    Political memes posted as fact and accepted as fact, are sign language of the ignorant, for the ignorant

    Not Tom, or Trey, or Jim
    NAD C352
    Monitor Audio Radius R90’s/Mission Freedom 770 IV
    BJC speaker cables, generic RCA’s, one homemade power cable, because that’s going to do any good with the rest of the generic ones.
    Technics SL3200 turntable and a Shure M97xE phono cartridge
    Velodyne VA-907 subwoofer
    Lafayette LR-1100 acting as a tuner and phono.
    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'.

    100 years old and it hasn't caught fire yet! B)

    Goes to show you, some designs just work right forever.

    Makes me think of that light bulb in that Firehouse that still burned for over 100 years I think. It might still be burning bright.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.
