    WTF

    Goodwill
    Pair of Electro Voice CM12-2's
    $50 pair
    Heavy Beasts
    Any experience ?
    Stage speakers? Guitar?
    Response curve 90/18k. Distortion all over the place.
    But Old Cool Look.
    Thoughts Please

    Plus Found this 10" album(1 of MANY)
    Help Not many spins on album No visible scratches, Minty
    Heard Japanese LP's Were Special? =$$$$

    Feedback is knowledge.

    And last, is this site SLOW, or is it just me?

    went to demo them with my Nano, noticed plug was a bit short

    prior owner broke it off ... will either put a new plug on or wire in a complete cable .... more projects .... but not a bad gamble for < than my lunch taco.
    Also lugged around a bit, until it hit me that it wasn't going to bungie to the bike ... A Dokorder Dub-a-tape.

    don't know ... . Need more ears. used aboard ship where no room for speakers. *

    Use buds all the time when bike riding which is all the time.

    Interestingly enough ..yesterday the OL brought home 2 large storage boxes for ....

    *thinking back about it, in "A" school we were issued big reel 2 reel recorders with headphones to listen to language tapes for homework ... of course we just taped music over the courses.
    1st,2nd & 3rd duty stations were all situations where cans were the only way to listen.

    Bell UH-1 Iroquois

    Started using aboard ship where no room for speakers.

    They had some nice ones for

    “The Ride of the Valkyries” in Apocalypse Now:
    Air Cav Gets Everything.

    Does that scene make you sick? Flying around a Heavily Defended LZ?
    Of course none of that shit goes through HY80
    Plus we don't shoot "Little" Bullets

    not bad, just viewed on Netflix

    Based on the story of the 2000 Kursk submarine disaster, Kursk follows the final hours of an "unsinkable" Russian nuclear submarine as it sinks to the bottom of the Barents Sea. Some of the crew survives the initial explosion, including officer Mikhail Kalekov (Matthias Schoenaerts), whose pregnant wife (Lea Seydoux) and child are waiting back home. Unfortunately, their rescue is complicated by bureaucracy between Russia, France, Norway and Britain, with British navy chief David Russell (Colin Firth) attempting to convince Russian officials to accept foreign aid.
