (he's the designer) are an exceptional design. Do a little research and you'll find out on your own. For the 4T mains and 4CC for sale in the above link you're talking about a $2k investment, I would put them up against most anything commercially available out to the $8k-10k range and perhaps even out there further. Don't even get me started on the limited capability of commercial subs when compared to DIY. UNPARALLELED

PM me if you want to know my own impressions with mine.

Beware though, DIY is a slippery slope. Once your "shown the light" its a never ending hobby.

emotiva.com/ampfaqs.html

1. Why do Emotiva amplifier power cords not have a ground?
A grounded power cord can create a 'ground loop' in your system, which creates noise. Our amps are specifically designed to prevent ground loops, and have multiple layers of grounding and shielding internally. They meet all CE regulations (worldwide safety regulations).


2. Should I use a power conditioner or surge protector with an Emotiva amplifier?
Our amplifiers have built in power conditioners and surge protection - over voltage, under voltage, surge and spike protection, as well as lightning arrestors. Every component is designed to allow for maximized performance of the amp.

If an external power conditioner is used, it could limit the peak current capabilities of the amp. This can cause clipping which can harm speakers, or cause internal damage to the amplifier itself


As for what ever Receiver you end up with, don't go overboard. I know, I know, some people are all about gear and "proper power conditioning." In my opinion high dollar line conditioning/surge suppression units are over rated. I myself have a whole home surge suppression system installed outside my home by the power company. They will replace anything that is ruined by a surge up to I believe $100k worth of damage. I guess I like to live dangerously. smile.gif
