    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...

    Help needed identifying this hawk

    Hey guys... after taking Daves advice, I googled for some pics and Red Tailed seemed to be the closest match... and from what I saw, my visitor has some of the cleanest and most well defined markings. I am wondering if in fact its the morning doves that are attracting him... we have them...

    Conan O'Brian w/ Brian Williams - Thur Night

    I finally got around to watching Thursday night's show and I have a dumb question for whoever might have caught that show.... Is Williams really that big of an ass or was it just shtick? At some point you'd expect his put downs to Conan and the show to subside but he was relentless and Conan...

    Help needed identifying this hawk

    ...at least I think hawk... red tailed hawk perhaps? Imagine your surprise when your 7 year old daughter yells out, "Daddy there's a huge eagle in the tree!" As I take a look out the window, my jaw about hit the floor. Down the stairs I fly and grab my digital camera. Slowly opening the front...

    Someone stole my saw...

    Jon_Are, Thanks for that link, I'm picking it up this weekend. In fact I left the garage open at night not 3 months ago and someone took my wife's cell phone out of her car. I *need* something like that on the nightstand since I am obviously incapable of remembering what status I've left the...

    Someone stole my saw...

    Is this a given that your premium will go up as result? My deductable is $250 and I filed the police report today and called AAA. I supposed that I was excited to get even a $100 out of it... but not at the expense of a higher premium.

    Someone stole my saw...

    :angry: Just venting... Apparently when I left for work this morning I forgot to close the garage door. Didn't think much of it when I got home until I noticed on my workbench my miter saw is GONE! WTF! Man I am so pissed (at myself). I just bought it last fall to re-do the deck this summer...

    Where to aim a port

    Cabin gain... I wish :frowning: Thanks for the tips... In fact I might just put some of the port outside to use as a "natural" fan over the amp. The box is going to be 1.6cf^3 (this accomodates for drivers displacement). Slightly larger I think because I'll have to build a brace inside...

    Where to aim a port

    Thanks again! Just as a side note, how much room for error does one have with port lenghts? For instance I know for the driver and enclosure I am going to use, the port is to be 3" x 16.5". If for some reason the tube actually ended up being 16.75" or 16.25" because of something I screwed up...

    Where to aim a port

    Thanks! And as long as I am keeping the port tube the proper length overall, a 90 degree bend inside the box is fine correct? KW

    Where to aim a port

    Hi, I have what I am sure is an easy question. I am building a ported enclosure for my car but due to space limitations its going to be rather long and narrow. Can I use a PVC elbow so that the port opening is on the same side as the driver, or does this not matter? In other words can the...

    New vehicle - first and subsequent oil changes

    When I recently bought my Wrangler, they threw in eight free oil changes - all must be used within the first 2 years (in other words one for every three months). Considering that my driving habits probably fall under the service plan B of the maintenance log (oil change every 6000 miles), is...

    Looking for a little game someone posted...

    ...here several months ago. It's basically a little slider game where you are trying to move blocks of different sizes around to get one block in particular out a hole. Each level you go up increases the difficulty and amount of the moves you have to do to get that one block out. Thats the...

    Installers are saying Pro-Logic II better than DD or DTS!

    Bottom line is he is owed the functionality he paid for. Their subjective opinion on formats is irrelevant. Whether DPII is better or not is not the point. He bought a receiver that supports XYZ formats, they installed and configured it, they owe him what he paid for. end of story.

    Metallica disgusts me

    The exchanged rate is $71 US for this concert we're discussing, not $90. It is not just Metallica playing, it is also Godsmack which, IMO, is no slouch of an opening act. I have been to a couple of Godsmack concerts that were ~$35 or less. If I mentally imagine that $71 dollars being allocated...
