    Today's Rock/Hard Rock/Classic Rock Playlist

    I have been listening to both the 192 and 96 versions of Countdown to Ecstacy via Qobuz this evening, and although I like the additional detail, puncher guitars, and lack of grunge, it sounds way too grating for my tastes. I have tried both my DACs, a PS Audio DSD DAC and a Holo Audio Spring...

    So tonight I plugged in...

    @Andyman I don't think that was the model, but yes, I did get him some Sony Reciever via you. I am not even sure if he still has it as we seem to use a Bluetooth Flip 4 or 5 when we are sitting around his pool and or fire pit. Going to his house Sunday and will have to check.

    What's in your glass?

    Egads, Great Lakes Brewing now has a year-round DIPA that is 9.0%, does not taste strong, has a soft mouthfeel, is not bitter, and is reasonably priced. Oh yea, you can get it in 19.6 OZ cans too! For those special occasions.

    What's in your glass?

    Last time I was beer shopping in Fla I asked about that Cigar City IPA. The store owner said, "You like IPAs, you try some Bell's Two-Hearted, the best IPA out there." I was like, "Yea, I am from Michigan, where they sell Two-Hearted at Costco. But how is the Cigar City IPA?" "I'm not a fan."...

    Damping Factor question

    There was a recent letter in The Absolute Sound about damping factor(s) that piqued my interest. The letter said that high-damping factor amps might not produce bass with certain speakers. This pretty much described a situation a friend went through in the early 80s. He updated his amp from...

    Altec & SET people…do you use conditioner?

    @DC told me he got an improvement with the Shunyata Denali 2000/T conditioner and some Shunyata uber cable, BUT he got more of an improvement when he updated the wiring to his room.

    @Wntrmute2 Dale heard me playing a couple of cuts from that Patricia Barber Cafe Blue SACD at @DC 's meet and was asking about her. I thought he was fucking with me when he asked who it was.

    Haven Radio Today's Playlist

    How strange, another local had just pointed me to a Famous Coachman set, but I never got it to play. I remember working days at Cadillac for a couple of years (6:00 AM ~ 3:30 PM) and when The Coachman would come on I would think, "I have to be at work in 4 hours, should I go home and sleep...

    May 2023 SMAC, the fanciest SMAC?

    You are correct sir. I have forgotten most of that meeting, other than the chili, and dreams of stealing the leftovers with Mike's Dog, was it Pete?
