    Miata's are awesome budget track cars. Even if they are a little feminine looking.

    I’m too tall for a Miata... it’s like the time a friend insisted I borrow his MBZ SLK: I was too tall, so I felt like I would be catching flies on my forehead the whole time 😬 😱

    What was the name the audio forum full of foul mouthed twits from across the pond that occasionally tried to spam threads a while back?

    It was something like snakeoil audio, or something close to it.

    And another thing - I don’t believe I’ve EVER seen such a blatant display of latent homosexual desire...

    There was a group from Audioholics that came over here with some racist crap back in 2009/10 that did crap like this for 2 days straight. One of them was allowed to stay for some time after the initial ban, until it was pointed out that the user name was a racial epithet spelled backwards.

    That’s reassuring, @F1nut.

    I was never especially close to him, but to go off the rails like that did not seem in character from what I knew of him. Also, he had a fairly decent grasp of grammar and the proper use of the English language, which these trolls do not seem to possess in adequate measure.

    Not this weekend, but the one after. We are heading over a week from tomorrow. I figured we could meet up Friday or Saturday (27th or 28th), whatever works for you.

    Damn - just remembered I need to dig those speakers out...:-)

    @dolbyd planning on a pair of L700 towers to replace your RTi towers?

    That is a good thought for upgrades but for H.T. the 9s are still a great way to go. Maybe?

    I have been thinking about starting the basement and I have an area that would make the perfect L800 setup.
    I can’t wait to hear them properly setup. I do wish Broadway Music was still in Business here in SLC.
    They were a true Polk Shop in the day and would have had these for preview.

    The Basement will be a couple years of work for me. I guess we see what the future holds.
