    Greetings everyone! I had the privilege to meet Myles at RMAF last year. We spent some time listening to his LP's in Vinnie Rossi's room. Vinnie's new LIO and amp paired beautifully with the new Harbeth 40.2's. I have been enjoying audio for 40 years. I sold it back in the early 80's and now I write about it. I generally love tubes and occasionally take a break to go Solid state when I want a change of pace. I never left vinyl so it is nice to see its resurgence. I also really enjoy headphones and personal audio due to a lot of travel for work. If it sounds good then I am not concerned about specs. Great numbers and poor sound are not interesting to me.
    VPI Prime Signature with Ortofon Cadenza Bronze, Simaudio Moon 610LP Phono Pre, PS Audio: DirectStream Memory Player, Directstream DSD DAC, BHK Pre, BHK 300 Mono's, Vandersteen Quatro CT's, Roon, AudioQuest Niagara 5000, Thunder Power cables, CastleRock speaker cables, MacKenzie interconnects and Diamond USB.

    Glad you found us! Despite the room, that system managed to sound darn good!

      The joys of hotel show conditions! I need to hear those 40.2's in a better environment.
