What I Got Today!

Recommended Posts

Very nice!

 

Better change the:

"The neighbors hate it, the dogs are scared of it, the wife doesn't understand it, and my friends love it."

 

I think she does...... :emotion-22:

Merry Christmas!

So the Mrs. (Claus) had a little present under the tree for me... caught me totally by surprise.  New RC-64ii.

It's rare to find a woman that understands your addiction, but even rarer to find one that supports and enables it as well.

 

She's already planning the Father's day sub and birthday surrounds purchases.  Ya, I'm spoiled.... not such a bad thing though.

 

Now I need get a wall mount for the t.v., but she did mention that a bigger t.v. would be nice...  Is that a hint?

 

Merry Christmas friends!  I hope that Santa was as good to you all, as she was to me :D

I know what your saying with the wife thing..... my wife loves our audio gear... and most of the junk i'm into....

 

Congrats on the new RC-64ii ..... very nice..... enjoy....

 

MKP :-)

So, something rather unexpected showed up today - and it's going to be getting a full blast of attention over the coming few months.

Courtesy ala-ZEUS. :)

I checked it out, and underneath some of the splotches is quite the beauty of a horn. I'll be having it checked out by one of my buddies sometime this week to examine it better and get an idea on repairs to make her shine again. I'm thinking she will probably end up in my collection with Lindsay and Kimi.

That being said..."Korot" doesn't seem like a very good name...so I'll have to think of something else.

Grazie Mark (ZEUS)! :D:)

Actually, ZEUS. :)

I sometimes forget how many people are on here...and who calls who by first name or username...I'm terrified of the day that someone calls me by a screen name in public. Yipes!

Got my modded Chinese amp back on the right, as well as a custom amp on the left. Both are extremely nice musically. Courtesy of the tubes section.

 

Overall, I had a very nice Christmas season for myself. Dual 1229,701 restored, class a set amp upgraded, and a very nice dual mono amp. There is a nickname on the amp already in the forum,just have to upload my dancing video for it.

VERY cool. With no disrespect, there are a lot of great names associated with Zeus' own mythology, and that of his progeny.

Looks like a typical taylor fair... sitka top and rosewood back and sides. 11/16's neck with a drop in saddle in what appears to be a 25.5" scale orchestra cutaway. Not a big taylor fan myself.

Waverly tuners or some knock offs???

Dear heavens. Four splitters.  From China.  Four bucks.   :blink:

 

After that bit of exciting news, all of the sudden my otherwise boring life looks rather glamorous by comparison.   

 

Thanks!  :)  :emotion-21: 

 

(and Happy New Year)
