  1. I have an sw115 that I never use... I am thinking of taking down to the goodwill
  2. Well you know... in 1960 it was less than 20 years after Pearl, and only a few years after Korea so all things Asian was exotic and interesting, as long as it wasn't your next door neighbor.
  3. this review has presets descriptions... But it's still Personal Choice... https://www.stereocheck.com/test/dac/shanling-eh3-review-a-highly-versatile-device/
  4. sharing family stuff? Mom (Japanese) and Dad (German) around the time they decided to make me in mid 1961... only to regret it early 1962 when I was born. That was pretty taboo stuff in early 1960's. My Great Gandfather from my Dad's Dad Mothers side (Braun)... on a Movie set in Hollywood.
  5. definitely... buy used.
  6. All Jubilees originally came with an active cross over... also, if you have purchased Heritage Jubilees you have consumer Jubilees... not Professional Jubilees Professional subforum. Whether or not if you need a subwoofer is up to your personal preference... and if you have Heritage or Professional Jubilees You made your purchase without learning about their capabilities and amplification requirements? Enjoy them, and be careful with your listening levels... the speakers can absolutely damage your hearing.
  7. My other choice was a x2d Hasselblad... it's the same sensor that is in the Fujifilm... albeit it as a MUCH MORE robust price point. At that price point I can step up to the fujifilm gfx100 ii... which will do 8k video as well as 100mp images.
  8. I am... I have a good eye, so Dynamics are where it's at for me. having additional resolution is not bad to have either. While I DON'T have a full frame camera, I think I am well past that market segment and can get good use out of a medium format. Like I had mentioned, I have always wanted a view camera... perhaps someday.
  9. I used to have a half frame Bell and Howell from back in the early 70's... which was when I used it. those negs were TINY. just like this set up...

    What I Got Today!

    It's support for the museum. They are available there.
  11. doesn't look like a Klipsch lens to me... maybe JBL, they seem to like that 'slot' form factor.
  12. I am contemplating get a medium format camera from the prosumer market... as I have always wanted a 8x10 camera, but the medium format Digital cameras have gotten so good and are 'relatively' affordable now. does anyone have experience with them? I can not really see a downside to getting one if my main point is still life, nature and portrait. I am looking at a GFX 50s II or GFA 100s II
  13. What a great story... I remember those days of being blown away. curious... what are 'east coast' speakers?
  14. I am NOT a huge fan of Class D... but it's what I use.
  15. I have the bases covered with these... and they aren't that overly expensive.
  16. well... that's a tough one. I DO think the 2050's have a different sound signature to the six nine one that I do enjoy/prefer over the entire 'range'... but it's not a GIGANTIC performance difference that one can take advantage of in a home setting. It is a change that is slightly > more than just 'Subtle'. In terms of the economics, I am okay in spending the money for the difference... I really don't measure things in a cost versus reward manner because there will always be a uncontrollable 'barrier to entry' price associated with equipment change, but I would NOT have done the swap had the Heritage model not had the same driver. Keeping the driver swap in the 'Klipsch' approved setup made it okay for me on a personal level. However, I am very curious in trying a Beryllium Diaphragm Driver... I just like/prefer the sound of beryllium and I think the 2050 gets me partially of the way there over a stock six nine one. To your original point... I do think that most would be MORE THAN happy with a 402/691 and AMT set up. I am trying for a bit more.
  17. yeah man... get with the program. they need color matching and need to be gussied up 😛
