  1. That's why you should only play tapes in a "no fly zone"!
  2. I've got 2 of them, one is 3 3/4-7.5 speed two track, one is 7.5 -15ips speed two track. Both have 4 track playback heads as well. The Teac branded one is the A7300.
  3. They're actually more of a tomato soup red color in person. I've got blue ones, too!
  4. Don't plug in any tube gear with voltages that high!
  5. Otari has a good reputation as a dependable deck. What type of heads on it, 2 track or 4 track? I have 4 decks (2 Ampex and 2 Pioneer) and they are all 2 track. You lose half of your recording time, but the sound is much better. Watch out for older tapes, there is something called sticky tape syndrome. The coating on the tape will be sticky and gum up your deck in a hurry. You will know right away if you run into one. They're are a couple of companies making brand new quality blank tapes, and the prices are often comparable to what people are selling vintage tapes for. Old Maxell and TDK tapes hold up good. Ampex tapes not so much.

  9. It was nice meeting you and your son yesterday. I'm glad to hear your wife is on the mend. Having danced with the big C myself 9 years ago, I know how scary it can be.
  10. I had a great time at the gathering. It was nice having MoparDave along for the ride to keep me company and be my navigator.The Jersey Mike's subs were to die for! DizRotus' super Heresies and HIP's were outstanding, putting out way more sound than their small size would lead you to believe was capable. On the other end of the spectrum was Claude's monster subwoofer loaded system that registered at least a 7.2 on the Richter Scale! A truly amazing experience to see what can be accomplished on a small scale and a grand scale. Meeting people in person that you have only corresponded to on the Klipsch Community was really a treat, as everyone had a common like for good sounding speakers. Can't wait for the next gathering!
  11. Well, that comment did it for me. People who believe in some kind of guy in the sky will believe anything, I guess!
  12. The Back to the Bricks car thingy goes on all next week up here, with the cars show on Saturday. Last year they had 600,000 people attend. Its getting out of hand. Soon there will be a cruise all the way from Flint to Detroit.
  13. I went down a similar path, and ended up making much bigger tratrix horns, which I feel greatly improved the sound. Of course, they are now getting away from being stock looking (or sounding) Klipschorns. I think I've reached the limit on how far I can modify K-Horns, although I do have another set of bass bins and another project in mind.
  14. That's always the worry since I hardly drive them. One hasn't been driven yet this year! Plus they burn premium gas.
