1. In Walter Mossberg's column in the Wall Street
Journal, a reader asks about a modern replacement for his VCR. He recommends a
TIVO; or computer based video recording. I checked and the TIVO is a subscription
device for at least $8 a month plus the cost of the unit. Also it only records
to hardrive, not removable media. A proper replacement: the Magnavox H2080MW8
for under $200.
2. For Sale: Five JBL LSR28P Linear Spatial
Reference biamplified studio monitors (www.JBLPro.com/pages/recording/lsr28p.htm;
$1200 srp each). Asking $325 ea plus shipping. If buying all five ($1625), three
OmniMount (www.OmniMount.com) wall brackets (each about $175 srp) included at
no extra charge, and total shipping cost is about $250 in CONUS. Funds transfer
or cash only; no checks. Fred Ampel (FAmpel@KC.RR.
