  1. Vinyl - Record Spinning

    And I'll leave tonight with this - the XA, albeit with a bit more power, smokes the F3 from top to bottom. Far superior bottom end, better balance, smoother less grain on top. May be a keeper (but how many times have I said that) !

    Have an F3 sitting next to the XA25. I think NP might be on to something --?!?!
  3. Vinyl - Record Spinning

    His skills are such Yamaha has his signature drum kits, or did.
  4. Vinyl - Record Spinning

    Vinyl or not I've got a Chet Baker disc on, great closed mike recording. Damn may as well in the room, well he is ! Standing between the LaScallas and in front of Pass Labs Class A power. Im not sure the LS have ever sounded better. Even my wife was commenting on them today and she's heard mucho gear run through these parts ?!
  5. Vinyl - Record Spinning

    Thanks Range Heard of Earthworks, never heard any tunes Have an old John Klemmer and funny, just listened to it yesterday ! And now a couple you might check on - Manu Katche , Playground Manu Katche , Neighborhood Tomasz Stanko , Suspended Night All on ECM and Tremendous recordings. Katche is a phenominal drummer, Stanko the same on trumpet. Really these ECM recordings are some of the best I've heard, great dynamics and range. The Katche discs with volume can lift you out of your chair. Check em -

  8. Vinyl - Record Spinning

    Appreciate each and every suggestion. I heard a killer King C tune today on Internet radio and thought to ask. All others mentioned including Weather Report, I think I have three or four, I have been onto since the 70's/80's. I was into hifi since then and hung with a diverse group of "hip" music lover/musicians and heard a lot of cutting edge stuff in the day.

    Hard to argue - but Jaco ?
  10. Vinyl - Record Spinning

    Cobham - yes. Still have his first release, Spectrum. Man can play the skins. Corea - see below. Vinyl I can't play. Al D - yep, a couple CD's. Stan Clark - "" ""
  11. Vinyl - Record Spinning

    Funny how you mention my request in a vinyl thread and recommend RtF/Chick Corea etc. and yes I am familier and probably have three or four of those - On Vinyl! But alas arm/carts are gone from table and there is no going back for me. That is one hifi rabbit hole I refuse to enter. But thanks and will entertain all recommendations

    Hey Full Range i follow this thread from afar and note you enjoy King Crimson? Will you recommend a few of your favorites leaning to the jazz/fusion slant? And available on disc, no vinyl here. Thanks
  13. SOLD - La Scala pair SOLD

    We may well be heading your general direction sooner than Oct, but I've yet to devise a way to strapped two LS to the back of our bike. Even if I boot the wife from her perch, accommodations would be tight. Sorry --- . But if 'Bo is true with his build they should withstand a tumble or two, maybe three ---?!?!

  15. my cornscallas...so far

    Three of four Crites Cornscalas' are three way - only Style D is a two way. Maybe he prefers a three way design ?! And they do look nice -----
