    PSB 5T sounds "weird"

    It's just the one speaker. I guess you'll need to explain the lack of power from the receiver. My Onkyo is rated at 100 watts at 8 ohms, which I think translates to 125 or 130 watts for 6 ohms, which the imepdance selector is switched to since all my PSB speakers are rated for 6 ohms. The 5T...

    PSB 5T sounds "weird"

    Ouch, this is disheartening. Well, did a little more troubleshooting last night and looks to me as if the binding posts for the higher frequencies are bad somehow. When I plug the speaker wire into the upper range posts and remove the jumpers the sound is tinny and almost non existant when...

    PSB 5T sounds "weird"

    Seems as if there's something coming from the tweeter, but not everything that I would expect to, especially when compared to the other 5T on the left channel. I e-mailed PSB and they seem to think I need to take the speaker in for service. Great, and it's only a year old? Would it be...

    PSB 5T sounds "weird"

    OK, so here's my setup (not that I'm saying, "Hey, check me out!" just for reference): a Onkyo TX-DS696, with PSB Image series speakers on all five channels (5T, 9C, and 2B) connected with Sound King 12 gage speaker wire. About a month ago, the 5T on the right front channel started sounding...

    Cafe in Heat and Pul Fiction the same?

    Heat was a well crafted film. Anyone ever seen Manhunter? Made in 1986, its was Mann's interpretation of the Hannibal Lector novel "Red Dragon." Mann uses many of the same people in Manhunter as he does Heat (director of photography and assorted actors come to mind). The look and feel of both...

    Cafe in Heat and Pul Fiction the same?

    OK, I just saw Heat for the first time last night. Early in the movie, after pulling the job for the bonds in the armored car, DeNiro, Kilmer, etc, meet in a cafe to split the take. Was this cafe the same as the "honey bunny" cafe at the opening and end of Pulp Fiction? The decor and location...

    psb canadian pricing

    It'd probably be worth your time to call up Stereoland in Windsor, Ontario and see what they have to offer. They quoted me spectacular prices on the PSB Image speakers that I eventually bought from them. They carry the Stratus series as well. I worked with Kirk and he was more than helpful...

    Ok, I just saw Requiem for a Dream and..

    I finally watched this movie last night. I bought it cold just on what I had read here. After watching it from Midnight to 2:00 am last night, I initially came away thinking it wasn't THAT disturbing. I mean, I thought Se7en was way more disturbing the first time I saw it. But the thing that...

    New psb image series?

    I'd be weary of this. I have the PSB 5T/9C/2B setup and all are clearly marked on the grilles, on the rear, and debossed near the tweeter with the PSB lowercase logo (like "psb"). Seeing as you're in Canada, and PSB's are Canadian made, you may be privvy to new models before those of us south of...

    Stereoland in Windsor ROCKS

    I can't say enough about how amazed and pleased I am with Stereoland in Windsor, Ontario. I had been auditoning speakers for a couple months when I decided that the PSB Image series was suited me best. I called around to a few places in the Chicago area to get pricing. Then, completely on a...

    Wharfedale Speakers at Best Buy

    Best Buy sells crap. Period. Sales purely based on quantity, not quality of equipment. They know they can push more Pioneer or Sony entry level receivers than they could Pioneer Elite or Sony ES. The JBL they sell are not top or even middle of the line. The Wharf's are obviously entry level...

    Wharfedale Speakers at Best Buy

    These speakers worry me... Granted I haven't heard them yet, but a company as reputable as Wharf in cahoots with a company renowned for selling garbage like Best Buy, plus plastering the "Wired By Monster Cable" logo all over the speakers... There's a LOT of marketing muscle behind this line...

    The wife said Yes ... (longish)

    I was happy to see this thread come up after the "My Wife Has Spoken" bitch session thread. To those guys I say, grow up and remember why you married your wife. I'm glad there are other fellows here who love their wives, too. :) My wife's pretty much wonderful all the time. I'm reminded of it...

    Hey Folks, thanks for the feedback. :emoji_thumbsup: Helpful, friendly, and concise. And of course....very much appreciated. Armed with this information, I'll look up retailers in the area and start auditioning. I was considering burning a "demo disc" of my own with some of my favorite songs...
