    2019 Pilgrimage Tshirts

    You have my order!
  2. You can't sell a cable or wire for $400 if you don't have self proclaimed "audiophiles" that absolutely hear a difference, hype and marketing and it's done with so many products. I can promise you that if you take the time to do your own testing with simple 16 gauge lamp cord/14-2 solid copper wire/12 gauge stranded inexpensive speaker wire and $800 super deluxe, made from alien technology wire, it won't make a darn bit of difference in what you hear. In the end, you need to prove it to yourself (you can't be the one switching the wires in a blind test), so don't take my word for it or the company trying to sell you something you don't need, do that and you will know, and then you can buy those speakers. Not everyone, even on this forum, will agree with me, but I'm confident that the overwhelming majority do. It's a fun ride regardless, but you do have to wade through some BS to get to the truth. Are you going to the pilgrimage in Hope? Great time and so many people that have terrific, real world, experience that can help you spend and save money all at the same time. LOL
  3. What he said! It's just copper wire, I personally get all my cables and supplies from MONO PRICE, but copper, doesn't have a shelf life relative to the human life span, check the connections from time to time and if any of the copper is exposed, trim off any oxidised areas and reconnect. Don't get caught up in snake oil BS when it comes to wires, it's a load of garbage and you could be spending your money on more equipment and Klipsch speakers. 😅 IMHO

    Should be simple enough to print your avatar pic out and put it on a tag. I'll try and do it this afternoon and see. I'll post the results.

    I will give it a shot and see what comes up. I'm sure it's going to be another great time. Looking forward to catching up with you as well.

    Texarkana is closer, but I can't get any good prices to fly into there and Little Rock is getting me much better rates.

    Daytona 500 Crash

    Not this one. It was all Clint Boyer or his spotter. He had the car cleared if he didn't come back up, took a lot of great cars out that had a shot, which really sucks for them, and Clint, still not sure which one of them was responsible.

    Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    Anytime I go to the Dominican it's nothing but El Presidente, we even have a local drive through get it from time to time for us when we're home. This beer will hold it's own against many others. I was there last year and could have had any beer, it was all included in our package and it was nothing but Presidente for me, and a couple gallons of Mamajuana. When in Rome! Now Corona, IMHO, that is skunk piss no matter when or what you drink it out of (I think that's the flavor they are going for, or skunk piss with lime) Anyone that I've ever given a Land Shark to, that was a Corona drinker was instantly switched and that's without adding fruit. I also don't add orange to Blue Moon, but that's just me.

    Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    Totally agree with that. I don't drink Coors Light because it's some great tasting beer, it's what I drink when there's a party going on or I'll be working outside or in the shop for a long period of time and want to have some adult beverages without getting bloated or obliterated.

  12. Nice find Jim. Been listening to Joe for a long time. One of my favorite guitarists.

    So this is what it's all about

    Welcome to the forum. What he meant to say is now you need to buy a few more pair of Klipsch and get into the ditch with the rest of us, chasing down the "best" of what Klipsch has done, only to find out that your first pair will always be remembered as really good and the will reside in one of your many setups. 😊

    I do the same. Most of the time I'm disappointed and get something I know I like, but on occasion, I find a winner. This is excellent! Expensive here $40.00 for a case, but great stuff.

    Somehow, even if they can, I don't see one more beer added to the 30,000+ already available in the world, having any impact on the market, regardless of what the yeast flavor might be, but more power to them. I'd rather have them focus on bringing back a T-Rex so we could thin out the herd. 😅

    How Much Do Your Neighbors Love Klipsch?

    Not if you have enough power behind it. Just start out really loud and anything less than that is considered cordial by your neighbours.

    How in the helr is pusst a word that gets blocked? Really, let's not get too politically correct here. It's not sexual, not political, really, come on, calling someone a pusst is a term of endearment. LOL

    Don't be a *****. You should have negotiated the weekend as part of the employment deal. Is that snarky? I think not, hope to see you there. 😅

    RF-7II amplifiers...

    Yes, but I have no personal experience with either one of those pieces but I can say with confidence that running a pair of RF7's with anything pushing out 200+watts can provide them with what they need to reach their potential and then it comes down to preference regarding how that particular amp sounds to your ears and in the end, that's all that matters, not mine or anyone else's opinion.

    RF-7II amplifiers...

    I have run many different amps and some receivers on my 7's from a beast old Onkyo TX890, 805 and the 7's sounded very good at high levels, then some Carvers pushing around 300-350, Emotiva XPA5, Behringer Inuke (had one laying around to try it out) and a QSC rated for 500-600 at a 4ohm load. The QSC happened to be a DCA series, but that series has more to do with some features for cinema applications and is the same as some of their other series. The Carvers and Emotiva were a noticeable improvement over the receivers, though they weren't bad at all, but the QSC out performed all of them clearly and you don't need to spend anything approaching your budget. If you go out hunting on the clean used market with a $500 budget and understand the market you will have more clean power than you will ever be able to utilize and if you want to try out a lot of different things until you understand that from personal experience, you can buy and sell and it costs you nothing if you buy it for fair market value. Just my .02

    2019 PILGRIMAGE DATES APRIL 25-28, 2019

    Last time I think Tom and I started with about 6 bottles between Tequila, Scotch and Irish Whisky, but I had to babysit Tom on Saturday night when he was getting into deep thoughts and conversation regarding "we're all Americans" and "look at how amazing the stars are out here" LMAO, I still bust his *** about it every few months although he's cut back on his intake of Johnny Walker.

    How Much Do Your Neighbors Love Klipsch?

    I'm in the process of looking for 15-25 acres and when the right piece comes along, I'm going to build and get a little more elbow room. Until then, I do try and keep it respectful regarding the hours, with some exceptions when I'm working in the shop with the doors open and there are a few adult beverages involved. 😈

    How Much Do Your Neighbors Love Klipsch?

    True story. I bought my home about 10 years ago and installed 2 small outdoor speakers for the pool, the first day that I was outside and playing them at background noise levels I met one of my neighbours that came walking through the woods on a mission, all 5' of him, fists clenched, stomping through my back yard and his face (I'll call him troll) was already bright red. Rather than having a calm conversation about his total disdain for music, he proceeded to go into a little 1 minute rant about my lack of consideration for others, how rude I was, my loud music (it was so low that we could have had a normal conversation without raising our voices at all), blah, blah blah. After the first minute and when he finally took a breath and wiped the spit off of his bottom lip, I reached out my hand and said, "hi, my name is Pete and I'm going to count to 10 and if you're not back in your hole you will be escorted from my property and you would be making a mistake to ever step foot on it again" "one, two" never though those little legs could move that fast. LOL I already knew that my township had no zoning or noise ordinances and I proceeded to pull out the RF7's and a sub and put them on the deck and worked the rest of the day outside, demonstrating what "loud" actually was while playing Metallica, AC/DC and various other artists that would raise the hair on his arms. The neighbours got to know me that day! Over the next few years, I only got to visit with his golden retriever who loved me and would come over and play every chance he could get away. It was even funnier when Denise and I went to our home golf course and he had taken a part time job as the starter and left his post when he saw us pulling up to the first Tee and had no clue that we were close friends with the owners and golfed there every week. Some people are just miserable in their lives but the rest of the people that live within listening distance are all positive and at times when the shop is rocking, I will get requests for specific music. I was never built to live in a city or even a development. Wish I had Rodney's spread! Rock On!

    Anonymity vs Privacy vs Security

    That a large enough mass of citizens have not been pushed to their break point which presents a larger problem when the divisions within that mass of citizens gets to the same breaking point regarding a portion of the mass, in addition to the idiots in charge.
