    To let everyone know, my new Emotiva UPA-2 amp powers a pair of Polk LSi9's very well.
    The Monitor 70's sound pretty good too. The beat goes on....

    Thanks for the update.

    but I thought this was TOO funny! I had this in another thread and removed it. This is not intended to inflame the passions of this discussion.:D

    But that was not originally for the Emotiva fans. That was originally for the Emo music genre, also known as emotional rock. The eyeglasses logo is in conjuction with the fashion statement where they wear dark horn-rimmed glasses.

    Just a little music history for you tonight. :p

    Nope...he started this one...2 years ago.

    Ricardo...if you talk to them...tell them I haven't changed my mind...just been too busy to call them to let them know.

    I think this thread should be closed, or I might bring it back in 2013. If there's still a world then.

    Steve, I have not called them either. I am afraid they might remember the story and send me another shipping invoice.

    I think you should call them before 5 years warranty expire soon.

    I heard the shipping for multiple replacement is Free as long as it's within 5 years warranty.

    I can't imagine beer floats being too tasty, but I'd like to recommend Tequila & Milk.

    Mixes best with a less expensive brand of tequila (Jose Cuervo Gold) and whole milk.

    Tasty and nutritious !
    Don't let the mix sit too long before imbibing, however. The milk will sometimes .... conglobulate. And conglobulation is not a good thing.

    Ya know what's surprisingly good? Milk and cranberry juice.

    I know, I know...sounds disgusting right? That's what I thought too, until I tried it just a few nights ago. It tastes astonishingly like strawberry milk.

    Every now and then, I make a pretty nice floater and forget to flush. Emo threads are just like that.

    Well, I've heard Odyssey gear first and and it's right up there.......this poster is obviously blind. If Emo is THAT good then the rest of the audio companies might as well pack it in and call it a day.

    Bigred, that post is a little over the top and reeks of someone who really hasn't been in the game very long. Hitch your wagon to that horse and your bound to end up **** over apple cart ;).
