    Outch, those carts are dangerous
  3. Welcome back into Vinyl. If you want to drop a little more coin (around $90) I could suggest the spin clean. Manual cleaning but very easy to use and you can do lots of records in a short ammount of time. http://www.spincleanrecordwasher.com/ To the carts there are many more knowledgable here so I will refrain from including my half knowledge. Have fun with the new table!!
  4. I was expecting worse, hope I look as good at that Age. Heß I don´t look that good now.
  5. One last bump, did anyone get to eat at the Steak and Lube?
  6. One Thing to concider now a days is the engines. B&S was once the best but in the last few years Honda has been making the best. I took mine out of its winter sleep, filled the tank, checked the oil, set the automatic choke and pulled once. Started immediately. Mine is a combination side throw, bagger and mulcher. There is a lot to decide take your time. Edit: Forgot to say I have a push with front wheel drive.
  7. No, the world could already be fed. It is about Profit. GM seeds cannot be used again (saving seeds from crop before) since they are "copy righted" These seeds have to be rebought every year. Pest resistent crops could be produced when they go back to the crops which were grown before and are indegenous to the areas where they originated.
  8. GM is a big no no in Germany. While you in theory could get GM Corn many do not considering the stipulations when you want to plant. You have to guarantee 100% that it will not cross into your neighbors lot. Which is 100% not possible. Also no one would buy it if they knew what it was.
  9. Great to hear, let us know when she starts with the mods!!
  10. Whose project is it anyway? Bruce This really made me laugh, I remembered we (Dad and I) wanted to build a car for a soapbox derby. Needless to say it ended up where my Dad and his friends discussed how and what then proceeded to build it. I did not touch one piece of lumber or nail.^^ Kids and their toys!! Have fun with the project.
  11. Funny I discovered these here (Hannover, Germany) I love me some honey mustard Pretzel pieces.
  12. Nice pups, good to see this got brought to the top again. Here a more recent one of Sion.
  13. Thanks for the tip I have been looking also in thetubestore.com. It could be that I also look here in Germany to save shipping.
  14. Now using IE10 in compatibility mode, no Problems and that was a test for paragraph.
  15. With IE10 I have the same problem with login (thanks for the tip with compatibility mode), the problem with Chrome is formatting. If you want to WYSIWYG you can´t use it. From what I have researched it is the forum and not the browser, I don´t have problems with chrome on other forums. Firefox I have been having problems with the flashplayer and youtube videos but works good with the forum.
  16. Ok did a little reading (should not trust some people) and the KT88 is not a replacement. Sorry to waste your time. As far as I have read a 6SN7GT or 6N8S could be used for rolling. Not that this decision is any easier they start at $15 and go up to $160 as well.^^ Actually I am happy with the sound but I am thinking the tubes installed now are probably not the highest quality and if I can get better for reasonable coin why not try to upgrade.
  17. It could be I am being fed a load of [bs] at the moment it uses 2 6N8P´s. Like I said a tube noob and I will probably have to do some reading. I know how helpful and knowledgeable everyone here is however and thought I would ask. Boxx, I was on the line myself but the wife bought it for me and although used is in pristine condition. I have 3 outputs, tubed, SS and direct digital. I must say the difference between the 3 are night and day. In comparison to my old DVD player when using the tubed output everything got clearer and 3d, that is the only way I can explain it. The SS and direct digital are no slouch in themselves but do sound clinical in comparison to the tubed. Unfortunately the handbook is in Chinese ( A German dealer lets them be built to his specs.) so I can´t do any reading if it is detrimental to have all three outputs connected at once to do fast A,B,C comparisons.This is by no means a top of the line player but I am very happy with it. Here are the specs. http://www.destiny-audio.com/cms/en/cd-player/art.html Hmmm now I need to know if the KT88´s would be a direct swap for the 6N8P´s. Like I said a can of worms.
  18. Cables can color sound reproduction. Wheather it is good or bad is to each his own. Why it has to be so expensive? "There´s a sucker born every minute." €0,02
  19. Welcome to the forum!!! Personally I would save for the reference. The F10 is the starter of the Klipsch palate and it only gets better from there. The other question is do you need brand new speakers? Often you can get great deals on Heritage which would put the F10´s to shame and depending on who you ask best the reference. Just my €0,02
  20. I dont think this will be an easy question, and I realize oppinions are like a rectum, everyone has one. But looking at price differences for tubes, in my case KT88´s what is the big difference? Aren´t they made to MILSPEC and if they reach this all is good? I have a new Tubed CD player and have heard inserting a round of KT88´s really make it shine. The price differences however is making me dizzy. From Electro Harmonix starting at $34 a piece up to EAT which run around $1395 for a matched quad making them $348 a piece. Is that much price making that much a difference? This is my first dabble in Tubes and noob would be an understatement. Any information would be greatly appriciated.
  21. lol actually he says nothing about the parodies. He is just speaking about playing Hitler and the moral issues that came up or not. Just a normal interview concerning the movie what was inserted in the subtitles had nothing to do with it. Interesting interview though.
  22. US = The Letter - The Box Tops Germany = All you need is love by some brit kids.
