        London it’s the near city for me to explore audio. Audio santictuary is the best by far. Penney it’s the best seller, cool guy, very correct and helpful. He has no BS try to selling to you

      Yes, I have Nova v Michigan in my bracket. Nova was the first college hoops team I followed in the ‘80s and I am a UofM grad.

        'grats to Villanova. Would have preferred Michigan, but love the Wildcats too and clearly the superior team won.

      The only stop on my son's chess tour I actually enjoy is the state in Saratoga Springs. Woke up sick and stuck at home and missing the trip.

        Saratoga Springs is where state championships for rowing always are. Its a nice place. When I am there I am usually rowing though. Mostly focused on making it to the finish line.

      PMx2 has shipped and should arrive on Monday. Now really need to settle on amp and DAC.

        @jowls, I know it is. Just cannot decide between the Pro version and the more consumer friendly ADI-2-DAC version. Honestly, cost is not the issue. While I would really like balanced options, I also want the remote.

        PMx2 via ADI-2 DAC SE output doesn’t suck. From memory, at least as resolving as Pro BAL output. I cannot comment on other nuances as I’m unable to directly AB. Unless you need ADC I think you will be very happy with the DAC version and PMx2.

        I am going to try to make it to Audio 46 tomorrow to see if I can demo the Clear - which is listed as in stock. They carry the LCD2classic but don't seem to have it in yet.

        Thanks for the kind wishes. @Kunlun , nothing extravagant. I just bought 3 Iphone Xs and dipped them in 24K gold, platinum or silver so as to have some choice to suit my needs depending on my clothes for the day. Kitten is awesome, but completely insane.

        Poor sap in Singapore dropped his hours-old X onto transit tracks as he was on the way back to the shop to purchase Apple Care for it.

        Last I heard he's still waiting for service to cease so the transit people can pick it out.

        If your face melted I assume the face ID would stop working. Then you'd have to type some pass code in? How 2014...

        I really like mine, faceid is great, there’s lots of little things it does I wouldn’t have thought of. The oled screen is nice too. And the X is blazingly fast, but the 8s have the same chip

        Went far enough north to be right on the edge of 'the band', so got about 30 seconds of totality. Didn't get quite as dark as I thought it would, but Venus was out! Pretty cool!

        I'm in SouthWest PDX.. about 30 mins from the PoT.. 99.5% eclipse coverage, I think.. it was really cool. Weather was gorgeous today.. blue skies and brilliant sunshine. The eclipse was cool and very eerie.. like someone very slowly turned the dimmer down. Interestingly enough, I felt myself getting kind of tired drowsy as it occurred. It was so smooth and subtle... yet obvious.
