Re: Amp for CRS3s, CRM2s, and CRS3C?

Greatly appreciate the offer and picture, jjptkd! I'll reach out to you when the funds become available (if of course you still have it). As of right now, I'm currently dealing with a broken CRS3C due to shipping. If everything works out and I don't end up heart broken, I'll post some pretty wicked ...

Re: Amp for CRS3s, CRM2s, and CRS3C?

Appreciate the offer. Bought a pre the other day which maxed out my budget. Still need to purchase the interconnects and speaker wire (as well as the amp). When you get a moment could you perhaps send me some pics either on this post or privately? Only when it's a convenience for you. Not in a treme...

Re: Amp for CRS3s, CRM2s, and CRS3C?

I'll follow the advice. Appreciate the guidance from the three of you. There's a Sunfire Cinema Grand Architect for $1395 on audiogon that I've been eying with two days left on the listing. Need to do my research a little further to determine whether it's a good deal - been out of the game for a whi...

Amp for CRS3s, CRM2s, and CRS3C?

Hey guys, Long time no talk. Haven't been on this forum for roughly 6 years, but I've finally come full circle - perhaps in life and in my audio journey. Married, moved back to the Phoenix, new job (s), and three more children per my wife (they're actually dogs). The recession hit me pretty hard fin...

Interesting Cable Test

Subjectively speaking with somewhat interesting findings concerning the comparison of zipcord and pricier speaker cables. https://sites.google.com/site/audiosocietyofminnesota/Home/april-2012-speaker-cable-listening-test Even though I view myself as an audio newbie, I still can't wrap my head around...

Re: HDtracks.com

I used to download a bit of stuff from that site, but then I ran into a bunch of issues a couple of months ago. Customer service was a little slow in getting back to me. Once we were able to connect I was able to get what I bought...but still had the same difficulties a week later. Since then, I've ...

Wow. That's like Netflix-WTF-Were-You-Thinking.

I didn't think it was going to be that big of a drop.

Re: what an idiot

Don't you have to break the tube to be exposed to the mercury? How would he prove direct causation of mercury poisoning even if he had broke a couple of tubes? How do we know that he didn't get mercury poisoning from paint in his house? Seems like you would have to disprove a lot of other factors be...

Audiogon Turned Confusing

Is it just me, or is Audiogon's new search function more confusing? I just tried doing a search of a manufacturer and the listings were organized in real no order. Preamps, amps, phonos, and dacs were all shuffled up. I tried figuring it out whether or not there was a rhyme behind the reason, but I'...

Re: MIT Exp1 v. Signal Cable Analog 2 IC's

Haven't heard the Signal Cables, but I have AVT3s throughout the system. Prior to that, I had audioquest (can't remember the names though). And to make this post even more useless, I can't remember the differences I heard, except that the MITs sounded steps above my low-grade AQ ICs and speaker cabl...

Squeezebox Touch Toolbox 3.0

So I found a great deal through Logitech and threw a new Squeezebox Touch on my high interest cc. Simply put, I've been having a lot of fun messing around with this little unit. I'm not willing to put down $150 on a linear power supply, but I have been trying to get the most out of this unit through...

Re: Modest System

Not really. It's been so long. I worked there between 1999 and 2000. I remember Chris, Spencer, and AJ because they were my long time friends in high school who just so happened to work at Domino's.

Re: Modest System

I used to live around the corner from the intersection of the Woodinville-Duvall Rd. and Avondale Rd. before there was anything there but Norm's Resort![/quote] And then Safeway came in with Movieola, Domino's, and that dry cleaning business. I've probably delivered extremely late pizza to either yo...

Re: Modest System

Hey MB, the Hawks won -- who woulda thought?

Also, I saw you're out of Woodinville. I used to live by Cottage Lake Elementary and spent the majority of my childhood in that area. Woodinville sure has changed since I graduated from high school in 2000.
