Well this is how I will respond . If that's the case which for some reason I feel it's psychoacoustic that you really are . Because if you were you would understand the love for not only participation but as a fan . Furthermore to ask something to other friends on this forum not Klipsch orientated is our choice not yours . So what are you now the thumbs up police along with what other forum members briefly talk about that you don't approve of rolleyes.gif Really ?

I will answer the question the best that I can but the thumbs-up" feature is more like a face book "like" than what is explained in this forum which is "gives a thumbs up if you think this post was helpful."

For example in the discussion you had on paper vs metal drivers gave our advisory a number of "thumbs up" that I think were unwarranted because they seemed more like "attaboys instead of being informative...Again, I hate this because I think it derails the purpose of this thread and this forum. frown.gif

Why would it be sophomoric at all? It was an earnest question about a passion we both share.Maybe I am taking you wrong somehow but I wasn't trying to offend or anything.

I missed a word- I mean "disdain for mixed martial arts" or MMA. I didn't mean martial arts.

Anyway you're right, it's not the place. But this is the Klipsch owner's thread - not necessarily the Klipsch discussion thread. It is a place for owner's of klipsch products to discuss whatever they want, IMO. Anyway, best of luck to you too. No hard feelings.

I'm not sure if you have disdain for martial arts or just believe that participation is far greater than spectatorship. MMA is a highly developed martial art so I would assume a martial artist such as yourself would enjoy watching it in its highest practical forms. FWIW I have been doing brazilian jiu-jitsu for more than 7 years.
Much respect !! Brazilian jiu-jitsu is one of my favorite forms of martial arts . Btw it was a brilliant fight card today with 5 hours of fights on fox one sports . There going to be hosting many Ufc fights now and today was there first day of many to come . Oh and my Klipsch speakers were loving it as much as me . Sounded like I was I'm the ring !! Klipsch are a amazing speaker , the realism is truly amazing !

Well going to test out my Klipsch speakers with a new Bluray Olympus Has Fallen . I've been looking forward to this one . Have a great night my Klipsch brothers !! cool.gif

Wait... I have no opinion of you as a friend or a foe but this forum is for information and THAT is my purpose here.,, For the record you thanked me for helping talking you out of the RF-82s and getting the RF-7sIIs and I have no regret for that.

I picked these up today from a CL ad. and got a really sweet deal on these minty RS-7s. I never realized how big these were until I auditioned them today. Also included was some very nice high quality hardwood stands. I'm still amazed that I can't find a single scratch on these given their age.....










I'm really stoked to integrate these into my room... smile.gif

Hey Factor, the search function sucks after the first 100 pages of posts but you came on asking alot of questions and here is where I steered you in the direction of the RF-7IIs in 2010:

I've seen many posts about break-in periods and i've never worried about it, always felt it was a little bit crazy, but I never spent 8 months of savings on speakers either - So a bit paranoid. My original plan was to play some rock music in all channel stereo at medium volume levels for an hour, then run Audyssey. I am not sure if this is ideal or if I should use different material or play it for longer. I'd probably run Audyssey again a couple months down the road and see if there are changes either way.

Some people claim 1 minute, other people claim 48 hours. I've seen a couple claim it takes months. confused.gif


Congrats biggrin.gif

No hard feelings and this is the place I get away from work. I don't wish to discuss it here because in real life everyone wants to discuss what I do for a living and this is one of the few places I don't need to talk about it. Thanks.

{EDIT Note: You have 3 thumbs up on a post that has nothing to do with Audio and THAT is why I don't like that function.}

Come on guys, let's stop the petty bickering. We all share a passion for audio and particularly the Klipsh brand. Things will always sway off topic on any given thread but imho there's nothing wrong with some friendly off topic banter and a little off topic humor on occasion. Worst case scenario, just agree to disagree and move on. smile.gif

I don't like off topic bantering and try to refrain from it...Then again, I don't like being attacked without responding and I have less OT remarks than most. {Edit: This train of posts started when I invited folks to respond to appropriate threads dealing with exteranal amps if they thought they needed one...}

2nd Edit: Btw, here is one more with the AVR that I own:

Fwiw, I am relaxed and stand by what I posted. This isn't a job but supposed to be an informative thread dealing with Klipsch Speakers instead of attaboy comments that get most of the "thumbs up" the dude is making fun of.

post #25018 of 35253
Did you ever buy something new or think about something new, then look for a great forum for assistance? Lurk around or register as a newbie? Sure, we all have.

You are thinking about Klipsch or bought your first set . . . .

As a newbie you find the AVS "Klipsch Owners Thread." You don't read the posts from beginning of end to see if it is any good; you read from the last post backwards . . ."

What is that newbie going read in the last 5, 6, 7+ pages? Is that newbie going to say, "Wow! Found an awesome thread dedicated to the audio video SCIENCE of Klipsch speakers.". Uh . . . No.

We are on the path of wrecking a great thread . . . anybody notice people have disappeared because the and fewer and. Fewer are posting, even formerly established members?

I find myself reading more on the Klipsch threads on audiokarma, than even here.

If this is thread is going to be Fakebook or all about home theater, it is turning into a giant waste of time, except for those a few who want to treat it like Fakebook and any topic goes.

Are we going to be about a Klipsch speakers, and encourage each other to start a different thread when we get OFF topic? Or is this the "If you happen to own a Klipsch speaker, come on here and post anything you want, just like Fakebook" thread?

We sure are proving how to wreck a thread. It is our thread, and if we keep on this path . . . There will be fewer who take it seriously. But, if that is what is desired . . .

Can we get back to KLIPSCH?

What Would PWK do?

Thanks, Tasdom, for trying and posting something about speakers to try to get us back on track . . . awesome score on the RS7s!

PS . . . In lieu of a TU, if you support this post . . . Just drop what PWK would call extraneous BS, and talk speakers. . . . OK?

Thanks Tasdom and Rhetor...I totally agree and last night I watched 2 concert Blu-rays (Robert Plant & Sheryl Crow) and have decided that my Front Heights are going to stay...I am not sure if they are now broken in or I am getting more accustomed to them being up there, but I agree with what someone else said about "missing them when they aren't being used." I also like the Dolby PLz way better than the DSX, which makes things seem more echoey. That said, I may ask my wife to juggle settings to see how much I would really miss them being gone, but they look so cool up there I'll probably keep them none the less. smile.gif

Nice pickup! I like those stands, are they custom? I have a pair of RS3 and have been looking for some stands but am having trouble finding some with a large enough top plate. How big are the top plates of those stands?
