Collective Soul - Rabbit
While not as good of a score as the steal I got on the vintage Yamaha, the $35 Marantz 5 disc SACD/DVD-A/CD/DVD changer sounds really good, and it is also in MINT CONDITION!!
Technically, it's not a true Marantz, as it was made by Philips... It is the same internally as a Yamaha (961 or something?) "rebadged" model, but has a very nice thick Marantz brushed aluminum pace plate, and a very good Marantz remote (I love their remotes!!)...
Anyhow, I've loaded up a few discs from a beautiful woman that I've been in love with since 1977, and easily in my "top 5" favorite female vocalists of all time, Miss Natalie Cole...
Leonard Cohen: Songs From A Room.
@plainoledave that is one of my all time favorites (The Cult - Love)
When that finishes this is queued up:
Truckin up to buffalo..grateful dead..7/4/89....dvd
Linda Ronstadt & The Nelson Riddle Orchestra
What's New (SHM CD)
Nouveau Flamenco by Ottmar Liebert on my "new" SDA SRS 2.3's, OMG I'm in heaven"
Friends, I can not express how thrilled I am to be so fortunate to have become the proud owner of the Yamaha CR-1040... It is only a couple of very minor, nearly impossible for the naked to see imperfections from being 100% mint... I'd bet that Yamaha wouldn't mind having it in their museum (if they have one?)...
The Yamaha didn't fit or look well on the VTI rack, so I decided it was worth obtaining a rack worthy of properly displaying it and my humble little stereo rig... I am also most likely going to be moving into a smaller studio apartment in June, and I rarely watch television, so my 50" Samsung plasma is now in the home of my brother's girlfriend... The funds from the sale of it paid for the new stand. It is made from real wood (in the USA)!! I will now use my 32" Samsung LED as my (only) tv... For what little I watch tv, it'll be more than adequate...
Anyhow, here's a couple of pics of my gear in the new stand:

I've loaded a couple more in the Marantz to finish up the night...

Thank you, I am extremely happy with the results... :cheesygrin:
Yes, I am still thinking about the business venture... I know it is A LOT of work, but I think I've got what it takes... We'll see what happens in the event I don't land a good job in the next couple of months... For now, I'm going to do some preliminary research on government and/or state assistance for starting a small business.........
