    I think they're the coolest birds!

    I didn't know they existed until I moved to NC.

    I saw a swampy area out in the boonies west of Shalotte NC. that had 100 or more perched on the power lines. They might've been feeding on tad poles.

    I've since RARELY seen more than 2 on the same powerline beside each other. Also...they are a rare sight anyway.

    kookaburra the largest of King Fishers but do not eat fish. They are from down under.

    at least that is what they look like to me.

    Other; M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All vintage Polk have had crossover rebuilds and tweeter upgrades.

    T1_34_pairmain_1500x.png?v=1516048193

    My wife said she liked the looks of these Emotiva T1 tower speakers. :open_mouth:

    I guess Emotiva has high WAF, even if their speakers aren't the greatest sounding.*



    *Disclaimer: I've never heard an Emotiva speaker.

    I sent her the photo and asked if she liked them, she said "Without the grills, yes. With them on, it reminds me of something from early Star Trek episodes where they didn't understand design yet."

    I guess your wife has good taste in not only the aesthetics of "affordable" speakers, but also the performance. I've never heard them myself, but they are very well reviewed.

    ^^that is because this and Doc' s room are classics. Hopefully new members will appreciate both. New members? Never mind, those are few and far between.
