It's sorta audio related as I'll be using it to peruse CAM. My wife gave me a new ACER laptop today because the iPad I use is getting old and cranky like me and the fancy iMac I have isn't " lap friendly " for when I'm watching TV and playing on the NET. Now all I have to do is get all the normal stuff loaded and figure out Windows 10.

I got myself Raidhos two days before Christmas :D . And moved my stereo from a listening room to the living room.

Can't buy myself the time to listen to them. But since moving my listening to my living room, while the acoustics aren't the best, I can listen more often.

Not sure yet, just bought them out of curiosity. Once they come in I'll try both. If I lose the super smooth sound I have going with the magnesium Arcosia mids they won't be going in. Worst case scenario I'll get a 2-way bookshelf kit to put them in.

Ordered a pair of Spendor Classic 3/5 for the bedroom. Also got some more coffee mugs from McIntosh - I use the boxes they come in for cds.


Those speakers are amazing. Nice choice. Might not get much sleep as they are very nice sounding and likely to draw you into the music.

I got LPs: Combustification By Medeski Martin & Woods (double LP set) and Back at the Chicken Shack by The Incredible Jimmy Smith. Both on Blue Note.

Nice. I run the Concept through the Dynaudio DM3/7. Very neutral and even sounding combo.

Wow! I run Yamaha too (the much cheaper 700). I dream of the 2100. Perhaps once junior is out of university :)
