Re: Gray tops-Who did we see in concert last night?

Re: New Ribbon Speakers!

Even Mr. Carver's web site doesn't show anything yet on a half sized speaker model.

Re: Can Sunfires be bridged

I am sure I'm wrong but it just seems to me that if a speaker is so ineffecient to need that high of power, then A very large amount is instead going to heat. Wouldn't it be at least a bit like an electric heater? How do the elements deal with the heating? I've never been around a speaker able to ha...

Re: BBQ anyone

These days if you were seen chasing one down with your BBQ apron on, you'd probably wind up in trouble. "Officer, really, the meat in the store really does come from somewhere!"

Re: 490t tube change time??

Hmmmm...that multiple disc tube CD player, new in the box, is still setting out there.

Wonder, as all disc players continue to dissappear into the fog of time past, if that's one to look back at and say one of these days, "it seemed like too much at the time".

Re: Weekend music time

The time they spent with Linda was actually very brief. A couple of them (Frey and Henley) made one tour with her. Meisner and Leadon joined the tour In progress. I think the timing was at her Silk Purse album, her second. (Ironically was "Nashville country" rather than "California Country") They to...

Re: Weekend music time

A weekend and at last, a little music listening time. Got hooked on a song and then spent some time going back to the Southern California "Country Rock" era. It's easy to forget (due to the monster hit songs that came later) that the early Eagles were very country. And most know the early associatio...
