    Sometimes you come across a setup that just makes you say WTF and do a facepalm:

    What is he doing with that speaker placement here?

    Maybe he was moving & making adjustments, I will say, I want this TV stand or one almost exactly like it called the Corridor 8179 Modern TV Stand & Media Console BDI Furniture.
    I wish it wasn't $3000 or I would of aready bought it Caleb from Digital trends loves this stand but 3k is hard to justify for a stand imo. but it is built like a tank and would last a lifetime.

    If I may be snarky, what a waste of ARC and Nagra. The JBLs must mean it's in Japan. Not to mention putting the speaker that close to the power amp is a problem.

    I was just posted these same thoughts, there was no shielding on those model years..

    I dunno, I think the vase on top of the JBL helps to bring the whole ensemble together. 😵

    His stand, speakers, amps & and turntable show good taste. He has some excellent gear and furniture here, he just needs help with the execution. What, Now, I sound like a reality show.. Never mind!

    I just want this stand and need that push to pull the trigger..

    WTF? When I first saw it without my glasses, I thought the two on the left were a couple of R2D2's on top.

    Not to mention that the vase on top of it is poised to be fodder for a Maxell print ad reboot for the 21st Century.

    @CH46E Chris, let me guess...did you work around them @ Edwards? When I was kid, there, they used them as lifting bodies for many of the experimental aircraft. My dad worked at the Army Aviation Flight Activity and they'd often park between his hanger and the Dryden/NASA direction. I have a really cool pic of him standing next to the X-24 (bionic man/Col Steve Austin/Lee Majors fame) when it was hung under the wing. Pretty wild that I went on to work in support of the G and H model 52's.

    Around what??? The B52? During my time with the Marines HMM-764 CH46E squadron, I don't think I saw a single B52. In April 2001, I saw a JSF F35 doing a VTOL exercise. Never saw a F35 after that. I saw a Airbus A380 test there. Watched F22 Raptors a lot. Got up close to a few at the wash rack right behind the ATC tower. Watched several B2 bombers land and take off. Watched a few Shuttle Landings. Lots of sonic booms.

    We did load 6 CH46E into 2 USAF Galaxy C5s and fly to Trinidad Tobago. Our annual Weed Eater operation where we helped local gov hual out tons of Marijuana. WE GOT TO BE THERE WHEN THE INCENERATED IT!!!! 30 day no drug test waivers after that!!! 😀🙃🙃😉



    I miss that desert.

    Sorry 'bout that. Yes, the 52. You "agreed" to the post so I just assumed you had experience with them. LOL on the Trinidad TDY!

    No doubt B52 is Instrumental to our freedom!

    And I'm pretty sure we ate all the Funoinons on the island. Oh and Shaggy the singer was in a room on our floor in the hotel. He just happens to be a Marine. Was a pretty cool night. Not trying to incriminate anyone here. But we had a lot of fun.

    Really? Shaggy was a Marine? Did I just fall for a load of BS? I guess I could look it up. I love Funions! Haven't had them for years. Dammit, add them to the shopping list. Could add somthin' else since it's legal, but it's been many years...............

    All the best are Marines. Rob Riggle, a Special Forces Colonel.... I know. Hard to believe. Drew Carry, Marines. Dan Daily, HERO Marine, Chesty Puller, HERO Marine.
