  1. Dell XPS 9570 and thunderbolt dock. Needs a new battery, but otherwise works perfectly as a desk-bound device. 15" matte screen, 1TB NVME, 32GB RAM, integrated graphics + GTX 1050ti discrete GPU, upgraded to Win 11. Includes the OEM charger and a Dell TB16 thunderbolt dock. Plays digital music like you cannot imagine (Roon, Foobar, etc) $800 shipped and PP'd in the CONUS. Open to offers.
  2. Ha, go figure. Never encountered that phenomenon myself.
  3. Still is. My FIL is a HAM and continues to send/receive them as he works other HAM's around the world. The radio work and science behind it is a big driver of the hobby for him, and dovetailed into his career. But there's also a geography and collecting/cataloguing component which overlays with the hobby and drives him to keep up with it.
  4. I was a Spotify user for a long time - their pricing and curated playlists are solid, and cd quality streaming has never been essential for me since I have a healthy local FLAC library. The problem, however, was that I had planted a flag in Roon for my local music playback, and Spotify integration doesn’t exist. This made for some very cobbled together solutions and a disjointed listening experience. I’ve tried tidal in the past and wasn’t a fan of their recommendation engine, nor do I care about MQA. But I wanted a streamlined approach for my ever changing whims and finding music outside my local collection. Qobuz fits that fine - the recommendation engine still isn’t as robust as Spotify, but it’s good enough, and the Roon integration is superb, along with the ability to purchase and download drm-free music.
  5. GET OFF MY LAWN!
  6. SouthWest Audio Gathering, and this was from the 3rd iteration. We shoot for annually, but sometimes life gets in the way.
  7. If you know, you know. A good time was had by all who attended. Image courtesy of an attendee.
  8. i did, yea. i repurposed for other uses and over time they disintegrated.
  9. No, I started using these a few years back.. https://www.supplyhouse.com/DiversiTech-MP-4-Rubber-Anti-Vibration-Pad-4-x-4-x-3-8 they’ve got some cork + rubber sandwiched variations as well.
  10. So no refund, and he's "selling" the amp elsewhere?
  11. Oh nice! I went through some old threads here as part of my decision process and saw that you had gone with a Bonavita at one point. I didn't realize you ultimately went with a MM. Two brews in, and it's everything I hoped it would be.
  12. After much wringing of fingers, a Moccamaster. Went with the 60oz CDT Grand since I work from home these days, we like to entertain, etc.
  13. Bump. Still looking to move this piece as I get my final system state sorted.
