Ladies and Gents, any interest in coming out to my place to take at look at my newest toys ? I have made a couple changes to my MCH system since the last time the GASSER's were here - replacing my Vandersteen V2W single subwoofer with a 5-piece Audiokinesis SWARM subwoofer array, and I acquired a Koetsu Urushi Gold MC phono cartridge feeding an Audio Research PH-6 toob phono stage.
Bigger news is I completely re-did my "lounge" 2-channel system and went all Class A analog with minimal amplification stages - namely 5 total from the MM phono cartridge to the speakers. This system definitely comes alive with the right recording. The Pass Aleph 5 and the Spendor SP-1's are a match made in heaven. Here is a picture of the system.
I am thinking late October - maybe Sat. Oct. 28 or Sun. Oct. 29. Let me know your availability and preferences via PM. I will give you my phone # and directions there !!
UPDATE: the open house is open to all Major Dudes and Dudettes, in honor of Walter Becker of Steely Dan, who noted that a Major Dude is simply a friend who comes to your aid when life seems hopeless. Saturday the 28th is the date, since I forgot I have tickets for the 3 pm concert of the SLSO (Beethoven's 5th) on Sunday, the 29th.
Time will be from 2 pm until whenever. Please RSVP your interest by this time next week via PM so I can stock adequate provisions. (I already have a case of Yuengling lager and Bud Selevt in my icebox, so that part is covered.)
