  1. Have him switch it to Line instead of Phono and see if that helps.
  2. I’m torn, I don’t like Burrow or Mahomes.
  3. If you click on Dave’s username you’ll see he hasn’t been on the forum since 2020.
  4. Man, Bohemian Rhapsody in Atmos is a trip! Voices coming from everywhere! There’s tons of songs on Amazon Music that don’t say they’re Atmos but do play as such. I’m guessing it’ll take a while for Amazon to update their entire catalog to show what songs are available in the Atmos format.
  5. I listen to Amazon Music very frequently. I bought a Fire TV Stick 4K for its ability to handle 24/192 hi-res audio for streaming. Tonight when I fired up Amazon Music I was surprised to see Dolby Atmos shown next to some of the songs listed! I went into the settings and saw a new Spatial Audio setting. Going in to it, the menu confirmed that my device can play Dolby Atmos. There is a box that you need to highlight and select Enable Spatial Audio. After selecting an Atmos track to play I confirmed on my receiver that it is processing an Atmos signal. I’m listening to some tracks right now, unfortunately at lower volumes because of how late it is but I’m pretty impressed by the mixes I’ve heard so far. They definitely add a really cool layer of dimension to music!
  6. Awesome! Worth the effort to get it up and running again.
  7. I know there’s a specific version of the PS1 that is coveted as a CD player for its audio quality. I’ve never tried one myself.
  8. The USB connector on the 51s may be damaged. I’d get a 3.5mm to stereo RCA cord and see if that works.
  9. I’m not sure what my mom did with my old Lego sets. I had quite a few of the generic spaceship-type ones and lots of others. I thought it would be cool to eventually build a few of them to be on each of my subs since they definitely have the real estate available.
  10. Well, apparently I’m the only one. 😄 Anyway, I ended up buying the Luke Red Five helmet and the Trench Run kits online and should get them in a week or so. We had a friend’s son who is 10 years old over today and I told him I’m going to need his help putting them together. He absolutely loves Star Wars and is excited to help out.
  11. Watch this video: Then consider the fact that the Klipsch models you listed all have sensitivity ratings of well over 90dB 1W/1M and it’ll answer your question.
  12. I agree. My THT subwoofers are incredible and go perfectly with my Hetesys.
  13. The other day I was sitting in my movie room in the basement and was noticing that my giant THT subwoofers look pretty sad. I'm 47 and grew up with Legos, although nothing like what's available today. Being a Star Wars fan, I thought maybe I'd get a couple Star Wars Lego sets and put them on top of my THTs. I'm not going to go crazy and get the ones with thousands of pieces or anything. I was looking at possibly something like these: Imperial TIE Fighter™ 75300 | Star Wars™ | Buy online at the Official LEGO® Shop US Death Star™ Trench Run Diorama 75329 | Star Wars™ | Buy online at the Official LEGO® Shop US Luke Skywalker™ (Red Five) Helmet 75327 | Star Wars™ | Buy online at the Official LEGO® Shop US Anyone else have anything like this in their movie room?
  14. The forum member I bought my THTs from is making four subwoofers using that 21" driver. Yowza!
  15. Dimming switches are a common cause of ground loop noise. Like was mentioned above, either try a different outlet or contact an electrician and see what they'd recommend.
  16. You'd probably be better off asking this question on a forum that deals with car audio.
  17. Yeah I would never take advantage of someone if a death had occurred. This was a case of the kid had wore out his welcome and just assumed his dad would hang on to his stuff forever. They were in pretty poor shape, one woofer was torn, the cabinets had been stored upside-down on the concrete floor in the guy's garage for who knows how long, grilles were in poor shape. I cleaned them up the best I could, replaced the grille cloth, listened to them for a year or so then sold them to a friend for $75.
  18. This didn’t involve a death but I once bought a pair of walnut Chorus for $50 because the guy’s kid had loaded up his garage with a whole bunch of stuff and the guy was sick of having them in the way.
  19. I don't mean sentimental value or attachment to them. I'm talking cash value. I asked my wife the other day if something were to happen to me, what would she do with my speakers, TV, etc? She said she'd list it all on facebook for free. I know she was just kidding but it made me think does she really know at least the approximate value of what I have? I see it fairly frequently that people join here and ask about speakers they've inherited.
  20. This, as well as unscrew and tighten every screw on the crossover input/output terminal.
  21. Oops! Quite a bit lighter in color than the current cherry veneer from Klipsch.
