Newbie here.....
« on: 26 Mar 2021, 01:16 am »
...and an intro. Retired recently so I have more time to go through my collection. Somewhat eclectic tastes as I listen to most all jazz (and fusion), forms of rock I grew up with (in the 60s and 70s), some rock from the 90s and beyond (the 80s were a black hole of music to me), lots and lots of psych/prog/space rock and Krautrock thrown in for good measure.  Posting in this circle since I like to read through what others interests are or what might align with mine.

Regards,
Jack

You're welcome to post in the Music Circle. Always looking for input as I have pretty much run out of ideas.

My taste is mostly Trance electronic, Hard Rock, pop, but looking for new music that I like.

Also there is a Jazz & Classical Circle if that is your taste.

    • Never go to a psychiatrist, adopt a straycat or dog. On the street they live only two years average.

On Fusion if you could find some Kraan CDs on Amazon I believe you will like.

Welcome Jack!

I'm 64, retired for 6 years, 40+ years into audio.  I value room impacts (have a properly shaped, well insulated room, with 10 GIK 244 absorption panels, 3 large bookcases to act as casual diffusion panels, and 3 carefully placed subwoofers.  I use a mid-field setup and greatly prefer single driver loudspeakers or active monitors.  Listen at moderate levels usually to mostly small ensemble jazz and classical in mid-Michigan.

Yes carefully thought out and placed rooms are the building block of a system to be sure. I have one treated room w/ three subs, another with Mc gear I bought new in'78 that are driving Maggie MMGs and two subs and a third with office set up that's a retro-mod Yamaha silver face system including a Yamaha tt I bought new back then.

I'll get around to posting pics one day..........

Once again thanks for responding to this intro -
