    Receiver recommendations for rc10s

    The A-35R eats the T-amp for breakfast. As for the inputs, you can use any input except the phono input.

    Could never justify coughing up for ceramics, they just seem crazy. I've been rolling China Bones for over 9 years now, they've never let me down. I used to use FKDs but they get fcked by rain way too easily, hence the name I guess.

    Post your computer specs!~

    Very nice build! Only thing I'd be a little worried about is the OCZ psu as it's based on a cheaper Sirfa design.

    B&W vs BOSE SPEAKER

    I really doubt someone who is shopping for a compact all-in-one solution is really cross-shopping with a full size Maggy set-up. No all-in-one solution will sound great comparatively but it depends on what the constraints are. The Fatman dock/amp that's listed above paired with a pair of Atoms...

    Krell system with Vinyl? Possible or not?

    Neither has a built-in phono stage so you will need to buy an external phono pre-amp.

    Please help me pick a DSLR

    The usefulness of a high flash sync speed to freeze motion depends on a host of variables such as: what you're shooting, what focal length you're shooting at, your distance from the object, which way the subject is moving in relation to you, etc.

    Please help me pick a DSLR

    A higher sync speed allows you to use fill flash. Say you're shooting in broad daylight where anything slower than 1/400 would result in overexposure, a high flash sync allows you to still use flash while shooting at the fast shutter speed, which allows you to fill in shadows, etc, that occur in...

    Is a "penny" worth more than a penny?

    Both the nickel and the penny cost more to make than what they are actually worth. As for source material costs, the pre-'82 pennies actually contain $.022 worth of copper these days.

    Is a "penny" worth more than a penny?

    10,000 pennies would weigh about 68.5 pounds. Assuming you could get 68.5 pounds of actual copper from those pennies, at $3.25 a pound for scrap copper, you could theoretically get about $222.
