The Seiko Sumo, the Seiko SUN019, the Black Monster, Benarus Megalodon . . . I've done a lot of re-buys in my time. Another that I'd like to get again is the Citizen Grand Touring shown close up here: Continue reading

I don't feel so haunted by the what if question that I'd spring 4-6K or even more on a watch. I'd rather suffer my first-world problem with my chin up.
I wonder how it would work as a radio replacement. In my house, though, I would only want to use it in my room, which I doubt would get blue tooth reception from the office.

Paul, I like it but I don't know if I need it. Can the Blue Tooth feature work from one opposite room in a house to another? What's the range?

That Griffin is a good price. But it says it has 20 watts, yet you're supposed to connect it to speakers. I'm confused on that point.

Ulysses, since I'm prone to buying proxies for other things and since the honeymoon phase will end, I'm skeptical about pulling the Omega trigger, which isn't to say I might not get one someday. We shall see. Phil, you sound as obsessive as I am.

Part of me likes your plan, but anothe part of me would want to handle in person or even "rent" a Planet Ocean before I made such a drastic move.
What Is Critical Thinking?

Without critical thinking, we are little more than mindless consumers, obedient children... Continue reading

Ken, analog radio is a long journey from one extreme on the dial to the other like traveling from the south of Mexico to northern tip of Alaska.
Brandon, I love that Grundig but I don't have $500 of love for it.
In the garage I have several unused radios, including the CCrane EP and the Grundig S350. I guess my wife can have her 106.7 radio and I can have my 89.3 radio.
I'd love such a set but with my luck the tuner and/or volume control would get scratchy and I don't have the tech skills to refurbish it to make it sound new.

Tim suggested I try De-Oxit spray on my CC-Radio 2E and it worked. Preset 2 works as good as new. Thanks, Tim. I can only hope the De-Oxit will continue to work if and when this problem resurfaces. Continue reading

We've got a pristine C.Crane EP in the garage. Here's a first-world problem. In the morning I listen to 89.3 FM and my wife turns to 106.7 KROQ. That's a big divide for an analog radio in the morning. Ah, first-world problems.
Exactly what I'm doing, Angelo. Keeping my fingers crossed that other presets don't follow suit.
Do those preset buttons just pop off and then you snap them back on again? I don't want to mangle the thing.
Tim, then perhaps the PL-880 will do since I want a radio to fill the kitchen with rich sound.
