LOL, never! I laugh at people who do that crap! I call it the Clown Syndrome and anyone that lets their wife do that is fricking crazy. Botox is a toxin and injecting that crap into you is borderline insane. Your better off trading in for a new model than letting that happen, like speakers! LOL jk!

Look at Bruce Jenner. One of the most celebrated athletes in the last 50 years, yet he still tries turning back the clock. He looks like sheet with all his plastic surgeries. There is no way around aging.

Luckily, I have genes working on my side. My father is 88 and my mother is 82. Neither one looks their age.
I'm 61 going on 39.
My one regret is some hearing loss. I guess that comes from 34 years of marriage...(what did you say honey, I didn't hear you).

All in jest,
Aaron

Aaron,

My Dad is 82, mom is turning 80 both still in good health. I am 13 years younger but need to get my ass back into shape, and this year, since I am a Ski Race Coach I am on the hill 2-3 days out of the week, which has helped me keep off the winter weight. Even with all the back issues, I will work through the pain to keep off the weight, otherwise it will get much worse. Thankfully hearing is still intact, and still drooling over the new C2s.

Borderdog,

Yes both a Chiropractor and Physical Therapist, I find that Chiropractor is a short term fix and Physical Therapy is much better in the long term. I had dry needling done which was done several times, similar to Acupuncture. Most of my back issues where done from playing hockey in college and then jumping off huge cliffs while skiing in the back country of CO back when I was hell raiser and top it off with a lady you hit me head on because she passed out from a seizure while driving on the freeway. I can still walk/run but its not comfortable so now I walk and bike,/swim and listen to more music and relax......

I don't know about you all but I remember growing up with my dad (now 65) having an impressive stereo system with seemingly gobs of endless power to drive his KLH Super Column speakers. About a decade ago, he switched out the amp with a modern multichannel receiver and the former has been sitting on a shelf. In the meantime I have taken an interest in HiFi so during my latest visit 'home' I decided to take a closer look at it. Come to find out it is one of the top vintage integrated amps (according to eBay): the Pioneer SA-9500 MkII.



Talk about a thing of beauty!

I wonder if it can drive my Dyns? The speaker plugs are those old bi-wire-clamp kind.

They don't make them like they use to.

Edit: He still has the original sales receipt dated 1 September 1978. He paid $256 or about $1K in adjusted USD. I am seeing it used on eBay for $329 and $434. Haha.

Rob,

Now you're talking like a Scottish lad. Who the hell is Robert Burns? Just kidding of course.

You being Canadian, have a special affinity for liberalism and socialism.

Robert Burns: "He is regarded as a pioneer of the Romantic movement, and after his death he became a great source of inspiration to the founders of both liberalism and socialism, and a cultural icon in Scotland and among the Scottish Diaspora around the world."

Interesting, I thought those sold?

Also the ones from Canada, not sure but Aaron can answer this, I didn't know they made the Special 25s in Rosewood?

That's really cool!

I wish my dad still had some of his old gear. I remember short fat JBL speakers that rocked the house, I remember he bought one of the first cd players on the market, in 1983, it was a Sony and he used an old pioneer stereo receiver as well. If I recall it was an ugly looking thing by today's standards!

My dad (71) has been rocking this setup with AR2 speakers since long before I was around.

Those were definitely the fun years, although mine was the Pioneer SA-8100 powering some Dynaco A25s in 1973/74, transferred all my vinyl to this baby.

Hey- a bit of an informal poll/question.

As most know I ordered the Reference 1s and 4C center on November 4th. I paid all cash minus the trade-in value of my Focus 340s. I expected delivery anywhere from mid-December to end of December. As this time approached I talked to KEF and was told now end of January. I have been very patient and not a pest to my dealer or KEF.

Sent a friendly email today to my dealer as I was so busy at work to remind them this week is end of January. Speakers coming?

Reply back that my dealer is having the Head of N. America sales to call me?? Huh? I was too busy with meetings today but this can't be good. Another month? Longer? I know the center I ordered will be at least a month longer to arrive AFTER I receive the Reference 1s.

So it's been three months since I paid cash in full. I am really starting to get impatient. What if another month or longer for the Reference 1s? Two months for center? It's been three months.

Would you guys continue to be patient or start thinking about another direction? I sent the 340s in already as I was painting and carpet cleaning. Sort wanted them out of the way as I expected January delivery. I can use my Focus 110s for now but ugh.. Losing some patience. Will call dealer tomorrow and wait for KEF to call.

Wait if told another month or maybe a different direction?

I really loved these speakers but...... Three months and counting.

Rick

There has been alot of delays in every industry due to shipping and customs problems but If you really want them then wait if you're having second thoughts and want something different I would think that your dealer should be amenable to you picking a different line or brand that's in stock or not having a fulfillment issue
