I am the most lucky guy

Recently I upgraded Dac from EmmLab Dac2 to Chord Dave and Mscaler.

Chord Dave and Mscaler give very transparent and deep and wide 3D holographic soundstage.

But it could sound thin.

After trying several digital cables, I could tune the sound with enough fullness and nuanced details.

Recently I play musicals and operas very often enjoying excellent 3D soundstage.

I live in Pacific Northwest.

With windows open, I could live without air conditioning system here even during middle of summer.

But I do not want to play speaker loud with windows open not to disturb my neighbors.

Thus I had also got Stax 009S headphone and KGSSHV Carbon headphone amplifier.

It sound marvelous using Dave and Mscaler as source.

I am listening to " Are you lonesome tonight" by Elvis.

His voice tone is just spot on.

Thus without being bothered by heat or noise from air conditioning system, I can enjoy the music.

So I am the most lucky audiophile.

I am going to have a break from changing major audio components for next 2 years and just enjoy music.

Sometimes I wonder how he really sounded.

How close is what I hear to what it really was? I like it, but I have no idea if it is real. He died way before I could ever do a comparison.
No you are not!  I just beat head and neck cancer the first time out.  If you know anything about that particular cancer, then you know how lucky I am.  Happy listening, and may you not be lonesome tonight.  LOL

You are indeed lucky guy having recovered from cancer.

But it is advisable to take care of it since it could come back.

Enjoy the music with your re born life.
It is going to be a summer here in Pacific Northwest.

High will be around 84 degree this week which is still not bad with low humidity.

Now I start harvesting plums and blueberies.

At the end of August, I will have also lot of apples and blackberryies.

I do need to buy fruit until the end of year.

I store some excess plums in the freezer to eat all the year around.

About 3 years ago I planted 4 grape trees, but only two survive.

One of grape tree has 3 bunches of grape.

I will not be able to make wine out of it, but I am still curious how it will taste.

It is nice to hear that the temperature on eastern side cool down recently.

My pregnant daughter is staying in Toronto, Canada.

She complained that it had been too hot last week,

I am going to be grandfather next February.

It is a paradise in Pacific Northwest during summer.

But it rains too much during winter here although it is not that cold.

Some people move to Arizona or Nevada during winter time using RV.
