  1. Let me clarify, Mogani sells mic cable and speaker cable by the foot that can be used to make cables. I made all of my own using Mogami bulk cable.
  2. I went much more simpler. Mogami microphone cable for RCA and XLR and Mogami 11 Ga speaker wire for speakers. GLS ends (or GSL I don't remember). Really high quality pro wire and reasonable. http://www.mogamicable.com/
  3. Go into construction and learn the entire trade then become a land developer.
  4. Oh man, how do you manage your workload like that? You need to write a book or do seminars if you have a secret (seriously - I know people that paid very large amounts to consultants as to how to manage their personal time and business). Every professional that I know has this problem, things go smoothly, then a ton of work. Always medium and large waves.
  5. I love to wheel and deal, or at least used to. It turns out that the most millionaires are auctioneers. This makes sense because they are constantly exposed to good and know their value, know a good deal and are exposed to good deals as well as prominent people. That would have been a fund profession.
  6. It will look good on his resume, but more important are the connections that he will (or will not) make. That will help him in his career more than anything. Finding a job, partners to open a practice, etc. As I understand it, medical is difficult with insurance and you have to really hustle to make money. OK when you are young, not so good when you are old. Here is something that he is likely not aware of. As a skilled professional, he will be caught in the professional trap where he only makes money while he is working. The money is good and will cause him to skip other opportunities and he will have to work to earn, as opposed to say, owning a few fast food restaurants and having passive income. He can open a business, but success may depend on the skill of his employees and the good ones will always go open their own practice. It also take a huge investment of time and money to cultivate talent and keep them. I say 'may depend' because in medical, insurance companies are you actual client and doctors tend to treat their patients like crap (10 AM appoint and you actually see the doc at 11:30 - I'd lose all of my clients if treated then that way). He should also read "The Millionaire Next Door" and the two follow up books. Doctors and lawyers are the worst with money and tend to live right up to their means because they must fit the image. I saw that with lawyers where they tried to live like they were making twice what they earned because they felt that they need to project a certain image to the world. Never fall for this BS or you will work until the day that you die. Live way below your means! Speaking of which, professionals tend to due young. I see 60s and 70s all of the time. You have to take care of yourself and the stress is awful. One last thing. Doctors work crazy inhumane and dangerous hours during their residency because of a coked out doctor in the 1800s. He snorted his way through dangerous hours and expected his residents to keep up. Nice legacy. I think he was William Halstead.
  7. $17 is acceptable, add a fancy cover and pay $250, not acceptable...
  8. Do these come up much on the used market. He has only had them a few months, wonder why he is selling. He must be upgrading to these: https://www.etsy.com/listing/746049922/audio-cable-supports-elevators-for?gpla=1&gao=1&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=shopping_us_a-electronics_and_accessories-audio-stereos_and_home_audio&utm_custom1=_k_EAIaIQobChMI6Yvkhu-W7QIVkxh9Ch2DCgWUEAYYASABEgKXTvD_BwE_k_&utm_content=go_1843970779_69216057505_346429258280_pla-355000298316_c__746049922_120562825&utm_custom2=1843970779&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI6Yvkhu-W7QIVkxh9Ch2DCgWUEAYYASABEgKXTvD_BwE&variation0=1275235553 Check out the reviews: Very trustworthy seller. Item is as described ed and works perfectly. Thanks!!
  9. Yea, it is a well built unit, but it also has great DACs for its price. You really need to jump up in price on a DAC to beat them. Same for that MF A308CR CD player on US Audiomart. Quite a bargain at that price, especially with its upsampling. On another note, I ordered some Medify 112 air purifiers on your recommendation. Hope they help.
  10. The Oppo will be just what you expect so you will be fine. I love the A308 cd player, but I do have the matching preamp and amp.
  11. Doesn't that defeat the reason for using an oppo as you are then just using the transport?
  12. Too late but a sweet upsampling CD player: https://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649670696-musical-fidelity-a308-sacd-player-fantastic-sound/ Played mine in a $200K system against a $4K Esoteric player and it did just fine. Love this player:
  13. I once told my mother in response to something, "you have been like a mother to me" her response, "I am your mother you jerk!"

And you'd better pick yourself up from the ground Before they bring the curtain down Yes, before they bring the curtain down, woo-ooh Get up, get up, get up Yeah, yeah, yeah Yeah, yeah, yeah Talkin' 'bout a girl that looks quite like you She didn't have the time to wait in the queue She cried away her life since she fell off the cradle
  15. I sold a pair of B&W N801s and the buyer paid $1K for boxes from B&W and had them shipped to my house.
