    Default Meeting Across the River

    Tonight Hearingimpared (Joe), pearsall001 (Phil), and I had a small get together over in New Jersey. Phil was the generous host at tonights listening-fest. Joe and I crossed the Delaware from the badlands of Killadelphia to listen to the sweet sounds of Phils 2 Ch rig...and it was the most impressive rig.
    It only had two little bookshelfes. All I can say is Holy ****. They completly filled the room with the most smoothest sound and rock solid bass (see Joe's review). Did I say they were bookshelfs?? I'm very lucky to be a forum member and to meet such nice people. Thanks Phil and Joe.

    sweet... sounds like a great time..

    you know.. that's what i like about this hobby and this site.. Club Polk brings people together who would otherwise never meet online or in person.

    With the exception of a few bad apples over the years.. everyone on here I've met or chatted with via emails have been really great people. I too am looking forward to PF07 already.. so i can meet more of you's in person. :)

    Excellent. Phil had asked me to come up a little while back, but I was too busy at the time. I would love to hear this rig, and check out the sound treatments he has done.

    Yes,
    It was a great time at Phil's house. We listened to some great tunes and very nice gear.
    The Diana Krall cd (and DVD) were awesome and her vocals just melted in your mouth. Phil also played some Mapleshade recordings and they were even better. Joe brought over his JATPS cd that converted Phil's house into a jazz club.
    Everything in Phil's rig was perfectly set up from the speaker placement to the room treatments. The longer you listened more detail you discovered in the recordings. My system is like a toy compared to Phil's.

    YES,

    It was the live in Paris DVD. Phil played the CD on the 2 ch rig which was awesome. Then he fired up the HT and played the DVD and WOW...I was in the front row at the Diana Krall concert. I also broke my SVS cherry:D .

    Oh yea,
    I should have mentioned we were watching on a 50 inch Sony LCD. Awesome TV. I go home from Phils and my rig sounds like crap and now my TV looks like crap. I should have never went there.

    No need to go overboard here. From what you told me your house sounds like it's a mini studio. Your compliments are greatly appreciated though. You & Joe were the first to really critique my system. My local friends are happy with their Bose & are pretty much clueless when it comes to good sound. It really was a fun night & I'm happy you guys had a good time. Looks like I have to have Amulford over. The more the merrier I always say.

    I envy you guys that have friends with audio interest. I'm still searching, but for now it's a man show.

    Well once again Wednesday night was a real charmer. It is so nice to chew the fat and really sit down and listen to some quality music on a quality system. I'm so hard up for the sound of analog that I left my Timbre DAC at Phil's so he can keep it powered up (as recommended by the manufacturer) so that he can keep getting addicted to analog music. Maybe I can coerce him into buying a really high end turntable/tonearm/cartridge rig. . . what do you say Phil????

    Seriously Phil's 2 ch and HT system and room are really sweet. When I am there I, when I am not babbling, I have a grin ear to hearingimpared ear.

    Joe is a madman. He sat in every seat in the room including the rear of the room out of the seating area. Phil and I both need a good vinyl rig...

    What will a quality TT set up set me back. Joe, I already showed you my vinyl collection - all 12 of 'em. LOL!!! And half of them you said didn't look promising. I think I'll probably settly for my CD system. Don't forget I've got the AVA Ultra DAC coming. I'm anxious to hear what it'll do. If it's anything like your Timbre DAC it'll be a keeper.

    Phil, it would be around $5,000. Get rid of some of your HT junk LOL and use the money for a good analog rig!
