        It may all be semantics. I personally don't care, because what a paper or presentation say does not change the facts. But it confuses the hell out of kids that barely know how their body works.

        Logical progression or reductio ad absurdum: the skin is a sexual organ.

        Would it have killed them to leave the lad to his own devices, so he could learn about buggery the old-fashioned way, from a copy of Hustler?

        Seems like there are a lot of options to get stuff around here if you don’t go to the main grocery stores at 3pm. If you go early they have a lot of stuff because they restock every night. Saltgrass Steakhouse have turned themselves into a grocery market selling all kinds of raw meats, seafood, dairy, eggs, etc..; the local dairies sell retail, Fuddruckers has meat and bread. Hoarders still suck though.

        @zerodeefex : once you have a temperature stable cellar you will enjoy aging wines further while cycling through. Many good reds benefit from an additional 5 to 15 years. Just pulled a 2013 Cab dominant Bookwalter and it was a palatial delight.

        MicroCenter seems heathy to me... at least the one I go to in OH. Bit of chaos going on in the WH ATM. We HAVE to deal with this guy, but kinda agree China's been taking advantage over the years- probably the only thing I semi agree with-- handling of it, don't know yet!

      Have you seen this? up to 45 degrees silly flat and collimated, small dip at 15k, then goes up (this is probably impossible to hear for us old farts anyway, might actually increase presence, or, perhaps it's breakup?)

        Nobody 'hears' much after 15 kHz.
        Problems in this area disturb 'air'.

        Apparently that area ia called "presence" and enhancing it gives a feeling of hifi.
        Probably bullshit. Who knows. Should be easy to kill it with eq if it's bothersome.

        Air... Presence... well yes, even I believe in it, although I am now entirely unable to hear it. Feeling of hifi? I think that may be a bullshit description, but I wouldn't argue too much with something like feeling of being there. But this must be happening a bit lower than 15k, because, as Priidik says, most adults don't hear much above that anyway.

        Chernobyl is great, it has a tie in podcast to go with every episode.

        Just got my HBO sub to go watch through a few shows I been meaning to. But I imagine if I don't watch it for a week I will can it.

        Seeing as we just sub'd 2 weeks ago, we're gonna watch a few movies before ours will also be cancelled. 1 month for US$15 isn't so bad for all that.

        Listening to a recording of speakers is something I have zero experience with...I have no idea how it translates, how much of a difference the mic, positioning, SPL (how closely do they need to be matched?) come into play. That's where my distrust comes from.

        I meant the above as a compliment. Having heard the RF7 yourself probably helps, at least it would give me something to correlate what I'm hearing.

        I honestly never would have thought there was much of value in a recording of speakers until your post. That's why I initially asked if you were being sarcastic...it was true curiosity.

        My bad for not trying to be more clear since you don't know where I'm coming from.

        Don't worry. Yes. It's not the same thing as the real deal. But it gives one some idea, specially if two speakers are recorded the same way and one is familiar with one. IMO.

        I sold truckloads of Forte 2s back in the day. Never heard a F3. As an option, I bet if you picked up a used pair of 2s you could hotrod those to meet or exceed the 3s. Paul Klipsch was a genius.

      Today I read somewhere that class A was the sex cuz no crossover distortion. Note the operating region of a device is approximately linear.
      1. ultrabike
        ultrabike
        So no, there is still distortion. Particularly compression can occur. So even in the absence of cross over distortion, the system can be made more linear with some negative feedback.

        I figured you might find it useful, it’s too much of a pain in the butt to mess around with clip leads and external loads...and it also allows you to use a headphone as a load. We use these boards internally, so I figured we should build some up and share them. Marv and AtomicBob got boards too.
