Hey guys, made a decision

Well, I finally made a choice, here it is.

After a lot of listening and talking with people, and what not, I've bought these.

Klipsch RF-3 fronts
Klipsch RC-3 center

I plan to get the Klipsch RS-3 surrounds too soon.

I didn't totally abandon Polk though :).....

Next Wed I will be getting the Polk PSW650 subwoofer. I will test it out for a while, see how it performs, and if I don't like it, I will be purchasing an SVS PCi 16-46 subwoofer. I heard the SVS PCi 20-39 at a buddies house and loved it! I really like the PSW650 too, but I only heard it in a LARGE room at Fry's, so I think it will be twice as good in a smaller room like I have.

Here's some pics of the Klipsch stuff. Thanks again to all that gave me advice, and helped me make the best decision for my ears. I will definitley be around here more to get help with that bad boy 650, and to chit chat!

    Speaker7 - He really didn't replace these with anything. He bought these a year ago and only used them for about 6 months maybe total. The he boxed them back up and just kept them. When he saw I was looking for some RF stuff he posted saying he would sell me his, since they are just taking up space. Here's a list of what he has, not a small list :)

    2 Channel Music
    Laurel IIX Mono Blocks
    Conrad-Johnson PV-14L Preamp
    Conrad-Johnson EV-1 Phono Stage
    71 ALK Cornwall II's (w/Laurels)
    Music Hall MMF-7 Turntable

    Fisher 800B Tube Receiver (Outs to CJ Preamp)
    84 Heresy's-Inverted(w/Fisher 800B)
    Technics SL-D2 Turntable
    Sony CDP-CA80ES
    Sony Cassette TC-K444esII
    DAK Stereo Power Controller

    Klipschorns (Temp Set-UP)
    Jolida 102B Tube Amp
    Ah! Tjoeb 99 CD
    Sony MDS-JE320 MiniDisc Deck

    Here's his main Home Theatre setup...

    Main HT
    NAD T 761 Receiver (Pre-outs to /Anthem Amp 1/Outlaw 750)
    SF Anthem Amp 1 (Tube Amp)
    Outlaw 750 5 Channel Amp
    Belle Klipsch (Front w/Anthem Amp 1)
    Klipsch Academy (Center w/Outlaw)
    85 Klipsch Cornwall I's w/B Networks (Rear w/Outlaw)
    Klipsch RS-3's (Rear w/NAD)
    SVS SV20-39CS SUB (Sampson S1000 Amp)
    Klipsch KSW-12 (Sub) (w/NAD Mains)
    Sony DVP-NC650V DVD/SACD
    Mitsubishi Stereo VCR
    Mitsubishi 52" Wide Screen
    Sony Remote Commander RM-AV2100
    Monster Cable HTS-3500 Audio/Video Power Conditioner

    Bedroom HT Setup
    Onkyo TX-DS484
    Denon DVM-3700 HDCD/DVD
    Sony Dual Cassette Deck
    Phillips Magnavox 27''
    Klipsch Quintets (Front, Center & Surrounds)
    Sony STR AV760 (Sub out from Onkyo)
    Infinity SubWoofer (Sony STR AV760 w/ Sub out)


    So needless to say the RF-3 stuff was just extra stuff waiting for me to buy them :)


    MxStYlEpOlKmAn - Good guess, but they are Belle's. They look real similar to the Klipschorns.

    OP,

    I've been looking at the Conrad-Johnson 17LS preamp mating to some Bryston 7B-ST mono's. What does your friend think of his CJ?

    Speaker7 - You're welcome.

    Russman - Thanks for the compliments. I hope you were talking about the RF-3's I posted a pic of, not the laundry list I posted, the list is not my stuff, it's Wes' stuff, I wish I had some of that list though! :)
