  1. damn retractable tubes? is that the final frontier in audiophile tweaks? adds +500 to the microdyamix?
  2. Hrm any hot tips for good feet for the original kevin gilmore chassis?
  3. Oh yah I know. I'm an inveterate parts/gear hoarder so I want to keep some around just for the who knows what. And also in case they are used in other designs. I don't ever want to pay 6 dollars+ a piece if I had a chance to pay 3 dollars It seems like they will appreciate for sure so if I can afford it now. Also who knows what I might need to trade for in the future
  4. Nod, thanks spritzer. I may reach out in PM when I'm in a position to start really getting my shit together. Thanks in advance and hope Iceland is good My friends keep visiting and I keep trying to steer them to visiting your bakery
  5. Thanks Spritzer. Any advice on 2SA1486 or is bdent the spot? I'm probably going to hit the 200 quantity price break.
  6. I have 2 cases, 2 sets of original boards. Originally I planned on trading a kit to a builder to get mine built. It sounds like I should look to acquiring group buy boards or if you guys ever produce new boards please reach out Also talking to GeorgeP it sounds like besides transistors there are resistors and capacitors that are becoming hard to score too :/
  7. Will do, thanks for the advice. Is there any mention of what to look for in buying a meter in the thread or in other diy threads? Btw thanks for the pics you PM'd me early last year Haven't seen them until this week. I'm glad that it's living up to a decent purpose.
  8. Haha it's not started. No builder and I'm not sure I have the funds to source the rest of the parts currently. Just trying to slowly stock up in spades for the one day. Thanks for checking! Hope things are well. Im sure your system is pretty stellar these days. I barely listen to what I have :/
  9. Purk which mastering/release was is the best sounding for the Eva Cassidy album.. the blix street?
  10. Hi folks. Been awhile... deepak stoked the hunger for finally gathering some of the parts for the original boards that I have. I missed the boat with some parts that were being sold in the classifieds unfortunately, but I'm looking to buy parts from a guy who posted on head-fi. I understand there's no way to guarantee the parts are genuine based on a picture... but was wondering if anyone would be willing to comment if these look genuine. the guy says they were purchased from singapore in 2005
  11. Thanks for the info! Pretty crazy kit. Whoa Barbados? You got a place down there???
  12. Wow what an amazing event. Thanks for sharing the pictures are incredible. Couldn't imagine a pair that could appreciate such an event more!
  13. but it starts out black blessingx... i did some experimentation with freds and sous vide-ing it in butter and finishing it on the grill. first few attempts were over grilled or undergrilled but when i finally got it dialed in about 2 minutes per side on a super hot grill it was pretty insane. has the nice fred's crust but nearly melts in your mouth sous vide texture.

    CHESS

    Hrm you mean shogi?
  15. Dreadhead sucks about the crash. Glad you and the bike are okay. Btw, tried to discern by reading many pages of posts, but could you give me some details of your bikes? I remember you had some kinda insane Giant bike, but curious what else you have. Not really in the market, but it's good to know what you hardcore guys roll around with. It sounds like quite a few of you have insane builds now (VPI, Nate, Justin's cannondale looks great too). I think at some point I will get a decent road bike as I'm pretty satisfied with my mountain bike (Too terrified to really do any serious mountain
  16. Ah wow... I'm always 1-2 years behind head-case in pursuits. I just started crossfitting awhile back and looks like everyone's moved on (Including Justin!!). So sorry to hear about your crash and best of luck on the path to recovery. I got a specialized tricross elite awhile back for commuter purposes. Pretty much just road it to and from crossfit, but outfitted it for SF bike riding as I'd like to get to places with it. Not sure I'm brave enough to bike in the city though, but practice starts this weekend. Probably won't go as deep into riding as it looks like you guys are, but chance
  17. Wow that's amazing. Had my first meal at Cordon Bleu in SF... been wanting to eat at that place for a year+ since I learned of its existence. I destroyed a monstrous amount of food... the 5 spice chicken combo (with meat sauce/rice and salad) and 3 of their insanely delicious imperial fried rolls.
  18. Nod, the reason I said this was a stupid request is that I was told that there's no way to get answers to any further questions so we can't get additional criteria to make the decision. I have no problems with buying a 600 dollar bottle of wine as a gift, but blindly buying 1 seems stupid to me unless it was for someone that cares more about the $ cost than the quality of wine. Though I was told it was to be for 1 or 2 bottles of wine with preference on the 1. That being said Edipis and Tmoney's info probably will fit the bill! Forwarding this to my brother. Thanks guys! Edit: Nvm jus
  19. Pretty stupid request I know. Apparently my brother is trying to help his friend who is buying a bottle for his wine geek brother. I have no other preference details besides maybe a bordeaux or californian vintage. Not sure why people make these kinds of poorly thought out extravagant gifts. Feel like it's similar to if my brother asked a headphone audiophile what they think is awesome and they say Grado PS1000 and he gets me a Grado PS1000. That being said... that's the gift givers problem not mine I guess. Said I'd ask though so here I am Throw out whatever you'd get if you won 500-60
  20. Hrm, kind of tempted. Have a vague resolution this year to go to LA and NY a few times this year which I'm pretty much failing at so far!
  21. Went into the doctor's today! Results were good. No rupture in the ear drum. Clearly a cut in the ear canal with an unstable blood. No IEMs for a week she said (Probably playing it safe, but I can live with this.... probably. We'll see when I do cardio tomorrow ;p). Thanks again for all the info/advice guys. Never been a big contributor in community-sense in this scene, so the outpouring is extra unexpected and appreciated.
  22. Thanks guys its evening now. I'm feeling okay right now. left a message with the audiologist and making an appointment tomorrow
