    70th Anniversary Khorns for sale

    I apologise to you sir. I was just commenting on the others comments on why an item as flawless as yours was still on the market 3 months later. They were the ones insinuating but didn't have the cajones. I've dealt with so many people both on Craig's list, and eBay that didn't offer what they were representing. I wasn't saying your sale of speakers wasn't anything but a good deal. I'm new to this forum, but have been a regular contributor on 3 others. I didnt mean any disrespectful comments to you sir, I was just springing off the others. I don't pull punches with anyone, I'm a straight shooter myself as I stated. Some don't like that, but to me that's their loss. Ive been an audiophile for over 45 years, enjoy the hobby.I was always taught to be honest, say the truth. Again I'm sorry if I overstepped the line. Sent from my N9131 using Tapatalk

    FS - Capacitors - All new, never installed

    You guys need a hobby! If capacitors are the excitement of your day, you need a new solder iron. One to solder those pretty purple caps. What did Plymouth call that color in the early 70's? Plum crazy! That pretty much says it all about most of us. Sent from my N9131 using Tapatalk

    Synthetic Motor Oil.....

    Royal purple is indeed the king of oils. It's definitely the slipperiest of oils, little pricey for some, but anything great in life don't come cheap. Like all top synthetic oil, litteraly no engine wear. That's what we strive for. Sent from my N9131 using Tapatalk

    What do you guy's think of this upgrade path?

    I couldn't have said it better. Like driving a 740 horsepower hellcat Dodge, excess is just right. I'm almost 64 myself, and love to have my heart jump either with my speakers or car/motorcycle. No your on the right track, don't stop till it scares you, then you got it. Definitely calm the room down though. Klipsch are live and loud. Putting traps in the right place makes it all come together. You might want to have someone come by with microphones or do it yourself for optimum sound. A little tweaking goes a long way.

    70th Anniversary Khorns for sale

    Like what to make them a 4k bump? If that was the fact, these would have been gone the first week! I don't know about you guys, but I look for best bang for the buck. Either that or this guys not a straight shooter! Am I stepping out of line here? I've bought and sold a ton over the years, and I've called and stopped wrongful posts. I'm honest, and expect others to be as well! I don't want to buy these, I'm just participating in this post for others. Everybody seems to be pussyfooting here. Sent from my N9131 using Tapatalk

    WTB-McIntosh ML 1C speakers

    Luddite theirs 2 sets on eBay now. First set looks best, Indiana pickup only. Second set needs all 4 cones redone, but they ship. Take a look, Moose. Their both in $400.00 range Sent from my N9131 using Tapatalk

    70th Anniversary Khorns for sale

    First off as all of you know, their $12,000 new retail, not $16,000. Second, shipping them from Oklahoma can cost a bit, and be risky, even with best of shipper's. $2500 Off is good, but obviously not enough for anybody to pull the trigger. Time will tell. Sent from my N9131 using Tapatalk

    R115 too big for the room?

    I just reread your last post. 10 or 12ft high on the mains? What are you a 7'8" tall basketball player that stands up listening to your stereo? Me I lay back in my recliner, and have my 30 inch high Sansui speakers on 10 inch stands. Puts the tweeter right at ear level, at least for my 6'2" frame. Sent from my N9131 using Tapatalk

    Years back heard an M&K satellite/sub setup. Pretty sweet 3 piece set. Sub placement can be easy or tough. Usually I've found facing 90 degrees opposite of main fronts about 3 feet from side wall works for me. Your mileage may vary. Sent from my N9131 using Tapatalk

    Synthetic Motor Oil.....

    When your six, you can poop out a steady diet of Doritos, Pizza, and 2 candy bars a day. Try doing that at 64! Just about all manufactures recommend Dino oil for break in, about 7,500 miles or so for the rings/cylinder wall cohesiveness. Porsche is one of the few I think that says to use from day 1. Maybe they use a different cylinder material. I remember years back seeing that Mobil 1 sticker on an almost new late 1980's Porsche. They might use Nikasil, or something other than cast iron. Anyone here a Porsche tech that can confirm/deny why? Sent from my N9131 using Tapatalk

    Ever try to find an audiophile girlfriend/wife? Their far and few. A large sub with large power set low to blend in is a very good thing. I had a friend years back that used a 600 watt sub to blend in with his B&W 802's. Heard a live Roy Orbison DVD on it, pretty amazing sound. You'd swear all the sound was coming out of his 802's. I've always been a subwoofer fan. Just need to find the sweet spot in your room to put it. Preferably where the Mrs doesn't see it! Sent from my N9131 using Tapatalk

    Synthetic Motor Oil.....

    This is amazing, 135 posts on synthetic oil. Ironically on a Stereo website. We had the same conversation on my Ford expedition site, and even after 2 weeks, we only got like 60 responses. What kills me is 80 percent of humans take a shower or bath everyday, but get them to change their oil when they should, is the toughest thing. Like trying to get your 6 year old boy to take a bath. Folks it's not that hard. Regular clean oil and filter = longer engine life. Been proven for over 100 years! Sent from my N9131 using Tapatalk

    Power outage, now slight hiss/buzzing!

    Let us know what fixes your buzz. I'm sure others will experience same problem soon. Sent from my N9131 using Tapatalk

    Power outage, now slight hiss/buzzing!

    Try plugging in temporarily into another outlet, see if anything changes. Like Khorn said it could be dirty power from outside. Or maybe your wall plug took a jolt, and may have to be replaced. Do you have a plug in receptacle diagnostic tool. The one I have is yellow, and has 3 lights on end to diagnose wall socket wiring. You can pick one up at any electrical or hardware store.

    Synthetic Motor Oil.....

    Like that line in Indiana Jones, somethings in life are a leap of faith. Churches make millions, and billions on that premise. How many of you have actually met God? I don't know which one of you guys said it, but changing the oil whatever one you use, Dino, semi synthetic, Diesel oil, whatever, keeping it clean and fresh is everything. On the 2005-2014 Ford Expeditions, especially the 05-07 models, they have oiling problems involving cam phasers, and weak oem oil pumps. What forum members encounter, is the small passages on the advance/retard phasers get plugged and stop working. The motors start sounding like a Diesel, and eventually have to be torn apart. Some as soon as 80k. The owners that keep their oil clean, no more than 5k oil changes, usually don't have the problem at all. My 2000 Expedition with Mobil 1gets a change at 5k. Before using synthetic oil, I used to change at 3k. But what do I know. Sent from my N9131 using Tapatalk
