  1. I'm sure that this is all true, but he's still scary with a set of K1000s on his head!
  2. :rofl: My favorite Southpark episode ever. "I can't take the pressure!"
  3. No, John's a good guy and not a fanboy. vchoheda is a huge RSA fanboy and might have done it, but I would think he would try to sue you to death.
  4. Especially with a set of K1000s on your head!
  5. Who cares about the hammer. I want to see pictures of the Hydrogen Torch! Ok, the hammer is pretty spectacular, still ...
  6. That list must be huge by now. How many times have you had to upsize your disks to hold it? In this case though, you don't have to make it any larger. www.dictionary.com seems to think that "ought" is an acceptable variant of "aught". I am assuming that's how you'd like to see it spelled.
  7. Good? Good? I see that you are going for the understatement of the oughts too!
  8. The thread suddenly became interesting to me. The OP has discovered that a "lifetime" warranty is not exactly what he thought it was: http://www.head-fi.org/forums/3536861-post7.html. He was undaunted and decided that it was great anyway. It's a wonderful example of "inverse sour grapes".
  9. You can do a search on google. The most useful link I found was www.wikihow.com/Clean-Battery-Leaks/Spills. What you do many depends on whether it was an alkaline or acid battery that spilled and it's unclear which it was by your description.
  10. One GB of memory for my laptop. Unfortunately it had two 256MB cards so now I only have 1.25 GB instead of 1.5 GB. Still it's a huge performance increase to go from 512 MB to 1.25 GB.
  11. Rio Grande. I have a soft spot for Westerns.
  12. Agreed, but see previous reply. Also, Xin products seem to be in constant upgrade and that feeds the phenomenon. All one gets is a "snapshot" of the current product and it often is out of date by the time it arrives. If someone likes the Xin business model, of course they should participate in it. I'm just saying I don't understand liking it or putting up with it. Each to their own!
  13. I agree. But sending it back in for updates seems to be part of the "Xin Phenomenon". It's part of what I don't understand. Any amplifier you have sounds better than any you don't have by definition.
  14. I can't explain it. I can understand neither the Xin nor Storm Audio phenomenon. With Xin, you at least get product, but it seems to be out of date by the time you get it. So you have to ship it back for the update.
  15. Darn, and I thought it was a bargain!
  16. If you can come up with just a few more bucks, there's this! http://cls.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/cls.pl?intatube&1202448642
  17. 8 regulation hockey pucks. Perfect for Santa Barbara.
  18. Bingo! In all the audio forums in which I've participated, I've seen many people search for the perfect sound by agonizing over minute differences between equipment, by constantly "upgrading" their equipment and by trying all sorts of "magic enhancements". Yet I've found that nothing effects the SQ nearly as much as the SQ of the recording. A badly recorded CD played by the latest APL NWO and comparable equipment will sound worse than a similar but well recorded CD played through a modest, but competent system. In other words, the best upgrade one can do is to buy well recorded software. Unfortunately, it seems to be difficult to find well recorded software of artists we like to listen to. Also, this doesn't mean that I don't think that my eXemplar Denon 2900 isn't the best digital source that I've owned. Of course, this is all my opinion. You can have yours too, even if it's wrong!
  19. Gee, I thought that paying $18 for 8 pucks was high. Actually, it was 8 bucks for the pucks and $10 for shipping and "handling". Thanks for the suggestion though. If the pucks don't work out I'll seriously consider the APCD2 discs.
  20. Yep. First place I looked. I also stopped by Big 5. They at least had hockey sticks and floor hockey pucks, but no regulation hockey pucks. It's not surprising considering that the nearest ice hockey rink is in TO (I think), 60+ miles away. Sports Authority had no hockey equipment at all.
  21. Thanks for the suggestion. The tiles are somewhat irregular so it would be difficult to get a slab to lay on them and not rock. I just ordered 8 hockey pucks. Not surprisingly, it's impossible to find them in Santa Barbara, CA.
  22. I need to find some footers for my speaker stands so that the spikes won't damage a tile floor. I've used quarters in the past but they have problems. Does anybody have a favorite footer that they would like to recommend? If not, I probably will go with the Head Case approved "Hockey Puck footer". Thanks in advance.
