        While I realize those in the hurricane areas are used to it, the storm was a real eye opener in the NE

        I watched it from my hotel in Queens last night, and drove thru some of the aftermath today. Really amazing... and the images of Philly are really stunning. I-676 I drive all the time... just... wow

      new tubes for the Mogwai today - Bendix 6889, RCA 5691 red base. Stunned at the improvement, can't take the HP's off... work tomorrow - ugh

        Ampandsound amps sure do react favorably to different rectifier and pre-amp tubes. Enjoy!

      I need to rethink my "I'm more a tube guy" stance... too many good SS loaners have come across my desk lately. Jot2, BHA-1, Black Amp...

      moved my headphone setup tonight, plugged the amethyst in and no power. Not a happy camper. Anyone know if it has a fuse somewhere?

        Understandable. I also freaked out when I blew the fuse on my Starlett and there was no power.

      traveling sucks - 9hrs on OH Turnpike waiting for a towtruck. Then 2 days in a hotel waiting for car to get fixed. Traveling sucks

        Not American, never been there, so hey, probably skip this, but...

        Seems to me that, regardless of the political future, there is currently a job to be done in America. That job requires a guy who reeks of competence and shows up people who don't, skill in oratory and adversarial questioning And reasonable decency. Job requirements. If not fulfilled, job won't be done.

        @Thad E Ginathom ... absolutely correct. And neither of our candidates are even remotely up to the task. TBH, anyone up to the task wouldn't want anything to do with the job given the current political and media (social and otherwise) climate.

        The whole thing just needs rebooted. Give them all an early retirement, send them home and shut down DC.

        Maybe you guys could borrow Britain's Starmer: he's good at handling Yellow Man, he could probably handle Orange Man. But there's a long time before he gets to fight an election. Which his predecessor screwed up completely.

      2 wks with my new 3F, and now it's stuck at the office and the office is shutdown. I'm experiencing withdrawal symptoms...

        I feel your pain— lent out the Bifrost and HP-3 to a friend and I'm letting him keep em until past quarantine, at least (same dude whose ZDT Jr. got friend under my watch, feel guilty about it). May what you have on hand ease the pain somewhat :))

        First thing I did when this all started was drive out to my office to do a gear collection. Can’t be without audio!

        unfortunately, I was doing a kid collection (had to move 2 out of college dorms - Purdue & Western Michigan) and when I got back 3 days later the office was locked up tighter than a drum.

      No need for Gungnir Multibit anymore, Amethyst inbound from Hands... Can't wait!

        I personally would rate the Gungnir Multibit > Amethyst. But as always it's a matter of taste. The Amethyst is definitely a nice piece of kit and someone else might think the opposite.

        But the Amethyst is good enough to impress a previous generation Musette hater. It's that significant in resolution improvement without losing the NOS flavor. It just took me 2 songs to figure that out. Jazz is a must listen...

      saving for a Gungnir Multibit, hope to have the $$ by the time they announce Gungnir Multibit A2
