Music--- and the search continues

Post  fredvon4 on Sun Mar 13, 2016 2:46 pm

Searching through my imported bookmarks (new computer) looking for a search I did some time ago for speaker systems when I was looking to set up the home theater

I seem to remember a site had a very good comparison of computer speaker systems for gamers

Could not find it, but found the link to one of my favorite You Tube videos

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLgJ7pk0X-s

The Good the Bad and the Ugly a very different way then you might imagine.... stick with it this is a fun version

see if you don't think the whistler looks like a young Donald Southerland

I used to use Crutchfields for comparison audio shopping back when I had good ears, just checked em out and its changed.
Great song on the ukuleles, I can still sit through that whole movie even though I've seen it many times.

Logitech z533

Post  fredvon4 on Mon Mar 14, 2016 6:47 pm

Had to make the long trip into Best Buy today for Geek squad to determine that my wife's Samsung Tab S2 power cord was hosed

I asked the Geek tech about computer system speakers and it happens that some customer had bought a set of Logitech z533s and returned then in exchange for a 5.1 system....

Used they were $49 vs the MSRP of $99

Box not opened but they have to discount as NOT NEW

I bought them---- and right now they are ranking out Phil Collins "In the Air Tonight" and sound so much better than the tin plastic 1.75 inch crap I had

Before I go
Hendrix Foxy Lady sounds very good to me with these at 1/2A warp drive

ahhh Phil Collins, he is such a great drummer! that song circles around my head sometimes and others it's Bruce Springsteen Born To Run (epically when I see an unopened Small Cox Logo engine ) lol! and Dancing In The Dark! Very Happy

Jamming

Post  fredvon4 on Fri Mar 25, 2016 1:05 pm

Well as some of you know I got a great deal on a set of powered Logitech speakers 2.1 system with a fairly decent sub

They are crisp and true to my age and Army destroyed ears and although I could use about 1000 more WATTS the do get nice and loud in side my 16 x 24 hanger/building shop

very pleased for the cost

Right now finishing touches on a Ring master listening to Jerry Garciea and "don't let Go" cranked up

caused me to screw up the rudder a little offset the wrong way.

No problem... razor saw the back half of it and torque a bit then medium CA and insta set

The whole flat rudder ( no deliberate rear offset) was very slightly going to make the plane track inward

Rather than cut it off and start over I made a thin slit from the rear to the middle with my razor saw about 1/4" above the stabilizer, flexed it out a bit and CAed it so the back half of the rudder will add the outside circle offset

I have read too many posts on Brother Hood of the Ring and Stunt hanger that most stunt plane do not require off set and that was my goal but I guess jamming to my music hosed that up

I also do not plan engine offset but have several sets of off set wedges for the motor mounts if needed during trim flights

BY the way for a very short time, I have some help (he is moving away at the Army's direction this summer)---anyway my only flying buddy, Sean McEntee, is going to maiden this ARF and get it in trim before he lets me show him my famous figure 9

Some of the new guys may not know two years ago this month I wrecked a NEW Harley and destroyed my body in the process

When I grab the handle it will be a new NO MUSCLE MEMORY event

and also....Kim and I will get to meet one another at the S.M.A.L.L event 2-5 June in Little Rock AR

I really hope many other CEF can find the time for this event....I crave meeting a whole lot of my Forum Friends...such is ole guy desires

Love my wife and dogs but so many of you all are very interesting folks I can not help but believe we should meet and become very good friends

My buddy Rusty is just 60 years young and I plan to pester him soon on his home turf...I have it on good authority (from Ron Cribbs) that RknRusty and wife know how to make a feller feel at home
