  1. I like the GE UltraPRO line of surge protectors...They seem to be pretty robust and they come with blue LED lights that makes it a shame to hide them! I have both of mine on top of the stands instead of hiding them in dust kitten hell! LOL! https://www.amazon.com/GE-Protector-Extra-Long-Warranty-11824/dp/B00OQIKERG/ref=pd_lpo_1?pd_rd_i=B00OQIKERG&th=1 I have a smaller one on my vintage rig too: https://www.amazon.com/GE-Protector-Extra-Long-Warranty-37870/dp/B079RV5TYY/ref=sr_1_23?crid=VJ2FI2BG3QB3&keywords=ge+ultrapro+surge+protector&qid=1660583859&sprefix=GE+ULTRAPRO%2Caps%2C157&sr=8-23
  2. I wont even ask about shipping to PA...shipping costs are through the roof and nothing is showing up in 1 piece! It's like they have a contest to see who can bust the most packages! That is a good deal though! 🤔
  3. When I was a mobile DJ back in the mid 90's...I swore by the DBX 3BX Series 2! It was a quick and easy adjustment that really could liven up a flat track! My DJ group never ran a setup with a 3BX! We also relied heavily on the Rane DC24 2 Channel Compressor / Limiter / Gate! It did a nice job with signal processing as well! I'd like to add a 3BX to my vintage gear stack but damn! Prices are out of this world on used DBX's!
  4. Music is relative to the listener BUT I do think music has gotten worse in my years! Back in the 80's and 90's, music was fun and you could dance to it! There were dance clubs and under 21 clubs and DJ's everywhere but now, the music has gone down hill (to put it nicely) and the clubs have dried up, people don't dance as much or as often and all the new stuff sounds the same. DJ's use digital songs to play their gigs and they are a lot fewer in number with higher prices! Simple observation on my behalf but I truly think the downhill evolution of music is to blame.
  5. She's mint! I do need a new carb and 4 new tires though! I have been spending fun money on stereo stuff instead of car parts lately, LOL!!
  6. 302 built to 306 with mild cam and 289 heads. It has a C4 auto transmission. Just enough to make some noise but still run on pump gas all weekend!
  7. I think this list was voted up by random people in each state so it probably isn't very scientific! Just something fun to look at!

  9. They might be running recount and rebuild tasks which will mess with images and avatars...hopefully they will all return to normal when the tasks are done running!
  10. I have my turntable stacked on top of my receiver right now but I am worried about heat dissipation! I've been looking for an audio stand or TV stand to fix the issue! Plus more room to add more components!
  11. I like this video for some reason! It's like a simple, homemade music video! No flashy lights and crap...just the band and music!
  12. True...I can see Metallica's Master of Puppets sky rocketing because of the featured scene in Strange Things but Def Leppard has been pretty quite lately!
  13. I picked up AC/DC Back in Black for $20 at Walmart...I wanted to get Def Leppard Hysteria also but it was $60...WHY??
