    2.1 turntable setup: SVS bookshelf monitor vs Elac tower

    Only a 2 year veteran in vinyl collecting. Looking for a little advice from folks that have put together a budget 2.1 system for 90% vinyl listening. Some background: I am currently running a Project Debut III turntable through a pair of Definitive Technology BP8 towers and a pair of SVS...

    Big Love season 3

    I agree. Given the cat-n-mouse casino business issues with Ted are finally resolved, Nicki is back together with her daughter, the Hendrickson's church has been formed, Roman is not going to be around to start fighting with Alby... all the other loose ends seem unimportant really. Though, they...

    What we all knew already: Opie and Anthony ratings UP!!!!

    What advantages does this move have for XM subscribers? I am admittedly a Sirius subscriber and for fear of being branded someone with an "agenda", I'll ask delicately. I don't know how I would feel as a paying customer if Howard announced he was going to feed his show back into terrestrial...

    Stern Sirius -- O&A XM

    I could have done with fewer "last of a dying breed" in his speech, but otherwise a great final day for Howard. Anyone know if they will stream his show over the internet? I work in an area that I would never get a Sirius signal.

    Lifetime subscriptio????

    ^^^ What he said. As a Sirius subscriber I am content on paying monthly. Satellite radio receivers are in their infancy and there will be only better features coming down the road. Additionally, lifetime should be lifetime. None of this for the receiver only. Thats borderline bait and switch.

    Sirius taking away retail-level market shares from XM for past 3 months!

    Sirius will give Stern a chance to get back to his roots of being the shock jock that he was. It seems a lot of people /were/ Stern fans back in the day until his show started to change. One can argue endlessly what caused the change in his show (my take is BethO and a dash of FCC), but Stern is...

    Pop-up Campers - any advice?

    Thanks for the advice guys. I noticed a couple mentioned having problems with their pop-ups. What generally are the problems? The tent lift system? The appliances? A local dealer has a 2004 Fleetwood he's trying to sell me for $5100. It comes with electric brakes (I think will be important...

    Pop-up Campers - any advice?

    We are in the "heavily considering" stage of buying a pop-up camper, but there are several manufactures to choose from and they all appear to be the same with the exception of cosmetics and floorplans. The shortlist so far: Jayco Fleetwood Starcraft Viking We are shopping for the...

    Carnivale (Season 2)...

    I have a question about the healing process. Does Ben have the ability to control where he takes life from to heal? It certainly appears so because he targeted Justin on the ferris wheel, Lodz, the mother for her son, etc. But then you see scenes like where he heals Jonesy and he makes Libby...

    Do you use a hitch mounted bike rack...

    Thanks for the tips guys. I have been looking around but to be honest there are so many different brands and price ranges I don't know what to look for. I didn't know if its one of those things where a cheap $100 model is all you need or the more expensive models secure better. Any...

    Do you use a hitch mounted bike rack...

    ... that you would recommend? And that can clear the spare tire mounted to the back of a Jeep Wrangler? I have a 2" receiver hitch on my Jeep and I need something that will accommodate three bikes.... Two mountain and one that is a young girls 20" bike. Something that tilts is a plus but...

    Lost Season 1 ongoing thread (merged)

    Between repeats and actively watching over the last couple months I've patchworked most of the show together. The only character's background I don't know much about is Locke(sp?). Last week's rerun told me he was a collections agent for a box company. I *think* I know that before the crash he...

    SIRIUS Announces 1.5M subs

    Chris wrote: I am a Nascar fan - Nextel Cup anyway. I look forward to watching it on Sundays, but will be the first to admit it is a little dry television at times. I couldn't even imagine what its like to simply listen to. I don't know what the circumstances were surrounding the switch...

    Life without Stern isn't pretty...

    The FCC aside, I think two important events happened that have weakened the show. The first was his divorce. While its fun to hear about the "rockstar" lifestyle, it's no replacement for the things you could relate to when listening to him complain about his family life. While we aren't all...

    Life without Stern isn't pretty...

    I never heard a Stern show in my life until he came to Detroit several years ago. Since then I have been a loyal follower of the morning show and the nightly E! show. While I agree in my short listening experience with him his show has taken a turn for the worse over the last year+, I blame it...
