Turning it to 11 Mr Gravy!

This is how to enjoy music!






Of course, that is merely my own opinion.

But you have to admit, I have a point. I'm not the first person to try this out.

Very nice - dim the lights a little eh. Time for a little mind expansion

Are those Cerwin Vegas?

I do need to get more subtle lighting in there. Also a bigger area rug, and other treble absorbers, like drapes and some other stuff. The cats have destroyed the blinds anyway, but drapes are better acoustically in any case.

But, not a bad start.

Right now though, the Dark Side of the Moon beckons.

There is no Dark Side of the Moon really. As a matter of fact it's all dark.

The speakers are Mordaunt Short Carnival 8's. Not bad - I was going to go with Regas but these were easier on the wallet.

Cheap idea

A dimmer would work if you're using incandescent lighting. Use bulbs with heavy filaments (rough service or 130v) and a quality dimmer or you'll get a lot of noise off them.

We (my stoner friends and I) used to go out to the Pink Floyd laser light show at the Minneapolis Planetarium quite often - great memories!

I like your dimmer idea. I was thinking of one or two floor standing lamps, just so that when I am sitting in the chair, I don't have lights directly above or in front of me.

Mmmmmm Pink Floyd and laser lights.

That's the ticket!

Hope y'all are having a fine time. Take care with the travelling, and have a very happy thanksgiving.
That is too funny, that is one of the albums in my stack to be digitized

Bleating and Babbling we fell on his neck with a scream
Wave upon wave of demented avengers
marched cheerfully out of obscurity into the dream

I already digitized this one, and can share that if you like.

I'm not a vinyl enthusiast by any account - is there an appeal to having vinyl in your collection if you already posses the digital version?

This is pretty much my entire record collection . I know it's mostly shit. What do you expect, I think I was 11 the last time I bought one. Anyway if there is anything in this paltry collection you're interested in it's yours. Let me know.

Take solace in this - I own one vinyl record: Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet.

Um. Well there are 4 very good albums in there. I'll buy the whole collection off you though, if you don't want it.

The reason I keep both digital version and the records, is that I when I just want to listen to the music, I go and sit and listen to the record.

But it's really really difficult to balance the turntable on the motorbickle, so ipods really come into their own at that point.

In my defense CD's became pretty widely available when I was about 10. Records took a back seat. I know I had some more they are probably still at my parents house. I'll check it out after the tryptophan wears off tonight.

You'll buy nothing, consider them yours.
