I'd like to host a casual listening session. I'll introduce my system, play some comparisons of different pressings/masterings/media, and we can let it rip open some from there.
My system is a straight-ahead stereo with a 20-bit CD player and vintage LP-12 'table as front end sources. I have about[masked] CD's and an equal amount of vinyl, with a good amount of audiophile stuff. Musical tastes run the gamut and blur lines, but think classical to jazz, rock, bluegrass, with some world music thrown into the mix (ever hear a santoor or a sarod or hindustani vocal?).
There are two sets of speakers in different areas of my house. The main pair reside with the “rig”. The second set are a much beloved pair of vintage EPI 100's that still hold up. We'll utilize both areas for up to 12 people and trade off seats as we need to.
We can play around with placement of the EPI's to see what we can get out of them. If we get really ambitious at some point, we can move the speakers together for some extra oomph.
Please come and enjoy plant-based snacks, liquid refreshments, and of course the music! Stay for some or all of the afternoon. No foolin'.
