Talking about keeping some spare fuses on hand made me laugh.
Whenever I stop at RS, I take every single package of fuses that they have for every rating I use for the various maggies I have. They always look at me like, what the...?
I keep 1 package of each type behind each speaker, so they are not only handy but it helps me with keeping an eye on my 'inventory'.
The CC-I and CC-3 must be completely indestructible as I never blew a single fuse on either of those models.
OK so I lied.
I did win something once and it wasn't at a carnival either.
I won the Pioneer Elite CLD-95 laserdisc player at a hi-end shop in NY once. Some of you other old folks may actually remember what a laserdisc player was, and a damn fine machine it still is.
Lots of stuff on those disks that never made it to DVD and there is even less hope of that material ever making it to blu-ray.
One disk I have was done frame by frame and took them 7 yrs to create.
That same sort of imagery I think most any computer today can re-create on the fly and is probably just some sort of screen-saver, lol.
As a matter of fact, now that I'm thinking of it, I'm pretty sure that was the day I met Jim Winey. He was at the store with an attache case filled with CD's all laid out in the order he wanted to hear them. They had MG20's perfectly set up in an otherwise all Levinson room.
I must have spent close to two hrs in there with him, [at his invitation] listening to the best set-up I had ever heard, along with some of his stories. Like how they came up with the names of every speaker they had ever made. It actually did make for a very interesting afternoon. Unless of course, you were not a maggie fan!
But really, is there still a prize for winning?
If Magnapan hands it out I'll take a CCR. That would at least help in partially recovering the cost of fuses
