Unboxing P20/A20

Unread post by Lotus Seven S » Mon Dec 04, 2017 11:16 am

One of the joys of Hifi is the unboxing....

Tradition requires:
  • A sleepless night
  • White Gloves
  • Stanley Knife
  • A Box
At the moment I've got the gloves, I've got the knife - but no bloody box.

And the postal van has just whizzed past me - without even a nod or a wink. The horse did look tired though.

So tracking be damned.

Maybe tomorrow.

Ah!!!

If they are following tradition and routine, then in about an hour I'll have it.

And thanks to Fretless for the support - a man who understands the virtue of impatience.

Thanks alfafan. And I am sure you are right.

But....just now, I'm waiting - and that seems to capture everything else.

:guiness; ARRIVED! :guiness;

Have to find my knife and gloves again....

I am rather reminded of an old cartoon about a man and his dog. The dog is depressed.

"I can't keep on living like this, " he says. "I am so depressed. I want to end it all".

The Man says, "Here's your ball, Fido".

The dog runs after the ball.

"Oh my god. Oh my god. A ball. This is the best day of my life."

Moving slowly forward....

It is cold out, so I am letting the boxes slowly warm up to room temperature before I turn them on.

But I must say I am impressed by what was in-the-box. (Open the box/Open the box).

Well packed. Lovely cables with nice terminals. The pre-amp was smaller than I imagined and the amp was bigger and heavier, than I imagined. And all very nice and lovely.

Things are connected up, so now I am going to go a long walk with the dog in the bright sunshine and cold air.....

And then - Serious Business.

No.... I am probably being dense - but I don't get the reference..... Maybe it can't be explained?
