  1. I do not claim to have golden ears. I am a 67 year old Man, who cleaned roofs for most of my life, so I was never exposed to excessive sound levels, and always wore ear protection at Concerts. I have never heard any differences at all in sound with various speaker cables. Yet I have some really Fat ones from MIT that look like large snakes, on my floor. I have compared these big *** MIT Cables with Zip Cord, and never heard any differences. Then WHY do I have them ? Because my good friend will flat turn off when listening to my system with Zip Cord! In fact, though I use a Yamaha Receiver as my preamp to drive whatever amp I am using at the time, if my friend is coming over to listen, I have to put an old 2 channel preamp that does NOT use any OP Amps,, because if I don't, he will refuse to listen to my system with me! Of course, he does not come over much, and my Cat thanks him! The large thick MIT Speaker Cables have literally scared my poor Cat to death! I have seen her forget the cables are there, see them, then go several feet in the air vertically! They scare her! One day, he came over, only to discover the amp I had connected did not have a power card as thick as a fire hose hooked up to it. So yes, I have one of those, I just forgot to hook it up that day! I installed the Huge Power Cord, yet he still refused to listen, saying the power cord needed a few days to "season". LOL, he lent me some interconnects once that had arrows on them, to tell you the direction of current flow. Just to mess with him, I told him I had the arrows going towards the pre amp, LOL He told me that I "ruined his interconnects", until I told him I was just messing with him! He is a good guy, and a longtime friend, and not a stupid person either. But I almost feel sorry for him ......

  2. Thanks to whoever posted a picture of Paul Klipsch's midrange horn lamp for this inspiration (@dtel maybe?) . I made a set out of some K700 heresy midrange horns. I made one for me and one for my dad for father's day (couldn't post until after since he checks he forum). Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk

  3. Good morning America , very hot in Germany , up to 95 F are announced . The pool is ready to go if I can't stand it anymore. In the house it is a pleasant 70 F. Am since 5.30 o'clock on the legs, have already drunk 3 Latte Machiatto and am a bit agitated, too little sleep. We went to my daughter's high school graduation party yesterday . A great organized event , wonderful buffet, good drink selection and very very many people. I actually just realized yesterday that my daughter is an adult woman . My wife and I could not hold back the tears at the official handover of the graduation certificates. She makes us happy! Tomorrow she goes on vacation with a few friends to Lake Constance in southern Germany.

  4. ... I gave up. 😂 I wasn't quick enough on multiple occasions to catch a set of Khorns locally so I caved and bought myself a set of Cornwall Is which popped up. Externally they are in great original condition but the cane grills needing to be reapplied with fresh velcro due to some warping.

  8. My Chorus 2's purchased in pre end-times, May 2019 in FL. Lovingly watched over by a good friend, doing me a favor. They finally arrived home to NY this morning. Played for about an hour and I will say, it was well worth the wait. They sound big, full, and present. Of course I'm comparing to my RB5s. WOW!!!

  11. Hello and good evening good morning my vinyl lovin' friends! Been TOO LONG since I have posted, busy around the home etc. I picked up a new to me LP off eBay. I had heard that there was a live, direct to disc recording made in the late 70ies using a single point mic. Well, I just HAD to search this out. The AKG C-24 stereo ribbon microphone in use! Big band of Harry James recording LIVE in a small church with his 30 piece BIG BAND! Absolutely excellent! The disc is not perfect being used, but it will do. To get one of these sealed is $100 ! Here then are some photos during the listening session currently. WOW! what a natural, you are there sound from Sheffield! There are NO edits, they had to get it right the first time! Here is the front cover.

  12. Yep, I had to do that when we had storms come through here on April 12th of this year. We had several large Oak limbs come down in our woods and the top of a large Pine tree. We also had a huge Oak Tree that came down; falling out of the woods onto our back yard and the top ended up about 10 feet from our house. These pictures only show a portion of all the piles of limbs, branches, and segments of the trunk that I cut up. My Echo chainsaw really got a workout and so did I!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We had a lot of trees down in our neighborhood, but thankfully no damage to any homes. From the way that the tops of some trees and some limbs were twisted off, it appears that we probably had a tornado come over us, but off the ground.

  14. Well, I checked everything, and gave it a good clean too, and I think there's nothing wrong with the needle etc. I'm currently listening to Talk Talk's It's my Life on vinyl, and it sounds just fine! So I think the mixing/mastering of the vinyl record of Hotel California is quite different compared to what Spotify is streaming (a re-master?).

  22. This morning, I was a little bit in shock when I read that Michael Fremer is leaving analogplanet.com What?! Michael Fremer IS analogplanet! Read about it here: https://www.analogplanet.com/content/welcome-analog-planet-20#comment-585186 After some google use, I found his new project: https://trackingangle.com/ You can add your name and email to a mailing list. I've done that already. In his own words: TrackingAngle.com is the new online home of the pioneering 1990s print magazine The Tracking Angle I edited and produced in partnership with Nick Despotopoulos and David L’Heureux. I will leave AnalogPlanet at the end of June, 2022 to launch this new venture and bring with me to TrackingAngle.com my talented writing staff as well as introduce to you some new contributors—and watch for the new TrackingAngle YouTube channel. Reuniting with Nick and David, we will continue to produce the Internet’s most comprehensive reviews of recorded music and affordable audio equipment, with a focus on analog playback. In addition there will be new features and other content focused on the worldwide vinyl resurgence. If you don't know Michael Fremer, you must be a Martian... , but here is his first 'new' video:

  28. Blah, blah, blah 😂 My shop showed 20+ copies BUT I'm praying there's one left when I can buy online. Sucks to be me but I ain't goin NO where to buy lp's. ALTHOUGH, I did think about it this time. We'll see. I got a lil pacification to keep the nerves in check a bit ago. It's working marvelously too. My jaw is hangin and I'm only listening to the cd's right now. Now that I've got your attention maybe I'm thinkin outside the box again. Decided last nite this Grado Black on the Thoren's was about the dumbest thing I've ever done. Going to take both tables up to the Linn dude and have him put a new DynaVector 20 on the Linn and swap out the Grado replacing it w/my used DynaVector. Yea, talk about spoiled? That's the game plan though. Now back to the pacification. Someone said the Asia "Live at Budokhan" was a killer box set so I jumped the other day. It showed up this morning and all I can say is WOW! I'm running the 2-CD's on the Oppo now full throttle and it's f'n KILLIN ME! Savin the lp's for the Linn but I'm gonna have to pick up some Depends me thinks! AND ya get the Blue-ray IF ur into that. Naturally there's the expanded picture book and even a PIN! Gimme a break, just gimme that 2 lp gatefold and save me some money! Apparently the market is there for the new boxes and higher prices is there cause they're selling it. Just bat schiit crazy to me though. Down the road? Gonna be nuts. Raping wallets IS the thing to do today it seems. It truly shines in every way IF ya really want it.

  36. What a great movie in so many ways Lazenby pulled it off in great fashion Don't recall why they didn't bring him back Armstrong hit it out of the Park on the theater sound system where I saw it. Don't understand how Dandy Moore ended up with the job and each farce worse than the previous one. Live and Let Die was great, then it fell off a cliff.
