Default Kingston Datraveler HyperX2 USB Flash drives

Hi audio friends!
..... and all the others

Wasnt exactly today,
but some weeks ago.
They are HYPERX2 Kingston, 16GB & 8GB USB pen drives.
5-10 times faster than 'normal lowprice' USB:s


I have order components to a new PC I am building.
To give my brother, to his boys, for something called LAN-party
Be back when I get those PC gears
and show you how to make a uptodate superPC (not INTEL but AMD)

To all my friends
but not to those others
My sincer regards
/Line 'linie' Lineup

So far so good. Those 760i's have withstood a good shakedown. In fact I hooked up the 762i's (8" 2 way), listened to them for about an hour and put the small ones back on. The bigger boxes sounded like they were trying too hard to be main speakers. A wee boxy and bloated. Nothing like what you get from a nice 15" PA driver in an Altec A7 box.

Oops, wrong thread.

Little speakers are leading the big ones 1-0 at the end of the first quarter.

Afaics the equalizer slopes differ, the output of the 17 is higher (14 vs 6 volts rms),
IM and THD are better and the riaa curve is flatter. They should have called it 11MkII.

Fleamarket shopping today No paper involved only small coins.

Another CD471 Yes! In a few years all remaining ones are mine mine mine...

Sony TA-F100 piece of plastic with a tdk somewhatortheother chip amp.

Philips IR wireless headphone.

JBL center and satellite speakers (after removing the grille I found out what
a heap of junk this is) can't imagine people buying this stuff new. But I still
have a neat sony 4" sub speaker which will replace the jbl joke and with
some padding and a brace it will be daughters karaoke set together with
the sony amp.

Cambridge soundworks digital 2.1 sub/amp with satellites. Fun little computer
speakers and it even has digital in.

Today i got EPI 100 (1983 version/$0), and an 8" non-powered sub ($5). A while back i got an ARX Turntable ($0 but i was responsible for scraping off the foam mat -- it had turned to jelly)

I'm trying not to buy anything, sometimes it is hard.

I also scored 16 CDs for $20.

Looks like it is from the era when lux wasn't doing themselves any favours, but seems in good condition and should do the job assigned

I do a lot of radio listening when I'm up-to-no-good around here so a properly functioning unit was in order.

I have a very nice, excellent condition T-88V -

about a month ago. Cost a bit more than the T-210.


Oh, I also bought parts to upgrade this computer - power supply, motherboard, ram, CPU and another hard drive (that will make 5 in this case, total nearly 2 TB) from Newegg.
$550.00
