Drove from Atlanta to spend Thanksgiving with my wifes' family,and was able to hook up with some polkies,,he,he,,or maybe I should say "How Carls' vinyl rig will change your life". Started out at Vintage Hi Fi of Pittsburgh,,yep,,the usual suspects,,tubes you say,,well lemme' tell you,,tubes are Mandatory in Pittsburgh,,as in Dynaco Monos' to keep you warm on these cold Pa. nights,,or maybe it was Carls Rogue,,or maybe the Audio Research Phono pre,,,yep,these fellas' "know the glow",and they know it all too well. Aftera two dollah and siddy cent ride,I was introduced to the most involving,organic and captivating vinyl rig that I have heard so far,,did a little mini A/B with a Modwright Sony 999ES(tubed of course) and Carls' heavywieght vinyl front end,, gimme' that vinyl rig and I'm set for life,,yep,,that good. Anyhow,,I wanted to take the time to thank Tom Huffman,Tom Beemers,and Carl Schwartz for their hospitality and making me feel like I just came home.Top shelf folks,top shelf gear,,,the rest is a Club Polk classified tweak,,seriously,,thank ya'll and your families,for making this Thanksgiving a very memorable one.I hope you had as much fun as I did.
Cannot upload pics this moment,,back with some if a dew.
