    I found this a little funny. Music Direct uses "NHT" Now Hear This and thier ad does not feature a single NHT model. Just a little chuckle.

    Yeah, that kind of stuck in my craw, too!
    On the bright side, Ken Kantor has a pretty active presence at Flikr (not too much hifi, but some nice images).

    I don't see the humor. Just face your back towards the bricks and swing away from the wall...

    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.

    Ken, are those custom shelves for the vinyl?
  • KennethSwaugerKennethSwauger Moderator Posts: 7,147
    The salmon colored shelves were built when I lived in Baltimore. The black ones are from Ikea, we added metal feet and a masonite back. Here are some early photos when we first moved here showing the transplant shelves after we repainted them.wji4wjl7no35.jpg

    My wife photoshopped a representation of what everything might look like. We ended needing two more of the Ikea shelves to fit the records. Plus several other record shelves that we also brought from Baltimore.

    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).

    These photos show how the record storage finally turned out, the area behind the listening area are six shorter record cabinets.
    Very classy presentation! 🤩

    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!
