  1. Thanks to all who chimed in on this thread. I decided not to buy these as the estate was wise to what they would bring in Japan and I wasnt willing to spend that much on speakers. Brad
  2. A lot has happened since I posted this thread. My mother passed away in Memphis summer of 2016 and I got to hear the Hartsfield speakers. They were positioned in the corners of the room and had pretty good bass. I brought a jazz album I knew well to play and the mids were very pleasing to my ear. In any case the speakers are not a matched set. One is a '53 and one is a '57 but they appear identical with same crossovers and drivers. Now I have to decide whether to go down that rabbit hole of buying them as they are just now available. Brad
  3. It is with great dread that Coffee Day comes every year and I think I can do what I did in my 30s which is drink coffee all day with abandon. By 1 o'clock I was non functional with the shakes and unable to focus on anything complicated. So I then just wasted away the rest of the afternoon listening to jazz. So really it wasn't that bad a day after all. But I do so love coffee. Brad
  4. Would settle for Jack. Can't blame a guy for shooting high.
  5. Tried that. Went back to one box for better perceived results.
  6. The only criteria was they had to be Phillips head screws.
  7. I am having some difficulty visualizing what that would look like.
  8. 1812 single barrel or Pappy van Winkels
  9. I discovered something that honest to goodness really makes a difference in speaker cables. I had a box of random screws laying around and for some odd reason I decided to see what would happen if I buried my speaker cables in the screws. Well lo and behold the improvement that was perceived was real! The scattering of signal fields cancelling out radiation has changed how I perceive the music coming from my speakers. Hoping to patent soon and make available for sale by Christmas. If interested please PM me and I will look into starting a kickstarter fund to help me offset development costs that include bourbon and beer. Man who knew? I'm a convert now. Let the fun begin. Brad
  10. Maybe I am an audiofool, but his explanations make sense to me. I have learned a long time ago that in matters of politics, media and art a great deal of opinion is involved and those should be taken with a grain of salt.
  11. But do you obsess about it?
  12. Well said. It's like adjusting the contrast.
  13. LOL But I do get the point. Music first, speakers/room then equipment. Brad
  14. Thanks for the reply. Ok. I'll bite. On what basis do you think so lowly of him? I have read several of his reviews and he strikes me as well grounded. Granted he is trying to make money from his web site but there is nothing intrinsically wrong with asking for donations, especially after you have read the material. Brad
  15. http://kenrockwell.com/audio/audiophile.htm I have always suspected that being a xxxphile of anything really wasn't good. Brad
