Harmon Kardon T403 Tuner, A402 amp and a pair of EPI TE/100's. Old junky CD player. These things rock my little listening room.

And yeah OP, Tool rocks!

I have an HK receiver as well, great piece of hardware. Trying to figure out what to do w/ it after I went w/ the Marantz separates. I may power some outdoor speakers with it (they're Bose...yuk). Never trust a speaker manufacturer that won't publish specs!
 Quoting: Fret Wiz


Have a ton of other hardware as well, HK430, HK730, large stack of DBX XG Digital series stuff, a nice pair of Cizek speakers, a set of Bose 501 series 3 speakers that I use on the deck..etc etc..but I mostly use the HK seperates and cd player or my T7 turntable.
I'm tired of waiting, somebody push the damn button already!

Thanks, AC, but I just hate most live recordings. I guess I'm a studio whore, but that sounds pretty good! I downloaded it w/ keepvid ;-)

Van Alstine all the way. Magnepan 1.7 Tuba THT. My theater is another story. You are wasting your time with CD. Vinyl all the way. Best production [link to www.youtube.com]

WOW! Magnepan, so epic! Yes, damn it - VINYL! How I can burn a friggin CDR that sounds better than a bought CD is beyond me. We've been lied to!

Ya know, I just love GLP's insight. Audio snobs are everywhere, I don't count myself among them, that's why I started this thread.

I'm curious, is your preferred encoding still DTS? I prefer lossless myself, DVD-A or blu-ray if possible!

What's the last great listen you had, AC?

Yamaha Studio 112
Gibson LP white pearl
500 watt CWR Bassamp

and a harmonica, and gues what, i sing too


ya got great stuff though
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 43901661


Nice! I'm a player, too - got me a Jackson soloist last year and a 2x12 Genz-Benz combo.

How's the BC? I've always wondered about them. Lusting for your Randall! My Pop has a black '72 LP custom and a '54 Telecaster....smoothest neck ever on the Tele & the LP may be the easiest guitar to play, ever!
 Quoting: Fret Wiz


That combo is sweet!!

The BC, it was the guiatr of the universe when i was 16....basicly it's shit man, the wood's not even that heavy,while they say it's mahogany, this is not the case with BC, my best advice, if you like pointy guitars, jackson/dean/old 90's washburns are the way to go, sat away from BC-rich, unless it's a pre 90's mockingbird with neck thru, most of them are red with a black lining,those rock! the rest=garbage
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 43901661


You know, I just always discounted BC's because I couldn't sit down and play them, much like Gibson's Flying V (which I lusted after as a kid). I loved my Charvel Model 6 which got stolen shortly after I bought it...I guess the Jackson makes up for it :)

"Those who would sacrifice freedom for security deserve neither"
--Benjamin Franlkin

No one ever said freedom was safe. Upon true understanding of the concepts of freedom, you shall realize that freedom is the most dangerous choice of lifestyle. There are no guarantees in freedom but those one provides for themselves, at their own will. True freedom comes with extreme personal risk. Are you willing to take the risk?
