The major issue is that he's a packrat and I have to get through mountains of "stuff" to get to them buried somewhere in the back of his pole barn.

More like 60's-early 70's if it's tubes. I'm sure it's awesome kit. Tube stuff is usually pretty good and was made in an era when all stereo equipment was a luxury of a sort; thus, it was engineered to a much higher standard than gear is today.

I'm just hoping when you finally get there the stuff isn't black, plastic, and doesn't say "Yorx" or "Soundesign" on it.

a friend recently started a conversation about headphones, brought up Bose and Skullcandy, so I schooled him a little, and that was that...

 

a couple of days later I get a text: "I just got my Etymotic Mc3s. They sound really great!"  :)

My sister was giving my crap about getting more headphones*now 3 pair all under 200$* and then I proceeded to ask how many shoes she has, her reply was"shoes are a necessity to life, and all i have are snow boots and tennishoes" i then said they are consumable as she has never had a pair of shoes for more then what...a year or so? I counted 35 pairs of shoes *most like....9 inch high hooker heels* all 65-150$ and yet owning...300-500$ worth of audio gear is "wild and frivolous" the average consumer really cant comprehend anything being better than what the T.V. tells them is.

BTW, sorry if it seems like I'm spamming this thread. I'm just really bored and this is a great discussion.

As I was reading this, my friend asked me on facebook, "Are Skullcandies good for gaming? I wanna spend about 90$ on a good pair like you have."
