  1. Thanks George. I nosed before and read more but who know w/o hearing it. Thanks for that Paul you're exactly right. That rabbit hole Linn has is waaaaay deep! Gotta have this on before you can get that put on could hit a moron hard in the wallet. I'd almost have to hear a difference before I spent that much.
  2. Can you hear me in the back??? Bill Hanley e v e r y show.
  3. Ohhhh, I don't think it took them very long at all. hahaha Sound guys who worked together back in the day would figure out where you rest your fingers on that board in passages, etc. Played a game painting those spots. Always had a backup straight guy just waiting most of the time. lol I thought it was funny as heck when they were all toast. Gotta watch those guys they're sneaky like that!
  4. I ran a 1229 in my first system and drooled for a few years saving everything I could to buy a new one. Stopped to see a tech I knew one day. He boarded for quite a few rock bands I knew and teched on the side for a stereo shop. We started talking rigs and I wondered what he was running. He told me and it was an impressive array. Then outta the blue he said he had to sell his Linn table. My heart stopped and I asked how much and bought it. That was in 80 or 81. One month old and I think I payed him 15-1800US with the Karma Cart. It's the heartbeat of the system and I love the sound. New Dynavector 20X2h made it sing. A few weeks ago I was talking a better cart with my Linn dude. He said nope. He said to put a Lingo on the table for 2k and I'd totally flip out. So next summer that goes on I guess. hahaha @Full Rangewhat you heard about a Lingo your way? You KNOW how cheap I am! lol
  5. A fan? Nope not me. 😂 Kids I knew would want me to play. Yup, sliced and diced in a nano second. Both my girls AND the kids would then proceed to laff their rears off at me. Ok, round 2, I can do better. These kids aren't gonna do this to me. Nope, first they blew my gonads off THEN they sliced and diced me. No Mas!
  6. That certainly is a different twist on that one! Don't know what would have happened if they both initially rellease on the same day? I'd prolly have both now. 😂
  7. Great story I bookmarked for some reason... 😂 😎 https://allthatsinteresting.com/engineer-accidentally-takes-lsd?fbclid=IwAR2W8q9Dg9xahG7GKfHGy9PTYC2ZY4EYf0cFzij4ldfGDexwxzTZHiG_RrA
  8. Actually, life should be more left of center for a lot of people. It's lame riding a bicycle, tanked in the right lane! 😂 😂
  9. Neither one of you guys are right! Be more like Dave, just a lil bit left of center! 😂😎
  10. This Mac receiver, the old oppo and my lil Heresy's are spoiling me. Too easy to push a couple buttons, throw on a couple cd's and waste a day. I look at it this way though. I'm saving tube life! hahaha I'm worthless fo sure! EJ's Yellow Brick is killing it right now! Wait, let me put my feet up just a bit whille I watch a soundless Andy Griffith on MeTV. Pathetic isn't it? 😂
  11. We have a BINGO not a BOGO! 😂 Back to the River is the seventh studio album by blues musician Susan Tedeschi, released October 28, 2008, on Verve Forecast.[1] Production was handled by Tedeschi herself and her husband Derek Trucks, with George Drakoulias co-producing all tracks except "Butterfly". Upon its debut, Back to the River received favorable reviews from music critics. The album peaked at number one on the Billboard Top Blues Albums. The album has received positive reception from critics. In a review for AllMusic, Steve Leggett praised Tedeschi's improved songwriting and called her singing "a wonderful instrument, strong and hushed by turns."[1] The album was nominated for the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album, her fifth Grammy nomination to date, but lost to her husband's Already Free.[2] GREAT lp IF you can find it. Susan shines throughout!
  12. Unzipped this one for a first run thru. Not too shabby and its honestly "Nothin But The Blues!" Some good stuff for sure. By showtime I'll have every nuance and word! lol
  13. Always lost my Joe Walsh lp's so I decided to nose a bit in a crate. Found a few sealed ones and a few I didn't know I had. Here's it's always one of those "yea, buts" when I start nosin. Pulled this thing out and thought of Full Range. lol "Face to Face" recorded in 1978 wasn't too shabby either! The Angels are an Australian rock band which formed in Taperoo, a small beachside suburb in Adelaide in 1974 as The Keystone Angels by Bernard "Doc" Neeson on lead vocals and bass guitar, John Brewster on rhythm guitar and backing vocals, his brother Rick Brewster on lead guitar and backing vocals, Charlie King on drums. In 1976, King was replaced by Graham "Buzz" Bidstrup on drums, Chris Bailey took over bass duties so Neeson could focus solely on vocals, and they changed their name to just 'The Angels'. Their studio albums peaking within the Australian top 10 are No Exit (1979), Dark Room (1980), Night Attack (1981), Two Minute Warning (1984), Howling (1986) and Beyond Salvation (1990). Their top 20 singles are "No Secrets" (1980), "Into the Heat" (1981), "We Gotta Get out of This Place" (1987), "Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again" (live, 1988), "Let the Night Roll On" and "Dogs Are Talking" (both 1990). A LOT of AC/DC ish but weren't too bad.
  14. Larkin Poe is an American roots rock band originally from north Georgia, currently based in Nashville, Tennessee,[1] and fronted by sisters Rebecca Lovell (born January 30, 1991) and Megan Lovell (born May 12, 1989). Featuring strong southern harmonies, heavy electric guitar riffs, and slide guitar, they are often touted as "the little sisters of the Allman Brothers".[2] The band performed at the 2014 and 2016 Glastonbury Festival and were voted "Best Discovery of Glastonbury 2014" by the UK's The Observer. The sisters have also toured as backing musicians for a variety of other bands, most notably Elvis Costello, Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes, Kristian Bush of Sugarland, and Keith Urban.
  15. Buckle up cause they're great!
  16. Ok, how bout some Larkin Poe w/Ray Wylie now? hahaha BOOM! Yup Larkin Poe is fantastic!
  17. Few big guns right here too!
  18. Ok Johnboy just for you! Yea, yea... lol
  19. Love me some Nils. Fan forever and I don't think he's touring w/Springsteen this time out. Maybe another knee or hip replacement. No Clarence either so no me! lol
  20. ^^^^^^^^^^ he ain't just whistlin Dixie either.
  21. Saw where she passed. Sad, she was great in her time!
  22. Gotta beat John on this post... Joe Walsh? ILBT"s??? CLASSIC Joe up in Warren, Ohio! Don't laff too hard!
  23. Anyone that spins vinyl has, I'm sure, been in the same position as you are when it comes to carts. I was lost yet craving the "right" sound for me when I was putting my system together. Tossed it out in the "Vinyl Spinning" group and was told about the Blackbird. I listen and when it came time to have my Linn table gone over my Linn tech said he'd get a Bllackbird in for me if I wanted it. Naturally, I asked what he recommended and he said he always had a Dynavector 20X2H high output moving coil in stock. He told me he'd heard both and had installed both but his fav was the Dynavector. Then. I hit youtube and nosed. I just trusted in my school trained tech who's been in the business for 40 years. Why not? I could always change if I didn't like it. I brought the table home and in two minutes (maybe less) fell in love all over again. Might throw a Blackbird on next but they're both about the same thing spec wise. I do love the Dynavector though. My 2-channel food chain is the Linn table, Schiit Mani phono pre, Prima Luna Integrated, LS RB and a JBL SP128S sub box. Just my .02 cents worth. Welcome to the Forum!
