    Umm... I think there's a small dragon on top of your right speaker.

    What's less fun and less safe than listening to music?

    Dave, my only beef with your comment is that it may discourage some folks from going for a bike ride in the mountains. Perhaps it is a matter of definition, but "mountain biking" has subclasses of activity, and not all require the advanced skills of the hard-core downhill adrenaline junkies who...

    What's less fun and less safe than listening to music?

    Steve, just to be sure there are a lot of ways to enjoy being on a bike in the mountains that do not involve technical skills or sphincter clenching descents. And more comfortable bikes too than the forward biased position of most mountain or road bikes. Great photo, big smiles all around...

    Can You Believe This-The Government Wants Us To Go EV but In So Doing They Will impose a gas surcharge

    I don't know what temperature is uninhabitable for humans? People live in the middle east and the deserts there get to 120 F regularly, yet they still live there! I don't think a couple degrees F is going to have them moving out anytime soon. Maybe getting a little more ornery, like me when the...

    Can You Believe This-The Government Wants Us To Go EV but In So Doing They Will impose a gas surcharge

    You almost got me to take the bait. I'll go put on another record and pour myself a nice Bordeaux. Then hug my wife and pet my cat... Of all the things there are to possibly worry about for sake of humankind, I am going to say climate hysteria is far down the list. I'm much more worried...

    Can You Believe This-The Government Wants Us To Go EV but In So Doing They Will impose a gas surcharge

    Eh, I'm a denier. I don't believe any of it. Coming ice age, over population, peak oil, ozone hole, global warming, I've been hearing some kind of global catastrophe sky-is-falling nonsense all life. Yet here we are. I choose not to live in fear, instead I choose to be happy. Life is better this...

    Can You Believe This-The Government Wants Us To Go EV but In So Doing They Will impose a gas surcharge

    I looked into solar for my house... too many tall trees around, not only my property but my neighbor's property as well. Sadly, no solar for me... but I do think Steve's idea of charging your car off of collected solar energy is 'brilliant!' Bummer for those living in the cold northern climates...

    Can You Believe This-The Government Wants Us To Go EV but In So Doing They Will impose a gas surcharge

    I'll throw a monkey in the wrench... humankind is young. Our knowledge is embryonic. The internal combustion engine is what, less than 150 years old? I'm not giving mine up anytime soon, it allows me all kinds of freedoms and allows me to accomplish huge amounts of work. Granted, battery powered...

    Dedicated audio room build thread aka The Big Dig

    I’m thinking of the movies I’ve seen where they find corpses in the walls... you’ve got the perfect place to hide your victims, and the carbon to hide the odor! Room for your friends to hide their victims too. You’re enemies should be concerned (but, you seem like a nice fellow, probably no...

    ChronsonicXVX.

    Goodness Steve, thanks for curtailing the bashing. I don’t get it, personally, why anyone chimes in only to knock down a product. If you don’t like something, fair enough, state your preference, maybe say why, then move along. Clearly its a thread for those of us interested in this new product...

    That is great Carolyn, hopefully the little one will get all the attention she needs. You perform a great service.

    Did Your Team Win?-New NFL Season

    Seahawks somehow came away winners vs the Bengals, though I’m not sure they earned it. Watching Pittsburg vs New England shows those teams value their quarterbacks and build an offensive line that isn’t porous as a fishnet. Sadly, I predict Russel Wilson will get injured this year — you just...

    Knowing the cost of remodeling/building out my room, I'm afraid for your bank balances. Clearly you're swinging for the fences. Bravo!

    5 year speaker plan

    I'm just gonna say... having a look at the system of the original poster, I am inclinded to think he's not a novice to the hobby or has gone about collecting the system he has without awareness of room dynamics. Given how great the Diesis speakers sounded in Bob's listening lab (Rhapsody Audio)...

    5 year speaker plan

    Are you in USA? If so, make a point to visit NYC & Bob @ Rhapsody Audio in Manhattan. He has the Alsyvox previously mentioned and also the Diesis “Roma”. Both I think are something you should hear if auditioning speakers in your price range. I personally was gobsmacked by the Diesis, and I am a...
