  1. FYI: Discussion on K-510 "clones."
  2. Do my eyes deceive me, or are those a bunch of K-402 horns??? And are there also K-510 horns on that pallet and in the background (left side of photo)?? More photos:
  3. Ran across this set if you are still looking: https://dallas.craigslist.org/ndf/ele/d/plano-onkyo-integra-set/7303081754.html
  4. This seems like a pretty good price on what should be a very nice sounding 2A3 SET amp. Those with Klipschorns, Belles, La Scalas, and even Cornwalls should consider these. https://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649727134-triode-lab-2a3-set-amplifier/

  6. Last year HiFi man had some pretty good sales right after Christmas. I bought an open box HE400i for I think around $130 and the prices were so good I also got the HE350 for something like $80. Both are great for the prices paid -- it was less than $220 for both shipped. The HE400i is regulary $450. It's now on sale for $159 but appears to be out of stock. Check their website for other items on sale: https://store.hifiman.com/index.php/he-400i.html https://store.hifiman.com/clearance-sales
  7. The speakers aren't mine, but you can find more photos here (yes, they are gorgeous): @RobBeamer
  8. This is a great deal. I picked up a set from Costco in December at this price.
  9. I didn't know @kirby but this is still sad news. Looks like he was a local. Condolences to his family and friends.
  10. What do you consider vintage and what do you consider "crazy expensive?"

    Well it's happened

    Yeah, so would everybody else -- they would be working! 😁
  12. This is where I am now. I'm not necessarily looking for an amp (or sound system) that is "accurrate" or has a flat frequency response, great imaging, soundstage, or any of those other characteristics that "audiophiles" speak of. For me, the most important characteristic is musicality. How do I define musicality? Musicality is defined to me as the ability to extract the most musical enjoyment from the sounds I'm hearing. For me, this probably means reproducing sound that is closest to live sound. This likely requires good accuracy and a large soundstage. "Imaging" is a characteristic that has never brought me musical enjoyment so I don't pay much attention to that. While I wasn't there when the recordings I listen to were recorded, I do know what live music sounds like and live music has always brought an extral level of emotional engagement. This hobby/passion for me is all about the music and not the gear. I think too many "audiophiles" get caught up in the gear as the primary objective and may forget about the music. If that is how they get their enjoyment, then more power to them and I can't tell them otherwise. For me, it's important to listen to the music and not the gear. If there was a single box that could provide me with the level of musical enjoyment I want, then that's all that I would need. I haven't found that yet. Up to this point in time, tube amplifiers have typically given me more musical enjoyement than solid-state, but that's not to say there aren't great solid-state amps out there. What sounds best to me may not sound best to everyone else. My room is different, my ears hear different, and my brain processes what my ears hear differently from others.
  13. I probabably won't be able to help, but where exactly in "South Texas" are you? Texas is a big state as you know, unlike those tiny East Coast states. 😉

    Well it's happened

    You would last until Thursday! 😁
