Well, it has to be a record... It took 34 pages or so for this thread to spiral off into fishing, yard work, tractors, and cleaning women. \:\)

Me too Adrian.

I'll be in your shoes tomorrow Jeff, our day is on Friday ... that way the yard will be spiffy for the weekend.


You mean you don't dust your own yard?

Only one little problem with this choice for me... I don't like to fish.


A cat that doesn't like to fish? Whoever heard of such a thing?

Is it the 31'st yet. I am looking forward to getting my new toy. Friday I got to show a friend my system. He was totally amazed.

Talking about showing your system to a friend, here's and interesting side story. I had a friend (actually, the person I hired as my general contractor for our home addition 2 years ago) and his family over last weekend for dinner. He's building a new house and was interested in my input for his new theater. I had only showed him my setup once when he was building the addition. I mentioned a new speaker that I had (the VP180, which just came in the mail), and before I could even mention the manufacturer, he remembered that I had Axioms. I was pretty surprised that he remembered that, but then he told me how floored he was with the sound he heard when I played them for him (2 years ago for about 10 minutes).

This time, they all came down to the theater and I played a scene from Avatar (have not played the whole movie yet, but it was a scene where the main character was trying to capture what looked like a dragon). Anyway, we all watched for at least 10 minutes, and they were mesemerized (actually, I was too. The subs were really moving some serious air in that scene. You could feel the shock waves hitting you as the dragon flapped it's wings).

When it was over, my friend and his wife said they never experienced anything like that. The sound was better than any home theater they heard. Their little girl was really excited and said it was better than seeing it in the movies.

That's a cool story. People have enjoyed my system, but no one has yet been tempted to start down this dark path. Well, my coworker's son would like to build a nice system at some point, but his priorities are elsewhere for now.

I'd like to have people over more regularly when I move my system into the basement. I think I'll be able to fine-tune the sound a lot more, and I'll have more room for seating, so it will be easier to have movie nights. But yeah, I kind of wish I had some local friends who were as into the hobby. I think it would be more fun to play with all of this stuff with other people.

Nice new avatar, by the way.

Would be nice if they started shipping the vp-180 before the 31st as my new xpa-3 is waiting to power up this puppy .

It's great validation when other people love your system as much as you do, isn't it?
