Man am I glad I got this box set. We're into the stereo albums now and the sound is just glorious. The performances are astonishingly good, the man was justly lauded as a master player.

My Mom isn't as big a fan of the music as Dad and I but is being a good sport. Dad's system is really shining right now--the California Audio Labs changer has really surprised me as being a way over the top bang for buck buy, detailed but not dry like many detailed players, very dynamic. The Torii Mk II has just the right amount of old school charm.

For months I have known I had the double CD 30th anniversary version of George Harrison's "All Things Must Pass" sitting sealed waiting to be played after 13, 14 years.  I remember fondly, listening to this many times on vinyl as a kid.  This morning was it's time.  Now CD #1 of 2.

Lon, just an update...my HR-1's have moved to "Finishing" and my Torii MK IV has been repaired and will soon be shipped. It had a blown Transformer.  I was a little shocked by the Bill but no one ever said this hobby was cheap...well, at least not me.  Everything will soon be in place with many hours of break in to look forward to.  Mark.

Listening to the 2 LP set. The CD also sounds excellent. Get it Raven!

You know me well, Lon. I've already got that one, but just haven't queued it up yet. I'm still playing with tapes. In fact, I found a collection of tapes that has studio/radio station "masters" of Pop and Rock tunes from the '50s through the '80s. I'm just trying to figure out how to dredge up the $2200 for the collection.  [smiley=10.gif]

Glad you have that one. . .since you seemed to have missed Valleys of Neptune I thought maybe you'd missed  that one too!

I would probably pay about 20 dollars for pop hits from the fifties and sixties! No matter how good it sounds, it's not my thing. I'm sure these tapes sound great, but I would drive myself nuts trying to find music I wanted to listen to in that format. . . I'm staying clear of R2R--I almost went there some years ago (I'm on record on this forum somewhere a few times way back that R2R can have the best fidelity. But my appetite for music is voracious and I have so much already. just going to stick to those formats.

Right now

Boy, this is a super group. . . and Heifetz is just astonishinly good all the time.

Surprisingly, lots of master tapes for classical. Jazz seems to get zipped up by collectors. Rock is just stupidly priced. I might have a wonderful choral master tape coming in soon, looking at $100 plus shipping from Canada.

I looked into it some years ago. Just not enough stuff for me that it woudln't be "listening for the great sound." I don't want to become one of those guys. Keeping my vinyl going (blows my mind how good it sounds sometimes, the ZP3 is perhaps Steve's crowning achievement) makes more sense as there is a hundred plus times more out there to buy at five bucks or so a pop.

Man, this Heifetz box set is really satisfying!
