    For you contra-cable guys...

    I spent an hour on the phone yesterday with Chris Sommovigo of Black Cat Cable. Chris has quite the reputation. Especially in Japan. He designed the Illuminati D60 digital cables back in the 90's that were the best! I still have and use mine. He even admits today, it is very hard to...

    AXPONA now rescheduled to August 7th - 9th.

    Just announced today. April 17th - 19th, now August 7th - 9th. Personally, I think it is a mistake. Situation will likely be worse by August. Then what? AXPONA 2020 to be re-scheduled in 2021? Of course everyone can just adjust their schedules at the whim of AXPONA. Crazy! Just...

    Considering changing amplifiers...

    My Llano Design A-300's are now 21 years old. 300W at 8 ohms as monoblocs. I bought them originally to deal with the impedance of the Martin-Logan ReQuests. They still are working fine and sound good but feel the need to retire them before re-capping is needed. Now with the Paradigm...

    Just curious. Today on vinyl, I listened to a 2 Bach violin concertos, Bach Goldberg Variations, a Schumann string quartet, a Brahms string quartet, 2 Strauss pieces and Sibelius symphony No 2. Just wonderful stuff. All of my records are from the mid '60s, to early 70's recordings. What...

    What happens when you get bored...

    A close friend and I decided to collaborate on some Beatles covers... Here's one you don't hear covered too often... I did the guitar, harmonium and drums... he did the vocals, bass and piano. Doing these covers are tricky, because the bar was set so high originally. ;-)...
