we’re just fulfilling our civic duty -- we’re constantly being told to be involved, vote, stay informed ... politics is in our face most of the time. well, some of us didn’t listen -- i didn’t vote in this recent election.
interesting ... a thread about the history and the impact that the “Private Section” and the “No BS Sections” have had on the forum. (I’m not serious).
The New York Times said it best;
“The place of honor that Mr. Downie occupies in Canada’s national imagination has no parallel in the United States. Imagine Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and Michael Stipe combined into one sensitive, oblique poet-philosopher, and you’re getting close.”
I would say close but not very close.
The documentary “Long Time Running” will be on utube soon. It was on national tv tonight and if you are a music fan of any genre it is not to be missed. Not just about the music but a touching view of a band coming to an end.
I own the DH 550. I am pretty pleased with it. Sony cut costs in all the right places. The receiver is incredibly basic and basically offers little more than decoding, switching, and amplifying. It should do about 68w per channel into 8 ohms, Klipsch speakers are incredibly easy to drive, but if I were you, I’d stretch your budget just a bit more and go with a Denon or onkyo entry level receiver.
Sorry, photo post limited but a few follow. These both read 3.4 ohms on a medium priced Gardner Bender meter, no blemishes, no finish scares even in mounting holes. As close to mint as available in these drivers.
