  1. B. I'm very happy with them. These were out of my price range and I was looking at the Vento, a step down the ladder. They weren't available in white (a waf requirement) and these were offered at the same price, a 40% discount from asking, so I jumped. They're German all the way, detailed, fast, a bit on the cool side and extremely well built. They have a real presence about them without being forward. God, I've read too many hifi mags. At the asking price there would be alot of competition but the discount made them a great buy.
  2. As you travel on thru life, whatever be your goal, keep your eye upon the doughnut and not upon the hole.
  3. Found myself in the same situation. Exercise first. Turn the system on, get your 45 minutes to an hour in (household chores, walking, jogging, swimming or whatever come back, you and your system are warmed up and ready to go.
  4. Who knew there was such a thing as a Norwegian jazz and country hybrid? Sounds better than it sounds.
  5. New Canton A 35's, Vincent SV 237 and Audiolab m dac+ An acquaintance on e-bay suggested SNA with a word of caution 3 years ago. 3 integrateds, 3 pairs of speakers and 4 dacs later here we are. I'm confident this system will see me thru this life and into the next. Yeah, right.
  6. The speakers are now sold pending pick-up and payment tomorrow.
  7. Mitch, They haven't yet sold but I'm currently talking with someone in Sydney that can pick them up this weekend. If we don't work something out I'll let you know. Thanks, Mike

  9. Always been a sucker for jazz violin. Bass, guitar and violin beautifully performed and recorded.
  10. The Art Vandelay of Vandelay Industries?
  11. In honor of the Washington Nationals making it to the World Series for the first time since 1933. At 67 I was wondering if I would ever see it. It Don't Mean a Thing If It Ain't Got That Go Go Swing!
  12. Saw his trio at the Smithsonian Atrium in the 70's. Beautiful setting. Nice set. Seeing the photo of him playing at the Roy Hargrove tribute made being 67 a lot more palatable. Rest in Peace.
  13. Selby stepped up and took care of a warrantee issue with a SV 237 I purchased from another dealer during a change of distributor sale. The new distributor mistakenly sent me to a repair shop in Sydney that refused to work on the unit. Selby stepped up and handled the repair and covered shipping to and from Sydney to Melbourne. Extraordinary and much appreciated. Thank you again Fred.
  14. A rare night time session (at least its dark outside) courtesy of Thursday late shopping. Though I'd spend the time with one very sexy lesbian. How could my wife object to that?
