1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    In the context of my preferred amplifier (30W class A), I would keep the Yamaha NS-1000Ms. But I have a few more amplifier choices, so I keep three of my DIYs designs, and put them on rotation from time to time.

    Did anyone here get to see the Grateful Dead? Curious to know if their monster PA was just brute-force/volume, or whether they actually sounded any good? Their music is pretty subtle in many ways, so I’ve always been curious how they presented it.

    I saw the Dead in ‘85 at the Ventura (CA) county fairgrounds. But, it was the first and penultimate time I took acid, so I remember the drug more than the show, which was excellent when i was capable of experiencing it.

    I attended about 75 shows from 1976 through 1981. A few outdoors, but mostly indoors at theaters and auditoriums. The Dead cared a lot about sound quality, so especially in the better venues, they sounded great. Missed the wall of sound though. It predated me by a couple of years.

    My current fave is the Stirling LS3/5a V2, closely followed by Focal Aria 905, then probably Harbeth SLH5+

    I think in the future I'll be investigating further down the BBC sound rabbit hole, with its many dark tunnels and side chambers.
