  1. Until a couple of months ago, I still listened to cassettes on a regular basis in my boat system (25 year old Jensen player) and in my 1999 Infiniti Q45 (original Bose system, CD not operational but cassette worked great). I replaced both of these with Kenwood Bluetooth/CD players. I was listening to tapes that I had recorded 30 years ago, and those sounded decent in a automobile audio system. I have the original AM/FM/CD/Cassette system in my 1998 Explorer that still sees tapes once in a while.
  2. Best policy to protect the business. Very understandable.
  3. Maybe that means we will get to see some really cool new stuff?
  4. Virginia outplayed Tech in OT. Too many missed 3's by Tech near the end.
  5. That OB reversal killed Tech. I did not think it was all that conclusive.
  6. Yeah, we're getting our money's worth.
  7. oh my gosh. tech could win this
  8. 1 pt game with 1:31 to go. What a game.
  9. Niles Audio DPS-1. I have been using 2 of these for 15 years with no issues.
  10. Hoping for a Texas basketball trifecta - NIT (Texas), Women's NCAA (Baylor), and now the Men's NCAA (Texas Tech).
  11. Oh, that makes sense. Is that floor prone to flooding?
  12. Nice looking Khorns. Why do you feel that you need risers?
  13. I'll bring vodka to contribute to Carl's stash, plus a single malt and a bourbon. And some bar snacks of some sort.
  14. Thursday, hopefully early afternoon (25th).
  15. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. I just noticed that those were first Forum posts for both of you. Welcome to the Forum!
  21. Not sure about that, but the 24VAC in those wires can deliver an unpleasant shock. Don't ask me how I know that. 😬
  22. I used those for sprinkler control wire splices. Still good after being buried for 20 years.
  23. 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.
  24. Nice arrangement! When's the next party? 😁
