Yesterday that is my plan. Unfortunately I decided Fraim was overkill at this point so it won’t be completely reference Naim.
Yes Poker debts! I taught my kids, nieces, and nephews how to play poker and various games of chance. We always played with real money (that I gave them without strings requiring they play the games.) They’d often run up huge wins but always ended up in debt. Hopefully it’s a valuable life lesson. At the very least they understand the math of poker and how it is winnable vs every other casino card game. Every now and then I “call in” a bit of the debt when I some help around the house. Many people thought it was inappropriate to teach eight year olds how to gamble but risk assessment is an important skill. As a former professional poker player, I kinda hoped one of them would get seriously interested in the game but they eventually concluded that gambling isn’t a great idea.
OMG! It’s like the ‘best jokes’ thread of yesterday evening, if you weren’t there you’ve missed a douzy!
Did you win any big events?
In that comparison, there are 3 factors that could unequally favour the Humboldt:
- Would a NAP500 be the fair point of comparison (rather than the 300)?
- As you suggest, if the Humboldt is on a much better rack than the Naim amps, this favours the Humboldt.
- The cable dressing needs to be spot on to make the Naim system sing.
So for the comparison to make sense, you’d have to imagine that you had a NAP500 and Fraim singing in harmony.
I don’t know man, you said 122 lbs. I just googled the conversion and got 55kg.
So apparently it’s not exactly the half as I believed. Thanks. I learned something today.
My biggest cash was under $100k so nothing major. I really liked online poker and the shift to playing live killed it for me. I won a few live <$500 buy in tournaments and made final table in some higher stakes but I had young kids at the time and didn’t want to be away from them so I didn’t play much. I love the game but dislike Vegas and casinos in general.
Worst hand of my life in NLH I had A2 spades heads up with a flop of 345 all spades. I flopped a straight flush. another 5 came on the turn. Long story short all the money went in thinking this guy has 55, 33, or 44. Of course he shows 67 spades.
Both ends of a straight flush.
That’s a rare pairing.
Using factor of 2 is good enough for very rough comparison.
I’m a bit lost to be honest with what’s going here, but it sounds like it will be awesome fun, so why not - congratulations!
Poker, the metric system, questionable rudeness, moral lessons for children and either a 55kg or 61kg amplifier…this forum has it all
We’ve got Christmas and a medley of relatives to add to the mix before we even hear any music as well
Sounds like it’s a great amp, hope it all works out for you fella.
Keep enjoying that rossini and let me know how it all goes
I hope it lives up to the hype. Going to be a long 10 weeks…
For SNL fans
You are probably still waiting your Audionet Humboldt. There’s a recent review in Enjoy the music point com site.
