  1. Sometimes a fresh pair of eyes can spot the problem quickly or have encountered the problem in the past Eyes forward and keep moving .....
  2. Exactly In Telecom- Data Comm businesses that employed me We always got the customer up and running, sometimes our gear was not the problem. We never held someone up for a service contract when they were down Most of the customers I visited worldwide volunteered that they would not meet with our competitors. Our competitors "made them feel dirty" when they had a problem. We just fixed it, frequently NC. Loved getting those no bid orders down the road, walking past the competitors in the lobby who were trying to get a meeting.
  3. Deltronics has two locations Chicago and Woodridge https://www.deltronics.com/our-locations They have repaired everything I have brought them. 12-15 pieces of gear. Yamaha, McIntosh, Pioneer Elite, Dual TT etc........ 100% success rate, 1 piece of gear had to go back found and fixed the issue NC inc equipment where the first shop I used "couldn't hear the buzzing" when I brought it back because they didn't fix the problem. Deltronix diagnosed the problem and fixed it. This place has at least 4-5 techs at the woodridge location If they need to order parts, it may take a few weeks He stands behind the repairs, so hook it up when you get home and use it. If it needs tweaking, bring it back inside the warranty. He has a store front off the tollway in Woodridge, and store hours. This is a professionally run business complete with front counter girl.

  5. Stopped into a resale shop in the country today and scored this gem The Man from Uncle Soundtrack 3 lalo schifrin tracks, and clevage ..... 1965 Stereo Pressing in "DynaGroove"
  6. Live From Deep in the Heart of Texas Purchased vinyl in Frederick MD 3 years ago Have kept it next to my TT
  7. Used prices for name brand gear are higher if Made in the USA or Japan Quality speaks for itself
  8. Reasonable price shouldn't last long
  9. Top 50 could be reduced to top 10 if that many Tied for #1 on their list Otis Redding & Fleetwood Mac Dreams Perhaps they need two lists 1. Rap, auto tune, and punk 2. Everything else that isn't ugly Astounding amount of Garbage in bottom and top 50, assume the rest is a sandwich of the dreck At least half of the songs are so bad or irritating they are unlistenable. Is rap music ? Is auto-tune singing ? Just because a band has a following, doesn't mean that they don't suck.. As to their Judges, haven't heard of most of them probably a bunch of weirdos........
  10. I considered building my own dollies decided the risk of falling off was greater then a few well placed screws into the bottom.
  11. 2 watts is screaming 1-100th of a watt is a typical volume on my LaScalas I would focus on a good performing Class A, for at least the first few watts
  12. Roundup of La Scala mods I did a few years ago I was trying to decide what to with mine https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/159419-lascala-update-upgrade/&tab=comments#comment-1926784
  13. Put 4 casters from Ikea screwed into the bottom Think their capacity is 125-175 lbs each Lifted the speakers 4 in Putting the mid driver at ear level sounds great. I seldom use the direct fire 12 sub I have connected. If on a hard floor, I like the casters. Also makes cleaning and servicing much easier
  14. Bottom covers should be easy to replace when you feel like it.
  15. If the Poly is a mat finish I would just ignore it If you want to veneer them or oil them then it has to come off As stated above, smoked glass tops with rounded edges and corners are mandatory Someone will always put a cold can or plant on the top when you are not watching As stated, take pics of everything inc the drivers and post them I put mine up on 3 inch casters from IKEA placing the mid driver at ear level and allowing me to roll them out for cleaning or maintenance As to the $2,000 everything is moving up which appears to be accelerating be glad you have them PS Put a general location in your avatar
  16. TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO BUY Sat.. Went West (old man) into the country to BBQ with a friend weather and temp are beautiful. Farmers have begun harvesting the corn, regret not bringing my camera Something about the harvest is magic. Lots of very dry days, increases the sell price of corn with lower moisture content. We started discussing the price of commodities we checked the Gold price and decided today is a good day to buy So lunch was put on hold and we headed off to Rockford Formerly a high value add aerospace manufacturing center now suffering a slow death, with the increase in potholes marking the decline in commerce and employment. Near the coin shop is a Audio restoration and repair shop, that does beautiful work. They have lots of museum quality rebuilds for sale.

  17. Hardly ever watch games, pros never Watched most of the Bama v Florida game today So much more enjoyable with the sound off. We use to turn off the TV sound for the Redskins games when I was a kid and listen to the totally biased AM radio coverage, it was great.....
  18. User friendly software and this won't get you pregnant the check is in the mail........
  19. Ask the artist what the standard terms are for logos do your own research first. I would think a simple hand written bill of sale for the "logo and design work" would be sufficient, and paid in full on the check, important words. Save a copy of the cancelled check stapled to the bill The Logo can be registered as a trademark, a standard practice at least back to the Romans, and probably earlier
  20. $200-300 $100 seems low, on the other hand he is probably not looking to retire from your job. My 2 cents
  21. Nice day yesterday, so I picked up my new grad Daughter and headed off to Dekalb for Lunch. Un-official speed limit on the Tollway is now 80 mph, posted 70. Dekalb has become something of a distribution center, with some giant warehouses there Facebook just completed a giant date center there, not a lot of jobs, but $800 million invested, monolithic building in a field. Ended up at a Mexican restaurant with outdoor seating under a tree, good meal. My fav Mex place near me died from CV-19, so the search continues
  22. I have it on vinyl One of the prizes in my collection Richard Burton was a great voice
