  1. The benchmark is the best amplifier I have owned. By a long shot. Unfortunately you will be hard pressed to find them used. But if you’re Willing to go up to 3k you will not be disappointed. They have a trial period where you can return it if it doesn’t meet your expectations. its been a Stereophile A rated amp since it’s intro. By far the least expensive A rated amp in their reviews. And before anyone screams about Stereophile, benchmark does not advertise with them! josh
  2. Years ago I had a BMW 2002, that I needed to have the hand brake cable replaced. I certainly had better things to do so I drove it for a bout. year without a hand brake. I became very adept at the process you describe. I worked in downtown San Francisco so the hills were pretty challenging.. I woman I worked with at the time needed to borrow my car one day. Needles to say she was a bit freaked out when she returned it!
  3. not cartoon and not political but it made me laugh
  4. The thorens is one of the best turntables ever. No belt drive can compete with an idler drive - if set up and updated appropriately. I am a big fan of idler drive. So if ou can get that beast set up properly with new rubber ( if it needs it) etc - Then you are in heaven with the MC30s and the preamp. You are set! J

  6. Bill Brysons' "The Body" Great read!
  7. I would agree that if you were to increase your budget this direct drive tt will out perform many tts at many times the price. As was said here that a repurposed lenco would be a good option and it would be if you were open to a project! But you said that you were not so I would go with the pioneer.
  8. From my understanding you are correct in theory. They do however serve the purpose of keeping people from touching their nose and mouth - which I believe is the primary entry point of the virus.

    What I Got Today!

    No Kidding. Talk about loosing their way! I have owned 8 of them. 2 -2002's a 1602. a 528i, 630i, 535i , a 330i and the afore mentioned 320i. The 330i was a 2003 and that is the latest model year I have owned. All of them were awesome cars and would be happy to own any one of them now!

    What I Got Today!

    I made sure that all of my kids learned to drive a stick shift. I figured they would need to concentrate more on driving rather than texting etc. I bought an 78 BMW 320i for 800 bucks. All three of them learned to drive in it. I just saw one just like it sell on bring a trailer for 30K. Should have kept it! The best thing about having them learn on a manual that when they all went off to college they had manual tranny cars and no one could borrow their car! They now greatly appreciate that they know how to actually drive!
  11. Don’t know a lot about consoles. I picked this up at an estate sale for 40 dollars. There was an excellent condition Fisher 400 receiver in it and the speakers are a two way JBL ‘s The turntable and reel to reel were not that great. I added a CD player and it sounds really really good. Not a bad buy!

    What I Got Today!

    Couldn't resist. Reasonable miles. Had to deal with a few little things - to be expected on an 18 or so year old car. But it is an old school pre Chrysler Benz. Very well put together!

    You haven’t watched many of their games. No Jimmy is not Mahomes. But All he does is win.

    One thing it true however - they ( like pretty much every team) have had issues with the “new” breed of extremely mobile QBs. Their pass rush can really frustrate a classic drop back passer but a running and improviser can be problematic. It will be a tough game because of KC’s QB but I do think they will prevail.

    When has had to pass he has and will. But why bother than you can run the ball the way that the niners have. So yes the KC QB is Great. But don’t underestimate Jimmy G. Also note that the niners have the best pass defense in the league and close to the best running game. KC has the worst pass defense and a suspect run defense. If the KC somehow contains the sf running game Jimmy G can make up for that. See the two games versus the cardinals. Cardinals have a solid run defense and were able to limit the niners run game ( our two all pro lineman were out) . So what did jimmy do averaged 370 yards in the two wins. See also him out dueling Drew B in the Dome. Not many have done that!
