  1. A very wise choice of words…..😀
  2. I always quit just before I was about to be fired!😜
  3. I ask this earnestly and seriously: What happens when a restoration requires a modification because of unobtainable parts? I’ve had vintage electronics restored by a techs using their knowledge and creativity to work around problems that could not be fixed because of no longer available OEM parts or substitutes. Where is the line drawn?
  4. 1. It is a corporate decision. 2. It comes from the top. 3. It’s their forum.
  5. I have the Chet Atkins album, Privateering, and Notting Hillbillies which is my favorite of the three.
  6. Proceed with caution. May be a scam. Wording very similar to a known scammer.
  7. I had a lava lamp when I was a kid. I found a newly manufactured lava lamp (nib) at a Goodwill several years ago and enjoy watching it do its thing.

    Vinyl playback has its rituals too, although I haven’t practiced them for years!

  10. I had a PL1000 back in the day (the stand alone auto-correlator/dynamic range expander) and it was a very effective device with phono and tape. I held on to it into the mid to late 1980’s. Once I started listening to more cd’s than vinyl (yes, I was an early adopter) I sold it because the noise reduction and dynamic range expansion were no longer necessary to my ears. For vinyl though, it was a great piece and I enjoyed its benefits a lot.
  11. Sorry, couldn’t resist!
  12. Unfortunately a scam ad, I believe.
  13. I’m impressed by your determination and ingenuity. Be careful firing that thing!
  14. My troll question of the day: Does your system sound better after being allowed to “warm up” after a certain amount of time? Can any sonic change, if said to be noticed, be proven through measurement? 🥸
  15. GLWS. I had a PL1000 for years and it was very effective. I only sold it when I got out of vinyl.
  16. I did a quick search of RP600M II and found this. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1693240-REG/klipsch_1070040_rp_600m_ii_bookshelf.html Check out the photos, especially the speaker terminals. I have no idea what other differences there may be.
  17. AUdio by Van Alstine SET 120 Control Amplifier. Check it out https://avahifi.com/products/vision-set-120-control-amplifier Sounds great with my RP160M and should easily drive any Klipsch speaker.

    A businessman ordered flowers to be sent to the opening of his friend’s new branch office. When the businessman got to the event, he was shocked to see the flowers with the inscription “Rest in Peace.” He was so outraged that he stopped at the florist to complain. “It could be worse,” the florist said, “Just think: Today someone was buried beneath a floral arrangement with the inscription ‘Congratulations on Your New Location!’”
  19. Very good condition MZ2S purchased from LTA as Demo/B stock in 2019. Unit manufactured in 2017. Comes with LPS+ power supply, remote, and three outputs. I primarily use it as a preamp and it is the best sounding preamp I have ever used in my system. It is also a wonderful headphone amp of course and can be used as integrated amp with the right type of speakers. Only selling to get a preamp with more connectivity and features. Includes OBM. Clean unit. Some of the silk screening for the input selector has come off (this way when I purchased from LTA) and I put a little electrical tape on the power cable where the heat shrink tubing slipped off the fabric cover. Please see pictures. $1200.00 firm plus shipping.
