  • After you pay to get it fixed you will have a $200 amp Unless there is some sentimental value you might be better off taking the repair $$'s and put it toward something better.

  • I doubt a premade lobster roll will taste good after it is frozen and shipped. Its easy to make one at home. The filling is easy. Cook a lobster, take out the meat, cut it up, and add a spoonful of mayo and a squirt of lemon (I add a drop of t…

  • Google "will it blend?" and watch the videos on Youtube. It will entertain you for hours. Don't breath this............. But be warned. A Vitamix will seem lame in comparison,

  • Cleaning dope is so 70-80's. Then was the last time anyone saw a seed or a stem? Good thing too. How many millennials even know what an LP is.
  • Forget what you heard.......there is no recipe for gumbo. Its more of a way of cooking anything / any critter you happen to buy,shoot, steal or scrape off the road. There are some basics though. Every gumbo starts with a dark Roux (equal part…
  • Get a Kitchen aid mixer and buy the grinding attachment. Besides an occasional pack of Costco hamburgers I have not bought preground hamburger in 20 years. It takes 5 min, and cleanup is easy. You just rinse it off the chunks and put it in yo…
  • I don't like the sound of this. Everyone knows tubes do not have the consistency of solid state components and their microohm output does vary (even between 2 new tubes, same brand, and made the same day............ But all tubes have specs tha…

  • If you believe basic audio physics............. The lsims are 88 db at one watt input. 10x the power gets you an additional 10 dbs So at 100 watts they can theoretically put out 108 dbs at max volume (but no one should ever play an amp that har…

  • It is hard to believe that all 4 drivers on two separate speakers are frozen. Do the speaker bodies have large dents and major damage like they were dropped? Push each driver (not the passive) gently trying to keep the pressure centered. They…
  • Don't discount Latin jazz. Listen to "Friday Night in San Francisco" with John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola and Paco Delucia I (IIRC). One of (if not the) greatest live acoustic recording ever. Then listen to Di Meola's Elegant Gypsy. Then li…
  • That is one ugly speaker...............But the ledge to hold your beer could be handy.

  • Keep your surround sound rig as is and start saving up for a dedicated stereo. Then you will know about an expensive hobby................
  • Just test the resistors in place with your multimeter. Set it to the lowest ohm reading you have and place the probes on each side of the resistor leads. They should read the correct value. Then do the same for the inductors. They should re…

  • Are you sure your buddy needs or will even appreciate a $1000 amplifier? Yes I know most Polkies at least that for starters or they are slumming......But does your friend need one as his first stereo rig? Lots I need to know before I can recomm…
  • I notice Wireworld uses the same model name for years but then makes changes with the Series (6,7,8....). Some of these changes look major. The wire layout between the series 7 and 8 interconnects are totally different. Do you have a feel for…

  • My guess is lightning. I find it hard to believe you can turn an amp up so much it can vaporize a resistor and melt an inductor at the same time. From his later pics you can see the totally gone resistor is a sand cast one. How do you vaporize…
