I struggle with everything, but I'd like to be able to play classical decent enough where people don't start running. I am however having a lot of fun with Eastern European folk music (Romanian, Polish), it's based heavily on violin and they have some amazing songs, not to mention players.

Maybe Joshua Bell or Marc O'Connor are free and could give you lessons. smile.gif

Any news on the system? How's it sounding these days?

Hey Charles, good to hear from you! How is everything on the East Coast?

LOL, I'm sure Mr. O'Connor's only priority is not to forget our scheduled Tue evening lesson appointments...

Not much happening here, the only change is the addition of a couple of JL Audio F112 Fathom subwoofers. After much deliberation, I chose them over a few others that I was considering. Never looked back, these babies have everything, the build quality is amazing and so is the sound. I might get a third one, they're so good...

Here is a picture... Click to enlarge.

Most folks are focused, I think, on Sandy's potential arrival. This is a different animal than Irene last year. I stocked up on water and extra batteries just in case.

I think your setup looks very good. And I like that you're not afraid to use a stand that's not as wide as the TV. In some setups that can look awkward, but with your arrangement it's a non-issue. I think I'm going to try that here and see if I like it better than what I have now. Your display stands out more, I think, not being on a rack of equal or greater width. And at 60" it's a beast to begin with.

Thanks gentlemen, I appreciate the kind words! I'm back after a long break, so I'll be visiting your threads shortly to chat about things...

Charles, my thoughts are with you and everyone else in the path of that storm. Hopefully it'll pass without any damages...

Thanks. The wind gusts are becoming more frequent, but no heavy rain or significant sustained winds as yet.

LOL, It will be a while until I can reach Wabo status... One cannot chase Wabo because one cannot catch Wabo... (Y'all hear the grasshopper?) It's his world, we're just living in it! Right about now, I am like the "Spear carrier 1" extras they list in movie credits, where they don't even get their names displayed, haha...

Hope all is well with you, Al... Tell Mrs. HTG the quilts look AMAZING, and I'd like to thank you again for helping me with the many subwoofer questions I've had in the past. Word goes you've got at least one new toy, I'll go over to the HTG thread to check it out. Peace.

No, you CAN chase him. Whether you can catch him is another story. Or whether you should for that matter. There is only one Waboman. biggrin.gif

Wabo's easy to catch. You'll find him in a van down by the river. Between you and HTG, you need a scorecard to keep up with all the new purchases. I get tired just thinking about it.

Don't let that guy Wabo shake you down. Looking over your wonderful system Wabo got nothing on him pertaining to class. tongue.gif Cause that is one classy looking mancave. I'm self inviting myself over if I ever get a chance to be in your area. biggrin.gif I believe Wabo has already banned me from his place. The wife is still making great looking quilts. I will let her know what you said.

It must have been crazy busy at work for you. Hopefully things are returning to normal and you can catch your breath. You've earned it.

Not sure how to reply to this. Nobody's getting shook down. I don't understand that at all. This has never been a competition. Also, not sure where you're going with this HTG, but I've nothing but high praise and accolades for the dd's setup.

I was kidding around and it did not come out the way I meant. I was interrupted by work and hit send before I was able to review what I wrote. Sorry about that.

It's probably not in the long run, but I'd like to think it's over short-term. wink.gif Going back Tuesday, I'll see if the TV I picked for the shop is set up. Knowing those guys, not properly. smile.gif How come I'm the TV guru there?

Actually, where improvements can be made in one's system realistically and without going into debt it's good. Everyone here has a good system. And as for ddgtr, no one else has a violin in their setup! A nice touch.

Hi Frank! No, I am not a musician. Since I was about 10 I always wanted to play the violin. I should have followed the call, but the boys I was hanging out at the time with thought that was lame, so you know how that goes... Michael Jackson was the hot thing, disco music was in and so forth. No place for violin, right? Have always thought about it, but last year I decided to do it. So I challenged myself to learn as much as I can without a teacher, I'm the kind of person that works harder if I'm not handed things. I'm having TONS of fun, it's been great. I'm about ready to take it to the next level and seek help from a teacher. Part of the reason why I haven't renewed my LIVE membership...

So I challenged myself to learn as much as I can without a teacher, I'm the kind of person that works harder if I'm not handed things. I'm having TONS of fun, it's been great. I'm about ready to take it to the next level and seek help from a teacher. Part of the reason why I haven't renewed my LIVE membership...

Its good to see that your taking it to the next level. I used to play Bass 20 years ago, occasionally I pick it up when I go to a family friends house but I wouldnt put me in a band. biggrin.gif
