  6. RIP some fuck or another

    Sorry Todd. RIP Carol and best wishes to your brother and their kids. Very sad.
  7. Speaker Porn

    I admit it -- though primarily a headphone guy I enjoy drooling over pictures of beautiful speakers. For the artistry, for the engineering, for the lulz. I would enjoy seeing particularly striking examples you may happen to come across. These really struck me today. New Vienna Acoustics Klimt series. Concentric midrange/tweeter units adjustable for tilt and toe-in. Murata supertweeters. Eton spider-cone woofers. 22Hz - 100kHz. The black one makes me think of Barad-d
  8. Happy Birthday Colin!

    Happy Birthday! Gorge yourself while you still have the magic metabolism!
  9. What are you EATING right now?

    Marin Sun Farms? That's a guess not a Google.
  10. Happy birthday, Steve (swt61)!!!

    On the contrary, I rather think one would need to relax it!

    I mean, who doesn't like sausage rolls?
  14. The analog thread.

    OK to have one for non-specific vinyl discussions?

    Welp, now we're totally screwed ...
  16. There doesn't seem to be one specifically for general chitchat that I could see? Doubtless will be heavily shoveled-upon if in error in this matter. Anyway, nice update of the 13" Macbook -- now Pro -- today I thought. $100 price cut and FireWire makes a comeback, adds LED backlit display, support for 8GB of RAM, and the new uber-permabattery (OK, not unmixed blessing). Also thought $30 for Snow Leopard upgrade was pretty fair. Leaner, faster and (allegedly) fixed fucking finder would be well worth that to me.
  17. Whisk[e]y-Case

    Sounds like a cream for yeast infection. Do not want.
  18. Ye Macce Threade

    HomePod just plonked on the marble kitchen counter with a hard tile backsplash behind it sounds miles better than the in ceiling Sonos system. Sonos CONNECT amps are $500 per room. I think they have a problem.
  19. Watches

    A mate of mine is a golf pro and a solid plus handicap and tested himself on a radar launch monitor hitting a dozen or so drives with and without his Submariner on. Wearing the watch cost him an average of just over 1 mph of club head speed, which translated to about 3.5 yards of carry. So there's that, too. Have my eye on a Lange chrono at the moment. More it it actually transpires.
  20. What are you listening to Part the Third

    The Kinks -- Lola versus Powerman and The Moneygoround Pt. 1
  21. Coffee Drinkers?

    Coffee douche identified.
