  1. The Zu is a kickback IMO. It's reminiscent of popular speakers of the 70's. If you like that 'in your face' presentation, then you might also like vintage Cerwin Vega, JBL, Panasonic Thrusters etc... Albeit the Zu is a jump in quality over the aforementioned brands. Still, you can get pretty close for a fraction of the price of the Zu's. Not sure where you're going to find a grouping of those vintage brands to audition though.

    Damn! Season 3 has the "big man", Clarence Clemons.
  3. I think you should mount a ski on front.

    I finally started watching this series, and there are a lot of faces I didn't expect to see. Michael B. Jordan, Idris Elba, but the one that really surprised me was Ashy Larry from the Chappell Show. It started a bit slow, but I like the steady climb as apposed to just blowing shit up and shooting people. Good characters.
  6. I would buy a 3 1/4 hp router. In a router table you're likely to want to use large bits at times, and the 3 1/4 hp motor is much more robust. The Bora Porta-mate gets good reviews.
  7. You're getting older, and that's a bummer. But we still love you Michael Grummer! Have the best Birthday ever!
  8. Changed out my ZU DL-103 for the Benz Micro Ace SL that arrived today. Got the new cartridge aligned, tracking force set to 1.7g and VTA at 20 degrees. Yeah, definitely an upgrade! Wow, really liking this cartridge! Flat and neutral? No. Fun and engaging? Hell yes!
  9. I feel like the area behind the system is too live. I would work on deadening that space. Maybe 6 or 7 dozen more kitty's?
