I know I'm not on here a lot anymore, but wanted to throw this up so everyone was aware.  Kingman was a big comic relief here and everywhere else, and he will be missed.

Thanks guys, I miss him too.

And yeah, Kingman had a family.  A girlfriend, a son, some granddaughters who he had his picture taken with every day it seemed.  He was a family man.  And had a shit ton of pristine Carver gear.  A bunch of CRM2's, M400 cubes, sunfire gear, Phase Linear turntable too I think.  AL-3's were his primary speakers.  His house was a treasure trove of Carver gear.  And a GTO Judge in the garage.

Wayne was always a pleasure to be around and I thought very highly of him. His passing saddens me. My sincere condolences to his family.

RIP good sir, RIP

nice price
https://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/ele/d/pittsburgh-klipsch-heresy-ii/7060353959.html

From ad... "When new were $450 each."   When was that?   1979?

I have the same speakers in birch and love them.   I paid $250 in factory boxes and felt I did really well (and you know how cheap I am) so even though they are black, I still think that is a pretty good price.
