  1. Is this Jeffrey Medwin masquerading as a new guy?
  2. Glad to read you gents resolved your problem. I ran 10-200 hz test tones thru my CW3 last night. They will produce sound @ 30 hz. Here is an mp3 file with 10-200 hz short duration test tones if it will be of any benefit to you. audiocheck.net_LF 10-200 hz.mp3
  3. Janis was at Woodstock in August 1969 too.
  4. Oh yeah, you were "experienced". Are you experienced? Have you ever been experienced? Well, I have.... Jimi was legendary. Self taught on the guitar, played a RH guitar upside down, left handed. But he phucked up like Janis and died in his own vomit. Edit: Actually Jimi went first, then Janis, within a month of each other. Sept and Oct 1970 respectively.
  5. There are several variations out there, all from China. Fosi Audio sells em on amazon, the one above, Nobsound/Douk Mall on ebay. I picked up one of the Fosi amps with bass and treble adjustments off amazon to drive a pair of Elac 6.2 speakers on my desktop pc. The good thing about purchasing the unit from amazon is you get returns and warranty assured by amazon policies. And it comes complete with a power supply. The person selling em on amazon has a good rep, you can read the reviews if you choose to. I am very pleased with my unit, drives my Elacs very well and zero noise. Had it in operation since Dec 2018. I wouldn't buy any unit without the bass and treble adjustments. You can buy em cheaper on ebay from China, but if it craps out you're on your own. Not worth the cost of return shipping to China. I am so pleased with mine many times I have thought of purchasing another just to have. I mean for $67 delivered with PS and tone controls. They offer units with bluetooth too. I bet it would drive my CWs too just for fun, but I have an AVR serving there. Here is one on ebay for $38 delivered, no power supply: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Finished-TPA3116-LM1036-tone-digital-amplifier-Class-D-amp-50W-50W/222185254033 Fosi unit I purchased on amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Audio-Amplifier-Receiver-Integrated-Speakers/dp/B076P2VS9H/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?crid=R3RDUPS0P4ID&keywords=fosi+audio+amplifier&qid=1566577428&s=gateway&sprefix=fosi%2Caps%2C170&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&smid=ATV3LXZ3ZXOW8&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUFCQU5BU0wySFNMVkMmZW5jcnlwdGVkSWQ9QTA3OTE1NzM3OTFZR1dFWUVPS00mZW5jcnlwdGVkQWRJZD1BMDEwMDY1NFdHS0szUUJEWDQzNyZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=
  6. Yamaha warranty is non-transferable: https://usa.yamaha.com/files/ocp/en_us/support/warranty/audio_visual/AV_PRODUCTS_2013_fka_Home_Audio.pdf I own a Yamaha AVR.
  7. Better to think about the Woodstock experience, and the music. And bare breasts.
  8. Yes, I do remember him now that you bring it up. Murdered by his own, the Nation of Islam. Shotgun blast to the chest, then 8 or 10 rounds from pistols. One of the more violent assassinations of the time. Saw the docu movie a few years ago. Makes one ponder, so many public assassinations in the 60s. I guess one could attribute it to national unrest and hate. Throw in George Wallace too, they just didn't succeed completely. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malcolm_X#Assassination
  9. I have Corn iiis and a Yamaha AVR with 90 wpc clean. Way more than enough steam to drive the Corns very well. I listen to mostly rock @ peak levels < 95 db. I think you will be very pleased with the Mac and the Corns working together. Some users drive Corns with flea power tube amps.
  10. I vote for Yamaha, I very recently purchased a rx-v685 AVR. Was a Denon guy for many years but no longer. Still have my Denon AVR-3000 I purchased 25+ years ago. Most all of the Yamaha AVR offerings share the same software/features. It becomes a question on number of channels you need, and output power levels. Advantage series adds another year of warranty (3). EDIT: here is a copy of Yamaha Advantage product warranty (3 years to original purchaser, not 4 as stated above): https://usa.yamaha.com/files/ocp/en_us/support/warranty/audio_visual/AV_Home_Audio_AV_Receiver_Series_RX-A_2013.pdf
  11. Well stated my friend. I was much younger but I remember some of the times and the music of the 60s. And there was unrest in our nation in the hearts of many, mostly younger folks. I remember a young man climbing high in a Texas university tower and shooting people he didn't even know. (I'm originally from TX) I remember the murders of JFK, ML King, and Bobby. I remember most vividly Walter Conkite on the CBS evening news daily talking of a conflict 8000 miles away from home, and how many American soldiers had been killed that day. I remember the Black Panthers, the social unrest, and a shooting at Kent State University. I remember flower power, free love, and all the fine young women, some losing their bras and tops in public. (and my padna's older sister Shay, she was a fine hippy and the subject of many of my fantasies at the time) But mostly I remember the music. Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Bob Dylan, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Santana, and many more. Thank God for the music otherwise we might have just gone completely insane. (Pink Floyd would write of this) No doubt Woodstock was a temporary escape for many of the younger generation. I'll leave you with this, one of the great storytellers of the 60s.
