    I've seen many speakers destroyed during shipping.  Unfortunately, it's not uncommon.

    This ^^^^^. My first pair of 75’s arrived with the HF driver rattling around in the cabinet. Snapped clean off the plastic horn. The plastic horn/flange is no match for the HF 1.75 inch near Pro driver. Visually the box/package looked fine but it must have sustained a good enough drop to break the driver free. My current pair was a hand-off — 🤲

    +1 on both. I know a few members' B75 didn't survive shipping. I have bought a few pair of RB35 and a pair of RB75 and I made sure that I picked them up in person.

    730s are not all that unusual, but getting a bit more scarce.  Holding out for a 730 or a 930 would be the way to go...., IMO.

    I would like to AB the one I have (stock, tired, needing refreshed) to the one you bought back from Jason. Do you have it playing?

    Unfortunately, on a 730 or a 930 by utilizing the pre-outs, you are actually not using the best part of the HK. The amplifier section is what really shines not necessarily the preamplifier.  The pre-amplifier is fine, not great but not bad, but the amplifier section is what makes these units really stand out for their channel separation and clarity.

    I didn't know that. I'll have to try something different.


    So, what you're saying is that dwillie might be as well off to grab a 430 and enjoy it until a 730 follows him home?

    Right now I am using La Scala's and/or Quartets in my listening room.

    I asked because some speakers are more power hungry, such as the Legend and Epic series. Your LaScala will be a great match. After several people on here telling me that I need to try one, I scored a 730 on an auction site. It's been played on Khorns, Heresy, a couple of RB series and is now making the Belles sing. Like you, I want to capitalize on the pre outs and have a Dynaco 70 that I want to use with the HK. 


    Another one you might look for and like is a Tandberg. The 2075 and 2080 have pre outs..



    Good luck on your search

    It is cruel.

    But you have to remember it's all relative to what you grew up with as normal practices. Things are different all over the world, people from some places would be shocked we eat cows they worship them, other places shocked that we eat pigs. There are many instances between cultures. 



    To me, it's not so much what someone is eating, it's how it is killed. Regardless if it is used to moo, bark or speak English, kill it quickly lol.  


    I am glad that I'm not a praying mantis.

    Yes, very cruel. Probably out in one of the rural provinces. If most of Americans actually saw the meat they love being processed, they would become vegetarians.

    You might be right.


    This has been a great joke thread and I will leave this subject alone in this thread.

    intentionally let out of China. Probably as an elaborate scheme to take back Taiwan.

    And Gates wanting to micro-chip the world.

    Ever been there?

    I have not, but someone sent me a video of them cooking dogs while the dogs were still alive with the legs and paws bound. One of the cruelest things to see, let alone do.

    Fauci is back tracking some on the lock down.  Interesting.  Saying there will be irreparable damage.  

    Said keep an eye on him.  Wonder why the change.....  Be cautious of course.



    Didn't sound like he was for any type of coming out until now.

    I called him a liar a few pages back, but that fell under the mod editing knife. He, Fauci, like many others, has no answer for what to do, including the... well, you know who. I have advocated wearing a mask, stay at home, flatten the curve and all the while wondering if it is not what it was as presented. Fauci came out saying there is no need to wear a mask, but it was an airborne pathogen... then we all need to wear a mask. Then we have the spikes 5 minutes after 're-opening' and other sloped information, such as 'needed' ships floated into areas to help.

    My ex brother-in-law was cutting 1/2" steel plate with a torch, when a remnant fell into his jeans. His scar is about two feet long. His co workers said that he was the best dancer in the company.


    I have one torch tip that is made to cut 12" thick. The thickest I have cut was 8". It is pretty loud and with lots of molten metal spray.

    Got to thinking about the discomforts of some PPE. Spent a lot of years in the oilfield, none of which was more uncomfortable than the last year when fire retardant clothing was required on most west Texas rigs. Usually brand new, stiff, long sleeved and worn over most of your regular clothing. In the summer, I've worn these in 115 degree direct west Texas sun. How we stayed conscious is beyond me, but frequent breaks and lots of water were necessary. Worse, no whining or signs of discomfort allowed in the "he man" environment. 


    I am happy that the welding PPE that I have is open back, so it really does help. Someone told me that he had a job welding on the inside of a water tower tank. His welding PPE was open back...and he wasn't counting on the mirror effect of welding on the inside of a sphere.

    Do welders have to wear clothing that have a certain level of SPF in addition to some flame protection? One I have see have gloves that go up to elbows or beyond but not much beyond that.

    It seems that it is time dependent, just like exposure to the Sun. To spot weld something together, no worries. More than a few minutes, a welder's jacket protects well enough. I don't really like to weld, but I have, for miles, literally. I have had to do jobs where I welded for a few days and I protect myself from top to bottom with a large fan to my back for cooling me and blowing the smoke away. If light can get it (V neck shirt, thin pants, etc) that person will regret it. Unlike a Sun burn, a weld burn doesn't drift into a tan.
