    Introduction

    Howdy. Came across your forum while searching info on my 25 year old Klipsch Heresy speakers. I browsed the boards & liked it so much I decided to register.

    My name's Rick & I live outside San Diego.

    Back in the day I was a lightweight audio enthusiast. Now that I'm 51 & have pretty much trashed my hearing with much too loud Motorhead, Judas Priest & Sabbath I can get along without the latest & greatest. Marriage & my fishing habit ensure that I couldn't afford it anyway...

    I smile & nod when someone sez LP's sound better than digital...

    Too much bass sounds like schiznit...

    I would let Shannon Curfman abuse me...

    This is my idea of fun...

    Gonefishin...

    ...meet Fishslayer...Fishslayer meet gonefishin...don't worry he's around here somewhere...

    Haven't been fishing in 40+ years...Always found gettin' up at no-O'clock in the morning, eating breakfast at a diner, the soggy lunches and tepid soda much more fun than the actual act...My father and uncle would strap the ol' Evinrude to a rented skiff, pick up a bucket of killies and a block of frozen squid and off we'd go! Seagulls and sea robins (which would become chum to the sea chanty of "@**#&!(#)@&#* sea robins") and the occasional hit from a less than wary fluke and the day was complete...

    "I can get along without the latest and the greatest"--I bet. I would imagine you're doing just fine with those Hereseys

    Welcome to the forum!
    So, I broke into the palace

    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    Welcome to AR fishkiller. Great catch there. Did you keep it or toss it back?
