    I’m in the process of having numerous eye operations so my font on my iPad is supersized and the typewriter takes up half the screen. On my iPad I go to “settings” and then “Display and Brightness” and go down to “Text Size” and drag the bar to your desired size. Depending on the type of iPad though this may vary - it does on my wife's ...
    Thank you, Joe.

    Ha!! I try not to make things too easy for people, LOL. You know, the weird thing is the pics on my iPad are oriented just fine. It's only on my PC that the pics are disoriented. Strange!

    Thanks for the kind words, Sean. It's been so long since I had any kind of high end audio (late '70s). I've really missed it.

    This is such a sweet sounding system. I had totally forgotten how good a truly good system sounds. Truth be told, I'd probably been just as satisfied with any number of systems. But this is the one I picked for me. Good job, "Me". Ha, ha!

    Tom, I’m glad to hear your new gear is bringing joy to your home already.

    How true; I often think how there’s always a variety of system configurations that will more than get us where we need or want to be. But that shouldn’t necessarily take away from the process and joy of making it our own.

    Re: Incoming!

    Ya know, after having a chance to check it out for myself, IMHO, the heat issue with Pass and similarly designed (class A/AB SS amps) and constructed amps is waaaaaayyyyyyyy overstated. Maybe it's because I'm from Iowa, I don't know? Perhaps if I lived in Phoenix in the summer or maybe Needles or Death Valley or Tampa?? But when I lay my hand on the heat sinks of my INT 250 it reminds me of a warm summer day. I placed a room thermometer on the heat sink of my INT 250 and it registered 94 degrees. That's a nice day where there is low humidity. Maybe not so nice in Iowa with the humidity but we're not talking about humidity anyway. The operating temps of most well built class A/AB amps is certainly not a deal breaker to me. But, different strokes... Most tube amps put out far more heat. My tube guitar amps got hot. Not just warm. Hot! You couldn't even begin to place your hand on the tubes of most tube amps, especially when they're really cooking.

    Anyway, I just thought I might set some things straight about the INT 250 and it's operating temp. I don't live in a state where summer temps often go north of 100 degrees. Iowa temps can certainly go above 100 degrees. But just perhaps a couple times each summer. Maybe if it did I'd feel differently. But I really doubt it. The operating temp of a Pass INT 250 for me is so low as to be irrelevant. It's just not a factor. But, like I said above...different strokes... My 2 cents.
