  1. Upgraded my Auralic Aries G2 with a Hoer-Wege PSU ordered from Germany. “not as exciting as fresh raised turkeys”
  2. Just my 2 cents. I graduated from The University of North Florida BBA 3.79 One of my best friends continued his academic studies and is a tenured professor at Notre Dame. Based on his shared knowledge with me, the further you advance in academia the more important it is to embrace associations with influential contacts that can help you in your journey. Physics professors are right now “rock stars” on campus. Bottom line, it’s only a semester, he will make a little money and gain knowledge on a fascinating discipline.
  3. I have been trying to find this guy to see if he might be willing to give me an idea on refinishing my 904 cabinets.
  4. Nobeoka City, Japan (October 29, 2020)—In the wake of a massive three-day fire at the Nobeoka City factory of semiconductor producer Asahi Kasei Microsystems (AKM), pro-audio manufacturers around the globe are now facing anticipated shortages of crucial DAC and ADC chips used in their products. “It’s probably the most disruptive event in my 40 years of audio industry experience,” said John La Grou, CEO of Millennia Media. “Devastating is not too strong a word. Can 2020 get any worse?”

  8. I thought that the reveal of “your first album purchased” would be the big surprise, but after reading the responses, for me the “album itself” is not nearly as enjoyable as the wonderful stories that followed. My first album purchased was The Jimi Hendrix Experience but my first record purchase was a 45 rpm Jimi Hendrix: All Around the Watchtower / Burning of the Midnight Lamp. I grew up on a small farm and Dad paid $2.50 to mow the 1 acre plot the house set on. The animals ate the rest. The grass was Bahia so I mowed every Saturday. Was at a variety store called J M Fields with my Mom. She would walk through the store shopping and I was drawn to the isle with all the albums. Enjoyed looking at all the album covers. I listened to a radio station WAPE “The Big Ape” and had heard Jimi Hendrix. At the time the 45 rpm price was closer to what I was willing to spend. I lost count of how many times I listened to that 45, but next time I went to J M Fields I went straight to the Isle with albums and picked up Jimi Hendrix Experience.
  9. So what was your first album purchase. This could be your first 8 track, cassette or for the younger generations this may be a CD. I will start
  10. Cary SLP-05 Preamplifier Cary 805C Monoblock amplifiers NOS RCA 5691 red base gray plate 2020 Western Electric 300B Psvane 845 ACME
  11. A different set up using Marchand for crossovers and Auralic Lightning DS for EQing. Hoping future software upgrades will include Frequency response, phase & time alignment. I do like the dbx 360 venu that jwc has used.
  12. I have gone active Dave. What Seti is offering is a wonderful deal for someone.
  13. I am building a similar system and contacted Klipsch theatre representative on 12/9/19. The KPT 415 LF bins are $1,740 ea plus freight. Fantastic price on this setup.
  14. I buy whole bean, put it in the freezer and grind it fresh for each cup.
  15. I need to change out one of my tuning eye (cat’s eye) tubes on my Cary 805 C. Was seeking advice on how to remove the face plate to access the tube. Thanks Jim
  16. Thanks Maynard Read some more and find that the tube is used as a visual voltage indicator.
  17. Since rectifier was brought.... I have Cary 805C monoblocks that have one rectifier in each amp. Cary states as 1629/6U5. Researched and find that the 1629 and 6U5 is the same “if I am understanding it correctly”. One of the amps has the rectifier going out. Should I replace both ? They are both the same age.
  18. In my system as far as sound quality: In my experience interconnects “yes”. Speaker cables “not so much”. Heavier gauge for runs over 12 ft
  19. Hello Bill Just a follow up. Me and “The Big Guy” had a conversation in regards to Albert and this is how it went : I started off saying that I didn’t know Albert or yourself but that didn’t really matter. What did matter was Albert was currently having an issue that I was asking that He look into. I started with asking that He give Albert love & understanding.... He stopped me right there and just smiled, (that Big O’l God Smile) which means “thank you for caring and I hear you, I am very fond of Albert and the family, I’ve got this”
  20. I am considering SVANE WE845 Vacuum Tube (Western Electric Replica as I have read that they match up well with Klipsch horn speakers
  21. Hello Mike, so I have upgraded the 6SL7 and the 300B tubes. Now it’s time to address the 845’s What’s your thoughts ? Thank You in advance Jim
