    Back in 1980 i dragged a pair to the desert near 29palms, Kenwoods and a Sansui i picked up before leaving the service. The sound produced was not worth the work setting up the system, car stereo would likely sound better. Never ran sound in the Desert after that.

    We made it just fine, when Kevin breaks down he does it in style, I have never broken down with such amenities, ever. Your right the tow truck was as big as the bus, I think it could have pulled the bus down the road with the bus laying on it's side, and at $350 an hour it can add up fast.

    Keeping with the same theme, St. Louis Cathedral, 1727 was the first building, there was a fire in 1788, they started to rebuild in 1789 and was not completed until 1794. In 1829 an organ was imported and in 1825 Francisco Zapari, an Italian painter, was employed at a fee of $1,855 to decorate the interior of the church and its three altars.

    Heck even RF-7s can be made to sound decent if you take a little time and set them up right

    Wow, so many great responses! Thanks for all the options and sorry I haven't replied until now. Been busy with work the last couple days and I've had some problems trying to reply to multiple posts on this forum lately. Anyway, here goes... That's a nice looking amp, and I've always wanted to try out NAD gear. Have to see if I can make the budget work though, it's pretty tight now. Definitely interested in the M2200's, since I planned to get an Outlaw 975 eventually. I just wish there was a phono input on the 975, but adding an outboard preamp is an option I guess. This is what I love about asking questions here...I'd never even heard of Acurus but now it's on the radar and knowing that many of you have enjoyed them makes me feel better about trying out something new. The 3 channel might be a good option for me since I only plan to run 3.1 for the next couple years. You're an instigator aren't you . That 1.5t is definitely on the table, but those big beauties are probably way over budget for me Nice amp, I will keep it in mind. Curious to know more about the ALK's...are those upgraded drivers? I can't find any info on them after a couple quick Google searches.

    Heard them at a Dealer many moons ago.... and I remember them sounding excellent on the demonstration recordings at the time. Anyone thinking of buying them should do some current research especially about repair options and issues. http://www.apogeeacoustics.com/buyingguide.html for what it's worth stereophile review with specs. http://www.stereophile.com/floorloudspeakers/911/#Tgmeht7rxduqeFs4.97 miketn

    Gotta grab me some of those... I never got sick eating anything from street vendors, but I have since read an article that said some street vendors get their cooking oil from runoff and sewer water that they filter. It COULD be a rumor.

    Just got back home, it was an adventure but the people made it really fun. We drove to the Harmon"s house and rode up to Hope with them in the bus, it doesn't get much easier or nicer. There was a small problem, a small line going from the radiator to the reservoir came loose at the radiator letting it lose fluid and it started to run hot and then alarms were going off. The problem was you can not see even close to where the problem was without removing the giant air filter and it still is almost impossible to get to, 400 hp Cummins mounted in the rear of a 40' bus. So Kevin called an extra large size tow truck and they brought it to the Freightliner dealer an hour away which was closed already. We camped in the parking lot until morning, although we were not roughing it, AC, refrigerator and Sat Tv, everything working on the bus we just couldn't move it. Kevin always tows his 1 ton truck so we got in it and went out to eat and hung out later in the bus. The next morning Freightliner fixed us up, and checked everything else out and we hit he road to Hope, we all worked each day moving things from the plant into the museum, and parking at Rodney's at night.

    Exactly...... More mass...... My IR 244 impact would break em loose @ 130 psi when I first got it. That was 20 plus years ago, that gun is worn out.....but I put that socket on it and has no problem breaking them loose MKP :-)

    Hey Carl have you or any of your techs seen these sockets? They are BAD A$$...... I got this 19mm a few months backs......they have been back order for ever..... I use it for the harmonic balancers bolts on the Honda crank shafts..... you can not break them free with a impact and a regular socket. Over the years I've had Honda's towed to the shop from other shops that couldn't get the bolt to break free. Before I got it I would have to use the Honda special tool to hold the harmonic balancer and use a 1/2" breaker bar with a 3 1/2 foot cheater on it (old floor jack handle)to break the bolt free. Some of my Honda buds have bought 3/4" impact guns just for those PIA bolts. MKP :-)

    Carl's system is the best home theater implementation that I've heard, and it is also great for 2-channel music.

    The difference between the La Scala and Klipschorn: It's really hard to make buying decisions on speakers we haven't heard. I know I get speaker lust sometimes and feel like I just HAVE to have a speaker because of the way people talk about them. Fast forward to my LS and Khorn purchases. I bought my LS because of speaker lust. I used them for a few months and got to know their sound. Then Mustang Guy found some Khorns which somehow ended up in my living room. I sold the LS to fund the Khorns, so I heard both speakers back-to-back time-wise (not in an A/B listening test). THE BOTTOM LINE to me, with my ears in my living room is that both speakers sound about the same at lower/mid volume. They really do and both speakers are pleasing. What really separates the two is HIGHER VOLUMES. The Khorn has such a strong low end you really don't need a subwoofer. The LS w/sub sounds about the same to my ears. As a stand-alone speaker the Khorn is more versatile in terms of low-end grunt. I also like the aesthetics because the Khorns tuck neatly into the corners at the edge of my peripheral vision so I don't really "see" them when watching TV. The La Scala is more "front and center" visually and frankly is probably easier to integrate as a L/R into a multiple speaker solution (7.1, 5.1, 3.x) because of placement options.

    With the distortion situation, I think it is kind of frequency dependent. The lower the frequency, the less sensitive we are to it. There was actually a test set up with a large number of enthusiasts, and it was proven that when music was playing, sub-bass frequencies below 40 hz literally had to be around 100% distortion before anybody noticed that something was off. In the meantime, an ultimax has less than 3% distortion even down to like 33 hz, even with just one doing a 117 db sweep. Spread that same load out over four drivers and we're literally talking about 1.2% distortion over typical music frequencies with each one pumping out 105 db. You may be able to tell the difference between them and a horn, but it ain't the distortion that's giving it away.

    The new RP-250S would be fine with them. If you have the budget that you say, stay away from the R-28F, they have an aluminum tweeter that gets punked by the 1.75" titanium compression driver in the RF-7ii's. Just not even close.

    Not a bad set up, but my HT never sounded quite right with a Hersey center between Cornwalls, and I was not satisfied until I added a center Cornwall. That was a very noticable improvement. Three Cornwalls in front with Heresy rears makes for a very good HT, especially in a small-ish room.

    See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audio_crossover#Classification_based_on_components "Black" is an interesting audiophile meme. I don't know what it means. I do know that the use of active crossovers eliminates a set of components between your drivers and your amplifiers--components that change their behavior with age and with load (i.e., voice coil and passive component heating). Amplifiers on the other hand like to be direct coupled to drivers; they have much more trouble with passive reactance inserted into their load loop. I've never seen a hi-fi sound reproduction system without amplifiers...or acoustic drivers.

    Verticals are special, another option is to buy a Cornscala box and motorboard kit from Bob, and put the verticals back to stock. I am all about upgrades or sidewaysgrades, but I don't think I would chop up a vert. HB

    All Heritage product should have sequential serial numbers. The label on the packing carton should even call out the serial number of the speaker that it's matched with (serial # XXXXXX1, match with serial # XXXXXX2). The speakers are grain-matched. In other words, the left speaker is virtually a mirror image of the right speaker. This is why the speakers have sequential serial numbers - so they can be kept together (easily) through the factory, as well as after they leave the factory. One reason why this is important is because real wood veneer (especially exotic wood veneers) will vary dramatically in grain pattern, texture & color. Matching the wood grain makes a distinct improvement in the perceived beauty of the product. Kerry

    You are lucky you didn't get food poisoning, lol. That would have made for some interesting sounds after you left the restaurant.
