  1. 2 channel and surround sounds are completely different animals in my book (and i don;t know much about surround, I have a sound bar and a woofer connected to my tv and thats as far as i care to go with movies) - it rumbles and the choppers sound scary enough in apocolypse now. in terms of THD, component matching is the key, properly driving the speaker with that first watt of power will get you far.
  2. I love my KG 4's I have had them for 30 years, redid the crossovers last year and they continue to sing. And if you need them to they will flat out knock the plaster off the walls. I still use my reel to reel all the time, the only thing new I have is a Music Hall TT and only because my 50 year old Miracord 50h met an inglorious end thanks to an indoor football game with my boys and their friends (not authorized). Even the cabinets are old, they are mid 60's lane record cabinets matching but found about 2 years apart on craigslist. The pioneer is an sx750 upper mid range from aroun
  3. Do you fuckers sail, in all my years on SA I never looked at these sections. What a wankerfest. I feel sorry for your wives, girlfriends and dogs. If ya even have one. BWAHAHHAHAHHAHA. goddamn, it takes all types i guess.
  4. Sailing, at least on the Chesapeake can be deadly boring in the summer. I invited friends (a few days in advance cuz everyones busy), and occasionally we would hit that great day with 12-15 knots and just having a ball actually going places. More likely fluky 5 knots barely pushing my 4ksb. Sure we drank and talked and had fun but it was 5 knots in a 4ksb. People were happy to go but happier they didn't own a boat. I ticked it off my list, learned to sail in 14, bought a boat in 15, beer canned it 16 and 17 and 18 and sold it. It was fun, but I'm done. glad I did it, i learned a
  5. Rimas has tackled the entirety of the Pacific, we need him over here to now show the atlantic who's boss. ima start looking for a boat.
  6. The thing i thought was interesting is that the article said he was a safety first kind of guy, but got fired for refusing to run a vessel down the Chesapeake with faulty steering, he then got fired, and the article intimates that perhaps he was less inclined to act on his old natural instincts of his past. He evidently had to work his way back up to captain. Did that past experience change his tolerance for conservatism is what the article briefly posits.
  7. Jim thinks Rimas is a dim wit, that post was pretty funny. almost makes me want to join facade book.
  8. On behalf of all of us here at SA, Rimas, we apologize for ever doubting you.
  9. Give it a rest. Rimas was of his own mind. Jim, was tongue in cheek doofus.
  10. One of these is for sale in Wisconsin right now on ebay. 15k
  11. Too early for the dead pool? Too late to take out a policy?
  12. Rimas occupies the lowest rung on Maslows theorum
  13. Rimas: an abridged history: HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - During the three days before he was rescued off the Big Island on Tuesday, sailor Rimas Meleshyus could think of little else than how hungry he was. "You dream about food, you dream about water," the 64-year-old said. "You cannot imagine no food no water." Meleshyus made a distress call to the Coast Guard some 11 miles to the northeast of the Big Island. First responders arrived, picked him up, and towed him in. It's not a surprise, though, that the Russian ex-patriot ran out of food so far from shore. He had set
  14. Any thoughts on the other end of the cord. I just bought a Yamaha THR practice amp, the sound is absolutely amazing, big amp tones at super low volume, its the size of a loaf of bread, it gets plenty loud too for living room jams with a couple of guys. Its really a sweet little practice amp.
  15. i asked him if he was stalling and losing his nerve and he booted me from F.B. meh.
  16. he also appears tp have about 5000 Olives and Maraschino cherries in giant glass jars on board, so beyond the buttery Idahoans, the man must like his classic cocktails.
  17. Someone just gave him a boat. He's back in business. He leaves in the morning.
