    C-1 Karma

    WOW, what a wonderful karma. Call it a "Dual Karma." John for the core unit and shipping, and Dennis for the refresh. Unbelievable! OK, temptation has me smitten. I'll go in with 58.

    Dim Bulb Tester,... anyone?

    I pulled a few 3-way bulbs like that out of service. I may save those, and hold onto them. I have not found a 3-way 30-60-100 LED bulb,..., but I haven't looked that hard.

    This made me laugh. Out loud.

    This guy does have a good delivery... (Thank you Mark for starting this thread - need more humor !) Along the lines of spam mail, I caught this one this afternoon - I've thought of writing a similar script..., but it's more telling of the level of service that passes for "customer service" these days... No AI here, for sure.

    Dim Bulb Tester,... anyone?

    Anyone need a dim bulb tester? I just replaced about 150 light bulbs with LED's. I'm behind the curve... I was a laggard, because: I'm cheap, waited for price to drop. Wanted dimmable LED's. Simplicity to get rebate - Costco had a sale..., gave the ComEd power company rebate at the register. (6 60 watt dimmable LED bulbs for $1.99 out the door!) I wanted to do it all at once... so I could see a direct month-to-month impact on my electric bill. We'll see about that last one... Now, what to do with all these... Everything I read says to put them in the garbage. Nothing recycling stations want?? Or, like vinyl, will the have value someday?

    I have those speakers, in black. I love them. I paid $500 about 5 years ago to a guy that got divorced, and couldn't fit them in his new man-cave apartment. With the amp they are worth it, in my opinion. I have a CT-23. Nice pre-amp, often overlooked as a good entry point for stereo. Of the later pre's, I like this one - but they bring only $50 to $100 on ebay, when they come up. You may like it. Ask the guy if he has "cables"..., often overlooked in ads, guys that put $5000 in a system, a while back, may have purchased some high-end cables. And, having them thrown in, is the only way I'd suggest paying money for "high end" cables... ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜Ž You can always sell that too, as a way to justify the expense. WAF? I think it's just a matter of framing this to get what you want..., these speakers have a much better WAF than say, the big baffle Amazingsโ€ฆ maybe that's your angle ! ๐Ÿ™„ Or tell her you are going to "flip" the units..., for profit, then put them in your chain, and โ€ฆ, well..., time passes. Yes, I'm an enabler...
