That's just funny!  Tom is getting them, so you know he's real because you met him at Hope.

In photography circles we call this GAS: Gear Acquisition Syndrome.

.... the only problem I see here is that some of you need to invest in a wide angle lens!

 

Brings me to an idea: there should be a thread here at Klipsch Forum titled: "A 360° of my listening room". Would be really cool. Most smartphones can do this, nowadays.

Buying was the easy part, selling them after they were in my possession was tough...

Same here, acquiring was much easier than selling. Partly because of my difficulty letting go, and the rest was waiting for a sincere buyer.

=== I’ve been well past twelve steps for some time graduating to an escalator. My wife has been all too accepting of the habit with the occasional eye roll or “what are you going to sell”. So now with Jubes and LS, plus a few others, it’s difficult to say I’m buying new speakers. As luck would have it our son called and asked if we wanted to go look at some Klipsch gear when I said funny you called, that I had just sent a message to a Forum member about buying speakers. She looks up - “buying speakers”? Sometimes timing is everything, didn’t even get an eye roll.

This pic was taken before my wife said, "Why have all this sitting down here? Set up some more systems around the house."

She's awesome.

We have to meet her, she sounds perfect. :emotion-21:

That picture gave me a headache.

And did you buy said speakers?

I have a modified two step process:

 

1. Realize I have a problem

2. Come on this forum and decide I must be just fine.

Done

One rule I had that I broke this year twice:

Always sell a piece  before buying the replacement.

A collector of things years ago told me you need three things to collect:

Money to purchase, space to store and the ability to sneak it past your spouse.

 

My wife is pretty good about my hobby and once my father-in-law came to my defense by telling her

"At least he's not down at the tappy!"

2018 was a big step for me, I actually SOLD some equipment, a Yamaha CR-820 receiver and a pair of Klipsch WB-14 speakers. I had always loved that Yamaha CR series, thinking it was among the best looking of the monster receiver era. The WB-14 were just real sharp bookshelf speakers that over delivered, (as usual with Klipsch.) Well 2 months later I haven't bought anything else and I am fine parting with the gear.....

 

 

 Really, I am OK with it..............

Hey, now you have room to buy a new Yamaha receiver!  The new RX-A Aventage Series receivers are miles ahead of the old gear.  They sound much better, and don't cost all that much more.

My program is based on a five year basis, like what expensive thing I could buy and be disappointed by it's performance?
