Engineered Environments is now called VIA....but anyways I have 2 Anthem MRX 310s and 1 MRX 710 in addition to two Devialets and so far the Anthems have been great. I don't think they are made by Onkyo. At the very least their higher end Canadian-made products are not Onkyos.

I had the impression he said Onkyo as he was leaving, but I could have that wrong.
This is all coming from the leftette who had trouble turning on the TV when I was out of town, so now wants the whole fucking house hardwired to her moods. Me? I'd be happy to go back to gas lights and talking to each other.
Metal trim around doors is awful. It's easy to damage, hard to repair -- and you can't tell what's happening behind it. I pulled it off and found that some buffoon had already replaced the bottoms of the door jamb and brickmold, but apparently didn't bother to fix the source of the water infiltration that'd caused them to rot the first time. I pulled the drywall around it (have to do some drywall work anyway from the electrical) and found what looks like an old infestation that's been treated before. Damn them. No serious damage, but it'll end up costing me a couple hundred bucks -- new door, trim, drywall, pesticides, etc. I should treat the whole perimeter of the house while I'm at it. But that was supposedly done about five years ago.
Did it crack because there weren't natural points for it to expand and contract? I have an area that it looks like the previous owner did himself, and it wound up cracking because it was just one large piece. When I had someone come out, they said it would be better to just replace it because it will keep happening.
Agree with the above posters. Cracked concrete patio will just keep cracking more and should be removed and then lay the sand for the pavers. That's like a 2 case of beer job with some buddies and a small dumpster or other type of haul away bag. (depending upon the patio size)
You just sit them right on the concrete, leveling with sand when necessary.
You can do this, but not on top of cracked concrete and not if it doesn't already have the proper slope away from the home. Additionally, you need to install a border course first or else you will see the edges of the concrete. That border has to be bonded to the concrete. Not a small job either way, but doable.
