        The show is a good example of the dangers of sex cults, meth use, how to murder your husband, shady businessmen, etc.

        And then spend $5,000 to have your front yard dug up in a few months to have the waste water pipes cut,reamed and re-fit. Not to mention the backed up sewage clean up in the house. Dumb, just dumb. Better off spending $50 for one of those toilet seat bidet jets.

        I had gotten some "flushable wipes" few years back. Turns out it wasn't so flushable and I had sewer water coming up from drains.

      Customer called, he sat on his Utopia and cracked the yoke. The repair is going to be out of warranty and costly.

        Called him and pitched the Elear yoke transplant idea. He wanted to see if I could buy it and do that for him. Time to open up a Focal and find out if I can.

        There's a broken "for parts" Elear listed on eBay for $275 (with cable and case). The seller is "adorama-trade." Might be worth making them an offer?

        @E_Schaaf, '$1 in manufacturing is $6 or more at retail'

        I always remember a metalwork teacher, at school in 1967 putting the factor at 4.

        In a lowish-cost-item industry, Greeting cards, we used to multiply by 2 to reach wholesale price, but was just the production cost, and the doubling had to cover all other company costs and the profit. Retailer margin on top of that.

        I remember when Axpona was in Jax for Year 1/3 (the guy who founded it lives in my area), too many OAFAS members. The rooms in Year 3 blow as hard as my colon. Only the Soundsmith room was worth it.

        "if that mod makes it sound better" --- not necessary. All it needs is a rumour that it might make it sound better. Stand by for the different-species different-sound battles.

        And that mould might even be... fungus. Idea: when I get completely deaf, I'm going to grow mushrooms in my headphones.

        Yikes. Yeah, I discovered while buying used speakers that part of the question process had to include "have the tweeters ever been pushed in?" I got lucky and found a mint pair of Dynaudio BM12A.

        Felt bad for the dad, the kid clearly didn't understand how poking a $15k speaker wasn't a good idea. Dad decided to call it a day pretty quick since his son didn't stop after pushing it a third time.

        Think next I will try getting some set screws and lessen the tension the Audeze yokes have on the screw sockets as they were not meant for the Hifiman cans.

        Also may need new pads, old pads look, feel and smell a bit.
