  1. I love S-works turbos for comfort and speed, but they are not the most durable. Of course with Specialized there is an S-works tax, but usually this time of year they do a BOGO sale. You can't beat Gatorskins for durability but they are hard as a rock IMO. I would like to check out Pirelli tires, perhaps this summer. The Michelins you are looking at may be a good compromise. Let us know what you end up with and your opinion of them. Good Luck and stay safe out there!

    I'm curious where you bought from. If you are in Roscoe, I live 15-20 minutes from you; I'm North of Belvidere


  3. I wrote "not that much more difficult". IMO it's worth the extra effort, but I defer to you, you're the tapped horn expert. I've only built 1. I don't know why I bother offering my opinion anywhere on the internet anymore. This forum, like so many others are so frustrating to me lately. I hate the internet, I think I need a break!


  4. If you don't already have the drivers, I would be considering tapped horn subwoofers. You are allocating a large space for them to occupy already. You will get a lot more bang for your buck with tapped horn, and the builds are not that much more difficult.

    Has that original crappy clunky interface gotten any better with Amazon HD yet?  What I mainly didn't like about it was the inability of being able to control the desktop app from a phone or tablet like how Spotify does it.  But what I loathed more than that was, if you saved an artist, you couldn't just go to that artist and see all of their disography; it's like you had to know up front what you wanted to go to.  I really wanted to like it and keep it but stayed with Spotify....which also works well with all my Google Home devices.  Not to mention that Android Auto didn't support it at the time.  Maybe that's different now.

     

    But if they could make those two things work, I'd consider.

    Amazon HD music currently works with Android Auto, I use it all the time in the car. I've been using it for several years now, and once the HD version was available I upgraded right away. I search by artist all the time, and have never had a problem finding an entire discography. Usually there are multiple versions of popular albums with Ultra HD tracks playing up to 24 bit / 96kHz Flac files. I use the desktop app at work and feed USB out from my PC into my DAC and then to head phone amp. Phone app will not control desktop app like Spotify though.


  6. I use Amazon HD also and I'm very happy with it. There is a fair amount of exclusive content. I like having several versions of my favorite albums available. Bonus content, demos, etc. The user interface isn't flashy, but I have yet to be disappointed with the available content.


  7. Are you using the HDMI ARC(Auto Return Channel) input on your TV? If you are then it's intended the the Klipsch remote will control some TV functions. If you use a different input/ output like optical, then it should not be an issue. Still, IR or RF interference is possible.


  8. My Costco has that Dyson unit on sale for $350 (from $500). I thought about it, but passed because we had recently bought 2 cheaper units to cover our home. I've always had good luck with Dyson products.

  9. I've been considering the Plasti Dip white with "pearlizer" to paint my Oris horns. The good part is if I don't like it, I can peel it off. Also hoping the rubber texture of Plasti Dip will tame the horns a little. I will be following your path here to see what works for you. Pearl white is my choice as well. Good luck!

  10. Another thing that is often overlooked and worth noting when choosing a cartridge is matching the compliance (suspension) with your tone arm mass. If you are buying a complete new setup from a manufacturer, then this is already sorted out for you. If you are piecing together your own turntable, then you need to be aware of your tonearm mass and cartridge compliance relationship.

    Thanks! I love idler drive turntables. I have a pretty large Plinth, that I made, under my TD-124, but not nearly as large as yours vertically. I really like the scale and visual appeal you have going! Thanks for sharing.
