A contest of sorts.
09/16/12 at 18:17:46
 
I am willing to bring my dead ZDAC-1 to Zen Fest this year and give it to someone for free.
I figure that someone can get it fixed for a few bucks and it would be a nice addition to their system.
This is something I paid $875 for a year and a half ago.
It currently doesn't work and I won't guarantee that it will work for you, but....
OK now the contest part. Give me a reason why I should give it to you. The best reason wins. Remember that I am a bit more than a little sarcastic and I like a good story.
No, I will not ship it to you, You will need to be in E. Peoria on the Saturday of Zen Fest.
So there you go, entertain me.

You can give it to me. I will be there.  I am challenged when it comes to computer audio.

I'm still waiting for a good story.
opnly_bafld is currently leading the race, he must know that I work for Cat.
Someone just needs to give me a story so full of BS that I will laugh to myself.
Free stuff here, it is still in the box it came in, hell it might even work, I haven't plugged it in for months.

Donnie,

I want it,  I need it, like a hole in my head. If I got it fixed and it worked, I would give it away...

Besides that, I had a colonoscopy today and the doctor said I had no BS...

My husband told me that you are giving away a DAC to the person with the most deserving story.  Well, I know that I'm the one!

You have to give it to me.  Because, I always wanted one of these.  I not only want one, I NEED one.  I walk miles and miles around my yard taking care of my garden.

I hope it's not one of those electric ones because I would just get all tangled up in the cord.  So, it has to run on gasoline.

I am hoping for a blue one, but I suppose any color would be ok, it is free after all.

Does it come with a trailer?  Dan and I are driving one car down to Decfest so I guess we don't need a trailer.  He could drive our car and I could drive the DAC.  HOLY MOLY, if it is electric, I will need a long cord (about 450 miles) because we live in Minnesota.  Boy, oh boy, I hope it's not electric, a 450 mile extension cord might make a free DAC cost prohibitive.  

It has to be able to drive over the bridge, see photo.  



So, you see, there is a lot of ground to cover.  We have a very big yard.  Note how narrow the bridge is, I hope it is the narrow version of the Deluxe All-terrain Car (DAC).  

I hope I win.  

Thanks,
Deb!

I'm pretty sure that we have a new leader in this contest.
Deb, that is a wonderful story.
Yes, the DAC is electric, sorry, I'm keeping my gas one for now. I'll look around and see how many extention cords I can come up with.
Sorry it is kind of a brown color. I could drop by the Buck store and see if the paint huffers have left any cans of blue spray bomb, if so the color can be adjusted.
My brother has a 22' enclosed trailer, I might be able to swipe it for the weekend if needed. He might need to be distracted when I take it, maybe I could shoot him in the knee. I'm pretty sure that he has medical insurance.
As far as the width goes, I know where there is a 250 ton press, we can squeeze it down to whatever width you need.
That is one nice garden you have there. I have a garden that looks a lot like that. Except mine has a rusted Chevy Vega in it.

DAC what?  Like, what's not to know?

No clue what is was.

Checked it out.  No longer made.  Why?  No parts.  Why? Japanese earthquake.  Why?  Someone hates DACs....  Can't messs wid dat.

Scene 2:

Me: Hey, dear, would you mind if I go to Peoria, IL for a couple of days?
Wife: I thought you didn't care about stereo anymore?
Me: I don't.  Not really.  This is for Max.
Wife: Max isn't going to want to go!
Me: No, you don't understand.  Max needs a DAC so he can stop listening all day to Mozart and Bach through 1" speakers of your laptop and, well...
Wife: What?!
Me: Well, if I go to Peoria for Decfest, I get a freeeee DAC for Max.  Now, it doesn't work just yet and it may be unrepairable with no parts because of an earthquake that happened in Japan and messed with the factory.
Wife: You better go.
Me: Are you sure?
Wife: Yup. This is my best chance to make a total fool of you in years.
Me: I'm gettin' it fixed or I'm not coming back!
Wife:  Is that a promise?
Me: One Tokyo detour to inspect earthquake damage, save a few lives rummaging for parts in a compost pile and I'll be back.  You'll never make a fool out of me!@

8-)

OK, now it is turning into a contest!
I'm going to plug the DAC in today, for some reason I think it will work.
Just think if it does work, a $875 DAC for FREE! If not, well I bet Steve can fix it. He has all kinds of tools.
The main thing to remember is that I am stone serious, I'm giving this sucker away to who entertains me the most.
