    Love your Maggie 8802!! I've heard there are several in the Maggie lineup that are awesome. I'm on the lookout locally for one.

    I picked up a single Klipsch Heresy speaker a while back at an estate sale for $5. I wanted to find a mate for it, but was surprised by how much people will pay for a single Heresy. I ended up trading it for a Carver CT-24 tuner/preamp. It's not the most loved preamp, but it sounds pretty good and I've been having fun fiddling with the Sonic Hologram setting. For now, I prefer listening to my Kappas without the SH.



    I also met a cool guy (who I traded with) that lives a few blocks from me and has lots of neat gear. I'm planning to bring a six pack over to his house and ask to hear his Mcintosh 240 and Klipschorns.

    I love the sound of the Maggie. I'm planning to make a wooden base and set it up in my office in the Fall.

    Here's my first score from the Goodwill auction site:

    A Sony PS-X60

    It is in excellent condition. I just needed to clean some variable resistors inside and now it is running really well. I can't believe how much nice stuff is on there.

    Agreed...and for some reason your area seems to be in a hot zone for the GW online auction booty. Has been for a while. Either way, good score!
