Phew, I just got back from Disney On Ice, took the girls to see it... Would have been alright except for they cranked out the sound too high and combined with the wrong music that can be way below average...

Wabo, how did you figure out the Logitech remote after all? I've got a 880 and can't say I'm thrilled with it...

Lol. I've been to many of those live kids show. They're hit or miss. The Wiggles were fun. Captain Feathersword cracks me up.

Went to "I Am Number Four" at the IMAX yesterday. I tell you what, if you're gonna leave your HT and pay to see a movie, the IMAX is da shizzle.

Re the Logitech. I just kept plugging away at it. PM coming.

HTG, cool picture!! That must happen in high end bars where I don't meet the dress code, the blues playing dives we frequent hit us with an Old Grandad right when we walk through the door. Just got a killer Mai Tai recipe though, allegedly one of better ones - my first brush with fancy cocktails.

Nice pic, HTG. That looks tasty. With the weekend upon us, I think libations are definitely in order.

The wife went out of town for a scrap-booking getaway with her girlfriends thru the weekend. I keep asking her if there's gonna be a pillow fight and if so, send me pics. It's just gonna be my kids and I living the bachelor lifestyle. Can you say pizza every night for dinner! That's how dad rolls.

Lol. I can see the double d sportin' his finest Armani, raising the back of his hand to anyone who gets out of line. The Old Grandad in your hand as you walk in the door is a touch of class. Speaking of, please share your Mai Tai recipe. I can sip it and pretend all the snow outside is soft, white beach sand.

Yeah, pimp daddy dd bumping around all dressed up in a red-with-white-stripes custom Armani, hat, yellow hankie and the works, ladies fainting left and right... That's how I roll...

I wish.

I'll send you the Mai Tai recipe. It's from a bartender in an upscale place in Maui who gave it up after he saw me raise the back of my hand (haha). No, a friend of mine went on a quest to find the best Mai Tai which he did in Maui. He was so excited and asked so many "intelligent" questions on the subject that the bartender gave up the recipe.

Not with an outfit like that you won't.

Better to stay home and enjoy your system.

Ya gots to roll with a strong pimp hand!

I look forward to your Mai Tai recipe. In fact, I'm feeling rather parched now.

For a brief time I contemplated (thanks hifi) selling my PPPs and getting the new PS Audio P10. I did however come to my senses, apologized profusely to my PPPs (I think they're still angry with me) and will be sitting this one out... for now.


Bringing back sexy. You know it!

i don't think the power capacity is any greater with the P10 (1200 continuous), though there is a higher current reserve (70A, I think). So unless you were going for the look or there's some feature you liked, I don't see the benefit. And they're twice the price of your current PPPs.

You're absolutely correct, prepress. The only reason for me wanting the P10 is to have the latest & greatest. Plus the front panel display is perty cool. Other than that, there really is no benefit. I can get carried away with new gear. Especially sexy new gear. The PPPs continue to rock!

LOL, I know, I was referring to the "ceegar"!!!

I did make a batch of that it tasted really good but again, I don't have a good frame of reference. After all, no graphs, no blind tasting it's all subjective!!

Oops. It is a nice ceegar, btw.

Lol. I'll try and make a batch here soon. I need to track down all the ingredients. Which will be no small task. Then I will run REW and get it just right.

My new speaker cables arrived today. I just ordered them Tuesday and two days later they're in my house. And that was with free shipping!

As a bouns they sent two free cables along. What a nice surprise. Color me impressed.

Nah, still waiting for the speaks... Sailboat left Italy two weeks ago, it'll probably reach NYC in another 2 weeks then the horse carriage will zoom across the States at a whopping 15 mph... I know, good speakers are like good food, it takes time to make...

Hey, great looking cables! The XLR's are a nice surprise, are they also made by Calabrine? Been meaning to ask you, do you use balanced connections in your system?

Congrats!!

Whassup, HTG?

The weekend is finally upon us. Any big plans? I'm soooo far behind on my bluray watching. My excuse is that my HT was down for five days without speaker cable. I heard about the Calabrine cables on a different forum. Sorry. I just hooked them up last night. Hopefully, this weekend will give me a chance to turn it up!

Hey, dd. What's shaking, my man?

Lol. Yes, that slow boat from Italy can be maddening. From the country that gave us Ferrari's and Lambo's, you'd think they could get the speakers here faster. I like the food analogy. It fits perfectly in this scenario. I'm looking forward to seeing how even more awesomeness your room will become.

Unfortunately, the freebies weren't XLRs. They're an S-video cable and a digital optical cable. But hey, they were free.

Yes, my system is fully balanced. I use all balanced connections. How about you?
