That's the beauty of a CNC router, they never complain about what they have to cut!...lol

Here is the bracing revision. (this only shows two of the three braces...there are three, 120 degree apart)

That's really amazing, even the internal bracing is finished like the outside cabinet Hey Tom since the new revised Triax is lighter will the cost also be lighter on the pocket book?
Cheers Jeff

I like the heavy previous version of Triax more. With more than 100kg weight, i can place the Triax outside and no one can steal it ! )

Wouldn't that be something. Or how about using this clever bracing to make a ported sub in the Prism line?

The more I look at the grills the more they grow on me anyway. Is the PSA logo permanently attached to the new grills or is it similar to the stickers you guys have been sending out?
Same sticker, pretty easy to peel off.

Pretty spot-on post by Seth Godin today...

Of course, the result isn't the point. The mileage or the ranking or slightly more alabaster or ebony [@neutro notes: or more extension or output] isn't the point. The point is the longing.

Desire can't be sated, because if it is, the longing disappears and then we've failed, because desire is the state we seek.

(...)

The worst thing of all would be if we actually arrived at perfect, because if we did, we would extinguish the very thing that drives us.

We want the wanting.

First 10 in the video play list on today,

1)thunderstruck --- Steve and Seagulls
2)Thieves --- Ministry (live)
3)Pontoon---little big town (video gets it right,.let's just retire on a boat)
4)Heart Shaped Box ---Nirvana
5)I wanna be your dog---Iggy and the stooges
6)When the Levee Breaks---Zep
7)Its like that---run DMC(live)
8)Bulls on Parade---rage
9)Cream---Sunshine(live)
10)Metallica---harvester

Really though I can listen to almost anything if I feel it was made with passion. Doubly so if I can tie the music into some event or film. Bach Toccata/Fugue...I'll never hear that without immediately visualizing the opening sequence for Rollarball.

No argument from me...lol. I'm a huge LZ...fan....some Rush fans or Palmer, Baker & Moon fans may disagree...at least stating who is the GOAT drummer ...is not as contentious as say subwoofers...lol.

Btw...my current favorite drummer is Lars Ulrich...seen them a few times in concert...if you like Metallica check out Through the Never...video or BRD....talk about combining music with a story unfolding ...I thought it was really good. The uncompressed BRD SQ alone was amazing very clean tight bass...worthwhile..if you like that!

Yeah...Neil Peart is so technically sound he has no equal and writes most of material for Rush...doh... I forgot to mention "Tools" Danny Carey.

I listen to wide variety of music but classic, hard & progressive R&R...are my preferred sources...I never really get tired of classic rock.

Classic is the key word my friend, after the 70's, music for me was non existent
