    Life Update - Overdue as Hell

    Kevin! Wow. I haven't been around for so long. Good to see some familiar faces still! (I know, I'm kinda necro-posting, but sticking to the most recent threads.)

    Old Alumni seeking to reconnect, still mainly on xbox

    Hey Armi! I know this isn't real recent, but long time, no see! I'm still an Xbox-er. I have a 1X, though I haven't been playing games much on it lately.

    Pretty good pk. Aside from a mental breakdown, quitting my job of 20 years and starting my own business things are pretty much the same. Yeah, a lot has been going on in my life the last couple of years. I never in a million years thought I'd be doing something like this. Kinda scary, kinda fun. Home inspection is the business. HIP is the name of the company. Partnered up with a friend of over 20 years. This is our Web page. https://hiphomehelp.com

    Too rich for my blood too. You reach a point of quickly diminishing returns in that price range. How ya been pk?

    Oh yeah, sounds amazing. I have 2 more speakers behind me for surrounds. They're a match for the one in the middle in those pics. They're all from SVS' Ultra line of speakers. Like I said, I haven't added to it for quite a while now. I simply can't afford to make a significant upgrade from what I have now. It'd cost stupid money to do it. Last year I got to listen to a pair of B&W speakers that sell for about 20 grand for the pair.

    Thanks pk! Tho some things have evolved since I last posted here... Now I think we could say I've gone apeshit! I'm done now tho. Haven't bought any new equipment in a while now. I wish I could share just how good it sounds. I bought a miniDSP and a microphone and figured out how to take measurements and make adjustments. I have smooth, even bass throughout the listening area and everything is as close to being perfectly balanced as I could get it. Right now I'm running a grand total of about 5000 watts between my amp and subwoofers. Watching movies is like being in the theater. To keep on topic... For some reason this band caught my attention a while back. They did some live acoustic stuff and tbh the singer kinda sucks, but I like watching this video. Pretty heavy song.

    I did not! I think it's awesome that he's still around and relevant. Very cool. And thanks. it took me a couple years to put that all together. The guys on the Audioholics forums helped me a ton. It's by far the nicest system I've owned. 2 Hsu VTF-3 MK5 fifteen inch subwoofers with variable tuning and eq settings (600 watts RMS, 2000 watts peak, each) Pair of SVS Ultra bookshelf/stand speakers (a little big for a bookshelf). Denon AVR X1100W receiver with 4k pass through and all the current surround codecs Pair of Promonitor 1000 surround speakers Custom speaker stands made by yours truly

    on a side note, and somewhat related to the topic, I just upgraded my home theater. went a little apeshit, but I love music and now it sounds so good! this is what what I got: 2 of these https://www.svsound.com/products/sb-1000 a pair of these https://www.svsound.com/products/ultra-bookshelf and a new receiver. https://usa.denon.com/us/product/hometheater/receivers/avrx1200w by far the best system I've ever had. those bookshelf speakers are nothing short of amazing. they're studio monitor and reference grade speakers. and paired with 2 subs... holy shit. I still have he deftech promonitor 1000's for my surround. this sounds amazing on my system. can you tell I'm stoked?

    yeah, it's holy shit. my son is now 18. things are settling down and he's manning up. still in school, straight a's and working almost full time. his girlfriend had a falling out with her parents so she's living part of the time here and most of the time with my in laws. makes babysitting much easier. the baby was born august 1st and his name is... august. happy, healthy and looks great. I'm still pretty pissed off at the whole thing, but like I said, he's handling it. so there's a little bit of pride mixed in with my anger over it.
