Ozzy is done
 I heard about this on the radio on the way to work this morning. Too much pain from back injury/surgeries is the reason he gives for not touring any more.  They did say on the radio that Ozzy would still perform some, just not on the road.  Glad... 
Fisher RS-1080
Sorry lardawg, I deleted my post when I realized what I found was the service manual, not the users’s manual. Whole different animal. The service manual IS available on the internet for a free download if you want the link anyways. https://www.au... 
Replacement Speaker Grilles
1. If you can find what you need cheaper, can't blame ya there. The grilles I needed couldn't be found anywhere except at his site. OEM, reproductions, etc, I had no luck finding them elsewhere for years. 2. The reproductions I did buy are FAR mo... 
Blank audio cassettes ARE still made, even in the United States
 I just deleted my message that says Lunchbox Audio is out of stock on the ATR Cobalt Gold Series blank cassettes.  After I placed my order for two 5 packs, they notified me that they only had 4 blanks in stock. Apparently when they picked the or... 
Blank audio cassettes ARE still made, even in the United States
BTW, just tried to order direct from ATR. The Silver series tapes are available from them. The Gold series tapes are sold out. I believe I have found a source for the Gold series at Lunchbox Audio: I ordered two 5 packs of the Gold series ... 
Blank audio cassettes ARE still made, even in the United States
Thanks for the input atmasphere. I just yesterday received a nice vintage Harman Kardon TD 4800 cassette deck. I've wanted one for years and finally scored it. This deck sounds SWEET, even with a 40 year old prerecorded tape. I've been research... 
World's Best Stereo System ?...
'course I do ticat.  
Speakers with deep/powerful bass
I like my older JBL's. I have a pair of L100T's and a pair of L100T3's. Even at low volume I can feel a can of soda vibrating in my hand when listening. At high volume pictures hanging on the wall have crashed to the floor. Got rid of the pictures... 
World's Best Stereo System ?...
The "world's best stereo system" is my own. A. It does what I want it to do. No more, no less. B. It sounds great to me. Better than ever thanks to some advice from Audiogon members. C. It's paid for and I could afford it without taking out a m...

Sorry Elliot, I misunderstood you. I thought you were selling BLANK tapes. Now I realize you're speaking of pre-recorded tapes. Woops.  
Fluorescent light noise through tuner
 Can't really get too far away from the lights with the antenna. I could test somewhat by hooking stuff up upstairs when I get the time. That would tell me if it's air or the house wiring. That still wouldn't solve the issue downstairs though. Or ... 
American Made Audio Products
@oddiofyl   Yes, they sure do a lot of their work right in Binghamton. All of it I would guess. Just for the record though, they do use some parts made in China. I'm not talking about resistors, capacitors etc. Heavier stuff like heat sinks, spea... 
Best Basic CD Player (no SACD, USB, etc.)
If you want the best bang for the buck, look for an old Harman Kardon HD 7600. The 7400 is pretty much the same  but with less features on the remote control etc. Saw a 7600 on EBay a few weeks ago for $175. I've got a 7600 and a 7400. They sound ... 
What's the oddest thing in your music collection?
I have the Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen version of Hot Rod Lincoln.  
Blank audio cassettes ARE still made, even in the United States
I bought some new old stock cassettes a few years ago from a few different sellers but didn't have any luck with them. If I had to guess they weren't stored properly. They didn't record well, poor sound quality. I'm not speaking of what you're off...
