  1. Drum roll.......I went to the pub last night and saw a fat chick dancing on a table.  I said, "Nice legs."
    The girl giggled and said with a smile, "Do you really think so?"
    I said, "Definitely!  Most tables would have collapsed by now."Image result for laughing smiley gif

  2. Here is on I ran across:


    "My girl, Ginger, is going to die of syphilis," mumbles an angry
    biker to one of his buddies. 
    "No," says the friend, "people don't die of syphilis anymore." 
    The angry biker replies, "They do when they give it to me!"

    Funny hobby we have. Postman (lady actually), er mail carrier just had me sign for two Ken-Rad 6SN7 tubes. Made in USA, but they came by way of Holland. Wonder what the carbon footprint of my tubes are? :emotion-22:

    Good move!

    Some folks should be careful running sine waves: it is way to much for many subs the lower the frequency and does not represent anything in 99% of movies or music.  Here is a test for you subwoofer:  Search bass test 5-100 Hz.  The site is not allowing me to copy and paste the address.  Download the first video and play on your system with caution.






  5. The mention receivers are all good.  Can't say one brand is better than the others.  Research the feature that you want.  Some of the receivers have discrete amps.  This is different than some cheaper receivers.  A 125 watt receiver with all channels driven may  outputting 35-40 watts per channel.  With a discrete 125 amps in the receiver it will be closer to the 125 watts.The Pioneer room correction is also very good.  There receivers allow a lot of tweaking post calibration which allows you to adjust to taste.


  6. Bi-wire and Bi-amping are different.  Use the proper gauge wire for the speaker and there is no need to Bi-wire.  Bi-amping is using a seperate amp for the HF and LF driver.  Many of us have tried passive bi-amping and the result was nil.  Anything that can't be solidly proven after all the year by the majority of experts and people is of little benefit.  Spend the money on room Tx's.

  7. The older preamps don't have bass management.  A good stand alone parametric EQ will give you the ability for some bass management.  But, before venturing into this, be ready to take some room measurements with Omni mic or REW.

  8. I would stick with Reference speakers looking at the width of your room..  I would also try to get a sub in the rear of the room.  Nothing wrong with getting an RC 64 III, II or I.  They all all excellent center speakers.  An older series my  save a few coins.

  9. That is a simplistic view.  Most of us are not using high level input just because most modern preamp/avr have a dedicated LFE/subwoofer channel and bass management.  What system do you have, what are the XO's, and is the system for music vs movies.
