  1. Yes to the Bianchis! First one was a Veloce that was Bianchi’s signature color, celeste. The two words combined so nicely into one I decided to create that as my handle. My second Bianchi, which I just sold this past summer was a fantastic Freccia Celeste, which at the time was Bianchi’s top frame, the EV3. I’m down to two bikes now, an all-roads bike and a folding bike. I don’t ride as much as I used to and now the most important part of my ride is where do we stop to eat! Back to audio now…..
  2. What about your system is no longer wowing you—that is the question once answered that will lead you to your answer. Hopefully it is not change for changes sake. You have some nice gear there.
  3. Enjoy the Audiolab! I feel the same about the AVA. I’m very content with it. It is about as basic as it gets, sounds great, hopefully it is maintenance free, and that is what I wanted.
  4. https://avahifi.com/products/set-120-control-amplifier Might this work for you? I just got one while on my quest to simplify and it sounds very good. It is a 60wpc single ended transistor amp with a four input passive preamp and a headphone jack that doesn’t switch off the speakers when a headphone jack is inserted. There is a switch on the back of the amp to turn off the speakers. It sounds very good. Fast, articulate, detailed, and solid bass. It replaced my Quicksilver Integrated which I liked a lot too but I wanted to get away from tubes because I’m in the frame of mind that if something happens to me I know no one in my family would ever want to be bothered with tube gear! Anyway, read about it if you are inclined.

    Jokes?

    Brilliant!! Great idea!!
  6. We had a 1989 Taurus wagon with the optional fold down third row rear facing seat to make it a 7 seater. The kids called it the secret seat. L trim which was the lowest level, didn’t even have power windows! This is 1990 but essentially unchanged from 1989.
  7. I love wagons. We almost pulled the trigger on a Buick Regal TourX wagon but didn’t because we didn’t really need it. I have a Golf Sportwagen and my wife drives an awd Regal and it is a very nice vehicle, thus the desire for a Regal Tourx. It’s too bad this country rejected wagons in favor of SUV’s and CUV’s. The last generation of Regals are rebadged Opels and have a European driving feel. The sun sets on the last American badged wagon.😪
  8. South Jersey. !https://southjersey.craigslist.org/ele/d/swedesboro-vintage-klipsch-klipschorns/7374620468.html Only pair I see even somewhat close to New York.
  9. Let’s get this thread back on track!! Morticia!
  10. Mrs. Howell could have given them both a run for their money in her youth:
  11. Industrial split La Scala. $800.00 for the pair.
