  Tom,

  I've always been gullible, but then I'm the guy who trusts people  
until they they screw me, what do I know?

  When you're in the audiophile community,  you're not surprised by  
the new claims of  those  that praise the sound  a $4,000  power cord  
delivers. I wonder how many of those  big spenders wonder what they  
have in their walls - 14-2  Romex or what? You never know what crazy  
thoughts  will come down the pike. I remember the digital clock that  
was available from Radio Shack. Just plug it in to the same outlet as  
your pre and the sound bloomed!!!!! I forgot the name of the audio  
predator that came up with that idea,  but I bet he's  enjoying a  
cool drink on a beach in a tax free country thinking " There's one  
born every minute."

   Tom,  I just remembered, Machina Dynamica.

   regards, Ken  Happy Easter.
