  • Praying for you and your family. RIP.
  • 1. Good speakers don’t sound good without good equipment behind them. 2. Do your best to test used gear before buying. 3. There is good sound for EVERY budget, A.K.A. Audio is not just for people with deep pockets.

  • In with 3. Thanks!
  • One of my LSi’s subs did this for a long time, eventually I accidentally switched the plugs and the problem went away. I don’t know why, or how, but other than turning on and off, never clicked again. So maybe try a different outlet?

  • 3 guys were stuck on an island in the middle of an ocean. They had no food, and no water. Finally, one of them said, “That’s it. I’m swimming back to the mainland.” He proceeded to swim as far as he could. He made it about halfway, got tired, and dr…
  • A robber broke into a house one night, and as he slowly crept throughout the house, he heard some one say, “Jesus is watching you.” He immediately dropped to the floor to avoid being seen. Once nothing happened, he stood up again and looked around. …
  • You could run a 100 watt set of speakers with a 10,000 watt amplifier with no problems. It’s not the power rating of the amplifier that damages speakers, it’s the person controlling the volume. And more often than not, when speakers blow its because…

  • Bump. This sounds pretty good, if you have an old collection of cassettes lying around, this would work very nicely.

  • Did a bit of a rebuild last night. I like it so far!
  • I’ve hadn’t a great summer, for Audio and otherwise. Got a TT, a few receivers, SDA’s, and have been enjoying every minute of it. Also had family from Norway here. I’m also going to go to Glacier National Park for the week, leaving on Monday. It’s …
  • My grandpa found this at his friends house, who didn’t want it, so he gave it to me. Sony STR-D715. 2 channel integrated, which seems to have surround and center channels just for marketing reasons, as there are no specs or anything for anything but…
  • Our GoodWill used to have all kinds of stuff. There was a older Marantz that someone beat me to by about 10 seconds, probably a year ago. Recently, the only decent audio gear I’ve found there were some old Kenwood speakers. A few DVD and CD players …
  • Make sure everything is unplugged during the storm. A friend of mine lost a rather expensive gaming computer to a storm. Saved up three years of money for it, gone in a second. Stay safe.

  • Try using other inputs, different wall outlets, different settings, etc. Then, give Polk CS a call, they can get it sorted out for you.
