    🤗Placed an order today for a pair of Cornwall IVs in black ash, I have wanted a pair sense I first heard them in the early 80s! Retiring later this year and thought it would be a good way to start my new journey.

    As I lie on my comfy couch listening to music I have listened to for many years and spending much time and research and experimentation with different speakers, amps, cables, turntables, CD players, streamers etc etc I get that familiar feeling I have had many times before. Once the chase is over it is often times a tad bittersweet. I am pretty sure that many here are happy with the way their systems have come together and are just listening and enjoying the music like I am. A great place to be but kind of sad whenever the search and pursuit is over for better amps, dacs, cables and speakers are behind us. Almost hard for me to admit I am satisfied just listening to the music I love from the comfort of my couch with the various parts I hobbled together.

    Another birthday to add to the list. My wife surprised me at work... brought food and a nice little cheesecake. We went out for dinner last night... ate a a place overlooking the Tennessee River. I had wood fire grilled salmon, black beans and rice. It was a beautiful time to spend with my wife.

    Thanks to those that served and have passed. My Dad was in Germany as an 18 year old in WW2 . He lived through the war but never recovered from it. If he could only have had a "safe space" and a "cry closet" and that mean ole Adolf would have been "cancelled". Of course he lived in the real world, where you lived or died based on your wits and your fortune, daily.........Thanks Vets !

    The car I miss the most is the Rotus 8 in my avatar. I built it in 1990, starting with a powder coated tube frame purchased from Rotus in Hagerstown, Maryland. I sourced the 63 Buick Special 3.5 liter aluminum V8, Borg Warner T-5 transmission, Toyota Supra 3:90 LSD rear end, and all the other bits required to be a car. At 6’1” Fitting into a Lotus/Caterham 7 was problematic, hence the slightly larger Rotus. The wheelbase was 10” longer and the track was 4” wider than a Lotus/Caterham. It was still snug. At 1800 pounds wet, the 200+ hp V8 provided plenty of oomph. With rocker-arm front suspension, coil over shocks and wide tires it handled like a go-kart on clean and dry surfaces. On wet or sandy surfaces it had serious oversteer. I reluctantly sold it when my older son (~10 yo in photo) was on the eve of getting a license. The cost to insure it with him as a driver was exorbitant, and the prospect of keeping, it but excluding him as a driver, seemed unfair. It was fun to drive, but every time I went for pizza I had to be prepared to answer three questions: Is that a kit car, How much does it cost; and How fast is it? The answers: No, in the sense that it is not a fiberglass body bolted to a donor VW frame. Yes, if a bare frame, no engine, no transmission, and no instructions fits your definition of “kit;” Ask my wife; I don’t know, perhaps 120 mph if pushed off a 10 story building, but it goes 0 - 60 in under 4 seconds. The fastest I ever went was 85 mph merging onto an expressway. These days cars are just tools to me. If I were to do this again I would start with a Caterham 7 (now they have a stretch version) and use electric power. Full disclosure, the above photo is not my car. My engine was prettier. It too had Offy valve covers, but the headers were neater looking. My battery was in the boot (trunk) and I ran a larger Carter AFB; the above carb is a Holley.

    We did get pretty cold back at sea level after an evening snorkeling with manta rays. It’s an amazing experience. I’ve included a few shots that were taken by a pro ocean photographer that went along with us and shared some of his photos.

    I know, I know, I know.....I am very rarely with you at the moment. I'm really sorry, but I hardly have time for my hobbies at the moment. On the one hand I'm back at work , then I additionally build a lot of audio cable for my german HiFi friends. One could already speak of a flood of orders in recent weeks. On the other hand , my beloved wife has a tumor in the spinal cord , she is since 2 weeks in the hospital and comes tomorrow in a special clinic. This means for me even more work and daily efforts with my two teenage children. So you can imagine that everything is very turbulent. I´ve got an 18 hours working day. Nevertheless, I have always found a little time in between to read in the Klipsch Community. As soon as everything has improved, you will hear more from me. With my very best wishes to all .........

    God Bless you Dave! I KNOW you're at peace but I want you to know you're missed by so many here. Yea, you're laffin I know. Remember when I first came here and we found out we both graduated from the Defense Information School? You the broadcast boy and me the writer./shooter? Yea, that was just part of what we did in the Army, I went in the 90's and you were there during Nam with me somewhere. I remember you linking me that post for your chili recipe. The fact you used an old darkroom timer was funny but the part that got me was when you said to put it in the garage and skim the fat off the next morning. Just wish I could pull up my Dave1290 account so I could share it with everyone. It's here though we both know that. No reason to "stay low" anymore brother! Stand tall and know your family is going to be just fine but also know you'll never be forgotten by anyone you've ever met.

    High school classmates getting together shortly at the local park. Just a bring your own bag lunch BS session for most of us. We naturally have a few of the wimmen planning this stuff to keep us all in "touch." We have to have that one though... Everyone gets an email obit when someone passes and she always comes up with the dates for the get together. I swear she's like the class Grim Reaper. Today? Yea, meet up during a solar eclipse. We're doomed I tell ya... Always a lot of laffs though from all of the flower children/rebels of the 60's. Maybe I'll survive. 😂

    As of yesterday no definite arrangements have been made. As soon as I am notified of arrangements I will post comment here. My friendship with Dave dates back 16 years. I met him at a Pilgrimage within weeks of his daughter, Jennings passing. We bonded instantly and became close friends. I can not express how much I will miss him. With all of his oddities, he was truly an honorable, loving, compassionate man. I know from our many conversations that Dave is now with the Great Physician and his suffering is over.

    You'll survive! I've got faith in you! Yup, Friday was wasted but I was workin for the weekend. So here we go since I don't EVER work on weekends! "Vincebus Eruptum" release in 1968 by Blue Cheer... Lil "Summertime Blues" always sounds good on a hot early summer's day! Then things start to happen! A lil Creedence Clearwater! How's mah Suzie Q? JJ Cale's 5th released in 1979.. Mmmmm you won't believe me on this one but it's one H3LL of an LP. BullAngus doin BullAngus waaaay back in 1971. Lil combo of Psych and Hard Rock. FANTASTIC! Just nosin and pulled it out. Hasn't been played in years. Thought it was good then couldn't remember. What a pleasant surprise! Roy Buchanan? Mmmmhmmmmm His Second Album from 1973. Roy's ALWAYS good! Ok, I give up. Ear fatigue, rear fatigue but I'm also hungry! Maybe a Magical Mystery Tour would help? Nope, no workie on wkends. What's tomorrow gonna bring? I'm out! lol

    Buddy's been here and yup I knew we wouldn't get anything done. 😂 Tubes are pushin electrons. Just been unzippin and playin! Nope, no style change here... Ya do or ya don't 😂 Stone Crazy was Buddy Guy's 4th album but this version is a re-release in 180g... He runs the deck, as usual, but it's so clean. Couldn't believe someone actually rated it B+. Think it's a bit better than that imo. I mean it is Buddy Guy yanno! 😂 Jimmy Page had some fun w/this one. Great stuff right here. Pretty much sums it up! First Volume On Double LP! Live At The Club Palais Ballroom 1984! This special recording is a tribute to British blues musician Alexis Korner. Recorded live June 1984 featuring Jimmy Page and Alexis Light Orchestra. Paul Jones, Charlie Watts, Jack Bruce, Ian Stewart & Ruby Turner all comprise the "friends" Jimmy plays with on this record. Alexis Korner was a seminal blues musician, often called the "Father Of British Blues." Without him, we likely would not have The Stones. Korner passed away at the young age of 55 in 1984, the same year this concert was recorded. An absolute must-have. Yea, it's THAT good! 😎 Yup, I loved this one then someone borrowed it 😂 One great album by bunch of great Motor City guys. I'm thinkin they were one of 2 Barry Gordy signed to Motown. They just kill it with the 23.5 track of "Get Ready." Plenty of time to do whatever needed to be done. Now into a lil Jeff Beck... No smoke, sounds fantastic so we GO then hit jam night! Guest appearance, sign a few autographs and disappear into the bowels of the bar! Actually, we'll just walk in, grab something, flop at a table and eyeball the wimmen! Legends in our own minds... 😂 @MicroMara are you still wandering aimlessly in that new system or????? What's the story morning glory??? Time to check-in again... Asking for a friend! Next up a lil of this guy right here.

    I do have a good ladder accident story. I had a nickle section of cancer between my elbow and shoulder on the front side. It was not going to be long before a trip to the dermatologist to remove it like the time before in a different place. Well I was working on the workshop and moving my big ladder and it fell sideways and I caught it. A few minutes later my arm inside my jacket felt wet, so I took it off to find alot of blood and pieces of skin. I went inside to wash it off, cover it and change jackets, that night I looked better and noticed it tore off the spot that was growing. It healed over and nothing growing, I was shocked, so I guess i removed a spot of cancer with a ladder. It still has not come back you can not even tell where it was.

    I tend to forget how old I actually am, and do things a younger person might not even try. You know... like moving the MWMs off the truck and into the house by myself. It could have gone wrong so easily and quickly. Fortunately, it went ok.

    Sunfire Cinema Grand Architect’s Choice Series II, Five Channel Amplifier I’ve recently upgraded my “music room” to a Sunfire Cinema Grand Signature amp, and had planned to use this one in the family room system. However it won’t easily fit in the AV stand, and rather than redo everything (0 WAF) it makes more sense to just sell it, and let someone else make use of it. Output is 225 Watts/channel, with all channels driven (8 Ohm load) It works perfectly, is dead quiet, and sounds fantastic. I’ve even replaced the lamp in the Joule Meter. While it is in great working order, it does have some nicks and scratches also one small dent in the top of the case. The face of the unit does present well and it looks good in the rack. I’ll be happy to send additional pics, if desired. I’m limited by file size on this post. $850, plus shipping, I’ll work with ya on shipping, as best I can. Pick up is possible, if you are close enough to make it worth your while.

    First pot full of backyard goodness: orange, red, purple, and yellow tomatoes, a small hot and one large sweet Chile, 1\4 garlic clove, medium onion. Oregano, prickly pear balsamic reduction, extra virgin olive irl. Dice all solids, apply heat. Wait 4-6 hrs, chow down. swerved from my intent to make sauce. Cooked a pound of mixed beans in a pressure cooker. Browned two pounds of sweet Italian sausage. Threw it all together, simmered, and will call it paella. Changed my mind: will call it delicious. Me Gusta......

    When people don't hear "one voice", they throw in the towel. The only thing he really needed to do was find a single K-55 off of eBay. He could have done the network thing later. Like I told someone else lately, the pearl-clutching over capacitors kind of needs to stop, there just isn't any real point to it. Over the years, and not just on this message board, claims related to varying sound and performance have been all over the map. Unfortunately, even Klipsch hasn't been very consistent with this. I have never bought into the placebo thing. I would have absolutely no problem sending someone to JEM if they emailed me and said, "I just want them to sound like they did when I first got them." There are also people looking for something different, and there is a market for that too. Do they just want their speaker fixed, or are they looking for something different? So, we should try and discern what they are looking for and then point them in that direction. I try to view these threads now as a casual observer, and to be honest, it just looks like noise.
