    JBL 1400 Synthesis Array

    These look really interesting, but 89 db efficiency from a horn speaker? I was speaking to a seller about 10 years a go and he had a pair of Wilsons and these and said that the JBLs were better sounding speakers. At 89 db efficiency I'd go for a pair of B&W 800 series instead. https://mohave.craigslist.org/ele/d/laughlin-jbl-1400-synthesis-array/6774262297.html

    No, it is definitely a very bad area. Right by the Boulevard mall, where all of the anchor tenants have fled away.

    He lives in a rough neighborhood. And from his ad: "Scam artist don't waist my time. I know all your tricks you scum of the earth pigs." May have to sit this one out.

    Anyone have a Denon TT for sale

    Accesories4less blames Klipschorns

    Years ago I drove K Horms with a cheap tripath chip amp with no problems. Cut your losses and send the unit back and move on. FWIW, I used a Pioneer Elite receiver to drive palladiums (a harder load) and it worked fine ( I never pushed it)

    domes of silence

    Sweet rug. Have you looked into one of these yet (gotta keep warm): https://www.pendleton-usa.com/product/the-original-westerley-227898.html?rv=true&mrkgcl=846&mrkgadid=1497500877&adpos=1o2&creative=46149283332&device=c&matchtype=&network=g&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIpJPPkueQ3wIVCdtkCh07hA79EAQYAiABEgL56vD_BwE This is a very good price. I got one for $220 last year and was happy to get if for that price. It is really warm, I wear it out all the time. They run large. I bought a medium and it seems to be a good fit.

    domes of silence

    How about this? A little pricey and smaller than the original at 5' x 7', but it is the one. Look very closely at the pattern. I have this in an 8' x 11' rug and another matching rug I picked up last year. https://www.ebay.com/itm/5-X-7-Red-Blue-Traditional-Persian-Kashan-Oriental-Area-Rug-Hand-knotted-Wool/262464059633

    domes of silence

    Make sure they match so they tie the room together. Do not use spikes on a hardwood floor! A guy on the B&W forum did this and destroyed his beautiful hardwood floors with audiophile crap. Buy some rubber feet. That will couple the speakers to the floor. The only concern is oil from the rubber staining the floor.

    Stud Finders - What are you using

    I have an old Zircon stud finder from the 1980's. Still works but not the best tool. I see there are new ones that sense copper pipes and wires. What do you use?

    Japanese Kitchen Knife

    I went through the same thing. Victorinox makes great knives that are not that expensive. They are thin and very sharp. Here is a set - I caught this on sale for about $60 last year. I added about 5 more 4" and 5" paring knives. https://www.amazon.com/Victorinox-5-Piece-Chefs-Molded-Handles/dp/B002OOVA0E/ref=asc_df_B002OOVA0E/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=198060092138&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=6524650035967153989&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9030835&hvtargid=pla-379227720685&psc=1 This is a very good deal: https://www.amazon.com/Victorinox-Swiss-Piece-Utility-Knife/dp/B007JTO6UA/ref=lp_18292323011_1_13?srs=18292323011&ie=UTF8&qid=1542914265&sr=8-13 I also bought a $6 sharpening stone and some oil from Amazon.

    Synthetic Motor Oil.....

    it takes me a few years to rack up enough miles to warrant a change of synthetic oil. This should not degrade the oil. Didn't someone here state that they use Royal Purple and do not change the oil, just replenish it?

    Camera Recommendations

    My wife likes the pictures that our cell phone takes (Samsung Galaxy S5. I hate using the phone to take pics as we are usually hiking or doing something similar. Can anyoen recommend a camera that is easy to use and takes great pictures. Do not need pro quality.

    Synthetic Motor Oil.....

    How long can the Royal Purple go between oil changes?

    Synthetic Motor Oil.....

    Is this any better than Mobile 1? I checked the royal Purple website and "high mileage" oil helps to keep seals expanded and sealed. Good to know.

    Bath is easy, get them to eat well and exercise.

    Synthetic Motor Oil.....

    My motorcycle (BMW R1200) is known for taking a very long time for the rings to fully seat. The owners manual states to use dino oil for the first 20,000 then switch to synthetic if you wish. That says a lot about synthetic. I have been using a 7500 mile change schedule and I ignore how long timewise between changes (which is usually a few years). Is that too short of a period, can I go 10K? I just bought a diesel vehicle based on a Mercedes Sprinter chassis and the owners manual states to use Mobile 1 synthetic and 10K intervals.

    Stud Finders - What are you using

    How well does it work? I bought three stud finders, one of the large ones with 13 or so LEDS, a smaller one like the above zircon that detects wires, studs, etc. and a magnetic one. Between the three they do very well. I am surprised at how well the magnetic one works. Great for finding drywall screws and removing them so that drywall can be removed in large sheets.
