    WTB - Six M-500t Rack Handles

    Just happened to see this ebay seller Carver NOS parts listing some NOS rack handles and knobs. Doesn't list the ones you are looking for but says he has hundreds of NOS parts. Mark

    I haven't received the email yet, I ordered two back in January. Mark
  7. It's possible, but....... One of the circuit board designers I worked with had the skill and CAD tools to copy a single side board, maybe one of the members has that ability. A board that size might be pretty costly. Mark

    Karma: CT-3 with Remote

    If they are 3" handles, Menards (a home center similar to home depot or lowes) carries black drawer handles for $3 each, and Mouser sells ferrules that fit - the drawer handles are a little thicker than stock Carvers but the largest ferrules fit fine. Mark

    New Vinyl Releases

    I sold my new copy of Abraxas last summer for $386 + 14 shipping. Bought it October 2016 directly from MOFI for $107. When The Nightfly became available I pre-ordered 2 of them, and pre-ordered 2 Bridge Over Troubled Waters. Mark
  11. Mostly hi quality CD's (MOFI, Audio Fidelity, DCC), some hi quality vinyl. Some K2 mastered CD's sound great (ELP, Eagles), some not so great (Bat Out Of Hell), probably depends on how good the original master was. Have a couple SACD's and an older OPPO DV-981 that I haven't listened to very much. Bought a Sony CD changer and recorder in 2006 - it makes a bit for bit copy of any original CD, so my CD's only get played a couple times to make copies to use, mainly in my vehicles. Mark

    The DTL owners manual has a good description of the basics of it - different equalizations needed for L+R and L_R. Mark

    What are the best sounding Simon&Garfunkul records?

    Based on my experience, pre-order from Music Direct. Last year I pre-ordered MFSL's The Nightfly from a 'wholesale' online retailer (Elusive Disc), then a couple weeks later I pre-ordered one from Music Direct. When it was released in October 2017 I got the one from Music Direct very quickly, about a week after release. Several months went by without a word from Elusive Disc - in email communication they told me Mobile Fidelity had some supply issues and since they were a 'wholesale' business their pre-orders were filled after 'retail' orders (like from Music Direct). I contacted Mobile Fidelity and they confirmed what Elusive Disc told me. I also learned that Mobile Fidelity and Music Direct are 'sister' companies. I had given up on getting the copy from Elusive Disc, but to my surprise it finally shipped on Jan 31, over 3 months after release. I pre-ordered 2 copies of BOTW when it first showed up on Music Directs site. Mark

    Young Talent

    This 11 year old has been playing drums since he was 2 years old, now he's learning bass guitar and piano. Here he is at 7 yo with his cover of Tom Sawyer (which Neil Peart calls one of the hardest songs to play correctly).
