  1. Why to the front?
  2. That doesn't appear to be the original driver board. Hopefully everything is in good working ordere, great score if so.
  3. Ebay or price out piece by piece. Most are more than likely upgrading like you. Unless someone is building exact Belle clones, its going to be hard to sell this as a kit.
  4. I am here as well.
  5. I just ate a greasy double bacon cheeseburger with onion rings and feel t ok lazy to even make a drink. Maybe after a bit. But i did pick up a bottle of Sailor Jerry's rum for tonight.
  6. You animal. This is why we have man caves .
  7. I wired my basement this way, along with speaker wire, lets just say I wanted options.
  8. Not to knock Dave's recommendation, but I would be wary of those networks, something doesn't seem wright with them. Even the woofers, they seem a bit different. Not saying their not Klipsch, they don't look like my components out of my 78's. If it were me, I would keep an eye our for some square magnet k77s. Yes the prices do add up, hopefully not to discourage you. Good luck on your search.
  9. Could level matching be handled by gain control if equipped on the power amp.
  10. I dont need switchable inputs, well in a since i guess i do. That might the reason it may not work if i cant switch in between the tv for sound and dvd playback.
  11. I don't know what I am trying to achieve. I am planning on building a built in cabinet on the other side of the room and am planning on moving my receiver, blue ray player, etc... to this area. The TV and speakers will remain on the wall that they currently are. I am looking at upgrading my TV to a newer Sony Bravia smart TV (I am not dedicated to this brand, just as of now prefer it over others). From what I was told from the sales rep, that these are Android based and whatever apps are available from Android are available on this TV. If that is so, I would be using Sling TV, Plex, Netflix, Spotify and couple of others that aren't as important. If this is capable, then I will move my Nvidia Shield and PS3 down stairs to the theater area. My thought was to run an HDMI cable for audio from the TV to an OPPO UDP-203 than a HDMI back from the OPPO to the TV for Video (maybe not all of this is necessary with ARC) Then run the analog outs to a 5 channel amp to power my mains and surround sound and the subwoofer amp to power the sub. The OPPO would act as pre/pro and Blue ray/4k DVD play back.
  12. Anybody traveling from LA to Omaha, there are a pair of Belles I wouldn't mind getting my hands on plus I have a Jamboree that needs to go back that way.
  13. RIP Chuck.
  14. Dan you have a pm.
  15. Sometimes i find they get the closes shaves.
