    Memphis TN Impressions

    Memphis is a looooong way from Alaska. The USPS abbreviation for Arkansas is AR. Alaska = AK Arizona = AZ Arkansas = AR It's a common mistake. Back on topic.... The dry rub ribs at The Rendevous are delicious! Some incredible music has been made in Memphis; it's the home to Stax Records and Sun Studios. If you want to see some live music, head down to Beale St.

    Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    When @WillyBob is at your place, tell him to check his PMs. I sent him my phone number so he could call when he comes by here. But apparently he was already on the road when I sent the PM.
  4. Thanks! I have had the PL-115D since about 1979. I had an SX-650 back then.
  5. Currently: Pioneer SX-1250 receiver Pioneer PL-115D turntable Grado green cartridge LaScalas & Heresys It sounds really good, and it makes me smile when I listen to it. But, there's always something else to try. I'm currently thinking about trying an Ortofon red cartridge. And, maybe a higher end vintage turntable. The SX-1250 and the LaScalas are here to stay.

    Elevating KG4's

    No, I have not done anything to my KG4s. As far as I know, they are stock original. I bought them at a flea market and have never opened them up. They are currently used in a secondary system, and I like the way they sound as is.

    Elevating KG4's

    I have a pair of KG4s that are on stands in a carpeted room. The stands elevate them so that they are at ear level when seated. I am impressed with the KG4s sound. I haven't listened to them sitting directly on the floor, but I can't imagine getting more bass out of them than I do in their current position. I'm running a vintage Pioneer SX-850 with them.

    Look what the cat dragged in..

    I'm running my KG4s with a Pioneer SX-850. That combination sounds great!

    The Great L.E.D. conumdrum

    I have the same/similar light string on my deck. I don't have a dimmer on mine, just 11 watt incandescent bulbs in each socket. It provides a very pleasant glow that doesn't overwhelm the night.

    Scott Yocum, "PappyIII", is desceased.

    Very sad news. Like many of you, my wife and I met Scott at the Pilgrimage. We talked at length with him, and discovered we had some common acquaintances. He seemed to be a genuinely good person.

    Anyone selling an integrated amp?

    I think you might be surprised if you tried it. But it's above your stated budget of $200-$500.

    Anyone selling an integrated amp?

    I have a Pioneer SA-9500 integrated amp for sale. Fully restored by Paul Hovenga (Many Moons Audio) in January 2017. Specs here: https://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/pioneer/sa-9500.shtml
  14. I tried to convince my wife that the Cornwalls would make great rear speakers. She said we don't have the room.
  15. They will be in Hope, AR from Thursday until Sunday. That's only about 200 miles from Dallas.
