    I know this is sooo last month but here are some of my eclipse photos. I like this early shot where lunar terrain can be seen silhouetted against the sun. Mercury can be seen in the lower left of the frame at totality. Edge shot near the end of totality. Diamond Ring effect at the end of totality.

    There, I just liked you. BTW, you're doing OK here - you have a 104% like vs post ratio and I"m at a pathetic 9%. Maybe I'll start a thread just asking members to like me.

    Just got a new Nikon D850 and I'm testing the image quality of my old lenses - several of them just don't measure up with the new camera. This is not an especially good photo but I took this in testing my old 58mm f1.2 Noct Nikkor ais (manual) lens. I'm happy to see that my favorite lens still holds it's own.

    I can only say one thing........................ABX box. Double blind listening with all conditions controlled to 0.1 db will put away any argument. Problem with audiophiles is they would rather hang on to their technically false belief system rather than hear the truth for themselves.

    I work at a center that works with folks with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and one of our doctors, emailed all of us this link to a very cool video. It's about 12 minutes long, but I was amazed at the content. Enjoyable and thought provoking, extremely well done. Bruce

    When i was in the Coast Guard and stationed on a ship in Michigan, one of my shipmates invited me to his parent’s place for a weekend. It was in Lafayette, Indiana. I don’t remember much about it though. We went to a huge party and it was the 70s and I would take anything given to me -- i do remember at one point, being SO messed up that i wondered what in the world was given to me. Actually, I’d have to look at a map to see what part of the state Lafayette is in.

    I second that! I have only had my 1982 Klipschorns for a little over 2 years and have been to several "High End" Audio shops in Phoenix etc. over that same time and have heard $80,000 speakers with mega Mc gear, when we get home and turn on our simple/humble MC30's, C22 reissue and the Klipschorns, there is nothing we are missing...Matter of fact it sounds better that what we heard. Just my ears & opinion.

    funny thing. Years ago, my eldest sister and her husband went to visit friends of hers. When they returned i asked if they enjoyed the trip. She said she did; but, her husband didn’t. My sister’s friend’s husband didn’t like my brother-in-law for some reason and that drove my Brother-in-Law crazy. He couldn’t figure out why in the world someone wouldn’t like him. Except for the part where he has absolutely no filters and says whatever he feels like saying -- he was a fun guy to be around and one of the biggest party animals I’ve ever met. Me ... i’m more messed up than that. I rarely give people the chance not to like me. For the record, I can count on one hand all the people that i know don’t like me...and that’s meeting people for 57 years. The odds are in my favor that i’ll be liked; but, still i hesitate. Probably a clinical name for it; like “nuts” or something. A few people in recent years that know a little about me have made the comment that they couldn’t believe that after the stuff i saw and went through as a kid, that nobody took me for counseling. Heck, i never even heard of counseling until i was in my 20s. I don’t think it was that popular in the 60s/70s --maybe it was; but, it didn’t reach me. So, you’re stuck with this messed up dude on your forum; but, don’t worry, I don’t ask for things and I stay out of everybody’s business.

    The Klipsch LaScala is arguably the most versatile speaker that Klipsch has ever produced, even though it lacks the extreme bottom-end performance of the Klipschorn, but that can easily be solved with a good subwoofer: 1. Fist of all, it does NOT REQUIRE a corner like the Klipschorn does, although the LaScala will perform better if corners are available for it. 2. LaScalas can easily be taken outside for outdoor parties and such and that is where they REALLY SHINE! Nothing beats a pair of LaScalas outdoors (unless you have an MWM-based system, instead!). 3. The LaScala is identically voiced to the Klipschorn, with the exception that the K-horns goes down to around 32Hz, whereas the LaScala starts to roll off severely on its bottom-end between 45-60Hz. Many see no need whatsoever to even go the subwoofer route with LaScalas, unless they are using them as part of a home theater system. 4. Because the LaScala is FULLY-horn-loaded, just as the Khorn is, it is highly directional. Because the LaScala needs no corners, then you can be blasting them for an outdoor party, and watch as people in FRONT of them are screaming to carry on a conversation, while those standing BEHIND them are able to carry on a conversation at normal voice levels. 5. LaScalas were DESIGNED to be used as stage and theater speakers, so that would make them much more ideal for your desire to also use them for PA purposes. So, my suggestion for you would be the LaScalas. Even if you choose to add a subwoofer to them, the total cost would be much less than a pair of K-horns would cost you, with the added benefit of the versatility of the LaScalas for speaker placement reasons. As for the mid-range issues that some folks feel a need to drop the mid-range back a couple of decibels....that generally has much more to do with the crossover network version the particular LaScalas came with (a few different versions over its lifespan have been used) than anything else...combined with placement and room issues...and, of course, the upstream components being used to feed the LaScalas play a major role in that "issue". One caveat, though, when using LaScalas for PA duty, ESPECIALLY when feeding using a microphone, you will have to find that perfect happy spot for the amp volume control, AND the microphone being used for voice...because with highly efficient speakers like the LaScala, even the distance from mouth to mic makes a huge difference in what comes out of the speakers. So don't overdo it and end up blowing the tweeter(s) or the woofer by pushing too much power into them when using a mic. I would opt for low power amp for that usage, and use it only for that usage, while using something else for music playback. There are reasons why so many former and current Klipsch employees end up/ended up with LaScalas in the house and never got the K-horns, besides the issue of availability of corners for the K-horns. LaScala VERSATILITY is right at the top of that list of reasons. One other thing....even when many finally opt for Klipschorns to replace their LaScalas in use for their PRIMARY listening environment...you will find that very many of these people KEEP their LaScalas in another system within their home or for other uses, simply due to the versatility of the LaScala.

    He tripped over his own foot and went down on his right knee in an awkward way. The one which really looked bad was Beckham's broken leg. That was a rough replay to watch in slo-mo.
