I literally don't even know what that is.   Based on the picture I'm wondering why they are selling tickets to see an itinerant farmer.

I know what you mean about LEDs.  My ceiling cans are quartz incandescent.

After some experimenting I've found bias lighting is NOT for me. The LED lights, even on a dimmer, are just too harsh and bright. Instead I've settled on placing some LED candles on top of speakers and on shelf above the tv. They add just enough soft glow vs no lights at all.

If anybody else is looking to cut the cord, this eBay seller is selling used $80 tuner dongles for $10 each.   At that price, it's pretty painless to experiment.   I thought about buying two.

nice price

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.
