    No, I'm not asking for myself. I'm quite satisfied with my Yorx receiver and 8-track tapes. Now before you start saying this is a piece of junk, I'll just tell you I replaced the caps with audiophile grade stuff and the RCA's are now Cardas. It's been modded folks so eat me!

    However!!! This is a question that comes up frequently. Wouldn't it be nice to have an answer? Something that you could rely upon? I think so.

    Yes, you can now ask Bob (no not HTF's Bob!) a question and he'll give you an answer. It should help you arrive at an informed decision.

    For example I asked it the following questions:
    Q. Is the Pioneer a capable receiver?
    A. It is certain.

    Q. Will Britney Spears do unmentionable things to me?
    A. Cannot predict now.

    Q. What about Anglina Jolie?
    A. My sources say no.

    Q. Are digital receivers any good?
    A. It is decidedly so.

    So there you have it folks. Easy answers to tough questions.

    Chu- 8 track is just in its infancy don't be an early adopter and get burned. Reel-to-reel is here to stay. I can PM you a great tweak involving chickens, barb wire, a brick, and some duct tape.

    Yorx? Genuine Yorx. I got burned by not counting the x's. I bought a Yorxx and it was of course DOA. I have since found out that Yorxx is mfg'd by some secular monks in undergound Tibet. No address no telephone no e-mail. This is a warning to all, count the effen x's.

    I asked him the meaning of life and he said "It is decidedly so!"... I am starting to believe his powers.

    I especially like the "THUMP" my 8-track player gives me when it changes tracks mid-song!! Really makes the music come alive!
