    30 years ago today, the wall came down in Berlin. It was joyous occasion for the people of Germany and many of us around the world. In celebration of that event, there was a special concert in Berlin. Leonard Bernstein conducted an orchestra and chorus with members from East and West Germany and around the world. For the occasion, he actually took the word "Joy" out of the Ode to Joy! What did he replace it with? "Freedom" of course! In German, that's "Freiheit" instead of "Freude" I've linked right to the chorus (1:13:22), but the intro has some pretty interesting info as well.

    The wife and I have been looking at "new" houses lately. I think we are going to be renting a house well we have repairs and upgrades done on our house to get it ready for sale. I figure, the less stuff I have to move multiple times, the better. Plus any additional capital I can build up to go with our sale to put as a down payment on the new house, will be a bonus. So, I'm actually going to let go of, what has been my favorite system that I've ever owned. That is my Carver fest 275 tube amp. My 10 Octave preamp, and my Crites Cornscala speakers. The Carver fest 275 performs perfectly, with absolutely no issues at all. I did change the stock 120's out for a quad of vintage RCA 6550's which was a beautiful upgrade (IMHO). The 12 ax 7 has been replaced with Telefunken. When changing in and out the 12AT7 tubes, I never noticed any difference, so I left those with the stock JJ Tesla. $1250 plus shipping. I've done a review on the 10 Octave LP-1 preamp here. It's been my favorite to date. I was easily able to give up my Audio Research LS 5 preamp when I got this one, and I've never regretted the decision. There are other reviews available wood stop on this one. This is a great opportunity for anyone that missed out on the introductory deal when they first released this preamp. $750 plus shipping. Crites Cornscala Type B. these are the latest design with choose the JBL mid-range horn driver. I have personally done no upgrades to these, but they come with the Crites crossovers, the Crites Tweeter and cast woofer that Crites prefers. These have been stained in early American finish. $1400. I'm not really willing to ship these, but would be willing to drive a portion of the way to meet someone if they were interested in purchasing.

    Once Mark gets the parts in, I think we should do the drawing. The winner can then get in touch with Mark for any additions.

    This is a spectacular, karma offering. Kudos to you both! I'm actually trimming down my system as we speak, so I certainly have no need for anything else. Good luck to all of those that are in!

    Got it! Lots of shows have had this as a premise IE: Spocks Brain for one and as I have been watching Man in a High Castle I have been wondering if it might be a take on this concept also?

    I have a M-1.0t and a M1.5t that you could possibly try to see if they are a good fit. A subwoofer is a great idea (2 is even better)!

    Short of death, it is perhaps the combat injury most feared by servicemen who have deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan: a blast that robs him of his genitals. https://www.latimes.com/science/story/2019-11-06/penis-transplant-for-injured-veteran-successful

    Sad day today - My son and I traveled south to Provo for an errand, so as we always do, we stopped in to our favorite music store in SLC - FYE. This was the scene inside:-( I’ve been going to this store (under one name or another) for over 25 years. Back in the early ‘90s, they had the best Laserdisc collection around, which is what got me hooked on them (it was Media Play back then). The march towards online ordering claims another victim. on a bright note, I DID find a fresh shipment of Tool’s new album, Fear Inoculum...

    The hold up is my fault - I just need to do the opamps, but I had to order some Brown Dog adapters. I KNOW I have some here somewhere, but I’ll be damned if I can find them...:-( Pics to follow...

    Van Dyke Parks in a magazine interview: "it’s like Kinky Freidman once told me: You’ve got to find what you love and let it kill you. And I don’t think any of us should ever forget that." Getting to choose your way out is a gift. Just make sure it's worth the price. Sk1Bum's old biker philosophy 101.
