  1. Hey all, Sorry about that. I've been trying since Monday to get the new certificate for this server, but our vendor was being very difficult for no apparent reason other than technical issues. All should be good now. Thanks

  2. At first, my wife wasn't sure she wanted to have a celebration, but finally accepted it whole heartedly. We had about 25 friends with us at one of the newer trendy places in Chattanooga's South Side. It was a lot of fun (as it usually is when a bunch of Filipinos get together).

  3. This will carry me for a while Mr DJ. I've been missing mine for about six months now. Putting the tubes in the pc sound path have helped a lot. So I get how you feel, and you might like this one picked it up a while back myself! EC & JJ

  8. Took delivery of my Belle Klipsch about three weeks ago. After getting some listening time in I've finally discovered what everyone means when they can really hear the difference in the way a source was recorded. I've had many Klipsch speakers but these are the first ones I've had where good recordings sound magnificent and bad ones are pretty much unlistenable. But all and all I love these things. Running them with just a solid state McIntosh MA 6100 integrated. Plenty of power for them. I'm a happy camper.

  15. Well... I was planning on having a quiet, lazy Sunday afternoon, having a nap, listening to some baroque Bach on vinyl... But then I came upon this post, which made me dig up "Deep Purple LIve In London", a BBC recording dating from 1982. So now I'm rocking on Smoke on the Water instead, getting the evil eye from my teenage kids. https://www.discogs.com/release/558346-Deep-Purple-Live-In-London Edit: The concert dates from 1974, the LP was brought out in 1982, a re-master of the 1974 quadrophonic tapes. The last track is a wonderful 'You Fool No One'!

  18. It is and I'm against using white cornmeal or any mixes so it's real and the homemade taco mix worked well! *This will half fill a #8, you do need a quarter tsp of soda that isn't on the sheet & I haven't used salt pork on fifteen years or more, only two tbsp of grease for this half batch

  21. Our issue wasn't with the renewal of our wildcart cert (that was done weeks ago), it was with the verification process they have in place. Won't go into more details than that. We're set though, thanks.

  22. That big fella got around. From his stuff to a quasi-Halloween-movie with Tim Curry. But with Nugent he helped make Ted's Best-Ever LP. * If you think that tune is alright, cue up the whole record! Yea I know it's early... but it's Friday. & even if your like Kenny's dad "Every day is the weekend when you're unemployed." Friday is always Friday!

  25. So I set everything up just to hear them in my room. Placed them with the mouth facing the wall behind them, 19" from that wall. With my SVS subs the auto calibration had set my subwoofer output at -1.0dB so I just left it at that just to see how it sounded. I've read that the THT isn't considered a true horn sub but it's the closest to one I've ever heard. It's really hard to describe how they sound. They're just plain violent, but in a good way. Just unbelievable output but they don't feel or hear like they're straining whatsoever. I put on Star Wars IX and watched the opening up until Palpatine raises the star destroyers. It felt as if my couch was levitating along with the ships! Then I looked up some old school Bass 305 songs on YouTube. My best friend and I used those songs back in our car audio days. By far the cleanest and smoothest that I've ever heard the bass from those songs. What is noticed most is the evenness in output at all the low bass frequencies in the Bass 305 songs. With any previous home sub I've had there always were certain frequencies that were over emphasized and certain frequencies you could barely hear. I don't know if it was a combination of sub placement, the subs themselves or what but I think I got lucky with these THTs and how they interact with my room because to my ears they have the flattest response of any sub I've never had. And that's only messing around with them for a little over an hour. If you have the room and if the gigantic size isn't an issue I would highly recommend a THT or similar sub! šŸ¤˜

  31. Here's a better solution if you are building risers anyhow. If you want to build something that works and is cheap, built 2 of these Anarchy tapped horns and use them as RISERS under LaScalas. Use two of these amplifiers to drive them and leave the LaScalas alone. Stick the port end into a corner or against a wall behind each LaScala. Look at the RED curve which is what comes out of the mouth. Should cost less than $300 to do for both channels. REAL BASS at work, without added distortion. Plans are in the PDF by Little Mike. https://www.parts-express.com/Dayton-Audio-SA25-25W-Subwoofer-Amplifier-300-782 Exodus Anarchy 25hz TH.pdf

  39. Apples and oranges. The JBL is obviously a more technically sound loudspeaker but it has to be for the price and because it's a studio monitor. Literally a reference. Ideal for mid-sized control rooms or even HiFi if someone wants that dead on neutral sound. They sound great on pristine recordings like this but are not as forgiving with "normal" non audiophile stuff. Poorly recorded music (which let's be honest most stuff we like are) will sound terrible on them it will just make you want to listen to audiophile easy listening stuff all the time to admire the sound quality instead of music you actually enjoy and have an emotional connection to. The Cornwalls as their name implies actually sound better closer to the wall, the drivers and the whole sound just becomes more coherent as 1 unit closer to the wall and the low end disperses through the walls and the room better. They are more like a live event type sound, not neutral by any stretch but will do virtually anything well including HT. That is a terrible amp pairing for Cornwalls. Something like a MC152 or MA5300 would have been far better from McIntosh but I definitely prefer solid state with them for a weightier sound with more low end grip and less bloaty sluggish bass. Anything Class A or AB, Pass, Accuphase, Bryston etc. that's what you want for that energic, clean and clear sound. The new Mac stuff sounds soooo much better it's amazing. Mac's used to sound very warm and mushy just smothering detail. Their newer stuff, really anything made in the last 10-11 sounds completely different. I used the MA5200 for awhile in 2ch and it sounded amazing. Detailed, clean and energetic. I tried some of their older stuff from the 70s, 90s and early 2000s and it was terrible. Mushy, laidback and rolled off. But some people love that mushy warm sound. I just think their new stuff sounds 100x better, it's night and day in my experience. So their sound signature has changed quite a bit -- for the better. If you want that sound tube amps are 100% the way to go with a high quality SS pre.
