    Man I'm so blessed
  • @tonyb the problem is the people not the topic. It would be a ban of the offender if they start personal attacks against other members.

    There is nothing wrong with lengthy debates. AS LONG as they are on topic to that discussion.
    @rooftop59 I don't think we need to have a rule about cable debates. I think the rule for cable debates should be to remember we all have different ears and to treat everyone with respect.

    AMEN o:)

    I'm allergic to peas and most legumes.
    ..... which doesn't make me an anti-legumite, but still ... I'm allergic to peas.
  • F1nutF1nut Posts: 37,329
    Does that make you a pea shooter?
  • F1nutF1nut Posts: 37,329
    That would make a great avatar.

    Used I/Cs like this pair for quite a while -- hand crafted using only the finest 30 gauge magnet wire & "RCA" plugs from the late, great Radio Shack.

    (one of those twisted pairs has gotten kinda untwisted in storage, derp)

    Godspeed, Radio Shack ;)
  • mrbigbluelightmrbigbluelight Posts: 7,027
    The Radio Shack catalog wasn't quite up there with the Heathkit Bible but I'd rank it ahead of the Sears catalog. I'm talking before RS turned into the cellphone and AA battery store.

    1) yes -- me, too ;)

    2) as perusal of www.radioshackcatalogs.com will quickly reveal, there was a time that R/S was actually a pretty serious resource for hifi.

    e.g., from the 1964 catalog:

    ... or 1961:

    Imagine strollin' into the ol' Radio Shack down at the mall & pickin' up an MC-225 and a pair of Duplexes...

  • mhardy6647mhardy6647 Posts: 13,897
    Actually -- and FWIW -- I think that Allied set the bar for mail order hifi and cool electronic stuff in general BITD (as they say). :)

    1962...

    I think I'm gonna fill out the order form & send it in -- who knows? Maybe the USPS'll forward the order to a wormhole & I'll get a delivery...
