    Spots was put down last year just shy of 20 years old. If there was music playing she would jump right up on the arm of my chair and enjoy the music right along side of me every time. Never had i have a pet actually enjoy music.

    Pictures dtel? We want to see what she looks like Don't let Christy see this. Tuckered out this morning. Spent yesterday removing carpet and pad from several rooms at LF's new place. Had to cut it up for pick up by sanitation guys. More to do today. Later met my bud from LA at Captain Bill's.....a bar with 9 volleyball courts. We had a couple of beers and watched college girls play a few matches Concerned about Steve. Have sent him two PMs and no response. Not like him. Well worker bees.....go out there and make us proud. Where is Luther? Miss his photos. Gary..... !

    We had a chinchilla, Max, that loved live trombone music. Being nocturnal, the only sure-fire way to entice Max from his hiding place during the day was playing our son's trombone. It had to be live; recorded trombone music had no effect. Live saxophone got no response. Eventually, just the sound of opening the case would get Max's attention. FYI, it takes 300 chinchillas to make a coat. Pause . That's because their hands are so tiny. Nancy cringed each of the many times I told that joke, but it always worked.

    Thank you for your response. I read that thread and I do not believe that I have the same issue. My sub is two pronged electrical. I've tried connecting it to several different circuits within the home, including circuits where other subs in the house are working fine. I've got 4 other working subs without any buzzing noises. The problem happens with and without a signal being passed into the sub. The sub's other functions work properly and are totally independent on the noise. The noise happens regardless of any position of any dial and does not change amplitude or sound in any manner regardless if you have a source hooked up or how loud you have the gain. Your amp is in need of repair then.

    Unfortunately, this isn't a bad idea. Later on though, I'd slip some education in as to what you want. My experience has been when you see a cut of meat with those lines in it, those lines are typically tough. In a NY strip, as I understand, it means they come from the ends of the loin (or whatever they come from) and are some of the connective tissue holding it to whatever it attaches to. Irrespective of what they do, the I 100% always avoid those lines. You can rub your finger across them (perpendicular) and feel the ridge. I was at a butcher shop once and the butcher smiled, pointing at a NY strip with these lines in them....saying they were a great cut of meat. I said no thank you. (I spent 5 years cooking at a steak house in high school / college)

    Pass 30.5 with K-Horns should be more than enough power and I am sure the pass specs out vs other good amps. Since Vinyl and Digital yes you need a pre-amp. I would look at the SN and the performance of the phono section. I like tone controls and loudness and high and low filters etc. I get best result with a stand alone EQ connected as tape in tape out. I use the old school analog EQs to great effect, the newer digital ones the conversion rates are so high that the quantization error should be minimal or inaudible. A lot of people like the DBX unit, but there are lots of choices, ones that EQ the system and rooms are nice then you can tweak the sound to your preference and make your own presets. If the pre amp has no phono section, or a weak one, there are lots and lots of good stand alone phono sections for not much coin. A lot of people are satisfied with EMO. If you are not sure you might post the voltage and impedance numbers for the amp and pre amp RCA line jacks and ask for feedback. The system only sounds as good as the worst component. Price is a factor but not the primary one in sound or quality. As to the room and furniture: hard surfaces bad, soft absorbent surfaces like rugs, curtains, stuffed furniture, books good.

    The below is a roll puncher belonging to Wolfgang Heisig, Burgstraße 34 04720 Döbeln, Deutschland beginning it's two week job of punching Nancarrow's Studies 3a, 3b, 3c, 3d, 3e and 21 "Canon X" for delivery to the Regional Music Heritage Center in Texarkana. They probably won't make it in time for the Hope Gathering, but shortly thereafter we intend to roll the M&W AMPICO player out to the street and premiere these for the first time in his hometown. I am VERY much looking forward to this! I'll post when we have a date and any members nearby can perhaps join us. Dave

    i thought you had a nice tv stand and tv was wall mounted? Been a long time since seeing that little visual of your place. I think that was yours if I remember right. Lol. Who knows. But yes it's adjustable. And looks gorgeous sitting on spikes. I would highly suggest finding a way to get it off the floor. No sense in spending that amount of money and not making the most out of it.

    I have installed GFCI outlets in lieu of grounded outlets in old houses with no easy way to ground, like the metal shielding, in order to provide 3 prongs and some protection. GFCI outlets contain decals that must be adhered to every outlet that does not have a common ground in order to meet code. The label says "NO EQUIPMENT GROUND". Lots of people don't know about that. Thanks for bringing it up.

    I've never heard the Palladium, so i won't pretend to know how they are. All I know is that after all of the series (Reference, Epic, Legend, KG through the Chorus2, etc) the Heritage Series is still being made and sold. Though they need tweaked, they're still benchmarks. GLWS

    Looks like a cheap "country ribs" cut, without the bone. Dry rub and smoke for two hours. Lot's of waste from the fat, but not bad tasting. Get a bunch more if you are going through the trouble of firing up the smoker. Vinegar-based sauce if you are a city slicker and need the extra moisture and haven't learned to enjoy smoked meat without a sauce, which I somehow doubt applies to you.

    3.1 is fine OP... rears really add spatial qualities and movement, but is NOT a necessity. You need a sub to produce low frequency effects and a center channel will really broaden the front stage and make pin point the action and dialog. 2.1 is also a really great option and if you can add a receiver that has multiple surround settings, that professing will help out spatially and with down mixing. I thought I wouod never go above 3.1 myself, but now that I have a 5.1 system I am very happy I made the change. I personally love 5.1 music also, though selection is a bit skimpy.

    I think having a speaker that is also interesting to look at from a design perspective would be very cool... la scala, either the home version or the commercial version would be an extremely nice additional to your facility. They dont really cost an arm and a leg either... 25x40 is about the size of my listening space at home...

    Question - would you also lose your angle settings for your Atmos channels - aren't those set in YPAO-R.S.C.? I'm using a miniDSP(non DIRAC) for my subwoofer EQ. I am not sure... I know one other user that is using 2 Dirac DDRC-88As and he said it was better than using EQ from his AVR. That to me is the biggie. I have my speakers pointed directly down from the ceiling. We will see how it works out.

    The shakers are fun because..... 1) No matter what subs you have, Jurassic World just went from a silly fun movie to an experience. The dinosaur stomps are incredible. 2) At lower volumes, I can simulate the sub effects without having to blast the system, or the sub. 3) Unless you have a sub that can slam all the way down below 20...the shakers can and will simulate those frequencies through vibration. 4) I'm fairly certain that unless you have a massive sub array at full volume...you cannot really fully reproduce all the tactile sensation these create. 5) They are inexpensive. Using an old amp, I have 4 setup, cost was the shakers, a pair of FMODS, speaker wire and about 5 hours. 6) They have their own volume/shake control. At low AVR volume, you can set these to either be a very subtle addition to the sub, or slam. At high volume, you again have the choice of complimenting the sub (not distracting you but enhancing the experience) or turning them up for the big experience. 7) The shakers actually do a pretty good job of starting and stopping with the sub. There is little lag that I noticed. 8) While testing there was a time I thought the sub was on, yet it wasn't. All that bass was coming through the shakers, and at low volumes it was good enough I was fooled. Yes really. And yes, I am new so you likely wouldn't be. 9) Video games may be the single most impressive application. If you have used a modern gaming system with a shock or rumble controller, you understand what shake is. Except you don't. the bass shakers are so much more advanced, and the vibration so much more visceral, you will laugh at your controller shaking from that moment on. Call of Duty is a sick game as is everything else with shakers on...absolutely stunning. The shakers are limited with regard to.... 1) Audio fidelity. You have high grade speakers working with a vibrating speaker/shaker. With music especially, it needs to be turned down to a subtle effect or off. They are pretty good at mimicking the sub as far as starts an stops, but depending upon the content, it sounds almost perfect...or sometimes slightly muddy. 2) Location/integration. At any significant volume for the shakers, they create their own sound, no matter how much may be vibration. This sound mingles with the sound from the sub itself, and thus there is a form of a near-field sub changing the sound dynamics. This is significant, but depends upon how much LFE there is in a given movie or show. 3) The dayton ones I bought I would guess are comparable to the Aura's and the blue ones that cost 2x as much. These are all inexpensive compared to a buttkicker or the like. So if you want the entire couch to bounce up and down, the basic ones aren't enough. But being honest, I cannot imagine wanting that much bounce. And I'm a pretty hardcore gamer and movie nut. How do you "calibrate" your shaker setup? Well technically you can't, there is no "right" setting. But you can in fact run test tones with the sub on and off, and then the shakers on and off, and get a sense of how the two work together...what volume the shakers are subtle, what volume they are pronounced, at what volume do they overtake the sub. It's really like most things that can't be calibrated...a matter of trial and error. If you have a DSP-enabled amp, that will help as far as smoothing out the response. But I ask again, what does that mean, exactly? Is "right" a perfect smooth curve or experience? Personally I think if you have a DSP it would help (as derrick suggested), but without one I don't see a real need to get one for the cost. How do you set them up? I'll save that for future posts, and will take some pictures of mine for anybody who wants the reference.

    Nice detour, but I can't overemphasize the phase coherent approach and new found micro detail and clarity of multiple entry horns, however and whoever creates them. They simply sound better than anything else I tried.

    Many years ago we had in our family a 72' Roadrunner in Violet Purple. Pistol grip 4-Speed 383 Magnum bored .030 over, Holly 750 dbl. pumper, headers, Thrush mufflers, some outrageous cam and pistons, etc...............but no radio.....couldn't hear it anyway. But it was on the list of our local police dept. to "harass this car". Very similar to this one:

    Kinda sorta mine, just not official yet, I'm in line to inherit it. 1929 Model A Ford. My grandfather bought it for $50 to transport potatoes. They would dig them up out of the ground and let them sit there, then put the top back on this and let it idle with no driver through the field, while people on both sides would throw potatoes in it. When full they would drive it to a barn where they would coat it with something white, maybe lime, and put them inside which would preserve them through the winter. He later restored it. If you are a movie fan, you can see it in "A League Of Their Own" with Madonna, Tom Hanks, and Geena Davis. When the ugly girl in the gym hits a home run out of the window, it pans to the parking lot and you can see it there. Also when Geena Davis is being driven to the dance, there is a 12 year old boy driving it, and he basically asks Geena to screw him in the back seat. My uncle was crouched down in the rear floor board ready to jump up if this boy lost control of it. He was supposedly in the crowd behind a fence as an extra as well. They paid him and his buddies $500 a day, each, for many days for the rights to use their cars. They were all members of the Evansville Old Tyme Auto Club.

    Maybe I'm just mean, but I don't think I'd want to open up my new speakers to let someone borrow my crossover lol. Either way you decide to go, I wouldn't expect to hear a major difference. They will sound a little different, but they're still virtually the same speaker. Everyone has different taste. I know if my 7's came back sounding more like 83's I would not be happy. But... some would. That's why I would advise trying to have a listen for yourself if possible. Then again.. If you take apart your 7's and send Dean your crossover. Your system will be down for a couple weeks I would guess. You'll be so happy just to get it up and running again that you'll love em! Me personally, I bet after two weeks I wouldn't be able to tell you if it made a difference or not. Without an instant A/B my mind plays tricks on me.
