    On the bright side, Ken Kantor has a pretty active presence at Flikr (not too much hifi,

    I have 2 pairs of NHT's he designed. VT2's and VT3's. Wonder what happened to him on AK. Hasn't been around in a long time.

    As so often (and so unfortunately) seems to happen to real experts when they show up on enthusiast forums, he got picked at by some folks who didn't agree with/accept certain of his positions, so he moved along. Danged shame, IMO. He is a fine fellow based on my interactions with him (which have mostly concerned photography, amusingly enough).

    Yay. :/

    We've been seeing this one twice a day for three or four days now. Don't like seein' 'em in the daytime. They're not supposed to be out in the daytime... but this one does not seem to be sick (i.e., rabid -- sheesh, did I really type rabbit, or did Autocorrect see me comin'? :| ). Seems to be feeding; maybe supporting a brood?

    Ouch!

    Ken, is your listening area on a slab in the new digs?

    Very nice room!

    Is it just an optical illusion, or does the ceiling slope up towards the speakers?

    Thanks, the ceilings are all the same height.

    Ken, the room looks great, however I think you might need a few more records.

    Ken,
    You and your wife have done a great design and decorating job on that "audio" space.

    I meant to ask you this when I first saw the Shoji screens at the end of the room. Is that an end wall the screens are covering? And what is behind regarding the lighting?

    Did the Ikea shelves come with the legs or did you put metal legs on the Ikea shelves?

    You mentioned Baltimore; what city/state do you live now, if I may ask?

    Glad you remain a dedicated member of this forum!

    Hi Harry,
    The previous owner maintained an office in the basement and built the screens as part of the design. There are four flood lamps, two on each side, behind it attached to a rheostat. There is a 2' space to a solid wall behind with a pocket door to another room. In the between space are shelves on either side, I keep some spare audio components and a complete collection of Audio Amateur and Glass Audio magazines. On the other side of the pocket door I have the air compressor and record cleaning stuff set up and model train.

    "Did the Ikea shelves come with the legs or did you put metal legs on the Ikea shelves?"

    We sourced some nice metal legs from Amazon.

    "You mentioned Baltimore; what city/state do you live now, if I may ask?"

    We moved to Hagerstown, MD. and really like the town and people. I'm originally from Cumberland, MD. (about an hour west) and at the time my mother was still there. We picked it because it was partway between there and Baltimore and have found it to be very agreeable. My wife is active in the local art museum and there are some really good restaurants (hopefully soon to be reopened).

    The Tandberg 64 is correct, Mark.

    Viking64 is ALWAYS correct, Mark.

    He knows this. He just hates to admit it. :p

    Most likely, yeah. Probably has a litter.

    They are good to have around. We had one, before it got hit by a car, that was hanging around. Would walk right past me if I was grilling around dusk. They really don't care about you if they don't perceive you as a threat.

    But last year we did have one that would trot around in the later afternoon and then about a month after we started seeing it out during daylight hours, she was walking around with 3 babies following her. They are good to have around. They keep the moles away and bugs down. We've had mole and tick problems this year since our skunk got pasted on the road.

    Raccoons will do the same this time of year. We had a raccoon in the oak tree next to the driveway. About a week ago now she drug two cubs down and they went off somewhere else, haven't seen them since.

    I also keep scaring a couple fawns. One hides in the lilac bushes during the day, the other one hangs out behind the massive brush pile. I've scared the bejesus out of them at least a dozen times now.

    Oh and mama Canada goose has two babies that are big enough to be growing flight feathers now. She had 3 but one just didn't show up one day. Pretty sure one of the snapping turtles got it. Or a coyote.
