My exact sentiments.

While some of you are eagerly awaiting your Blue Hawaii Special Edition it's time for some adult music education (and entertainment).

 

In Scandinavia many people will think of the originally Swedish phenomenon dansbandmusik when "Blue Hawaii" is mentioned, and especially the song "Till mitt eget Blue Hawaii" (To my very own Blue Hawaii) performed by Vikingarna. The lyrics in Swedish and (somehow) translated to English.

 

Official video?:

 

 

Live on Swedish TV with people dancing:

 

 

Live in Oslo Spektrum (Norway) probably at a concert or dance: 

 

 

Some of you may draw lines between this and Sweden's by far most famous group ABBA. Observe the use of saxophones.

 

 

PS:

  • Many Norwegian audiophiles will regard this post about this dansband song and dansbands in general as swearing in the (audiophile) church.
  • Norwegian: "være som å banne i kirken" = "be as swearing in church" = "be beyond the pale"

We probably need to start giving Birgir (spritzer) credits on the T2 as well.

I didn't know Chuck Norris was playing the drums back in '91 :D.

You are absolutely correct. Spitzer has very generously contributed his time to improve the original design of the T2. I apologize for the omission. And to all the other great amp designers toiling away anonymously....a big thanks!

Has no one gotten theirs yet?

Hi All

A New subject? Anyone still got an SRM-717 and the SR-007s Mk2s? I was really interested in how the 717 compares to the BHSE?

Is it miles better in every way, or maybe just goes louder and is more dynamic?

 

I am quite happy with the 717 so far, but not hearing the BHSE I am curious if it is worth the jump in cost.

 

I have a tubed DAC none oversampling, so already have smooth digital front end and nice midrange. I was wanting to know

what the BHSE would bring to the table.

 

Any insight would be great guys.

I had the 717 before the BHSE landed.  The BHSE is better in all counts compared to the 717.  The BHSE has better resolution and transparency compared to the 717.  The 717 is also noticeably inferior in term of dynamics and punch.  Listening to the 717 still produce a nice and satisfying musical experience and its smooth sound may have an edge on bad recording material, but IMHO, the BHSE is simply just better in all areas.  This is with the SR009 by the way.
