  1. Just wanted to add that I have dealt with this guy relatively recently and he was an open and honest person to work with. He sells a lot of stuff out of his basement, knows his stuff, and is not looking to make a killing on his resells. If you are in the area he is worth getting to know as he somehow has access to a ton of equipment.

    I've had a 6P for 3 plus years.  It's been a great phone.  Battery is replaceable if you're not squeamish. 

     

    I have had mine for 2 plus years and its a great phone. Google-fi is the way to go. Works great for calls and data over wi-fi. Only time I had to use cellular data was when hurricane took power out for a week.

    I respect your opinion, but that is original heresys VS heresy IIIs which are leagues apart.   Pairing with a sub depends on the quality of the sub. I certainly wouldn't pair a large diameter one note sub designed solely for HT impact.   You can easily pull a sub out into the room a little and smooth bass response, but lose a little bit impact.   It does require a reasomable amount of time and experimentation to get it right.   The velodyne and other servo type subs are very tight, fast and musical IMO for music.   They can be had for reasonable obey especially at the price point of the heresy IIIs.  

     

    They may well be "leagues" apart but they have similar low end limitations. If you have found subs works for you that's awesome. For music, I have found, that a full range speaker sounds better to my ears. Maybe its just psychological ... who knows. Just sharing my thoughts.

    My question should I continue to wait? Or pick up the 3's

     

    Thanks

     

     

     

    My advice is that it depends upon personal listening preferences and environment.

     

    I own a pair of original Heresys and purchased Chorus IIs because because I was unhappy listening to music with a sub. I am a big fan of subs for HT ... for music not so much.

     

    Love my CHIIs but they can be a placement headache. Still searching for the perfect positioning which both sounds good and doesn't make my living room unlivable. 


  5. Finally able to catch my breath so thought I do a quick post. House suffered no structural damage. Got lucky and all the big limbs that came down fell away from the house. Neighbors not so lucky. Trees down all over our area and no one I know has power other than generators. We have full emergency generator power where I work and I have been putting in full days since Sat. Probably won't have power at home for several more days and it's gonna take weeks to clean up my back yard. All in all feel pretty lucky. River is supposed to crest on Thurs. so still have that to worry about.

  6. Finished up my preparations for the storm. All electronics and vinyl collection bagged in plastic and everything that I had a box for boxed as well.

     

    I  just remembered that I forgot the most important supply for riding out a storm ... alcohol! Might just take a drive but I doubt anyone is still open. Been pretty calm so far occasional gusts starting up.

     

    The worst of it is supposed to be early tomorrow  through tomorrow night. I expect the power to go out tonight as they usually shut the grid down  when gusts reach hurricane strength just as a precaution.

     

    Stay safe everyone and Good luck!

    The local TV news station was reporting live from the West Virginia Turnpike which is I-77 going south.   As the reporter was talking there was truck after truck after truck with the booms on them from the local electric company heading south.  The Turnpike Commission has temporarily lifted the weight restrictions so repair vehicles can easily get to the hurricane zone.

     

    As I look up (I'm between Columbus and Pittsburgh) I can see the front of the hurricane fingers moving counter-clockwise.  They look like dark low hanging clouds and they are curved.  Usually they are higher, wispy looking and curved.  This looks different than anything I've seen before in my lifetime.

     

    Talk about irony. The 11 PM update downgrades Florence to a cat 2, but tracks it right over my location. I can't wait for this storm to GO AWAY.

    That's comforting to hear.  I think their help will be  greatly needed. Florence seems determined to hit Wilmington. We might get lucky if she stalls out and weakens significantly. Even then the flooding is likely to be massive.

    Large contractor trash bags work great, strong and big enough to put a Cornwall in, one from the bottom and another over the top taped up. Many electronics can be covered, it's a cheap way to protect if a roof were to disappear, perfect no but cheap and covers alot.

     

    Yup, that's what I'm using. At work we call them "body Bags". Don't mean to be morbid, but I consider them to be lifesavers. My Chorus IIs fit with room to spare.
