  1. I have one of Josh’s Lenco rebuilds in my system. It is a huge improvement over my Clearaudio! Huge. The PRAT is fantastic and the sound floor is silent. I can’t imagine a better sounding rig for my system. At any cost.
  2. Had one of these years ago. Many, many amps later it's still the best sound I ever heard in my system. I wish I had kept it just to have....
  3. Tidal works great for me. I use the Tidal app from my phone in my car and Oppo Media Controller from my phone, iPad or laptop with my system at home. Haven't had an artist come up empty yet. I agree with avguytx that hi rez streaming is just beginning. My concern is most gen x, y and z's couldn't care less about music fidelity. Much of what they listen to can barely be described as music and is usually highly synthesized and/or auto tuned.
  4. Just another JMA equipment owner wishing Mark all the best. I love my Peach and look forward to many years of enjoyable listening with it. I was lucky enough to meet Mark and his wayyyy better half when they were down in Los Angeles a couple of years ago and can't imagine a nicer couple. All the best, Chris Keep me posted on the cable venture. Maybe a line named after Pasta? Fettucine speaker cable? Angel Hair interconnects?
  5. I have to chime in here for my old friend Dr. Bruce Edgar. Who, btw, had a fairly close relationship with PWK. His Edgarhorn Titan system, including the Seismic Sub is the single best sounding system I've ever heard. Coming in #2 is Josh's (forum member) modified Belle based system with Dr. Edgars modified K-Horn's coming in third. The Edgarhorn system was powered by a pair of very expensive, custom made amps. The sound was amazing!
  6. Hey Sensei, Aron and I have been talking about going to some more of Merle's shows at LAX. Is there anyone coming up that would get you (and maybe also your wife that you married so far over your head) off your duff and out to have a burger with us? Regards, Chris PS I take it as a personal offense, your "...plastic turntable..." wisecrack. kidding....
  7. swingcat420, I live in the South Bay and am very interested. However, due to WAF, I would need to sell my Cornwalls first. Is anyone intersted in a great looking pair of Cornwall's?
  8. Gary, Gotta agree with you for the most part. In fact, I've been surprised more than a few times when a "must have" vinyl reissue came out and I was disappointed to find out after listening to it, the content didn't have any "legs". At least not for me. On the other hand, some old school reissues have really been a great musical experience. One reissue that sticks out in my mind is Pink Floyd's "Dark Side Of The Moon". I couldn't wait to buy it and after it arrived I played it and was amazed at the great sound. The only problem was the "music" had passed me by. I doubt I'll ever play it again except for demonstration purposes. Then again...after my son moves out of the house...the wife and I could invite some friends over...roll a fat one...queue it up to the begining of "The Wizard Of Oz" and see if we were really enlightened way back when or just too buzzed to know the difference........ Regards, Chris
  9. Allan, Who was that masked man? Seriously, who was that? Parrot, Kelly or some other ghost from forums past?
  10. I hope this hasn't already been posted here, but it's pretty good news for the analog crowd. To boil it down, Warner Bros/Rhino/Reprise has commissioned 100's of new and previously released albums to be re-mastered and released on Vinyl. Some of the artists will be Van Morrison, White Stripes, Joni Mitchell, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Frank Sinatra, James Taylor and dozens more. I'm guessing WB is trying new/old ways to generate revenue in the age of the iPod. For more info, take a look at the following link - http://www.stevehoffman.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=112018 Regards, Chris
  11. Dr. Bruce Edgar's SoCal Horn Group will be getting together this coming Saturday, 1:00pm at his buddie's workshop in Torrance. While usually pretty heavy on the techno talk, there's always some great music to be heard on some fabulous equipment. Not to mention, Bruce is a rare character. I'm doubtful I can attend as I'm stepping off the red-eye from Honolulu at 6;00am that morning, but I'm gonna try. The location is 2539 W. 237th St Torrance, CA. Unit I (that's an i). Follow the link to Bruce's post over on AudioAsylum.com http://www.audioasylum.com/forums/hug/messages/122277.html Regards, Chris PS Hey Allan, the wife, my son and the inlaws have been going to Merle's shows at LAX lately. There's been some pretty good stuff. Last week we heard Janis Mann with Tamir, Chuck Berghofer and Merle's husband. Great Show! Janis was unbelievably nice to us and may even be voice-coaching my son. Maybe you and the Mrs could meet us there sometime. The 6:00pm starting time makes it early enough for me to hear the 1st set and still be asleep by 8:00pm.
  12. Chris good to see you posting! How you been? Captain Grumpy? Who me [] Craig, I've been doing better than I deserve. Sounds like your hobby/business has turned into much more business than hobby! I still get viagra'd when I think of the pictures I saw here of the job you did on Allan's C-22. That's the prettiest picture of stereo innards I've ever seen! And if Allan gives it his stamp of approval, that's sayin' sump'n. Regards, Chris PS What ever happened to Kelly? Did his OCD get the best of him? kidding.....
  13. I have the same model (also expertly refurb'd by Captain Grumpy) with same cabinet (slightly lighter stain) in my 2nd system. At the asking price, it's a GREAT deal! Everytime I futz with my MC-225's and put the Scott back in the main system, it sounds so good that I wonder why I spent all the money for my separates.
  14. I tend to agree on everything you say about Armstrong. I have actually wondered why he doesnt show up much (or at all as far I have seen) in your recommendation or what you are listening posts. It has been one of those conspicuous by its absence sort of things. I remember is an old post about Teagarden, Jazzman referred to Armstrong as a novelty act. I let it go at the time but since kind of assumed that the die-hard be pop crowd didnt care for him much. I am happy to see that at least for you that is not the case! Josh BTW What do you think are the "have to have" armstrong lps? Josh, You are the devil! Chris PS Talk about suffering for your art..tonight, in the name of being a good...no...great father, I have to sit through a Los Angeles Clippers (that's a basketball team) game from the very highest seats in Staples Center. gotta go........
