It's in the news everywhere,
Getting ready for school.
While My son uses his audio tape recorder to record his engine sounds.
Also works with electric can openers,blenders,shavers,hair dryers and my favorite is Flushing the toilet.Makes me happy as a pig in ****.
Great in Dolby surround on a 500 watt amp.
Almost forgot,my wifes farts.Ripping good audio.
What a great hobby eh guys ?
