Hung up

Hey Guys and Gals ( if there are any on of you on this thread),

We all get hung up on our audio BS and seldom does family get mentioned. We bitch about our wives:" turn it down".
But, we don't speak much about it past that. Some of you talk about your children and I applaud that.

I want to mention the greatest parents a man could ever have.
My parents came out to visit us about 10years ago. My Father was intrigued that I had such a sound system. He wasn't questioning my judgement, he was just curious. So I played a few tracks of different music. So he went out to his motorhome and brought back a CD.

It was A CD of Lawrence Welk. I popped it into the CD player and turned it up to required listening levels. He was enthralled. He had never heard Lawrence Welk's orchestra like that before. A vun, and too, and a trea.

Anyways, this past Fathers Day was without a Father; He passed away last year at 89 years old.
Our audio systems really mean crap in the whole scheme of things.

Some old photos:

Circa 1946 with Big Jim the Belgian Draft horse.

The 2nd photo before he was drafted for the Korean War.

Thanks for the reminder to focus on the truly important things. It's good to enjoy our hobbies, but there are definitely things that matter more!

New Contour magnets are on the outside while the special forty magnets are in the inside

The woofers with the 75mm voice coil had the magnet inside the coil, the newer woofer found in the contour has the magnet outside the voice coil.

Just FYI, a friend of mine did compare both the NAD M32 and the Classe Sigma 2200i (On B&W, not Dynaudio).
He finally bought the Classe.
More features and much better sounding did he say.
My 2 cents.

Thanks for sharing…my Dad wasn’t so much into the equipment but knew what he liked…always hogged my listening seat when he came to visit.…
But music was always playing in our household (probably where I get my passion from)….Calypso was all the rave in 50s and I still have a lots of fond memories of Harry Belafonte floating around in my head… lol….

Here he is in 1994 as a decorated Canadian War Veteran at the 50th D-Day Anniversary in Normandy.

We do miss them...... God Bless…..

Not really relevant here considering the completely different sounding speakers but I would hope it sounds better considering it costs $1,500 more.

Thanks Rob,

My father would never talk about the Korean War.
When I went to my Father's funeral, my biggest surprise was a full honor guard of Korean War vets. At the burial, they did a full military 21 gun salute.
My father would never talk about Korea. I found out later that he was awarded medals of valor from both the US and the Koreans. I think his highest honor was from the Koreans thanking him and awarding him the recognition for his service.

Rob, our parents were of the "greatest generation"!

Even if they liked Harry Bellafonte and Lawrence Welk
