John Coltrane, Crescent. Using this album as a yardstick to see how the new speakers are doing. I know this album from LP, tape and cd days, very well, and I LOVE to listen to it.



What playing this cd showed me yesterday was that it was time for a new set of output tubes. Got better than eight months out of them, during which I more often than not ran the amp for days on end between turnoffs.

Today with a new set installed it sounds great. The HR-1s are really dishing out the great sound. I do have a buzz and rattle coming from one of the speakers however for the lowest notes of Garrison's bass playing. I ran into it as well on another cd. I thought perhaps it was a tube distortion but no. Keeping an ear on it.

The version of this album in my collection is a Japanese K2 reissue. I probably listen to this one the most often of all my cd versions.

Stumbled into another great album. Well recorded for this type of music.
The style is kinda hard for me to describe. Kind of a hip-hop, pop, folk, and soul.

I have been slow to take my TT in to the dealer for the distortion and hum problem.  To eliminate one more variable I hooked up another Phono Stage to rule out the ZP3.  Still have hum and distortion as before only the sound isn't near as pleasing as with the ZP3...go figure.

I've listened to several LPs this morning other than the one I listed above.  Now i'm giving this LP another go...It's growing on me.  Mark.

Well, enough headphone listening with an inferior Phono Stage.  It's time for the Torii and speakers.  Yesterday, in the mail, I got the four volumes of Ella's "Twelve Nights In Hollywood", the two CD set "Ella in Japan" and the Complete Duke Ellington Columbia Studio Albums Collection 1951-1958...all on CD.  So first in the Jolida CDP is Ella in Japan... S' Wonderful!  Mark.

Ah Madame Zzaj and her ten dollar bill! Love that album.

Right now
The 40th anniversary edition (soon I'll also have two Japanese versions: one mastered by RVG and the new Blu-Spec version which is supposd to be original mix, no eq or compression).



This album is like Jobim's "Kind of Blue" to my ears.
