    It isn't quite upgraditis, since I'm not actually replacing components... just adding more and more. I'm not sure just what to call it.

    I bought my 8th Rotel amplifier today. I only need a few more now for the subs. [​IMG]

    I'm sick. Please help... donations can be sent to.. [​IMG]

    If you can afford to both eat and maintain your hobby then it's not a disease, just a compulsion. I can't send you a donation because I have a few compulsions too (home theater gear, girlfriend, new ride, etc) but if bragging about all of that new equipment would make you feel better then I'm all eyes [​IMG]

    Yeah and my oldest is getting a fair share of it for his impending plunge into matrimony.

    It is my theory that a big huge mortgage is the cure for this disease. I'm going to experiment myself with this very soon.

    Just use a currency converter and you can thank me for my 'generosity' later [​IMG]
    Could always move to Kentucky and get one hell of a deal on a home! Could be worse Phil...Carter could come back and bring the high interest rates again.

    I know what you mean....sigh... Non stop acutis upgradatis here too...

    But I'm lucky, at 30, my house car and business are all paid for... so the salary now goes completely to luxury!

    Philip, they're starting the foundation now... so I'm trying to satisfy my buying urges before the payments get too horrific. [​IMG]

    Chu, how nice of you. That should cover a power cord or two (from Wallmart!). [​IMG]

    kevitra, just one room... fortunately or unfortunately, take your pick. Does 24 channels in one room mean my disease is inoperable and terminal, or do I just need immediate surgery!?! [​IMG]

    I just checked with Yahoo Currency Converter thing, and it's worth about 14US$... So in that country, everyone's a millionaire!

    While Equipement-wise I'm not doing so bad, I have rather modest equipment, but I would really like a WS TV, a DVD-A Capable DVD Player and a SVS but can't afford them for now (In the case of the SVS, can't afford to get evicted!!!)

    People think I need help in the DVD Department though, even though I only have 145 DVDs in my collection.

    RichardHOS,

    Try AA (Amplifiers Anonymous)...though I suspect that after you get your coin you'll spend it on interconnects.

    I am a compulsivicated person myself...


    And I have a problem..... I need $900.00 to buy the raw
    drivers for my line array project and probably $200.00 for
    the crossover parts and at least $200.00 for the enclosure
    building materials.. So I am socking away money for this
    right now.. And what do I come across today?

    Audio Advisor has Aragon products HALF OFF... They have the
    new Aragon 8008 for $1500.00 and a pair of Paladium1K's for
    $2900.00

    THIS SUCKS! I want these things, and I have been planning on
    buying them, NEXT YEAR.... And here they are half off.....

    *Grumbles* can someone loan me 3K 0% interest? Better yet
    if you're well ta do, just give it to me and I promise I
    will appreciate it forever... Or I could sign my soul over
    to you.... Buy you can only have it when I am dead okay?

    I'll help you "get rid" of your disease. Just send me one of your Rotel amps. [​IMG]
