  1. Bill D was a good guy, always really helpful and never a bad word about anyone.
  2. I was so impressed I ordered a set of the Ascension 3s for the 3.7s this morning. He said it's a 9 - 12 week time span from deposit to shipment, they raise them up 2" so you were close. Already got the Kimbers kovered, all 3 systems have 12TC speaker cables. That's as high up the ladder as I'll ever go. While I think of it, their inexpensive PBJ interconnects are supposed to be really good. When I need some more that's what I'll go with.
  3. Happy 66th and wishing you many more.
  4. Happy Birthday ya snot nosed punk!

    Here's wishing you many more.

      Does (H + A + 2 (P) + Y) + (B + I +R + T + H + D + A +Y)  =  Euclid's Fifth Postulate?


      I'm sure it doesn't, but it does equal your "Special Day".


      Happy Birthday !!




  5. Speaker cables are Kimber 12TC and I went with some Magnariser Mk 7 Multirisers which really firm up the sound. It's a lot more than just getting them up in the air, they somehow do a lot more than the stock junky feet they send you. I will buy some for the 1.7s and 3.7s, they're worth doing. And most importantly, here's where I sit my fat hairy butt. And here's what faces me. Actually, the cabinet doors are most of the way shut but you get the idea. The sound from this little system is really, really good
  6. To keep the room from being so "live" I got raped by Home Depot over the cost of some shelving materials and decided to furnish it with some of my fedora collection (and bowlers and homburgs and top hats). Everything but the fez. I tried all sorts of different combinations of gear but what I wound up with is an REL T1 subwoofer, BarryG/WRF Carverfest 275, a deHavilland UltraVerve 3 preamp and a Rega Apollo-R cd player.
  7. By underwhelming demand, here's the spare bedroom system. It was kind of an expensive undertaking as all I wanted to do was replace some crappy Magnepan MMGs to listen to football games and the news and the occasional CD or movie. The LRS speakers showed up and I really had to rethink things as they're MUCH better than what I thought they would be. I had them next to some 1.7s while I was testing stuff out and I thought the sound was coming from the 1.7s. Nope, it's the LRS speakers, the little weasels. I had a spare bedroom which the wife turned into a long-term dog urinal

    Get Back

    The first episode is kind of slow, second is a little different and the third one is really good. They really perked up when Billy Preston arrived. I don't know if they would have had much of an album without him spurring them on.
  9. It can't be his birthday already, he just had one last year. How many presents can a guy stand to get? Happy Birthday and New Year, anyway!

    Get Back

    Last day of the year, last day of my one month Disney+ subscription so I watched Get Back again. When those guys were "on" they were just magic. Thanks for all of the great music, Fabs!
  11. An almost Christmas baby - Happy 23rd!!!
  12. Bigger house, better climate, Magnepan 20.7s, new VTL amps, Rega Isis Valve, Ortofon Cadenza Black, Ortofon SUT... I can rationalize it all by being able to sell off the subwoofers, I won't need them.
  13. Please, I'm trying to get OFF the upgrade wagon and get back to being a normal person (although that's probably not possible). Yes, I believe that is for streaming capabilities. I flipped through the manual real fast, there's a bunch of different settings for tailoring the sound. This thing is so new the batteries for the remote are still in their sealed plastic wrapper so I just left it the way it shipped and will worry about the filters probably never.
  14. Then there's the Isis and the Isis Valve but they're above my pay grade and would probably outclass the rest of the stuff.
