    Who is Camping??

    We will be glamping in an RV. I have tent camped at Rodney's in the past, but my wife is coming this year for the first time, and she is not a tent camper type. Camping at Rodney's does allow a degree of freedom compared to driving back to Hope for the night.

    Wedding Speakers?

    Those were my brother's. Same pair he used at my niece's wedding. He hauled them from Houston to a family reunion in Indiana once to make sure we would have good audio. I guess his motto is "Have Cornwalls, will travel".

    Wedding Speakers?

    My brother set up Cornwalls for his daughters wedding. Worked out great.

    Prayers for west Michigan

    Holy cow, I just Googled it - over 2400 lines down in your area. You need prayers and a lot of hard working lineman crews. Try to stay warm - in the dark. Hopefully, your boom box batteries will hold out until Monday night. We're thinking of you.

    Did Academia Kill Jazz?

    Academia may be the best hope to keep Jazz going into the next generation. Last evening I attended the "Spring Sing" at my son's high school. He is a senior and the lead trombonist in their "Jazz Catz" band which is composed mostly of students, with a few parents, and several band teachers and private lesson instructors. They were fabulous. They performed at least 13 tunes including "One O’Clock Jump" (Count Basie), "The Girl From Ipanema" (Gilberto & Getz), "Sing, Sing, Sing" (Louis Prima), "In The Mood" (Glen Miller), and "Pick Up The Pieces" (Average White Band). It was great to see the kids playing this music and loving it.

    I just noticed that those were first Forum posts for both of you. Welcome to the Forum!

    Something New In Soldering

    Not sure about that, but the 24VAC in those wires can deliver an unpleasant shock. Don't ask me how I know that. 😬

    Something New In Soldering

    I used those for sprinkler control wire splices. Still good after being buried for 20 years.

    Amp recommendation - back after 15 years!

    Since you are considering vintage solid state, a Harman Kardon Twin Powered Receiver would match up well. I'm running a pair of KG4 speakers on an HK630 (30WPC) and it rocks them. The HK730 (40WPC) sounds even better IMO on Klipsch speakers (my brother runs Lascalas on an HK730). I cannot say whether it is better than the Marantz 2200b. There are a couple of HK730 receivers on ebay now. The HK430 (25WPC) and works great on on my Heresys and Khorns, but the higher powered Harman Kardons might be better on your KGs.

    Probably more pluses than minuses for planning Friday night (or earlier Saturday) live entertainment. Driving home Sunday morning after a late Saturday night at Rodney's is no fun. Folks who may need to depart Saturday afternoon/evening would not miss too much of the event. Friday night entertainment would make for a very long day on Friday, but would offer more time for visiting, causal listening, etc. on Saturday. May need to consider another planned activity for Saturday afternoon to fill the three-day event (gear demos?, tubes vs. SS challenge?, calliope music hour?).

    At least not tent camping. An RV is a possibility, but that's not really camping.

    I must revise my headcount. My wife said she would attend this year. Put me down for two.
