Quadzilla – Nice setup… Simple and very practical. But what is that black thingy sitting in front? Can you play Angry Birds on it?? :lol:

The possibilities are endless. Me, I exclusively use headphones and utilize an external USB DAC with a dedicated amp.

When I retired, I gave up my cell phone and never looked back. I can't think of a situation that requires someone to be able to contact me at a moment's notice, day or night. "Leave a friggin' message and I will call back as soon as I feel like it ... beeeeeeep." And don't get me started about 'texting'. People really are slaves to instant gratification. :lol:

To be honest, I thought I would get more flack about the goofy retro tuner. You have to admit though, it has a VERY minimal footprint on the desktop.

If you can use one of those newfangled Internets, you can post photos in your damn classified ads. :roll:

I like it. But to go with that retro tuner you need to ditch the touch tone and really go old school!

I said "retro", not "prehistoric". :lol:
