  1. Hope you enjoy your RR-2150 as much as I do mine. After just missing out on a couple of used one's (including this one) I ended up buying a new one. It's currently driving a pair of RF-82 II with a R-12SW filling out the bottom. Feeding the RR-2150 is a U-Turn Audio Orbit TT and an Oppo UDP-205. The system plays at least 4 hours (usually more) every day and I'm just purely digging it. Since that photo was taken I've installed a LG 55" 4K TV directly above the stereo and upgraded from a UDP-203 to a UDP 205. No updated photos but I can tell you that I'm still seriously impressed with the RR-2150
  2. PM sent and a Friday afternoon bump for you.
  3. Have you purchased any older movies that have been "remastered" to 4K? If so what was your experience with them? Is there a noticeable improvement over the BD version? I've been browsing Amazon's selection of 4K discs and I'm seeing a lot of my favorites that have been remastered to 4K. In particular movies along the line of: Men In Black, Ghostbusters, Independence Day, Labyrinth, the Bourne films, the Star Trek films, and the Star War films. The prices for the 4K versions range from reasonable to stupidly cheap. The reason for the questions is that in the I was an early Blu-ray adopter. As soon as Blade Runner was "remastered" to BD I paid an obscene amount of $$ to have one of the first copies. After all it IS probably my all time favorite move. To say that I was disappointed with the BD version would be and understatement. It was better than the DVD that I already had but only marginally so. I'm trying to not experience a repeat of that disappointment. If the 4K remasters of older movies aren't a significant improvement over the BD versions I'll just keep my $$ in the bank. The list of movies that I have bought more than once as formats advanced is VERY long. Any and all input is greatly appreciated.
  4. How far are you willing to drive? https://orlando.craigslist.org/msg/6101948278.html
  5. Drool!!! And less than 100 miles away too. I'm house shopping so I don't yet know whether or not the new digs will accommodate them. Were I staying where I am currently me and the Tacoma would be on the way.
  6. http://oppodigital.com/blu-ray-udp-205/blu-ray-udp-205-Features.aspx Placed my order a little while ago. According to their info I should take delivery in early May. Fingers crossed.
  7. One of these... https://www.amazon.com/Cambridge-Audio-DacMagic-100-Black/dp/B0078Q35PG Plus one of these... http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-dta-120-class-t-mini-amplifier-60-wpc--300-3800 Plus a pair of these... http://www.klipsch.com/products/reference-bookshelf-speakers#r-15m Will give you a PC based 2 channel audio system that will really surprise you for less than $600. Yea... Ask me how I know that.
  8. It was a good day today I received: 1) a Harmony 650 remote to clean up some of the remote clutter on my coffee table. Haven't programmed it yet. No picture. 2) a pair of Klipsch R-15M speakers for the bedroom PC sound system. Still in the box. Picture once I set them up and tidy up a bit. 3) The 4K UltraHD set of Planet Earth II. So far I've watched the first episode (of 6) and all I can say is WOW!!! If you have a 4K TV and a 4K DVD player the disk is a MUST HAVE. I have a fairly low end 55" LG TV and the picture quality simply blew me away.
  9. A new 55" LG 4K TV. Still waiting on the Cambridge Audio DACMagic 100 so I can listen to the TV through my stereo system.
  10. Added a few to the vinyl collection.
  11. The whole family...
  12. A shiny new Klipsch R-12SW to keep my recently acquired RF-82IIs company. No... I really didn't need another subwoofer. The copper just kind of sucked me in.
  13. In the "What I Got Today" thread I mentioned that today was going to be a day of music and self indulgence. It begins here:
  14. No. The turntable is a U-Turn Audio Orbit with an Ortofon 2M Blue cartridge mounted. As I understand it a small group of engineering students from a prestigious North East ivy league school decided that they could build a "high end" turntable at an affordable price. They did the whole "gofundme" thing and raised an ***-load of cash to get started. Don't matter to me. I have a really nice turntable at a price that fits well in to my budget.
