  1. I don’t have any experience with either models but I have quite a bit of experience with both sub brands. I’d go REL all day. Build and sound quality is much higher with the REL. Klipsch does make great subwoofers but the past two Reference subs I have owned, left much to be desired. They do thump away but I miss the build quality of the RT/RSW lines. I am still hoping for a 15” sub with a build quality in line with the RF-7 iii.
  2. Not a good weekend for hero captains, I guess: https://abcnews.go.com/US/man-dressed-captain-jack-sparrow-missing-setting-off/story?id=65641503&cid=clicksource_4380645_null_twopack_hed
  3. Those are beauties!

    Definitely not posting these pictures on Tinder. 😆

    The Cola Wars

    I mostly gave up on soda about 10 years ago. I say mostly as I will have a soda about 1 - 2 times a month, if the mood strikes me. I now just drink coffee, tons of water and a nice IPA or 5, every now and then.
  8. I just sold a pair of ML Clarity’s a few weeks ago. They are great sounding speakers and it sounds like you have your gear and room dialed in!

    Grabbed a couple new pieces for my cabinet! Any Code 3 fans out there? I know Code 3 no longer has Star Wars rights but that is a real shame, these things are beautiful! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Congratulations! This was one of the best upgrades I have done, in my modest setup. The picture is amazing. Since calibration was mentioned, are you peeps having your sets professionally calibrated? I likely won’t have this done, until the TV has a permanent home, as I have heard TV’s should be calibrated to the room.
  11. I am very sorry for your loss.

    What I Got Today!

    Added another piece to my display cabinet, AKA, the reason my fun-account keeps getting depleted, cabinet. Can’t complain too much, I am loving the hunt! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Some people just enjoy the hunt, as much as the trophy. I went in just to look but the deal was just too good to pass on. I prefer the trophy over the hunt so I am very pleased with the purchase. With all of that said, I should have made the OLED leap earlier! The picture quality is astonishing. With that said, I changed the way I have everything hooked up. I am now running an optical cable from the TV to my Denon X3400 since the receiver doesn’t support Dolby Vision and I am just plugging my Xbox and cable box directly into the TV. I know I am losing out on a ton of the newest audio formats but I didn’t want anything degrading the picture quality. Plus, I am just down to a 2.2 channel setup at the moment so I doubt I am missing much. Would you guys make any changes with the way I have everything connected?

    Picked this up, to test out my new OLED TV, that I just brought home. This should put it through the visual paces: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Well, I pulled into a local store called Video Only and they made me a deal I couldn’t pass on. Ended up picking up a new in box, LG 65” C9 OLED TV for $2,500 out the door with a 5 year in-house warranty. I went to Best Buy, which is where I buy most of my electronics and they had a sale that would have been $3,700 out the door, with a 5 year in-house warranty. I was thinking of the 65” Sony Master Series A9 but it lacked HDMI 2.1 and was going to be about $4,400 out the door. I tested them side by side and I actually preferred the black performance of the LG C9, over the Sony A9. With that said, I would have likely gone with the Sony if there were anywhere near the same price but I definitely didn’t see a $1,900 difference. Going through the setup now..

    Got a new amp for my office Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. That is a beastly amp! I had the 3 channel and still have a scar from when I lifted it into my rack, a few years ago. That is a Mark Levinson design. I say run and grab that SVS before it’s sold. Do a subwoofer crawl (YouTube it) and A/B test them. I would imagine the SVS will extend a little lower and have more output. The only issue I see is the age of the SVS, mainly worried about the amp. Subwoofer amplifiers are a little more prone to failure, for some reason. At $150, you can easily sell it, if the Klipsch ends up being your preference. I have owned 3 SVS cylinder subwoofers and they are solid performers, especially at that price!
  19. I got a Lenovo Yoga a few months ago and I love it. One piece of advice, take it to a Microsoft store and have them strip out all the unnecessary programs. I did this the day so got it and it still runs better than new: It’s the Editor’s choice, in this article: https://www.pcmag.com/roundup/330389/the-best-lenovo-laptops
  20. I usually keep a TV about 2 - 3 years, which should also be factored. I’d love to see the Sony drop to the $3k range. I am thinking it might be best to wait another 5 months, to take advantage of the deals. The Samsung I am using, is no slouch but doesn’t look anything like the OLEDs I have seen in the stores👀
  21. They had it at the Magnolia, in the Best Buy close to me. I was looking at the UB-9000 but at double the price, I am not sure it’s worth it.
  22. I have been contemplating a TV upgrade of my Samsung UN65JS8500FXZA 4k TV for a couple months now. I think I have finally convinced myself that these two models would be worth the significant investment. https://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-OLED65C9PUA-oled-4k-tv https://www.sony.com/electronics/televisions/xbr-a9g-series?showModelPrices=true The Sony looked the best but it’s really close, so close that I might be trying to just talk myself into the Sony. I went to Best Buy today and I spoke to two different guys in Magnolia, who sounded very knowledgeable, and both said Sony was the way to go. They said that the panels are both made by LG but it was all about the amazing processing that the Sony offers. They both brought up a new Netflix feature where the Sony will know the ideal 4k calibration for all sources and auto adjust the panel, for ideal picture. Now the question becomes, is the Sony worth the $1,000 premium over the LG? With the $1,000 savings, I could buy the Panasonic DP-UB820 that I have been eyeballing and still lace $550 in my pocket. I am in no rush and can wait a few months, for a big enough sale. When is the best time to buy a TV, besides the holidays? Decisions, decisions.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
