    World Series?

    No one else watching this? Five games each won by visiting team.
  2. Probably requires a catheter. Ouch!
  3. So, meet in the middle maybe? The road trip would be a great story to be forever associated with the graduation gift. Michael Colter @colterphoto1 and I once met at a truck stop in Fort Wayne to do a speaker deal.
  4. It just occurred to me that Carl @CECAA850 and others might not recall that a “basement” is an area beneath a house that usually contains the hot water tank, furnace (a device used to heat northern homes) and stuff you haven’t touched for years but can’t bring yourself to toss out.
  5. As the caffeine was kicking in it took me awhile to figure out what you were saying about the black mark. I misunderstood and thought you were confessing to actually getting black paint on one of the speakers. After the caffeine was downloaded I realized you were referring to the Paint program and a computer generated black mark. They look amazing. Be patient. The right buyer is out there. BTW, you might want to change the third “speaker” to “photo” to make it more clear to others as dense as I am that the black mark is not paint on the speaker.

    Value?

    I would not post my phone number, but would invite private messages (PMs) exchanges where the phone number could be made available.
  7. You’re not losing your mind, but you could loosen your grip on, and lose, that extra “O.” 😉 I was at a neighbor’s outdoor party and had the same reaction to a large Sonos speaker, but then again, alcohol was involved. Alcohol causes one to lose inhibitions and loosen up. On the one hand, Sonos speakers, IMO, do an excellent job of filling spaces with music that sounds good as you walk around. On the other hand, my DIY system of Super Heresys and 4 tapped horn subs does an excellent job of producing focused full impact music fidelity if you sit in the sweet spot. Most of my friends and family aren’t interested in spending time in the sweet spot.
  8. I agree. My crystal ball is being re-capped, otherwise pics wouldn’t be needed. 😉
  9. It owes you nothing after nearly three decades. Replace it with a more efficient modern unit and forget about it. Or spend time and money to delay the inevitable failure, which could result in a flooded basement.
  10. Yes. A competent and thorough professional service would be $200 - $300. With the right technician, I woudn't hesitate to invest that much in such a unit.
  11. It’s done. It sounds and works great. One minor issue involves Bluetooth. The initial pairing takes many attempts. Once it connects, subsequent connections are immediate.
  12. I forget, did the seller represent that it has been professionally serviced recently? If not, I would suggest a thorough professional service irrespective of its present operation. If you spent as much again as the purchase price for a competent restoration, IMO, it would be money well spent.
  13. I have a pair boxed up and ready to ship. Where are you located? Send a PM and we can talk. They work fine. They were replaced in a pair of HIPs by a pair of Crites tweeters. One can be seen in the attached photo.
  14. With all due respect my friend you should care about beating a pathetic MSU, because it would be only the fourth time since 2008. To focus on beating OSU, which is extremely unlikely, and lose again to weak Sparty would be embarrassing. To beat Sparty this year should be easy, to lose again would be almost as bad as Appalachian State.
  15. Notre Dame is a fraud . . . again.
  16. Quitting is easy. I’ve done it thousands of times.
  17. PSU is easily winning the battle between the first two Land Grant colleges.
  18. Dave- Using a foam roller creates the texture. With practice, you can control the texture from almost none to aggressive. @mopar dave I like the texture, but the durability is what I like best.
  19. Chase Young is amazing.
  20. They're ready for Duratex, which covers a multitude of sins. Unfortunately, Duratex recommends 65 degres, or higher, for application. It won't get that hight today, and may not do so until next spring, so painting will be done indoors.
  21. It was a different time when a bowl full of packs of cigarettes was essential to a good host to offer guests their brand.
  22. The only downloads I ever purchased from HDTT are the two Klipsch Tape reissues, which are excellent. Here’s your chance to get them on sale. https://www.highdeftapetransfers.com/ I’ll scan their catalog and probably get a couple downloads on sale as a Halloween treat. Probably one Jazz and one classical.
  23. I know what you mean by Baker Street, another excellent song that was overplayed.
