  1. Every team I was rooting for today lost. Pay me enough and I’ll root for the team opposing your favorite team.
  2. That’s funny, but maybe we should wait until the new guy buys donuts before we poke fun. 😉
  3. Welcome. More information would be helpful. In what way(s) are you unhappy with the sound? What are you using for a source and amplification? Are they wired in phase? Are all drivers working? If they were mine, I’d open the backs and confirm all connections at the crossover networks. Eventually you may want to update the capacitors in the networks. As to value, the range is so wide as to be of little use at this stage. Get them functioning and search eBay completed sales to begin to get an idea of the price range.
  4. I was wrong. Wolverines covered the spread x3. They are playing very well, Spartans are not. The Ohio State game should be interesting.
  5. Another game that has my interest this afternoon is the one in Iowa City, IA. The Hawkeyes are three point favorites against the undefeated Gophers.
  6. The weather in Southeast Michigan is clear and cold at 9:30 am. The hourly forecast for Ann Arbor predicts mostly cloudy and temps in the 20s at game time in the annual clash between Wolverines and Spartans. The weather in South Bend is predicted to be slightly warmer at game time in the Notre Dame vs Navy tilt. In either case, I’d want to watch from the warm comfort of home. For me, the game day atmosphere, although exciting, doesn’t offset the advantages of watching televised coverage you can record, pause and, reverse as needed.
  7. A win on the road against a top ranked team is always a good win. Good college friends invited us to join them 12/29/19 at Breslin Center for the Maryland game. That should be a good game.
  8. Tom, Sorry to hear about your trouble, but glad to hear you’re home and doing well. I agree with @JohnA above.
  9. Congratulations to #16 Buckeyes for defeating #10 Villanova yesterday. I hope the B1G’s luck continues as #3 MSU takes on #12 Seton Hall tonight in South Orange, NJ.
  10. Maynard- Thanks for sharing the interesting and informative article. Please describe one of your “desktop systems.” I constantly have to explain that the relationship of amp power to speaker size is counterintuitive. Present an audio layperson with a pair of Klipschorns and a pair of BBC ls3/5a monitors and ask which requires more power to play at a given volume. 11 out 10 will say the bigger speaker. When I explain the Klipschorns respect the laws of physics and are very efficient, but the ls3/5a monitors try to defy the laws of physics to get small drivers to produce big sound waves, they begin to understand. I have demonstrated the difference by producing glorious music from my efficient Klipsch speakers using only a tiny chip amp that cost less than lunch and fits in the palm of your hand. That same amp will produce sound from my BBC monitors but, by the time the electrons navigate the complex equalizing physics cheating crossovers, the sound emanating from the small KEF drivers can hardly be described as music. It takes 100 times the power to get “music” from the BBC monitors. Even then they lack the effortless dynamics and live sound of larger horn loaded efficient speakers.
  11. I saw the movie but must confess without your guidance I would not have recalled, “about 11” as a Monty Python line.
  12. Please share your comparison results with the other tweeters in the photo.
  13. I correctly predicted that MSU would not cover against Illinois. Hell, they not only failed to cover, they lost outright. They were awful. This week I predict that Michigan will not cover against MSU. They should win at home against a very down MSU team. If they win, it would be the fourth time in the last twelve games. The Wolverines would be wise to put the Buckeyes out of their thoughts and focus on getting past Sparty, for a change.
  14. Reminds me of of a woman I dated in college. One evening toward the end of our senior year she was filling out applications (remember the paper versions) for teaching positions. She asked me what they meant by, “How many books do you have in your professional library?” I explained that they want to know how many books she owns about education, specifically physical education, as that was her major. She replied, “none.” I said surely, you have some old textbooks, just write in a number. She put, “approximately eighteen.” I groaned, but did not correct her, after all, she was a phys-ed major. She got the job and married a guy she had gone with before he went to Vietnam. Apparently, I was merely filling a void.
  15. My first good speakers. I wish I still had them, even with the dent in one when it fell and hit Brad Van Pelt (RIP) in the head during a house party in East Lansing.
  16. They look good Justin. Would you consider editing your subject line? At first I thought this was a relationship thread about achieving “her” nirvana. Also, it took me a bit to realize you weren’t referring to speakers built by POTUS’s former attorney. How is the treble as you move about? Are they at all beamy? It’s been my experience that large surface area sources (can you say Magnepan?) tend to beam the highs. In any case, your workmanship is again excellent and, if you say they compare favorably to your Cornscalas, I’m impressed.
  17. I must’ve told you ciento cuarenta y siete times to learn to count en Espanol.
  18. I never heard that a Cobraflex horn was available from Klipsch. I hope @JRH can shed some light on this.
  19. My father was drafted out of Johns Hopkins and made into a 90 day wonder officer in Army Corps of Engineers. He served in France and the Philippines. After the war her returned to Hopkins and then married my mother who was a war widow with an infant daughter. At 24 he was married with an almost two-year-old daughter and had helped win the war. He and his brother and sister vets were forced to grow up fast. At 24, I was 24 going on 18. Thank you to all vets, to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice and to those who returned. We need to demonstrate our gratitude by doing more to heal those damaged by their service.
  20. I also agree that it appears to be a modified Khorn.
  21. It arrived and works flawlessly. Dire Straits now flows by Bluetooth from a Pono player to Dayton MKBoom.
