  1. No problems with Amazon or with the vendors there. Not a one.
  2. Reptiles make me laugh, they're always up to something weird. I'll have to take some pictures of the preamps , they look like boxes with knobs on them. One of them has tubes sticking out of the top.
  3. I don't get much company, I don't understand it? That big Burmese isn't mine but I wish it was. This old girl is full of little ones, I think.
  4. This made me laugh, I found this thread and thought this looks interesting and I started it years ago. All of the PJ Harvey titles have been rereleased and all of the Zappa remasters are really good.
  5. Glad to hear that 4000t is still going strong. I had that for a bit using 4 Magnepan MMGs and then got a wild hair up my ass to get a Sunfire tube preamp used with a Barcus Berry Sonic Maximizer which worked really well. I wish that python would stop dragging me around, I'm on blood thinners and bleed like a stuck pig.
  6. Yes, the 20.7s were just too big. What I didn't realize was that the panel starts about 18" off of the floor so to get far enough back I'd have to either sit in the kitchen or get up in the air on a barstool. There was also way too much bass for the area. As Wendall put it, a trombone in a phone booth. Let me know about Capital Audiofest, I'd like to hit that. I purposely avoided the 30.7 tour, why torture yourself? I did my best to try and get Magnepan to make a smaller version of the 20.7 but they weren't interested in doing a $10,000 speaker. Last I
  7. Here's the upstairs which sounds really good, everything is sized just right. You don't have the ribbons with the 1.7s so you lose some resolution but you can't have everything. The SVS passive sub was listed here under Found Deals many years ago and it came with two little wall mount Magnepans which I hung up but never plugged into anything. Why, who knows. That sub really did the trick.
  8. I tried 20.7s in the living room but they were just too big but here's a shot from when I had them. The sound quality was just amazing but I needed another 6' in width and depth so off they went. If you've got the room for them, though, do it. You will have the sound of a live performance at your fingertips. I acutally found myself wondering how much it would cost to expand the house, ha, ha. I probably didn't express myself clearly; when I say a live performance I don't just mean volume. It's close your eyes and it sounds like the performers are actually standing
  9. Here we have the downstairs and a visit from my mother-in-law...
  10. I posted risque photos? I recall there was a best looking woman thread years ago but then it just kind of wound up being The Drunken Women Of Wal-Mart before it was finally killed off for just being too stupid for words. That was around the same time they had guess this component's guts and Kevin always won because he found some program to cheat with. Let me poke around this site some and see what's here. Just for the fun of it, here's probably my final guitar purchase (maybe), a 2008 Gibson ES-345. No, the house isn't sloping, I just can't manage to ever take a straig
  11. Thank you, I'll try to be active here. I don't know what I can bring to the table other than background noise. It's been mostly motorcycles and Gibson guitars (like crazy) recently but I AM putting together a new midget stereo system so that might be of interest to the members here. I haven't upgraded stuff in a very long time so this will be an adventure. New speakers, amps, preamp, probably a BluRay player and sub. Nothing really exotic but things have really come a long way over the years. It seems like you don't have to spend a fortune to get really good sound (I'm hoping
  12. I am getting up there in years... Just ask my wife, she'll be happy to tell you.
  13. See, it's not just newbies who smell bad so take heart. Balok recently wrote me to tell me that BluesPower had passed away so I wanted to drop in and offer my condolances. I'm not 100% sure but I think I sold him a Sonic Frontiers preamp that blew up his speakers many years and he was happy to return it to me in exchange for a big box of CDs. I still have that preamp here in constant use, I forgot to tell him the shut down sequence so that surprised both him and his girlfriend with the fireworks... I tried to log in but saw I was Retired so figured I must have gotten
  14. No problems opening that pdf - thanks for offering to scan the contents of that cabinet.
  15. Buy this, you won't be disappointed. http://www.amazon.com/Live-Tokyo-1999-Jeff-Beck/dp/B0097Z3KPQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1415727650&sr=8-1&keywords=jeff+beck+live+in+tokyo+vinyl
