  2. 1/2 pot of coffee down. Looking for something to do [besides housework]. With the wife pulling double duty, the trickle down means I get more work, too. So... it's time to crank up the music.I get to listen to the garage system, RP600M/Yamaha CR-840 on weekends. I sure enjoy the LS after listening to the little speakers. A quantum difference between. The RP's thump... but the LS are more refined Boy is "cleaning" the cottage. Looks like he moving out or he is planning on moving his GF in. I see a lot of non WAF stuff put away. He hasn't said dookie about what he is up to Had to chuckle at his cleaning efforts. He has rugs that have never been vacuumed. It's been over a year and he has dogs. Thought he could clean them with one pass of the vac.. I went to fetch our vacuum back. While I was there, I did a thorough vacuuming on half of one of the rugs... leaving a clean spot.... I can be a real donkey when I want. Among many other jobs I have had, I used to clean furniture and carpet professionally.

  3. The best thing about getting "new" speakers like these, for me, is being able to pull random things from the collection and become acquainted with them all over again. Hearing things that I haven't heard in awhile, at least, and discovering sounds on them that I'd either forgotten about, or didn't hear through plays before these extremely revealing beasts. There is no downside for me with these. I can listen to them for hours and look forward to the next record. I could not be happier. Now what am I going to play next?

  5. Here's your payback guys. It was pretty good, I fixed the too much parm with pulling more sauce out from under them. Texting and hitting the bottom of the parm jar at the same time aren't advised! At least the phone didn't get in there. Bogo got me three meals out of the first bag. So that's about $3.00 a meal with everything else included. & I'm stuffed after this. Wouldn't cut it as a thirty year old but it does now.

  6. yeah... we eat frozen pizzas, too. As you noted, it take some time to do them proper from scratch..even w/o 2 days in the fridge

  7. I like making pizza dough from scratch with slow rise yeast. Letting the dough proof in the fridge for a day or two makes the flavor really nice. The BGE can run up to around 750° which works well with a good pizza stone in it. But, we eat a lot of frozen pizzas as well.

  8. Pita shells work for Pizza crust in a pinch, in fact taco shells work too but I guess it's no longer a Pizza then.

  9. True, originally stardust. But some do chase the dust in the wind. "I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind ... I applied myself to the understanding of wisdom, and also of madness and folly, but I learned that this, too, is a chasing after the wind ... " [Attributed to Solomon c. 940-ish BCE] And so it goes, until he gets to: "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: · A time to be born, and a time to die ..." Etc. And, as we might say today, "Go with the Flow," and "Play it as it Lays."

  12. The entire thing is thick ceramic so it holds in the heat really well. Coupled with a thick pizza stone and preheating to over 700° it works really well as a pizza oven. it was pricey but I spend a LOT of time cooking outside during the warmer months. On the opposite end of the spectrum it can hold temp at around 225° for almost 24 hours which makes it perfect for smoking pork butts overnight without me having to wake up constantly and check on it.

  13. The Chiefs Bills game last night was one for the ages. I don't remember one where both QBs played so well. Crying shame that the Bills and QB Josh Allen didn't get to have the ball in OT.

  15. What a turn my life has taken. I was the timepiece specialist at a Rolex jeweler for nearly 20 years. Went to tons of training, sold some of the most expensive ($100k+) Rolexes ever made. Absolutely loved learning about watches. Owned a Submariner, two Datejusts and a Date. New management comes along and gives me double the workload with no extra pay and assigns me tasks that take me off the sales floor but keep my sales goals the same. After about 6 months of that, sayonara. Took 6 months off of work, sold our house, moved an hour away to an area with tons of lakes. Sold all my Rolexes. Started a commercial/residential cleaning company. Almost 4 years later we now have 8 employees, almost 100 regular clients and I work 10-15 hours a week.

  17. That grill TOTALLY has a coolness rating of 9.5. I've never seen one like that. I guess it would work but how long do you have to cook it before the crust is done? Is there a lid to keep the heat in? Novel idea for sure. Taste the charcoal/wood? Make dough? Yea, ok... I usually just doctor up a frozen one. Yup, I'm working nite shift more and more. Crib at 3 and up @1130. I do have my coffee though. More snow hitting to add to the 4 inches out there now. Suited up yesterday to blow the drive and my neighbor had already done it. Maybe he's getting tired of raking leaves to and wants me to drive around his yard w/the sweeper. Either way I owe him one. @JohnJDon't start w/that food yet bud. I just had a cube steak for breakfast. 😂

  19. I did just the opposite installed Crites rebuilt Chorus II crossovers into my custom KP-301-II's and it was like a veil was lifted, really cleaned up the sound immensely. The KP crossovers are designed for extreme output with added circuitry for tweeter protection and higher crossover points-- unless you're planning on sustained concert level output or starting a DJ business the Chorus crossover is plenty stout in all my years of massive abuse on my Chorus II's I only ever lost a tweeter diaphragm a couple of times.

  23. You guys made me hungry. Had to pull the ravioli out of the fridge so I can put the pyrex in the oven in a couple hours for my meal today. I don't make `em, they were Celentano beef buy one get one. Made sauce with sauteed mushrooms, onion and garlic. *Yep I take shortcuts when they put it together for less $ than I can

  28. Great deal. Those drivers outperformed my big JBL's when I measured them. Also those EV drivers were used by John Pope for a PhD thesis, proving to PWK that Tractrix horn could be made shorter than exponential horn. Also Roy measured mine in the chamber in Indy and said they were very good drivers. This is a steal for anyone who wants a super low distortion sound.

  30. My brother loves the mexican street corn and say he's made a pretty close copy of it. Cauliflower, yep it has to have flavor on it, but to me it kills the other flavor. Dough is better under a pizza

  31. I like to talk about food and I watch TV Just saw an ad for products such as cauliflower crust pizza, Mexican style street corn, an acia dish, cauliflower mac-n-cheese and a VEGGIE HEMP BOWL... who woulda thought? I can't imagine eating hemp. The seed are quite tasty ... flowers and leaf have chemicals to make it unpalatable.

  32. I see it differently. EvCo built a pair of speakers (a proven model that I am sure will sound great). He spent about half of what you are suggesting. From that he will have years of enjoyment and the pride that comes from accomplishing the project himself. EvCo is to be congratulated and I hope his build will inspire others. -Tom

  35. They look perfect. From the 90s. Very fair price. Are they worth getting and can I find replacement crossovers if needed? 600 for the pair to me. How good are they?

  37. Yea, I would also think that the stiffness of the surround also comes into play. It would be nice to just be able to modify the $36 15" woofers from Partsexpress.

  38. Couldn't agree more with this statement. Just got a pair of stock '77's yesterday and have already got way more enjoyment out of them then I expected. I also have a pair of 77 all stock Cornies, and they're great. But I like the LaScala's even more. I don't find them harsh, I find the bass fine for me, and love their looks. Simply a wonderful piece of gear.

  41. Detailed and crisp sound on my system. Imaging, soundstage and micro details suffer a bit (compared to my class A amp), bass is great, but could be a little more extended/authoritative. Again, for $350, Im nitpicking and this little amp is exceptional. Compared to my hypex, less extreme control over the bass and much more crisp up top (perhaps more aggressive/fatiguing for some?). It should be known that my speakers are 3 dB hot up top in crossover from the factory (behind the screen speakers) as are my speaker cables and interconnects. So take my opinion on the amp knowing those variables.

  43. Midnight at Chernobyl is a good read. It brought back memories and made me read more about what they have done since then. Reading The Gulag Archipelago shows more about what happens when people are afraid of stepping out of line, similar to what made Chernobyl more disastrous. I have only read volumes one and two. I have to take a break between volumes and be thankful for what I have.
