    Or possibly Dorcas.

    Oh ... my ... I see what you did there ! :o

    Being as we are speaking of a turntable, I suppose a good homophone was in order.

    Dorcas is a classical name. It's in the Bible (Acts 9). It's Greek for Tabitha, which is itself Aramaic.
    (Greek: Δορκάς, Dorkás; Aramaic: טביתא‎ Ṭabītā)

    Very! Cool Drew. Should be a great experience for you and the missus (presumably she is going)

    Yep, she is excited about it. Hopefully they have CDs for sale at the show!

    I hope they do a drum n bass beat at some point. Wishful thinking?

    If they do, and you think it’s worth it, grab me one and I’ll shoot you the cash.

    I like the looks of this setup:

    They look like the trash cans inside a McDonald's. :p

    Wouldn't know. Haven't eaten McDonalds for 14 years.

    Eaten at McDonald's. You wrote "Eaten McDonald's" which doesn't make any sense.
  • ClipdatClipdat Posts: 6,573
    Doesn't it though?

    And I could have said "Burger King", "Wendy's", "7-11", "Bank of America", "That gas station out on Route 15". But that is all irrelevant. Those speakers reminded me of trash cans and I made a silly joke about it. Jeez Louise. :p

    The food at McDonald's isn't simply "McDonald's". That's just retarded.

    I had a huge crush on a girl named Louise in high school. Man she was smoking hot!

    Edit: middle school and high school.

    It's a well known colloquialism. "Haven't eaten McDonalds [food] for 14 years." Food is implied. Do you think I'm referring to the brick and mortar structure of the building that I haven't eaten?

    To pointlessly nitpick apart my original statement over "incorrect" grammar really says something about you.

    To make the remark that you haven't eaten at McDonald's for 14 years so you wouldn't know what the trash cans look like says WAY MORE ABOUT YOU, which is why I was a dick. :p

    FWIW -- I don't think you'd be very happy with the presentation afforded by LaScalas. Tom Brennan has famously likened them to the dulcet tones of a Skilsaw. :)
    They're very aggressive in the treble and while they offer the dynamics of horn loaded bass, the enclosure is much too small to extend very deep, so they are lacking in low bass. They're fundamentally PA speakers (and were sold in utility cabinets as such).

    If you want to go the broadband, all-horn-loaded route -- cut to the chase and get a pair of Klipschorns. Even the current production K-horns (even after a recent price increase) are pretty cost effective relative to modern audiophile loudspeakers.

    They are ahem rather large, and the classic K-horns require corner placement to load them properly (there is a current version that includes an "artifical corner" and is
    more flexible in placement) but hoo-boy, they can do dynamics. They're also highly tweakable. A whole cottage industry of "Heritage" Klipsch speaker improvements/tweaks grew up, and still exists.

    Perhaps, but I bet they would hold a lot of garbage and you could stack a whole lot of trays on them. :p
