Home Theater Audio / Re: Amazon Fire Stick and Plex for audio streaming
« Last post by Sir Thrift-a-Lot on June 05, 2018, 12:23:22 AM »
Well, I've been using the Firestick/Plex combo for a while and all I can say is that I'm not impressed.   I notice some "choppiness" in the image when playing 1080 .ts files from my computer.   The sound is even worse.   I have it set to play the native stream rather than resampling, but some things just refuse to sound right.

I've reached the conclusion that the only thing that is going to do everything I want at a level to suit me is a media PC.   Good thing I have lots of computer parts kicking around.

Home Audio Equipment in the Burgh / Klipsch Heresy HBR two pair
« Last post by non-prophet on June 04, 2018, 06:34:41 PM »
I just got two nice pairs of Heresy's.  Both have consecutive serial numbers.  one pair is walnut with black grills and the other is blonde with cane grills (very cool).  Both have factory risers and tags.  They are nice with a couple of easily fixable chips or flaws.  PM me if interested, no trades unless you have something really cool (Nelson Pass design is usually a good starting point).  I will post pictures later.  Thank you for looking, Nick.

The Circular File / Re: Temporary shout box.

per the cover of the manual, looks like a 10"

The cover of the manual shows all three model numbers.   Based on appearance I'm going to guess it's a 10, but it's only a guess.

I wonder if it is the 10", 12" or 15".   The price is sure right.   If it is the 15", I have a cabinet for it.

Repair / Help / Re: Heathkit AA151 Volume Control Issue

Tape monitor switches are notorious for causing problems as well, in my experience.  It may take more than one  cleaning.

I will swap out components and swap the tubes.  The volume seems balanced but low.  I can listen to the Heresys with the volume knob at 3 o'clock and it's not too loud.

Yeah, that's not right.   I can drive my Hereseys with the headphone jack of my DAC.   Did you give a good cleaning to the mode switch?  That could give all of the symptoms you have described.
