  1. Looks like lunch has been figured very well
  2. My ghost plants just got a little taller than me which is 6 feet. If you take out the slightly elevated bed, they're easily 5 1/2 feet tall and I may have another honest month of growth.

    RIP Ric Ocasek

    Big Loss. Man o man
  4. I found an Asian style sauce recipe that everyone seems to like. Been using it for dipping roasted shishito's and Anemheim's in and just about anything else that is nearby. Soy sauce Brown sugar Sesame oil Minced ginger Lime Zest chopped 1 inch Tobasco pepper or equivalent
  5. I dont see how the true HiFi market for (blue collar) expensive items will actually grow in years to come. Work, kids and surviving is getting to where it eats all your time and income, not even counting the loss of interest in a niche hobby that has been diluted or erased by the necessities in our lives. I lived and breathed it up until my first born which came late in life. Now I understand how these luxuries that were a priority of desire are now are almost non-existent.
  6. Save me a couple of colors other than red... You're gonna have a lot of red to play with this fall
  7. How is everyone's crop this year? I thought I could eat a few hot items until I watched this

    Porsche Does It Again

    Lots of torque, very quick, but short on top. I think it being close to silent made it seem more impressive than it was. Although, you have to add that it was a four door (kind of) and all electric, 700+ horses and 750+ lbs of torque and it weighs more than a four door F-150. We have really just begun messing with electrics, so in time its what some of us will see racing in the future. Having said that... Even though its a record given its power output for a four door, Its still a ho hum time even compared to an old dinosaur with a mere 505 horses. Chevrolet Corvette C6 Z06 – 7:22.68
  9. Looks like that would be an echo chamber. But paneled up or push that rear wall out and...
  10. Im always excited to see what creation youre working on Dean.
  11. If you're going the AVR route look for something near the top three models or so no matter which brand you go with. I have been a Denon buyer for decades and it seems their AVR's actually dont fall on their face with 5 or 7 speakers hooked up from prior bench tests. They also have very good SNR values. Also, when you get near the top in Denon and Marantz, the build location changes to Japan rather than China. In most cases, you get what you pay for in an AVR these days.
  12. You could be right, but If he could identify the single bad channel after a couple of power source swaps, he wouldn't have to post this problem. I have to modulate the balance to get the sound right, but with each change of volume comes another change in balance. You can swap speakers and mess around with that for a while, possibly still scratching your head with random outputs continuing....or hookup another powered source and put an end to it right then.

  14. Well it could be the receiver if he is using it as a Pre, but has tried two different amps. He needs a fully different source to take the first step to determine speaker problem or electronics problem. We need more clarity
  15. That would be the easy diagnosis. He really needs to just bring in an AVR or something to actually see if its a speaker problem.
  16. If you have tried totally different electronics and the result is the same, you likely have a network issue. And unless its always been this way, which might point to a voice coil problem or someone swapped a voice coil or completely different driver, given you're not the original owner of the speakers. Could be a bad cap, transformer or even a loose connection or cold solder joint, somewhere. The signal travels at almost the speed of light, so you can rule out a cable length.
  17. You can hash it anyway you like, but that little mid on the CW gets in trouble pretty quick. I bought a pair of CW Ii's back in '86. Kept them for a few years and sold them to a friend and he still has them today setup in a large playroom. They sound great at 10-12 feet off or even 20 feet off, but you will never get past the little mid and Its why the Cornscalla became so popular. You cant compare the LS to the CW, in clarity, coverage or dynamics, the LS is on another level.
  18. That's a good point and in reality mine are done around 80-100 cycles, but my real point was LaScala's are THE speaker for Classical listeners, except the fringe few.
  19. Only your ears can make that decision, but Im really scratching my head on what little you will be missing and what massive amount you will be gaining.
  20. Some people cant get away from the CW's bass that hits you in the chest from across the room. If you're a classical nut, heading to bigger mids is going to be a revelation, but the bass is going to sound non-existent coming from CW's. However, the details, wide stage and richness coming from the LaScala's is some of the best that money can buy. Get you a sub to go with the LS's, but don't be surprised if you find yourself just leaving it turned off. You will likely hear much of the content in your favorite tracks that was simply washed with the boomy CW's. Its all about the midrange, which is the majority of what our ears hear throughout everyday life or in our music.
  21. A legend in his own mind. K's Eight feet apart and he actually tried to pull them out 3 feet from the corner? Closed backs or not, I cant imagine how thin that must have sounded. I bet he has a lot of fruity stuff hanging on the walls resembling his cardigans instead of any room treatments. He may have a lot of time under his belt in the Audio Mag business and testing, but he sure bungled this test up. Just another mustard sniffer that should be scolded by his peers " Because of the Klipschorn AK6's bulk—each weighs 220 lb—I drove my test gear the 177 miles to Art's place and measured the speaker sitting on a furniture dolly in his driveway"
  22. 90 in central AR right now. Heres the kicker, DEW POINT 79! Heat index is 105 deg. right now and could go as high as 112-115. Cant breath outside with the air saturation
