How I spent my time at home


I’m in New York and do not work in an industry defined as essential so I’m working from home. This sound system of mine is seriously interfering with my ability to get work done at home. Too distracting. In any event, I’m listening a lot now, which isn’t a bad thing. 
Taken the time as well to fiddle with things-

1- made sure my equipment racks were level, particularly the one that has my turntable on it 

2- rearranged gear/ pretty much just because

3- surprised- I found almost all the locking nuts on the spiked feet of my stands were loose so all got tightened

4- checked VTF (no gremlins came in over time to mess up my VTF)

5- fiddled with usb output Settings on my MacBook Pro 

6- tried to straighten out the mess of wiring behind my gear. No success- still a mess, just a different mess

7- discovered a dial bulb is out on an old Marantz tuner so I need to find a bulb- GE #55; do I go original style, LED, do I replace the burned out one or as long as I’m in there, all of them? Decisions! Turns out I have a bunch of GE #47’s at home, but no spare #55’s. 

I am open to suggestions for more stuff to tinker with

Oh, and falling, again, for Pattie Boyd.
Nonoise, I drove past an auto parts store today coming home from the supermarket. Turns out a #55 bulb is commonly stocked in auto parts stores. Bought a 2 pack. The tuner has 4 dial bulbs. 2 are easy to get to and 2 not so easy. The stereo indicator light is a bitch as that’s in a tight spot and it’s soldered in place. I had to replace that once, So, I took out the bad bulb and the other one that had easy access, replaced those 2, put the one good bulb I took out and put it with my spares, closed up the tuna and we are back in business. 
Still- I’ll check out the link 
I checked the level on my TT's then dusted and cleaned the covers.  While dusting, I snapped the cantilever off my  AT-33PTG/II, yeah that hurt!  The replacement 33 arrived Tuesday and I'm about 20 Lp's into the break-in process.  LP Gear is not immune the craziness of the Pandemic.  I ordered a new  AT-33PTG/II and received at tracking number, the day before the scheduled delivery the shipment was canceled.  LP Gear replied to my WTF email by telling me they were out of stock and were arranging a "Drop Shipment" from Japan.  I asked why I was not told they were out of stock before I paid.  They said sorry and I said Cancel The Order.  Lack of communications cost them a sale.  Funny, I had communications issues with LP Gear maybe 10 years ago and stopped using them.  The Needle Dr retired and I started to use the again. 

Rearranged my gear again- suspiciously similar to my previous set up. 

I spent two hours yesterday better rerouting cables in my main setup so that as much as possible all speaker and interconnect cables were as distantly spaced as possible from all power cords.  My wife thinks I'm frikkin' crazy....
