  1. Welcome Peter! Nice setup, and at a great bargain, on top! There are lots of folks here who can, and will happily help you with the modding (myself excepted - I'd happily help, but you wouldn't be happy with it. ). It sounds like you are quite capable when it comes to working on the gear, so yo will find plenty of kindred spirits, among he people, here. 🙂 I the mean time, enjoy the music, and let us know what you listen to. 🎼
  2. Thanks for all the kind words - they are very much appreciated. There have certainly been a few threads of late that I've been on the edge of derailing (and likely the wrong edge), so I did feel an apology was warranted. Ha, part of me was afraid of that. 😃 I guess that tells me what I'm like, here, normally, eh? I'd make for a pretty lousy Morman, I'm afraid, especially since they've given up multiple wives (on second thought, that's really a form of self punishment). Yes, as I gave away, above, I am Canadian, but not adverse, or perhaps immune, to being a PITA - we all must have our talents. I'm still going to be spending most evenings at the hospital for the foreseeable future, but it's much easier now that she's doing better. Best wishes to all of you - take care of yourselves and your families. 😃
  3. Hi Folks, I just wanted to send out a very big Thank You to everyone for your patience with all my off-the-wall messages and commentaries over the past couple of weeks or so. I have no doubt I've caused more than a few of you to shake your heads and "not again!" I've spent most of the last couple of weeks being with my wife in the hospital, in ICU, and I've basically used C! as a way to try and keep what shreds of my sanity are left, herded mostly together. That's meant I haven't always thought through some of my rejoiners, comments, or responses, not to mention having been a veritable pest at the best of times (though I'm not sure that's any different than normal?). After a real roller-coaster, of one serious issue after another, over the past couple of weeks, Betty is now starting to come around, and start to be coherent, again. I'm hoping to see her moved back out of ICU, to a "normal" hospital a room, shortly. It's still going to be a while before she's likely to come home, but the light at the end of the tunnel is no longer accompanied by a train whistle. I'll try to exercise a bit of restraint, going forward, but Thank You, all, again for your patience and indugling me through all this - you have actually helped more than you can probably imagine.
  4. @#$%! That just makes it all the more insane. It looks like the car may be in there upside down. I wonder if he hit the curb and flipped up and over endwise going into the house upside down and backwards. Helluva way to go - at least nobody else got hurt.
  5. I have a recorded/digitized copy of the contents, but I've never had the chance to try setting up y system using it. My room is not suited to that sort of setup, so it would likely be an exercise n frustration for me. I know others, here certainly have gone through the full-tilt setup, some with great success, others not as much. In my case, I seem to ear the SH fill the room with sound (versus off) without aiming for perfection - maybe I'm not hearing 100% of the effect, but to me it's wonderful. If you give it a try, let us know your results.
  6. In the same vein as some of the other electronics repair ones, rather than purely audio , I know that X-ray Tony B has been a favorite of a number of us, here. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=x+ray+tony+b+&app=desktop&persist_app=1 A big thank you to all, here, for some really great ideas that I'm going to have to check out. 😁
  7. Perfect timing, Charlie! I was about to go looking for one. Thanks!
  8. Way too close to escape velocity, for the sake of safety or common sense. And the Darwin Award goes to...
  9. I agree with the "Beautiful system " comment. As to the temperature, I don't see a freaking minus sign in front of that number. What? Too hot to go golfing. 😉
  10. Congrats on the Maggie's, @Lance! Glad you're getting the C1 and M500t reworked. 😀 It's a shame so many bands just focus on the loud rather than the good sound. Far too many soundmen just don't get it and can't do a decent job as a result. When they do, the results are fantastic. Big Sugar should have been a great show - sorry it got blown out.
  11. Great - it's good to have someone filling the gap between the West coasters, and those of us, more mid-country (I'm just East of Toronto). Not much, from the East Coast, at least among active participants, right now.
  12. Welcome, @Chris Della Mattia! Nice setups, indeed! I can imagine that the only way to reasonably get those Amazing Silvers, up, North of the '49th, would have been an epic roadtrip, and I suspect they would not have appreciated the trek. I'll second @DrummerJuice's question, as to where in this snow buried, frigid land are you (and Owen, you can go do something rude with your weather out there - I had to dig out my snowblower, today!)?
  13. Happy Birthday @67bird, @Kjohn1234, and @MLB111! Hopefully you will all sped the week celebrating another happy spin around our favorite star!
  14. Move over Greatful Dead, there's a Wall of Sound to take the crown. 😮 What's scary is that's only one of each, not pairs.
