Had the same exact setup on my '99 and liked it enough to get it again on this one in Jan of 2005... I remember I added everything up including sales tax and it came to $135. Not too bad at all pricewise and I wouldn't have it any other way!
Stay tuned for a Rangobus sound clip within the next 3 or 4 weeks. ;)
Sounds real good Brad. Your camcorder takes great video and sound quality!
Sounds nothing like your beast, but it will do. lol
As for the camcorder (graduation present to myself ), the damn thing was sitting in our bedroom for about 7 weeks before I finally had a chance to break it out, charge the battery, become acquainted, etc. Now I can see that it will be going just about everywhere I do. It's just a little $379 Sony mini-dvd with a 40x carl zeiss lens, but seems to do the trick!
