  1. I don't know or have the energy to answer your extensive question. I thought you were simply asking a center match question. Sorry.
  2. Which KG speakers do you have?
  3. I started taking placebos and I feel much better now (sarcasm for oldtimer). Keith
  4. That's a steal Charles. Problem is virtually no one knows anything about the Synergy Premiere line from 20 or so years ago. After ear fatigue from other Klipsch speakers I owned years ago, Chorus II among others, I decided to attack the harshness from another angle. New crossovers that attenuated the harshness or new tweeters or titanium diaphragms (worse) to replace the stock phenolic, whatever it takes to tame the harshness that ultimately changes the speaker wasn't for me. So I sold them and bought Synergy Premiere speakers. The high end of the naturally warmer sounding speakers are easily increased with brighter sounding amplification and interconnects (Cardas warm, AudioQuest brighter). And placement (toe in) and careful adjustment of bass, turn the volume down until the bass disappears. We hear a lot about the built-in amplifiers. No amplifier lasts forever. I've been listening to my KSP's lately and they still sound great, I bought them 18 years ago. So good luck with your sale. If you were closer I'd buy them myself. $350 is a steal for those speakers.

    What I Got Today!

    After being urged by my Brother and a good friend to try marijuana for pain relief and an escape from the chitty days, I asked my oncologist if he could prescribe some medical MJ. I told him I knew nothing about MJ, in fact never even seen any. I told him my friend, former cancer sufferer, had recommended it for pain relief. The Doctor asked me how much I needed so I told him I had no idea. I asked, you think 2 pounds would be a good start? Keith
  6. Well, I'm still alive. But that's about it. I'm pretty much useless. And cars, believe it or not, in the last 3 months I've already put over 100 miles (barely) on the car. The wife has been chauffeuring me around in her Honda. The navigation is so complicated to use it's almost useless for me. I'm sure Nashville is a nice place to live but I told my wife that it's a toss-up as to whether I'd rather just go on and kick the bucket or continue to go back for the next year. The traffic is unbelievable downtown. And I haven't found a good cup of coffee yet. Take care.
  7. You probably even still use cash you old codger. Checking in at a hotel in Nashville a week ago and the clerk says 'we don't accept cash'. I busted out laughing. WTF Keith
  8. Thanks Carl. Death seems like an attractive option nowadays. Keith
  9. I had a 1" tumor on my brain stem a few months ago mr clean. They knocked it right out with full brain radiation. Of course there are side effects and I'm still suffering those. Tell Tom to remain positive. He can do it. Keith
  10. Then those promises of free health care, free college tuition, a national basic income and 22 trillion dollar debt are nothing to worry about. Not that I was worried about it anyway. Keith
  11. As far as I know FEMA offers relief, as stated on their website, not a guarantee to rebuild personal property. The only thing political about that is proper funding and the manpower needed to implement their mission quickly. From the billions spent on Katrina to the hundred million spent on Michael it's baffling to me as to how the US can continue covering these costs in the future. Keith
  12. This is what we, collectively, voted for. Expect more of the same. Keith
  13. Thanks for the suggestions fellas. Keith
  14. I've got to go to Tennessee Oncology in Nashville in a week or so. I may have to stay 1 or 2 nights. After a cursory check of hotels in the area I have decided to stay 20-30 minutes south of Nashville, say Brentwood or Franklin area. Does anyone have any suggestions for staying in a safe area near Nashville where rooms are not $250-$300 a night? Thanks. Edit> or areas NOT to stay. Keith

    I Retired Yesterday!

    Congratulations Kevinmi. You're gonna love it. I'm not sure that most people understand what retirement is really like. If you think about it, most peoples lives revolve around their jobs. Everything is scheduled around the job. Our jobs control our lives. Retirement means that all of your time is free. It just takes preparation, as Coytee said, and taking care of yourself. I worked all the time for 36 years so retirement is like NOT getting kicked in the testicles every day. Prepare yourself and be greedy, get all of it that you can. These retirement years have been the best years of my life. Keith

    What I Got Today!

    The 168 mile round trip yesterday was all that I could stand yesterday so I finally got around to reading the literature today Chuck. So here it is... 6.2 LT1 V-8 Compression Ratio 11.5:1 455 HP @6000 rpm 455 lb.-ft @4400 rpm 373:1 axle ratio 0-60 4.3 seconds 12.5 seconds @ 115 mph top speed 175 mph stopping distance 60 to 0 mph 107 ft. 6-piston monobloc Brembo front 4-piston rear 3685 lbs That's about it other than I can describe perfectly to you the grill on the new Mustangs. Well maybe not perfectly because they were way back looking thru my rear view. Keith

    That's what people put on their Mustangs. Keith

    Nothing wrong with that. The automatics are quicker than manuals. The SS 1 LE package is only available w/manual. Keith

    What I Got Today!

    That's a good one. They're definitely fun to drive. I took a curvy road short cut coming home, about 9 miles. These cars are fun to drives in curves, just point and shoot. The Recaro seats hug dat a$$ and the steering is precise. The only problem is da right foot. Keith

    What I Got Today!

    I tried to find an article from a few weeks ago Chuck but couldn't find it. The article was a comparison of late '60s early '70s to today cars. All times were at or near half that for the new cars as compared to older. Like 8.8 seconds early cars versus 4.4 seconds 1/4 mile. 450 HP with 3.73 gearing is stout. I think the torque matches the HP. Keith
