    I always buy Shelta umbrellas because I know the minute I spend decent money on one it will get left behind somewhere.

    Longines Silver Arrow is a nice classic watch. You can pick one up for about $1,500.

    ah audio is one hobby that you can actually share with others. And enjoy forever.

    Don't get sucked into tube amps though as other than quaint and interesting. Spend all the big dollars on speakers/drivers, a basic clean digital amp with no added sound and bit of headroom. A $100 DVD player wont sound any worse than a $2,000 CD oversampler - despite the hype. Most people don't pay enough attention to speaker setup and placement and room acoustics. You can get immense improvement on most peoples system with a few hours fiddling around with speaker placement, listening spot and room treatment. All for basically no cost. But then you knew that didn't you. Or at least you knew I'd say that.

    Cans and muffs feel better on the ear.

    Has anyone notice that a lot of affiliates sellers of accessories on SF have moved onto suits? While that's good and all, from the pictures they all seem to share a same sort of problem: the cut all seem a little off to me as the jackets all seem to lack shape. The slim cuts they all seem to favour appear to be with just narrow measurements and not with proper suppression that would follow the contour of the torso.

    Actually I do the full infection control soap up and rinse off downwards and shake. Hands I mean.

    If I'm washing up the wrist I take off my watch - thats why they have a catch or buckle.

    Thank you and curse you. Beautiful watch.

    Have always wanted a Panerai but the best I will probably get will be something from these guys!

    Sounds very Skyhooks 70's Carlton retro, or is it just after Boz Scaggs played Melbourne Uni?

    Yes so I imagined. I assume American Tailors is a good bet for finding some?


    I don't know how many points you'll score with the more conservative guys here but I really like this.

    I recently got a moderately priced (integrated) amp that has a optional tube pre-amp stage built int - the idea being that you may want to use it to improve the sound of some of the more compressed digital audio format if you use those sources.

    Thought this was a great idea, but in practice I don't listen to much other than CD or vinyl, and the amp is already pretty forgiving so i don't use the tube pre much - especially with vinyl, it kills a bit of detail and verythign sounds a bit to lush.

    I agree with your approach - the RRP of my speakers is about 4x that of my amp.

    My current turntable cost my $5 at a school fete - v happy with that...
