    Receiver running hot, how do you keep it cooler?

    I have a Marantz SR5012 that I felt was operating at elevated temperatures, even with my equipment cabinet door open and the back area opened also. If I remember correctly, it was operating around 110 degrees at max heat, but in my opinion, it still needed some cooling. Thanks to a forum member’s posting about the AC INFINITY in the “What I Got Today” forum, I purchased one and I’ve been completely satisfied with its performance! I went with the AC INFINITY AIRCOM T8 because it has rear exhaust and my equipment cabinet is open in the back. Now I can operate my 5.1.2 system with the equipment cabinet door closed and the AC INFINITY keeps the SR5012’s temperature between my 83-85 degrees setting; well worth the $109 that I paid. Here is a picture of the AC INFINITY AIRCOM T8 in my system.

    Does Anyone Here Collect Winchester Rifles ?

    Honestly, I didn't know he was 89; he's still trucking pretty good at that ripe old age!!!!!! We haven't been to Cody in a while, but we see him every year at the TGCA shows and Denver and I think he makes the CCA shows too! If he makes it to Waco in April, I'll have to give him an extra hard time! 😂

    Does Anyone Here Collect Winchester Rifles ?

    Cool, then I've known your Dad through Gun Shows for many years. He always stops by our table and talks to me and my wife (looks at my stuff, too 😂) and of course I always stop by his tables (plural)!!!!!!!! Too bad the Klipsch Pilgrimage is the same weekend as the Spring TGCA show. I guess you'll be going to Hope and he'll be going to Waco! 😂 If so, I'll see him there!

    I'm curious, so this is a SWAG; is your Dad's first name Bob and lives in Georgia?

    Does Anyone Here Collect Winchester Rifles ?

    That would be a nice Winchester for someone to own; not a Pre 64, but still a nice old Winchester! Hope you find it a great home!!!!!! I collected Pre WWII Winchesters (all models, primarily Saddle Ring Carbines) and Pre WWII Colt Single Action Army revolvers for 40 years. About 6 years ago I decided it was time to liquidate the collection, so my wife and I started getting a table at some of the Major Gun Shows every year and sold off the collection. However, I did keep a couple, just for old times sake! 😂

    Music Video for 2019

    At the moment it is "Drive" from "Live At Carnegie Hall, Joe Bonamassa, An Acoustic Evening". I like this version better than the Official Music Video!!!!! I really like this song, it has a haunting sound!!!!!

    What do You Listen to That's not Music?

    When not using our Home Theater or Stereo Systems, you can usually find me sitting in front of our old Zenith drinking a cup of Coffee and listening to “Inner Sanctum” or "The Lone Ranger" just waiting for Lawrence Welk to start.

    Favorite Christmas Tune

    The Little Drummer Boy by the Harry Simeone Chorale. When I hear this song for the first time in December, it is officially the Christmas Season for me!

    Show us your great photography thread!

    This is a scan from a slide that I took late one evening in the mid 1970's while hunting down on the Red River near Garland, Arkansas.

    Help buying new TV, old one died (TV bought!)

    When our old Sony XBR TV started showing its age, we, I 😂, decided to upgrade to 4K and went with a Sony XBR-55X930E LED 4K Ultra HD HDR Smart TV (approximately $1200). I really wanted a Sony OLED, but just couldn't justify an additional $1000. The Sony XBR-55X930E is a great TV and the Sony UBP-X800 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Player I bought to go with it produces an incredible picture when playing Blu-ray 4K movies, actually, any Blu-ray movies or concerts! Lots to choose from out there, but that's what we have and we are happy with it!

    What I Got Today!

    @K5SS, thanks for posting about your AC INFINITY AIRCOM T10 cooling equipment!!! I’ve felt a need to add cooling for my Marantz SR5012 because it runs pretty hot. Matter of fact, after discussions with Marantz Technical Support, I sent an SR6012 back to Amazon because it was running well over 120 degrees, and that was without a lot of stress. My SR5012 runs under 120 at max heat, but in my opinion, it still needs some cooling. After seeing your post in the “What I Got Today” section, I did a search on Amazon and found the model that was right for me. I went with the AC INFINITY AIRCOM T8 because it has rear exhaust and my equipment cabinet is open in the back. Since it was Prime and fulfilled by Amazon there were no taxes and when I ordered it on Friday it was guaranteed Sunday delivery; it arrived this afternoon! I’ll install it tomorrow and give it the maximum test tomorrow evening during my Music & Merlot Blu-ray DVD Surround Concert session.

    Pipe bomb guy arrested

    This guy seemed to be a rolling billboard for "whacko" and may just be someone that wanted to jump in and get caught for the notoriety, we'll see! Based on the geographical spread of all of the recipients I suspect there is a network of individuals involved, so more perps to locate, I don't think this is done! Also, in my opinion, there needs to be appropriate actions taken against all of the individuals and groups that are causing chaos and incivility in the streets and public places; regardless of which side of the political spectrum you are on!
