    Not the sharpest cheese on the plate when it comes to technology ...

    But two questions about two persistent problems: 1. Re: Passing the hat. The PM mentions the PayPal Donate Button. Where exactly is that? I’ve looked it several different times and have failed to locate it. (I’m using an IPAD if that makes a difference.) 2. Is there a way to time-out my...

    The coffee drinkers club thread.

    Uncle Bingo is right on the money. Jamaican Blue is the best I’ve ever had. I’m presently at the Guelph Jazz Festival and the nice lady in the AirBnB always stocks Jamaican Blue in the rooms. Fantastic. I won’t drink Starbucks, DD, McD’z but I will drink Tim Horton’s. The trick to drinking ANY...

    So Don't I Get the Greatest SS Receiver of All Time!

    I’m a fan of vintage Kenwood amps, love the Ka8004, still have it and use it frequently but NOT their receivers, for some reason. My brother had the KR-9600 (so SHINY) and loved it but I thought it was sterile sounding. I really, really wanted to like Macintosh gear because of the look and...

    So Don't I Get the Greatest SS Receiver of All Time!

    I think a few Sansui fans (5000x, 8080db) might argue with you. My favorite was the Luxman LX-1050 that the nice man who broke into our apartment took with him. (Saved me some future Marie Kondo triaging on that one I can assure you.) My father had the monster Pioneer SX 1980 which sounded purty...

    Tidal or Qobuz

    Quobuz. I’ve used both but continue with Quobuz mostly for classical, especially for ‘newer’ classical. Never had a problem and I continue to learn about new artists daily. All my friends who use Tidal rave about the Tidal/Roon pairing.

    What be this thing? Sansui QS-1 4-Channel Synthesizer Decoder

    That’s sound, informed and logical thinking and your right of course. But ... you seem to be overlooking the fact that the Sansui QS-1 4-Channel Synthesizer Decoder has four meters. FOUR METERS! AND THEY GLOW! Not to mention it’s just sew durn purty.

    Insanity on Abbey Road!

    Oh, I quite agree. People forget how radical Revolver was considering the top pop hits of the day included work by (and this by no means a knock against any of these fine folk) The Monkees, ? And the Mysterians, Johnny Rivers, The Association, Mamas and Papas, Tommy James and the Shondels and...

    Insanity on Abbey Road!

    For me it was Sgt, Peppers, the White Album and Abbey Road. As radical as Revolver was, it was SPLHCB that really shook things up. I was 14 when it was released and I just happened to be at the record department in a Woolworth’s Dept. store on the day they received their first copies. The sales...

    What be this thing? Sansui QS-1 4-Channel Synthesizer Decoder

    I still have my cassette copy of Quadrophenia, does that count? The reason why I didn’t pay attention to Quadrophonics in its heyday was because I really disliked the Who’s Quadrophenia, a complete disappointment to my teenage ears, and somehow I equated the two, i.e., Quadrophonics and...

    What be this thing? Sansui QS-1 4-Channel Synthesizer Decoder

    What is this? An early Quad amplifier? Early 5.1 set-up? Never seen one in the flesh but it looks cool as heck ... but did it work? “An extraordinary stereo achievement, the QS-1 is having a profound impact on the entire world of stereo in two ways. First, it permits stereo enthusiasts to...

    The off-topic decluttering thread.

    I have a growing collection of Scotch and Bourbons as well as Tequila, Irish and Japanese whiskey. I removed them from the hallway cabinet and placed them on the dining room table. I then touched each one and asked myself “Do these things bring me joy?” They were all returned to the cabinet.
