Speakers are an older set of bose acoustimass, left/right and surround still have great sound but my center is driving me nuts. Am i using the wrong mode on the receiver? Or should I buy a different center channel???

Sounds like receiver mode to me unless you have some reason to believe that the center channel used to work and no longer does

Center channel is working. Must be a receiver setting somewhere

Usually music settings will kill or turn down the center channel, where TV settings will have it be the main output. I’d try to find a manual for your receiver. Worth also just confirming the connection is tight and +/+ -/-.

Which model receiver?

What do other partners take as unreimbursed partnership expenses? I have heard some say they do nothing (because it isn’t addressed in the partnership agreement) but others say they take quite a bit (if there is an expense policy manual that disallows it). My read of the law is the latter is the correct read.


Accountability correlates with Responsibility in this way: When a person accepts personal responsibility for how his/her actions and decisions impact and influence the lives of others, said person holds him-/herself accountable and accepts being accountable to others for the equity and inclusion (or lack thereof) in their spheres of influence.

Take a minute and picture the country with Joe Biden at the helm. Imagine him communicating with world leaders. Imagine his addresses to the nation or his ability to pull together a cabinet. If you’re okay with him being a puppet of the Dems with others calling the shots behind him, go ahead and vote for him. I can’t, in good conscious, cast my ballot for someone who is clearly unfit in many ways. Before you jump in and say Trump is unfit or racist, I consider him to be the lesser of two evils
