    Best Carpet For Taming Room?

    My new listening is a combo of bare walls, floor to ceiling glass, and hardwood floors. Not perfect for sound reproduction! Any recommendations for the best type of carpet to use to help with the floors? Looking at a carpet between the speakers and the listening chair.

    So.....What's Been Going On Around Here?

    Well, that’s pretty lazy. You take off for six months, don’t post in the interim, and then you show up and want us to do all the work? I figure you owe us at least a few paragraphs about what you have been doing. :)

    Yamaha PF-1000 turntable, Detroit pickup $350.

    They are really unique and beautifully designed pieces, aren’t they? And the finish on the 1000 really leaves the 800 in the dust. So much more elegant looking.

    Yamaha PF-1000 turntable, Detroit pickup $350.

    What a fantastic deal. I’ve seen the turntable in the flesh, and it is gorgeous. Put my 800 to shame.

    Dang it. Fell off the wagon. Active anyone?

    That’s how I’ve been living for a year now, and I don’t see going back. DSP and powered speakers are the bomb.

    heard on the Beeb today: GM is throwing in the towel on the Holden brand

    well, thats a guy with some bad luck, as those are statistically two of the most reliable cars available. The Volt for years had the highest customer satisfaction of any car. I don’t know what me driving a Ford has anything to do with it. This car is a Ford, the one before that was a Dodge...

    heard on the Beeb today: GM is throwing in the towel on the Holden brand

    GM is actually doing pretty well, and Is a leader in EV technology. Ford, On the other hand, is in pretty rough shape. The F-150 keeps them alive.

    Any Havenites Shave With A Double Edge Safety Razor?

    Unboxing some more today, and came across my lovely Muhle (add dots over the u) shaving brush. Not something I’d use every day, but perfect for a luxurious shave.

    Any Havenites Shave With A Double Edge Safety Razor?

    Did you get the shiny one? Probably only time in history that you will have something more sparkly then me. Did you get the matching Merkur brush? The set looks lovely, though be prepared for some shedding at first.

    We do have to see some of the end results of your work. What kind of ceramics are you doing?

    A New Box Arrived

    I didn’t get a chance to listen much today, but the very unscientific comparison I did showed it to be a good step up over the very nice dac built into the Node 2. Do you recall if yours did any breaking in?

    A New Box Arrived

    I was actually hunting for another North Star, preferably a few steps up the line. They just don’t come up for sale very often. The guys I’ve talked to who have had them, especially the Totl Supremo, say some version of they will never sell it.

    A New Box Arrived

    I stupidly sold it. Well, it wasn’t stupid at the time, what with moving going on, and knowing I’d be without a system for many months. In retrospect, it was stupid, however. I’ve never heard more musical DACs then Northstar.
