    What I Got Today!

    Ha, you two have just about all of them except the right one. Didn't think it would take @jimjimbo long to join the fun. Another hint. Sadly towed out to sea in an undisclosed place and torpedoed and bombed to see what it actually takes to sink a super carrier. IIRC, the only super carrier ever sunk.
  2. I typically like something besides WO and OO, but these look like graph paper on acid. Probably nice from across the room.

    Hint, no N in letters before your numbers. I'm somewhere below deck but above the water line when that picture was taken. Correct.

    New view from the work station. Looks strangely small in the picture but it's 20x24. Bonus points if you can name the carrier upper left.
  5. @Full Range hope you are decompressing. Me, I've got the bends.

    What I Got Today!

    Yes. Dozens of fabrics. Soft or firm options. Limitless configurations. Huge storage under cushions. Coffee/Cocktail (no cable) holder options. Integrated "table" for ottoman. Very livable vibe. Probably not for the formal or highbrow crowd. I was shocked to find out they have been around 20 years.

    What I Got Today!

    Pretty ingenuous how modular it is. I was skeptical looking on line, but once I went to the store I was hooked. Any tinkerer, DIY-er or shade tree mechanic would appreciate them, I think. Still waiting on two sets of the covers to show up. Due in Friday. I ordered it on May 6th and got it May 10th and 11th. Crazy fast. Most couches I've bought took 6 weeks to 6 months. They said welcome to the "cult" when we purchased...for now I can see why, very impressed. Time will tell in the long run. Already thinking of replacing the 4 dedicated HT recliners in the theater with a "sac". We went in looking for outdoor furniture and ended up replacing our couch in main living room.

    I bought them from a forum member. I believe they were originally a kit....preassembled for meπŸ˜‰
  10. 30% off this week - get yourself some Bike Fuel. https://shop.justcoffee.coop/
  11. Absolutely if you are doing DSP. I've run Roon on a laptop and NAS. Since moving to an i7 NUC and Rock things have been very trouble free.
  12. After living with both Venus II and T+ BOTH with and without Gaia. I concluded the Gaia added nothing to either. The only difference between the Venus II and T+ was a slight bit of gain on the T+. Initially that made me think it was better/different. It was not. The T+ was just slightly louder. At the same time I offered up the Venus/Gaia combo and T+ and was willing to let the market decide with I kept. The Venus/Gaia combo sold for asking price in less than a day. No more problem with silver and black mismatch. I'm keeping the black T+ but just as easily could have lived with the Venus. I've talked to a couple of other T+ owners and they too felt the Gaia added AND subtracted nothing, we were all using the clock synch feature with dual BNCs. Lots of hype out there and I suspect a good dose of confirmation bias and expectation bias. That said I can't tell others what they can and can't hear. Even if it is just the placebo effect; if it helps, it helps. I think there is some valid reasoning behind Darko not reviewing DACs much anymore. At some level, IMO, I feel there are way better gains to be had with speakers, placement, room treatments, even amps. I'm glad I bought the Gaia and found out for myself. Knowing what I know now, I probably should have quit at the Venus. I really like it and it became the catalyst for me selling all but 75 of my vinyl LPs. One step closer to simplifying and downsizing with retirement squarely on the horizon.
  13. I have a Terminator + (plus) no complaints. Never heard the T2 or Pontius. Have owned Aries II and Venus II, with and without Gaia.

    Thanks, The coworker seems to approve. My first bit of BDI furniture. Pretty nicely build. Bonus grill-less shot. Digging the ATM tweeter. Just noticed the post it note on the wall in first pic. I did that to center the cabinet on the wall. Probably time to take it downπŸ™„

    What I Got Today!

    Love me some Whistlepig! I've got a 12 year single barrel in hiding for the last 2+ years. Waiting for that special moment. This came today. Can't wait to dig into it. Might be the last piece of the puzzle for my office.
  18. Terrible advice. Prices have been on the rise lately. But just a couple of years back I sold two beautiful Walnut Oil B-style Khorns with a matching Belle center channel. All three had Dean-G XOs and original XOs. All three had Bob Crites tweeters and original tweeters. I sold all 3 for $3,500. I would not pay $1500 for those. YMMV.
