Himalayan SALT Lamp
You must add a a lava lamp in the vicinity of the salt lamp. I'm telling you my bass was deeper and my highs were higher.  Or is it just because I live in MI and the "dangerous weed" is legal for all.  I'll have to think about that for the next 14... 
802d + Carver 350
I'm sure your speakers are (as decooney say a great pre amp like an Octave 10 Audio)  worthy of the 350s (Emma and Sheena) are my pair.  They will drive those speakers like a rented mule (no animal cruelty meant) Call Frank or Bob.  If you need a ...

What has been your costliest mistake in this hobby?
Really......."I paid for it alright".  That's your answer to having no morals, no values, no ethics. no character, no manhood.  OK I'm sure you think in simple, one thought sentences.  I'm sure you have never asked yourself what it means to be a "... 
What has been your costliest mistake in this hobby?
If this is a true story, and I doubt it.  I don't know how you can smile every evening at 6:30.  I honestly don't understand it.  You admit in a public forum that you are a liar and in this case also a cheat.  It is one thing to say well I don't k...
