What I Got Today!

Recommended Posts

Good choice A1UC, I love my Kubota, it's smaller than yours but perfect for what I need. They are really durable and never seem to have a problem, mine is 9 years old with 988 hours and does everything like if it were new.

The front end loader is invaluable, quick disconnect bucket and fork attachment is really handy, finishing mower and bionic blade for grading is everything I need to get alot done easily.

Center channel un-boxing ..............IMG_7332.jpg

....grill is pre-attached much like the 280F's were, with foam sheet between...IMG_7334.jpg

 

I love the interesting multi-bevel baffle on this speaker, you really don't see it in the Klipsch promo photos the way it looks sitting in front of you....IMG_7335.jpg

Yes, it has the Tractrix port on the back like the rest of the RP line....IMG_7336.jpg

Nice score Gary. It's always fun opening up fresh boxes:D

 

I bought a Klipsch center speaker last year that came with white gloves.

I really like that design, it's like 2 speakers in one. Good looking set, that center channel face is cool looking. :emotion-21:

Nobody said another model can't be better than a Reference.

Thanks for all the compliments my friends ^_^

 

Well, I look at it way, you have the vintage style reference (if you want to use that term) and then there is the current Reference Premier line of products with their very own lineage and well engineered design...   Owning both is a pleasure, they sound different, but I like them both too..     Like my avatar says................'together'  ;)

 

It is like what organists are going through when it comes to Hammond Organs...........you have the vintage electro mechanical, and you have the natural progression of the newest Hammond organs being digital...   I can't tell one from another anymore as far as sound, but, there are the two camps.....    Digital is SO much lighter and easier on ones back and you still get that great sound and adjustability of all the nuances heard in the electro-mechanical organ of old.....

 

Ok, moving on..............next, some photos of the other updated new gear.......   Hang around :lol:...

Never quite understood what the word meant as far as speakers went anyway, reference as to what an average good speaker should sound like ?

You're probably right, but there is nothing cooler than watching someone like Billy Preston setting behind a old hammond organ. Like on the Eric Clapton's DVD One More Car one more Rider one of his last big performances.

 

Enjoy the new HT.

Elden, I LOVE that concert, and I bought that back when it was a 2 dvd + CD set (early pressing) in a Jewel case!  Billy is cleary having so much fun and the crowd goes wild during one of his solos AND when David Sanchez took over the Hammond 'sound' so Billy could go out and dance....  Very fun and clever at the same time...

 

Now, the thing is, Hammond is STILL making that organ console.  The B3 and C3 (Keith Emerson's organ) are very much alive and you can't tell them apart from the vintage model...   It is just that they are 2 pounds LIGHTER! 

 

Ok, dinner on deck this very nice evening..............more later....
