If you're interested in the "perfectly mixed album", give "Waiting For the Night" by Freddy Jones Band a spin. Such glorious dynamics, perfectly recorded instruments. Wonderful songs.

When you're done with that, throw in "Lay Down and Love It Live" by Sonia Dada in. What a great sounding live album. This just goes to show what you can do when your guitar player is the heir to the United Airlines fortune.

Sigh couldn't you have posted that BEFORE the Amazon order.

Good for him! I played violin and was 3rd seat in the DSM Youth Symphony myself...although back in the mid to late 80s.

Congrats to Wilco! That is pretty cool.

I'll definitely make some time on a Tuesday to hang out.

Hit a couple of used stores today (Rogue Planet and Jay’s CD/Hobby) and was happy with what I found:

Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Van Morrison - Tupelo Honey
Mellencamp - Scarecrow
Rufus with Chaka Khan - Rags To Rufus
Genesis - Duke
Genesis - Genesis
Chicago - V
Heart - Dreamboat Annie

Giving them a clean and spin tonight/tomorrow, can’t wait!

Been seeing a lot of posts in the Facebook Marketplace from Vinyl Cup Records:
https://www.facebook.com/vinylcup/?tn-str=k*F

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...2051240588253/

I want to head over there sometime in the near future and check them out. It's above Good Sons in Beaverdale.

So not vinyl but I have some fun listening ahead with today's Amazon order arriving:

- Alan Parson's Eye in the Sky Blu Ray, 24/96 2ch/5.1
- Inxs Kick 30th, 24/96 2ch/5.1
- Airbag Greatest Show on Earth and Disconnected, CD

Hopefully I will have time to sneak downstairs and give them a listen this weekend. Really looking forward to the 2 5.1 mixes. Especially Parson's as he has a real passion for multichannel.

I recently heard Jethro Tull Aqualung in 5.1, only one song but it was fun. Let us know what you think of these.

Unfortunately the weekend didn't give me much of a chance to do a lot of listening. So all I got to sample was The Eye in the Sky multichannel by Alan Parsons. Man, I wish we had more people like Parsons, Bill Guthrie and Andy Jackson out there mixing music. This mix is outstanding. It's everything you'd want. Clean, balanced and great dynamics. Nothing feels lacking. The sonic envelope is never gimmicky. It simply feels bigger. If you enjoy a good multichannel experience, this Blu Ray is a bargain.

In hindsight I probably should have played with INXS first. I imagine I probably won't come away as pleased with it. But hey, it will be a fun nostalgia trip no matter what.

It's been quiet in here recently, either everyone is busy or took up scrapbooking, lol. Stopped by Marv's over lunch today and got Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers - Southern Accents and Supertramp - Crime of the Century.

The Tom Petty reissues are from a couple of years ago, I bought the self titled album (sounds great) a while back which gives me confidence about Southern Accents. Chris Bellman did the mastering from the original master tapes, my experiences with his work are positive. If you're a big enough fan you can get a box set of studio albums (1976-1991) and another box set for (1994-2014). These individual pressings I'm mentioning are the same as what's in the box set, just wish they'd release Wildflowers individually but sadly it can only be had in the box set.

Supertramp I bought on a whim because the album is great, problem is I know nothing of this particular pressing which is the 40th Anniversary edition. Hope it's flat and sounds good, fingers crossed.

I have been quiet because I have been semi angry at my system.
I have been using a pair of VTL Compact 100 tube amps with my Silverlines and have been in absolute love with the sound.
Problem being, one of the original Sovtek power tubes decided its life had come to an end and it ended up sending a DC surge to one of my speakers.

At first, I thought that it cooked one of the tweeters as I was getting a very disconcerting "tearing" type of distortion from the right side speaker on high end passages (trumpets, female voices at high volume, etc).
And since the distortion followed the speaker, I knew it wasn't the amp or the pre that was the source of the distortion.
So I did a bunch of research and ended up swapping both tweeters out with a pair of Fountek ribbon tweeters.

Did a bunch of lower volume listening and a few nights ago went to higher volume...distortion is still there in the right speaker and definitely coming from the tweeter and not the mid.
So now I need to trace the crossover to find which of the capacitors is the tweeter circuit and check the specs on it to see if it took the brunt of the DC surge.

Of course, now I have some nice dome tweeters and some nice ribbons that work with the crossover so there is that...I guess.

But I want to find the cause of the problem before I inadvertently damage something terminally.

I keep confusing my intentions with my abilities.

Oh man, that sucks! I didn't even know that could happen, good luck getting it sorted out. If it were to happen to anyone here I feel you'd be the one with the knowledge/ability to fix it on their own, so there's that.

Ugh my silence has been that I've been trying to resurrect my in-laws Win10 install. I've got them new parts so the machine is working I just can't get the old install to boot on anything (it's from an old AMD FX build). Normally I would just reinstall Windows but they have a ton of ancient software that I doubt they can find discs and keys for easily. So I've been dinking around with it and not listening to all that new music mocking me on the end table

This post made me laugh out loud because I can relate to recently doing things for others that ends up being a huge time suck.....patience young Padawan!

Oh I know. The bad part is that I know reinstalling will take infinitely more time with getting things back to where they were than trying to track down a board it can boot with to get the drivers switched over.

All good. I have a new capacitance meter on the way as my old one has seemed to have gone AWOL.
I am fairly certain that the 2.5mf cap in the tweeter circuit on this particular speaker is well out of spec. When I do a "dirty" test of it using a regular DMM, it drops way faster than the other side's same capacitor does which indicates that some of the internal "film" has been fused ultimately changing its overall capacitance.

So I have also ordered new 2.5mf Sonicap Gen Is for the tweeter circuit caps and decided to be proactive with the mid-range circuit and grabbed 4 6.8mf ClarityCap PXs for those.

These are the same values as stock but instead of going back to the stock Solen caps (which I tend to use on my DIY speakers and other crossover rebuilds), I decided to go with the Sonicaps as they have a great reputation for a nice smooth transparent sound and the ClarityCaps as they are a nice reliable workhorse capacitor.

Visual inspection of the inductors shows no physical damage or delamination which would indicate thermal damage. But I am not going to invest in a DCR meter to check them. Those 1.0mh and 1.8mh inductors are dirt cheap anyway if they need to be replaced.

Alan Yun (the man behind Silverline Audio) subscribes to the old adage of KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) of crossover design and uses first order slopes on his crossovers so even in a 3 way crossover, you only end up with 2 inductors and 2 capacitors (the 2 6.8mf caps on the mid-range circuit are paralleled for a 13.6mf "single" capacitor).

Everyone must have problems at the same time. My file server died after a power failure at my home, so ordered a synology nas 1618+ to replace it and have been benching and trying to decide between iscsi or just file share, ive got a 10gbe card for it. been copying data from my old usb 2 drobo to it, also ordered a new used iscsi drobo so i can retire the usb 2 drobo. copying 12tb of data over usb2 sucks, lets play the waiting game for a few days! Meanwhile i can't do much.

Sucks

At least I finally made progress on my issue. BOOTREC and some file copying appears to have brought it back.

As far as the Synology goes, I doubt with 7200RPM SATA disks iSCSI targets will make much difference. I'd make a file share and call it a day.

I have been shopping used Dell MD1200 and SC200 Powervaults in 12 drive variants to expand my storage. I am down to 3.5TB free on my last array and since I started ripping 4K disks, storage seems to be going faster.
NewEgg had 4tb HGST Deskstar NAS drives for $100ea if you bought 4...so yeah...

The one cap measured well outside of its 5% rating so the capacitor order was a good move.

I have my Silverlines torn down waiting for parts (going to clean up the crossover layout/mounting) and have the Usher V601s in their place for now. Still sound good but the Silverlines just do all the things so much better.

I keep confusing my intentions with my abilities.

Haven't purchased yet but leaning towards the MD1200 as it can be daisy-chained with the stock cards to more MD1200s without the need for additional RAID controllers. Would be a great expansion option considering the sheer amount of media I have.
Now I just need flippin' gigabit upload speeds so I can back all this up to the cloud!

I keep confusing my intentions with my abilities.

My Macs are doing just fine.

I stopped by Rogue Planet on Tuesday while Wilco was in rehearsal. Really nice selection in there, for the most part priced pretty decently. Predominantly first edition pressings. I picked up a copy of the 2nd Traveling Wilburys album (talked him down $10 from the sticker price), and about a dozen items from the $1 bins. For those of you like me, who like the $1 bins, they have the best in town.

I was so proud of my self control when I left Rogue Planet. Then I realized I still had 45 minutes to kill, and stopped in Solar Loan and bought a gold top Les Paul.

So much for my frugal trip.

But she's a beaut. And it was priced a few hundred below current Reverb.com prices.

I love my iPhone, but it will never replace my turntable. I've never seen Titanic OR XXXXXXXXX. Alexa is a stripper name.

Glad you liked Rogue Planet, easily my favorite shop in town. Congrats on the new toy! How about some pics?
