I read Stereophile magazine for a number of years, till I got my system put together - AR EB101 turntable, Conrad Johnson PV7 Preamp, Aragon 2004 power amp, Magneplanar 2.5R speakers.

Then I let the subsciption lapse, and got married. That system, with a variety of CD players, has been going strong for 34 years now. I remember when I bought it because it was the year I got married. I guess I'm lucky to have bought the system FIRST, eh?

Yeah, I bought some new speakers a couple years ago, and I still get grief about them.

When I was a yute I could tell I was listening to a CD by critically listening to the cymbals. They'd sound too crunchy on CD.

Now that I'm old and half deaf and it's 6 of one, half dozen of the other.

Cymbals were always what I listened to in choosing speakers. Never cared for a bass predominant sound. Liked balance with nicely rendered cymbals.

The rjones28 high fidelity equipment was purchased after the wedding. It was a joint enterprise. It's still going strong.

Velo Vol is uncharacteristically quiet during the vinyl discussion. I think he needs to hear a song that's in his wheelhouse.


MoAlpha 01-25-22 08:07 PM

I have mediocre audio equipment. Too many other things to spend money on, but I appreciate the good stuff.

Somehow I missed Weird Al's cover: (a couple great cameos in this one.)

I bet he secretly listens to nothing but stoner rock. Surely this track is shaking his neighbor's windows right now.

OMG, trying to set a record for most guesses with 3 letters locked in! One of them was a word I didn't know - simar, as defined in the 1913 Webster's Dictionary, is "a woman's long dress or robe; also light covering; a scarf." The word is derived from Frenchsimarre, and is also written as cimar, cymar, samare, and simare.

I have a cheap little blue tooth speaker and my phone.
And I don't listen to much music anymore.

Nope. Listening to, and playing live music.

What a night. We had eight new people show up. The old Knoxville Community Band is back! :bday:

Fun Fact: Knoxville Community Band concert recordings are distributed on the proper music medium.

my ' spirits are a couple years old. I shake the chain in that jar for a minute then use a citrus based cleaner from zep called Orange Clean, rinse , dry, then dip.

8 degrees this morning, going to be 5 at 9:00 am. Super fun times!

Had to run new windshield solvent squirter lines in the Firebird yesterday. Due to the hard plastic factory line becoming so brittle any stress at all on it caused it to snap.
Got a weird message from ebay yesterday about the tunning service I sent my ecm (from the Avalanche) to for the AFM delete. So, I had to track him down and give him a call. Turns out his "guy" for ecm work has covid and there will be a delay. It just goes on, and on, and on.......

I still have a CD tower in my living room. The rest are kept in a wooden wine crate or in my car.

It’s a cool 17F out. Time to bundle up and ride.
