    Default Need an electronics gadget christmas "buy this" list

    Its almost that most terrible time of year again, and my mom is bugging me about getting me stuff. If I don't get her a list soon, she'll give me a bunch of crap I'll have to stand in long lines to return. Anyhoo, have you guys seen any electronics freaks shopping lists? I saw the latest Home Theater Review mag, and they had some decent ideas, but would like a broader range of stuff (all electronics in general, or just generally cool stuff for a guy).


    TIA!

    Ask her for something from here . Ask her specifically for the amp at the top of the page. But before you do, I advise you to click the "pricing" link to the left of the page.

    Crazy.... 350k..... who has that kinda money to spend on an amp? lol

    I also have no idea what I want but it seems like the only reasonably priced audio stuff I want would be what exalted mentioned. Cables and wiring or maybe some cd's. New music is always good.

    I just said wires, or money/gift cards would be nice. If they get me mall gift cards, they can go towards my upgrades, like those MB Q's.:D

    I should also say I don't need any "big pieces" for audio (especially since they're generally out of her price range). This would be stuff like
    speakers
    TV
    sources
    pre/pros
    amps
    stuff of that nature

    I'm so close to saying "I'm gonna buy the stuff I want, you can partially pay me back for whatever"

    I wouldn't mind a gift certificate for there either. I'm actually thinking about taking a ride up to their store. It's only about an hour or so away.

    You can always ask for accessories or music. Remote Control, SPL meter, Avia, that sorta stuff.

    MadMax has a real ugly watch for sale on the Flea Market. Your mom might want to scoop it up for you if you're into ugly accessories.

    Ask him to knock-off the price further - he's misplaced the matching decoder ring.
