Mini audio fest in Cincinnati Ohio
07/02/17 at 15:40:54
 


Several Caintuck Audio customers (who have also become friends) got together yesterday for an informal audio fest.

Paul (from Cincinnati) hosted the event and the other attendees were Roger (Louisville, KY), Matt (Alexandria, KY), my buddy Rob (Columbus, OH) and me.

We had an absolute blast .....

Paul has a very nice listening room in an older home with high ceilings and the sound was really, really good.
Included in Paul's audio system are Decware Rachel and Decware Torii amplifiers which both sound superb driving the Betsy baffles.

For a fact, not too many folks will be powering Betsy baffles with a Torii amp, but the results are amazing ..... with a lot of "meat on the bones" tonally and Paul's Betsy baffles sure didn't sound like a pair of 450.00 loudspeakers .....

One of the best things about gatherings like this is sharing new music.
Our little group has a wide variety of musical tastes and we are in a wide variety of age groups and backgrounds ..... so each time we get together it "broadens our musical horizons".

Some of the music we listened to (and all highly recommended) .....

Colter Wall
Colter Wall

Dominic Miller
Silent Light

Yo Yo Ma / Chris Thile / Edgar Meyer
Bach Trios

Richard Stoltzman
The Essential Clarinet

Patsy Cline
12 Greatest Hits on Decca

Dave Alvin & Phil Alvin
Common Ground

After the get together ended, I went home and ordered all of those CDs.

We have plans to get together again in September at Matt's home and that should get us revved up for the Decware Zen Fest 2017 in October .....

Happy listening,
Randy

Man ..... I wish you did too .....

Those of us in this hobby seem to be pretty spread out geographically.
We had to include more than 200 miles of the Midwest just to get 5 guys together for this event .....

If you ever happen to find yourself in the Cincinnati, OH / northern Kentucky area, you have a standing invitation to visit.

The red carpet will be rolled out .....

Best wishes,
Randy

Thanks for the invite, Randy, I really appreciate it. And you never know, I grew up outside St. Louis, and my folks still live there, so...

Happy 4th, Randy!!
