  1. I don't think so. I think larger speakers sell better in the local market. That front sound stage is hard to beat for quality or bang-for-buck and if you were closer I'd be asking about the RF-5s. That's my take.
  2. Oh, I understand and not offended...Otoh, your "picture taken afar" can be zoomed in on. Imagine someone posting their junk on here, took the photo from faraway and then called it "art" in the "Show me your favorite photograph" thread. 😞
  3. This is actually an easy one: 1) Klipsch can choose the atmosphere/content on their forum and we can choose to be here. {Note: One of my absolute favorite sections is no longer here where we discussed adult issues and was hidden from the general forum. That worked for 15 years until it didn't.} 2) While I agree that certain words shouldn't be omitted during adult discussions, otoh, I wouldn't be talking about Mile's album in a group of elementary school children because of that word alone. Here in the United States. In the US we respect the right of parents who don't want their kids exposed to certain subjects and that is the line I feel Klipsch is trying to walk. Btw, I have actually seen Courbet's painting above and I collect Museum Cards of the paintings I see...that said, DUDE! I am far from prudish but that is definitely over the line for a Speaker Forum. Just sayin....On a lighter note, I was showing off my card collection to one of the parents whose kid I worked with for years and we chat about travel. It was between classes and I had mom in the office about to look through my collection and as she removed the top card in one of the stacks I had and THAT painting was bigger in life and needless to say it put me in an uneasy (and VERY funny) situation. That's my take.
  4. I've done none of what you claim and never resort to name calling. Cut-n-paste where you think I have or report my post to a moderator. I also have no desire to pursue this.
  5. Well....I won't comment on your clairvoyant speculation and feel free to vehemently disagree on what you think you understand...Regardless, it's OT for this thread and forum while I've engaged on the topic at hand.
  6. As stated above. The ones who have editorial boards and abide by the FCC guidelines. They also have a Historical Record of what they've published in regard to factual news and are constantly peer reviewed. Again, this is political hyperbole. No. I don't trust "the news organizations that lied to any of us over and over again." I absolutely have a perspective, but it's based more in logic and reason than politics.
  7. https://www.ophthalmologytimes.com/view/aao-study-more-than-96-us-ophthalmologists-vaccinated-covid-19 From the link: A recent survey of US members of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) found that more than 96 percent of respondents indicated that they are fully vaccinated, while 78 percent of ophthalmologists surveyed said that 75 percent or more of their staff with patient contact are also vaccinated. The AAO is calling on its members to continue to build confidence in COVID-19 vaccines and encourage people to get vaccinated, including their staff.
  8. Respected News organizations have editorial boards that abide by FCC regulations. Social Media platforms are trying to do the same thing as not to be regulated by the government. Sure and look at what has come out with how they used bots and personnel to weoponize propaganda here and throughout Europe, especially in 2015/2016. Then consider the conspiracy theories and lies dealing with Covid-19 over the past year. THAT is why social media companies are trying to take action against disinformation. This is a skewed political perspective, imo.
  9. From the link: Limitations Although there is no definitive evidence that COVID-19 vaccination led to corneal endothelial transplant rejection, the temporal association and the occurrence of simultaneous bilateral rejection—which is rarely seen in clinical practice—suggest a causal relationship. The authors hypothesize that the host antibody response might have triggered the allogeneic response. Vaccine trials have shown that the BNT162b2 vaccine induces both adaptive humoral and cellular immune responses. Twenty-one days after vaccination, all study participants had elevated levels of anti-spike neutralizing antibody titers, antigen-specific CD4+ and CD8+ T cell responses, and proinflammatory cytokines such as interferon gamma (IFNγ). IFNγ-producing CD4+ T helper 1 cells are important in corneal allograft rejection. Cross-reactivity between the virus antigen-specific T cells and the HLA antigen-disparate corneal allograft endothelial cells may have contributed to the graft rejection in these 2 patients.
  10. https://nkcf.org/corneal-transplant-patients-covid-19/ From the link: An individual who has undergone corneal transplant should take the same precautions as anyone to avoid the virus – practice social distancing, frequent hand washing, masking when appropriate, and avoid touching your face and especially rubbing your eyes. A second concern is that the COVID-19 vaccine may trigger an immune response and cause rejection of donor cornea tissue. You and your doctor may have had a similar discussion about taking seasonal flu vaccines, and it is best to follow your doctor’s advice. Evidence that cornea graft rejection has occurred due to vaccines is limited to a handful of case reports over the last forty years. The COVID-19 vaccine does not contain a live virus, and there have been no reported cases yet of rejection of corneal tissue from the COVID-19 vaccine.
  11. No. I am pointing out you seem to be searching the internet to find reasons for folks not to take the Covid-19 vaccine and have been doing so ever since they have been available.
  12. PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: Consult your doctor on medical and vaccine issues and don't pay attention to those on the internet who continually rant against doctors and vaccines!
  13. Social Media companies have the obligation to monitor disinformation being promoted on their platforms. Fwiw, its easier to spread lies than the effort to debunk them and the former has consequences. That's my take.
  14. I believe the smaller surrounds were the RS-3s...Fwiw, no RS-5s. Good luck with your search.
  15. Fwiw, I did visit in the late 80s and through the 90s, but I lived there from 1968 to 1972. I still remember the address, 24A Europestrasse.
