Wait, so you're saying that the strain relief on the plug is no longer an issue?  Because that one guy's pic on Amazon (and the annotation that it happened twice) is what really bugged me.  Maybe he's just a tool that doesn't know how to take care of his stuff?

I really don't like the way they like hurt and stuff.  It's like jacking into the Matrix, except no kung fu.

Plenty of rest and staying out of the cold are pretty common advice but nonetheless are generally good suggestions. I'm not sure how cold LA gets, though, so maybe that's a moot point. smile.gif

 

Thanks guys!  I've been popping Vitamin C-drops ever since I figured out I was actually sick.  So far, it's a tired, slightly feverish sinus thing.  No coughing yet.  Maybe it's the weather.  L.A. usually doesn't get cold.  But this year is different.  Low 40ºs are common at night this year.  And my exact location (you know what I mean Silent) makes it even more frigid (high 30ºs).

Don't tempt me... I've been seriously thinking about a Magni and Modi stack all day.  However, this has also been calling out to me lately... the TEAC Reference AH500:

Love that brass finish.  Plus it'll drive some bookshelf speakers if need be.

 

EDIT:  Ugh, borders around images look fugly...

First of all, just wanted to chime in on some of the comments about this thread in the past few weeks or so... totally agree, it is so chill in here.  No doubt thanks to all of you guys.

 

I've heard of various member lounge threads being described as cafes, bars, etc.  I think if I had to describe this thread, it'd be a cross between a treehouse and a bedsheet/blanket fort/castle.  It's like a neverending sleepover.  biggrin.gif

Will do.  I tend to mull over purchases for a while, but I'm finding this one hard to resist.  It's part of a whole line actually.  I have no use for the tuner, but there's a CD player and a DVD player that might come in handy.  Now if only they would augment the line with a music server and a DAC, that'd be awesome!

This is what I've heard from newer owners of the UE700. I haven't had the opportunity to A-B them so..

I do. However, more important than the environment is your position in it. Not achieving R.E.M. between the hours of 2200-0200 is stacking the odds against your immune system, leaving you utterly defenseless when your body needs to be at its best - fighting the good fight.

 

Even when healthy, we're battling inside - you were tagged in a weakened state, nuthin' impressive about the nasties there. I look forward to your being 100% warrenpchi soon! wink_face.gif

Hmm, now I'm reconsidering these.

Yeah, I do have pretty atrocious sleep habits don't I?  Part of it is work related though...  Thanks for the well wishes Silent!

 

BTW, who is your avatar?  Looks like Sade and Zoe Saldana had a kid...

Now that you've made me aware rolleyes.gif I'm going to bed right after this post! Though, at this writing I am not sleepy...and I'm craving!!!! If I weren't busy Thursday, I'd run down to The Cobbler Cafe on Crenshaw Blvd for some hot Peach Cobbler w/Vanilla Haagen-Dazs. evil_smiley.gif Then leave there for a Soul Food Kitchen a few minutes south for some Sweet Potato Pie. very_evil_smiley.gif And park under the nearest shade tree for relief.

Remind me to put that Janus-Titanic poster idea in the OP in 4 hours time. On that note, I call dibs on the Attack of Titans poster w/ Jude looming over the wall w/ his pet Cerberus-currawong pet. Get well soon, warrenpchi.

Wait, we're deciding on one poster for everybody?  I thought we were all doing different movie posters for each person?

Oh we're calling dibs?  Okay then, I got The Godfather (or The Judefather) on lock.

Hmm. Never quite thought about it that way, but given the other choices (bars, cafes), never ending sleepover make sense. And, like most sleepovers, nobody ever sleeps. biggrin.gif

 

If I had to come up with my own description, it feels to me like what I imagine a good local Head-Fi meet would be like. Except, of course, without the headphones. From what I gather, at least, the best part of meets isn't the cans, but getting to talk to other people who understand your passion. So it would make sense that, since there's only so much that can be said about headphones and avatars, we'd end up just chilling for most of the time.

 

And then there's Currawong. I actually think the sleepover thing comes more into play here, and he's like the really cool parent who lets you invite all your friends over to spend the night and pops in every once in a while with some Cheetos and hands out a few custom titles. And, he's watching, just in case things get out of hand.

No, more like just posting ideas in one place so that at least people can choose if they so desire, or out of inspiration. Of course, I'll post anything out of Shower Epiphany (C) too.

Look fellas, don't get greedy. Share the posters,...the exposure they bring will allow more to discover this excellent thread. And I'm adding a link to the TMAC thread to my sig later this evening. I forgot to do it last night,...my bad. tongue.gif
