  1. There are also incredibly good musicians in Scandinavia, one of whom is called "Jan Garbarek". His album " 12 moons" is a "must have" for every jazz lover

  2. I have the entire collection of" Supertramp " at home. There is hardly a rock band that fascinates me as much. The lyrics, voices, compositions remain unique and remain unforgettable.                                                                                                             015.gif

  3. We should call this thread "Genesis Thread" from now on...0067.gif


    I have the first two solo albums of Peter Garbriel as the first pressing " Label Charisma Records " in 1977 and his second album " Label Virgin Charisma "from 1978.
    I heard these two albums more often than my entire Genesis record collection

    I haven't been following it too closely ... there are at least two cases in my town though.

    Twitter was ablaze with criticism of President Trump for saying that the death rate was 1% folks on twitter are saying it's four percent (based on USA statistics).  Given the varying medical facilities, procedures, and restrictions, I wonder how to determine an accurate "overall" fatality rate or if that is even possible or applicable?

    Given the numbers posted above, 1170 cases in Germany and only two deaths isn't 4%

    can we compare or it silly to even try?

    every year more people in Germany die of an ordinary flu. One should relativize the virus, but what makes it so dangerous we do not know yet, worldwide researchers are working on vaccines. I hope they have rapid results.

    So far the only effect on me from this Corona virus is low bank interest. But there could be a multitude of issues forthcoming.


    In Germany there has been no interest on bank balances for a long time. Thanks to the monetary policy of the ECB, it is better to spend it .56.gif

    This is not directed to you but is this shocking in any manner? 


    We can clearly see what is happening in other countries and it will happen here.  Contrary to what we are told, we are not special and in fact we are collectively relatively lazy and ignorant.  Watch the BBC, Canadian new, Australian news, or Al Jazeera if you want a perspective from the outside. 


    Cases are spiking here as some testing is now occurring, expect the numbers to rise very rapidly.  I see 15,000 new cases worldwide since Friday on the Johns Hopkins site.  2.5 days.

    It is not shocking, it was to be expected and we will probably reach similar dimensions as the "SARS" virus in 2003.

  8. 1.170 Coronavirus infected in Germany, 2 have died, all events over 1.000 people will be cancelled, also football matches will take place without audience, the borders in Europe, especially to Italy ( 9.172 infected and 366 deaths ), will be closed.  The situation in Europe is becoming more serious ..

    Gary in my post is just a local dude who's been playing for prolly 50 years.  He's just a good friend and the leader of the pack.  They're all pushing 60 and have been playing together since they were kids.  Every cover of everything they do is great.  No improv just the original song the way it was recorded.  They do run doin their thang once in a while though.  All the guys that are there are the same way.  The others play in other central Ohio groups.  The bass man played around for a while in Foghat.  They rythmn dude also plays keyboards.  His son plays the drums.  Gary is just a mailman getting ready to retire.  The real treat is when this dude who used to play drums w/Black Label Society & Zakk Wylde shows up.  He worked their tours and sat in at times.  That dude can git it.  He just flops down and makes a cheap kit sound great.  He NEVER misses.  Twice I've thought he was gonna miss but both times he nailed it.  He looks at me and we both laff.  He's a tease!  lol  When Gary retires I'm sure they'll all get together and play more.  Just a nice time with like minded people.  Typical bar out front w/some tables & shuffleboard then they have a big back room w/a bar and tables and chairs.  It's laid back and just lots of good people.

    so this is what it looks like ........

    Must have been the "secret sauce":lol:


    I was surprised when my Fortes started to sound even more full a few months in. Did not do the "break in" things like running them non-stop for a few days. So it must have been at a certain point a hundred or so hours in.


    Yes....Thanx...I´ll do 0040.gif

    Noooooooo, it´s nooooot the german wonderfluid ......0068.gif



    ...but there is so much copper used in the external crossovers , that needed approx. 200 / 300 hours of operation to burn it in.

    ...but it also requires a lot of patience if you want to experience how the sound characteristics change positively over time

    You sure have a lot of the favorite musicians of mine that I listened to on "Jazz Flavors" a Sunday evening radio show here long ago. That's how I got my exposure to the genre.

    I put Al Jarreau's voice up there with the greats Sinatra, Cole, Mathis..........

    These artists will all live forever and ever and inspire us with their music..........

    this is going to be a great crossover -no doubt , I just wonder if the speaker can reach this level of sonic quality , you know best of , course -

    The horn and the two 10" drivers have now been controlled by the external crossover for a good 3 weeks and yes, it's amazing what a precision machine the MK II has become. The authenticity, the impulse speed, the timing, the locatability, the fine- and coarse dynamics, the resolution, the three-dimensionality, its overall dynamics in the entire FQ spectrum from brilliance to the deepest bass ranges ... everything is breathtaking and lets the MK II easily play in the $20,000 class. And if you turn it up even more, it will take all the more pleasure to show you how much fun it is to play with. It's one of the most fascinating speakers I've ever seen and heard. Every cent was worth it to be invested. The end result is in no relation to that.

    To give you an idea of what I mean by that:
    We take the test results of the German HiFi magazine Audio :


    Test report about the RF 7 ...total sum of sound points in the Audio 90 points, RF 7 MK II 95 points, RF7 MK III 97 points, MicroMara's RF7 MK II at least 125 points.


    This is how I would differentiate it as the editorial tax of an audio magazine.103.gif

    Billy Cobham would not play for them  ( I wouldn't think).

    He'd rather play with George Duke, live in Europe             0017.gif                      3.gif                  36.gif
