For my own record if not others I am inspired to start keeping a daily audio diary, I have a terrible memory, so I may need this.
I expect this will reflect just how audio obsessed I really am, I hope some find it of interest
Sat 1st March
Wife and Kids out in the morning and early afternoon, so fired up the Prima Luna Prologue 2, give it 10 mins to warm up, turned the Dell XPS420 on,
it automatically powers up the Audio Engine D1, and launched Foobar. I have never been happy with Foobar, I struggle again to find a layout I like, and
go back to using Windows Explorer to choose albums to listen to. Today it was Midlakes Trials of............and McCartneys Almost Full.
The Macca CD is really badly mastered and has to be turned down 25% compared to The Midlake, great songs as ever by Mr Pop but a very
harsh listen, my eyes and brain are still recovering from the previous nights lightshow at a gig I went to.
I put an LP on instead, Ashes to Ashes on my LP12, that is better.
In the early evening, off to a family 60th party nearby, the people are nice I know, but what gets me there on time is that the birthday boy
has Quad 63s with Gradient subs, a sublime speaker, powered by a full Quad 66/606 CD/Pre/Power system. As with early Quad systems
the Cd player and pre amp lets things down. I turn it up a bit, but at any volume these never sound loud. He is lucky to have a big room
, by London standards anyway, and it does the speakers justice, as we say in SE London, Well Jell.
