  1. March Madness NCAA basketball 2017-2018

    I don't think of blowouts when it comes to the Elite Eight but Loyola Chicago is annihilating Kansas State by 20 with ten minutes left.

    OK, super cute pic of the kid holding the kid. Someone with a camera captured a moment in time. That one needs to get printed, framed and hung on the wall in the living room.

    Well, rats. Nova ended the game the way they started, hitting threes all over the place. They won the game the way most champions do, at the end when the outcome is in doubt. Nova took over the last ten minutes of the game.

    So sorry for your loss, Thom. Your father will live on through his children.
  6. I'm not so sure, speaking of the sound, theoretically. I see a WTW arrangement with a couple of tweeters in the middle, and none of the drivers are close to each other. I just see lobing problems all over the place. With no replacement parts and 1980's tech (subs have come a long way) I would pass unless they were at a "I have $200 to throw away on an experiment" level.

    Well, my favorite is still in! West Virginia plays Villanova at 7:30 tonight (Friday). I just saw an interview quote from Mountaineer coach Bob Huggins. Apparently, he thinks his team will do better when they score. Wow! +++ The ESPN Matchup Predictor has Nova with a 78% chance of winning. I can tell you this, after banging around the highly competitive Big 12 all year and giving Virginia their first loss of the year, West Virginia will fear no one. http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/game?gameId=401025879
  8. Monoprice makes a banana plug with screw-on pin tips. It's very handy for older receivers and speakers that use those spring loaded female wire terminals.
  9. RF-83 and dual RSW-10D pairing?

    Those RSW-10d's have 500 watt plate amps. By using the subs the RF-83 does not have to use its woofer in the lowest register which is what uses most of the power. This leaves more power for more dynamics and better articulation in the mid-bass. You will find the speakers will appear to have more bass when used with the subs, you won't actually hear the subs themselves. A lot of people like the 10" size for music thinking it's "quicker" and not as boomy. I also have the RF-83's with an RC-64. You are right the RF-83's don't NEED a sub, but they benefit from a sub if that makes any sense. I was running a Klipsch 12" RW-12d sub in 3.1 until recently when I took the sub out of the rotation and sent it to my son, who blew up the last Dayton Audio 10" sub I sent him. The 3.0 setup works fine for me for 95% TV watching.
  10. Heresy II pair, St. Louis, $550

  11. RF-83 and dual RSW-10D pairing?

    The quick answer is "yes" because every system, even for music, can benefit from a sub or two. +++ Do you have the subs or are you going to buy the subs? I have 10, 12 and 15" subs. My DIY sealed 15" works great with music.

    Those crossovers are not standard Klipsch, and they are a very nice upgrade. They were produced to replace the Type A factory crossovers. If you can, take a picture of the back where the mid-driver and tweeter are. I'd like to see what's in there. You will need a flash for the tweeter. http://www.alkeng.com/ap_xo.html Congratulations on the Khorns!

    Michigan already plays great D. If they can score 90 points a game nobody will be able to touch them. I'm watching Kansas State and Kentucky play, nearly halftime and K-state up by 5. Man, Kentucky is tall! I'd like to see K-State get to the Elite 8.
  14. Amps

    I picked up the XPA-5 from a nurse somewhere around Washington, DC. It was a XPA-5 Gen1. It was not a CL sale, some local ad site that someone alerted me to. @teaman is far better on Emotiva prices than I am, but I would budget around $600 for a used one. Tim, can you comment?
