Morning, nothing like enjoying a cup of coffee on the deck early morning. 1bf468d3c3371411cea4ab1660fccf14.jpg

Fantastic view! All I see for the past couple of days is my phone, wordle and word finder https://word-finder.com/11-letter-words/ . Unfortunately I am stuck in the hospital for another 5-7 days and there is not much to see from my window. Very happy to see that someone is doing better than me.

When I was gonna buy another pair of LS. Wife sez, "You already have some of those"

 

I don't have any of these... and are closer than the nearest supermarket. I drove cross-country to pick up my LS. I was planning the trip before I bought them, though.

Upgradeitis???  I'm stumped.  Two days of over thinking about this receiver and where it's gonna go in my line up.  I'm back to square one and going to go with my original idea of the shelves under the butcher block and building my shelves.  It may work under there but we're talking one inch or less clearance.  I'm totally outta room.  I want a nice SS system and the Mac/Heresy sound of the early 80's but...  Coffee is brewing so maybe that will help.

 

Hit Jam Night Friday and Scotty the bass man picked up a new bass, which sounded fantastic.  He's a great guy and can run with the best.  Toured with Foghat and several other groups back in the day.  He's good and I mean good.  Zero tone controls with only a kill switch on it.  Funny watching him go but what a great sound.  We were laffin our rears off discussing my 75th Bday bash in a couple years.  It's in the early planning stages right now.  Hope I'm around to pull it off.  😂.

 

Wait, did I just fire up another pot of coffee?  lolol

:lol: Bullya! 

You've got a chronic, acute case of it man, not a relapse! 

Second pot? Not me, must have passed a stone a couple days ago `cause I know I don't have the clap!

 

Just the 24 oz today (almost two cups) then cranberry juice and water since to negate it.

Talk to us @grasshopper 

 

did you see the price on them?...$375

And they will easily fit in the little car, w/o breathing hard... especially after squeezing those LS in it. Convincing the wife I need them... that may be a bigger trick than getting the LS in the car. That and finding a place in the house to set them. This house is only ~900sq/ft and housing the LS  The RP600Ms are in a room [building] of 140sq/ft. 

 

TBH

I'm quite happy with the gear I have. The price is what I found so attractive on the Fortes

Yes, but no pics. & I thought you were going to upgrade your "Fort". I think if you go there willingly it ceases to be the doghouse!

If you had gone that way you could get the spl of the LS in the house maybe.

 

I get it! & the better half can be challenging at times!

My pc now is almost as good a sound as a regular stereo now... so I'm in remission now!

the "doghouse" was called that before I set up shop in it. There was an old lady living in there when we bought the place. She went by the name Coyote....

I go out there to listen to music when the wife is home. She sez I can listen to music in the house. My response is always "No, I can't".

I typically listen "at volume"...
