I stick to the bottom end of the dial over here. ;D Odd, I have been listening to Steely Dan the last few days. :o

I was flipping through the forum before my registration was confirmed and found this thread while I was listening to The Royal Scam! How crazy is that?

Hey schwarcw: great link!

In the truck at work we usually keep it tuned to 88.3 WRCT. I can't get it at home but if you live near the city, check it out. You never know what you'll hear on that station. It could be absolutely terrible or fantastic. For anyone on the far-left (like way left) they have a political show on at 8AM called "Democracy Now." There's a good show on Friday afternoons; that guy will play anything.
Up there: M-Audio, Cambridge, and Monitor
Down here: M-Audio, Parasound, Onkyo, and DefTech
Over there: Sony, B&O, JBL and Polk

Hi, I have a Carver tx11a, bought from vintage hifi. LOVE IT!  Best tuner I have ever owned. Most of my listening is on FM. I mainly listen to BOOM 97.3. 
Need more Carver! Comming soon a pair of silver 7t's!

Just picked up a beam box and an active Parsec antenna from the 70's.  Havent tried them yet.  I will check them out vs the new terk stuff and let you know what I think, when I get some time.

Anybody else ever use these.  The parsec is powered 12VDC, I need to figure out the pin polarity if no one out there knows it.  I have not even had time to open it up yet.
