    To further clear things up:
    I found an old PM from Ted dated April 2008, after treatments were picked up:

    To which I replied: yes, I forgot the Gramma platforms, give me your address and I'll...

    I went back to a CD the other day. It skips like mad! Upon holding said CD up to a light, several pin-sized holes in the aluminum data layer become visible. Yay, CD disc-rot after only 16 years! I...

    Hand-built stuff isn't always better, or even equally good. Why would hand-pulled cable be better than machine pulled? Do the human skin oils contribute something extraordinary here? Is it too much...

    For $2K+ I'd like to see much better build quality aesthetic and a more rigorous devotion to technology. A Teflon dielectric is ordinary even in the $200-300 price level; where the heck are the ideal...

    I'm too young (29) to remember Heathkit from my youth, but I recently picked up a rebuilt pair of the W4-AM mono amps (probably late-50's vintage). They sacrifice on bass impact - but they get the...

    Damn, well if unloading it for cheap and in a crunch for cash, then I'd just pick up a used Denon DVD-2900 or 3910 for $200-$400. They sound quite good and also play SACD if you ever run into any of...

    In the $1000-1500 range I'd keep an eye on audiogon for Meridians - specifically the 508, 508.20, 508.24, 507, or 588. Man, those things hold their value well.

    Probably comes down to the panel type used. TN type panels are far more common, but S-IPS panels have better off-angle viewing and colors, supposedly at the expense of some contrast ratio. That Sammy...

    Perhaps he was referring to tube biasing? Only amps that need to be biased, need biasing with a new set of output tubes. Failure to do so could result in premature tube death.

    80W class A is nice but that's a lot of heat - the designers and builders better have known what the hell they're doing if that amp's to last. Jungson looks like one of those many...

    It's worth it if you stick to your engineering path.
    Not worth it if you end up deciding on a completely different career path, later on.

    If it's "way too bright", such that it requires a drastic change, I wouldn't assume a amps/preamps/etc solution at first - they can make a big difference, but rarely so drastic.

    All my indoor gear pics are taken with the aid of a tripod, long shutter speeds, 2-second self timer, and custom white balance. Two standard (cheap) torch lamps.
