  1. Anyone here have a Dennis Had amp?

    Those with both the Dennis Had And Mc30's might be a short list so Jim lets do this - I have the Had and you have the Mc30 monos, right. Send me your Mc's and I'll compare those against my Dennis Had and I'll write a detailed report after an extensive and lengthy listening session. All for the good of this thread and the Forum in general. I'll provide my address when you are ready to ship. You can all thank me later --

    Seven hundred miles on a pedal bike, me?!? Wouldn't be able to send this until next spring I reckon! And more than likely from a hospital bed at that?! I do believe the cedar wood stain has given you a case of the vapors?!

    With all do respect to TCU who I do not follow but attended KU and its just down the road from me, beating KU's football team is nothing to hang ones hat on. I'm surprised it wasn't worse, TCU must have called the dawgs off or held the spread for the betting world. Lets get real here college football, athletics in general, is nothing but a money making machine for universities, Las Vegas, and at the end of the day pro sports. Ain't nothing "genuine" about it at this point ---

    Oh yeah motorbike, Im far from man enough to do 700 miles through the Arkansas mountains on a pedal bike. Me and the wife on the K1600 on back roads through Missouri to NW Arky Eureka Springs and ran the length of Hiway 23 also known as the "Pig Trail". Noted as one of the top ten bike roads in the country. Been on it numerous times but never the full run north to south. Then to Mena AR and scenic route 88 to Talihina? Oklahoma. It's not a secret anymore but some of the best bike roads in the country wind through Arkansas. We try to get there once or twice a year for the curvy experience, both breathtaking and if your not real careful butt puckering. First time trying the new Dunlop RoadSmart 3 tires, I'll see how they last but the grip was far more than I can test, very good so far. Bike came with Metzlers and went to Pirelli's next. Pretty much any new tire and any modern sport touring bike perform well over my skills. But I push like helll taking into my wife on the back, kids and Grandkids back home.

    I think so but actually had to think it through. Last April 2017, no didn't bring any gear. The previous year would have been 2016 so yes that's the year. Think back - same year you brought a Mc 250? solid state to sell? Wasn't that in 2016? Gawd its shitts to get old(er).

    ^^^^^ Very cool. Yep, mine is stove top model too, just like your small aluminum model. With the amount of Joe you consume you must keep those little guys very busy?! But probably just use for a quick brew like I do ---?

    Why yes it is! Just back from a short 3day bike trip and will wait for a full pot in the morning. So I broke out the small Bialetti expresso maker for a couple small cups. Tastes pretty dadgum good! You enjoy now ----
  10. Anyone here have a Dennis Had amp?

    Jim you may remember I brought my Inspire to Hope, 2016. I do know several folks thought it sounded very nice. KT66/88 single ended utilizing different rectifiers for 66 or 88. Mine is an "integrated" or a power amp with volume pot. Never heard an Inspire PP so I can't comment. But I will say that regardless tube or solid state this is one of the quietest amps I've owned. Including chip amps and Class D. Extremely silent right at the mid/tweet horn, something to be valued with our big horns. And I'm sure Dennis will accommodate extra Inspire emblems should you desire. And I know McIntosh has never attached their chrome McIntosh emblem on any amp or fit those gigantic blue power meters. No they would never showcase their iconic name. I'd say Dennis' success with Cary allows him to brag a bit. I've spoken with him several times and he is genuinely nice to chat with. Helll, he might even be nice to you?!

    Aside from the sound what did the SHO pull on the dyno ? Lets see some numbers -

  15. Kidney Stone Free....again

    What is the root cause of K stones? I've never had the experience, thankfully. Not enough water? Poor quality water? Too much coffee? Soft drinks? Body chemistry? Thanks
