Wow those are high end beauties. I wish I could get your bike (RH), jealous. I need to get a new helmet. I threw mine away after the storm and should have kept it. It was new in the box all I had to do was clean it. Man I regret some of the stuff I threw out that I could have kept, oh well...Thanks for sharing JB.

Well I went and did it. Long story short I looked at Rojo's signature and saw he had some Butt shakers and asked him about it. I always thought they were a gimmick and never considered them, low and behold I bought a pair after Rojo's encouragement. I bought a pair Auras and the seller threw in the Aura receiver(for car only)on CL for less than 35(Auras are 50$ each on PE) bucks. What a great deal. :) I hooked them up last Sat. and played with them a little with Fuzz's Demo BD's and these thing are fun. WOTW, Pulse, Star Wars, etc gave me a good Bass couch workout. I'm happy I got them. These will be used for my action movies from now on. Special Thanks to Rojo for the help.
Hooked up to to the Parasound Amp:

They are attached to this thin board:

No it does not rattle it's on there tight and thumps nicely:

Thanks Willis.:wave:

Well put up the 100(really 92 inch and huge in my tiny apt.) screen in the afternoon yesterday and I must say it looks amazing.:yahoo: I thought that I would never own a PJ, but with Fuzz thread it made me wonder if I should get one? They have come down in price, so I thought hey why not? I found one on ebay refurb for a great price. The DVD's(Shakira) don't fare as well on a large screen(50-60 inch it looks amazing), but looks decent if you are a bit back in your chair. The SQ on the BD of course is great though. Now the Stevie Wonder BD Live In London looks AMAZING.:clapping: I moved up closer and the PQ/SQ was amazing. It shockingly just breath taking. I can't wait till my family comes over to check it out. The 3D demo from AVS that Fuzz suggested looked amazing and had me ducking, lol.:eek: I 'd never been to a 3D movies in the theater, only as a kid they had one on TV that was kinda cool, but not great. So I didn't want to waste money on it. Well guess what? I really like it. :) Anyways here are some pics I took yesterday:




As you can see the PQ is really nice, but of course way better in person.

Nice score Joe! Let me know what you think of those speakers. Now that I've published a review on the VTF-3 sub I'm getting asked by people if I'll review those speakers as well.

Hi Jim thanks the HSU's are a keeper. Just as good as the modded AAL Pioneers(Dennis Murphy). Jazz/Salsa horns sound spectacular like never before. :D I wanted to pair them with the SBE-118 Subwoofer, but looks like they are sold out. I think you would love them. I'm always amped up when you do your reviews anyway, so please do it.

I have looked at the HSU speakers on and off for a while now, but for some reason I never reached out to them about a review. I think the current version (MK2) has been out for a few years though, so it might not be as pertinent as it once would have been. Maybe if they release an MK3 I'll go for it.

Shame to hear the SBE-118's are now gone. That was quite a deal. Did Craig officially confirm they're no longer available?

No he never got back to me after he replied to me that they were running low, so I assume they are gone. I sent him another email today hopefully I'll get some news.

I decided to get discrete pair of JBL Leviton AESS5 surround speakers for the PJ setup. Took me about an hour to setup last night. I threw on the Roy Orbison Black & White Live DVD and adjusted it to my liking and boy did the violins coming in from these tiny speakers sound nice.:eek: I placed the speakers upside down to get the tweeter closer to the ear. Incredible little speakers for the price I got them for on ebay. I'm happy.:D
