  1. HiFI i dont think there just near field monitors. some thought just like in Munich at RMAF they were the best speakers in the show all subjective of course, I think Serious Stereo made them. My *gs would scare people when soffit mounted. I liked bass reflex better for most music. I like separation and detail but soffit mounted can be just insane.
  2. HiFi you should talk about the installation at the Walker Art Center..... My high school had an awesome Planetarium with fully reclining seats they had about 20 604s in it. Kids would travel hundreds of miles to see shows in it all the time. It was so silent when a show wasnt on it was weird. Found away to deal with the quiet, get a lass in there. Darkest place i think ive ever been.
  3. I Had the G models for years with good recordings they are eerie. Imaging is insane. Had 2 sets of Cornwalls older models, and the Altecs were much more refined to my ear. you will hear much more of the recording. I have a brand new pair of Hs that are vintage never hooked them up because i have Jub types now. Look up Jean Hiraga speakers High end show in Munich some of the reviews are interesting. They do need a very good subwoofer . If they are good enough in the past for B Striesand, Frank Sinatra Sony execs Les Paul and you can go on and on. Incredible speakers like one gent said on the JBL board its like owning a Ferrari..... They are fun!!!

    Any Knife guys?

    I have had some fancy knives, German, Japanese...... nothing like a Chinese vegie Knife...... You can lop through a beef shin and still finely cut vegies and scoop them up easily.... sharpen 3 times a year. I do cook a lot though
  5. Look into Starkey in Minnesota. used to take my Dad there. Couldnt get over the wall of pictures of musicians, Presidents, actors, spacemen. the best were the limos in the parking lot......
  6. If you are close go buy these spend some time these are a steal.... they will image like crazy, clear as a bell and will smoke most of things you have ever heard.... it will cost some time make sure the altec drivers match..... These may be the best speakers ive ever heard..... My jubs are different but this is a listening preference...
  7. Mogami... welcome back Carter.....Glad you passed the bar!!!
  8. Ive had a hand full of them they rocked
  9. Lots of Turmeric.... 2000 plus studies done.......
  10. Audis are amazing safe vehicles. Ive had a few i like the 4.2 engine. almost 10 quarts of oil in them. Wife has crashed 2 of them one her fault the other was a F250 van loaded with gear, hit her and my son on the side they were sitting on and walked away. .She was sitting still and he was going about 40 and t boned my wives car. At 150 MPH they are grounded and feel safe. Dont care for the new a8s they are to big the A6 with a big engine is a solid car. go on youtube theres a video of an A8 going up a hill in the snow. its funny to see all the trucks and suvs spun out and it just has no problem handling the terrain....weaving around them as they sit stuck.
  11. I hate to say this, but I bought a pair of series VI at a junk store for 29.00$. got off a plane stopped at the store placed them in the back seat. My wife made a quick stop and what i think they call a tulip stand tried to brain me. it was a small wound. The good news is that my young son now plays piano like a freak. They were his speakers when he could just sit up, and i would play classical music for him with books strewn on his floor. He taught himself and his fingers move so fast its uncanny. Something I always wanted to do but never had the time.... They are not my Altecs or Jubs but they gave my son and my family a gift!
  12. F1 and Nascar should never be in the same sentence....Moto GP can be insane Rally racing can rival it almost.... I dont know of anything that rivals the Isle....
  13. Just a few examples.... Nasty snow crab 36$s a LB, used cars are about 20 percent higher than models that sold 3 years ago for less. plywood for 40$ a sheet, yet the local store has so much of it it crazy. Bought a simple bowl of Thai soup and 2 egg rolls today 28$ Indian for 3 65$. What happened to supply and demand! or is this just their pound of flesh after covid
  14. Artto I still do! LOVE IT!!! I use a Yamaha T-85 it has outdone many about ten tuners including the modern Sony XDHR i think it was? that was an unpleasant tuner but as we all know synergy wins the day....
  15. I used to play softball with the Buffalo Philharmonic, I guess I was their ringer. I was lucky enough to get tickets every weekend and could sit wherever I wanted. Kleinhans music hall has great acoustics. Always sat dead center about 15 rows from the stage. Just an amazing experience. Funny tale, threw a riser from third hit the first basemen on the forehead. He sat down it sounded like I hit a pumpkin. Great place to listen to music and there are some good recordings from this venue. Its just a huge horn....
  16. Very nice Bob Crites Jubilee bass bin crossovers. Passive 225 shipped. Thanks!
  17. Here is a simple dish i made for my Family last night. Unconventional Fish and Chips! Haddock with a a cup of rice flour a half cup of corn starch a half cup of flour, 1 tablespoon of salt 3 tsp of black pepper, tbls of Paprika, two tsp of chile powder. one dark beer a little bit of 100 proof Vodka make a batter and let it sit, add cold water if its its too thick or more beer or Vodka. Dry off the fish and dredge in flour then into the batter . fried sliced chips with what I call "Canadian Ketchup" in Canada they often offer vinegar with their ketchup and French fries so i just mix the two. Tarter sauce with lemon, mayo, minced sweet Gerkins Capers and a few red pepper flake and a little sugar to taste. Crunchy fish with great flavors!
  18. As a child my Mother cooked almost everything from scratch and was a good cook. We had a good size Library in our house and some days when I didnt have learning or sports to do and it was raining i would flip through some of her three hundred or more cook books. I was a veggie for almost two decades so i needed too really master cooking. Share some of your favorite foods or recipes please!
  19. Islander and Randy these may all be truths......I found a burn pit under about 10 inches of leaves ,and dirt with very old glass bottles. I think its from the loggers or rail builders that came here. our local University has asked many times to dig in our area, and mounds. I cant imagine this place with Natives and 125 feet white pine trees that built much of the West.....
  20. Randy if you look up Soo Line high bridge, or Arcola Trail high bridge, or CN high bridge you will find some pictures of its scale. Its kind of a weird area but its nice. We have Native American burial mounds all over the place. My sister may have one of the rarest in the state. Most are irregular in shape and not very big. Hers is a almost perfect circular mound 100 feet across and 15 feet high. Its said that these mounds are around 6500 yrs old.
  21. Per Wiki its a 184 feet tall by 2682 feet in length with just five arches. Its just a one track bridge, and when i kayak underneath it iam amazed. Kids either for their own reasons or for stupidity jump off of it..... the river is very shallow in this area....The outcome isnt good. When i see the cars under the humble beginnings on my street, a dirt road and heavy wood very old pilings covered in creasote .... its very sad....
  22. what does this have to do with BGs?I saw it before and will see it again just perhaps not with a small Jet! Bi planes are more fun to watch!
  23. Dont know how fast it was going, i was just in awe! If you look up the bridge and see the arches you can see how big they are. People have fallen off this bridge and found their demise.....
  24. This is very sad news. Although I didnt know him, he seamed like a kind and gentle soul.. I hope his family moves forward and embraces all that they loved about him!
