  1. https://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649642808-music-first-audio-classic-v2-special-edition-tvc-pre-amp/ Posting for a friend. First class, knowledgeable, honest seller. I’ll take credit for bringing him into Klipsch family, thank you very much!😉

    It’s not that complicated a rule; if you are even with or not behind the last defender when the ball is played by your team you are on side. I think VAR is also nitpicking; I’ve seen offsides called by VAR where the attacking player’s shoulder might be behind the defender as he is leaning into his run but his feet are even with the defender and they call him offsides. Ridiculous. Also, I strongly dislike the new “keep the flag down until the play is over” method used now in calling offside.

    Can’t sleep

    I’ve been through this. You have to train or re-train yourself to sleep. Establish a wake up time. Start with trying to get five hours of sleep. Do not get in bed before that time. If you want to wake up at 6am don’t get into bed until 1am. Bed is only for sleeping and sex, no reading, watching tv, eating, etc. Turn light out immediately when getting into bed. If you don’t fall asleep within 20 minutes, get out of bed and do something like reading, listening to music until you are feeling tired again and then get back into bed again. Once you are sleeping 5 hours, back up your go to sleep time by 15 minutes and continue this routine until you are sleeping that length of time. Then add another 15 minutes, so on and so on. Try to limit screen time and eating before bed. Don’t exercise in the evening. Keep a sleep log. Don’t sleep in on non work days, follow the routine. Eight hours of sleep is somewhat of a myth and an ideal that not many attain. But if you’re like me and can go from one or a couple hours of sleep to five or six hours of sleep it will feel like a victory. This “therapy” will probably take weeks or a few months to work. It is exhausting (no pun intended) in the beginning but will work if you stick with the program.
  4. Unfortunately UPS will probably make things as difficult as possible. On a positive note, LTA is a wonderful company to deal with.
  5. Quicksilver Integrated. Tube compliment is eight el84 and two 12dw7.
  6. I agree that the best outcome is where both sides walk away happy. The second best outcome, imho, is when both sides walk away unhappy because it is probably a fair deal.
  7. There is a guy in Delaware parting out klf30's. No affiliation and don't know if he is selling horns. Here is a link to one of his CL ads. https://delaware.craigslist.org/ele/d/hockessin-klipsch-klf30-oem-midranges/7178912216.html
  8. Hi, What color are the RB5's? Thanks.
  9. https://philadelphia.craigslist.org/ele/d/wilmington-klipsch-heresy-iii-dark/7181170468.html Disclaimer: I do know the seller. He is very knowledgeable, honest and a nice guy. Buy with confidence.
  10. What’s not in a nugget? I think of some nuggets as the scrapple of the chicken world. I do like scrapple and nuggets though. Paraphrasing a comedian (don’t remember who) about scrapple “ I wouldn’t eat anything with the word crap in its name.”
  11. Only representation of a bear market that I could understand:

    Jokes?

    Way back when Wendy's still had their dollar menu, for lunch every Tuesday I would stop at a particular Wendy's drive-thru and order a JR. Bacon Cheeseburger and a JR. Cheeseburger deluxe ($2.00; how do you think I was able to afford my stereo habit). They would never get the order correct and I would take whatever they gave me. Double bacon cheeseburger and chicken club, check, grilled chicken sandwich and a single, no cheese, check. I always looked forward to my surprise!
  13. From reading your posts and ads, I would say (and feel free to correct me) that you like to experiment with different gear but are not a collector. That is my modus operandi. My purchases/sales amounts have to zero out or be to the plus side whether I keep something or not. I am not a flipper although in the past I have done my share of flipping but always tried to add value to whatever I was selling. I'm to the point now with my system that I don't know how I could make it better without significant outlays of money that I'm not willing to spend and I've come to realize different isn't necessarily better. The chase/hunt is always more fun than the acquisition/kill.
  14. Quicksilver. Not often mentioned here but excellent gear. You can find mini mono'and mid mono amps very reasonably if you want to stay with your preamp or they make an excellent integrated amp. Full disclosure, I own the integrated.
  15. Maybe. I just got a pretty good price on a pair of RP160M from Crutchfield. I lucked out in that they were in the outlet, but they have new, sealed pairs also.
  16. I suspect only irrational reasons and the accompanying attempts at justification.
  17. Crutchfield has a good deal on RP160M (predecessor to RP600M). I just bought a pair and they sound very good.
  18. No longer for sale. I'm glad there wasn't interest! Bought a pair of RP160M from Crutchfield and it is a great combination. You're loss is my gain 😀😀!
  19. Will it be a CWIV vs Spatial shoot-out, winner stays?
  20. This discussion reminds me of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQKrmDLvijo
  21. 200, 400 or 700? It's been 40 years but I had an original 400 that was great and issue free. Upgraded to a 700 Series II and I had a lot of issues, so many that PL sent me a replacement. The new replacement had a slight hum so I got rid of it immediately. My brother had a 700B that was excellent and issue free. If you do go PL, I recommend using it with 8ohm nominal speakers. Also there is a company called White Oak that offers highly regarded rebuilds that address the known problem areas with PL amps. Here is one for sale now from Music Technology in Virginia. https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/doc/ele/d/crofton-highly-modified-phase-linear/7154297553.html
  22. Bump. Now &1495.00 plus shipping. Box is 18”x14”x10”, weight 41 lbs. ships from 19702.
  23. Different parts of my body are different ages. Fortunately my state of mind (not mental capacity, that has aged significantly)) is still around 12-14. If not for that I would be a cynical, sarcastic curmudgeon. Oh wait......
