Weseixas, I am not knocking Thiel. The man was someone I met and shared ideas with, and I represented his products for years. In fact, it was he who gave me the idea to "deaden" the Lascala enclosures. This was a long time ago, and the audio commu...

My experiences with 3.5s is that even at 100 db they show signs of serious compression, as well as ill defined bass and peaky treble, and this was with Krell amplification, a better match than Threshold, ime. 100 db is a volume that I do listen at...

Larry, if I am correct, the deluding ourselves remark was made as a generalization about all of us, not just the horn lovers, correct ? That is how I read it. Again, thank you for your words. MrD

Which speaker has the biggest sound stage?
Lrsky , saying Elizabeth was "WRONG" was quite a strong statement. It might have been better just to say : in my 15 years experience this was never the case. And of course a second person had this experience. I enjoy reading your posts. 
System versus live
Hi all and thanks for the responses. I thought it would be a fun topic and I understand it might have been mentioned here before. There is no question that concerts that use amplification are somewhat easy to duplicate, or even exceed in quality, ... 
Are The Klipsch Heritage Series Really Worthy?
I agree with John K that certain upgrades for the Heritage series are to minimize and / or eliminate problems in the basic design, not in the repair of a broken product. It is my opinion that most audio products out there can be approved upon, eve...
