  1. Great album,,, actually the very first cassette I ever owned and the first song (smoke on the water) I learned to play on the guitar!

    Timing is a little off but I suspect that is due to a very worn belt. Once I got the alignment right, the soundstage really blossomed, and the sound floor is very low.

    I really didn't need a fifth turntable but I have always wanted a Thorens, Its a TD-145 which is same as a TD-160 but has auto lift with shut off at end of record. New belt, dustcover and armrest on the way. Looking into cartridge options if anyone has suggestions. Currently using a Shure M91-ED and it sounds really good but I think a better match might be out there.
  4. Mary Ann was much sexier than Ginger and as a rule I prefer redheads. Barbra Eden was as about as "Hot" as the human genome was capable of producing.
  5. Lets face it: prices on heritage Klipsch speakers have gotten out of hand. I have 2 pairs that could sell for triple what I paid but I didn't buy them to make money so I will continue to enjoy them and maybe improve them instead of moving up the food chain because I cannot afford to. Its a free market so whatever someone is willing to pay dictates value.

    Couldn't resist. Been looking for a 299c to pair with my chorus lls. Possibly the prettiest receiver ever made and has a 299c amp section.

  9. The going rate for La Scalas has definitely been trending upwards. I have been watching for a pair locally for a while now and anything nice tends to be priced 2k or more. Hard to tell from just a couple pics but yours appear below average cosmetically, which really does matter.
  10. OMG those Khorns are so sweet looking! Pretty rare to see these kind of offerings available.
  11. You might want to specify the NOS offerings as they will be highly coveted.
  12. Animals are so much better than humans. they don't lie, connive or destroy for the sake of destruction. They are simply true to their nature. I lost my best friend the day after Christmas 2018 and still have not gotten over it, so I empathize with your loss. It seems you have been blessed with some special companions, so revel in their presence while you can.
  13. He may not have been blessed with the most mellifluous voice but he could sure turn a phrase. His music is simple and pure and speaks to ones soul. I'm guessing his compositions have been covered by more great musicians than any other contemporary songwriter. I'll share one of my favorites:
  14. To a great American treasure on his 80th birthday. Your music and your artistry have greatly enriched my life. Thank you! Happy Birthday Bob Dylan!
