  1. Happy Birthday Bill! I hope you have a great day!
  2. Hello Ed, and welcome to thecarversite.com. We're glad you're hear. There is a lot of information here, much technical know how, and a pretty good bunch of folks that are happy to help. That's an impressive collection of gear, and a BillD C-1 and an M-500t mkII is an incredible combination. There are several excellent techs here who are all capable of helping you keep your gear in order. There are also a few DIY speaker builders here too. You should fit right in. Once you get to Novice status, please consider uploading some pics of your gear in the Members Systems area. We all like pics of all kinds of audio gear. In the meantime, kick your shoes off, turn up the music, and welcome aboard.
  3. Once Mofi sells their run, the price for an unopened copy usually doubles in just a few months. Santana, Abrxas was the first, originally 99.95 + shipping. The least expensive one I've seen listed on ebay recently was $1200. Bill Evans, Sunday at the Village Vanguard was #2. A year ago,, you could get a copy for $300, and it's being listed from $700 to $1K now. Starting at #3, Donald Fagan The Nightfly, price was increased to $125. Prices have stayed there but production runs have increased , 7K I think. Abraxas was limited to 3K and others were 5K. A listing for all 10 mofi UD1S releases just sold on ebay. It was listed with a starting bid of $3500, and a make offer option. They turned down my $2500 offer. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mobile-Fidelity-One-Step/154037500661
  4. I have all the Mofi Ultradisc releases except the first one, Santana Abraxas. The only one of the bunch that I say meh to is Simon & Garfunkel, Bridge Over Trouble Water. To me, every one of them is worth the money, but I just can't bring myself to pulling the trigger on Abraxas at the $1500 it's being listed for on ebay now. The second, Bill Evans Sunday at the Village Vanguard, is approaching $1000. All of the UD1S Mofi albums are 45rpm, 180gr double albums. My favorites so far are Donald Fagen, The Nightfly; SRV, Texas Flood; Marvin Gaye, What's Goin' On; and Yes, Fragile. These are by far the highest quality records that I've owned or heard. The proprietary vinyl is just one piece of the process. Manufacturing is another, and it's described in detail here. A UD1S Blood Sweat & Tears album is also available for preorder.
  5. I used CBD drops to help me get my sleep habits back on track. My experience was that it worked like a champ for about 3 months or so, and then it became progressively less effective. If Utah has legal medical marijuana, that is the more effective solution for pain. THC & CBD contents are labeled on the products, and some strains are bred for pain relief. That said, the pain relief strains are usually the most potent THC wise. If you do go this route, indica dominant hybrids are very effective for pain. Medical marijuana has been a Godsend for one of my sons-in-law. He has to have clusters of tumors removed from his spinal cord every couple of years or so, and the herb has kept him off opioids for several months now. He's not pain free, but he says the pain is managable without oxycontin now. Now if you're curious as to how I know this, I plead the Fifth.
  6. "The Internet emperor has no clothes." If the article hadn't said that, I would have.
  7. Happy Birthday Rob! I hope you have a great day!
  8. Bobby Watson, Keepin' It Real was released on June 26, 2020. "As saxophonist/composer Bobby Watson embarks on a new chapter in his storied career, his latest album arrives as a reminder of the authenticity that has characterized his music on every step of that journey. Keepin’ It Real, due out June 26 via Smoke Sessions Records, debuts a new incarnation of his renowned band Horizon, furthering a legacy endowed by Watson’s days as one of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers and passed on through a lifetime in jazz education."

  9. Welcome back Papajoe. It's good to read you again. Here's to your problems being minimal, or better yet, non-problems.
  10. What about nuts the size of grapefruits? Hell, you don't have to advertise.
