Thread: Internet jukeboxes

  1. #21
    When driving I navigate with google maps on my iphone mounted on the dash. I play radio or CD's either classic rock or classic country. I also listen to conservative talk radio.

    Spotify or pandora are good for streaming music and podcasts, just use the aux cable. There’s a 50 mile or so stretch in the middle of the drive from Vegas to Reno where zero radio stations whatsoever come in. Don’t believe any cell service or sign of intelligent life either. Fuck that stretch sucks if not prepared. I think that’s where they dump people from Portland.

    Iíve done that drive. The first time it was interesting checking out the alien store, looking for bighorn sheep and seeing where the old brothels were. But I agree, itís a long drive of basically nothing. When counting the miles down to Tonopah to get a beer and some BBQ is exciting, you know itís bad. Never stopped at the hotel casino at the entrance to Death Valley, doesnít look like much.

    For music and talk I have Sirius/XM in all my vehicles and canít live without it. When traveling and renting cars, I only select cars that offer it when possible. But Iíve been to a few places like Wyoming, Montana and Alaska where Hertz doesnít offer it. Not sure if itís because of reception issues or lack of demand.

    Thought I’d post the schedule of a venue near me that often features artists and acts that you might remember and possible figured to be dead.

    https://www.rutheckerdhall.com/events

    A few upcoming include:

    Little Feat
    Alice Cooper
    Don McLean
    Gladys Knight
    Ringo Starr
    Rita Rudner

    Some have history as Vegas headliners at a different time.

    ^^ Hey Singer and Kewl check this out - this guy can't even afford a car with Bluetooth capability.
    Love my forum fam. You group of misfits are truly the finest people and I'm glad to be a part of this internet experience.

    Lol. When you put 30-40k a year on a vehicle, and you don’t give a shit about them beyond functionality, it doesn’t make much sense to spend that much on them if you’re going to depreciate them that quickly. I’d rather have two cheaper reliable cars than one for the same price anyway, one for when four wheel drive/off road capability matters and one for when fuel economy matters.

    Yah I have 3 cars in my frontyard alone which is clearly better than 1 fancy car with Bluetooth. I gotcha bro.

    Troll away my man. I’m not even saying it’s better. I’m saying it’s not something I’d want to spend my money on. You’re mocking me for the exact same thing what’s his name I can’t remember that used to talk about the option math bullshit used to mock your boy Mickey for.

    I know you're looking to criticize, but I'll answer this because audio has become a big part of my retirement life which has ties to some of my younger years when I had the ability to read about and buy but not the time to fully enjoy.

    I've had different system components over the years. My current set-up includes old school and the new stuff. A few items are brand new. The discussion about vinyl piqued my interest in responding. I'd say 97% of my record collection is in pristine condition.

    I use (and have found nothing better) 4 original Bose 901 Series I direct/reflecting speakers hung from the ceiling--2 straight ahead and one each to the left and right. All of course face the speakers to the 3 walls.

    These are very thirsty speakers, and I power them with dual Bose 1801 metered power amps, run thru a Bose 4401 pre-amp. My tuner is a Nad C-427.

    While Bose is the yesteryear heart of my system and while some of this has changed over the years, the pride of it is my Vertere MG-1 MKII turntable and it's Sumiko Starling & Vertere Mystic cartridges. I use the tonearm that came with the turntable. There's several different phono amps and other ancillary equipment.

    haha Mickey is my boy now! Anyway, it is a joke and I'm trying to do a Singer impression. My first new car is on order and it HAS bluetooth. My existing car doesn't either and is worth a small fraction of the new car. lol.


    This whole conversation made me question whether I want to sell my gas car just because it is dependable and cheap to drive. If I decided to tour the US, I feel I'd be better served with a gas car especially after figuring out the depreciation from high yearly mileage.

    So what do you say to all the audiophiles who say Bose is overpriced and fails to deliver quality sound?

    Google something like "Are bose speakers any good"

    Your Sirius subscription should allow your phone to be one of your devices, which you can bluetooth thru the rental's audio system.

    No criticism from me: only you know what "sounds good" to your ears.

    Audio is a big interest of mine and has been since I was a teen; over the years my gear just gets better and better, as does the sound, and that of course is what it is all about.

    I'd not heard of that turntable before; I too have kept my LP's and even my teeny bopper 45's and listen to them.

    My 'table is not quite as exotic as yours: it's a Rega Planar 2 with a Sumiko Blue Point cartridge.

    I have three high end stereo systems in our home (garage, listening room, bedroom) as well as a dedicated home theater.

    Most of my listening is either CD or FM radio.

    Mfr's of my equipment includes many well known players such as Krell, Conrad Johnson, Bryston, Aerial ... lots of great high end gear that is made in North America for the most part: I mention that because non-audiophiles probably don't realize how much really great high end gear is still made in the USA / Canada.

    Thanks Coach, I never knew that. Iím not as up on this stuff as I should be. Just saved me some money, appreciate it.

    Maybe keep both and take the insurance on/off the old when when you’re going on a long ass trip. Unless you’re able to leverage the insane used car prices that are likely to last through much of this year, if you can do that without also having to pay jacked up cost for the new one that’d be solid too.

    Insurance rate difference can be kind of a shocker when you go from a 5+ year old car to new or close to as well. Anyway, your money, whatever floats your boat. Chicks who wear makeup and shave their body hair don’t love the older used cars.

    If you knew anything about audio you'd know that what sounds perfect to some sounds imperfect to others. And when measured with instruments, sound differences typically are not detectable by the human ear.

    I grew up and went to school in Mass. Bose had a fabulous facility on The Mountain in Framingham. That's where I was schooled about audio. And Bose remains the best sound I have ever heard, esp. with the speaker set-up I have.

    My 45's remain but many are "scratchy". I put every one of my albums in plastic-lined protectors, so only a few have pops and crackles.

    I don't use my system for home video. My 3 main TV's are two 70" and one 75". Each has a high-end sound bar system. These are not nearly as "audiophile" as what's out there in home theaters. But they more than suffice for how we use them.

    Yea, pretty much this. Insurance is going up a lot but not to the extent I can't afford it. What good is a car chicks like when you're 60? Young women still sometimes give me a look. Interest rate is about to go up and who knows about inflation. Might as well get the car now. Also - if something weird happens to the oil supply then I'm in far better shape I feel.

    Insurance on/off is kinda interesting. I carry minimal insurance. I don't really think I'm collectable as Dan would say. Regardless insurance cost will start becoming signifcant expense. It might be worth turning it on/off. I need to figure out insurance before I pick it up in the next month. Given I'm well into my 40s I don't think buying your first new car is much of a brag ..

    I'm too lazy to fuck with my crypto... selling a car to make a thousand or 2 isn't really on the horizon. Just trying to keep my eyes on generating more cash. Want to make a more serious go at APing this year. Hmm wonder what I'd get for this car. Wow I'm seeing at what might realistically be an easy 7-80% markup. Crazy.

    Next time I am in Las Vegas I'll be looking for non-gambling adventures, and as I have "mined" most of them I need to come up with something new.

    With that in mind I searched the 'net for info on any high end audio stores in Las Vegas and found only ones for home theater.

    I find that hard to believe, i.e. that there are no good high end audio stores there: anybody know of any good ones in Sin City?

    Not talking Best Buy...
