Back from DC
« on: 11 Nov 2017, 01:20 am »
OK

Back from the Capfest...and somewhat back to normal since yesterday....it was as anticipated:

big shitty room with a noisy AC that we couldn't control,  but halved the room for a fantastic listening stage...great sound, great people,  great business....tiring like hell with all the driving etc....

however,  dinner with Rim at Filomena was incredible.....
and I came back with 2 K + in records...guess Daddy went overboard,  but then again,  Daddy is happy....and for some of you in the know,  thanks for asking and your concerns: yesterday Powder has had his best blood test in 7 months and is just short of normal....sometimes medicine does help....


late,

Klaus

Thank you for the update.  It’s great to hear that it was a positive experience.  I’m sure the room sounded great!  And I’m happy to hear about your pup.  A great show, time with friends, some new records and a pup that’s doing well....life is good!  :D

You definitely got hosed with that room. Fortunately practically everyone there has heard your stuff and knows better.

Guest DJ in the Odyssey room when we visited. Hint: he's familiar with the turntable.

I enjoyed the dinner -- definitely the best Osso Bucco ever.
Good bottle of Amarone also.


Sorry, couldn't make it back Sunday.  I was planning to but things came up and I had a concert to go in the evening. 

See you in Axpona, may be. 

P.S. I will send you the cart.

Congratulations  on these new reviews
I am really enjoying my Kismet in Stratos,  ( six months now) but some times I wonder maybe I should have ordered the Kartago Extreme mono's  Since those are the ones you use at the Shows , Yes, but I am very happy with what you built for  me with those big 35 K hyper  Capacitors they take as much as 45 seconds to 1.5 Min's to discharge ( I turn the unit off only to change the IC or recently a power cord from PS audio ) My Stratos is being  fronted by PS Audio Directstream DAC>Don Sach's -2 Preamp.( custom built ) ( SP 14-) and of course the very good Groneberg  Quattro Ref. cables. ! into the Maggi 1.7i
Happy Holidays my Friend !

Congratulations Klaus!!! Now that I got my VPI setup, I award myself. The VPI is just blending in very well with all your Odyssey gears.

Yeah...Friday was the %^#^&$((^&$(&^$%  tired night,  and actually went back and worked on the room after dinner for a couple of hours...sleep ?  who needs stinkin' sleep.

One quick shoutout to Filomenas:  I lived for a short time in Italy( 4 months or so total time spent)  and I can say  with absolute conviction that as far as my  my favorite dessert ( Tiramisu )  is concerned,  this one that night was the best I have ever had...just ridiculously good...you guys in the DC area are very lucky indeed
