    Kitty Talk

    For some reason, the text didn't save.The cat on the bed is Jack, the wild one. He's seems comfortable enough to snooze with his feet in the air. He's the top cat on the sofa, the other is Ebony, my 20 year old. A long time ago she was just a sad sickly little kitten in the animal shelter.
  2. I'm binge watching my way through the Mandalorian right now. I'll just cancel my month to month in a couple of days. Stuff like this is what tablets are made for. Screw Comcast.

    Kitty Talk

    I've got a black cat that came with the house. He came wandering up after we moved in. It took months to transition him to the indoors. He was king of the backyard, doing battle with anything that moved. He would kill it and drop it on the back patio. After three years, we don't let him out at all. We do let him out in the screen porch. He likes lap sitting, but quite often extends his claws when he's purring and getting a rub. so affectionate and blood letting go hand in hand around here.
  4. That's a lot of money for a unit without much of a track record. It's a reworked integrated tube amp. until someone trustworthy checks them out, it's just another FOTM. And yes, even stereophile is a bit suspect any more. What do they know about headphones, and stax.
  5. Well, I guess it's a way to justify keeping all the gear owned. otherwise, sooner or later we'd have to logically sell some of it. And we all know that's not going to happen....
  6. SO ebay is completely off the rails on all things stax. I see what looked to be a standard bias SRD-7 for $259. Seller claimed it supported pro bias cans. I messaged him to see if it was modified. Answer:no. So another BS claim by a seller. You can plug it in and use it, but it certainly isn't pro bias. It will sit on the bay for the next month like hundreds of other overpriced stax crap, most of it "untested". No wonder multiple miracle stax energizers are popping up from shady start up companies.
  7. The whole shaving off the top of the main transformer scares me. Insulation is there for a reason. 1st order of business, try NOT to kill the user.
  8. Looking like that it's either real cheap or real expensive. Stick to a wall and it's worth $100k
  9. That was my thought, either crap or they slipped a digit in the ad.
  10. Anyone here have experience with one of these? Price is right, but likely too good to be true? https://volumio.org/product/allo-stepped-attenuator/

    Speaker Porn

    I had JBL L100's around for decades. Not the last word in sound. But back in the 70's they were a must have.
  12. The scary part is it will be 40 years next year. I'm getting old.......
  13. If the plug isn't polarized, try flipping the plug.
  14. I reserve that energy for toilet paper purchasing.
  15. I guess it's a good thing I didn't jump in. 😊 Hopefully the bias upgrade was done properly.
  16. Was that the one on EBAY for $150?
  17. This one made my wife laugh. We have a black kitty just like him. Same bit of mischief as well.
  18. Fringe binge about half way through season 2. I saw some scattered episodes back in the day. I joined amazon prime just to watch this. I hope I can finish during the free 30 days. I don't want to give amazon any money I don't have to.
  19. We would prefer both parties to run candidates that are good. Not "ours aren't as bad as theirs". Time for a new party.
  20. I don't normally do. but piled up in the shed? Imagine if the Mrs had seen it. My ears would still be ringing from the screams.
  21. Yesterday me and mother nature did battle. Seems my shed somehow became a snake sanctuary. I commit multiple small murders. They were up on the top of the side walls where the roof meets them.
  22. Time for a angry bunch of looters to show up.
