Yeah, I'll get into Magnolia home theater (aka Best buy)before I buy. Not opposed to just paying a pro since youse guys aren't the discount cigar forum version of consumer reports I was hoping for. 😁

Never heard the DefTec speakers but one of the wealthier members & a hifi head at the lounge recommended them. As you can dial back the treble in reflective spaces like bathrooms & kitchens & dial up in absorbing spaces like bedrooms & living rooms on each individual speaker.

Never built a hut from the ground up for myself before but I'm trying to make it a decent hut.

There are plans for a walk-in humidor in the basement.

Of course the focus is the back porch since I'll be renting out the herf shed & pool with the old hut.

I have considered annexing the pool & cabana since the new hut will be right next door on the pool side. But the point is to downsize & reduce maintenance πŸ€”

Hopefully I'll be able to buy the hut behind the 2 properties in a couple years when the elderly couple who walks their dog through my land passes on.

I'll have a decent start to a compound I can start my own cult with. Lord willing of course


GREAT frankin’ line!

So what flavor Kool Aid? Think

After blasting the stereo for a couple of hours, I’ve come to the peaceful conclusion that I don’t NEED to buy a more powerful, audiophile-ish integrated amplifier. The plain-Jane Sony receiver did just fine. Even at the loudest listenable volume level, there was no distortion and the amp didn’t clip. Pushing it a little past that resulted in me not wanting to stay in the room for an extended period. The house was filled with the Allman Brothers but I’m rarely gonna pump it up that loud so what’s the point of spending a couple grand for power I’m probably never gonna use? And I’m an old guy that listens to old music that’s recorded on analog tape so β€œhigh fidelity”, like beauty is in the eye / ears of the beholder.

I told my wife that while she was out at the mall, I helped her save maybe $2,000 β€˜cause I decided to not replace the Sony receiver. She didn’t know wth I was talking about so hadda explain what I did while she was gone. She just shook her head and gave me that β€œlook”. Laugh

my hearing has diminished as I age...it would be a waste of money to get an audiophile quality system as I would not be able to discern it from what I have in the man cave...

Yes, another part of the reason not to β€œupgrade”. Too many front row or close to the stage seats at loud rock concerts with ears ringing for a couple days. I KNOW my hearing is impaired. To say or think that I don’t have any hearing loss is just denial at it’s best.

But, I have sat close to my speakers and focused on the tweeters and can definitely hear something. Maybe not 20K stuff but hoping maybe around 15K? 12K? I think the crossover is at 6K so 10K at the very least.

Yes, I’m trying to rationalize my hearing loss so that it’s not that big of a loss. Like I said, denial at it’s best. RollEyes

Better than the look you would've gotten had you spent the $2k

I found an AWESOME $500 ++ SAMSUNG BLUE RAY CD/DVD PLayer tv sound system with remote 2 speakers, a woofer and player in the trash on Monday...
Almost looks like NEW...NO SCRATHES and that clear plastic film that covers the units is still intact...
Fuc*ker works perfectly...
Off to the cabin that thing goes for awesome movie viewing...

Some rich folks have no brains or???
Could care less about what they send to the landfill these days...

Unbelievable.

It's probably bugged w/ audio and video. You know that right?

Why should agents go through the effort to break in and install listening devices when you will carry them through the door and set them up for the FBI?

My cabin had the most sophisticated equipment on earth installed in it for yrs on end...stuff even a professional "electronic bug Guy" couldn't detect...

Like tenth generation alien technology stuff...tiny tiny stuff...

I played them like a fiddle several times...I knew they were there...

I should get a "EGOT" FOR MY PERFORMANCES... for the FBI-SSG TECHNO BOYEEESSS...
(EMMY, GRAMMY, OSCAR & A TONY)
THEY ATE THAT SHIIIT UP LIKE THE GERBIL'S UP YOUR ARSE DO EVERYDAY ( J/K BWUHAHAHAHA)...

NOT QUITE SURE WHAT IS LEFT FOR THEM TO FIND OUT?

OR they just love to grab a straws or needles in haystacks..


I loved the time my girlfriend and I saw the movie
"American Hustle"....they were all confused as to who Tommy was....one agent " who is this Tommy guy?"
He asked loudly on the way out...

Well, just ask the shinbet...u dumb felon murders
& See what answer you get ???
They'll prolly reply..."go ask avoraham bender...if you can reach him"

Bwuhahahaha!!! πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€πŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ€―πŸ€―πŸ€―πŸ€―πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€β˜ΉοΈβ˜ΉοΈβ˜ΉοΈβ˜ΉοΈβ˜ΉοΈπŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ€¬πŸ‘ΉπŸ‘ΊπŸ‘ΉπŸ‘ΊπŸ‘ΉπŸ‘ΊπŸ‘ΉπŸ‘ΊπŸ’€β˜ οΈπŸ’€β˜ οΈπŸ’€β˜ οΈπŸ‘»πŸ‘»πŸ‘»πŸ‘»πŸ‘»πŸ’©πŸ™ˆπŸ™‰πŸ™Š

I just hope we can still get the signal outbound if he takes it to a cabin. We may have to put a repeater nearby.

Rammie....#63

Some day...maybe....

Believe me.... they'd hear about it somehow and PUT THE IMMEDIATE K.I.B.O.S.H. ALL OVER IT ....

QUICKLY !!

WHEN those FBI-SSG GUYS GET PISSED, YOULL KNOW IT VERY QUICKLY....AND WHEN THEY WANT YOU TO KNOW SOMETHING THEY DONT APPROVE OF...THEY WILL TELL YOU IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS....

TRY AND GOOGLE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THE
SPECIAL SURVIELLENCE GROUP DIVISION of the FBI...

YOU WILL FIND ONLY ONE ARTICLE IN EXISTENCE...

ONLY ONE...

ITS A fluff piece by a magazine that barely scratches the surface of what they do...ABOUT A UNIT OF AGENTS IN NYC IF I RECALL CORRECTLY?
( It may be WIRED MAGAzine ? But wire doesn't do fluff pieces unless they are threatened...)

The government wants ZERO KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE
FBI-SSG DIVISION IN THE PUBLIC REALM...

AND I MEAN Z.E.R.O....


H.D. #62...
My cabin is like FARADAY CAGE....Massive thick walls that will stop a .50 caliber...And any electronic signal...they had a local repeater hidden somewhere outside....
