True, but eventually something has to clip if you are going crazy with the volume right? When pushing the limits one of 3 things happens.

1. You clip an amp.
2. You damage a speaker/sub.
3. Your ears give out first.

Ahhhh you must be referring to #3 !

I had a local guy offer me his fairly new 212's's for 1000$ for both today but needed the money within an hour, I had my kid and bank is closed, can't take that much out of an ATM etc (guy is old and doesn't have any electronic banking at all) blah! I phoned a friend and he went and picked them up for his HT, damn they were in perfect shape too!

As much as I wish I could have jumped on that, I did just spend almost 3K to upgrade me gaiming PC will all the best new x99 stuff yesterday, I think another 1K would have had the wife start a internal investigation LOL

What a crazy deal though! And if Jay is reading this, you're welcome you luck SOB hahahah!

@carp how was the Nebraska game yesterday on the 215's?

A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free.

Changing the subject here as I often do. I got a hell of a deal on a tv today. I'd been looking for something to replace our 42 inch lcd upstairs and it looked like to get a good non smart led lcd you had to spend around 700 for a 55 inch.

Well, I recently found a deal on slick deals for 499 for a 55 inch lg lcd 2013 model at microcenter. It was one of those things were microcenter doesn't advertise that price but if you click on email me the price the email shows 499. So I called microcenter today and of course they sold out in less than a week after offering 499.

I went to Nebraska Furniture Mart and they didn't have the 2013 model anymore so no go. I then went to walmart and sure enough they still had the 2013 model but for 599 instead of 499. I asked a worker if they could price match and he said only if it's a printed add from another local store.

So, I went up to the electronics counter and figured I'd ask there too. I asked and the girl said the same thing about how it has to be a printed add but she sounded unsure of her self. I told her I had the email from microcenter that showed the price and while I was showing it to her on my phone a lady in line behind me came over and quickly and confidently said, "oh yeah, I've done that all the time walmart always matches those emails". The young girl was already flustered and quickly said, "ok, yes we can match that". The lady in line gave me a big wink. The worker called a manager over to authorize the sale. I figured he would call bs but he looked all jaded and uncaring and quickly typed in what needed to be done and left.

So, I got the 2014 tv for 499. The kicker is when I got home I realized that it wasn't the 2013 model that was on display in the store and the one that microcenter put on clearance for 499, instead it was the new 2014 model (the girl had to go the back to get the tv there weren't any boxes left by the displays).

I just checked online and the cheapest I can find the 2014 model is 679 on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/LG-Electronics.../dp/B00KVLT08G





I feel a bit guilty since it wasn't legit but oh well. The tv looks awesome, the picture quality destroys the LG 42" we had before. That one will be going on our screened in porch.
Nice! We are thinking of putting our 50" Panasonic ST model plasma in the bedroom. I like the tall stands that have wheels so I can just roll it from the wall by the footboard up to the footboard. Kick back on a day off or late night movie time. But I have also thought about selling it. Plasmas are not being made anymore so I really don't want to. The picture quality is amazing with a 5.5 million to 1 contrast ratio and the blacks are so deep you can't hardly see letterbox bars unless you look hard. If we got rid of it the Ben Q W7000's picture would "seem" better as time goes on. But keeping and watching a bedroom movie every now and then would remind me about the contrast and black level differences. Perhaps I should sell it and get an edge lit lcd so it would make the PJ seem not so bad when it comes to black levels. But it is probably an honest 450 to 500 resale value. I haven't looked...but the prices of the new ones left have skyrocketed with plasmas not being made anymore. Best picture made so far for sure. anyway it's a dilemma

Yeah the blacks on plasmas are great but the reflections in well lit rooms seems to be a lot worse so it's all trade-offs.

I really like the 215RM and Coach was running his full range. I don't have a big room and I have a strong sub system so the 215RM is my favorite JTR speaker. If you had a bigger room, not as many subs, and listen to lots of music, then the 215RT would likely be the preferred speaker of the two.

Wow, I would think you would have liked that move. We are a big Penn State family. My Father in law has been a season ticket holder for over 35 years. We get up to a game or two a year. Off to a good start.

Am I reading this right? Seems redundant? Did you mean to say the 212HT is your favorite JTR speaker?

If he let go the 212's for a "g". Then maybe a Frankie for the pair of S8. Then I'll definately throw up.. Lol.. And N8, lmk if you decide to pass on those S8 if he really does sell them. They could be a Atmos potential for me. Lol..

dgage.. Am I reading this right coming from you? About having a bigger room, not as many subs? Wow! What's up bro? Getting soft on us now? This is what you would normally say... If you had a bigger room, with lots of subs (DIY subs preferred), and listen to lots of music. But still need more boom? Then 215RT would likely be the preferred speaker of the two.. There, that's the dgage we know around here.. Lol.. You want me to write what N8 would say? Easy! N8- " Aw sh!t! Not enough bass yet!! " lol
