Jeez, everyone lighten up. I didn't go out of my way to type all this stuff, I had it in a Word document and simply cut and pasted here. I felt it would be a good idea to have an inventory in the event theft or fire left me in replacement mode. I also took a bunch of digital pics for archiving purposes, if I worked in the insurance business I'd have some real doubts whether a claim involving all this stuff was legit. Quite honestly, I found the list of gear almost absurd and found a little humour in it all, if anyone thinks I'm strutting cuz I own 7000lbs of stuff, I think you misintrepreted my intentions. Let's face it, there are $250k two channel systems out there, making any of my systems appear to be a notch above my son's boombox. I also find the mix of gear that makes up anyone's system interesting, to see what stuff working together creates a synergistic sound at a particular price point. 'Nuff rambling, enjoy the hobby, we don't need to create our own cartoon sitcom, the Bickersons. Happy listening all, Jeff. p.s. thinking of a bathroom system, but not sure how a high end turntable would hold up to the steam etc..*g*
This forum is for doing whatever you want, whenever you want, however you want, as long as its related to audio and video. The ONLY exceptions are: no selling in the forums, and no vulgarity/personal attacks. In voicing your opinion, YOU, and not the thread starter came closest to any rules violation.
I applaud the criticism I received on my responses from jeff and snooker. They were straightforward enough to disagree with me and state their reasons. The rest of you who left negative feedback without a reason should follow their examples and use this forum to discuss ideas, even if we disagree. In my opinion, leaving a negative 2 without a reason is a waste of time. Nobody got a negative from me.
I did not dish out any negative votes at all, Snooker, in case you had your eye on me and thanks for being open and outspoken. I prefer that to being shot in the back. I generally stick to my opinion however, ladylike or not. You might say, I am an audiophile, not a lady. (-:...and Chris, sorry if I irked you, I was not violation of rules I had in mind, but like Bruce I thought "so what" about this thread. I apologise,if I should have seriouly hurt anyone's feelings.
KA, now-now, you must have been in a bad mood indeed! Let the children play, even if they should waste server space. We all do sometimes. Cheers.
