I have an iPod now and it works great, it's just insufficient size.I borrowed one of those Classic iPods like you see at Ebay, some of them  have huge storage space.   Of course the old iPod like those do not use the Lightning connector so it is n...

Oddiofyl,I feel for you.  I've not owned a Sienna but there is no shortage of bad car audio and tweeters do seem to bring out the worst.  glupson,VW is a great car, but I have not heard their sound system.   I believe you when you say it hurts.   ...

glupson, Your experience is much like my own.   I had a BMW X5 that had iPod connection in glove box.  It played all the files I had on the iPod but I admit most were ripped from CD rather than high res downloads.Then I lost my mind and bought a C...

MRI grade vs Hospital grade electric outlets
I hope I don’t confuse things more. I began Porter Ports many years ago here at Audiogon as a personal project when I rewired my homes electrical to benefit my audio system. I tried several brands and designs of outlets and preferred the Hubbell 2...
