        Image height was recently brought up by Stereophile. I sit on a lower chaise, perfect height. Laying on a couch might be perfect too. For a chair or sitting up, raising might help. I was trying to discern how raising the speakers would help the bass as they mentioned in stereophile, but no theories on my end.

        There is a showroom in Nashua, Audio Video Therapy, that is a Klipsch Heritage dealer. Bet they might have these setup to try. Met them at last meet, easy to talk to guys who mention they could loan speakers to take home for a night or weekend.

        Love AV Therapy. That's actually where I first heard the speakers on that Parasound integrated. My favorite speakers I've tried there so far are Aerial Acoustics floorstanders, but the larger drivers and much higher sensitivity of the Forte III appeal to me given I own Rag 1. Might need to head back up and try the Forte III on my amp this time, or bring home.

        You push them on and they spring off. Apparently, the old ones didn't do that: must be a feature of new-improved-design.

        The internet told me that the answer is to stretch the transparent plastic band to weaken it. That worked.

        Used pliers.

      By random chance, came across your Notorious Thugs Forte 3 vid on youtube. Was clicking absentmindedly when I noticed the amp. Then I realized it was your middle finger in the vid. Too funny.

        You can't really have too much speaker when it comes to horns. There's more reflections in smaller rooms so larger horns tend to perform better there because of their better pattern control. Consider the 2-way KI-396 like I have too, Metropolis Lake Outfitters does a special version with in matte black with the flypoints deleted and they're the same price as the Forte III for a whole lot more speaker.

        Im roughly 10 feet away from them in a pretty big room, interesting to hear that they open up further the more you can seperate from them.

        I agree on the lower level listening level, I find it pleasant. Still get bass and detail while listening at around 80db.

        Yeah, it takes some distance for the tweeter to integrate to the mid properly and it's the high frequencies that give you "air".

        Yeah, his friend's comments are a bit illogical. Cheap DAC #1 reveals details expensive DAC #2 cannot. A child could make the comparison. FWIW, my TEAC UD503 revealed 5x more detail than the Aries, if you want a non-Schiit point of view. I don't see how being a violin loving Italian vs American has much to do with it (other than showcasing one's own prejudices).

        Interesting... looks to be mostly lower end mid-fi models. Also interesting that all the HD5 models have slightly different specs. And they're all open backed... I would imagine HD-600/650 > HD-5X9, but maybe these will replace the HD-558/598's.

        edit: Ahh, they aren't all open backed. So three models of open, and a new closed back. The 569 seems to be the most interesting to me. I'd love for a nice closed back 650.

        It was awesome. Had no idea how much energy they played with. Thought it was a guy and mostly electronic whatever and a girl, but it's 5 PC band where they all multi task play multiple instruments and really rock. Too fun, would def recommended seeking out a show

        My guess is someone found a unlinked placeholder page and Zach probably wasn't ready to release / explain all the finer details of the release. Just seems like the $1k tube amp market is going to be competitive.

        That's a tough sell when Mjolnir 2 is balanced, a heck of a lot more powerful and $100 cheaper. Also output impedance isn't listed

        Ewe. Almost all of the part cost must have been sunk into the chassis on this. The same output transformers are used in things like the $229 miniwatt S-1.

        The article we posted about was on their version 1 of the amp. They have since revised it and it sounds much better. The price drop was obviously needed as most people had commented on as was the volume issue.
