Are you ever satisfied?

Sounds like a well thought out or highly evolved system.

Lots of tinkering with lateral moves over the past few years, but after the last few changes, things finally feel nicely dialed in.

Some might say my speaker change last year was a downgrade (Harbeth 30.2 XD previously), but these Forte IV’s are so much more engaging. At low volume they just envelope you. It’s crazy.

I lusted after Forte’s in my youth.

Never owned a pair…

Klipsch are an understated bargain if you have room for them.
Sounds like you are in a happy place. No need to move.

Klipsh is a great bargin. After Dyn and Wilson i now have Cornwall IVs snugly placed in my room with tube power (always wanted to try that) and have been good with no changes for over a year.

This year for fun i may go back to a planer as i have owned a few but not a Maggie. The valves may struggle but the Rose wont and one thing we are never short of in this hobby is options!

In fact not long ago i had Fortes and planers. Very different sounds but thats the fun part.

Same thoughts on my CW IVs. I do a lot of early morning listening at low volume. I have no idea why these speakers sound so good at low levels but they do.

I had Magnepan .7’s for a few years, and liked them. But they just didn’t look right in my living room, and my downstairs space was too small for them. Sold them to a local guy, and kinda wanted to get 'em back, but he’d moved them on before I had the chance!

I had both planer and box for quite a while. May try again. Aspects of both I like a lot.

“Are you ever satisfied?”

Short answer…Yes.

Not intending to be derogatory, yet it seems unlikely that the best position for the dynamic and planar (CLS?) speakers handily don’t overlap. Aren’t you compromising one, or both?

AGREED!

No. But I think that I could be.
If only…

I’m sitting here listening to Coltrane Ballads, 45 rpm and I’m thinking: shut up idiot, be grateful.
Glorious sound.

Ron if you are typing while listening you are not giving it its due.

Finally got around to watching this video. My system is modest at best and my house is small, but I always feel satisfied when I watch videos like this and the guy, and it’s always a guy, says things like he had an hour and a half to spare so he swapped out hundreds of pounds of gear at someone else’s house, then listened— all in that hour and a half. Then I think I want that kind of time management along with bigger biceps, and then I realize how satisfied I am. :joy::rofl::grinning:

I’m away from my system for two weeks and I miss it a lot. Funny thing is when I am gone, I’m totally satisfied with it and love the SQ, so I have no desire to change anything.

Then I checked into this forum, and I have a M-2 fuse waiting for me at home. I’m about to step back into a dangerous field with tons of rabbit holes again.:laughing:
