  1. Funny, the only cars & trucks I've ever owned which never required a repair were Fords. Then again, I favor European cars so I deserve what I get, right? ETA: Yes, generally speaking Toyotas are the best. The stats don't lie.
  2. Just curious, on how many different forums have you posted this same (or similar) thread? I've seen it a few different places. How on earth do you even keep up? Ciao.
  3. FWIW, I have/had the Martin Logan Motion 15, the HTD L3s, Infinity EMITs and others (not all technically ribbons), and more than anything else I'd say the results depend on how well-damped your listening environment is and especially what sort of music you favor. I listen to a lot of acoustic piano jazz and the shimmering, evanescent effect from these tweeters can be captivating. With hard rock and even full-orchestra classical, not quite so much. There's also the matter of personal taste. In all, quite a number of variables--which is more the rule than the exception in this business.
  4. Those Skylan stands are just about the most attractive ones out there.
  5. Two spectacular Belles and.....HOW DARE YOU HAVE TWO LUXMANS!! [runs off screaming]
  6. In all seriousness, it's likely that both conductors are made of aluminum, and one is copper-plated --for identification more than anything else. ETA: I posted the chart merely to indicate that copper, silver, gold, and aluminum are actually quite close to one another in conductance.
  7. Very good point. The name recognition factor would be colossal. And young people do still go to movies, even if the movies suck.
  8. Unlikely that they will ever look pristine, especially for a $200. Tons of Heritage III models are showing up damaged.
  9. Which co-ordinates better with your other wood furniture, trim, etc?
  10. Well, it depends. In my case I listen in a very well-damped space and over 90% of my listening is to acoustic piano jazz. I actually run a sub all the time but I seldom need it. Of course when I put on Led Zeppelin (or even full-bore classical) it's another matter. The point is that situations vary, and one man's hard-and-fast rule may be another's flexible option. My compliments to the OP and his handsome speakers with natural-fabric grilles!
  11. PM sent re: Thorens TT
  12. Thanks... yes I bought some which arrived folded and had to spend some time ironing it out. Haven't met him (he's dead, right?) but for the sake of argument, using profanity in your personal life (which I'm happy to do) is quite different from disseminating it in the public sphere, or having it represent your company. If Klipsch (the company) used profanity in its marketing materials while PWK was alive (he's dead, right?) then I will happily stand corrected. Example: I'm seeing the "F" word just about everywhere nowadays. If that's progress, count me out.
  13. Do you mean braided? Or stranded?
  14. Couldn't agree more, and I see no reason to harass little lambs either. But maybe it's hot and they need a haircut? Meanwhile, I'd be happy if we could just get Klipsch to stop using profanity in their marketing materials. I can't help but imagine PWK would object to that as well. But the current owners gotta keep it realz I guess.
