    LOL! I haven't plugged them in yet for fear that they aren't wired correctly. I have yet to locate a sacrificial device with an IEC inlet to try them with.

    I may have heard the name of the company coming a few months ago, but honestly can't
    remember. Possibly Amazon? Would they need a 1.43 million square foot data center? That's almost 33 acres of indoor building space. Doesn't really make a difference who, all of the local trades have been working overtime for several years on the other large centers. The two local Google data center's are huge in size too.

    I've run cranes on many of these. They are huge gluttons of power, pay little to no taxes and after completion provide a surprisingly small number of working class jobs.

    I ordered some China special power cables off eBay recently that look similar lol: https://www.ebay.com/itm/254766193366

    I hope they weren't manufactured in Wuhan Labs. I'd stay away from any gear from them.

  • I think it was the model 300 from Sony, it was on J. Gordon Holt's Stereophile recommended components list (level C I think). It came with those two microphones and was imported by Joe Tushinsky as part of Superscope. The legend has it that he wanted a tape recorder company so he could make piano recordings of his famous friends playing at parties.
    Funny the brothers Gibb would have one, I'd love to hear that tape.

    Nope. Gold-plated oxygen free copper, it seems.

    I didn't see it on their site, I seen the silver-plated OFC but not the gold.

    In any case they're cheap at half the price! 😏

    I wanted to frame my first one. :D

    I was so glad I lived long enough to see one. My dad almost saw his first one but passed away while it was being processed or in the mail. In fact, I believe my mom had to send his first one BACK ! >:)

    Now with mine, I just remember around the first of the month's 10 days, another should be in the bank by now. Then I forget about them for a while. They add up quick though. ;)

    I might buy something like an $$$$ amp or $$$ chess pieces set strictly from this account before It's too late for me too. ;)

    Doing some consulting work right now. 3 day work weeks are great!

    I started getting SS when I was 67, but still working. However, I didn’t start the medical part since the work medical was fine. After I retired two years later, it was a big PITA to add the medical part to my SS benefits. First they wanted me to pay a big premium every month for delaying. After I got that straightened out they still reduced my benefits since I made so much while working. Finally, this year my taxable income is mainly my SS income, so I expect my benefits to increase at some point in the future since I can’t be charged the high earner premium for medical.
