Re: eBay seller sent me the wrong mic....

I recently bought a MXL V63M for $30 on eBay. My intent was to use it for practicing my soldering of component upgrades. To my surprise, I discovered it was an already modded version, and not only that, a fantastic sounding mic! Wish I knew who did the mod because it's unbelievable how good this mic...

Anybody have the new ZULU Passive tape emulator?

Thought I'd start a thread over here re the new ZULU tape emulation box from Handsome Audio. I've tried all the tape emulators except the Anamod. ZULU actually sounds like tape. Much better than 542s I used to have. It's passive which is really cool. You can pair it with preamps or comps to compensa...

Jan 2015 and they're still here. I have fond memories of the old days when they sold stuff I thought was useful. Used to pour over the newest Radio Shack catalog. But I agree they need to go now. Currently populated by electronics morons. Now, when I go in for a 1/4 inch plug or a resister or someth...

I'm not on f-ing Facebook, and never will be. I personally HATE these kind of "Like us on Facebook" giveaways, and just generally hate Business Presence on Facebook in general. Why would anyone "Like" a commercial brand? So stupid. "Liking" anything on social media in general is just daft IMO. Bunc...

What's wrong with an amp? You already have one, why discard it for powered monitors. Like you, I recently replaced my Monitor 1s after using them for 15 years or so. Replaced them with Tannoy reveals (passive). These were a big improvement.
