    I've been busy during COVID working on my small listening space. It is in a building out behind my house with 240V power, heat & a/c, internet and phone. I will probably post more photos if there is interest, but thought y'all might like a couple of teasers. There is supposed to be a large TV on the bracket (you probably guessed that) but I don't have one yet. Ceiling detail: The foreground center ceiling panel is attic access.

    Here are a few. Just finished 1.5wpc 1625 triode wired. Knight KB83 or was lol... 4 x EL37, 2 xgz34 forgot other tubes lol but they are bugle boys. This ran so hot we completely gutted it and redesigned it. It is now a PP triode el37 about 10wpc. Brook 12A Clones I built including PWK or Moderfari mods. A gift from IBSlammin. LuxmanPP triode 50ca10. Just completed cap replacement and putting it back to factory as it has been modified. Going to bring it up this week. Next to be rebuilt two EL84 amplifiers chock full of awesome mullard gz34 and el84 tubes. Love the look. I love the fisher it has been modified so I am not sure what I will do with it... Looks abit ratty.

    Just picked up this NOS GT i-drive 3.0. Just needs air in the tires. Might have to break out the Klipsch jersey for its maiden voyage.

    Well, two of them have stories for sure, thanks for asking. The radio was built by my grandfather, so my grandmother told me. I never knew him, and she's been gone 41 years. She knew how much I loved stuff like that, and even though I was a just a boy she knew I'd hang on to it. The headphones came with it. It has a single 4-pin tube in it. The terminals on the left are ANT and GND, and the terminals on the top right are for headphones, and the remaining four on the right are for A and B battery connections. The leftmost knob is a giant variable capacitor, the middle one is a rheostat, and the rightmost knob is a giant coil-within-a-coil mechanism. The tube has what appears to be a tubular diode or something attached, perhaps as a detector? I dunno. I've never powered it up, though I have the supplies to do so. The whiskey bottle was the "medicinal whiskey" from my parents kitchen cabinet in the house where I grew up. When mom died in 2018, we were cleaning out the house and I found the bottle. It was empty, lol. I kept it. In this photo there isn't, but now there is a protective pad (doily?) on top of the KHorn that this stuff is resting on. The coffee cup speaks for itself. Stolen from PWK. I'm not much of a decorator, but these things remind me of family and of home. The floor is concrete with a rug on it, but I'm seriously considering a laminate wood floor with the rug on THAT, just to give it a more comfy feel. Still working on the other two walls - more lights to hang and foam to put up.

    no plans on veneering them. They will get a complete sanding down to the wood. There are a few minor repairs to make. Ultimately, they are slated for Plum Mahogany (version II). I liked the 1st pair so well, gonna do it again. That was the only pair I really had a hard time letting go. Keepers this time! I plan on updating the AA crossovers with the Crites kit. They have 77 square, 55 spring lug. I haven't pulled the dog house cover yet to reveal square or round K33. Pretty simple restoration, just time consuming.

    I have a nice set of industrial La Scala’s for sale. I bought these from a forum member less than a year ago. I love them, but don’t have room to keep them. They have Dave A’s smahl tweeter with the de-120 driver. The woofers were also replaced with Eminence Kappa 15c. Rebuilt AA crossovers. The Dog houses are braced and are panted with Duratex. These speakers sound fantastic. I really hate to let them go. I can send better pictures if anyone is interested. $1,500 located close to Evansville, IN.

    Things are a bit slow on the forums so thought you might want to watch me swap tubes. Out with the EL-34s and in with the KT-120s. A little more horse power😉

    No. I too was making light of the photo, not criticizing your funny remark. As you know, nuance available through spoken words is lost in the keyboard.

    I gave up on Ebay bidding even with bid snipping. One time and one time only have I won a bid that I benefited from. Most of the time it was buy it now. That one time I won was with my 79 Cornwalls that I still own today. Luckily they were local, the description read Klipsch speakers with blown twitters. I offered him $650.00 to cancel auction, he declined and I ended up winning them for around $575.00.

    The first day we hooked them up, the director played Back In The USSR at 100+ dB and went to the farthest corner of the school to see if he could hear it; he could. Here one is facing the music. Would you believe this is how we delivered them to the school? I thought not. We used a van, a white van.

    Some nice bikes guys. Rode quite a bit in the mid to late 90's. Surprisingly many great trails here in FL. Have an old Gary Fisher Joshua F4. Known for their tendency to "end-over". Happened once to me and I performed a perfect tuck and roll with no scratches. Bill

    I don't want to bring the discussion down, but my favorite PF song is now "Wish You Were Here". Lost my best friend to cancer last year, a close friend for over 50 years. He had a place way out in the wood that we would go to and listen to music at sometimes very loud levels (4 LSI can do that especially outdoors). We had many favorites and that was one. Our old group still goes out to his place and crank the stereo while sitting by a bonfire. This song for obvious reasons bring us all to tears as we will raise a glass. No one speaks (probably because we can't) Goose bumps just typing this. Great song.

    @dirtmudd KRAUTROCK Unlimited Edition is a compilation album by the band Can. Released in 1976 as a double album, it was an expanded version of the 1974 LP Limited Edition on United Artists Records which, as the name suggests, was a limited release of 15,000 copies (tracks 14–19 were added). The album collects unreleased music from throughout the band's history from 1968 until 1976, and both the band's major singers (Damo Suzuki and Malcolm Mooney) are featured. The cover photos were taken among the Elgin Marbles in the Duveen Gallery of the British Museum.

    I'm sorry to say but it takes me back 40 years looking for things you can only find only on the Darkness on the Edge of Town, on suicide machines. If anyone every ask if you have ever smoked a joint you can always just say I went to college back in the 60's, 70's. Now over 70 don't even drink regular coffee, decafe.

    This is a bad photo, but the stained-glass window is fake. I built it, even incorporating a piece of plexi-glas I found in mom&dad's basement. It has an LED panel behind it that is dimmable. I haven't built the circuit yet, but the idea is to have a light sensor on the outside of the workshop near the attic vent that detects the level of light, then the circuit translates that into a dimming voltage for the panel. That way the stained glass window shows the proper light level that is really outside.

    It’s sad to see our neighbour turning into one of those countries that used to be warned against, the kind of place where life is cheap and people won’t be missed if they disappear. Equally sadly, parts of Canada are like that, too, especially for Native people. The World is actually getting better, but it’s doing it so achingly slowly, and now the news industry lets us hear about terrible things that happen everyday, which makes it look like it’s getting worse. It’s not. Most of us just didn’t know how bad things already were.
