I did that. I have one hooked up to my stereo rig ('90s Denon/Adcom/Harman-Kardon/Klipsch stuff) in our family room, and another hooked up to my recording rig in our garage. When I'm bumping around the house, and want to listen to current music, I appreciate the convenience of being able to stream from my phone at times when I don't care a lot about high fidelity.

My stereo rig is about to be replaced by '80s Yamaha receiver, JVC turntable, and bigger Klipsch speakers that were my step-dad's. The Yammy and JVC were top of the line in their day, and are in excellent condition. Very nice pieces. The speakers are the bigger brother of the ones I currently have. The smaller pair and the Adcom amp will get moved out to the garage and integrated into that system for general listening service.

I did buy the new one with the intent of it replacing an existing... but now that I think about it, it's sometimes useful to have two set up at the same time... :innocent:

I used to run a pin router similar to this except it had a duct to vacuum the fiberglass dust.

I refuse to call out hazards. That's what I hate about group rides. The cacaphony of calling out hazards, car back, hold your line, and on and on.

You forgot "gravel!" at every turn.

Ride on higher-traffic roads. Problem solved.

I gave my router to my brother, when I downsized power tool collection.

Receive audio from phones and such. Plus, send audio from the system components out to things like bluetooth speakers/headphones.

This keeps popping up: B03 Bluetooth Transmitter & Receiver | 1mii.shop

This is what I’m leaning toward.

Same. I wonder what's really going on with that.

Whole Olympics is messed up - Gu thing, Chinese speed skaters cheating, Rusky OC, Rusky figure skating, etc.

It wouldn't have bothered me so much even five years ago. But that's a country headed in the wrong direction. And the way NBC did those mini-bios about her (US/China/whatever), rubs me the wrong way, too.

I think she’s just a dumb kid who doesn’t k ow any better. She likely thinks she’s doing a great thing to inspire young girls where really she’s just endorsing a genocidal and regressive regime.

In some contexts (such as the old Cold War) I could see merit in a celebrity bridging the divide between two countries. "Look at that American, she's cool."

Frankly I don't know how regular Chinese people view America right now. Or if it matters to their government.

In hard mode any clues you’re given you have to use. So you can’t intentionally use a letter that’s been eliminated in a different word to try and work things out.
