    Ben Franklin wasn't a president either?? :o

    God, I'm in presidential knowledge DEEP trouble! :s :#

    Yeah, but how many U.S. presidents had stores named after them where you could buy "Planet of the Apes" masks and other toys? :p

    We thought our daughter was a spy for a while. She worked for a very large international company and traveled a lot for work. We noticed that she would go to interesting places for a week, and then, a week or so later, something interesting politically would happen in that same interesting place.

    Of course, we never asked her about it, since, if we were right, she would have had to kill us. :|

    I just had to write 'em, most of the time.
    Nice thing about being an "expert" is one can pronounce something pretty much any effing way one wants to, and most folks will assume it's correct by definition. ;)

    Infinitely more rewarding. :)

    Not the Gov. Type of F.B.I. .

    The pubescent F.B.I. and I got good at it too. :D

    I think I had a buddy that had the T-shirt or I saw it in a Spenser's gag store in the Mall.

    I used Furez from Douglas Connection.

    Yep, I've got the Furez TSTWP38NP Bare Copper Banana Connectors. Love them. I just figure if the 10 gauge Belden wire in the walls is good enough for the audio signal, no sense spending a fortune from the jack to the speaker terminal. I do realize most audiophiles probably don't have their speakers very far from their equipment. My equipment sits on one side of the room, speakers on the other. @machone, is that power cord a Douglas Kit or pre-made?

    The braid and plugs are from Doug. The cable is from VH-Audio.
    Mojo Audio Joule v5>>Quantum Byte w/JRiver 21 and Fidelizer>> Starlight 7 USB >> Marantz SA 8005>> Equinox 7>>
    ModWright SWL 9.0 SE Signature >>Equinox 7>>
    Hafler DH-500 Amp+ (Musical Concepts PA-6 Elite Mod) >>Belden 5000 10 ga cables>>
    SRS 2.3TL (Fully Modified)...SDA-1A (Fully Modified with Dimensional Tweeter Delete)
    1KVA Dreadnought
    Pioneer PLX-1000 Turntable - Shure SC35C/N35X - V15III/VN35HE

    I had a bunch of Chris' (Vh Audio) 12ga power cable on hand here (sheilded & un-sheilded) & decided to try it as speaker cables.
    Its worthy for SC!

    I modded his pc cable design & used 2-14 ga counter twisted grounds instead of a single 12ga. ground wire, & its a KEEPER (12ga drain wire on male side):

    I saw some cables that would look good with a black light.

    I agree, NICE collection of cables.

    Most cable buyers do. You replace one set but still hold on to the previous ones.

    Exactly like a few of us do with electronics and speakers. Only your cable collection takes up a lot less space. ;) B)
