  1. Good stuff, good pricing. Even though it's easier to buy than sell I predict fairly quick sales. I have very few examples of Belle singles, I'm not sure how fast that will sell but your price is fair. Hopefully someone who buys those Khorns will grab that Belle as well. GLWYS
  2. I have a Marantz 6011 AVR in a 5.1 setup and from time-to-time I'll run All Speakers Stereo and sometimes Mono. The Mono sounds pretty good to my ears, surprisingly good. It sounds best in Mono when I am about the house and not sitting directly in front of the speakers. If you've tried it and don't like it, no problem. I think we all have our preferences for different listening situations, just find the one that sounds the best to Your ears, in Your home, with Your equipment.
  3. @teaman is the local Emotiva guru. It will be interesting to hear his take. @willland has good advice directly upstream ^^^. I have the XPA-5 gen 1. I added it to a 2014 model Onkyo 717 AVR, rated at 110 wpc (MUCH fewer watts in real life) which was showing its age trying to drive some not so efficient CF-4's and an MTM center. Since I only use 3 of the channels the XPA-5 makes 250 wpc available to the speakers. In my case the external power amp gave some more life to the Onk 717. FYI the XPA-5 is totally silent. I hate hiss and if there were some I'd tell you.
  4. You did an nice job, it looks good. I like the look of grills which cover the entire HF area, but that's personal preference.
  5. Sorry for your loss. At the age of 88 her passing was likely not a surprise, but it's always a shock.
  6. I think your offer of $1000 for the bundle is the MOST I would go. If one of the guys will take the LS valuing them at $1000 that is not bad, and the LS have some potential for a nice refurb job. Your 60/40 plan sounds very reasonable. If the amps are worth something that is where your money will be. Nobody buys cassette players or tuners any more.
  7. Great advice directly upstream ^^^ by everybody. I thought @willland was right on the money. I have never heard the basX line but I've read they sound really good. If the XPA costs too much in the Netherlands the Emotiva basX should be a solid choice. I have the XPA-5 gen1, 200 wpc into 5 channels. However I use only three of the channels for L/C/R which makes available 250 wpc. I use an Onkyo 717 as a pre-pro with the XPA-5.
  8. Too subtle! There is no "part 1." The first and only movie is History of the World Part 2.
  9. I prefer Godfather even though I've seen it a bunch of times. I use two computer screens and two TV's, watching Live PD and an NBA playoff game. The computer has Klipsch Forum, and then solitaire on the other screen. Which hockey game Jim? I saw my first professional hockey game earlier this year, Redwings at Columbus Blue Jackets. I went with a serious hockey guy who explained everything to me in real time. It's much better seeing it live than on TV. I really enjoyed the experience.
  10. With a "ridiculous" amount of air to move I would suggest large speakers. Start with the best center speaker you can afford, then build your system from the inside out. In terms of budget priorities for speakers: Center - RC-64 III Left/Right - RF-7 III Subs - Keep the SVS PB-13's Atmos - I don't know Atmos modules well enough to suggest a model Surrounds - (this is where the RP-600M might go) I own the RC-64 III and the RP-600M
  11. Congrats on the LS. Here's hoping you can get them where they need to go.
  12. I have that 15" HO driver. It's in a sealed 3.0 cuft flat pack from diysoundgroup.com (or Parts-express). It's my favorite sub, very musical with an Inuke 3000dsp. If you pick it and need an amp, give me a shout. I have a Yamaha or Inuke amp I can make you a deal on.
  13. I was wondering about that. The announcers kept referring to the "patrons" and I was wondering why that particular term. I figured it was a fancy golf term to describe fancy golf fans.
  14. ESPN reports a guy making his FIRST bet won 1.9 million. He bet $85,000 at 14-1 for Tiger to win! I think $3 is a big bet. I wonder if he told his wife he was betting the family's life savings on a golfer who hadn't won a big one in 11 years? http://www.espn.com/chalk/story/_/id/26524565/bettor-wins-119m-tiger-books-take-bath
  15. C'mon Bill, what's your story? Did you go with family, buddies? Where were you on the course, and what advice did you give Tiger when he picked you out of the crowd and asked you how to play the last nine?
