What are you doing with your tax return?
Like Albertporter et al, I usually wind up paying, although only ~3k. This year I owed $3,600.00 & since I decided to stop operating as an independent, I'm paying my taxes on the installment plan. Of course, the $600.00 rebate went towards the... 
I don't remember much, but I remember......
...buying Please Please Me in 1965. We had just come back from Germany after a 2.5 year stay & I was ready to get my own copy at the ripe ole age of 10. I was living in a little town in Southern Illinois that had a population of ~15k, but don'... 
best budget integrated amp for rock n roll music?
I tried the creek & it went into thermal shutdown. I wound up with a MF XA-1. It plays plenty loud for the bookshelf system it's in. I even moved it into the main system to have a listen & it was respectable. Check out AA like Haoleb menti... 
Who R U?
I've been visiting this site for about a year & thought I would share some of my background. So much to say without writing a short story, so I'll just make it a vignette. I was in Germany '62-'65 so I heard the Beatles pretty much as my first... 
Frustration with buyers who make offer, then don't
Like Mkaes said, feedback should be transaction related only. If somebody left me neg. feedback for other than completing a deal I would not be happy. Also if somebody threatened me like Drrdiamond mentioned, I would be way more than unhappy. I ju... 
Advice on Balanced Cables
I tried the Pythons with a 506.24 using a 4B ST through a Pass Aleph P & found them to be too bright. I also sold the 4B ST as it was too dry. I settled on Stealth CWS, both an RCA & XLR set with the Aleph P using an Aleph 5 & Ayre V-3... 
TOP TEN replies you don't want from your spouse ..
Guess what? The kids & I picked up a new kitten today & it climbed up on your speaker. Um, the scratches in the wood don't look too deep but then Cookie (our older cat) climbed up there with the new kitten and then Honey (our dog) decided ... 
What have you been listening to these five weeks?
I too have been listening to a lot of contemporary Christian music. CFB, 'The Word' I'm familiar with is by Sara Groves on her Conversations CD. Great voice, well produced. Some other great voices are Rachael Lampa, Sara Jahn, Jaci Velasquez &... 
U.S. Postal Service mail delays
Hi again Sarah, ask the buyer to call the Head Postmaster at his local PO for an explanation. Maybe he doesn't have a tuner, no TV & doesn't read the paper. I drive for a mail contract carrier & for everybodys information, any post office ... 
Are you Guys Rich or What!?
Every single piece in my system was purchased used or on auction. Full retail (puhleze!) would be ~$15,000. Actual cash spent is $5929.00. This includes $500.00 to completely upgrade the Pass Aleph P pre amp including all new metal. I work an extr... 
Why so many Flaky Buyers?
This topic really hits the spot!!!I've bought & sold maybe 40 items of audio gear using the net & if I see something that I want RIGHT NOW I'll email or call the seller to make the deal. If I'm not sure about the item I might ask the selle... 
King of High Current Amps
I used to run a set of Adcom 565 mono blocks on a set of Infinity Kappa 8's & they played loud enough that I could wear my earplugs & pretend I was at a concert. I also brought home a Sunfire amp to give it a test drive & it caught on ... 
Better cable substitue's for my system, for silver ic cables
I had a similar problem with my system. The HT Truthlink was very smooth but lacked the detail of the Silway-but the Silway was too bright along with PSS & AQ Python. I settled on Stealth FLR & upgraded to Stealth CWS. A huge difference be... 
Best female vocals on CD
One of my favorite songs is from a relatively obscure singer named Sara Jahn. I first heard the song crucible on a compilation CD put out by a St. Louis rock station. I recently acquired her CD & although the song has changed somewhat, her voi... 
Is the Cassette Recorder Dead?
I have an older pick-up that has the metal dash made for shaft style decks. I could cut a big hole in it & install a CD, but I prefer the original look, which limits your choices to radio only, 8-track or cassette. There are a lot of older veh...
