    A new one to me- the term “non-fill”. Unfortunately not a new experience. I have been experiencing this od phenomenon lately uniquely with newer pressings. The first track, close to the edge, a short-lived, soft “ripping” or hash-like static sound, which can be both channels, but often in one...

    What CDP or DAC cured your itch to keep looking?

    I live with a decent collection of CDs, and enjoy the physical aspect and mechanics of playing CDs- I still remember the first CD player and rapid spinning CD I saw as a pre-teen already fascinated by music and music playback.

    Mushroom Party

    It’s been exceptionally wet in the Northeast of the USA, and mushrooms have been early and abundant. I’ve easily found three chicken of the woods- one just today and well past prime, but one yesterday, fresh and young, and one last week, also fresh and young. Usually I may get lucky and see some...

The album featured six different covers- essentially 12 photos of the same subject from different angles and distances in a room- each...

    Vintage GEC KT66 now playing

    Breaking in what I believe to be 100% truly NOS and authentic matched vintage GEC KT66. Beautiful examples with boxes in great condition. These are slated for the auction/for sale bin but I want to give them a few hours run-in (maybe 10, maybe 24?) before moving them along. I’ll likely never...
