I absolutely love those moments in audio!

I had the same experience.  No going back now.  Just got to keep the west wind from messing with the antenna.

The house I live in now, which is a 1880's Victorian, could easily have had a rooftop antenna as well...I was kinda sorry it didn't. Doesn't seem worthwhile to put one up, but I've considered it!!!

It's interesting you call your house Victorian as I would call mine Edwardian. When as an American you should be naming the period after a President of the period, no?

 

Ie your house should be either from the  Garfield, Arthur, or Cleaveland period.

Victorian is the style/type. They also built Tudors in this era, but mine isn't wink.gif

History, anyone? Back in the early 1800's, Americans...

I bet it's vintage... and lovely. On a somewhat related note, I really dig The Old House and the New Mansion portrayed in the original "Dark Shadows."

Oh yeah...it's vintage alright...and it needed a full restore when I bought it, too wink.gif

Don't mind me. I'm just kicking dirt until my SX1980, or should that be 1880 returns from Texas for it's full restoration.

I grew up in a Nixonian neighborhood. Architecturally suspect.

"Clicks" defeated for Silent Moderolleyes.gif I really am a pretty silent cat, though - stay up all night, tippin' through the alleys in between overnight sessions. evil_smiley.gif

I've heard those properties have bug problems.

Scored a very nice pair of HPM-60s at the thrift store last week. I really love their sound! I enjoyed them so much that I decided to make my first pair of speaker stands for them.

^They look like they are in really good condition. Are you going to get the crossovers recapped? I did that to my HPM 100's and it really made a difference.

Great thread. Subscribed.
Using LCD2's, I recently gave up on my maxxed Woo WA6 after i dusted off an old 90's Onkyo receiver i had just sitting in a cupboard. Wow, it simply does everything better than that WA6. The LCD's have simply jumped into another realm of performance. Funny thing is, ive never really rated the Onkyo as a good amp for speakers, at best average only. But its headphone jack seems to work wonders with the the right cans.
Think i have a case of the vintage amp bug. The quest begins!
