  1. Thank God they haven’t put feet on Belles . . . yet.  

     

    They seem to do excellent work.  The market will decide whether to reward or punish their sense of aesthetics and asking prices.

    Say good buy to your discretionary audio spending for the next couple decades.

     

    Freudian slip Carl?  Even the joys of parenthood should not force @Westcoastdrums to say goodbye to a good buy.  I blame that damn autocorrect; may its inventor roast in piss.

  3. Keep in mind that great opportunities that are lost to one are enjoyed by another.  The Belles did not evaporate, they went to someone who will enjoy them for decades.  Even when great items quickly pass through hands only for profit, they ultimately end up with someone who values them and will enjoy them.

     

    They produce music after all, and music is message.  The media and the hardware are but a delivery system of the music.

  4. Sparty has a bye this week, but they managed to lose anyway.  Star linebacker Joe Bachie suspended after positive test for PED.  Detroit News columnist, Bob Wojnowskl, described MSU accurately, “ . . . it’s a bigger mess in East Lansing than a White Castle bathroom at 2 am.”  Wojo, a Wolverine, has got that right.

  5. What an improbable story.

     

    Nats started the season 19-31, had to win the wildcard game, repeatedly came from behind in games and in series to get to the World Series as the heavy underdog. Then, for the first time ever, home field advantage is replaced by visitor’s advantage.

     

    The Astros won in 2017, this incarnation of the Nats never, the DC team last won it all in 1924. They were due.


  6. Today is the final day of the 20% OFF Halloween sale.  I highly recommend the Reissues.

     

    As I type I’m enjoying Paul Desmond’s Take Ten.

     

    The customer service from HDTT is top notch.  I accidentally downloaded Desmond in the wrong format.  A few exchanged emails solved the issue so now I can play it on my Pono player.


  7. You’re right on pricing.  Many years ago I paid $400 for a pair that had hung in a bar in Ohio.  They cleaned up to be used in a high school band room.

     

    Age alone is not a problem with the drivers. You probably won’t need to do anything more than replace the gaskets in the squawkers and clean things up.

    Thanks all. I rather doubt anything will throw up a red flag in my background. It's only secret, and I had that in the Army.

    That reference to “legal weed” a few posts back may just have derailed your clearance.  If not, enjoy your stay in California and tell us about the Tesla.

    Houston is stranding too many base runners.   It's going to come back to bite them I fear.

  10. The reason why it hasn’t been done is physics.  The laws of physics demand a larger bass horn than even in a La Scala to get real low bass.  That said, the horn loaded bass produced by La Scalas goes to approximately 150Hz, below that it acts as a 15” direct radiator.  That’s why the djk bass reflex mod works as well as it does.

     

    I love the tight bass produced by La Scalas, with or without the bass reflex mod, and I understand why many use them very happily without a sub, or subs.  Scaling that down doesn’t work, at least it’s not worth the effort.  The complexity of a mini-La Scala will not result in a usable functional mini-bass horn.  You can’t make mini-bass waves.  At those sizes, the simplicity of a direct radiator or bass reflex box makes more sense.

     

    IMO, fully horn-loaded is better, but the laws of physics demand bigger horns, not scaled down horns.
