    Covid19 redux

    This is interesting. "Second wave" of CV1984 unlikely. https://www.pressandjournal.co.uk/fp/news/politics/scottish-politics/2175148/coronavirus-second-wave-of-deadly-virus-described-as-very-unlikely-by-expert/

    By this argument, the entire thread should have been shut down or at the minimum the videos posted by other members should have been removed but that is not what has happened. Those actions infer bias and the resulting actions show abuse of power. Secondly, my dismissal of Klipsch products has nothing to do with the ability to link to outside resources, but Orwellian abuse of power by people who disagree with the information I have shared. Its childish full stop. Lastly, nothing I posted goes against forum moderation. I would like this escalated to a superior.

    No such thing as hate speech. . . . [well that's a troubling thought. This is a private audio forum for Klipsch fans. There are plenty of other places for you to have those conversations and express your views. Klipsch doesn't want or need this place to be a springboard to the off beat stuff. The people here are plenty smart to go off and find these things on their own, they don't need people to share the links. I'm sorry YouTube is blocking videos, but we just don't need people to help us find the hidden. I'm sorry to hear that your appreciation for the best speakers made is dependent upon your ability to link to outside sources having nothing to do with audio, PWK, or Klipsch speakers].

    Its not just the realm of possibility, many hospitals are in fact doing exactly this. The covid 19 death rate is inflated.

    What is worse. A. Covid 19 B. Collapse of the economy (no food = murder en masse) Forget the massive amount of doctors coming out left and right telling us that the effects of covid 19 are FAR FAR less than predicted. The death toll FAR less than predicted. Forget that the death numbers have been padded. Forget that the "virus" seems to encapsulate the symptoms of just about every illness known to man and this varies from person to person. If none of that makes you skeptical, or question what is going on, then I have some oceanfront property to sell you in Arkansas for pennies on the dollar. But even that being said. None of that matters if we stay inside thinking we are making a difference while the economy around us collapses. I can tell you for certain, 100% that when people are being kicked out of their homes from no money, have no food due to a lack of money that poo will hit the fan. If that continues and we lose power and or water....games over. If Covid mortality rate was 25%, we would STILL be better off working and keeping the economy afloat. Study the Holodomor, people die FAST in the 10's of millions when food and water are not readily available.
  7. There is a reason the magazine is called Stereofool. The ONLY way to determine how good or bad a speaker is going to sound to you is in your room with your gear.
  8. Ya, food intake is the primary culprit. Food with a high purine count can wreak havoc for people whos bodies crystalize those purines. Shell fish, read meat, some fish, turkey, spinach, asparagus (although I think the jury is out on high purine veggies causing gout) have high purine counts. Those purines gather around joints (I am guessing from gravity, usually feet) and crystalize. This causes massive inflammation and places jagged crystals in the joints. So bending a toe is near impossible due to inflammation and sheer pain of trying to bend a joint with stabby crystals in it. Gout sucks. Changing diet or going on medication (allopurinol) seem to be the only way to combat it. I don't like taking drugs, so I just try to not eat as much red meat. I think milk helps it, and I know potassium does. I have found that if I start to feel the twinge of gout coming on, the best thing to do is eat lightly, non high purine foods, sometimes fasting helps and to drink a ton of water and lemon water. Not lemonade, sugar is bad news, but lemon squeezed into a glass of water. Might have to do this for 2-3 days or a week, but it beats dealing with it if you get a full on attack. Gout is amazingly crippling and painful.
  9. Potassium (bananas, potatoes) and Lemon water do wonders for me (outside of staying away from anything with a high purine count). I squeeze half a lemon into a glass and mix it with about 16oz of water and chug that. Do that 3x a day or so. Obviously staying hydrated and chugging water is essential for gout, but the lemon really works for me. Dark cherries are supposed to help with inflammation, but I don't think I ever really saw any benefit. Lemons seem to be key for gout and kidney stones, at least uric acid ones. I sincerely wish you the best. I know full well what its like to hobble and not sleep. Where a thin, light weight sheet resting on your foot sends enough pain to almost make you pass out.
  10. Thank you Peter! You kick ***!!!
  11. Hello all. May I get a member who owns a Heresy III to measure the speakers cabinet in height without the stands. I may purchase a Heresy III to place in a stereo cabinet without the stand. The sides and depth are not an issue but I think it will come close in height. It currently will not fit with the dimensions listed on the Klipsch literature for the Heresy III, but I assume those dimensions include the stand. If this is the case, they may fit without the stand attached. Thank you.
  12. Her song has recorded distortion, your speakers are fine. They most likely sound "worse" (in actuality better) than the 600's because they are a better speaker. The Smashing Pumpkins song Ava Adore has a recorded distortion at the start of the track as well.
  13. How does the Heresy IV compare to the Forte III?
