    That's enough to make me wonder what's a Ken Worth?

    With large/tall tower speakers, is it a problem that a lot of the time the tweeter is going to be well above ear level when you're seated in front of them?

    Well, it depends on the dispersion of the tweeter -- more to the point, of the whole loudspeaker system.

    Some tweeters sound best from another room --- or maybe even in someone else's house. The venerable Electrovoice T35 fairly leaps to mind. :)

    Tom Brennan famously quipped that the best positioning for Klipsch Heresys is face down, and ideally in a different room or domicile than that of their hapless owner.

    As Mark suggested, depends on the dispersion pattern. A simple fix, if it bothers you, is to tilt the speaker forward by raising the back end an inch or 2 and see if that helps.

    There's a tasteless joke in there someplace -- but, since you're a newb and all, I'll resist the temptation.

    I have it working about 85% now. The volume dial needed deoxidizing to get the severe static cleared out. The quad meter was pulsating on the right and then on the left channel more than the others. After I deoxidized the volume, the meter barely pulsates at all now. There are push buttons I couldn't get to today. In fact I didn't get to do any of them. Some are still really oxidized and need cleaning badly. But it plays fantastically. All functions work pretty well though. I'm HAPPY. I also cleaned all the knobs and dials and glass and front plate. It looks new! :pB) The tuner pulls in stations beautifully. Look at the size compared to a regular receiver under it. :D

    I found out today hooking the 2 speakers up that this receiver can have 8 speakers hooked up to it. :o I'm going to go look at the manual from on the web JUST how this 8 speaker ability works. The rear is dusty and needs cleaning too. Maybe tomorrow.

  • Those of you old enough, remember when Sunoco pumps had the dial where you selected the octane. Remember 260, I think it was 100 octane. I purchased my fair share of it.

    Ran across this old ad.

    Other; S60'S, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All vintage Polk have had crossover rebuilds and tweeter upgrades.
