  • Audionirvana Second Anniversary Contest Award Winners!

    Join with me in congratulating the winners of Audionirvana’s second anniversary celebration! All the contests but one were hard fought and winners weren’t ultimately decided until the very end. So thanks to everyone who cast a vote!

    In the “Most Helpful” category: This was the closest race here with Ki Choi and Joe Pittman finishing in a dead heat. (Is there something about living in Seattle here as we had three contest winners from the state of Washington?) Both Ki and Joe have shared their vast knowledge and expertise and gone the extra yard for people on and off the board! Just ask Bruce!

    Next, the “Most Musically Knowledgable” category: A hotly contested event with a lot of competition here with Bill Hart pulling away from Jazdoc and Astrotoy at the end to clinch this category. As many know, Bill has his own excellent website that deals with music, interviews with musicians, collecting records, taking care of your records, etc.! Check it out!

    “What Are You Listening To Tonight” was Audionirvana’s most popular thread with many, many members sharing their favorite LPs, tapes, CDs, files, etc. Quite a few members received votes and at the end it was Jazdoc pulling away from Rockitman to clinch the prize!

    Last but not least, the title of “Most Passionate aka Ultimate Audiophile”: Winning with the greatest number of votes of any of the four categories was Mike Lavigne. Now the only question is there any record (or tape) that Mike wants and doesn’t have?

    Gift certificate numbers for Elusive Disc will be PM’d separately to all winners!

      Whoa. The only thing I ever won was a bag of fertilizer when I was still in high school! This is cool, but I couldn't do this alone--

      lasercd ​​​​​​-Ken has been a real ear opener for me on prog rock and obscurities.jazdoc is always coming up with new records, new bands, and
      astrotoy Larry is by far more knowledgeable of things classical. There is a long list of people I want to thank, but at the top is Myles, for putting this site together.

      and Marlon Brando.
