  1. What a Wonderful Christmas gift to someone. NOT in, one of my AL-III’s has developed a buzz and is not in use for the foreseeable future.
  2. I'll chime in with the latest in my story too... For the past 17 years + I've been in Medical Imaging Systems service, X-Ray, CT, peripherals. 12 years ago I hired into Wisconsin's largest hospital system. 6 years ago, they outsourced us all, and I have been working for the contractor since. Last spring, the hospital system "merged" with another from IL. In June it was decided they were going to cancel the remaining 4 years of the service contract. So, I have applied for my job for the 3rd time. I was able to negotiate a nearly 10% raise out of it though. I received my layoff notice from the contractor yesterday. I knew it was coming but it still hit me kinda wierd. I'll begin my "new job" in January, having gone full circle. Although only 3 of the 7 we had in my area decided to return. Should be an interesting year...
  3. I'll tiptoe my way in and add my $.02 on the matter of PC run amok You cannot have highs without lows, Happiness without sadness, joy without disappointment, hills without valleys, life without death. If all the 'lows' are taken out of life, how can you recognize the 'highs? If I'm not allowed to tell someone how I really feel, two have been slighted. My rights to express myself are diminished, The person I am talking to does not get to know the truth. Seems sad to me.
  4. Thanks guys! im no longer pushing 60. now I’m dragging it.😧
  5. Good to hear you are doing okay. Our prayers are with all the CA residents that have endured these fires. I've seen the Santa Monica's ablaze first hand. My In-Laws live in Camarillo and were evacuated early due to the Hill fire, along with CS Channel Islands, which they live nearby. They called Deb to let her know they were okay and with friends. We watched the story unfold on the news daily, having lived in Camarilllo in the early '90's and being quite familiar with the area. Thank you ABC News 7 for keeping us informed, for the aerial video coverage, and for allowing us to watch via the 'net. Stay safe!
  6. Thanks for the excellent offering, Charlie! NOT in, we just bought a camera a few weeks ago.
  7. If your pre has some sort of a rumble filter, try that first. Or at least until you can get the other cures in place. jus my $.02🚶
  8. Nice setup Cbolt18! Thanks for posting pics, we all love pics👌 I'm wondering if this occurs with your turntable or with any other source material.
  9. A very generous and tempting Karma indeed! Not in though. I have an original pressing already and need to rebuild my disposable $$ for a new cartridge first. Good luck to those who throw their names in the hat! -Lee-
  10. Cool! Just the thing Charlie’s “Death Star” needs! I have 2 subs loitering in the basement, with no real need for them. Damn OCCD!
  11. I've moved so may times in my life, I don't envy that part of it at all. Among other insignificant moves, I've moved from Jackson, MS to Ventura, CA. From Ventura to Houston, TX. From Houston to Oshkosh, WI. My tips on moving: +1 on the blankets, pillows, etc. Use the fewest box sizes possible, maximum 3. They will stack and pack better. I had to purchase boxes but was worth it. Get a couple rolls of cotton rope. Tie the cargo toward the front in layers to help prevent shifting during transport. Try to put fragile stuff toward the front, its a better ride up there. Enjoy the drive!
  12. Welcome to the site nwlaznik! Sounds like you already got bit with OCCD (Obsessive Craver Collecting Disorder) I agree with the others - grab them before I get there. If you do need help in their revivals, there is a great bunch here that are beyond generous with their expertise. Meanwhile, crank up some tunes, sit back and enjoy the show!
  13. I nearly exclusively stream music from on-line sources. I have 3 Sonos Connect devices in the house, in my Main Rig it runs through an external DAC. When I want to just sit and listen, I connect my MacBook to the DAC and control it with my iPad. I have a dresser full of cd's, loaded onto a NAS in FLAC format, and can stream those when a selection can't be found online. My analog (vinyl) system is in the process of overhaul right now, so my preference may change.
  14. Welcome aboard Chas! That C4000 is reputed to be a very fine preamp. What a wonderful gift! I’ve not had the pleasure of experiencing one. Yet. As stated, many members are heading to CarverFest 2018. Sadly I’m not gonna make it myself this year, but they’ll be checking in. Tell us what other grear you have, your musical tastes, etc. And now that you know how, post some pics! We love all things audio, not just Carver. Pull up a seat, pour yourself a favorite beverage and enjoy some music!
