  1. Interesting in using mylar for tweeters. Back in my younger car and home audio days, the mylar tweeters were what was used in the cheap speakers. I know they're nothing like those, though.
  2. RIP, Eddie. Thanks for all the great music growing up. I will definitely spin some tunes in you honor tonight and drink a few cold ones to you. One of my favorites growing up in the late 70's and into the 80's. Once that cancer had spread like that, it was only a matter of time...unfortunately.
  3. Although I did order this 52 pound Onkyo amp earlier this week. Probably won't get it till end of next week with most manufacturers being in Denver for CEDIA convention. Looking forward to seeing how it sounds. With all the new caps, this ol' Rockford amp does sound good, though.

    Never Forget

    My wife grew up with a gal in her small town that was one that perished when the first plane hit Tower 1. Somehow, amidst all of the wreckage and carnage after both towers fell, two of her rings were found on the ground and returned to her parents. Simply amazing story. She was an airline attendant on board Flight 11. https://www.thedailybeast.com/910-the-day-before EPILOGUE: Sara Low was on American Airlines flight 11, which flew into the north tower of the World Trade Center at 8:46 a.m. on September 11. On July 18, 2002, her father flew from Arkansas to New York to identify her remains. Two of Low’s rings were found in the debris and are now worn by her mother and sister. Me personally, I had just flown out of Newark on the morning of September 10th...24 hours earlier. Every year it gives me chills thinking about it as we had decided to leave a day earlier.
  5. I decided against the CD player as I just don't see myself using it. In March 2015, I started ripping my CD's to the NAS and have done so for any CD's subsequently bought since. They were ripped into NAS then stuck in a cabinet since we had nowhere to put them in the last house. I've got a Toshiba DVD player from years ago that will read DVD-A and SACD if I want to play those 10 to 15 discs of those that I own. But the amp is on the way. 👍
  6. Just saw one of these Pioneers that seem pretty cool. Apparently there are many manufacturers out there that have them these days. https://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Home/Blu-ray-Disc/Elite-Blu-ray-Disc-Players/UDP-LX500
  7. Are they for custom install I take it? Edit. Yes, I see that they will be. Based on the looks of that horn, it seems like a Cornwall IV mid horn which apparently has good upper range response capability like the Epic CF-3 & 4.
  8. @Thaddeus Smith Ok....that really made me laugh. You must have a treasure trove of gifs, memes, etc. lol
  9. I just don't want to buy it and have it there for the "looks factor" alone, which is about what it would end up being I'm sure. I've about talked myself out of that part. Heck, I've even got maybe 10 SACD's that I haven't listened to in 10 years and I have a DVD player that will read DVD-A and SACD.
  10. I'm deliberating on the CD player still. As cheap as it is, I haven't even touched a CD player in maybe 4 years since I'd ripped all my CD's as FLAC files to an NAS. I just wonder how much I'll actually use this thing when it's all said and done.
  11. Cherry would definitely be one of my main picks of veneer choice along with Walnut, Whitewash, and even Black Satin. Any oak would be my last choice and would take if the price were right. lol Beautiful speakers.
