  1. To your question, let me share some philosophy (mine)..., YMMV At one point, I tried to RIP all my content..., but eventually realized..., I was duplicating, and, well, that's time I will never get back..., time I could use doing something else, productive..., that didn't duplicate what was already out there. I got rid of most of what I had ripped to my NAS. From professional/commercial sources, It's better indexed, and, well, more complete, from any of the better streaming services..., I use TIDAL, there are others. I transitioned over to one of these
  2. "You got too many vacation days..., you should burn those off and take 3 day weekends for the rest of the summer. But first, can you get this (time-sink) project here done..., no one else here knows how to do it..."

  9. Welcome, @JRS, Glad you found us. hang out, enjoy. And, of course, that setup you have..., gotta' post some pics. 1400WPC, that sounds awesome - and I bet it does ! 😉 Great story on giving the receiver to your daughter..., I gave my daughter an M1.0t MkII Opt2, (from Nelion/Greg) new black faceplate I put on, and a C-11 (from DennisMiller) pre-amp driving Polk speakers and a Denon 47f servo-tonearm turntable..., WAY more than I had at her age..., but she's worth it. Your daughter no doubt has your genes, as she jumps into Carver-land. Oh, yea,

  13. Welcome @Imafed. I was a bit worried about your handle..., as there may be a few illicit-leaning activities and threads ... LoL. Momentarily thought we'd been infiltrated by a mole..., JUST KIDDING 😉 Love the handle. Now you need a suitable G-man style avatar to go with it ! Frank, really glad you found us. Ex military service, and your background..., you will fit right in. REALLY Glad you found us. A bit more activity and you'll be able to upload pictures. We'd love to see what you are working on, and how it comes together in your system.
  14. Welcome @Kurt. Your story sounds familiar..., me, and many others had that 80's wishing experience, and now, going back and doing and owning what we dreamed of from the magic of Bob Carver's mind. Pretty nice setup. At the risk of being called out..., (by Bose haters...) I will admit, I have a pair of the original edition 601's, in Walnut. I had the second generation which sounded good, but the fake plastic veneer was not my favorite..., so I sold them to a guy that shipped containers of gear to Japan and Korea..., I'm sure he made a mint. But to be sure
  15. "I'll be there by 7:00AM." (The response:) "It's not my first rodeo, I know better..." (I'ts 8:30, and he's not here yet...)

  18. Truly iconic, and wonderful. TY to the builders/owners of this entity. Kudos to all the volunteers that pitch in each fundraising round. Truly a wonderful thing, and breath of fresh air ..., an island of perfection in a sea of trub (beer-making term) called the internet.

  22. The English Language, and all it's fun...
  23. From a movie I watched..., reminds me of the "do you want fries with that," up sell pitch... "Yes, we can sell you a submarine. Do you want nukes with that?"
  24. Question: How many social media group members does it take to change a light bulb ? Answer(s) follow... 1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed. 14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently. 7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs. 17 purists who use candles and are offended by light bulb discussions. 6 to argue over whether it's 'lightbulb' or 'light bulb'. Another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid. 22 to tell
