Re: Kingmans Equipment

Yep...I've been a music addict since the 70's...that's where the Kenwood and Technics came in...all I could afford at the time...still have the original integrated amp and tuner with speakers hooked up I bought in 1978...can't stand to change it...sounds sweet if only 40 watts...my other stuff is in a bedroom ( yea, it's a tight fit)...tried to upload pics, but files too big...will try later with less pixels.

Re: Kingmans Equipment

Kingman, welcome and get ready!! There's gonna be snide, but good natured comments about your choice of a certain brand of speakers. I think it's like a tribalistic bonding ritual among stereo freaks to attack any and all things Bose! BTW, I've got two very low mileage seriesV available at an extremely reasonable price!! :lol: That's a shitload of nice equipment you've amassed! :) Geoff

Re: Kingmans Equipment

yea, I know...Had a couple of DQ-10's but blew them up with the amps...can some one recommend some speakers under $1000 that will be accurate with this set up? Thanks! TFM -35 bi-amped.

Re: Kingmans Equipment

Think Amazings! AL-IIIs can be had for under a grand. So can some of the bigger ones, but they' don't travel well.

I purchased these MB Quart Alexxa S-One's and at first I was disappointed in the bass. Now after a month plus the woofers have burned in and bass is starting to sound Great! The price is why over what you mentioned but let me explain; The adds say "each". When I called Maxxsonics (parent company of MB Quart) looking for a dealer location, there was none in Oregon. I was able to purchase these "direct" from the company for $700.00 each (Piano Black) or you could get the White for $600.00 each. The shipping was only $75.00! After she told me this I decided to go the extra few hundred and order, could not pass this up. Good luck in your decision. Late

Kman, I switched from those that shall not be named, to Polk SDAs of various series, the SRSIIs are incredible (to my ears anyway!) but somewhat rare. A good model that usually goes for under $500-$600 is the SDA1-C, no bi-amp capabilities though. Sometimes SRS models are at, or just a little over $1000

These are tasty looking :D

Re: Kingmans Equipment

Thanks TFM-45...I'm looking at a pair of Polk RTiA7's. Anyone heard anything about these.?..the specs say they can be bi-amped and they look pretty good. Thanks to all for their replies.

I'm sure Jesse (F1nut) will have something to say about those Polks. I never learned to Polka :D
