Solid state amplifier $2K Used or New
I second the Bryston suggestion. I personally dislike Classe (sounds to me like it's loaded with a bunch of butterflies), but lots of folks really like it. Over either of these though, try the older McCormack amps (get your hands on a revision A u... 
Care to share your scams?
I have been contacted by your boy there Cornfed, or one just like him. I recall laughing hysterically for a long time after hanging up thinking it was the funniest prank call I had ever heard. 
How much are you worth ?
How much are you worth ?
So how do you put a value on: 6'1", Adonis looks, able to run a marathon, highly educated, well travelled, fluent in seven languages (including that special language--Love!), hung, wealthy, charming, personable, with a choice of about 10 different...

New category for trades?
Another excellent proposition by another one of Agon's finest. Don't know how many trades would occur because of it, but it would be fun to try just to see. And I'm sure Agon wouldn't mind creating it, I mean, what are they doing anyway, besides s... 
Disappointed in SACD player
Damnit! Dbear44 said what I meant--only lots better than me......nice post, Dbear44. 
Which came first, the chicken or the egg
I have no explanation to give you. Ordinarily the membership is all but helpful, including all above, and there is no real bias against HT. You've read some other threads I'm sure, it's ordinarily pretty tame. The Carl thing is a special case but ...
