My system sounds better than ever.......Yet, I STILL bought another preamp!!

Your favourite Rush albums?
prof,You're entitled to your opinion. You should probably ask the opinion of the fans who were waiting for the show. I don't think it matters whether Peart was on his sailboat or riding his motorcycle, he should be there for the soundcheck and eve... 
Your favourite Rush albums?
That’s an interesting post about the November,1981 Florida concert. I don’t think it matters whether it’s Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney or Neil Peart. If you are putting on a concert (and getting paid), you need to be there. Late is bad, not showing... 
Your favourite Rush albums?
I love Rush, particularly "Moving Pictures" and "Greatest Hits". I really enjoyed the documentary about Rush’s final concert tour. Today, I bought "2112" and "Hemispheres" on the recommendations of the audiophile Rush fans here on the forum. I’m l...

jetter,erik did a good job of explaining himself, but I'm sure he appreciates your leaping to his defense. I really have no issue with erik, I'm just tired of these random and all too frequent Tekton threads.

erik,You say you are "...neither a fan boy nor a detractor of Tekton," yet you are the originator of this thread and the most frequent responder. I have to ask you, what is your affiliation with Tekton?Please don’t tell me that you are just an ent...

Please, let's not denigrate a line from a Dylan tune. I'm quite sure he would want no part of these discussions. Just to recap, what is disturbing are the frequent threads that are slipped into the forum by people feigning enthusiasm for particula...

Oh please, not ANOTHER Tekton thread!  
Cassette tape
I'm no cheapskate but don't forget that you can still find good quality cassettes at thrift store for twenty-five cents, yes $0.25. I also find CDs at thrift stores for forty cents, yes $0.40. Good times! 
Do you have any concern for the environment when keeping your equipment 24/7 ?
Wow! These threads really cause people to reveal their political leanings. Yikes! 
Do you have any concern for the environment when keeping your equipment 24/7 ?
No concern at all. Global warming, global cooling, to me it's all just nature..

“Fishy” is an understatement. These shill posts are way past fishy! They’re simply deceptive. I can’t be any clearer.
