I remember when I was a teenager and would put the speaker facing each other about 3 feet apart. I'd crank-up some Judas Priest and lay on the floor between them.
Pardon me..... did you just say something???

I remember my old Kenwood Towers.

They made ya feel like you were really at a Black Sabbath concert. I even got the not-so-wise idea to get an AC conversion kit for my first car and popped them suckers in the trunk and drove around with speaker wire hanging out the windows going to the trunk. With my receiver and CD player in the passenger seat. Bumping Ice T no less.

Ah, to be young again.

I get that a lot don't know why , but you know speakers don't get replaced as often as a display. Besides I can always place an extra screen in another room. So I just decided to go all out on my speakers while i save for the Kuro.

Lovin the speakers they look like they'll pack some damn nice bass nice to see I'm no longer the only one with a not quite so incredible setup (i.e. not a 20ft screen) lol.
Yup an old ass Pentium 4 due for an upgrade . They do, left 300 blasting when I first got them to pick up my cell from the car and I could hear the rumbling 4 floors down on the GF. Well slowly we'll get there I have bug aspirations in the world of HT. I also face the crazy prices as Lebanon also falls under the PAL territory and we get most our stuff exported from you guys. I have yet to buy a BD locally they sell the damn things at $45 a piece. A BOGO during the holidays broke the $40 barrier but I did not bite as all my stuff is region 1 bought from the US.

Did you see them a couple years back when they played Budakon (not sure if I spelled it right)? Halford can still belt out the tunes.

I never saw them in concert. Have been a fan of them since Rocka-Rolla album, then Sin After Sin, Sad Wings of Destiny (my fav).. then when they went too commercial, I left them behind.

Rock-on MF. Is that he extended live LP with Starbreaker?
JP was my favorite band in my teen years, seen them 14 times!
Would travel out of town and see them more than once on their tours.

Here's the back cover of the LP. It's the original release, got it as soon as it hit the shelves.
