His reasons are as valid as any. Enjoying the hobby is what it's all about.


I sincerely hope he knew I was joking. BTW, OP, I also love Curb Your Enthusiasm.

I knew you were joking. Just an oppurtunity to poke some fun.

I had a hard time adding them up too. Couldn't get it to balance out.

I have 4 that I'm not using, up for sale. Yet I have 14 - 3 = 11 - 7 = 4 - 2 = 2. Should have 4 left over. (Oops forgot about the M2 and M3s).

Bought 2 M22 bookshelf = 2
Bought 2 M22 in/on wall = 4
Returned 2 M22 in/on wall = 2
Bought 2 M22 on wall = 4
Bought 1 VP100 in/on wall = 5
Bought 2 M3 bookshelf for a gift = 7
Gave the M3's away = 5
Bought 1 VP150 in/on wall = 6
Bought 1 EP175 = 7
Returned 1 EP175 = 6
Bought 1 EP350 = 7
Bought 1 M2 real wood = 8
Bought 1 VP160 in cabinet = 9
Bought 5 M22 bookshelf = 14
Sold original 2 M22 bookshelf = 12

Wow, that's a lot of transactions. It's called keep fiddling with it until you get it to sound just right. And I haven't even got to the surrounds yet. I'm prolly on my 6th blu-ray player, and 2nd receiver, and 3rd universal remote.

After about 1 year of use the loading and playing mechanism get sluggish in use. Other than that, they are usually good players, although I'm glad to get rid of a one of them with problems.

Panasonic BDP-30
Panasonic BDP-60 (the one with problems)
Panasonic BDP-210
Sony BDP-500
OPPO BDP-93

I've given the first 4 away to a good home.

I guess there has been 5. I plan on buying an OPPO BDP-103 sometime soon.

HTPC is the way to go IMO. Rip your Blurays to disk and watch. It does however cost more (for storage space) and does take a good bit of computer know how.

Good reason. I was expecting something about not being comfortable buying sight unseen.

When I started my search, I really wanted a pair of Paradigm Studio 40s. Do did everyone else.

On the whole I got a great deal here. bought the speakers, got the forum thrown in for free. wink

Funny you mentioned Paradigms. I came here because I'd heard a set of their Signature S8's with the matching centre and surrounds in a high end shop. Was blown away by how much better they sounded than what I owned. Then I was even more blown away when I asked what the system would cost!

I ended up poking around the used market but was still surprised at the typical used asking price. Then I came here. Too bad I arrived just a few months before the new LFRs were announced! Anyway the M80's were excellent though it is hard to tell if they were fully as good as the S8's. Now with the LFRs and an ADA1500 it may be even better! I need to revisit that shop for another listen...

And the forums here are truly a great bonus!

Happy weekend everyone!!

I used to buy local as well until I found out I was paying way to much for a name brand, and realized that my Axioms sound better than speakers costing much more. I get better customer service and not as much BS from salesman that don't have a clue.
