    Default What to do with leftovers

    So today I got about a 1 hour break after working about 11 hours, and decided to F around with the Home Office "RIG"

    I recently moved the LSi 7s upstairs and plugged them in to the Qinpu A3 mini amp, and it sounded good. Today after stumbling over my Yamaha M80, i decided WTF plug that bad biotch in.

    So I plugged the out put of the Qinpu into the M80 inputs and connected the LSi 7's to the terminals, and fired up my laptop with Spotify playing thru an Audioquest Dragonfly.

    It really kicks ass...The propeller on my hat was spinning at warp speed!!! If you have never heard an M80, do so before they become extinct. I have an awesome specimen considering it must me going on 30 years old. Hope I get another 20 out of it. Shout out to Falconcry

    I do need a bit of cable managment

    oh yeah a pic:

    I usually either eat them or give them to the dogs. :-)

    Seriously though that's really cool. Nothing like unexpected audio surprises, especially if its with stuff just laying around. Enjoy!

    Did you get Unified Messaging too? You get voicemails in your email as .WAV files. Cisco is the shizzle 4 sure

    My company called it Unified Communication. We don't get WAV files in our voicemail that I am aware of... And as the IT guy I should probably know if we do lol.....

    Glad you are enjoying the synergy.

    I'm a fan of the old Yamaha's myself. I have 2 M80's, a M70, and a M85. Class A will definitely bring some heat. Enjoy.

    Same system we use at the USDA. The Unified Messaging is great and annoying all at once. Great in that I can erase my annoying voicemails from my email without ever having to pick up the handset. Hehe.

    Don't those Yammies run in Class A for a few watts! In any case, pairing tubes with an SS amp often yields good results!

    Have fun (love the Knight Rider meters on the front!--very "period appropriate").

    That's amazing Mike, that amp is like 30 years old and still kicking ass. When I hear this ,I have to seriously wonder if the amps we are buying today like Emotiva, Parasound, Adcom, W4S, Outlaw Audio etc... are still going to be kicking ass 30 years from now? The Japanese sure know how to make them.

    I guess the quality 2 channel stuff will last, but for multi channel we will all probably evolve into the next technology anyway, and the 5 and 7 and 9 and 11 channel stuff will be handed down. The question is will it survive the zombie apocalypse?

    I usually look for recipe that needs leftover ingredients. Do not just toss those leftovers! You need to make them last, because you are a responsible citizen of the world.
