  1. I picked up a pair of 1979 Heresy 1 a few weeks ago. Was driving them with my Topping PA3s and began to understand why everyone says they've no bass. I could hear it clear but there was no body to it. Crisp and clear-no presence. A Klipsch KG SW sub became available here. Figured that would cover it and I'm sure it will. Also spent the past few weeks on placement and got it where I was OK with soundstage...OK maybe a little disappointed. So I began looking at amplifiers. Torn between Yamaha A-S801 and Schiit Vidar. In the end the cost between would be similar 'cause I'd need a pre for the Vidar. Last night I was sitting around and decided to bring my Fisher 440T out from the bedroom system and see how they sounded when paired with the old Fisher. The 440T is the reason I sought vintage Heresy anyways. Oh my! They have come alive....bass....soundstage gained height width and depth. And the overall sound is much improved. Lost some way high detail and there's a hiss but it's minor and only audible when nothing is playing so I can deal with it. For now. Kinda like going to a concert and the PA set up has some hiss. And all this is through a cheap Logitech bluetooth adapter which I'm sure isn't the best audio path. I'm still going to pick up the sub 'cause I want a passive sub that will extend the range but not one made more for HT. I'm beginning to understand synergistic pairings. Now what to do for the bedroom......
  2. Only while listening to Interstellar Overdrive on vinyl.
  3. My first winter in this house. It's rural. The water system has the ability to be run by a generator. And I've 2 sources,a well and a spring. All it takes is a couple valves and turn on a different pump. But frozen water presents issues it cannot cope with. I need to fix that. I'll be able to go "off grid" in the next year or so.
  4. Well I've returned to the 19th century. I have hot and cold running water again. I gotta take some steps to insure this doesn't happen again.
  5. If that's all ya have to worry about life is good.
  6. All it takes is to stumble onto a hive and disturb them. Life is dangerous and your safety is your own responsibility...no one else's. Learn and act accordingly. You live somewhere we weren't meant to live. Too easy to die in the desert.
  7. Why did you kill it? We have Copperheads around here and they have a bad attitude. I don't kill them. We have Timber Rattlers too. Leave them alone as well. They mean me no harm unless I f*&k with them and I don't. Treat them with a healthy respect. Going on 64 and haven't been bitten yet.
  8. If you want it and no one will miss meals I say have at it.
  9. Well Merry Christmas to me. Woke up to no water. Pipes frozen. Supply shut off and water heater too. Dammit. I have to work so it'll be a few days before I have water at home.
  10. All that matters is they make you happy Dave. However they are stunning. Nice work.

    Oh yeah nothing beats the smell of VP race fuel (R.I.P. M8) with a load of Castor 927 at 32:1 in the morning.

    40+ years of motocross. I still have my racebikes but haven't ridden them in a couple years. I've done everything except hillclimb and ice racing. MX was just an easy way to race a lot. Compared to other forms it's dirt cheap. Dirt track can be "budget" racing as well but it depends on where ya live. There's an MX track almost everywhere. In all that I've done the thrill of an open class two stroke motocross bike is hard to beat. I still have my 1980 YZ465. Cars of that caliber are just too expensive to buy let alone race.

    Damn I thought you were joking. That being said try landspeed racing. The tuning is...different. Fuel demand is unbelievable in a long run. There's a mile run in Arkansas in May this coming year. Look here. https://www.ectamile.com/
  16. It's going to be a long time before Covid is tamped down. Take care.

    I know how hard it is to go that fast in a standing start mile. Hell 200MPH is a serious accomplishment. Everyone who thinks their car/motorcycle will leave as a 200MPH club member heads home shaking their heads wondering what happened.. Congrats on a seriously stout run. Hope they go to Bonneville. Love to see that monster's accomplishment on the big course.
  19. Sent a text to the number provided. Thanks again.
  20. I did but first time it wasn't there. Too bad it's at Delfest. I'll pass. A real cluster that one.
  21. Where did you find that? nope I could walk there. It'd take a few hours but I could do it.
  22. Unfortunately it appears I'll need to fly anywhere they'll be playing. EDIT:Listened to a bit on streaming app. Too bad they aren't closer. Good music.
  23. If it's a Milwaukee 8 they recommend Harley Syn3. made for Harley by Citgo. An above average oil but not a true synthetic. It's a group III which has a mineral base stock with a heavy additive package. Personally I run Mobil 1 15w50. With OEM Harley oil filters.
