Greg W indeed - best prices on-line for the vinyls too.

Technically it's emigrating, but now that I think about it I feel like the EU is a big country, we use the same currency, have many laws in common, open borders: there are the language differences in many countries though.
Nah, we would kick some Norsemen a$$ if they tried, just like we did with the Romans, Napolean armies and the Spanish (although we were Spanish for 60 years) Tongue

. Well, for instance if you don't like the area you live in (e.g. women's armpits are not hairy enough), you can move to a radically different place without having to emigrate. Also, large countries are a lot harder to invade. Let's say a raiding party of Norsemen lands somewhere at Alert. They start marching South, but after a week or two they are only half way into Fripp-forsaken Nunavut .. no Molson, no moose burgers, no nothing. The Norsemen feel increasing tired, bored and frustrated, so they swallow their pride, go back to Alert, board their longships and sail to lovely Portugal instead.

As promised, pics of my setup. I appreciate others showing theirs in previous posts. I am super pleased with this system I have put together...always looking at new gear though since this is a hobby. I have all formats covered...analog tape, CD, digital files and vinyl.
My desk is about 6m away from speakers, when I am deep into work, I usually spin a 10.5" reel or use my Zune player and shuffle play about 2,500 songs. My sofa is about 3m from my speakers where I sit and do serious listening on vinyl. It is a comfortable setup in my lower level, nobody disturbs me and the volume is not an issue.
 
 
 
 
 
sweet setup - I like that clean look ...

How are you posting the pics to the site? The pics need to "live" on a server like photo bucket, flicker or the PA servers....If you delete the picture after posting it here, it will go away...
 
All my pics are on my photobucket account.
