    Default how about this.....

    What gear do you hope to aquire in the next 1-2 years??

    I thought about that a good deal on the 1300 mile drive from San Antonio to Charleston.....

    Here is some stuff that I would like to aquire in no particular order:

    good cd player (that is top of the list)

    AR-9's (new, well, hell, I would take a vintage pair as well)
    Boston Acoustic A - series, either A40's or A100's
    Magnepan MMG's
    B&W bookshelves currently held by another forum member
    GAS ampzilla//Thalia or Theobe preamp
    Phase Linear preamp/amp ( a vintage rig would have a high cool factor)
    cable/interconnects for experimentation
    smaller SDA's
    Carver Amazing's (that's prolly not going to happen)
    Dahlquist passive sub and x-over
    Carver amps (not really picky which ones)

    just curious what things you guys are drooling over...

    A couple decent sand or passive pre's (top priority now)
    Maggie MMG's
    JmLab Chorus 706's
    SDA 2b's

    I was almost ready to go with the Ryobi, but have heard good things about the Deere's. It'll run me about $250 for the top-o-line, but it should be the 'BOMB'.

    Can't wait to start some major wack'en.

    No. It's got a slight bend in the end. (not like Clinton though).

    You can also purchase other attachments like a, blade edger, a tree trimmer and a roto-tiller.

    Home Depot has'em. But I cannot find them on their website.

    Man, I'd watch those with attachments, I've heard as far as weed wackers go, straight shaft, the rest is crap......

    I've never seen a landscape company use anything other...and those bad boys have to WORK....

    Yeah, but they also spend $800+ on their's. They buy the super-duper industrial strength models. I know the model below the one I was looking at is a straight shaft, with attachments. Maybe I'll go that route. It's about $50 cheaper.
