Certainly!!! Do you think, in person, I would say "going to" and "because," and then write "gonna" and "cuz" on a forum.

Mike, you are no less an intellectual than I ( I can't speaker for Tom). I was reading a recent post of yours (in this thread?) where you were talking about automobile engines. My eyes glazed over, my brain fogged up, and I marveled at your knowledge and understanding. The only difference between our intellects is they are inspired by, and attracted to different things.

Did you bother reading the article I linked? There was an entire group of confidant audiofiles who could not pick out the $12,000 tube monoblocks that was mixed in with a $200 receiver. I appreciate your recomendation for the Scotch, I believe you're also into wines, I'd like to repay the favour by recommending this, a staple for kids who came of age in Canada in the 80's.

I'm sure there are $12,000 tube amps that sound just like any sand based receiver ... you have to aim a bit lower, something like a sweet sounding Antique Sound Labs MG S1 15DT.

Yes, I am particularly fond of the Charles Shaw Shiraz (also known as 2 buck chuck). You just have to let it breathe a bit. Everyone likes a good concord grape juice, Kedem is an excellent choice.


Look, I kick back with a bit of Laphroaig and water, turn the lights down and listen to jazz on the tubie ... I can hear the tube difference, and I don't think it is because the fire bottles are distortion generators (thanks Alan), it's because it sounds ... sweeter, more like live music.

Lol, as a side note after visting Seattle it's a 3 buck chuck there. That will be my intellectual, and based on proven research contribution to this topic.

Oh, you can "speaker" for me if you like, Jack Nice post. Yes, we are quite the mutual admiration society of late.

Mike, Jack's right. As I age, I embrace diversity more and more. In this case, the ability to teach and learn in different styles and among different genres. I'm totally with Jack; your comprehensive knowledge of engines and HDMI is deeply humbling.

But - for the record - my brain did not "fog up".

God loves diversity; otherwise, He wouldn't have made us all so different. I've resolved to savor the moments and the people and allow their experiences to enrich and expand my perceptions.
