  1. i very rarely buy and have never sold anything on ebay, so i guess i'm a little inexperienced in these matters. what can a crook do with your ebay password? i'm not understanding why someone would want it.

    1. Make fraudulent listings with your id in good standing, assuring trust from potential bidders.

    2. Bid on items as a deadbeat bidder with no intention of following thru (this can include bidding on their own auctions to push the selling price higher)

  2. Before you go crazy on this....try a few different recent DVD's.

    Some recivers have settings like THX, DTS, in which the rear channels will kick in vs prologic in which they won't.

    Also keep in mind that larger rooms are easyier to HT image correctly than small rooms due. Basiclly the farther you seating(s) are from the walls, the more life like the sound feild.

    Good Advice...

  3. So I guess the question is:

    Is a standard wide-screen tv set up 1:85 or 2:35? if it's 1:85, then you are watching a 2:35 film, which would explain the bars at the top/bottom...

  4. Collective Soul: Disciplined Breakdown. Southern progressive rock. CD

    A Southern progressive rock band that really doesn't fit into a particular genre. Something between alternative & progessive rock, really. One of my favorite bands of all time. I particularly like Full Circle,Listen, & Precious Declaration. A fantastic album from a uniquely creative band.

  5. I saw it and thought it was pretty good; although I'd stop short of saying it's a MUST see. It was very different & creative. One of the things I noted was that the "violence" was very untypical of Hollyewood (i.e., when shot in the head, a character's head didn't explode) but most of the folks in the theater where I saw if were incredibly shocked by it (for example, when the Major's face was cut). There was an inordinate amount of shooting in the film...I guess the Spanish had unlimited bullets in the waning period of WWII...

    I found it interesting that the only American in the movie played the two creatures (Pan & the creature at the table full of food) and that he was a voice-over.

    Overall, very dark & creative. Thought-provoking. The ending was very Narnia-esque.

  6. Ribbons generally give a much more transparent and spacious sound stage. They are also less efficient.

    They work a lot like electrostats, on a smaller scale. I have a pair of Carver Amazing Loudspeakers (version III). The ribbons are 48" tall, giving that open. spacious, non-directional sound:

    They radiate front AND REAR, which helps give them that spacious feeling & presence. They really must be heard to understand.

    Horns can be shrill if not properly managed (quality crossovers & amps), but almost always provide more "impact"...IMHO. Each have their strengths; it's mostly a personal preference. I have both and enjoy each for different reasons.

  7. This band came across a lament written by country songwriter John D. Loudermilk. It had already been a hit once -- in 1968 -- for Don Fardon. The song broke nationally in mid-April 1971, beginning a 22 week run on the charts. By July, it was the most popular tune in America.

    It wound up being not only their biggest hit, but the best-selling single the label had issued.

    The art shown is actually from their Greatest Hits album:
