  1. They sure won't do it on the soundbars.
  2. Great looking room! That color reminds me of what I painted the living room of my house I had in Texas. Seems like it was a Sherwin Williams Roycroft Adobe, if I remember right.
  3. I doubt a person would ever hear any difference in the two unless they told themselves they did. Sounds like the "upgrades" you've done are sufficient.
  4. $7500 would definitely keep most riff raff away.

    Lest we forget

    I remember exactly where I was at that morning. And I also remember that I flew out of Newark the night before as we were done with our rep firm meetings in Upper Saddle River, NJ. Our original flights were scheduled for the morning of 9/11. I had just started with an A/V Manufacturers rep firm just 2 weeks before. I'll never forget that feeling the next morning when everything happened.
  6. Ok, trying to wrap my head around the above part in red. I definitely don't sleep on a power conditioner or a weight clamp. Did you mean "skimp" per chance? Asking for a friend... lol
  7. I built this amp from kit form and used the upgrade Russian PIO capacitors, front gain control, and used two taps off the output transformers for use of 4-ohm and 8-ohm speakers. This has been a great amp and may have 40 hours on it at that. I also went for the upgrade 6550 output tubes and this amp can run many variations as the bias is easy to adjust with a DMM. I'm just not using it enough and have bought other things I use more so it needs to go to someone that can enjoy it. It's conservatively rated at 35 watts per channel but always tests higher. I believe I have a couple of spare GZ34 rectifier tubes that will be included with it. New and assembled, this amp would be close to $1,500 shipped. I had it paired up with higher efficiency horn speakers which is where tube amps really shine but it also sounded very good on standard speakers. Asking SOLD and pick up in Searcy at the local police station parking lot. Yes, I can ship this amplifier no problem but be warned that it is heavy and would need some good supplies to ship it safely. But that is an option. Please let me know if any questions.
  8. Back to the top I also have a Latino VTA ST-70 with 6550 output tubes I built a few years back for sale. I just don't do much on the tube side anymore so it sits idle.

    Fireplaces

    I agree. Realtors still say "it helps with resale value". I'm not really sure why in the south with it being so hot. I put in a propane tank that just feeds my oven and the fireplace as I didn't want to have to jack with cleaning a fireplace, cutting wood, etc. I think we used it once or twice last winter; and it's remote control to boot ha Our last house didn't have one but it was an open floorplan style with no workable corners to speak of. My upstairs room does have corners on the short wall (15 foot) but I wasn't making it for Klipschorns, etc.
  10. Yep, I used these when I first rebuilt a pair of '78 model Type AA crossovers I used in my Belle clones. The seller in Bulgaria, I think it was, was great to work with and even matched all of them up that I bought. I've since sod the crossovers to another member here but haven't heard from him as to how he likes them. I thought they sounded great...for how well I hear these days. I ended up buying all new parts and built new Type AA's with Audyn Plus caps on the mids & tweetrs and the Audyn Q4 on the woofer side. Those sound quite good and hopefully can stay there if I decide to change out the K-500 horns over to K-510 or Eliptrac horns staying with the A-55G mids. But, yes, I do like these caps.
