  1. Video is already unavailable. Thanks for trying. I was able to find it on DailyMotion just after the fight ended - saved myself $100 not buying the PPV.
  2. Was I that obvious? After I auditioned the Silver 9t amps, I did secretly wonder if there was a possibility that you might forget where I live. 😉 Seriously, I'm looking forward to your next visit. Last time we focused mainly on multi-channel content. This time I'd like to focus on Stereo music. Using a BillD C-1 I'd like to do an amp shoot-out with my M500tmkii's, TFM-45 and your Silver 9t monoblocks, paired with the NHT 2.5i speakers and listen for the winning combination. Also, the wifey and I would love to fix you a home cooked meal this time. Great write-up on California. I'm glad that it wasn't as evil as you anticipated. I enjoyed reading your observations. Now I've got to get back to listening to the Silver 9ts. I've been averaging about 2 hours a night.
  3. Nope. I didn't know I wanted them then. 😁
  4. I'm not a tech with the skills to repair, so I'd have to rely on someone else. Also, who knows what mystery lurks inside those amps... I think I need a more plug and play solution. Thanks for the heads up though.
  5. I am also in search of a winning preamp/amp/speaker/room combination. After, a great night of auditioning speakers from the impressive collection of @Daddyjt in November, I was so impressed by the performance of a pair of NHT 2.5i's that I immediately bought a pair. Powered by a McCormack DNA-225 amp, they hung with the big boys (kappa 9's, Polk SDA'S, etc); they looked cool, and were within my budget. At home, I've been powering them with two M500tmkii's in power steering mode. However, I've been unimpressed with their sound, which has frustrated me and motivated me to figure out why. I thought maybe the culprit was my Yamaha receiver with its weak pre-outs or its room correction software. I started swapping out components. I swapped out the Yamaha with a BiillD C-1. I swapped out the M500ts and used a TFM-45 for amplification, but never had that "aha" moment until now... Due to fortunate circumstances, and @Daddyjt's enabling again, I found myself in possession of a pair of Silver Nine T's to throw into the mix. I really wasn't expecting much, but I was wrong. I'm loving the Silver Nine T's and once again Mark has me scouring Craigslist/Offer up, etc. to find a pair. The OCCD journey continues.
  6. Find yourself a c-1 and get it "BillD" modded by a tech here on the site. The TFM-45 is a great sounding amp. Enjoy your audio journey and tell us about your system. -PhilDent
  7. If that were true we would not have been listening to NHT2.5i speakers in an untreated room. Thank you for initiating operation OPPO with the Mrs.
  8. I sent the family flowers that will be delivered to his service. I signed the card from me and the Carversite.
  9. Has the family expressed any wishes? Flowers? Donations made to a specific charity?
  10. Sad news. I pray he passes peacefully, surrounded by loved ones.
  11. Damn dude! That's cold. I skied in Banff one year at -25 and that temperature is absolutely inhumane.
  12. Great Karmas Charlie! Thanks for your generosity.
  13. Great Karma! In with 46.
  14. +1. I joined mid 2017 and by last count I have collected two BillD C-1 preamps and nine amplifiers.
  15. Welcome Butcher! I like the BillD C1 preamp with the m500tmkii combination. Also, I am fond of the A400x and the TFM-45 amps. Enjoy your Carver journey. -PhilDent
  16. Great Karma! In with 46.
  17. £25,000 for a bottle?😵 The opportunity cost is too much for me. I can't imagine my nightcap costing me as much as a bitchin' audio system.
  18. If you're near LA you must come by my place for a visit. I'd love to reciprocate the hospitality and get your opinion on my NHT speakers and setup. Happy New Year!
  19. Very cool Karma! Not in because I would like one of the talented techs here to get it.
  20. I find his facial expressions distracting, but his playing is unbelievably precise. He is quite the prodigy.
  21. The system is looking great!
  22. Wow dude! Good eye. That is a 1st place trophy from Little League baseball in 1980 (and I assume that they didn't give everyone 1st place trophies back then.) 😊
  23. Well done Mark. That is a high bar.
