  1. Is there any reason you can't keep this setup in the family? Have you listened to it at all? This is a awesome collection!
  2. It just sediment at the bottom of the tank, not a surprise if its a 20 year old unit. Once the new one is installed its a good practice to drain and flush it out one a year to keep the sediment from accumulating. This will also prolong the life of the tank.
  3. Gas water heaters have a limited lifespan irregardless of brand or warranty. I'd plan for replacement every 10-15 years and if you get a few more years out of them then its a win. I'd skip any wifi monitoring, etc.... there's no need for it and it only adds unnecessary complexity and expense.
  4. FYI if you go through a plumber you'll need to get a permit, inspection and possibly increase the scope to address other items (such as adding straps in case of earthquake, adding an external drain, flexible connections, replace leaky valves), etc... Not necessarily a bad thing but it can quickly increase the cost beyond what you initially expected. This recently happened to my mother in law when she was selling her house in WA. A $500 gas hot water heater ended up being closer to $1,800 when it was all said and done.
  5. Wow quite the thread! I randomly came across this as I'm in "research mode" for my first set of large speakers and have narrowed my focus down to building some Cornscala's. For the price/performance ratio assuming you are comfortable with DIY it seems like this would be hard to beat. As much as I'd like to throw down for the Cornwall 4's i'm not there just yet. I've seen reasonable deals on Cornwall II's (around $1k) but they are all in the midwest or east coast, here in Oregon folks want $2k for the same thing and they almost never come up for sale. In any case my plan is to use plywood to build the Cornscala's, most likely I'll order the kit from Crites that includes the motorboard, crossover and speakers.
  6. My weekend/fun car has a manual transmission. Wouldn't have it any other way.

  8. Just an alert, saw these on craigslist. They look beautiful, but as most folks are saying the price seems high.

  10. I'm interested in these, they look great and at a good price. Getting them to Oregon.... hmmm, there must be a way to do it for a reasonable price.
  11. Those look great! Glad to hear you are keeping them to enjoy. On a side note, who did you use for transit, how were the packaged and what did it cost?

  13. I always use "look what I saved" when it comes to the garage. How do you think I can justify owning an old landcruiser and some older BMW's.... When I rebuilt the steering knuckles on the landcruiser I mentioned that I saved $2k since I didn't have to hire it out. The same logic can be applied to audio equipment, its all about setting expectations high and coming in below budget. When your significant other thinks you will be spending $500 on something all of the sudden $100 seems like a bargain!
  14. I'm new to this forum but the pricing seems way too high. I've been scanning the market for a nice set of Forte I, Forte II, Chorus I, Chorus II or Cornwall's for a while and its interesting to see what comes up. I've also never listened to any of these so if someone is in Central Oregon and has a setup they want to demo I'm all ears.
