  • I am album driven and only listen to vinyl at home. In the car it's mp3 albums. On the topic of Pink Floyd I have been listening to them for 45 years now and like all of it. From Meddle, Obscured by Clouds and on is certainly the best . I also feel …
  • I'm back to Quake 3. It's been my relax after work routine for the past few weeks. As always I'm Sarge getting my BFG on!
  • @Thrax said: I was wondering when this thread would get bumped. ......and just so no one forgets.
  • @Linc said: @Mt_Goat said: Put a backup drive in the doghouse! Sounds like what I'd do that if I was trying to hide my backups from the Feds. At least my backups won't end up on the news like some political ca…

  • Here is another thing to be careful of. Never apply for several lines of credit in a short period of time. This is referred to as number of inquiries and more than a few a year can hurt your rating. Because it shows that you are desperate to get cre…
  • Here is my latest hairbrain method. I welcome coments and or criticism on my new method. I call it The Doghouse because I have a doghouse my dog doesn't use and it is a well built insulated doggie home of the highest quality. Since Tank won't use it…
  • Awesome! I still look forward to the day I get to meet @aspieRommel in person. And I will cover a day at the races, fully on me. Except for the hookers and beer.
  • That's how I learned to fix cars. I think it is how most people learn. The big advantage now that wasn't available when I was young, is that now you can YouTube about anything and watch it on your tablet as you go.
  • Get my cone honed more often. Mebs, mebs!
  • Mele Kalikimaka.

  • I got the Scout 1.1 and was bad as I ordered a ZYX R-50 Bloom 2 MC to be set up on it upon arrival. Even i am saying ouch on this one. But I feel it will be worth it. All though I spent more than I wanted, this combination still comes in at less tha…
  • My Denon DP2000 bit the dust a couple weeks ago. So I just replaced it with a vintage factory sealed NIB Denon DP62L I found on fleabay. I will be moving the MC104 to it today. I also want to dive into a new TT. So far I want a VPI Classic but they …
  • In addition to what @Kwitko mentioned, no Pink Floyd collection is complete without "Meddle". Yes "Fragile" and Alice Cooper are essential must haves as well.
  • I agree @Cliff_Forster, because by the time the late 70's rolled around anybody who was into quality systems was switching to direct drive.
  • Oooooohhhhh! Just found a real super duper killer deal!!!! https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00DUER2S6/ref=mp_s_a_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1477102051&sr=8-9&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=denon+turntable
  • I personally would go with a Denon DP300F. Denon has been making quality audiophile disk spinners since the beginning of time. Almost everything they produce is high quality. Then add an Ortofon OM5e cartridge. I may sound opinionated but I have bee…
  • I never thought it while looking at the latest batch on my screen but now after seeing them in this thread is making me wonder. Is my head full of helium or are these really pro looking? I'm not petting myself but it just hit me.
  • IMHO, RTO is risky at best. The contracts are generally shady and usually don't favor the lessor/buyer. As has been stated by others so far, I would rent since you haven't been in the housing market so far. First I think you need to get out on your …
