What i meant was that if i would have seen them and realized that they are of low quality i would have not played them at a high volume.

They were sounding good only at high volumes thats why i said that i would not like to see them now, ignorance is bliss u know .!

That said, everything sounds good in isolation. As and when you feel the need to upgrade, listen to some good speakers in your car and you will know what you've been missing all this while.
Steeroid, What I think gunbir was trying to say is that dont change anything just for the aprroval of TBHP''s ICE section change becuase you can hear a difference. I agree 100% that speakers should be heard and not seen. Thats is exactly why i find those Red Sonys so annoying.

I also think 9826 is better than the 43-45s. But why would Honda like to push more of 43-45s?? I think the 43-45s are expensive than the 26-27s! Or am I wrong?
Th 26 and 27 are better than the 43 and 45 although the cost about the same. It is a long sordid story. Unfortunately Honda tried to cheat the wrong mother.

What Barrista/Starbucks serve is very average. Cafe Coffee day is marginally better.

You can get much better coffee from many cheaper places.

1. Fatima's in Kodaikanal will sell you pre roasted Arabica or Peaberry. If you give them 1 days motice and advance payment they wil even give you a custom roast. I usually get a bag of Peaberry dark roast and another of medium roast. each bag is 500gm.
Coffee Board of India - Handbook - Planters


2. India Coffee Hoiuse in mumbai will sell you a medium roast with a minimum of chicory. For rs. 70 for 500gm it is unbeatable for value. esp if you are going to use it for flavoured coffee (Hazelnut, Vanilla, etc...).

3. My favourite is Kona coffee flown in from Hawaii (I order from the Bad *** Coffee company). It is expensive but they have excellent service. John and Yocinda are great and even throw in a few complemetaries for regular customers. The Bad Ass Coffee Company of Hawaii

4. I also order Panamanian Esmarelda, Costa rican Tarazu and Guatemala Antigua from Pete's coffee in San Francisco. I find Jamacian Blue Mountain to be overrated. They do not do international orders so I have to ask friends to carry it.

5. Kenyan, Javan, Sumatran and Arabian coffee i find has has limited use. Yes one does lvoe a cup of these usually as an after dinner jolt but for a morning cup the ones listed above are nicer.

So audio isn't the only thing you are crazy about huh?

I had an idea it (the Honda-Alpine debacle) must have had something to do with your Mom's NHC.

To talk about Coffee....Baristta is actually quite bad ... A new chain has entered India BARNEY's ( available at PVR SPICE ,NOIDA ) ..which is quite passable...
South Indian Filter coffee beats any of the cofee chains any day.. Unfortunately at home Nescafe Instant is all that I know how to make.....guess ill need some sort of brewing contraption or an espresso machine or soemthing....

OT : most certainly agree. some of the vegetarian restaraunts here & down south serve the best coffee that you could ever have. and they cost only Rs.5/-.

we going off topic, and i understand sam's busy as ". Fatima's in Kodaikanal will sell you pre roasted Arabica or Peaberry. If you give them 1 days motice and advance payment they wil even give you a custom roast. I usually get a bag of Peaberry dark roast and another of medium roast. each bag is 500gm."
that name and kodai and that weight would have tempted an decent man

HOnda OE speakers may weigh 100gm?

Ref: ICE from Honda.
I am afraid Rags I dont like to bad mouth anyone so the gory details will be left out. Not even Honda. I just put this up as a "Head's Up" so that that you guys can be sure of getting the better ICE from Honda. Remember they are NOT suppsoed to charge you extra either the 9843 and 9826 cost about the same!

Ref: Coffee
Geez guys this was just a "first dip", I grind and french press a fresh pot every morning at 6:30am. Ground coffee should not be kept too long, it looses it's flavour. Now just dont get me started on wines, cheeses, choclates, and other cullinary delights. Other mods will be tempted to ban me then.
