  1. I'd originally thought it may have been from a Journey album, but I now see that it's https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ouroboros_(Ray_LaMontagne_album) after the hints. I'll now have to check that out on tidal as I'd never heard of him before. In the spirit of continuing this :-
  2. Physical ticket stubs are going to become such a rarity in this age of barcodes scanned from your phone.
  3. Not In - A very drool worthy item indeed, but I'm not either as I don't have the space for it ... but then again I could always get some new racks ... hmmm ...
  4. I can't say I'd even given much thought to who they represented, but the Wikipedia page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_(playing_card) seemed like a good place to start.

    Mp3tag 3.00

    I've been using this for the editing of audio metadata for many years, and usually download / update it from the authors website, https://www.mp3tag.de/en/index.html
  6. The Ride Apart article linked by @RichP714 had a link to the Utah law https://le.utah.gov/~2019/bills/static/HB0149.html which highlighted the changes ... 159 (29) "Lane filtering" means, when operating a motorcycle other than an autocycle, the 160 act of overtaking and passing another vehicle that is stopped in the same direction of travel in 161 the same lane. ... and ... 383 (5) An individual may engage in lane filtering only when the following conditions 384 exist: 385 (a) the individual is operating a motorcycle; 386 (b) the individual is on a roadway divided into two or more adjacent traffic lanes in the 387 same direction of travel; 388 (c) the individual is on a roadway with a speed limit of 45 miles per hour or less; 389 (d) the vehicle being overtaken in the same lane is stopped; 390 (e) the motorcycle is traveling at a speed of 15 miles per hour or less; and 391 (f) the movement may be made safely. Given that the movement was not made safely, I would have thought the motorcyclist was in violation of that section of the law.
  7. The only software needed should that used for audio playback purposes, which would be youtube in your case.
  8. If your phone/iPad has a headphone socket, then you should just need a 3.5mm to 2 RCA cable. Something like https://www.amazon.com/UGREEN-3-5mm-Auxiliary-Stereo-Splitter/dp/B015PZ7QO2/ref=sxin_3_ac_d_rm?ac_md=1-1-My41bW0gdG8gcmNhIGNhYmxlIDNmdA%3D%3D-ac_d_rm&crid=12BL03R2RTJPI&keywords=3.5mm+to+rca+cable&pd_rd_i=B015PZ7QO2&pd_rd_r=6b4cf578-15de-486e-82fe-10391a226768&pd_rd_w=W1rOH&pd_rd_wg=47eTF&pf_rd_p=d29bc9bc-49e2-46b8-bc05-387917c341ec&pf_rd_r=ZGMVRSPD2SGFQYQ4VR9Y&qid=1569022253&s=gateway&sprefix=3.5mm+to+rca%2Caps%2C143 If your phone/iPad does not have headphone socket, then you'll probably need a bluetooth to 2 RCA adapter, and associated RCA Cable. Something like https://www.amazon.com/BluDento-Bluetooth-Receiver-Internal-Streaming/dp/B07BKXP326/ref=sr_1_8?crid=O5J9QFSKC0UC&keywords=bluetooth+to+rca+adapter&qid=1569022832&s=gateway&sprefix=bluetooth+to+rca+%2Caps%2C238&sr=8-8 3.5mm to RCA cables are pretty are a straight forward connection. I've not tried to use any bluetooth to 2 RCA adapters, but presume they work in a similar manner to sending bluetooth audio in a car.
  9. After receiving my MkII modded M500 back from @Nahash5150, I've now set it up to drive the Totem Acoustic Forests via the pre-outs on the Denon ARV-X4400H. I also added an external triggered power relay (see https://www.adafruit.com/product/2935) so that the M500 will power on as the Denon powers on.
  10. The cables certainly do like to entwine themselves ?. In the early 90's when I first encountered Carver gear and had a 6200 Receiver, I also had a pair of Energy ESM-2 that were my compromise as i couldn't afford to get a pair Energy 22. Anyway, after purchasing a house in the early 2000's, the wife and i went shopping for a surround system as the house had been pre-wired for surround (with 4 outlets around the room near the ceiling) and thus we were looking for smaller bookshelf speakers suitable for wall mounting. Initially I was looking at an Energy surround system, so went to several dealers in the DMV area to demo systems - one of these was also a Totem dealer. After demoing an Energy set (Take 5? maybe), we also listened to several Totem sets (Dream Catchers, Mites, Model 1, Arro, Forests). I liked them all however price and the fact that there was a Rear Project TV in the corner of the room there meant that there could be no floor standing speakers... Anyway, after replacing the Rear Projection TV a year or so ago (thus opening up some floor space) it was time to go Speaker Shopping again... initially I was looking for a pair of Arros in the used marketplace to complement the Dream Catchers, but came across the Forests at a reasonable price.
  11. Thanks @dcl- images uploaded to Imgur and now inserted into a member systems post.

  13. Thanks for the warm welcome. Currently, the M500 (unless being used) is unplugged. @dcl I'll watch for any local gatherings. @loner_tI'm pretty close by just off Rt28 and Church. I was trying to add some images to a member systems post as per inserting-photos-video-links, however i could not get any image to upload ?. - Tony
