  1. Great Karma!!! Outstanding generosity!!! I would love to be in but I dont have a spot for it. I really need to thin the herd as it is. I look forward to seeing who wins. Good luck everyone, I'm out.
  2. I picked up a Kirmuss ultrasonic record cleaning/reconditioning machine a few months back. I have been using the VPI vacuum for years. The Kirmuss process is significantly better. I was shocked at how much crap was on my records. Some of the worst records I had were cleaned multiple time by the VPI machine. Results: Some records I don't hear any difference but at least half it makes a big difference and for some its profound. Very happy with this process. The process is a bit slow and has multiple steps but it's worth it. Plus for ultrasonic machines, its reasonably priced.
  3. Love the "Black Stacks!"
  4. I would love an ultrasonic machine but I don't want to spend the money. I use the VPI HW 16.5 and it does a wonderful job. For those garage sale albums that it won't completely clean, I use wood glue. It does a deep cleaning and it's fun if you have the time. plus I love peeling off the dried glue. It's like peeling dead skin from a sun burn.
  5. YEA! Thank you so much! Greatly appreciated! You have no idea how bad I suck with desoldering. I really struggle with it so I am so excited to get this tool. BTW I really suck soldering too.
  6. Awesome Karma! Congrats HewLew
  7. Same, in please and will karma duplicates. Awesomeness Karma
  8. Thanks everyone! I love my Carver family.
  9. My Favorites change all the time. My Beatles collection includes 71 vinyl albums and around 40 CDs. Needless to say I'm a fan. I tried to narrow it down to my top 15. Next week the list will be completely different. 1. A Day in the Life 2. Tomorrow Never Knows 3.. While My Guitar Gently Weaps 4. She's Leaving Home 5. All My Loving 6. In My Life 7. Elenor Rigby 8. Day Tripper 9. Yesterday 10. Let it Be 11. Love Me Do 12. Hold Me Tight 13. I saw her standing there 14. I'm so Happy Just to Dance with You 15. Rain
  10. Congratulations JR! Enjoy your new C1!
  11. Great Karma your dudeness, duder, or el dudorino if you're not into the whole brevity thing! Really dude great karma. In please! I think that C1 would really tie my room together. I am putting together a listening room in new house. I have a C1 but it's not a BillD C1. I don't need f*@kin' sympathy, man, I need a f*@kin BilllD C1. I also have a tape deck and some Creedence tapes I found in some dudes car. No Metallica though, assholes. If I happen to win I will Karma the non BillD C1. Man, a lotta ins, a lotta outs, a lotta what-have-yous. And, uh, a lotta strands to keep in my head, man. Lotta strands in old Duder's head but I will Karma the stock C1. By the way, do you think that if I receive the Karma, well my concern is, and I have to, uh, check with my accountant, that this might bump me into a higher, uh, tax bracket?
