    Some thing should never be seen gentlemen... the above is one of them. These pics should be placed with dear leader's college transcripts and birth certificate and never be seen again. :D
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Goldfinger Diamond v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X0.2 three chassis preamp, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Pioneer Elite SC-65, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB700/800 "in-wall" surrounds.

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    He's doing fine, talked to him last night. I was digging through the archives last night searching for some classic pics, but it seems that while converting to vanilla that all the incriminating pics got wiped out of inventory.

    All those old incriminating Polk pics got lost with HC's emails. Maybe they are still alive on some server in an outhouse in Bosnia.

    I don't want this Karma to end... haven't had this much fun reading posts since the Be*ver thread was removed. You all CRAZY!

    Russ and Ron - great gesture. This thread is well worth the $200 you two are putting out there.

    Russ, in case you missed it, I posted WAY back on page one. I picked 64 and asked that it be donated to DSkip. Now that the pot's doubled, same holds true. Should I win, Derek gets it all.

    Will be watching the live drawing tomorrow.
