If I get 11, I may incline to accept a 69! You know, I am a very open minded kind of guy!

While 1,6,7 seems to apply to many MLC young adult including myself.  
 
I found  
1,4,7,  
2,5,8,  
or  
3,6,9  
 
even more interesting combo together :-)  
That list must be carefully arranged ...

1 6 7!  
 
You know what. I don't give a damn about any of the 1 to 12 except number 11 which is the only one I want to make sure I am practicing correctly and enjoy getting the end result. I sincerely don't think you need to be having a MLC to have such behavioral symptom. Number 11 is always there, in our genes!

contradicting yourself……  
 
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  
 
Really! Am I? How can it escape my attention?  
 
I think there is a big chance that I am in MLC. I seems to fit in perfectly to below descriptions and I can also see myself getting to be very good in performing some of below such as 1, 6, 7 and 11 coming.  
 
 
Individuals experiencing a midlife crisis have some of these feelings:  
1. search of an undefined dream or goal  
2. a deep sense of remorse for goals not accomplished  
3. a fear of humiliation among more successful colleagues  
4. desire to achieve a feeling of youthfulness  
5. need to spend more time alone or with certain peers  
6. abuse of alcohol  
7. acquisition of unusual or expensive items such as motorbikes, boats, clothing, sports cars, jewelry, gadgets (Hi Fi), tattoos, piercings, etc.  
8. depression  
9. having remorse for one's wrongs.  
10. paying special attention to physical appearance such as covering baldness, wearing youthful designer clothes, etc.  
11. entering relationships with younger people (whether sexual, professional, parental, etc.)  
12. placing overimportance (and possibly a psychologically damaging amount) on their children to excel in areas such as sports, arts, or academics

We use to have an off shore team in Kiev Ukraine, when our team visit Kiev, they were very good in getting our team drunk heavily and quickly. They only drink vodka. So beware of Ukraine if you have a weak liver.

Not certain what u exactly referring to but in case if you are talking about teens and gals. Let me remind that under age is illegal. Young but not under age are mostly troublesome. Mid age good looking women are mostly highly demanding in every way. So, what only left is nanny and the very mature.

The conclusion I came up with is either Thailand or Ukraine.

sell the other gears and not the Lenco  
----------------------------------------------------  
 
Why going through all the pain to buy and then sell ar! Should never have got them in the first place lor!  
 
The emerging use of CNC and computerize programming is the essence of good sound and well design equipment? Personally, I like to keep reminding myself about how the majority of music originated. I never hear of a violin made from a computer enhanced software lor.

A Lenco at a Hi Fi Show ! Dynavector DV 505 arm with Denon 103 in a wood body right ? I guess the idea was to sell the other gears and not the Lenco as most people would turn their nose at such a turntable.  
 
You can read up on Agon on what TT people have replaced with the Lenco, the standard reply is normally a VPI TNT, the most outrageous is a Walker !

Failed !  
 
I agree the brunette was cute. Fortunately, I had a media pass, so every time I walk by them, at least 50 times, It wasn't too awkward to repeatedly check them out & they gladly post for me. In fact, she ask me to photograph her by the FM Acoustic ...

Cadiver, I did what I can given the not so impressive analytical or observing skill I have inherited from my old man and all I think I have discovered in this second attempt is the changing of ..........two sexy hostess red colour dresses to white.  
 
Now, I must admit that I prefer red over white for the simple reason that red remind me of the highly reputable and only a nurse knows how better to operate "hospital property" plug we were so excited about somewhere amongst 1pk.  
 
Am I good enough to claim my reward please?

Schiit audio has a small section in the show too, ran out of time to check them out. They are nowhere close to Woo Audio fun, safe to ignore until next time. Since they are so affordable, it's attractive enough to just buy it, use it and return it if it sounds like shit. I am keeping an eye on their DAC development.

>> Did you listen to the Soundsmith Strain Gauge ?  
 
I listen to everything I photographed, I ran out of time .... I also attended the show with a "Press" (media) badge instead of paid general public, that's the same type of badge as Stereophile & Absolute Sound reviewers, so I am generally treated slightly better when it comes to Q&A & listen request or photograph request ....  
 
Is this the picture Sound Smith you are referring to ?  
 
Anyhow, the only VPI with the Sound Smith cartridge was one of the best analogue sound in the show. I haven't had time to edit everything I would like to, I was going to rate those photographs 1 to 3 and 3 being the better sounding in the spectrum.  
 
This VPI set up was a 3 to me. That room was not intended to sell VPI, so that table was optimized not for sale !! In show condition, everything you hear could discounted at least 50% ... yet this a very comfortable system. Many other analogue mega systems sounds a lot more 'call for attention' of itself then musically pleasing. The other table I enjoyed a lot was the one equipped with the Ortofon MC Anna, MC Anna sounded outstanding to me ! More so than the Dynavector XV, there were several Lyra too which were less striking than the MC Anna. The one other thing, I also reflected to VPI, all their VPI tables I heard in the show, close to around 10 that were equipped with their 3D arm sounded bad. I meant they made music or should I just say they made sound but there were no soul to the music it played, just flat and boring. I would avoid their 3D arm for a while ... Of course VPI denial my claim since I am no body.  
 
Cheers!
