    Dipping My Toes In Vintage Waters

    Man that cassette deck is beautiful - I love a nice looking tape deck. I miss my Pioneer CTF 850 - thought has crossed my mind as recording cassettes was a real blast in the 80s - a kind of ritual (set the bias, clean the heads etc, write up labels, open the new Maxell/TDK tape...)

    D3A Phono Amplifier

    Looks awesome. I'm really enjoying the simplicity of my setup (using phono in my preamp) but this is making me think about building something.

    Cheap Coffee

    Yep - at 19 bucks for 12 ounces - I no longer wing it. I used to just free pour and guess - but then again it was Starbucks French Roast - and I was thinking at the time - god there must be better tasting coffee.

    Tube Amp Recs for JBL Olympus

    I was going to say Latino gear - love my M125s. Cool thing about the M125 are all the many config options - I'm running mine with just two output tubes - plenty of power and light on my Mullard Rectifiers. And all the redundancy

    Is There Such a Thing as a Better Sounding Streamer?

    I have progressed from my first streaming setup - to my latest one and the biggest change is convenience. It may sound better and likely does - but my old setup sounded pretty great. My first streaming setup: Old iPhone 4s - sitting on iPure dock - with digital output into a Cambridge Audio...

    Amazon Music HD

    I might have to give this a try. I'm currently paying for Pandora One and Spotify Premium. I'm thinking of ditching Spotify due to their lack of a thumbs down button on radio. I find it very frustrating when a song comes on that I cannot stand - and all I can do is press the 'Heart" to love...

    More Amp Construction

    You get to do it all over again.

    I'd probably go with a simpler system - perhaps a nice high end Yamaha Integrated and some high quality monitors. Then again my system is pretty stable and I sure like glowing tubes. Who knows.

    This is a vent post......

    Sorry to hear about that - I've definitely been there. I'm glad the gear chasing demon is off my back and occupied with other things. I'm just chillin at work enjoying lowfi - with an iPad - Spotify and a cheap fake tube amp. I hope things turn around for you. Best of luck. Chris

    Thanks for sharing. I’ve got Sonny Rollins lined up for today. Village Vanguard (1958) That must have been the coolest place - I love my Bill Evans set on vinyl
