Klipsch Fanatic (6/9)



  1. I'd rather play like Joan Jett than Ted Nugent. Google that story if you don't know about it. Also, it was a reasonably famous "man's" guitar before it was Joan's. "Jett bought her first Melody Maker from Eric Carmen, following the breakup of the Raspberries"
  2. I guess inexpensive is a relative term. I have found the Squire guitars I've played and owned by Fender far exceeded my expectations. Especially on the used market (Reverb.com) if you have a week or two to watch.
  3. 15 years old but new to me. Ebony fretboard and a kill switch. Single humbucker wound to Joan's specs. Headstock needs dusting, will happen with new strings. EDIT: I guess I'm a Tele/Jazzmaster/Strat guy at heart. Still can't warm up to the 3-a-side turners. Maybe that is why the Gibson Firebird is sticking around.
  4. You won't find any support for that crazy talk here. N + 1, right? You "need" every guitar ever made.
  5. A smart guy like you that can find endless cannon/cannonball answers has probably heard of this thing called the Internet and a search engine, no? https://www.cnet.com/tech/services-and-software/nfl-sunday-ticket-heres-how-the-nfl-on-youtube-works/
  6. This one followed me home. Mom, can we keep it? I'm a sucker for block necks over dots. Black binding does not hurt either. This is a Mexican Fender. A few pages back I was wondering about American vs Mexican vs Squire (China). This completed the trio, with a USA Gibson thrown in somewhere in the mix. Actually two Squires if I'm being honest about the addiction. I sold the American Telecaster kept the rest. 🤷‍♂️ go figure.

  8. Home theater tucked away from main living space or high traffic area where aesthetics matter? If rock band look is not a downfall these make killer centers. VA to MD not beyond the realm of possibility. https://baltimore.craigslist.org/ele/d/street-klipsch-la-scala-industrial-lsi/7637233665.html

  10. This is a new one for me. The weather is getting much nicer and lots of projects in the backyard. I fired up the Klipsch AW-650s a while back and all seemed good as far as I could remember. This weekend I had a pretty nasty hiss on one channel only. Did not matter if music was playing or not. If the amp was turned on it was hissing. Pretty loud, but did not get louder when turning up the volume. I chalked it up to 10 years or so of the outside elements or my Carver TFM-25 circa 1992 finally giving up the ghost. Recently I was tidying up my digital library. I've got several 5TB USB drives that I backup my NAS to. It takes a couple of days to move 4+TBs of data and when it was done I left the external drive attached to the NAS for probably a week or more. When I went to collect the drive today I noticed it was not in the front USB port as usual. It was connected to one of the BACK 4 USB ports. The shelf for the NAS was pretty full and the cord for the USB drive short. So the drive ended up on the shelf above. That shelf was for the Carver amp.....and the drive was directly under one set of speaker binding posts. I disconnected the drive, walked outside and the speaker in question was dead quiet. I guess the spinning drive and/or associated electrical emissions were being picked up by the amp's binding posts. In this case digital way more background noise than vinyl.😁

    I'm pretty clear on "I have a". Rep The line on it is decent Not like the Gen Sorry, no idea what any of that means. Send me the same drugs or the proper Rosetta stone to aid in translation. Guessing Rep might be Replica or Reproduction but confused as to why both it and Gen are capitalized. Line decent, maybe a typo for "time decent". As in it keeps good time. I'm sure it all makes sense in your head. Keep the tinfoil on so it doesn't escape.

    Drinks on the deck yesterday evening, with the spring sun low in the sky, powered up the Omega's lume. I'd take this over a cell phone any day
  14. Thanks, had some local interest but the trail went cold. Spring cleaning is around the corner...come get them before the land fill does and the drivers go to USAudiomart.
