Damn, that's a BIG watch.  :)

Unfortunately I didn't buy anything that was not a music plugin or synth.

Yes since it is a smart watch it have to be little bit bigger but it is not too big imo, it is like a mini computer,  it can do a lot of things your smartphone can do, I will use it mostly to read notifications  Anyway I got it for like 50% off so if I do not like it or get tired of it I can sell it with out loosing much of the money.

looks ok on the hand I think the apple watch looks worse

Yep, yours looks like a watch. The Apple things looks like a kids toy on your wrist.

They look warm and nice :)

I wish black friday was more limited time, there is for instance a lot of stores who have black friday all week and weekend.
if they did have it only on one day friday they could have more extreme discounts would be more fun.

Yes these boots are made for my save walking, and they hold really warm.
We have colder days now and we yearn for an ice-cold and snowy winter.     :)

Take care.

Bought this to consolidate my somewhat convoluted front end rig.....then cancelled the order before it shipped.  This would have been more of a lateral move in sound quality.  The pre amps are better than my Metric Halo uln2's but my Lavry converters (I don't use the MH uln2 converters) are perhaps a bit better then the Prism's.  At this level its just swings and roundabouts...their both a lot of quality fun. Decided to stay where Im at.  Came close though.

Overkiller???

From Prism website...."An Over-Killer is a soft-clipping limiter to let you get more level on your digital copy by limiting the level of a balanced analogue signal to +18dBu. The OVER-KILLER, with its unique super soft clip circuit, stays soft even when large overloads are present and does not become hard like less sophisticated systems.

I think I would of left it off anyway.

I bought the mighty Native Instrument's Replika XT delay:

Along with Valhalla's Ubermod, this should cover my delay cravings. The diffusion mode is instant 'Budd-orama'  :)

On a footwear note, I bought some sheepskin slippers too. Yes, I have reached a 'certain age'...

Yep, that Replika-XT delay looks like a worthy improvement to the original. I was tempted, but went for the D16 Group Sigmund instead.
Ubermod is a real chameleon. Terrific plugin.

I basically did the same. No shopping for me.
