The wife has my son out at the mall for a couple hours, So I popped the grills off the 1.2TL's and cranked it up... The iron-fisted grip these tubes have over the big dogs still astonishes me. Just wish I could load a video....

Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    Rock on when you can, John. B)

    I'll bet your neighbors know when your wife has your son out doing things. :D
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    So far, Quiet Riot, Led Zep, Greta Van Fleet, AC/DC, and Rush have appeared at concert levels....

    Now playing is Simon and Garfunkel. I don't know if it's just me, but things really do sound better after everything has been pushed hard for a bit before I settle in to actually do serious listening.

    You guys seriously need to get “Love”... the soundtrack for a Beatles show in Vegas of the same name. The first several songs on this album actually move me to tears at times. It sounds and feels like you are actually in the third row of a live Beatles concert, had the ever reunited.

    Simon and Garfunkel??? :)

    After cranking the stereo, your ears are warmed up, and ready to go. For whatever reason, I think my system sounds better in 80-90db range versus lower. Then again, rock is meant to be played loud. String quartets certainly do not sound better at a higher volume. :)
