My live-in mother-in-law has an Occupational Therapist in-home visit twice weekly (which I hope doesn't discontinue due to recent legislation) and she is a young, easy-on-the-eye female with a friendly smile and lots of patience for the elderly. Helen is always a welcome visitor. She sometimes whistles along with a tune playing on the Klipschorns, and her tone is pure and on key - heard her softly sing along with one song, and she has a good voice, as well. Growing up, anyone in our family might at any time be singing or whistling, so I recognized a kindred spirit, especially when I found she loves, and is very familiar with, music from eras decades prior to her own. I've heard her whistle, sing or hum along with Sinatra, Fleetwood Mac, Doobies and a plethora of other artists. She's been coming by for a couple months now, and has remarked about how good the Klipschorns sound previously. Today, I had just begun the Fleetwood Mac DVD, The Dance, as she entered. As many of you likely know, it begins with a heavy kick-drum beat for The Chain by Mick. She stood enthralled as she watched and listened to the song, then remarked, "These are just the best speakers I've ever heard." "Not bad for a forty-one year old pair of speakers, huh?" "What?!" "This pair was built in 1976, but the design and production began in 1946. A seventy-year-old design that has stood the test of time well enough that you can still buy a brand new pair, still built in Hope, Arkansas." "...and they sound better than anything built today," she replied. I laughed, "well, better than anything you've heard, anyway." "I don't see how it could be better." "Yeah... me neither, but don't tell my friends I said so." She looked a bit puzzled but got to her work, which I had delayed. After her half-hour or so of therapy, she said as she was leaving, "I love to come here because the music is so good." Post your Klipsch Enkounters here.
