    How many times do you have to exchange your rekkids before they meet your expectations? >:)

    Yeah, I've had some I had to exchange because of a defect and a few I had to flat out return, but records weren't obsolete before they even hit the market and sure as heck won't be obsolete 6 months later.

    Sort of like 2A3 vacuum tubes. :)

    Geez, I really am turning into a grumpy old man -- but, upon refection, I do have an excuse today. :|

    I can sez "mono poley" uhcuz muh bruthaz playd dat sheeep til 4 inna moanin

    And this was back in the late 60s when even a single kilowatt hour of unnecessary electrical consumption was not only disallowed, but a local, state, and federal offense.

    And don't even think about calling anybody whose number requires more than 5 spins of the dial, mister.

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Those soundbars don’t seem to do that automatically, so I would have to do it myself. :p

    So I decided not to try a 3rd Auris and went with the Project Bluetooth Box-E instead. Running it now, so far no BT connectivity issues! Sound quality comparable to the Auris, as I did quick A/B before I boxed the BluMe up.
