  1. Maybe pictures will help... these are pretty cool looking networks!
  2. Maybe he is trapped under one and can't reach the keyboard?
  3. Well, the NBS is the Cat's meow... the cat's whiskers... the tiger's spots... the bee's knees... and that ain't no applesauce cause I knows my onions.
  4. I can just hear my wife saying the same thing about speakers.
  5. Wasn't that rare for 1955? Did they normally sell singles back then?
  6. A pair? Do they match in appearance?
  7. Whereas bracing the bins can be a huge improvement. How much improvement could depend on condition of the cabinets (loose joints).
  8. I like the RCA cleartops... decent tubes
  9. Yes, it is about getting your room right... speakers and seat in the right place. When you have a room that is not just for audio... other family members use it for other purposes, it can be very difficult to make some of the changes you might need. You can get closer though. While following the advice of the book I'd turn off any EQ. You can redo the EQ settings when you are done. Hopefully, you won't need much.
  10. I have both... he is a not a great novelist but both are full of good information. It is more a series of tips and advice. I think I'd prefer the book because it is easier to refer back.
  11. Some warehouse pictures... That's Michael Fremer way at the back of one of them. ALSO: Records that look good too, Blue Heaven Studio, and Marquise Knox
  12. This seems really strange to me but I know they DO sell used as well as new. That's how it started... selling used records. I've been there and seen their warehouse in Salina, KS as well as the record manufacturer across the street, Analogue Productions (https://www.discogs.com/label/57179-Analogue-Productions) both started by Chad Kassem. They are a small shop but I cannot imagine that you have anything to worry about them making it right. Chad has been putting on the Blues Masters and the Crossroads for over 20 years in Salina. I finally got to go last Fall and it was a blast! 2 nights of great blues at the Blue Heavens studio that was formally an old church (great acoustics to say the least). We also took a tour of the manufacturing plant which was really cool to see! They have been contracted to repress a lot of old stuff as well as the new stuff they are cranking out at the studio. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acoustic_Sounds,_Inc. I'd say to give them time to make it right and let us know here.
  13. http://getbettersound.com/index.php I recommend Jim Smith's book or DVD's often because he helped me a lot. It is geared to 2 channels but getting the room right is important no matter how many channels. Your speaker and seat placement might be limited to a small number of options but I'll bet you can improve. Your first reflection for the left channel is rough! Work on your room as much as you can. Not all improvements have to be expensive!
