    DWI Lawyer, I liked that name more.... 

    Much too formal for this band of ne’er-do-wells - working undercover gets better results 

  2. I’ve gone back and forth, forth and back between nCore 400 monoblocks, Benchmark and First Watt F3 hoping to actually say I favor one over another. I really believe the Benchmark and FW sound better than the nCores. There is a sense of better clarity, more “air” particularly in the upper mids and top end and just an overall sense of an openness not there with the nCores. Sure they all play Jubes louder than helll but I can play the FW and BM much louder More Comfortably than the nCores. That alone tells me that either distortion or harmonics are cleaner or friendlier than that with nCores. Of course my ears, my associated gear, my room etc. But I believe what I’m hearing -

    The new amp hasn't blown up yet. My uneducated ears rather like it. Working 25years in a bowling alley can dim the senses a bit.



    I believe your ears are  “pinned” to your head - 🎳

  4. This could easily be derailed with political comment but that in itself is needless. This has proven itself to be more than any government can control. Know one can control or appease peoples mental state with month after month of depressing news. Which is not helped with “the news” constantly describing death, rates, shortages, overload, etc. Then of course positive news doesn’t sell -

  5. I’ve used Balanced Power Technology (BPT) transformer line conditioners for years. All my gear is plugged into it. Not sure they remain in business. And yes, they are quite heavy. Used them for so long I can’t say what audible difference it makes but initially I “think” I “heard” a quieter background and the presentation did “sound” different. Please note quotations on key words.

  6. The distortion provided with a tube amp and phono Might make a Springsteen recording sound better but not better enough for me. Wouldn’t walk across the store to see his show. On the other hand it’s obvious he didn’t rely on my being a fan to cash $500M from Sony? - so he has that

    Heritage Jubilee money is pocket change for the Southern Gentleman. Don’t let his cute little emoji fool you. But curious minds would appreciate a little more info. And I bet it ain’t Klipsch -

    Spent the past few days watching movies and concerts and I have to say I'm done!  Done searching craigslist multiple times a day for Klipsch.  Done searching Facebook marketplace multiple times a day for Klipsch.  Done searching eBay multiple times a day for Klipsch.  I finally have the setup I'm 100% happy with!

    - Oh, you silly boy. You ain’t done. So long as you continue an “audiophile” - you ain’t done —

    Boy's GF is sposed to be flying into Tucson [from DC] today. If she can get a non-stop to Phoenix, she might make it ... assuming someone doesn't get road rage and need to de-plane early

    IF she can get a non-stop, Assumimg no road rage - you know it is 2021/2022, right? Just sayin’ -

    Risk?  They played roughly four full seasons of risk, and before that, high school.  One more game suddenly becomes too risky?  That's like a fighter pilot saying no to orders because they are getting out the next week.  Sorry uncle sam, but another flight is just too risky....are you on the team or not?  Did you benefit from being part of the team, and now it's time to step on their heads on your way out?

    You’re right, risk wasn’t the proper term. With this generation how about selfishness, “me me me”, and it’s true - there is no I in t e a m -

  11. When hasn’t it been amount the money? The difference now is players being able to dip their toe in the money pond. And liking how refreshing it feels why risk their personal future as College Pond flows into The Ocean of Money -

  12. Last night we got lucky with nearly an inch of rain S of KC. That could have easily been 10-12 inches of snow with typical December weather. Low 40’s last night, sunny upper 50’s today. Apparently a cold azz weekend approaching but with the great December weather we’re having I shouldn’t, won’t complain.
