It's my head mechanic's ex-wife, who lives next door, trying to make it seem like some type of community action group. Which is funny, since no one else in the area has ever complained. She has called the police several times however, though never said anything to us directly about the supposed "unbelievable noise". However, they told her that since we aren't in the city, and the county has no ordinance against loud noise during the day, she could go pound sand. I'm just...
For $700, that's about the best you can do in a balanced DAC. If my budget was that strict, I'd elect to not get the USB version.
Most of what I'm hearing is that, for the SL65, $12k /yr is about par for the course, if you daily drive one, which is what one of my mechanics was doing with that one. He's since bought his own used SL55 and is leaving it alone now.
Remember I was talking about the `05 SL65 AMG we bought for the price of a new Mustang? Well, looking at records, we've put >$8,000 into it in service and repairs (parts alone)... and it's been ~9 months, not counting having to replace the motor for the hardtop retraction system, right off the bat. The first thing to crap the bed was the intercooler pump, then closely followed by the main ECP module (we then went with a more robust programmable Renntech replacement) and a...
So the garage is being sued for excessive noise, but we're 1/4 mi from the city limits... in a county that has no noise ordinances. Really? Really?!
Yep. That's about right. I think these are easily $400 cans in their own right, and you can't just plug them into your phone or Clip+ and get their full benefit. Even a relatively cheap FiiO E18 or similar is enough (I have one and it's a fine little portable amp).Hey, another Knoxville Head-Fier, cool.
A small update. Man I hate dealing with tiny one man businesses. I've never worked so hard to get a car in my life, talking about the "bargain" 308 GT4 Dino. It took 2 pickup attempts, 12 phone calls, and a threat of legal action (I'd already paid and then couldn't reach the seller), but its finally arrived. Then, to top it off, he kept several of the trim pieces and now he's disappeared again (no big deal, we were probably going to replace them anyway because they were...
Billy, maybe you should check out the Xuelin IHIFI770C, for $100 it can't be beat, apparently.
Great pics, looks like it was a lot of fun.
I received a PM asking if I was going to turbocharge the new Viper. No. But, we are going to add N2O to see what that's like. Eleanor has a Speedtech 100-300hp dual-stage system that's pretty fun (make sure you're pointing in the direction you want to go) and we're going to try the same on it.
