Yep, I had a radio show at the time and I pre-recorded my shows in that setup. Out of the picture to the right were two turntables and record storage above. It was a big desk. Very big.

I will now be buying a bamboo back-scratcher. I forgot how useful they are.

Commodore C64, a dream never come true when I was young.

Meanwhile I was breaking my fingernails on a Sinclair zx81 foil keyboard, typing a couple of Basic programming lines. It had whopping 1028 Byte, yes 1 kB RAM to work with. Where are the days. But those simple Basic lines were the first steps towards the job I have now. No regrets at all.

It would just say buy the dragon and be done with it on a loop repeated.

Al’s not the AQ dragon pusher. I am lol. He is not an Audioquest fan. Stealth is his cable drug of choice. He has a ton of hifi knowledge and great ears so he’d be a natural!

Back in those days cables were limited to whatever two dollar cable that was supplied in the box with the gear. I wish I had a time machine and could travel back with a handful of todays cables.

I have never sold any so I am printing 6 of them right now. I will be able to figure out the price when done by calculating the weight of filament used and time taken to figure out power consumption. Will let you know later or tomorrow.

A month later, integrated the REL 510s and threw in some mood lightnings. A5s breaking in nicely, enjoying some really nice high def shimmering bass, a new experience for me. Watched one of Paul’s video where he mentioned he was building some near field sub to mitigate room issues and thought hmm… can I address some of my 40hz suck out by moving the sub closer… and yes! lifted it almost 10dB I think, pretty happy. Thanks Paul! :slight_smile:

I like and appreciate that kind of floor lamp. They have to survive me kicking them as I don’t seem to be able to avoid doing it. It could be my superpower.
