  1. My experience has been as follows. - Editing a post in a thread I did not start was not possible as recently as 15 minutes after the post. I haven't tried it within 15 minutes. - Editing the first post in a thread I started (the M-400 silkscreen thread) was worked just fine. Not sure if I tried it outside the 1 hour window, but that post got a lot of edits. My vote would be to make it a 24 hour window like the old site. I never even noticed that there was a 24 hour window. By the way, what's the reasoning behind any limits on editing your own posts?
  2. Could someone clarify the rules governing the editing of your own posts. Sometimes I can, sometimes not. I tend to commit a lot of typos, so I often look to fix them. Thanks.

    FS: Tech equipment

    Does that Keithly have the Distortion Analyzer functions? Kind of looks like it does.
  4. Good grief, it's been almost 5 years. "What a long strange trip its been" -- J.Garcia July of 2013. The C-1 got the full monty. Came to me via Tom at Vintage Hifi. I cleaned it up and gave it the full BillD treatment (plus my extra resistor replacements). It's got a few bonus upgrades that Tom installed too. Good to hear its still going strong. Good luck with the sale of the CS2's.
  5. Maybe I'm blind, but I cant find the manuals anywhere. Where should I look? Never mind. I just found them. I think.

    Overpriced 'deals':

    That beast was relisted. It's local too, but $200,000 is a bit beyond my monthly budget. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Electrovoice-30-inch-woofer-with-custom-wood-cabinet-MADE-IN-USA-RARE-EV30/222712684266?hash=item33dab5deea:g:nr0AAOSwCQZZCym-

    Pandora vs. Spotify

    Many thanks for everyone who has posted here. Your thoughts and opinions have been helpful. Based on comments here, I'm going to sign up for a subscription to Tidal and see how it goes. I my also purchase an OPPO Sonica DAC as a replacement for the Transporter. Thanks again.

    Pandora vs. Spotify

    Any thoughts on the merits of these two music services? I've been a Pandora Plus subscriber for several years but have grown weary of their repetitive play lists. I just signed up for Spotify. Turns out my Logitech Transporter/Squeezebox infrastructure can't do Spotify, so I was forced to buy a Sonos Connect. I'm still in trying to learn the Sonos. If I go with Spotify, I may have to scrap the Logitech components (2 Transporters, 2 SB Touch). So far I like Spotify, but I'm not too impressed with the Sonos. Thoughts on replacements? Thanks.
