I became a fan of Worlds Best Cables, after doing much research, when helping out a Buddy get his system to stop blowing up his expensive Audio Research REF600 Monoblock Amplifiers (See Need a little advice on some AR Mono Block Amplifiers...and Speaker wires )

I got him to dump the CV Terminator Twin MH-770 Speaker Cables as aged (and leaky Voodoo), and I used a 3 Worlds Best Cables Directional Quad High-Definition Audio Interconnect Cable Pairs – Using Mogami 2534 Wire and Eminence Gold Locking RCA Connectors to replace all the MIT Interconnect Cables. He's had no issues since the swap was completed. If you are looking for very good interconnects, these are on the top of my list.
I use Mongami 2964 with the gold rca’s I’d have to look up which kind but there not the locking type although I do have some installed but I really like the Amphenol Gold rcas . I do remember reading the post about your friends trouble with the amps and cables good to hear of the good outcome .

Nice! I upgraded my TaylorMade M series driver and fairways to Sim2 Max last year. Happy but I did keep my M3 hybrids. So, what did the Ping replace?

A TM Sim 2 Max, 10.5 Fujikura Ventus Blue 5 Graphite reg shaft. The driver is about the worst club in my bag, Always has been. My iron TM P790's 5-9 ( were fit for me) are a dream to hit, easily works with my natural draw. I've been hitting my sm2 3 wood, but miss a little distance at times. So might as well try something else. The Ping, first time I used it ( playing partner had one) off the tee found the short grass. So I put my TM in the truck and after the round I bought it from him at the end of the day. He bought a Ping G430 and the old guy could really hit it. OF course we both are old over 70, and both get somewhere around 200 and with a good roll makes for a better day.

Got my brakes done, was $3600! The rings cost $700 each, pads around $400, + labor. While he was doing it, he said the front 2 tires are close to showing chord and one of the rears had a nail. He offered me a set of tires and rims he had from a photoshoot. I think this is the actual set and they look the same on my car lol, just that my car is blue and I have the AP brakes. 18x9

The deal on the rims was too good. $800 off, so basically I got the tires that have 5 miles on them and TPMS installed free.

Brembos come standard on this car, but I have AP Racing 6 pot front 4 pot rear (Brembos were 4 front 2 rear) w/2 piece AP rotors front and rear. Looks like he as a used set for sale still:

So far the TM Sims work for me. I got the D version which helps a lot with my slice. Anyway, I am almost 70 and am lucky to get 180 to 190 out of my drives. :(

I'm just lucky, stayed in the game since my high school golf team days in 1969.

Continue to buy used CDs that have music I can’t get on Qobuz. The latest is the Legacy edition of Santana which includes their Woodstock performance. Sounds awesome. Love the combination of guitar, keyboards and rhythm. The cover artwork is trippy too.

Record Store Day today, I bought six RSD releases and two others. The two on the left aren't RSD, but I wanted them.

Played all 8 today.
