  2. Van Morrison is always good. That's a great album because, at that point in time with it being his second album, he went HIS direction. His first lp "Brown Eyed Girl" hit HARD and resonated with millions in 1967. The public craved more so he went HIS direction with the "Astral Weeks" album in 1968. People didn't comprehend the message he was sending, which caused slow sales. Today, after he went back in that direction on tours, they discovered how good he really was. Couple days at the Hollywood Bowl proved that with the release of those shows as a "live" album. It's got him all over it. Nice score @MeloManiac! Thanks for the share! Memories brother, memories!

  10. I'll agree with you two on that. Wish I had ALL of Van's stuff but at least it was playing a lot in the background in the 80s for me (Carlos too) with the crowd I hung out with! @billybob When my brother stopped bringing 5 or 10 pounds of vinyl at a time and hit me with over a hundred I was overwhelmed! As I categorized, alphabetized, cleaned and played for the months I was trying to help my mother stay comfortable I had to make decisions. That Racsals sounded good to me music wise but it wasn't the Who, the Stones or J Geils from the 60s either! It popped up when we were "talking". Alvin Lee wasn't it... with the beefy torso on the cover? Think it was his first solo. Not doing his normal blues shredding, weeping guitar stuff it was like he maybe tried to emulate Jeff Beck. But Beck leaned towards jazz. That record that I only listened to parts of a couple tracks reminded me of Studio54. Like an early high tech rave dance music of the 90s. Might have been hasty. Glad you like that other LP!

  14. I love the sound of 15" drivers personally. If i sell the CF-3 now that i have the CF-4, it'd probably be a trade for Chorus II just to have best of both worlds. Admittedly, i never gave the Chorus II's big McIntosh power when i had a pair like i'm giving the CF-4s and the CF-3s and really wish i could recap a set of Chorus II and feed them big, clean power. Right now i'm playing with an integrated from Pathos, with a tube pre. It's a fully tube pre for multi channel purposes, but with a primary focus on 2ch, the center turns off and the Pathos auto bridges the left/right channels to 450wpc and it's heavenly on these CF-4s. This combo blows away the Mac gear i have. It's on borrow and demo, and the only thing i think about is reliability. Mac lasts a lifetime. This Pathos unit has already needed repair. I got lots to mull over! Power just came on and the first thing i want to do is write this and now listen to my CF-4s and relax in the warmth

  15. Speakers are Sold. I am almost done crying. I was the original and only owner of this pair of speakers. I had them for 30 years and loved them. A little too much base for me, I had to back off the base often. I need something lighter and smaller that can make frequent moves with me. Best regards to all! Vicki

  17. Dennis Had is building me an Fire bottle SET with 300B tubes. It's almost done, awaiting the face plate only. He says he is amazed with the sound of it so far. Wondering Which of my Klipsch speakers would BEST match with it ? K-horns 70th, or CWII's, La Scalla's II, Heresy's III's, or Forte's III's ?

  20. I would expect that from Neil... Good one Doin' some yard work. not shoveling snow - yard work. Cleaning up after what I did yesterday. Found a bottle. Dr RH McLean's Volcanic Oil Liniment. Bottle is old/ish. Screw top. Been in a fire or spent a long time in the sun. Its shape is distorted. I know glass will sag in time. For instance ... I found a drinking/water glass, at an old dump site, that's open end was near flat together... honest

  21. Daytona Bike Week mid 90s. Beachside shook and vibrated for about ten days or longer each year! Made new friends on my back porch leaving at 5am several times -n-- retentive huns ruined it harassing good folks, then it spread out from New Smyrna to St. Augustine. Wasn't the same through when I left in `03.

  23. As much as this makes for great reading there are large areas where I do not have comprehensive knowledge. I kind of appreciate it but at the same time know my limits and they are there. I am a serious tinkerer but not a guru by any stretch. Thanks for the vote of confidence though.

  24. Mardi Gras was shut down, no parades and you can't even go to Bourbon St. The are hundreds of houses decorated all around town if people wanted to take a driving parade to see decorations. This was Bourbon St today.

  26. Worst storm I’ve been in... -51 wind chill and about 3 feet of packed snow. High centered a Yukon SUV, had to dig it out in the wind, not fun. Same storm my wimpy Buick Rendezvous completely gave up... dash said, Take vehicle to dealer. Driving on ice is different than snow. Worst is snow over ice. No fast motions. If you slide, get feet off the pedals. Stay calm. I’ve done a few 180 deg unintentionally... never flipped myself! Went off-roading in a Trans AM once. Stay safe and check on your neighbours!

  28. The benefit is that you don't have to string extension cords everywhere, can flip on lights as needed, etc. It's enabled us to run a heat lamp in the barn and heaters in the house 100yds away, all from the same generator.

  29. In 1999, I bought a 2500W Honda portable generator that saved my butt (and my neighbors') several times over the years. A few years ago, I went all-in with a 20Kw Generac whole-house unit that runs on natural gas. The transfer switch cuts over in less than 20 seconds when the ComEd service fails. It's been fantastic.

  30. SOLD (to me) Upon inspection, they were in better shape than the pictures even showed. One original owner, sequential serial #'s, beautiful grain, ZERO defects that I could find, (not even any scratches) & have been babied their entire life! No upgrades ever done but I'm fine with that... As some of you may remember, I already have a set of Chorus 1's that I installed titanum diaphragms in, did the 7" port mods, & braced internally. Btw, Chorus 1's are my own personal "reasonable" (cost/sound/size/appearance) favorite. I sold my original owner black La Scalas to buy my first pair & have NO regrets 2 years later. I actually think my modded 1's sound better overall than my La Scalas did with a sub. The tradeoff of slighly diminshed (vs La Scala) imaging & soundstage is offset by addition of the Pro 15' "chest thumper" of the Chorus 😃 In case anyone is wondering "Why buy another pair?" My current ones are Oak, & these are FLAWLESS Walnut

  34. Skeptics? We don't need no stinkn' SKEPTICS! Your Four States Weather Wizard called it two days ago, right down to the WHY using easily available information from the web. However, there's one more element. I learned about Four States Weather from Harold Taft, the worlds first TV weatherman who went on the air in 1949 (the year YFSR was born) and continued on Fort Worth Channel 5 for half a century. When computers came into being, he'd say "Here's what the computers have to say..." and, after that, he'd say "Now, here's whats REALLY going to happen!" He'd then use an outdoor camera to explain the cloud formations and what they meant. He had a 3 day forecast, but the 5 day was an "outlook" because he didn't believe it possible to accurately forecast 5 days. Here's to you, Harold!

  35. Thanks, billybob. PrestonTom, I don’t know where I got this first one, but here are the K31 specs I saved. The second one came from thread you started back in 2007. One said 360 liters, the other 384. In either case, that’s a lot bigger than 205 for the Ciare. Both say the VAS is around 360 liters. Does VAS change based on whether it’s for Jubilee or KLF-30?

  38. Once upon a time you dressed so fine Threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you? People call, say, "Beware doll you're bound to fall" You thought they were all kiddin' you You used to laugh about everybody that was hangin' out Now you don't talk so loud Now you don't seem so proud About having to be scrounging your next meal How does it feel? How does it feel? To be without a home Like a complete unknown Like a rolling stone You've gone to the finest school, all right Miss Lonely But you know you only used to get juiced in it Nobody's ever taught you how to live out on the street And now you're gonna have to get used to it You said you'd never compromise with the mystery tramp But now you realize, he's not selling any alibis As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes And say, "Do you want to make a deal?" How does it feel? How does it feel? To be on your own With no direction home A complete unknown Like a rolling stone You never turned around to see the frowns On the jugglers and the clowns when they all did tricks for you Never understood that it ain't no good You shouldn't let other people get your kicks for you You used to ride on the chrome horse with your diplomat Who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat Ain't it hard when you discover that he really wasn't where it's at? After he took from you everything he could steal How does it feel? How does it feel? To be on your own With no direction home Like a complete unknown Like a rolling stone Princess on the steeple and all the pretty people They're all drinkin', thinkin' that they got it made Exchanging all precious gifts But you better take your diamond ring, you better pawn it babe You used to be so amused at Napoleon in rags And the language that he used, go to him now he calls you You can't refuse, when you got nothing, you got nothing to lose You're invisible now, you got no secrets to conceal How does it feel? How does it feel? To be on your own With no direction home Like a complete unknown Like a rolling stone

  39. I have a feeling your speakers will be well cared for. You sure took great care of them. The Klipsch RP600m is a small speaker that sounds much larger, might be an option. Some of the wireless choices are nice also. Good luck.

  40. My favorite jazz keyboard player, especially his melodic, Spanish style Piano work as solo artist. With Return To Forever, Miles Davis, and hundreds of other artists, he was one of the very best electric and acoustic keyboard players of all time.

  41. For residential use I would 100% recommend solar, grid tied. For backup power I'd go with a propane generator since a grid tied system will not provide power if the power goes out. Off grid systems are a whole different beast. For the most part small scale wind turbines are finicky and unreliable. I'd only recommend one if someone has a strong wind resource and its mounted up on a tower above any obstructions. Source = I've been working in the utility scale wind industry for 14 years.

  42. Sure you could use an air core coil for the 2.75mH. But because it would need so much more wire the max of .4 ohm DCR will force you to go way up in wire size (read more $$). Also, air core coils are a lot more sensitive to proximity of other coils. As for .15 or 2.7mH, I am sure many people have done it that way. In my case I guess I'm just too anal when it comes to spec's. So I would buy the next higher value IE: .18 or 2.8mH - measure them and then unwrap the coil(s) to reach the .16mH or 2.75mH final remeasured value.

  43. I have a basically brand New Technics 1200 MK7 (Latest Version) Its black and has 10 hours maximum use absolutely as new works perfect. I also bought the Cartridge overhang guage and I am using an AT-VM95EN Orange Stylus I have original double box packing manual everything that comes with it new. There is not a mark on it. The dust cover is as new sell the Table for 950.00 (New it was 1300.00) Plus fees and shipping, I will include the cartridge which is 170.00 new if my asking price of 950 is met.....................So 950 you get the new (ish) Table and the Cartridge with under 10 hours use

  44. That should be happening next week. We're going for a work week, curtains, painting and moving stuff again, a lift is needed for the curtains so it will be used to fly the speakers. If it doesn't work you will see it in the news, " people crushed by a giant speaker"
