    What I Got Today!

    no way that is a d40... ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I just ordered a couple pairs of persols... both prescription lenses. and
  2. am I the only one that is disturbed by this??? I guess that's the point though, correct? [:#]
  3. congrats on the klf30's OP, they are a wonderful speaker at any price... now, ROCK ON!
  4. I've been trying to find a decent 78rpm playback table and those prices are just to firm right now... lenco, empires and thorens 124's are all getting nice premiums and would set me back at least 750-1100$. I suppose sl1200's are probably where they have always been... 275-500'ish
  5. I think you are in the ball park 42 with your choices so far... specially at that price point. take your time and wait for a deal to come to you. one thing that surprised me was there are additional costs associated with TT playback. you can get a high output cartridge, but really a low output is better, which means set up or preamp that can amplify the signal. budget a few hundred for the HO/LO cart and if you go with a step up... a few hundred more. TT's prices have really firmed up over the last few months, so you may need to step up a bit in pricing. Once you get into the 500-750 range, doors begin to open up in as far as options. in addition to eBay... keep an eye open on Craigslist and at the 200-400 price point, consider your first TT purchase, not to be your last. you will want to upgrade later.
  6. installed 125's within the last few months in CW's... love it. install could not have been easier... plug and play. was it better, sure... did I hear a difference, hard to say as my old tweeters were shot. X over is next

    I've got no luck with equipment these last few weeks... this is about the fourth time a deal has fallen thru. maybe for the best... my search for good monoblocks continues.

    one handed milled salt and pepper mills. these things are made so well, I may never need another SP shaker
  14. Godspeed ES... you WILL be missed!
  15. between the II's and III's? for me it is that the III's are slightly more focused, whether this is due to age or anything is anyones guess.
  16. I finally found the video I had been looking for about klipsch efficiency...
  17. I use autocad, if I extrapolate a given "angle" over a distance, the variance grows. I prefer to measure all my angles, compound or otherwise... it's much more accurate. like this OP: a=0(anchor point) b=x c=y you measure the distance to B from 0, then you measure the distance to C from 0 then you measure the distance between B and C and that gives you an EXACT angle that is repeatable with great accuracy. this can be done anywhere along the X/Y axis, though it is always more accurate to measure as far away from 0 as possible to avoid multiplying an error. if X/Y are not level/square in both directions, then you need to also add those measurements of offset from level/square to your work. For me, the expression "angle" is nothing more than the sum of these measurements stated above... better to use that sum than some other form of expression (angle) if accuracy is the goal. FWIW... I digitize to the ten-thousandths... certainly much more critical than some bulbous building or structure. But do what you want.
  18. great choice here... you'll love the p5 once it's set up.
  19. my two channel can tell the difference.
  20. CAD's notoriously in accurate for angle dimensions because it rounds it up or down. the most accurate way to measure is to measure the x and y axis in relation to 0 as described above.
