Just a quick post on Keith's visit yesterday. Keith was coming back through Syd from melb where a new set of CH2's were delivered. I'm sure the owner has spent the weekend gobsmacked at their performance (as I do each time I sit in front of mine).
A small group assembled (and a few couldn't make it due to flu - next time fellas)
@Hensa, @Nigel, @Headbanger arrived around 2pm/3pm mark and but Keith and I had been well under way already listening to Jason Isbell, Jeff Tweedy, John Mellencamp and Rodney Crowell.
In my view - Rodney Crowell was the best of the music all day.
I cant recall the exact order of the recordings we listened to so I will just post the pics of the Albums. Finished around 10pm last night after a cracking day enjoying the system (most of which has come from Keith) and the music. The synergy I'm getting through the Cart, TT, Phono stages, Amp to CH2's is highly enjoyable/stunning in my assessment (somewhat bias I appreciate). I'm extremely satisfied with the sound I have and thanks must go to Keith and Dave for their advice on setup. Great folks to deal with.
Brinkman Tone arm is a week or so away - that may just about do me as end state. (ok for now - may investigate 2nd TT but not sure I really need it).
I think Nigel and Russ took some pics as well through the day.
Over to the albums played - as an observation, the 45rpm releases stand out for me. They just have more in the music.
Vanessa Fernandez (45rpm)
John Coltrane (45rpm)
Keb Mo and Taj Mahal
John Mayer (45rpm)
