      If memory serves me correct, SP held the show at the Waldorf more than once before moving to the Hilton. Remember the show was only in NY every other year.

    I should have also mentioned MOFI brought a test pressing of the self titled Dire Straits album and are waiting for delivery maybe tomorrow of the one step pressing of Marvin Gaye. And the mono UHQR Jimi Hendrix is sold out and only a few remain for the stereo version.

    On the tape front, the first of the second series of Acoustic Sounds reel to reel tape is slated to be the Sonny Boy Williamson Keeping it to Yourself.

        Made by Classic Audio Loudspeakers out of Brighton,Michigan.
        I think it is the T-1.5 Ref model (but it might their T-3.4) using field coil drivers, 16 Ohms
        They typically show with Atma-Sphere (that's a Novacron amp in the background).

        It sounded very good to me. Granted it was in an all-Technics system I had never heard any of, and a very expensive system at that, but it sounded excellent.

        Alma Music here in San Diego had a demo with the Technics rep a few weeks ago. I couldn’t make it but I have friends who attended and were very impressed. I believe the system other than the TT was made up of non Technics equipment.

        Thanks for the picture (2nd from bottom) of our beloved Seraphim Prime Myles.

        Sorry for my absence here the last few months.
