  1. I purchased the PrimaLuna EVO 300 in April 2019, along with a SVS SB4000 Sub. The EL tubes that it comes with are awesome with a lot of speakers but really needed KT150's with my 1970's LaScala's. The LaScalas have the Crites upgrades and A4500 networks and I couldn't be happier with the combination. The KT150's have more low and high end and almost have a solid state sound to them (almost), but I love the EVO300 with my current set up. I listened to a few different amps at Upscale Audio in LaVerne CA and the Primaluna was the sound that I was looking for.
  2. Hi HDBR. Man your Trifocals! That's an F-35 in that Section. Actually NAS Lemoore is the West Coasts only F-35 RAG for the Navy. The East Coast has Oceana. The 35's are substantially louder than the Supers so Lemoore was the best fit. Even Whidbey is taking a lot of heat for the increase in noise complaints from the civilians in the area. Mostly because the number of flights has increased and the fact that they're louder than the the EA-6Bs. I was a Surface Warfare Officer via the aviation pipeline due to a change in my depth perception. So like the RAP song goes, I'm On A Mutha F__in' Boat! Great song to play loudly. Below is a great video of Visual Route 1355 near Whidbey, If you have a few minutes to spare its a great example of the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. It's one of the better training routes for maintaining Low Level currency. At night, with no moon it gets a whole lot more fun. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9W48BYDATkI Enjoy! R/ Mike
  3. Hi JL, Other than the Kenyon Gyro my equipment is pretty middle of the high end road. Canon 7D MarkII and some older bodies, EF 100-400 F4-5.6L IS III USM (typical air show lens), EF 70-200MM F/2.8L IS III USM and a couple of other portrait and wide angle lenses. When I take my Bush Hawk support onto to MIL bases I get a few looks as it looks more like a stabilized rifle with its trigger/pistol grip but lately I've been using it all on top of a tripod and or on a JOBU Jr. gimble on the tripod. Once the MP's check out my BushHawk, it's never been an issue taking it on base. Almost as fun as listening to a great sounding system, but a whole lot more mobile. Do you partake in photography? Have a great evening. Mike
  4. The lead aircraft is actually an FJ-4 Fury. In fact, it's domiciled up in Idaho and is the Last Flying Fury in the world. A lot of folks that see it believe that it's an F-86 Thank you for the compliments on the pics. Much appreciated.

  5. Yes. I've been going to Airshows ever since the early 80's, my Navy active duty days I started out with an old Canon AE-1 Program and now ...think of it like the the world of high end audio equipment. Truly depends on your taste and wallet. Of course my Kenyon Gyro makes my hands look more stable than they really are. Enjoy the weekend. Thanks.
  6. A few pics below from the NAS Lemoore Sept 2019 Show. A great auditory experience for all ages
  7. I personally enjoy the EVO300 PL with KT150s and Red Lion Re-Issue preamp tubes with LaScalas that have all the Crites upgraded drivers and A-4500 network. You can't go wrong with PL IMO.
  8. Thought I'd share some of my low-resolution pics form the air show this afternoon at NAS Lemoore. Thought some audio types here might appreciate the visuals. Lemoore is the west coast home of the Navy's F-35 Training Command. The Audio portion of the show was equally impressive
  9. I think you answered your own question. The REL would probably be most logical choice.
  10. Another "Good Stuff" bump. I have a single SB-4000 sealed and it's amazing.
  11. Not trying to make things more complex for you but I tend to look for the "consensus" in reviews and recommendations when switching to a manufacturer that I've not had previous personal experience with. (Have you owned any Luman products before?) The downside to consensus is that no relatively decent product line gets mediocre reviews, they are all outstanding values! So I evaluate the worst case scenarios. What kind of warranty? How long is the warranty for and what specifically does it cover? Does my dealer offer a swap program if you hate it? I became a PrimaLuna owner a few years ago coming from using other products and I'm happy with my decision. I'm sure you will be happy once you decide which way to go. What were you using previously?
  12. Might this be an Irish Wolf Hound?
  13. Sound almost catching up to the transducers.
  14. There is another Heritage dealer in CA that's a little bit closer to SF as compared to Upscale Audio. I believe Paradigm has some Lascalas in downtown Sacramento and some other Heritage units up at their Roseville store. I've auditioned some speakers at Upscale in LaVerne CA and his folks are Very knowledgable about all things Audiophile.
  15. I'll make an attempt to redeem myself. I took these F-35 pics at HILL AFB in Ogden UT June last year.
