    Default simple stuff

    I'm just chilling here playing Miles Davis. You know, if my musical taste
    was strictly jazz, I can think of no better setup than tubes with a pair
    of quality 2 way bookshelf speakers. I've seen and heard this setup
    in a lot of better audio demo rooms, and it just sounds so right with
    jazz. The floorstanders seem to lose the sound purity somehow.
    I have been thinking about a pair of Rega R3's, but this makes me
    reconsider that in a big way.

    The simple factor is the two way speakers. A good TT as the source
    would be even better. It's days like this I feel like chucking all the
    high-tech crap and getting back to basics. There was a bunch of my
    wife's friends the other day that were amazed that I still listen to music
    album by album instead of setting up playlists. The IPOD is the spawn of
    Satan. Of course, most would consider the lossless flac to be pure evil
    too. Do you think the Mrs. would divorce me if I went back to the wall
    of vinyl?

    I'm too young to even know how to begin spinning vinyl. Maybe once I'm outta law school and in the work force, I'll pick up that habit. I'm hoping digital will catch up to vinyl and I won't have to make that leap. Vinyl just seems like too much work.

    It's all a matter of trade offs, my friend.

    I've been scouring Goodwills looking for discarded treasures and cleaning vinyl for a couple of years now. I'm ready to try the PC thing myself.

    Something to be said for a simple system with a pair of monitors for sure. The simpler the system, the less there is to get in the way of the music, IMO.

    I went down to check out a traded in set of Rega r3's.
    Small demo stand, 50 wpc Rega integrated, Rega TT, Rega Apolloa CDP,
    and the R3's. I should of brought a camera. Small, neat, good sounding.
    Rosenut is a nice finish. Very high WAF. The R3's can sit 8 inches off the wall and sound good.
