I'm on a pop acid jazz fusion kick this week:

ZMA'in with Tom Scott & the l.a. express

smokin' section

http://www.amazon.com/Smokin-Section-Tom-Scott/dp/B00000IFVN

...the whole disc is great...but tracks: 8, 9, 10 & 11 really round off this great disc!

I've tried 6922, 6DJ8, 7DJ8 and 6N23P and I keep coming back to 6N1P being the best tube for me.

I use these:

They take a few hundred hours or more to "burn in" but they're great one they get there.

Thanks Lon,  I'm going to get a notebook and start keeping notes...a lot to remember. Once the HR-1s are in place I'll start the more intense experimentation with Input tubes on the Torii, CSP3 and Taboo.  

Unfortunately, I now don't think I'll get my speakers until at least the end of March at the earliest. Four pairs of speakers have had materials pulled on the build sheet, some ordered as much as 3 and 4 months after mine. I'm starting to think all ERRs will be built before HR-1s.  So depending on how many new orders occur, I may never get mine....hehe.  Just kidding Bob.  Anyway, by the time they do arrive I should have most issues in my system resolved.  Mark.

Mark, why not call or email Bob and get the skinny? It may be that they do batches of speakers or they may suddenly pull parts for three HR-1s, I just don't know how they do it. I have learned patience is a virtue in these matters. But my whole working life taught me two undeniable facts. One is "He may be crazy, but he outranks you." The other is "The squeaky wheel gets the grease." And long waits are more bearable for me if I understand why and the process.

I'm not going to bother Bob.  I assume the ERRs are much easier to build and there was one pair ordered a month prior to mine that I knew would be built first. My pair was ordered 9/19 and there is another pair of HR-1s ordered 10/21.  If after the current batch of four speaker pairs are finished and no HR-1 materials are pulled,  I may call.  It may be that they are waiting on drivers or tweeters...who knows. What is the saying?..."a watched pot never boils".  I probably shouldn't look at the build sheet anymore.

Here's what I'm listening to as I work...

Okay, I'm like that a lot too, I just waited and waited on mine.

Love that Gilberto material (don't have it in that version, have it on a Capitol/Pacific Jazz cd). Seminal stuff, in some important ways the very birth of Bossa Nova.

Right now

I gave this to my parents when I finally had the complete Charlie Christian on Masters of Jazz cds, nine of them. They like this, but then my Dad used to play clarinet, he sure knows Benny Goodman. I actually met Benny in '74 when he gave a talk at the University of Chicago.

Also met William Burroughs and had a conversation with Allen Ginsberg that year there. Wow. That was a trip.

I've moved to the Listening Cave and have chosen this CD.  I don't think I've ever heard it before.  I think it's also in the Mosaic Box I've never listened to...

It's nice if a bit Pop...

That Sarah is good and yes the Helen is awesome. I have everything of hers I've ever seen except a few Japanese only releases from the 'sixties.

Actually I'd listened to that Brubeck CD and then started it again because I was too absorbed in getting my next Dusty Groove buy set up...still looking.

But this one is playing now...

Lon,  I think I'll stay away from that site...for now.  I do more than enough damage with ebay, the Amazons, HPB&R and Dusty Groove.  Mark.

This next then I've got to get some dinner and watch Olympics...
