maxg Posted December 14, 2007 Share Posted December 14, 2007 After a long break I have decided to re-open the Taverna for the inmates. For those new to the forum it was something we did a few years ago. The Ouzo is now on tap - as is the Tsipouro - a selection of Greek wines fill the cellar and there are 4 beers on tap - you can all decide what they are. Sadly the live band has not turned up (after what happened last time with Thebes and the belly dancer who can blame them? I still can't look a potato in the eye after that one!! Anyway - as a change (and blatently stealing an idea from one of Thebes own posts earlier this week) we are re-inventing ourselves as an audiophile taverna. Entrance is free but you must bring either a piece of equipment or a recording with you to gain entrance. Items of equipment can be swapped out with items already installed - if the presenter can guaranttee the sonic result will be better. If the majority decide they are wrong then the originator has to match Fini quip for quip 4 times. Try to stick to items of equipment you either own or have owned. If we go straight to $200,000 stuff it will all end very quickly. In order to minimize wars you cannot suggest the following replacements: A Nosvalves amp with a Juicymusic amp - or vice versa. A Khorn with a Jubilee or vice versa. If needs be we will create a second system upstairs to cater for items that really ought to be incorporated. Also - as this is a bar and we will need some power - lets not go down the SET route. Another war we do not need. If you dont want to contribute equipment - remember we need music desperately. Right now we have 600 classical recordings, 48 operas and the Carpenters. I will kick things off with my own TT: Clearaudio Master Solution, TQI Souther linear tracking arm, Denon 103, outer ring, inner ring, clearaudio centre weight, clearaudio power supply/speed changer, Acoustic signature Tango phono stage and clearaudio harmonicer vinyl matt. So lets start off looking for pre-amps, amps, speakers (I wonder what make we will all go for??), cables etc. etc. Hope this takes off - I will look a complete idiot if it doesn't - not that this will be news of course....
