So now I'm confused... Is Micah the real Tony or were they identical twins separated by birth and never knew the real story of how their father had faked his own death, ran away with the insurance money, got blackmailed by another son, ...

You can't fool me. I can see the end of this little movie plot you have going a mile away. Tony is going to mysteriously die in a horrible, flaming, dental record destroying, car crash. Then you both collect the insurance, run off to Mexico where you adopt a pet lizard named "Flicky", meet up with the real Tony and give him his share.

It gets complicated because your fiancee's secret son with Tony, hunts you down in Mexico, blackmails you, and then in a surprising show of cruelty, shoot's Tony, his own father, when you don't pay up. You get really scared and pay the blackmail money only to learn that the son has run off to Brazil with the really, real Tony. This is discovered when you go to hide 2nd fake Tony's body and the home made, bee's wax makeup has melted from his face in the hot Mexican desert sun.

However, it all works out because on the now dead 2nd fake Tony's body you discover a cell phone with a timer counting down. 2nd dead fake Tony suspected he might get double crossed and rigged the pre-arranged money bag with a bomb set to detonate in 48 hours if he didn't call to disarm it.

You two, using your last bit of cash that was hidden in your pet lizard's house, bribe a corrupt Mexican telephone company worker to access the GPS tracking on the number set to be dialed on 2nd dead fake Tony's cell phone before the bomb goes off. You then fly down to arrive just minutes after the bomb goes off in the hut that real Tony's now dead son is using to hide in the jungle. You fight off snakes, killer spiders and sexually aroused monkeys while you rummage through the body parts with a metal detector to find the safety deposit box key that they transferred all the money too and retrieve all the multi-stolen insurance money.

Sorry, Micah, you can't fool me. You need a wayyyyyyy less obvious plan.

And oh yes, Don't forget! Real Tony will still be out there!!!


Well this is all fine and good, but the thing is Murph, this is pretty much verbatim the scenario that played out with me and my first wife. Except her ex's name was Fernando, it all went down in San Marco, and in the end Fernando turned out to actually be Muffit, the android dog off of Battlestar Galactica.

I was hoping this relationship would turn out a little more original.

If we can snag Stanley Kubrick it will do much better at the box office.

Correct. If we can dead tree Stanley Kubrick, box office sales will be much better. I used the term 'snag' because it flowed better.

um, not to change the topic, or anything but in reply to post number #297529, posted by tincanman. On the topic of the 200$ speaker V.S. the 500$ speaker. In all honestly, it's up to you if the 200$ speaker sounds better to you then buy it. It's all personal taste.

As far as the whole cable thing goes, I use 10guage cable, because at that point no matter what the speaker will never use anywhere near the current that the cable can provide.. The cables are also DIY cables \:\)

Electronics.
I have gone from a Marantz reciever, to a Marantz reciever+Marantz amp. to a Nad processor with the Marantz amp. Now I have a Krell processor with Krell amps. 1 (3 channel) and 1 (2 channel), each amp is rated at 250W at 8 ohms, and 500W at 4 ohms... To be completely honest. The Krell electronics do sound better, but only because of the balanced interconnects between the processor and the amp. this completely eliminates any electrical interference. The Marantz amp would have a few channels occasionally clip during a movie. The Krell amps have WAY more power than the axioms will ever want.

I would say sound quality is pretty much the same for every solid state amp, the only difference being how much power they can produce..

Did the best buy you went to have a Kuro on display??

TCM - I suggest you look at the Denon 590 or 1610 which are very similar models marketed through different channels. One of my neighbors asked for advice in replacing his very old Pioneer pro-logic receiver with a new 5.1 receiver. I started looking at Pioneer and Onkyo but stumbled across the Denon while reading customer reviews on Amazon. Check out the Amazon customer reviews for models from all three companies to see what I mean.

Those Denon models are the lowest priced new units that matrix all inputs onto the HDMI output. They don't upscale the non hdmi inputs, but usually an expensive TV does that better than a low end receiver. I installed a Denon 1610 for my neighbor and can say that it's very impressive for the price. The only complaint is that the manual is hard to follow. I have a Pioneer VSX-45 but I'm sort of jealous now of my nieghbor's Denon. Let me know if you have any questions.

Bill
