  1. Cable arrived. Dac working perfectly. Happy me. 😁
  2. Btw...if anyone needs a dac.....Schiit Modi 3E for $99.00 on Amazon...free shipping.
  3. Ok...maybe a slight bit of forgiveness in sight. Amazon now says "out for delivery". We'll see....***tapping foot impatiently***. 🀨
  4. Seriously Amazon?!?!?! You deliver the external DAC but you don't deliver the digital audio coax?!?!? *** Hats!!! Every last one of those Effers!!! 😠
  5. Problem solved. I gave up and ordered a Schiit Modi 3 for $99.00. Should be here today. πŸ™„
  6. DVD player to Mani to Rogue Audio Sphinx V3 Magnum I had everything plugged in correctly and the Mani was on. I'm guessing maybe I need to find the correct dip switch settings on the bottom of the Mani.
  7. Okay...so, the DVD player arrived. As mentioned I intended to use it as a transport and use my Schiit Mani 2 as a dac. I'm running from the coaxial digital out on the dvd player to the audio in on the Mani. Obviously from there I am running from the audio out on the Mani to audio in on the amplifier. Any thoughts on why this is not working? Please try to be kind as I am a rank amateur at best.
  8. Thanks....now I'm forced to cook up some porkbelly in the smoker tomorrow. An all day endeavor. πŸ˜’ But so effing worth it!!! 😁
  9. No insult taken whatsoever. I just wanted to clarify. No harm, no foul.
  10. I totally understand. Unfortunately I can't speak to those that didn't make it. I however can thank their Brothers and Sisters that did, and let them know that their Brothers and Sisters that didn’t come home will never be forgotten. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
  11. For all that served....thank you.
  12. I can't say enough about this monster. Good gravy!!! Don't for the love of God allow it to open up too much....unless you like skipping your vinyl from start to finish. Holy crap!!! My fillings!!!
  13. Sweet.. The boss just gave me permission to head out to Hudson Valley HiFi to pick up my new toy. JL Audio d110 in Black Ash, which perfectly matches my Black ash Heresy IV's. Happy Father's Day to me. 😁
  14. Argh!!!...So effing aggravating!!! I hate to admit it but I suppose that I'll have to be satisfied with final 4 Rush albums that will complete my set on CD for now. πŸ™„. I managed to pick up a Sony DVD player for $19.00 shipped. I plan on running it out of the coaxial digital out and using my Schiit Mani2+ which has been sitting around doing nothing as an external dac. Hopefully it all works out. I'll keep you posted.
  15. Having a couple of trees taken down next month. Thinking of putting in a pear tree or two in their place.
  16. Wear heavier boots and kill those evil little bastards. Sorry...bee allergy. Nothing life threatening, but I swell up like a balloon. I stepped on one as a kid and the arch of my foot looked the rocker on a rocking chair.
  17. Almost hate to say it, but it feels nice to be back to work. Makes me wonder how it will feel in five years when I can retire.
  18. I don't think that he was happy with me. I had just had a couple of beers with some of his cousins. They were delicious. 😈
  19. Florida trip went extremely well...made a new friend.
  20. Thought I had a copy of Rush Counterparts found for $60.00 until I found out that based upon it's condition it is better suited for use as a large coaster. 🫀
  21. Wishing you the best for your surgery and a speedy recovery. Remember...do what the Nurses tell you to do...they know more than the Dr's 99% of the time.
  22. I don't think I've ever seen a turntable boogie with music like that.
  23. Great album from a musical genius.
  24. Back home in NY. While the trip to see the folks in Florida went well, and I am always thrilled to see Mom and Dad. The fact that it is now 62F outside and not 96F with 100% humidity makes me happy in a way mere words cannot do justice to.
