  1. “Until the End of Time” by Brian Greene. Book covering the time frame from the Big Bang till the end of time (and everything in between). Actually listening to it on an App called “Overdrive” and checking it out of the library like a normal book. This app is a pretty nice deal, download it, sign up, enter your library card number and have access to thousand of books.
  2. Welcome aboard, great site and great people here. Went to Rome a few years back and had the best vacation of my life. Outstanding city and the history there absolutely fascinated me. Pretty decent pasta there also 😀
  3. i think Miley nailed this one
  4. I mostly listen to Spotify and just use an 1/8” stereo plug to rca adapter. This is when I just want background music and it sounds just fine to me (C1 preamp billd mod, M200t refurbished, Polk LSI15’s, Denon DP-300f, Panasonic DVD RP56) kind of don’t care about the CD/dvd player may upgrade at some point…maybe not I use an iPhone 7 to steam the Spotify… I have Steely Dan Aja on LP, CD, and Spotify. I played all 3 formats at the same time and switched between formats to hear the differences. Not surprisingly to me I liked in descending order LP-CD-Spotify. Mostl
  5. Never argue with an idiot, people watching can’t tell you apart
  6. Funny.... asking this group which piece of carver gear to get rid of... lamb to slaughter... welcome aboard, great group of people here!
  7. I’m all over the map when it comes to music. 80’s hairbands is my go to. Old ZZ Top is playing right now With the electrostatic speakers, I like new age, police, dire straights. Mostly land in the 70’s to 89’s rock. had Cyprus Hill on a little bit ago love insane in the membrane...go figure 🤔Who you trying to get crazy with ése? Don't you know I'm loco?
  8. New picture this time with listening chair and speakers. Was on FB marketplace Friday night, searched “Polk LSI15” and this set popped up. Seller was asking $250 for the pair. 320 miles latter they are in the house. I guess the MMG’s got retired a bit earlier that I planned on. Always thought Polk and carver was a good match. Need to replace grill cloth other than that, they are 100%
  9. Excellent choice for the first album. AJA is my album of choice when listening to a new piece of gear. When I read the title of the thread, my first thought was this album and had to chuckle when that was the choice. I prefer vinyl but have it on CD Also
  10. Married and the kids are out of the house and college. So I guess I have a stereo room and theater room now. Speakers are an old ratty pair of magnepan MMG’s, water damaged bases, cat tore up both speaker covers... still sound amazing. Was going to build new “cabinets” for them but then I saw Charlie’s electrostatic build and would like to build a set of those instead. A boy can dream as for listening chair, just an old love seat for now
  11. Thanks, the solder joints on the tuner looked fine but I figured no harm, reflowed them and voila’ fixed..
  12. After some challenges, I have a functional system. The M-200t was randomly going into overload protection ended up being caused by the C1’s outputs were gunked up with excessive rosin. Did a thorough cleaning of all solder joints (alcohol and q-tips). Was thinking about using the wife’s ultra sonic tooth brush but thought better of it 😇 been over a month now with no overload so I’m going to say solved. had the TX-11 for years and it developed a left channel drop out, took it out of storage and found that the output jack board connection had cold solder joints. Re-flowed those and
  13. I would guess so, I just picked somebody with good feedback and crossed my fingers then shipped the C1. Worked out well for me
