    heh that's what you think...cost me $30 to send a 3Lb video card to a place just outside of LA from here in the Vancouver area...international shipping is a killer man.

    I doubt it...I'd need a sponsor and all that jazz plus the paperwork to actually do anything down there would be too much lol.

    I'll sponsor ya....kinda like AA right ? :) Seriously, that Butler car amp would be worth some extra shipping charges or a drive over the border to a fellow Polkie's house to pick it up.

    Actually, the withdrawals and whatnot didn't affect me that badly. It surprised me as I got through the worst of it ok and so did those around me...except for that one idiot at work that I managed to duct tape to a hoist a few times :D

    Nothing against the South side of Chicago, but the Southwest side or West side would be an adventure as well.

    @Clipdat I'm not seeing a violation with that post, unless I missed one? There's a link, but it appears to be just a blog... he's not selling anything.

    I recall Xtant being a major player the the SQ scene back in the day... And you can still get them! Class A/B to boot.

    It's a first post and it just reeks of cleverly disguised foreign spam. Especially with the way it's written and how the link is made to be on "subwoofers up to 12-inch size".

    I'll admit it's written oddly, but still... English might not be his primary language?

    And... ? If my phone would let me, I'd embed links too. Sometimes it just keeps the flow.

    Or are we not allowed to embed? I can't so it won't make a difference to me.
    If I missed something in the rules, please advise.

    It's just a link to a generic spammy site. Probably makes money on click-throughs/page views/banner loads, etc.

    Fair enough, I concede the line of inquiry.

    Bact to the OP! (Feeling a little lazy, so if this is a duplicate suggestion...) Soundstream comes to mind (old school again, I know, but hey, if it's good stuff...)
