    Property Boundry?

    You need an attorney who handles real property and specifically quiet title actions. If you let this go for too long (or have already done so) he might have a valid adverse possession claim against you depending on the laws in your state. If you decide to try to save a buck you might lose claim to part of your property. You might not need a lawsuit (or maybe you do need a quiet title action), but you do need competent advice on how to proceed.

    Help set up a HT for a friend

    A friend wants to set up a home theater. He wants a 120" screen, projector, receiver and speakers. Figure a budget of about $6yK max, but preferably much less. Used is OK. What do you think. Used is OK, especially for the speakers. Located in Las Vegas NV.
  3. Order a few of these and let us know what you think https://www.ebay.com/itm/Klipsch-Logo-plastic-Gold-80-mm-3/152826832150?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649

    Those are my old speakers. They looked like the pic where they are shinny. Beautiful speakers and only about 6 pairs made per HDBR Builder.

    New in my Life Raising Chickens

    You are lucky that you can raise chickens. A friend moved to Utah about three hours away and is raising chicks and other animals. Sounds great but I cannot live in the cold. I actually just ordered a 1/12 grass fed cow from this place last night. They deliver to a warehouse in Las Vegas that is very close. Nice service and much less than organic meat at a supermarket. https://bar10beef.com/store/product/grand-canyon-package
  6. Does anyone have an Acoustic Research XA turntable? A friend has one and I do not know much about it, but i want to help him out.

    SOLD: Klipsch Palladium P37F and P27C in Chicagoland

    Similar here, I had the N801s and then the S800s. They required HUGE amps to drive. The Palladiums are so much easier to drive and just seem to do everything right. I love them.

    Need a source for in wall low voltage wire

    I need a source for 4/22, 2/22 and 2/18 in wall low voltage wire. I found what looks like a very good deal on Amazon, but because it takes so much effort to put this wire in, I am afraid of risking cheap wire that might fail. Can anyone make a recommendation? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00634FCLE/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A24SNXJMOW06KM&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00YO2IXWW/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

    SOLD: Klipsch Palladium P37F and P27C in Chicagoland

    If anyone is seriously considering these, just buy the center too. You will regret not getting it, even if you just plan on two channel because that can change. I started 2 channel and now have Palladium surround. The center is awesome for movies and TV. No disappointment. If Klipsch had marketed these under a different name (like Toyota / Lexus) this line would have sold like crazy. The Audio-snobs just don't like "Best Buy Brands" although I can say that I prefer these to the B&W 800 series.

    What are you going to do with 13 pairs of Fortes?

    Turntable Recommendations

    You were looking at the cheaper tables. If you like DD, just get a Technics SL1200 or variant. Built like a tank.

    Wanted: pair of Klipsch P27 S Palladium

    Gigi, Overkill, but I use P37s for surrounds. There is a seller one the forum right now with a pair of P37s and a center for $3700.

    Just found this supplier and anti vibration pads

    I built 2" Mahogony shelves and use old carpet padding for isolation. Here is a pic where you can see them. I have a big sheet of old padding, comes in handy.

    Why get a different one? Keep it and change out the arm if you like. I made adapter plates on a CNC machine to add an SME arm and a Sumiko (Jelco) Arm. I sold the SME and kept the Jelco. It was way too much effort to make the mounting boards. Do a search for places the sell the mounting boards. https://www.google.com/search?q=sl1200+arm+mount&client=firefox-b-1&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjSs6e0sY3aAhVqxFkKHXE9Dw0QsAQIJg&biw=972&bih=665

    I bought the P9 to save me from myself and save some money. I figured if I bought a different model I would keep tweaking it. The P9 was already loaded and no upgrades available. I think that it is less money in the long run.

    Good choice. I have a P9 and really like it. I like the classic style table with a dust cover.

    SOLD: Klipsch Palladium P37F and P27C in Chicagoland

    Wow, good deal. Don't be afraid of Buying the P37's, they are about the same size as RF7s, not small speakers at all.

    Don't buy the expensive watch. I have a 2 tone GMT and never wear it. I thought it was cool when I was younger, now I feel silly wearing a status symbol. That Casio is one sweet watch. For $40 it is a no brainer. Get the leather band for a different look.

    My favorite watch by far: https://www.amazon.com/Casio-MDV106-1AV-Analog-Watch-Black/dp/B009KYJAJY Here is a nice band if you want to change it: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07233CWB1/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    That is a good price.

    SOLD: NOS Valves VRD hot-rodded amps (Magnequest Iron)

    If these amps are that special, it sounds like you will not replace them for anywhere near the ask price. If you can swing it, keep them. I have chased down gear to replace the exact gear that I sold and it is not fun. These are a custom and special build, why set them free?

    Then you need to keep them. You will regret selling some day.

    Wire upgrde

    Wire size causes a voltage drop over a distance. I wired outdoor lighting a few years ago and even though the lights (LEDs) only pull about 20 watts, I had to use 12 gauge wire because of the distance to the lights. Once at the lights, the 18 gauge or whatever it was inside of the lights works just fine because it is only traveling about 10". The wire from the transformer is also only 14 gage or maybe smaller, but the long run needs the large wire . Once at the speakers, the small gauge wire should be just fine inside of the speaker and whatever is used outside of the speaker is most likely overkill anyway.

    The Latest in High End Audio

    A friend had the MAXX speakers and all VTL gear and set up right, room treatment and all dialed in. He id it right and they did exactly what they were supposed to do and had great imaging, bass, etc. I can only describe it as stripping away all distortion and colorations, even distortion that you did not know was there. But the sound was unusual and I can't say that I liked it or would want to listen to it all of the time. I did not sell my speakers and go down that path, the end result was just different. I would say the exact opposite of a Sonus Faber. If you ever get a chance to hear them properly set up, do it, but don't expect to hear them at their best (or the way that they are intended) at a show.
