We tentatively have scheduled Willie to bring his gloriously rebuilt and restored 1938 Wurlitzer jukebox amps for a visit. These amps are truly special, starting life as Type 771 amps with some way serious iron to last continuous 24-7-365 operation, two 30 driver tubes, 4 45 output tubes, and a 5Z3 rectifier. Willie creates beasts that are both exotic, rare, and special, so this is not a session to miss!

We will drop these into the kitchen system with the Altec 19s, so come hear some 45 tubes in full bay. We will target going from 12 noon to 6 pm, with a stock of Octoberfest beverages.

Willie has photos of the Wurlitzer restorations in his Drummerwill gallery. It is worth taking a look!

Sounds cool! It's a little far out to say for sure at this point, but I believe I should be able to make it.

In the den, we now have the Threshold FET One Series II preamp running with the Threshold S300 Series II amplifier, feeding our long fallowed Thiel CS3.6 speakers. Rich stopped by today, and after a couple hours of listening, he pronounced the Thiels to be a step up from the Klipsch RF7s. The Thiels did not sound lean with the Thresholds to our ears, but this will be in the mix for the next year or so.

At some time I think we will roll through the Citation II and VRD monoblocs, both PP KT88 tube amps that should have the current and balls to drive the Thiels.  :popcorn:

Where is everyone? I mean, the crickets are chirping and we posted about an event over a month in advance, and.... it is a leper colony in Nepal. Isn’t anyone else coming?

Hi, Dave.  Just saw your note - I will try to attend on the 27th.  Let me know if you need any beer or man-food. 

Also. I am thinking of a special event at my place in mid-November.  I ordered a 50th Anniversary copy of 2001: A Space Odessey which is in 4K.  I am thinking of having the gang over for a screening followed by a listening session.  I will also have the Sony / Pass Amp up in the man-cave with whatever music anyone wants to listen to.
