Why didn't they go for 2 after they scored with 12 seconds left!?! They score 2, they win the game!

They do not look like a playoff caliber team.

They just don't understand. I know if I had the resources, I would be all over the Triple P!

Anyway, it was a joy watching post after post submitted to your thread. and I'm sure many more will come.

Regards,

Hi ld.

Holy moly, did you ever open a can with the Triple P post. It's still going. Wow!

Yeah, it is a pretty fun site. Yes, they sure did show me a lot of love. That was pretty cool and very humbling. However, the love is starting to leave over the power conditioners debate.

I dunno...

Hello Jeff.

That's one of the reasons why I prefer the WYSC section of the forum. I've said it before and it holds true. IMO, this thread is a celebration of what we have and/or will accomplish with our A/V setups. Yes, a debate occurs ever so often, but for the most part, it's where you can get encouragement, positive reinforcement, constructive critiquing, and ideas of how you can improve on what you have. It's also a fun way of measuring what you have to what others have without the negativity, sans not posting photos when you list your equipment! (Some of the guys have a fit when photos aren't posted!) Not to mention the photos of the setups. Thread can also be a vehicle for humility. Why? Just when you think you've got this stuff figured out, some one starts a thread and posts photos of their system that makes you realize, there's better out there, or there's more that you can do with your system and/or room. I know there have been times when I had delusions of grandeur, thinking there was nothing else I could possibly do to my system! That was 3 years ago. 20 modifications later, here I am!

Ok, I'm finished!

Hi ld.

The storm has subsided and things have calmed down over there. What a fun, wild ride. There's been quite a few AVSers signing up. In fact, it was really cool to see ohyeah32 start his thread. Now we just need Franin to get his pics set up in the gallery.

Lol. The upgrade bug just keeps biting! Speaking of, has your new amp arrived.

I grew up rockin' out to these guys. In fact, they were my first concert back in 1979. What happened?

I don't have the money to get a PPP, but the Audio Advisor video is enjoyable. I'd likely get one in different circumstances. As is, the only potential upgrade I'd make now is my amplification, and that's not an essential one.

No worries. Here's wishing you a very happy new year filled with new amplifiers.

Hey Jeff,

Do you think we've galavanted enough over at Blu-ray?! Dude, you have well over 200 entries in just 3 days! I've created a monster!

It's nice to see the positive response to your thread. Well deserved indeed!

Hi ld.

It's nice to be appreciated. Though not sure if all the accolades are deserving. I can't believe how fast it moves over at bluray. It's mind numbing. I blink and four pages have gone by.

Thanks again, ld for all your support!

Same to you. The Happy New Year part, that is. You've got the amps already, big time. My amplifier short list so far:

Emotiva XPA-1 monos
B&K 200.1 Reference monos
Cambridge Audio 840W stereo amp (2)
Odyssey Stratus monos

Emotiva's HQ isn't too far from Nashville, where I'll likely be headed for the holidays this year. Maybe a trip can be arranged, and if I can get past the size and weight of the XPA-1s to buy them, my setup will almost begin to resemble yours (not really).

Nice list of amps. I've heard really good things about the Emo's. Let us know if you make it to Emo HQ. I think that is a great idea. IMO, the XPA-1's will be right at home in the prepress HT!

I'm thinking of doing a cable upgrade over time. Starting with my speaker cables. I'm currently using the "higher" end Monster cables. I'd like to replace them with Wireworld Eclipse 6 speaker cables. It's been quite awhile since I've looked at cables... they ain't cheap! I guess I've been spoiled with Blue Jeans and Monoprice.

I know cable discussions can degrade faster than a signal thru a Bose system. Just wondering what cables other members are using.

For speakers, I have Kimber 8TC; interconnects are a combo of Kimber Hero and Audioquest King Cobra and Black Mamba II. No complaints.

My new Wireworld Silver Eclipse speaker cables arrived today. This concludes phase one in my plan to completely upgrade all my cables. They ain't cheap. So I plan on doing a little at a time. Up next is a single Silver Eclipse for my center channel.

Thanks Double B. Phase 2 has covertly been given the green light. We need black ops to evade the enemy, the Mrs. If she knew what I spent on these cables, she would have me committed and have the key melted down. Send in the HT ninjas.
