Been awhile since I've posted but have done some upgrades. I've long been an admirer of Klipsch and find their speakers hard to beat come movie night. I'll post some pics once I figure out how.

X4000? Should be no problem & with an External Amp, you can run another pair of Heresy for Heights OR Wides.

YES X4000. What external Amp would you use? I know nothing about amps. I have only ever bought receivers

The Emotiva XPA-5 will give you the best bang for the buck.

With dual subs, stack'em in the corner and put on a jockstrap. Don't want EVERYTHING in the room jingling!

I would get the X4000 , and then see if you even need another amp. If you are only listening at a max of reference level you will never need more than 20wpc for the La Scalas including headroom. I would bet you will be cruising along with a couple of watts for reference levels. If you want to go with more channels I would just pick up a used 2 channel amp... unless you want to do more amplified zones too. I was running 3 La Scalas and I watched my power consumption and it never budged from turning it on to a very loud level in my room which was 2500 cf. If I recall correctly I had an average SPL at the MLP of around 80db (24db below the La Scalas rating with 1 watt). The Heresy's will be great with the La Scalas.... I have 2 pair of the Heresy HIPs in my setup.

I found an interesting article "Speaker Failure: The Truth." It makes sense to me but not sure if it's the real truth. I'm just posting it here since we were recently in the hotly debated topic of blown speakers.

I've got 3 tweeters coming by tomorrow or monday. They sent me a free replacement and I also added 2 more spares since they were only $26 a piece. This way if something was to happen then I would'nt have my setup down for 1-2 weeks, id just keep it going Here's something a person from Klipsch brought to my attention so I wanted to see if anyone could shine some input. I told him i've been running my Xbox One games and the bluray movies off DTS surround. He suggested using the Dolby Digital setting instead. What kind of differences are there between the 2?

If you don't mind me asking, are you buying the La Scala II's new or used? If you're getting them used, what are the chances you bought two used pairs and want to sell your spare La Scala II? Please PM me as I'm interested if this is the case.

Also, if you want, please PM what these are going for regardless. I am looking to either buy three more La Scala II's or at the very least, buy one for my center to match my other four. These speakers are awesome with dual subs, and Audyssey gets rid of the small peaks (I think one is at ~140hz) that some critics complain about.

I also would recommend the X4000, as I believe it's a new model with HDMI 2.0? Heck, for an 11.2 channel preamp which also has Sub EQ HT, the X4000 is worth it in my mind.

However, I wonder if you'll need an external amp if you plan to use Audyssey? Maybe check the X4000 support thread and see what your La Scala II levels might be set at. I know on my Marantz AV8801 preamp, Audyssey set speaker levels to -20dB, which for me meant Audyssey could not flatten things out as well, since the filters run out of headroom in the negative direction (the direction EQ is preferred to be in too).

I installed balanced XLR pads between my amp and the AV8801 to get speaker level closer to 0dB. If you have such issues, you may want to look into buying a nice amp later and add external in line pads. ATI Amplifiers makes awesome amps right here in the US. It's best to first try the X4000 and see how things workout. The important thing is the X4000 has preouts, which makes it very versatile for the money.

The Denon X4100W should be out very, very soon; if you can, I'd wait and get that unless you can score an exceptionally good deal on an X4000.

While the hd versions(true hd and dts hdma) are pretty much equals, dd5.1 has a lower bitrate than dts. I think for bluray dd is capped at 640kbps and dts is 1.5mbps, dvd is lower for both. Dts always sounded hotter or better to my ears, maybe the guy is recommending dd because it isnt as hot? Seems strange to recommend dd over dts though...

seriously ? it only tells me i'm right about my statement about the helpdesk lol they do not have any knowledge of speakers apparently.
like robbiey noted the difference is better, clear highs and sound due to the higer bitrate and the rears and center that are not bandwidth capped. (center capped at 10khz with DD.. depending on avr also, not 100% sure about this so dont pin me on it) that are not bandwidth capped. suggesting dolby digital is a stupid advise imho. when u overdrive the tweeters with DTS , u are sure going to overdrive with the DD setting as it highs are not so pronounced as with DTS. Allthough it sound pretty good , it is not the wised thing to do coz the lower hz feeded to the tweeter is the thing that causes the damage mostly. higher hz will make it move faster and make it hotter but the tweeter can handle about a few hundred watt peak for a considerable amount of time, not enough for it to overheat. also probably u allready suffer from hearing damage if everything sounds a bit less bright. with any klipsch the highs are a little more bright then other speakers.

Hi Klipsch fellows!

I used to listen to music through Klipsch Headphones for around 4 years. If I didnt use the headphones, I mainly listened to radio or spotify through my laptop speakers. Recently, I had a thought, that there needs to be more quality in music in my life, so I got a pair of Klipsch RF 62 II speakers and a Denon X2000 reciever.

My intention was the same - to listen to spotify and internet radio, just with a bit more quality I dont have a TV, will probably never have a 5.1 setup, so main intent was some stereo sound through the internet. Unfortunately, the Denon X2000 could not provide me that. It froze and restarted, whenever I played music through an internet radio / spotify / airplay, and even USB. After a very painful week of resetting things, changing routers, restarting microchips and checking wires, I sent the X2000 asking for a refund.

I will get the Money back (hopefully ) next week, so I am looking for something to power the Klipsch RF 62s. The main thing that im concerned about - it must be modern. Has to have airplay, DLNA playing, spotify playing, internet radio, NAS playing etc. Don't need a radio (therefore don't care if its a reciever / stereo amplifier). Can anyone share their experiences or have some suggestions? Only thing - I dont want another Denon or Marantz (apparently same corp makes them). Any Onkyos? Harmans? Yamahas?


At the moment I am looking into Onkyo TX-NR626. Sounds good?

Thanks for Your suggestions in advance, and have a great day!

You could use a computer/laptop with an HDMI out to any HDMI-ready receiver/amplifier in your case.

I know you had a bad experience with Denon, but many of us use one without issue.

Did you ask for help in the Denon X2000 thread? There are quite a few experts that post in the Denon threads that may have been able to help (BatPig for example)....

I have used a Denon 3808 and Denon 4311 to power my RF-7ii 5.1 setup for quite some time...

Mathematics is the reason for the season.

^^^ & I've had 3; the 1st one, NO problems; #2 has had to go back Twice; #3 has had to go back only once, but, needs to go back, Again...

All in All, I'd still buy another Denon, because of the features for the money & 3 year Warranty on the higher models...but, you may need that Warranty...ymmv

Hi, yeah I was reading and asking, and pretty much did everything. Also was talking with a Denon dealership. Well, might have happened that I got a crappy model (my luck, heh ).


Nevertheless, might as well try something else, no afflicition to particular Brands, thats why looking into Onkyo TX-NR626 at the moment. Had too much of a hassle, dont wanna go that route again.

Onkyo probably has the most issues of any brand in the past 4 or 5 years. Read the amps and avr threads on this site.

oh ok I was reading some HDMI issues for the most part, which seems a bit sad. Any ideas on Yamaha 675 working with Klipsch?

I do have Denon x4000 and all online streaming play very well. I listen online radio a lot and no freezing no loosing connection. Airplay work just fine also. Meybe you had just a bad luck with lemon reciever and don't know about Yamaha but from what I read it is also great brand for AVR but I'm Denon guy already 10 years and very happy with them. Sometimes those problems what you talking about can be because your internet speed is slow or very uneven and it can cost dropping connection. Always worth to ask your internet provoder if modem what you have from them is the latest one now I believe is D3.0 models and ofcourse wifi is a big part for loosing coneection ( but Denon need to wired anyway) so I in case I'm using Apple Airport
Extreme and it is so far the best wifi a even owned( had before Nergear not good model what I had and Linksys is better but Airport is a winner at least for me).
You don't need to be worry about AVR working with Klipsch any AVR will work with your Klipsch speakers, just look for features what you like and want. Don't be scared of Denon I'm pretty sure it was only what one what cost all those problmes. Don't forget to call Yamaha or Denon deales for best pricing possible, don't byu it online without to call them you can get a better deal 100%.

MUDCAT45 is right I will skip Onkyo also just for a lot issues with it.

Denon X4000
Klipsch RF-82II's , RC-62II , RS-52II's
SVS 2x PC12-Pluses
Emotiva XPA-3
Sony KDF-60XS955
Apple Mac mini, Sony PS3

It sucks that you've had so many issues with Denon because they are the correct receivers I personally recommend and overall bring the best performance. I'm going to be purchasing the X3100W for all the wifi capabilities and I have your exact speakers. The receiver is due in July. If I'm wrong at least you know I'm putting my money where my mouth is.

EDIT: Yamaha will work, but my only reservation is that any flavor of Audysey MultEQ will best YAPO. Sometimes it's not even funny.

You're right. The HDMI boards that Onkyo was using were made at a plant in Japan that was destroyed by the tsunami. They had to outsource to another facility which made crapola HDMI boards. Now, their reliability is on par with everyone else. As a matter of fact, I'd suggest getting the best deal on whatever Onkyo or Denon you can find. Just ignore the name, and look at the specs you want to see.


On a very very small aside, Onkyo does have THX certification. Now this doesn't mean much in and of itself. There are great units without certification all over the market. But, the Onkyo DOES have it, and with that does come good quality. You also get the option of using the THX DSP, which some people like.


The Onkyo 1010/929, 3010, 5010 are all superb AVRs, with the 929 being an excellent value. You also can't go wrong with the Denon x4000, but I'd wait on a sale price soon with the new line coming in.

I have used all flavors or Audyssey except pro. The only one I would even consider is XT32. Actually I kept it disabled. YAPO is better than all but XT32 IMO. Still, I kept it disabled also.

Reading on the amps forum does not reflect that Onkyo is now producing quality units again.
