  1. It is deliberate as how many saved receipts once the warranty is up? Tax audits can go back three years if I remember right but taxation on your own items you are selling for less then you paid somehow have to now have records forever? It is nothing more then they need more of your money so they can spend three dollars for every new dollar they find.
  2. Ha Ha yes I get that one. In the past when one of ATT's never ending screw up sagas was ongoing I got on telephone support to try and solve the latest mess. The tech asked me what my password was and I said @TTSUCKS!. She busted out laughing and I just can't imagine why.
  3. No the big complaint is social credit scoring and policing of thoughts THEY don't like as self appointed moral authorities enforcing their desires in ways they think they can get away with.
  4. Yes and the first amendment means I don't have to agree to their policing of my thoughts because a few in authority there don't like them.They are finding out get woke go broke and had to back off. They offered me financial services not a moral authority to fine me for a comment on an unrelated web site and which had nothing to do with my sales transactions. The Chinese social score method of thought control is anathema to the Bill of Rights and the Constitution which I still happen to believe in.
  5. Yes and exactly why I am looking for other places to go.
  6. THAT is what makes me mad if anything. Sadly if I had a web site or store I would still have to collect sales tax and then have to manage the book keeping and reporting. The days of tax free internet sales are almost gone and soon with all this fiat induced inflation I figure all on line sales will be liable. Including private individuals who sell a lawn mower worth over $600 who will then need to file 1099's on their "extra" Craigslist or local newspaper for sale ads as income. The government needs your money more then ever now.
  7. I have heard this before but what is the cost of bricks and mortar? I can't have the market exposure I get through EBay in my own store and it is around a 15% overhead on EBay. Where else can I go to do things this cheap and sell as much? USPS has run up my costs more then EBay.
  8. That's a fact and for big items for my stuff it is still cash and carry and show up to get them.
  9. Precisely my position and complaint. What is this alternative?
  10. Yes that could be true but none of them could take money from you in penalties for wrong think according to what THEY think is wrong think. While PP has rescinded this at this time they apparently want to jump onto China's social credit score thing. Yes, EBay primarily. It is not so bad there as EBay changed things and now do a direct deposit and unless someone uses PP to buy there PP does not get a cut from my sales any more. It is looking more and more like PP will still be the best choice for sales and in most frequent use outside of credit cards.
  11. Venmo is owned by Paypal too so not sure they would be any better and I would like none of my money going to PP any more.
  12. I fell into using Paypal since it was tied to my EBay account years ago. Time passes and the desirability of Paypal has been sorely diminished. So, my question is what is the most popular alternative amongst my fellow Klipsch heads? Now that having been said I own nothing Apple nor want anything to do with them so Apple Pay is out. What are YOU using?
  13. These have been gone through as I normally do and sound just like they should. I use a set just like these only in Oak veneer for PC speakers in my house. Bone stock speakers with recapped crossovers using the OEM klipsch values. As good as when new. The smallest of the Klipsch Pro series speakers I know of they are very impressive for their size. $275.00+ shipping from 38472
  14. I have a pair of soldered lug drivers in excellent condition . $275.00 + shipping from 38472
  15. Well I will call again. A couple of months ago I was told they did not handle it.
  16. To the garbage man or to the potential recipient?
  17. Thanks for the tip and I will be looking into that.
  18. I have 12- 2uf old oil cans if someone wants them pulled from Type E crossovers and look real purdy. Pay for shipping and they are yours. NO there will be no picture as you all know what they are. They will hit the garbage can next week.
  19. OK you make a good point. Just as easy to not reply when I read something I think is silly.
  20. EBay is the only hope. It might take a year or two of weekly checking but almost everything is there sooner or later. Other then that you can buy the DATS 3 tester from Parts Express and see what the parameters are for one of your good woofers and begin the search for a close match. Yes it is a hassle but sometimes the only way
  21. Have you ever read about Coriolis force causing weather systems to swirl in opposite directions above and below the equator? I wonder if south of the equator there are no pops because the electrons are trying to go back up the wire?
  22. Not stuck but enlightened choice. Still not catching our drift?
  23. What are the diagnostic symptoms?
  24. Oh, of course I am serious. It is why I use only 12g Platinum wires because the density of the metal helps prevent excessive puddling.
  25. That makes sense. What helps me the most is to make sure there are no background noises like AC or heaters running in another room. Even a refrigerator or freezer humming away seems to be a problem since all my serious listening is done below 80db now. Entertaining listening just might get much louder..
