Seriously, this is the OP's first ever post on CAM and it's to ignite a cable debate?

I value CAM. I don't value trolls.


Looked like humor to me.. I take your comment more troll like than his actually.

Mint, only used once....but 40% off the orignal $1300.00/foot retail. A $10...

without a monitored system, spending $500-1000 will only confirm your stuff is gone. Without camera's you get fewer clues when something does happen. Spend the money on prevention. I use clear polycarbnate sheet over my basement window glass, bar the back door so even a hydraulic spreader is less ef...

Estimating with a bathroom scale and the Canada Post website is reasonably good. You can easily add a bit to an estimate, but being too low is awkward to get back from a buyer. I so seldom see anyone offer to take it to a pack and ship store, as it is assumed it is too expensive. My experience is it...

" Vintage " for anything less than 35 years old. Feel free to adjust my time frame. It might be a bit harsh. What IS the benchmark for vintage ? IMO, from 1955-1980. The early '80's did spring forth new ways of building audio technlogy wise. The beginning of the end of wood cases. Silver ...

Well since this thread is in revival mode, and its been open a long time I'll contribute..
'Sub' as in 'under' drives me....
Its too often used with the negative connotation...beneath my standard.

Your Sub $2000 trinket xyz isn't as good as my $5000 trinket.

I have one by Hubbell. Main recept is energized, when it sees demand, like a preamp, it triggers 4 more receptacles. About 10 second delay on and off. It takes a minimal amount, but I have found some pre amp are not enough of a draw to trigger it. Adding the analog tuner to the preamp is enough. I d...

After reading this and the other thread, thought I would mention I had a reply to an ad, but cannot reply back. It was from a gmail account, and after trying both while logged into CAM online and directly, gmail said the address was unknown. I wrote it off as spam, but now I wonder. It was logged as...
