Listening to FM tonite (WDRV) as background music while I mess around with various stuff.

Beautiful setup and listening space you have there, Hero!
XDH-- Where'd you get those Classic Universal Monsters (tm) headshots from?
Off the innerwebs of course,LOL.
The whole "picture" thing started out with me scanning & printing my concert ticket stubs & framing those for posterity.
Then while I was doing that I ran across a brand new packet of 4x6 photo paper I picked up ??? for some ??? reason.
So I figured I'd print up a bunch of cool "nostalgic stuff" from my misspent youth and what-not.
Wanted that to look reasonably presentable so I got some uber cheap frames from Wally World and the whole thing sorta grew from there.
Yeah I used to be waaayyy into the old classic comedy & monster movies and such,every week I could'nt wait for the creature feature on late-night TV.
And after that would always be a bunch of old comedy movies and such,Stooges Marx bros. Bing & Bob that sorta stuff.
Back then there was'nt no 100+ channels and the web to watch late @ night...
What was on the handful of channels still broadcasting is what you watched.
Otherwise it was all test patterns,LOL.
D@ng now I'm dating myself,oh well GTG for now.
BTW right now it's Aerosmith playing "Dream On" on WDRV,,,still FM,,,Still those JBL LX-22 w/the Celestion S20 sub...
Thanks,honestly the place itself is sorta "shabby chic" as it's an old house w/old carpet & the walls could definitely use some fresh paint,yadda,yadda,yadda.
But right now I cant complain much,the place has been in the family for 30+ years.
So there's really no one to blame for that other than the kin folk living here (it's my older brother's place now).
And many (MANY) years ago it was a bit of a "hangout" of sorts,so it's seen a lotta wear & tear (read: partying) thru the years.
It's not remotely like that anymore mind you,nowadays the place is about as quiet & boring as a home could be.
Regardless it would take a monumental effort to try and tackle all the "decor challenges" anytime soon.
So it's really one project at a time these days,and that was one project I felt like taking on right now.
I just needed a place that I could retreat to and stare @ the walls & tune everything else out.
I haven't heard this album sound this good in a long time.
Okay classical sounds great too.
I just had to play this again!
Wife says it's corny.
Have a great day folks!
Okay one more, nice sound test.
Jayhawks "Hollywood Town Hall":
Now that is an interesting speaker. It must have a built in sub, because I see knobs? Very cool!
The woofers have a contour control which helps adjust to the room, the tweets have a high frequency control.
I don't know much about these but I likey so far.
They are nice for late night listening, sound very detailed and warm at low volumes.
They are not lacking low end for sure.
