Lol! I'm an electrician and those "Lifters" are what we use on the job to support cables in a temporary condition,the cable goes between 2 halves,I was looking at them in the shop one day and figured why not give them a try to see if i hear any difference,not sure if I do but they look kinda cool lol.

I suppose if it relieves cable strain some they may have some value.....otherwise I wouldn't use the word "cool" to describe it. YMMV :)

It's not about the ability to relieve cable strain,it's the fact that Porcelain is totally non conductive so it separates any floor vibrations from possibly being picked up by the cables. As far as being cool,it's a lot cheaper this way trying something out before paying money to find out that lifters don't do anything.

Porcelain is non conductive to floor vibrations, eh? Don't think I've heard that before. Those poor wires inside your speakers...:rolleyes:

Like I said,it's something I thought about trying out so why not. That's all.

I just updated my posting to reflect the updated receiver, addition of Bluesound Vault w/Tidal Hi-Fi streaming and updated sub from SVS SB1000 to their SB2000.

Still not listed on Page 1 under Massachusetts. Oh well. The offer stands.

Hello everyone, newbie to the home theater scene. I've been lurking a couple weeks since I found out my bonus check will be big enough to start creating my own theater.

I'm leaning toward the following 5.1 Klipsch setup:
LR - RP-280F
Center - RP-450C
Surround - RP-250S
Sub - R-115SW
Receiver - Denon AVR-X4200W

Does anyone in the SE Michigan area have a similar setup that would be willing to demo? Or does anyone have a favorite HT audio store I could visit that has this setup?

Location: Nashua, NH

TV: Vizio E70-C3
AVR: Denon X3200W
Speakers: SVS Prime Series (Towers, Center, Satellites)
Sub: SVS PC-2000


TV: 48" Samsung JU6400
AVR: Sony STR-DH750
Towers: BIC DV64
Center: BIC DV62CLR-S
Surrounds: BIC DV32
Sub: Dayton 10"

I'm a bit off the beaten path, but I will have the new Reaction Audio 10 and 15" speakers available to demo as well as some Cinema 10 Max and Life S9 speakers I just wrapped up.

Ladysmith, BC. Just shoot me a PM if you want to hear them. And if you're in Vancouver maybe we can work something out.

Hey guys anyone out there who have auditioned SVS Ultra Towers or Prime Towers. I don't have a home theater these would be purely for music.

Thanks all,
