Thanks, Harold. I had a terrible June/July /August with work. I really need to retire, so I can do some ''important" work!

Harold:
Carmina Burana. One of my favorite compositions ever! Now I respect you even more than before! (Oh oh...)
I have attended live presentations of Carmina Burana in Seattle, performed by the Seattle Symphony and the Seattle Chorus.
Truly a mind bending experience!
And the history of Carl Orf composing that music is equally fascinating. I've never thought of Monks the same.

I agree. Susan and I had the good fortune to see it performed in Utah, many years ago.

Heh! Flat speaker wire? Like Monster cable?
There's a thriving industry in providing meaningless accessories for sound systems. Some of these folks want the consumer to believe that even the type of insulation applied to the conductor makes a difference. It goes without saying, that borders on the impossible to prove, and it makes no sense, in particular for speaker leads.

I've used a combination of 12 gauge Monster cable along with 10 gauge THHN stranded copper (for long runs). All I know is that sound is delivered, and that's my objective. I've put my money on meaningful components.

The bigger the wire is, the more music can crawl through it!

Operating machines is perfectly safe......until you forget how dangerous it really is!
