  1. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Been busy with our house closing so missed a bit. Glad all the NorCal peeps are OK. Hoping for better air and maybe some moisture to help out the situation. Stay safe.

    So what you are saying is your post is an advertisement?
  3. The State of DACSES

    Yep, I am one of those that like the Sonica. It’s ability to stream was what convinced me I would like a more capable streamer.
  4. The State of DACSES

    So I am feeling the itch to upgrade my digital front end with a streamer and DAC or Streamer/DAC. The contenders right now are the Bryston BDP-3 and Bryston BDA-3, PS Audio Directstream DAC w Network Bridge II or the Directstream junior DAC (most likely the latter as the former seems too expensive given the differences), Auralic (either the Altair or the Aries and Vega) or the Nativ Vita and Wave. I know we don't really discuss audio components anymore but if anyone has any positive or negative comments (relevant or not), about any of these or any other suggestions would be appreciated as I am still in the early research stage. Now back to discussing alcohol and other matters of more importance.
  5. Happy Birthday Steve!

    Happy Birthday, Steve!
  6. Happy Birthday Jim!

    Thanks for the birthday wishes. Went out for a nice dinner at our favorite Japanese restaurant and over indulged in Sake and Sushi. Since Karen’s Birthday is three days before mine our new house will serve as an appropriate present for us both.
  7. Happy birthday Stretch!

    Happy Birthday, Andrew!

    Everything is fine here. Had lost power between 11pm yesterday and 9 am this morning. Spent the day raking and cleaning up relatively small debris. Some minor damage to the porch screen door was the extent of the physical property damage. No flooding at all by us but I saw pictures of some locals water skiiing with a pickup truck in downtown Daytona Beach. Glad everyone else is also OK.

    Inside bathroom + bathtub + mattress + alcohol = makeshift tornado shelter. Living in shitty college apartments during central Illinois tornado season tests your creativity.

    While I do not want to downplay the severity of the storms here, they are reporting cat 0 tornadoes, which people in the Midwest view as excellent kite flying weather.
  13. Ye Macce Threade

    So our old AirPort Extreme (the last Mac mini form factor model) just gave up the ghost. Was working when we woke up, then about an hour ago it went away. No power at all. Luckily I had bought a new model refurb a couple of weeks ago. Now up and running with much better speed and consistent connectivity throughout the house. Was actually going to use the new one in the new house so we would have connectivity in both houses during the overlap. Guess it is time to order another refurb.

    We are also staying put since it is tracking west. Verizon just sent a message that we have free unlimited voice, text and data for the next two days. Let the streaming begin!
  15. What are you reading now?

    Just making sure I am doing it right.
