  1. Thanks Moray, I look forward to getting my hands on them this summer. Now I need to decide on some drivers and bass bins
  2. looks like I picked a bad time to be out of town .
  3. Upper Peninsula. You mentioned finding something in Michigan but west of Lake Michigan, so the UP came to mind.
  4. Hoping to find something on the UP?
  5. I'm pretty sure he owes me a favor or two, so I don't think he'd have a problem picking them up. He lives in Langdon and works in Calgary, not sure which one might be closer to you. If the UPS thing falls through for the other guy let me know, thanks.
  6. I'd be interested in these. My brother-in-law lives in Calgary, he could probably pick them up if I bribe him. I see him in Winnipeg about once a year so I'd be able to transport them back home to Minnesota soon.
  7. I brine mine for about 24 hours. I just leave it in the garage since it's cold enough up here in the frozen north...stays at around 36-40 inside the bucket. Good thing I didn't have to brine it a few days ago when it was 3 degrees outside.
  8. I've been using the AMNPS 5x8 for about 6 years now. Mostly used it for cold smoking home-cured bacon but I have also done a lot of cheese, which turns out great. As for my turkey, I used to smoke them but I was never happy with the flavor so about 8 years ago I began brining them for 24-48 hours, then leaving them in the fridge overnight to dry out on a platter. I rub fresh herbs and butter under the skin and cook it at 400F using this method, which only takes 2 hours or even less if it's smaller: https://lifehacker.com/5860136/this-is-how-you-should-cook-your-turkey-next-thursday-or-you-could-waste-hours-of-your-life Roast turkey for 45 minutes. Remove pan from oven; baste turkey with juices from pan. Using 2 large wads of paper towels, turn turkey wing side up. If liquid in pan has totally evaporated, add another 1/2 cup water. Return turkey to oven and roast for 15 minutes. Remove turkey from oven again, baste, and rotate so that other wing side is up; roast for another 15 minutes. Remove turkey from oven again, baste, and turn it breast side up; roast until breast registers 160 degrees and thighs register 175 degrees, 30 to 45 minutes.
  9. What he deems as realistic is up to him I guess. I don't think he has any regrets no matter what price he paid (and I don't know what he paid ) Not sure about the Lear jet part, but yes they do look fantastic and I am sure he is quite happy with them. No congrats to me, I just followed along while he decided to buy something he knew he would really enjoy. Unfortunately I am thousands of miles away so I will never get to hear them. They are beautiful indeed. I'd love something like this in my own basement/listening room but I don't have 2 proper corners to manage it.
  10. He's already running them on some tubes...not sure which ones though.
  11. Mutual friend of mine in Phoenix bought these last week.
  12. Agreed, looks like BR to me. Also looks like a (well done) veneer/refinish as well.

    Cornscalas $650

    see, that's exactly what I was thinking

    Cornscalas $650

    And then on to someone in WI, and eventually on to me

    Cornscalas $650

    I'm pretty glad these aren't closer. I've been thinking about selling my Chorus and trying out a pair of Cornscalas.
  16. Looks pretty decent, especially for the price: https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/wsh/ele/d/klipsch-kg4s/6746195066.html
  17. no idea, sorry. there's a good review here that outlines some of the components used: https://www.headfonia.com/review-klipsch-heritage/
  18. Bump...am I asking too much? Would like to sell this soon to help fund my HT build
  19. Looks like a parallel port to me
  20. Wow, had to look up Fosston...that's pretty far up there. is it finally deer season? I've been hearing gunshots every weekend morning for nearly 2 months now but I know it wasn't deer season yet, so I was a little confused as to what they were hunting in my area.
  21. Aren't you out west near me? I thought the seller was in Ramsey.
  22. I'd be interested in the integrated amp. They look like heavy little beasts though, so I imagine shipping could be costly. Do you have the original box by any chance?
  23. Glad to hear that...what headphones and sources are you using? I'm tempted to unwrap it and listen for a week or two, even though that probably would diminish the value. It really is...I'd love to try it out but I just don't use my headphones that much anymore.
  24. Indeed, great phone. I used mine for 2 years, then dropped it once and the SIM cards no longer read. My kids use it now for wifi calling, gave them a phone number on Skype and it still works well otherwise. Moved on to a Pixel XL about a year ago and it's even better than the 6P. Running on Google Fi for the last 2.5 years, no complaints there.
