    That's a ton of equipment, Jim! Nice! And what a great idea in using an old sewing machine base as a turntable stand

    Thanks! So I bought an Ohio State tshirt down there. About a year later, walking through an airport, might have been Denver or Detroit, an older gentleman about my age yells "O. H." I didn't know what to say. He then explained that I'm supposed to yell "I. O." Lesson learned. Go buckeyes!

    Actually, most of the crew around here refers to "setup" or "gear"..."rig" is sort of a hangover from ham radio where many of us refer to our "gear" as "rigs". Either way...have fun!

    Could be a navy-type using that term. I tend to go with gear.

    Hello from Ontario Canada! This place is the best to feed our need to learn about, and appreciate the many audio devices out there! Many smart people here to ask about your interests, so do not be shy, and make sure to learn as much as you can. A place like this further appreciates my need and desire to know about my gear and attain a sense of meaning with others :)

    I've been to Rimouski several times. The country is beautiful and so are the people. I've heard the terms "rig" and "kit" used many times referring to someone's audio system. I perused the snakeoilaudio website some time ago and saw the terms commonly used there. The posters seemed to be mostly European. The site is very irreverent and tongue-in-cheek, but once you get past the initial shock, the guys are OK and very knowledgeable.
