    Circa Survive new album "Blue Sky Noise" 4/20/10

    I expected this album to be more complex (they way the previous albums progressed), but I like this change in sound. Your comment is identical to what my girlfriend said. BTW, Are you stationed on Wright-Pat? I'm at Davis-Monthan. Don't find alot of other Airmen into good tunes.

    Circa Survive new album "Blue Sky Noise" 4/20/10

    P-mount cartridge under $100?

    Hmmm, more to think about on the cart front (still haven't invested in a new one yet ) Anyhoo, I finally got around to cleaning the JVC out (both thorough internal dusting and a De-Oxit bath), and it sounds pretty damn sweet. All internal gremlins are gone, or haven't shown back up yet, and...

    P-mount cartridge under $100?

    So, regarding the Grado black vs. the Green, is it worth the cost of upgrade, or am I even going to be able to tell? The table is a Technics SLBD20D, and the receiver is a JVC JA-S22.

    The End "Elementary"

    I picked up The End's 2007 album "Elementary" on a whim a few weeks ago, listened to it in the car and chucked it on the CD rack dismissing it as a mediocre at best. I pulled it out when ripping all of my albums in iTunes the other day and have been listening to it in rotation with the new...

    Budget 2ch Home Theater speakers.

    The Magnapans look amazing, but I think my cat would annihilate them (maybe you remember my Virtual Dynamics cable...). There is a dealer of PSB speakers right down the road from me, I will have to go check them out.
