    How you cooking your bird for Thanksgiving

    Maybe I'm missing something but wouldn't you smoke it after that?

    Room Treatment: Diffusion

    Bass traps can absorb up too high if you ask me. Tube traps add some nice diffusion.

    What I Got Today!

    He means the notches on the plates. Some 5ar4 Mullards have 4 and some have 7. Some Mullard 5ar4 plates might be smooth but I'm not sure.

    Speaker cables for Cornwall III?

    Disconnect and reconnect. Clean connections in case there is any corrosion.

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    Started listening to the soundtrack... Great music destroyed by horrible remastering. No dynamic range left at all. I just don't get it. Somebody got paid to do that! I'll still go to the movie when I can though if I can make it while it is still in theaters.

    Too much of a good thing

    Speaker cables for Cornwall III?

    Your setup is going to be pretty revealing. Lousy recordings will sound lousy and good recordings will sound great! Personally, I'd avoid the silver stuff.

    Help buying new TV, old one died (TV bought!)

    Hmmm... what model 70" Vizio was that I saw at SAMs for $699? Might have to go back.
  9. Bump for awesome restoration threads! Still good even without pictures. It is very sad that we have lost the photos though!
  10. I forget if it was the JJ or the Sovtek 12ax7 that always failed in my tester but worked fine. The tester was a Sencore Mighty Mite which basically just tells you "good" or "bad" and tests for shorts. All I really care about is if there are shorts.

    Yes, you have sufficiently been broken in.

    Heresy III

    Personally, I'd rather not have a sub at all unless I can get it set up correctly. Placement matters a lot and 2 are better than 1.

    Greg Roberts of Volti likes Border Patrol amps

    Neutral to me means that the equipment isn't calling attention to itself... gets out of the way of the music so to speak... not too warm and not too bright. Of course, those are all just words that mean different things to different people. If your amp is running hot enough to cook breakfast you might want to check the bias. If your amp is actually cooking breakfast I'm thinking you might consider separates. If you don't mind used I hear the Jetsons fired Rosie.

    NAS video streaming to (older) TV

    I loaded Plex server on my NAS. Plex app works fine on ROKU.
