Michael Lavorgna of Twittering Machines visited our room:https://twitteringmachines.com/ny-audio-show-2018-the-rooms-part-1/
Vinnie Rossi’s room was one of my favorites because Vinnie plays real, interesting, music and he knows how to set up a room so it sounds better than good.Photo Credit: Michael Lavorgna of Twittering Machines
And it is true - Michael now has the L2 Signature Preamplifier and Monoblocks in his barn for review! I drove them over after the show. The best part of the trip was just setting them down in his rack, wiring them up, and then spending literally serveral hours listening to a wide variety of Michael's music collection (LPs, and streaming tracks galore). I did not want to leave because it was that
enjoyable listening and actually forgetting about the gear for a while. I did miss my family and had to drive > 4 hours home to MA from NJ, but I sure would have loved to stay in that barn into late hours with only moonlight creeping in from the windows. I swear there was some strange time warp in there because I think I arrived at noon and it felt like 5 hours flew by in an instant, and a bit of a gravity warp as well because you could feel a "pull" into all those tracks. I honestly have not experienced anything quite like it. As I always say, the room is >50% of what you are hearing, and in the case of his barn with driving Devore Fidelity Gibbon X speakers, it just presents music in such a live and exciting way that sort of puts you in a trance.
In his coverage, Michael mentioned the "Birdcage" LP by Sophia Pfister that we played in our NYAS room. You can view and listen to her work, here: https://www.sophiapfister.com/
And her videos, here: https://www.sophiapfister.com/vidoes/
Besides her own impressive song writing, there are two smokin' cover track videos for you to check out - Folsom Prison Blues and Beast of Burden.
You can order her new LP directly from her website. Grab a copy before they all sell out!Photo credit: Sophia Pfister / www.sophiapfister.com
