    Bad Names for Audio Components

    I just saw a listing for a “Bohica I Power Cord”? In the Navy BOHICA was an acronym for “Bend Over Here It Comes Again”. What are they trying to say about this $600 power cord? Mitch

    Moth Lovers of Europe- This is a Moth si2a3/45h / Eddie Current Black Rose (220V).

    I don't normally do this but I think this is uncommon and already being in Europe is extra points. Caveat Emptor and good luck. I know nothing of the seller or the amp. Looks like a head-Fi member by the name of Kurt? Hey Head-Fi...

    Berning micro-ZOTL and the Grado PS1

    I’m really enjoying this combo. Rumored to be bass light meets rumored to be bass heavy = nice combo. It seems to have the nice mid-range that’s been mentioned before. Using Sylvania Gold Label 6201 and Sylvania 6SN7. It’s a fun amplifier. I was using it with my home stereo...
