  1. I'd read things about it giving up gapless playback, too, for JRiver which is what I have used for years. I'm hoping to use one in the living room tied into a basic amp and speaker setup so my wife can listen to her music while I'm upstairs on the big system. The other one would be nice to tie into the garage possibly. At least that's my thoughts at the moment. $15 isn't a lot of money to get to tinker with something that might work for some avenues. Since I'm Spotify Premium, it should take care of that part.

    Walnut tweeter lenses

    Thank you for the information, Dave. I dig that walnut look better than oak and definitely agree on the wood properties difference between them. Ok, I do have a preference for walnut. haha

    Walnut tweeter lenses

    So what is the dispersion difference in this type versus what comes stock on the Crites CT-120 tweeters? I'd love to have a pair of these or the aluminum for my Belle's if there was a notable difference. Sad thing would be, you'd not be able to see them behind the grills. I like the walnut better, myself. Definitely a solid wood to work with.

    Klipsch RP-280FA Atmos towers $900 a pair!

    Wonder if they have too many in the barn and a new model is coming out fairly soon.

    Last of Google's CHROMECAST AUDIO - now $15

    And, of course, now we have this on the auction site... If dude gets a grand for his, I'll be selling both of mine. haha And apparently they are buying them. Hell, I shoulda bought 10. But I think those are BS sales.

    I just saw that, too. Must have been quite a limited supply.
  7. I envy you..... I do look forward to getting my turntable back out once we get moved into new house and my 1400+ records can be moved from my best friends house back to mine. I have all the tools, etc., to do all the adjustments with and a couple of more "vintage" direct drive (and quartz) turntables in the arsenal including a Pioneer PL-55x and a JVC QL-4F. I run a Shure V15 Type V with a Jico SAS stylus on it. I got the cartridge basically for nothing when I picked up a Marantz 6300 TT from a thrift store years ago and kept the cartridge and sold the TT (too good of money). I may one day buy an actual new table but my older 2 have both been gone through and rebuilt/upgraded where needed....especially in the power supply. That Shure V15 and Jico SAS are a wicked combination, though. Keep at it and you'll get it. There's a lot of fiddling with turntables but they are most enjoyable when set up right. I thank my grandmother in heaven quite often for saving my original records I bought when I was a kid.

    They just sent me a tracking number so I guess at least 2 are good to go.

    Infinity RSII/AB speakers, I think rare

    Great sounding speakers but not sure I'd pay $2300 for them. The hardest part would be sourcing EMIT and EMIM drivers when/if they fail. But they are great sounding speakers without a doubt. I bought a pair about 12 years ago in DFW area for a song....rebuilt them and then a friend wanted them and offered enough that I sold them. I still own a pair of RS-IIIb's which are a step down but easier to drive amp wise and sound quite good.

    @muel BH Photo still apparently has them. I just ordered 2 at $15 each and $3.99 shipping. I guess we'll see if they actually do have them to ship. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=chrome cast audio&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ma&Top+Nav-Search=

    Winter Storm Harper

    I think we're supposed to get a quarter inch or dusting here in central Arkansas over the weekend. Keep that crap away. I need some warm sunny days so they can put my driveway in and install septic system!

    Some laptops for sale soon...various models

    Well, that's the hard part for me....getting away while we're on the final stage of our new house build. My wife and I work almost 12 hour days on Saturday and Sunday trying to get the things done we can. There would be next to no way I could leave and go to LR on Sunday. We're working on installing the stair treads and risers this weekend as the carpet is being installed upstairs (in my audio room) this Friday. Sorry.

    Some laptops for sale soon...various models

    Looking it up, it shows max memory is 8gb so it might "see" a tad less, maybe 7.5, using the x64 OS.

    @rockhound I know for sure it has 4gb memory in it but I can't recall which SSD I went with exactly. It could have been Silicone Power or maybe Kingston. I'll look when I get home tonight and see.

    Some laptops for sale soon...various models

    I apologize that it takes me a little bit to get back to the thread...it's been hectic with all the house stuff and work. Here's some info of the few that I have at the moment.... The Asus model is K60i and I believe it's an Intel Pentium dual core T4400 2.2GHz CPU with a 15.6" screen. Memory is maxed out at 4gb and I think it has a 500gb drive in it. I bought the laptop about a year after I went back to college and it has worked great. It seems like I had upgraded it to Windows 10 while they were offering the free upgrade. I might could put Windows 7 Pro on it it one preferred. I will try to get this one up and rolling tonight. This one would run $100 plus shipping. I have a Dell E6400 Core 2 Duo 2.26GHz with a 14.1" screen that I have put a 128gb SSD in that runs quite good. It has Windows 7 Pro x64 and I believe the video out is the Display Port which can always be converted to HDMI if needed and has a replacement battery that might be 2 years old. This one would run $110 (mainly because of the SSD which is fairly new) plus shipping. There will eventually be a couple of HP's as soon as time allows me to get to them. Remember that these are not new laptops so their batteries aren't as new but both of the above laptops have had their batteries replaced in the last few years. Let me know if any questions. Thanks all!
