    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    Back to the earlier discussion on Telarcs, I finally got to unpacking the CD's this morning. Have a few more of them than I remembered. This is the glass half-empty part of having too much stuff. Not that there can ever be too much audio stuff of course. But if it were possible on a...

    There are only 3 rules for this thread: 1) No politics or religion 2) Don't be a jerk 3) There's no such thing as too many amps 🤣

    10 amp? Chumps. Real men replace fuses with a solid copper bar. 🤣

    Both are princesses. But Sophie is the Queen. :laughing: However, there are many things that improve with age: tubes, bourbon, and Michelle Yeoh. She didn't stand out to me in Tomorrow Never Dies, but I loved her in Star Trek: Discovery. Talk about a home run in casting...

    Can't argue with that, but that's also kind of cheating. He's the best part of whatever movie he's in. He could probably play Barbie and make it believable. But Sophie Marceau is still the queen. :laughing:

    Everybody can have their favorite Bond. But when it comes to the women, there is only one true queen: Sophie Marceau. 🤣

    Obviously done in anticipation of 1958. 🤣 If we're switching to station wagons, then this. The vinyl siding they hoped people would think was wood was only for the well-heeled. 🤣

    My best bud in high school had a '69 AMX (2-seater) with the 390 engine. That thing would fly. He had it for almost a year before he wrapped it around a tree. Fortunately he was not seriously injured. The car? Not so lucky. :slight_smile:

    Any particular car will depreciate the same whether you pay cash or take out a loan to buy it. Leasing has advantages too depending on the situation. I've always purchased with 4 year loans, and then driven the car until it dies a natural death or falls victim to death-by-wife. 🤣 Between...

    My last Ford (other than company vehicles) was an 84 1/2 Anniversary edition GT-350 Mustang. 200 HP which is pretty anemic these days but was a LOT back then. Just one teeny issue with it -- if you mashed the accelerator close to the floor it would stick. Wide open. Switch off ignition, coast...

    Nice! Too bad you don't still have it now. You could sell it for $20k more than you paid. :laughing:

    1958 is when some of the coolest people on earth were born. 🤣 🤣 Have a '58 396A in Vali 3 right now. But I can't say I like it better than a '50's triple mica Foton 6N3P. Different sound to be sure. May change my mind with different 'phones.

    What @Ripper2860 said. :slight_smile: Seriously, that's a great way to get good tubes, as most members are not going to knowingly sell you a crap tube and you'll likely get a much better price than going through a (reputable) vendor. You might also keep an eye on the classifieds here, or even...
