That is a good start.

There is no cure for OCCD. Once you have it you will always be looking for and buying Carver equipment.
Some cool Carver stuff!

I have a fix for OCCD. get a bottle of tequila and drink it (all) then you can't type a lick on your keyboard and you won't buy a thing, plus you have a great time. just make sure your wife's sister isn't in your home.

I don't think so, different parts of the house require sound too along with a dedicated theater. :D At first I tried to combine my stereo with the theater to save money, room etc but it's sooo much better for both worlds to just split them up. \:D/ \:D/

Where is the brake petal on this OCCD train!!!
I'm sorry to inform you that the breaking system had been rewired to the accelerator! If you hit the brakes, you will only collect more gear faster!! :lol: :lol:
