  1. Same in my “Music Room”. I’ve got two Heresys in a similar position. I’ll agree it’s not optimal. But YPAO seems to be able sort it out without too much trouble. I don’t do a lot of HT there but the sound is quite good when I do.
  2. This is still available, in case there’s any interest.
  3. I must admit when I first swapped out the originally installed earpieces my first thought was, replacement pieces aren’t going to be easily available. It looks like I may have been correct.
  4. Post pictures of your project. Many years ago I had a similar project. As others have warned be careful if you sand them, as the veneer is quite thin. I managed to burn through a spot on the top of one of mine. If I had to do it again I’d first try a chemical strip (in a discrete spot) to see if it might work. After I managed to remove the three layers of paint, I stained and polyurethaned mine, I wish I’d just oiled them instead. Oh well, live & learn. Good luck. I hope you got a great “yard sale” deal. I’m never lucky enough to find those.
  5. Klipsch sells a replacement volume pod, for a reasonable price. I’d almost bet that would solve your problem.
  6. We just started that a couple of weeks ago! We are only on season Two. It’s the best show I’d never even heard of. The beauty of it was, that we’d just finished Deadwood, so there are all those, moments of recognition. Great TV.
  7. I can only say they were made in 1978. But if the rest of the speakers are in as nice a condition as the tags they are pristine. @HDBRbuilder built one of my pairs of Heresys.
  8. There is still a part of me that thinks(thought?) all the CBD hype is just snake oil. But the dog doesn’t know she’s on it. Even if the mental improvement are just imagined, the itching & rash are cured. And we’ve fought that for seven years.
  9. I know this sounds crazy. I don’t “believe” it myself. Yet here goes. Our dog has had some issues with itching. We had her on medicine that worked but was really bad as far as side effects. She was taken off it for other reasons. Long story short we put her on CBD Oil once the itching returned. Literally, she wascompletely cured in 72 hours. So we’ve kept her on it. Now the point. She’s always been a bit neurotic. However since she’s been on the CBD, it’s not only cured her itching, it’s helped her mentally. My wife and I at first we’re confused, she was acting like a “normal” dog and it didn’t make sense. Then we realized it’s been since she’s been on the oil. It might not help your cat soon enough, but it might be worth a try. I didn’t believe in it, but we were desperate to try something. Good luck with the cat. We just lost our 18 year old cat.
  10. It really is a good one. I think it’s underrated, or at least under recognized.
  11. No, just the amp at the moment. I’m east of Charleston. I’m envious of you Parkersburg folks, you can get Popeye’s Chicken whenever you want. I get up that way for work every so often. Nice area.
  12. This is not the prettiest amp Carver ever made, but it sounds really good.However, I’ve recently acquired a Sunfire, Cinema Grand and have taken this out of the system. I’ve even debated keeping it, maybe even finding another one and running them as mono blocks. But my wife is right, I’ve just got too much crap. So time to let it go. It’s THX Certified, putting out, I think, a couple of hundred watts/channel, five hundred or so in mono. This is the amp that made me a believer in external amplification. It completely filled in the bottom end of my La Scalas, they were good before, after using this amp, they became great. If I’d tried this before building a subwoofer, I doubt I’d have ever built one. Honestly, to my aging ears, it sounds very similar to the Cinema Grand, maybe not as quiet, but very similar. It does have its share of scratches & scuffs, but it wasn’t “pretty” when it was new. Asking $275.00 plus shipping from WV. I’ll try to work with ya on shipping costs as best I can. I’d say local pick up option, but likely few are close enough. If you are thinking about trying an external amp, and don’t want to break the bank this could be the ticket.
  13. That pic was taken during daylight, it is much brighter with the backlight than in the dark.
  14. We can still get them here in the US with no problem. But now that you mention it I suppose I need to stash some away too. I love led lights and have mostly switched to them. But the old school incandescents are the only thing that would work in a lava lamp.
  15. I just bought this one. I did the “custom” option. It’s certainly different. I’ve got to admit, I’m a little disappointed. I went with what I thought would be a cool color combo, metallic green, 17” lamp, with blue liquid, and purple wax. It does look good and certainly is different. However, I find I like the proportions of the 16” 52oz much better. Also the blue liquid /purple wax is quite dark and just doesn’t let the light shine through. I think it would be better with the 52 oz. model. Oh well, it’s far from the worst purchase I’ve ever made. I still want one of the Grande models.
