  1. Nope, it's a pour over like the A-10 from what I've read. It appears to be a home version of the commercial A-10. After reading about this the other day i went looking myself, I found the same thing, the way it put the water over the beans, how it warms it to be ready fast is the same, the only difference I could find was the price and the A-10 is commercial and will probably out last the owner. After reading about all the different models i got tired and started loosing track of comparing features and just decided to stick with my old Drip-O-Lator, it has no features, buttons or even a plug and requires no filters. It was my grandfathers so it will probably outlast me also. Just brewed up a pot of DD and I've used Bunn for most of my adult life, so the last year or so, , but really, it's great to have coffee in about 3 minutes and I get about 8-10 years out of my $100 home version and I can live with that for the speed.

  2. Just watched the latest update from one of our forum members and am still overly impressed with the amount of detail that went into making this HT extremely clean. MANY hours went into the cable management alone. Even the carpet has been vacuumed. Well done sir!

  3. Bacardi / OJ Why oh why would a Generac 7500E portable generator not be able to charge it's own starting battery. Absurd :wacko: Oh sure, you can plug a charger into a generator outlet but seriously? Even a lawn mower charges it's own battery. I gave $400 for one with 1.1 hours on it so............

  5. Suns out here in the Arkansas River Valley. No I just have to get myself out. Haven't had breakfast or drugs yet. They seem to go together at this age. Saw where some doc on NBC said Prince's death had to be caused by drugs. Hell, I take a handful of drugs every morning. A real ***** in a year year how to figure out how to pay for all these drugs when I have to be on a Medicare plan. Especially when you have a chronic disease for which there is no cure and is inherited. Mom died at 65 from it, Dad will turn 90 in July. Go figure. Met Zim in Joplin yesterday and handed over the Beta Sound M-100 (the original CornScala). Hope he enjoys them and look forward to hearing what he has done to them when we meet in Hope. It is the only pair I have run across, so they are rarer than hen's teeth. The mid range looks similar to the K-400 but is a Phillip Clements designed horn. T-35 tweets and dust cap vented 15" woofer. Glad they went to a good home. Doubt there will be another pair show up anywhere. Need to gut a Motorola low boy console today. Got the biggest heaviest receiver I have ever seen in a console. It had a truly wonderful sound. 7' long with a Dual turntable, three way speaks. Just taking up too much room. Plan on building a cabinet for the receiver. Massive heatsinks on the back.

  7. Morning... Coffee is brewing as I type .... Another pot of DD through the ol $19.95 Mr. Coffee..... We had a few Cuisinart's over the years. They last about 3 or 4 years then just kinda stop working. The coffee doesn't get real hot.....maybe it was the heating element??? Last year another our Cuisinarts took a dump, we went to the store to look for another maker. It was a hasty purchase........didn't do any research..... So were standing there looking at all the coffee makers for almost an hour......opening the boxes checking them out.......were like WTF..... Finally The BOSS grabbed the $19.95 Mr.Coffee maker and said "this will do for now" ........... That was almost a year ago.........still working good I don't consider myself a coffee "connoisseur".....that's like asking me if I'm a "audiofile" ............ I like a good cup of coffee and good sounding tunes.. I know what tastes and sounds like shitt... Over the years we have "improved" our coffee......The biggest for us was grinding our beans right before we brew it.. Twenty some years ago a mechanic buddy of mine gave me a coffee bean grinder... I'm like dude what the he!! is this ..... He tells me what is is and the "right" way to use it....He was a coffee connoisseur..... So we got some beans and started grinding our coffee right before brewing.... Yea It tasted sooooo much better.... Well that grinder finally wore out and we started looking for a replacement..... That's when we found the Cuisinart coffee makers that ground the beans for you... and you could set a timer to grind the beans and start the brewing... Oh ya that's the one we wanted... I remember the 1st time we set it all up.... we were so excited.... that morning the alarm went off and a few seconds later we could hear the Cuisinart grinding the beans from the kitchen.... The BOSS and I were laying in bed laughing and giggling saying this is the shitt.... then a few minutes later we could smell the coffee coming into our room... OH yea it's time... Man we thought that was the best... and it was cool... Ya Know 26 years ago I didn't even drink coffee..... and at the time I didn't own any Klipsch.... I had Bose 901's .......The BOSS got me started on coffee and she's the one that found our LaScala's in the Sunday paper Gonna be rolling out to shop in a few minutes..... will be working on the Pilot some more..... It should be running this afternoon....ahhhh that feeling of getting ready to turn that key..... thinking to myself......did I miss anything The Honda god will be with me OK check-in-later MKP :-)

  13. Went by the surplus store at the University of California Santa Barbara and noticed a pair of EAW KF 650z PA speakers I asked the guy how much and he said $30 each and said they were blown hmm I didn't ask anymore questions other than I'll take them . Got them home and noticed they were in tri map mode so if a speaker cable was hooked up only LF would play. Long story short they are in perfect working order . Hit them with a coat of paint they look great going to have the grills powder coated .

  15. Does anyone else hide their face when going through the new facial recognition cameras being put up on all the Interstate highways? The latest is on westbound I-40 at the new Oklahoma weigh station just across the Arkansas border. Two different stations of cameras to snap pics of everyone in any size vehicle. About a dozen cameras in total. The flash was very noticeable the first couple of months. They have adjusted it down so it doesn't catch your eye as much. The plan of the US Government is to have a facial recognition database of every man, woman, and child in the US. Just really irritates me when every person is treated as a criminal. I first came across these 5-7 years ago at the so called "interior" border check points in New Mexico and Texas, some as much as 200 miles into the US from the Mexican border. Now, it appears they are going to be placed everywhere in the US, according to sources. Big Brother is here!

  18. My thoughts as well. Small appliances are like tools. I've bought cheap and middle of the road ones over the years. I always end up buying them again when they wear out or break. I try to buy decent quality stuff now. It's a little more up front but you normally only buy them once.

  22. How about "What I ordered today"... So I sold my Belles and Cornwalls and with the funds ordered a pair of P37s in espresso. I had P39s and they were way to big. These should be perfect. Driving them with a C2500 tube preamp and B&K Reference 200.2 amp. If I need a sub which is likely I have a sweet little Martin Logan Depth.

  24. I am tempted, just because I know both on the inspection label. I tend to keep those speakers with labels signed by people I know. Ricky Fawcett also signed my Klipschorns. One of my best friends signed my Belles. Way more than I think they are worth, but nostalgia has always trumped my my cheapness on buying. I bought a black fiberglass single several years ago that was used as a stage monitor. Gave it away to Dave Miller at Speakerworks since he also had a single that matched. Used that single as a center channel for a few years between my Belles before that.

  32. Most advisors, including Audyssey, recommend setting all main speakers and surrounds to SMALL, and letting the subwoofer do the work, for all the reasons given in the posts above. I've tried both, repeatedly. REW tests reveal absolutely no phase cancellation on LARGE with my particular set up. That was a surprise, and probably is a rarity. Nevertheless, for movies, I finally decided on setting all mains and surrounds to SMALL, and the sub to 80 Hz. That is fine for most movies. For some music (two channel), I set the sub for 40 Hz, or turn it off completely. If I turn the sub off, I set the mains for LARGE. The reason for my experimenting with LARGE is that my Klipschorns have a lot tighter bass than my sub, down to about 40 Hz. If anyone wants to try some of their speakers on LARGE, the subwoofer will (in most cases) receive no signal from the channels set for LARGE unless the "Bass Setting" ("subwoofer mode") in the AVR is also set to "LFE+Main" or "Double Bass," in which case the deep bass will come out of both the speakers set for LARGE and the subwoofer -- but there may be phase cancellation. With most (or all?) AVRs, the true LFE (deep bass sound effects, rather than music, put there by filmmakers) will still come out of the sub with either setting, unless the sub is set for "No," or "Off" in the AVR. Beware this latter setting, though, because with some AVRs the LFE can be mixed into the main front channels, and true LFE can be outrageous, and can blow out ordinary speakers. Since true LFE tracks can go down to 10 Hz and are often very loud, it can also blow out some subwoofers. I asked someone at Klipsch customer service if my RSW15 subwoofer had overload protection (something that would switch it off for a moment during maximum bass assault). He said, "Yes, but some people can blow out anything."

  39. I have a 2002 Ram 1500 5.9L with the short bed and the quad cab. It was my first (and only) truck so I have nothing to compare it to. It has 162,000 miles on it and has been only about average for reliability. Rust has started to become a major issue, especially around the rear wheel wells and underneath the bed. The things I like: the strong motor, the ride quality, and the looks of the thing. The things I don't like: cheap interior materials, the quirky auto transmission, and the myriad electrical issues I've had to deal with. Stereo is the optional factory Infinity system but I replaced the front 6x9s to JBLs a few years ago for added low-end "oomph". The ultimate question: Would I buy another one? Probably not. The Tundra looks like the truck to beat these days...

  40. I think those are all points well taken. I think one key issue I overlooked is that his fan base was predominantly female. Apparently, he is one of those artists that one gender "got" and the other didn't. I think if you asked women currently in their mid 40s to 50s what they thought about the news and the amount of coverage the might have an entirely different point of view. That and the "mystery" that is going to exist until an official cause of death is announced will keep the story simmering for awhile. The funeral arrangements will be another component that keeps it swirling.

  41. His talent and popularity are unquestioned. Nevertheless, I'm 67, so his fan base is of a generation younger than my generation, but older than that of my 26 year-old son. Very few of his "hits" are familiar to either of us. The media do seem to be going a bit overboard. One need only watch the Superbowl show or the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame video, to be convinced of his talent.

To a point, they do. In the end, I was happier with the the Khorn / Belle arrangement that I already was using. Until I A / B them, I didn't know what I had or was missing.

  43. The SM Heresy's are worth a bit more because or rarity. There is another pair for sale right now for $800 but in black and they are rough: http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-KLIPSCH-HERESY-H-SM-SPEAKER-/131772724462?hash=item1eae4434ee:g:HeYAAOSw7NNUKigc. Fat chance he will sell them for that, but there are 3 peeps watching them. There are 39 watching these. I like them because of the woofers. That is rare. I have seen them before, but usually the woofers are black. Maybe it's because they are decorators.
