I'm in the midst of a private, but loud "Sermon".

That Hammond does require tubes to sound its best....

You made my night! Vinyl or Digital Album? I inherited the former this year. It's clearly evident my peoples had a great time - the record has more scratches than Grandmaster Flash :tongue_smile:ever could.

 

I finally placed the diminutive :rolleyes:Sansui G-22000 on a wooden hand-truck; will roll it out:biggrin: for tonight's session... and hear The Sermon on the hard drive. Still, Mr. Smith needs a proper analog introduction. Will attempt to clean it up with the record cleaning machine Thursday night and fling it onto the MMF-7 with love from the Aurieges/Sinhonia. Scratches and all... 

 

Last week, there was some rekindling chat about the Big Russian. So Saturday evening, I pulled out the 2359glenn OTL Silver Hawk for a couple of hours with the 5U8C (I'm lacking the specialized character for print) sitting high post. I like the touch of euphony the Big Russian brings.

I only have the Blue Note CD :( but it is one of my favorites, especially if I feel a little down....

I'm feeling done buying gear and want more content. J Smith is high on my list!

I think he is real I just came back from visiting him at his home in Athens.

LOL , I had assumed he was just an elusive guy, I didn't realize he was rosgr63. :D 

 

When our Man & The Myth goes viral, we'll have to celebrate his celebrity inside the thread... :normal_smile :

I have 11 days off my day job that is when I plan on getting your amp finished.

 

Regarding your custom builds, I :wink_face:studied the metrics. It strongly suggests efficiency rose during your return from Greece. And likely again year-end. Clearly, we should all lobby your employer for Bi-Annual vacations on your behalf.

:beerchug:

Great to hear you're feeling better!

Pics required!

Did you have to cruise by Home Depot to get some hourly labor to help you?

Yum-O! At least there'll be no pops & clicks to make you jump out of your seat! :dt880smile: I'm not even sure how far into the record I'll be able to tolerate before I hit "Eject!"

I get so zoned on this disc I'm actually pleased to NOT have to hop up and flip the LP!

:dt880smile: You ain't heard nuthin' yet! My Astrud Gilberto "The Shadow Of Your Smile" (Double 45rpm) is so short, I gotta pull up my chair. How short? Track time between the two LPs is only about 25 minutes - and they repeated 2-3 tracks to fill the album... now that's short!

 

When playing those LPs, just call me Jack-in-the-box, 'cause I stand up and sit down in a hurry!

Funny that I never thought LPs were a hassle until I got a CD and could zone twice as long or pass out without my needle running out of music.

Then 20+ years later I get a iPod and HRT iStreamer and CDs seemed a bother.

Now I have to readjust myself so I can sit down (and then stand up) and enjoy me some vinyl!

looks like i'm gonna have to get a new car since mine is dead now, might be putting up alot of nice tubes for sale soon...

 

been thinking of just sticking to GSX MK2 for a while now (and a few headphones since the GSX does everything I want it to and works with everything), so maybe this was meant to be...  but anyways, i'll be happy with a new car to drive to work :D

Sorry to hear about your experience. But since a car is involved, this setback:wink_face: is just a mere bump in the road. You'll soon get back to audio and reach new heights. And "Happy Holidays!" to you and the family.
