Have you seen this new invention? It is the Lanmodo Pro. It covers your car protecting it from bird droppings, falling debris, hot sun, snow and ice and even hail. It looks like a great idea for most situations but for snow you still have to brush the snow off of the unit itself and … Read More

As if the itunes, Pandora and Spotify wasn’t enough for you… now you can listen to Hall and Oates on any phone line. There is a phone number you can call that lets you choose which Hall and Oates classic song you want to instantly hear…. over the phone. Oh yeah… the number is 719-266-2837
That is VERY good thinking!
Letchworth State Park, in NY is known for its beauty and fall foliage. We were there recently and found this note someone had left for an old friend. I am sure they would be happy to know it was read by many. Scroll down to read the note:
I had not been to the Speaker Shop in Amherst Ny in quite a while. Like maybe 20 years. I’m not really sure. I found myself driving by today so I took a few minutes to have a look. They even invited me upstairs to look around in the ultra high end area. Downstairs in … Read More
Some great info on setting up a listening room. Speaker placement, wall treatments etc. Basic, but good info.
This is a really cool video about setting up a dedicated listening room.
Here is a classic video about Infinity Speakers. Infinity Speaker Technology Explained – Video Features the Classic Infinity Speaker Model Line of the late 80’s when Infinity was still run by the two Original Founders Arnie Nudell and Cary Christie!
Pics from our day trip to Letchworth State Park.
Lots of people wonder why Johnny Cash always dressed in black. Well did you know he wrote a song that explains exactly why he did it? Check it out below.
This has been a multi year process for me. We let our basement get REALLY bad. It was piled up with junk and partially torn apart to expose the heat ducts and pipes for service… This is what it looked like before I started the theater. We had some plans for finishing it so … Read More
Here they are stamping in the pattern to the concrete and adding the color variation. The finished product.
The the flexible form was put in place and stone fill dumped in. The stone was leveled and ready for concrete.
We had this horrible front porch when we moved in. It looked home made, the concrete was all broken and flaking, the bricks were all uneven and busted. It had to go. So the contractor started busting it out. After it was ripped out they built a retaining wall (you can see it in … Read More
Here are some of the pages of the 1982 Tech HiFi catalog. They did a great job of showing their products being used and offering something at every price point. I just about wore this catalog out in 1982. (These pages are being shared under Fair Use and we do not own the information … Read More
I just added this stainless steel cooking grate to my fire pit install over the weekend. It was custom made by my cousin who is a welder. I was just going to set it on the block but he hooked me up with an adjustable height system. It works “GRATE”!
This is not my handi work. A few years back we had our front porch redone with stamped concrete and the contractor suggested a decorative wall and post. In our case it was not really retaining anything. Just more of a divider. We said sure and here is how it came out. … Read More
This is the back of the Tech HiFi catalog, listing all of their locations.
I have been saving this since 1982. I looked at this just about everyday as a teenager.
I believe this came with the Kg2’s I bought from a friend. (This brochure is show for education purposes only under fair use. We do not own the copyright to this manual)
In 2012 we took a 22 day road trip across country from Buffalo to California and back. This day was one of the highlights of the trip. (the “today” mentioned in the images was actually in July of 2012) We do not own any of the screen shots from the show. They are used here … Read More
This was a refoam job I did on my Infinity Kappa 6. I would guess they were about 20 years old at the time. I had not used the speakers in a while and they were in the basement. I was mortified when I first saw them. These were the only tools needed after getting … Read More
Not sure these count as vintage but they are great speakers. I have these hooked up to my computer in my office. Have had them about 10 years now. They sound terrific. My only complaint is the switch on the front to shut them off is very cheesy feeling.
I had wanted one of these set ups REALLY bad as a kid. Stumbled on it at the thrift shop not long ago. Works pretty well but the left channel seems to be out. So I am running 2 speakers from the right.
Got these a few years ago. had them outside for a while, then we resided the house and have not hung them back up yet. I was not super happy with the sound from these. Have to give them another try.
This was my basement set up while in High School. A friend and I had a mobile DJ system and we set up this “home radio station” set up in the basement. Lots of hours of fun down there.
I literally used to buy these by the case.
This was my audio set up in my bedroom as a teenager. I built the rack and the speaker stands as well as the accessory shelf on the wall. That is a realistic reel to reel (made ny Teac), Technics SA-222, Speakers were Pioneer HPM-900, Turntable Technics SL-10 (hard to see on the bottom of … Read More
I got these Klipsch KG2’s sometime in the late 80’s – early 90’s. They were perfect. Just the right size, they pack an incredible punch. Really enjoyed them greatly. But I just had too many speakers and something had to go. I sold them about 10 years ago now. Miss them often.
This is incredible. one of the scariest and encouraging things I’ve seen in a long time. People didn’t wait around for help to arrive. They were the help. great job.
This is a case and dash mount kit combined. I have had several other dash mounts that clip into the heater vents but they always break or are very hard to get in and out. This one is so simple, so far I love it. No moving parts. Super easy to use and holds better … Read More
