That is a TON of Storage!
after raid6, 28TB raw escaped the coop so say, but still nearly 80TB usable isn't too shabby. My goal is to consolidate all of my VMs and containers to a single box and so far it's working pretty well.
Already have replaced my iVideon NVR with QNAP's QVR Pro - pretty decent system, not ideal, but better than its predecessor. Moved Both HomeAssistant (a smart home hub with USB Zigbee/Z-Wave adapter pass-thru) and UniFi (wifi controller) both as containers running qnap. I finished the initial file copy (the big one).
Only a few services remain to be moved over, just a matter of time before I get to decommission what was eating nearly $70 of electricity in my monthly electric bills.

Decided to go to the Thrift store after being shafted at the car repair shop today. Picked these up tonight they are mostly concerts. Made my mood a bit better. I had like four of these before, so great to get them again. Cars 2 is the 3D version, which I've never seen. I also heard the Greatest Showman has great SQ/PQ. Lucky.

A couple of weekends ago, I snared some lovely 1975 Klipsch La Scalas. I had to drive a few hours for them. I knew the crossovers were upgraded. What I did not know was that all drivers were also upgraded! The midrange driver is what the Klipsch forums recommend

. It has the correct Crites crossover. The sensitivity of these babies is beyond what I was expecting or hoping for. Just incredible.

There is an outfit called Crites Speakers near Hope Arkansas, which is the home of Klipsch Speakers. They are not affiliated with them, but they sell new drivers, etc for the Heritage line. They also make crossovers. My upgraded components came from them, except for the midrange horn driver, which I think is from a Texas outfit. They guy I bought them from owned them for a year or so and he was not aware of all that the previous owner did. His wife made him sell them because they were too big. Ha!

Look! Thrifted $5.99.
Like the fact that it included a headphone jack on this Pioneer, which my previous decks didn't have. Really dusty inside and out. Gave a her a cool cleaning and she looks like new. Belts inside look great.

I had that deck and matching 6 CD changer and receiver with all remotes. Bought it for my daughter but she decided not to use it. Sold it to some guy including a Pioneer turntable. He was really appreciative that he got a complete matching system for under $100.

No HDMI on my old laptop so this was a $20 experiment to connect my laptop to my AVR via VGA video and USB audio with a 3 metre HDMI cable. Works great. No sync issues and it even scales the 1600x900 image to 1080. Hope to find some time to start playing with REW and make my first measurements. I can also access the subwoofer candy materiel more easily now. Of course that's Band-maid on screen. :)

It has great playback after adjustments on sound. Insides were clean. The inside of the cassette area had major dust. After using a blower and some alcohol on the heads I'm so happy with it, especially at the price. I have (4) 2 head decks now. :eek: Which Pioneer TT did you sell? He got a good deal.

I bought this album off of Discogs. It came across the bond from England. Elli de Mon is the artist and the album is called Songs Of Mercy and Desire. Her sound is much like the early Black Keys.

Cool little Vinyl Haul earlier today.
These are the highlights discolored so you can see the real colors when I post em later on the vinyl thread. Stunned to see these all in almost Mint. Jazz, R&B, Folk and Rock.

That sounds cool. FYI if it's ever a thought for you, they do make a lot of conversion cables that work well in my experience. I have a DVI to HDMI and I'm pretty sure another going the opposite way. I think I have a cable to convert almost anything to anything so I've learned a bit.
No HDMI on my old laptop so this was a $20 experiment to connect my laptop to my AVR via VGA video and USB audio with a 3 metre HDMI cable. Works great.
