    Long time for ANYthing Heart here to put their Greatest Hit's Live LP on from '85... Then onto "Dreamboat Annie" and actually HEARD Heart! Good live show on the double LP but "Dreamboat Annie" just nailed it! About 3 months ago I had a song w/a woodblock workin in my head thinking it was Fleetwood Mac.... Nooooope... "White Lightning & Wine!" Whew! Hate it when that happens!

    We talked briefly about the rest of his trip and his return with the Khorns. He is quite a generous man. Great that Larry was interested in your K's too. Always nice to see your loved ones go to good homes.

    on his return trip the speakers he will be picking up at my house are quite a bit larger ( 81 K-horns ) to deliver them to Larry in Tenn.

    No statute of limitations, depending on your circumstances, they can dig back as far as they want or need to; but generally 10 yrs is common. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Huge thank you to Jerry (TFR1) for transporting me Larry's) Scallywagger's Gen 1 Heresys. All the way up from Atlanta to Ann Arbor Michigan for me. I regret we didn't have nice weather to chat in, snowstorm on the way here...Jerry, it was a pleasure meeting you and I appreciate greatly you delivering the speakers safely to me. At this point I have not even taken them out of their packing in their original boxes but I look forward to spending some time over the weekend with them. Let it snow outside, I'll be inside enjoying the music! Once again, the amazing people in this forum make me feel very happy to have met all of you, if even only in the virtual world! Tim

    From my dac to my headphone amp. The amp is unbalanced and the preamp for my main system is also unbalanced. I want to bypass this preamp and go straight to the headphone amp while not interrupting the normal operation of my main system... my dac will function as a pre when using headpones since it has both connector outputs.

    With a lower noise floor when closed.
  12. I was thinking it was but never checked, looks different? I don't know who bought them ?

    The foam will make the wall assembly stiffer and more echoic. At least that's been my experience. Don't know how important one way or another that is to Cecaa in his garage. Acoustic treatment of course is still possible if wall space is available.
  14. congrats to the OP there is really nothing rare to me about a set of 77 Heresys in Walnut Oil. i've seen plenty of them over the last 25 years with the E label if they were Brazillion Rosewood Laquer- Mahogany - Teak - Rosewood or even Cherry now that would be rare if you don't know the JC stamped into the wood on the back are the first initials of the names of the 2 people who built them

    But they also take care of gardens and almost everything else if they get enough time, they can tear up almost anything. Snakes are easier to deal with and for over 20 years so far I have only seen 2 poisonous snakes on the property. It could be why they don't bother me, some are pretty big but they won't kill you, big difference. But the wife could care less, 1' garter snake or a 6' rat snake same thing same effect.
  16. Be fair. Evidently all it takes to make them sound the same is precise gain control between them and keeping them from clipping,.

    Curious where do you use RCA to XLR?

    The sound reflecting more off the walls more after drywall I would think, but it is still going to be a completely different sound. Even after it's done you will know the difference when you walk in the room.
  19. This thread is not for beginners it is for the entertainment of forum members. If you don't lose sight of that nor take OD to seriously it is great entertainment sprinkled with good things from other people. DEFLECT ALERT! So why are you not telling us your recommended beginner's basic, pragmatic, and affordable system components?

    Realistic 2100D receiver

    Just did an extensive A& B test with this receiver against the Marantz 2500 which Randy also recapped. Had several hours to myself on Thursday nursing a bummed knee that swelled up which was my first experience with such an "injury". Odd to say the least. Anyway the test as imperfect as can be, is easily summed up as a near tie as far as my ears are concerned. Keeping both volume as near identical as I could and using a Cheeky CD on the Yamaha CD-1. Grading in detail & bloom, attack & decay, soundstage and grip on the music. In all these both were virtually tied with the Marantz on some tracks offering a bit more soundstage. Take a shaker for example on some jazz tracks and they went wide beyond the speakers on either right or left side where the Realistic stayed in the speakers. But the the virtual vice grip the Realistic had on bass was welcomed while in some guitar strings had more tangible "echo" this revealing a tad bit more detail. Stopping some of the music every 20 seconds and dissecting it while flipping back and forth offered insight to both receivers. Then I let the song flow to get a feel for it's entire length and honestly I can be happy with either in rotation. But just to show how far technology has come neither were able to detail a chair being knocked over in the background on Rebecca Pigeon Spanish Rose solo as it did on the Wharfdale Denton. On the other hand the Denton's don't come close to letting her breath as natural as the Klipsch. With the Klipsch she is HERE as if standing in front of me. Anyway, glad to have another outstanding back up. If you do want a monster receiver I'd highly recommend a Realistic 2100 and no need to get a Marantz 2500. Cheers.
  21. Just made a 1000 mi. round trip last weekend to pick up some Khorns Jim had taken his time to look at for me. Stopped by to meet Jim and enjoy his system. He is a very nice man and very meticulous. These will make someone very happy. Good luck with your sale Jim!
  22. Good move richieb. I almost did the same a few dozen pages back, but jumped back in because it's simultaneously annoying and entertaining. I'm feeling like it's time to permanently bail as well. No beginner in their right mind would read through this ridiculous thread anyway, and there is enough good info in here to counter the dumbness. Enjoy your Pass gear. It's excellent stuff.

    Mission accomplished... I found my new Interconnects. Vast improvements in the area's where the bjc had been recessed and lacking. I am very happy right now. 24 gauge stranded belden silver plated copper. Blue Jeans mentions capacitance as an issue with HF roll off and this is what I had been experiencing. I had almost nothing above 10k hZ and now the entire spectrum is present.
  24. === in closing, and yeah I’m finished here, just this evening within the last two hours I removed the SS Pass gear and inserted a tube integrated from a highly respected maker. Fifteen minutes, a few tunes, flip the switch off and it’s back on the shelf. So no, and although the gear itself is apples to oranges, It Did Not Sound As a Good. Or Remotely Similar. Ive embarrassed myself to have participated in what has become an obvious bait, switch and troll. Out —

    Thanks for that. The local office here takes appointments according to their web site. I didn't call today but I will call next week to see if they're open during this shutdown. I waited 6 months after getting a letter from them and never got an answer, only another duplicate letter with the same information as before. I hope to file an amended return before the deadline.
