    Haven't read through the last pages but wanted to report we are okay....LF, Jake, and me. Just got electricity yesterday and internet this morning. Not much time to chat now, over seeing the removal of a tree from LF's place (by crane). The road to my house is still impassable but I walked in a few times. No trees on house but trees down in the yard. More later.......... Tarheel

    They all ignore me and just go off and do their own thing. They refuse to jump in ice cold water and bring back something I have shot. They are also extremely difficult to herd. Travis

    A lonely 70-year-old widow decided that it was time to marry again. She put an ad in the local newspaper that read: “Husband wanted! Must be in my age group, must not beat me, must not run around on me and must still be good in bed. All applicants please apply in person.” The following day, she heard the doorbell. Much to her dismay, she opened the door to see a gray-haired gentleman sitting in a wheelchair. He had no arms or legs. “You’re not really asking me to consider you, are you?” the widow asked: “Just look at you — you have no legs!” The old gent smiled: “Therefore, I cannot run around on you!” “You don’t have any arms either!” she snorted. Again, the old man smiled: “Therefore, I can never beat you!” She raised an eyebrow and asked intently: “Are you still good in bed?” The old man leaned back, beamed a big smile and said: “I rang the doorbell, didn’t I?”

    An OSU player went back to his apartment after the game and sat on the poarch. A TCU grad came up on his porch. How did the OSU player get the TCU grad off the porch? Paid him for the pizza, he, he. That same weekend the OSU player met a guy from MSU and ask him how do you spell Mississippi. The MSU guy ask, the state or the river.......

    I thought we should all send a message - Hey Tarheel, then 4265 messages would overload the server, and lock up the east coast, and then the internet would begin a search for Chuck, Hey, have you seen this guy ? then stuff would be regular after he replied.... no strange post's... maybe lol

    SCHIIIIIIIT! I'm pretty much amazed at what happened today so far. Mani delivered by FedEx's driver who lugged the PrimaLuna in for me. Promised him lighter days then and so far so good. Ha! 30 minutes later (if that) I was up and running. Dipsticks set right? Check! Cables right? Check! Power ON before hitting the amp? Check! All plugged in? Check! Dust cover off? Check! OK now what in the H@&L do I play? I seriously just STOOD there looking TOTALLY stupid! My first system was in the late 60's or so and I ran ESS Heil speakers (Beatles something), early 80's it was Infinity Reference Standards (The Wall was just released), now FINALLY followed my first love La Scala's and PrimaLuna tubes? Yea, ok... They ALL say tubes are the Schiit's so let's see... Walked over and pulled the FIRST album that laid there calling my name on top of the pile I've been sorting... Don Henly "Building the Perfect Beast" cause I thought Sunset Grill should sound great... Dropped the Karma cartridge on the Linn, turned up the volume and flopped on the couches sweet spot... Yea, sports fans the old guys jaw totally dropped! One side was enough so then grabbed Phil Collins, amazed then it was time to break out the #1 LP on the planet forever... No not Moby Grape but Floyd's Dark Side... Just finished a Magical Mystery Tour, which it has been... Now it's Tedeschi Trucks "Revelator" side 1 w/"Midnite in Harlem" on it...Don't worry @Deang I'm being good to those sweet networks you built me. You tolerated my insanity so well and I've honestly tried to be a good listener! lolol Good God guys I don't know where to start with the Thank You's! Blessed to call you ALL my friends! BTW Susan Tedeschi has a voice.... Yay me and Thank You ALL again!

    I appreciate that. There are a few places I might resist relocating to based on local cuisine. Any place that calls tri tip bbq is suspect in my book. That white sauce in northern alabama could be another do not go. Sweet bbq in Georgia might not keep me away, but it doesn't help. I can't say much for that bizarre mid atlantic region, except I can guarantee you that what they call chili in Cincinnati is an abomination, and a daily reminder of it might drive me to second amendment remedies.

    Why not now? Because now large speaker sales have only 20% of the sales volume that they had 35 years ago. if you don’t believe me, look at what Klipsch is doing. Look at what most of the brick and mortar stores, and the big box stores, are doing. They only bring back a model if it will increase overall sales, generate profit, and be sustainable for a decade or more. the Chorus would scavenge sales from both the Fortes and Cornwall’s. Klipsch has many years of sales numbers, and they are not about to introduce another model that would would weaken sales of two models they already have in production.

    No charge and no issue pulling the meter in a natural disaster. They understand. It's the best way to power your house while at the same time making sure you're not back feeding into their system and potentially endangering the crews that are repairing damage.

    Other way around. When you see a news reporter in a canoe pretending there's a massive flood as people walk by only ankle deep, that's indeed fake news, and regardless of party affiliation or preference, it should be called-out. Until people hold reporters accountable, they will keep right on playing this game.

    Sure I don't know you? Had the same set up then went ALL SAE w/the biggest and bestest they had. Arnie cut me a deal at his cost! The dealer he shipped them to was having a litter of puppies mumbling about what I paid for all that stuff. Inside I was rollin. Funnier when he said he'd send his best man 200 miles to do the complete install. Said he was told it was to be properly set up! Dude wound up spending the night at my place and got to work about noon the next day! hahahahaha Trust me the system DOES need a dust and polish... That Linn has NEVER looked like that! Think I'll spray paint the Mani purple just for giggles or maybe pink for Gia! lolol

    === nothing I got but an interesting sighting as we were navigating at around 11000 feet in Rocky Mtn. National Park. You know in automobiles magazines how they show “spy” photos of new vehicles all camouflaged to be unrecognizable - heading down the mountain I see what I believe to be a pick up truck and wonder what the helll it has all over the front end, then see the entire truck is covered in different materials, then comes a second and third one. Must have been pre-production mules doing high altitude testing. Kinda cool —

    I do have to say, just from my experience and I hope it was the odd case. After running a freezer on a generator, later after a month or so it died, coincidence or not I don't know ? I do know it was a 5500-7500 peak generator, I WAS TOLD ... these types of generators are a not great for steady clean power, a whole house generator is much better, it has something with how the power is regulated and kept even. I will not get the whole house thing, just not interested or would want to pay for one and I would have to get a good size propane tank to go with it. I have no idea if this is true but have heard it before...........I hope you have much better luck than we did years ago, and the freezer was all that was on the generator.

    On the subject of addiction, it's all OK as long as their views mesh with your own. Only opponents get to be skewered for being human. There have arisen, on occasion however, a select few who deserve to be skewered for being effing morons.

    Hahaha whoa now you are talking double for the same... I am speaking to this day and age...... We can argue all day long but I hesitate to do so with anyone that thinks 40 years of engineering has brought nothing to the table for the same price as the prime "vintage" gear. Yeah from that comment you can figure out how old I am. You buy an old piece of gear and revamp it and you are EASILY into a quality piece of modern gear. Just my 2 cents. I know I'll be burned at the steak for it but I'm ready.

    I'm not sure. I wouldn't go back to the tube days like many, but I consider my sunfire amp and preamp modern, even if they are close to 20 years old. I like bourbon too. I'm pretty sure I am not descended from the Bourbons, but several generations back there may be a connection. Were they anywhere near Cognac?

    A pirate was standing dockside with his peg leg and hook where his hand should be and an eye patch over his empty eye socket. A ruffian approached and said: Mr Pirate, Mr. :Pirate, how did you get that peg leg? The pirate says: I was swimming in the sea and a shark came along and bit off me foot. The sawbones gave me this peg leg. The ruffian says: Mr. Pirate Mr. Pirate, how did you get that hook on your arm? The pirate says: I was repelling a boarding party and a skirvy dog hacked off me hand. The sawbones gave me this hook. The ruffian says: Mr. Pirate, Mr. Pirate, how did you lose your eye? The pirate says: I was looking up to the yardarms and bird pooped in me eye. The ruffian says: That’s gross but bird poop wouldn’t do too much damage to your eye. The pirate says: True. But it was the first day with me hook. (From Tom and Ray.)

    Did not imply it was the stores fault. I fully understand how the process works I was responsible for the deliveries that keeps the doors open. I agree That each person is supposed to be responsible for ones self. (Thats why my freezers are full, and I now have a generator to run them in a time of need) I also get to help some less fortunate than me with food.

    For your consideration: A newly restored pair of Klipsch Cornwall II’s. This pair was originally manufactured in a raw birch finish. Before doing any of the veneer work, I removed the trim pieces and re-finished the front and rear in a rust-oleum oil-based primer and satin black. The trim pieces were then replaced with solid walnut. The cabinets were surfaced with a beautifully figured “leopard walnut” veneer acquired from Joe at VeneerSupplies.com. This is a real wood veneer, not the cheap composite wood veneer used in similar offerings. Three coats of Waterlox finish were applied; For those of you not familiar with waterlox, it is a phenolic-resin modified tung-oil. It is my favorite finish as the tung-oil provides the best penetrating and drying qualities available while the resin allows the coatings to form a very strong film with an attractive sheen. Risers, were constructed in a similar fashion, as seen in the newest Cornwall III’s. The B2 crossovers were recapped with Dayton audio precision audio caps. The tweeters were upgraded with new titanium dome offerings by Bob Crites. The squawkers are K-57-K, and the woofers are K-34E. Resistance measurements are as you should expect from all of the drivers. The side walls have been lined with an open cell acoustic foam. The original grills are included, and they are in fair condition. I constructed an additional set in a sand-colored acoustically-transparent cloth as they were a better match for my room; both sets will be included. I made a custom Klipsch logo as well. The labels containing the serial numbers were in poor condition, and ugly in my opinion, so those have been replaced but the serial numbers have been conserved: 8634630, 8634631. My reason for selling: As you can see, they are too large for my room, and my better half hates that they are so large. But most of all, this is a labor of love for me, and I enjoyed putting in the countless hours of work. I am located in College Station, TX. I would highly prefer local pick-up due to their size. My asking price is 2,200, 2,000 1800 which is a steal compared to other offerings in the 3,500 to 4,500 range. I have attempted to make this ad comprehensive but if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Here is the photo album: https://imgur.com/a/QaYi5r8

    I would place the Chorus II pair I owned very close to the current Forte III. The guy I bought the chorus II from didn't go nuts on the crossover though during recap, just basic Crites. The Forte III sounded much better at low volumes. The chorus I felt had to be up a little louder for the sound to equalize. The Cornwalls have more bass output that is not as tight as the others, but sounds deeper than the other two. The mids on the Forte III I liked much better, other than a sharp rise around 1.5k or so if I remember right, which was mostly fixed by firing them straight.
