  1. I'm out this year. Just can't swing it.
  2. If you are in the Philadelphia area and want a listen to this preamp, I will be hosting an audio meet on June 15th from 10 to 5 at 100 Frontage Rd. Cherry Hill, NJ 08034.
  3. I never over-react, and I'll kill anybody who says otherwise!
  4. Technical note: Most flats are in the right rear tire. Why? The 'gutter side' collects the most debris, which is just laying flat on the ground, then your front tire runs it over, kicking it up in the air. All it takes it a 1/4 rotation to position a nail or screw (or key!) just right to puncture the tire following right behind it. You 'tailgaters' get them in your front tires because of the pieces kicked up by the car in front of you. No time for the debris to lay back down. Worst flat I got was a 6" long screw into the sidewall of my '88 Chevy G30 at a scrap yard. Very big and expensive tires were on "Big Red", it looked like a 4X4. Most inconvenient flat was in 1981. Took my '72 Chevy Nomad wagon up into Kelly, NM, a ghost town in the Magdalena Mountains for some mine exploration. We came out at 2am to a right rear flat, I had a spare but the jack didn't work. Had to drive a few miles into Magdalena on dirt roads in the dark to get help. By the time we got to paved road, the tire was gone and sparks flew from the rim like a Live PD car chase.
  5. Big Wedding in CT My youngest daughter Sarah is marrying James on Sunday on the beach in Mystic/Stonington, CT. Monday is the church service. Val and I are driving up on Friday (Ruby gets to terrorize a local kennel for the weekend!) Pick up my tux, go to rehearsal, have an early dinner on Saturday. Big day on Sunday. Fight traffic Monday afternoon getting back to NJ.
  6. Where are you? I'm in Nj and could ship a serviced, but not modded, C-1 for under $500 within a month.
  7. A Warm Welcome Back! I had no idea... You were greatly missed. Sadly I thought it was for other reasons. I was mis-informed. You are always welcome to call me, my friend.
  8. I'm Passing on CF19. I hope all attendees enjoy the time!
  9. Ah, yes, the Carver/Polk symbiosis...
  10. In, please. Very nice work indeed!
  11. Can't stand how rusty Ford trucks get... F-O-R-D= Falling Off Rusty Doors. There are like NO doors or beds that aren't rotted through anymore! I couldn't afford the gas... Those hubcaps weigh more than the wheels on my Fit. LOL! On the other hand, that would make a really cool sleeper with 2500HP and some 34" tires in the back in FarmTruck style. Maybe call it "Ol Granny".
  12. I started replacing my vintage gear with modern gear several years ago. First was a Sony XDR-F1HD tuner. Then it was a VPI Scout 1.1 turntable. Next, a CarverFest 275 tube amp. Then an Oppo BDP-105D. Now I've got this 10 Octave LP-1 preamp. I've barely got any vintage gear left in my main rig! Heck, I'm seriously considering some new Tekton speakers. Anybody else making a similar transition?
