    Yep and was selling a boat load of his tube stash the last few months. I really cried when i watched the pair 5692's go for a very very reasonable price.

    Yeah, and maybe cable naysayers will try aftermarket speaker cables and power cords.

    That's a good list, Tom. Heck, *you're* not around here like once-upon-a, but it's been nice seeing you post more of late.

    Rich (SCompRacer) checks in but doesn't post as much as he once did, I'm lucky to be able to see him IRL from time to time.

    I am still here just dont come around much. Work is pretty consuming.

    Last month some guy sent me a message about Anthem Preamp schematics. I tried finding them for him but it was over 10 years ago and could not locate them.

    A long list of names I have not heard in a while. Good to see there are some regulars still around.

    Club Polk is still the best audio forum in my opinion.

    Just PM me if you need something or to say hey.

    Preamp: Joule Electra LA-150 MKII SE

    I have to say that I saw a post from 2006 that was saying the exact same thing about "tap-dancing around the minefield" so to speak, so it appears that sentiment's not entirely new, although often in the moment it appears to be so. Sometimes things "get going" around here but its still the only audio forum that I want to come to on a regular basis. There's a ton of good people here that give of their knowledge freely and that's who we really are.

    Agreed... It's just that these days, there are more mines in the fields and now there are sniper teams lurking everywhere. You also need to watch out for the air support and drones that fly in and do their damage and disappear.

    Many of the new members who joined after around 2008 probably never saw the "Tasteful Babe Thread". There was a lot of drama when the offended became activists.

    Yep and the social justice warrior left immediately after the thread was removed. Polk got played once again.
