When the world went into lockdown last year, I started working 7-12s and I can just now see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have always loved music, my parent’s house was always filled with great music. I have always had a radio, boombox, stereo, Diskman, mp3 player, phone and earbuds etc. A coworker once told me "when I look at you I can see the music playing in your head" frankly one of the nicer things anyone ever said to me. Starting last December, I put together a Modest system Elac B6.2, PS Audio Sprout 100, Rega Planar 2, an old Infinity sub with a new Dayton 100w plate amp, and a Sony 5 disk DVD player. Started buying LPs for the first time, and it sounds pretty good (you have to push the Elacs to wake them up) but sounds good. Then upgraded the Carbon to a Nagaoka MP 110, Then added a Mani and tweaked with it, sounds better. Going to buy a Schiit Freya +, and Modius to Feed the sprout (then plan on replacing it with a Vidar) and intend to replace the Elacs with Martin Logan ESLs (and toss another Vidar in if needed) it should sound very nice at that point. but this meandering tale is to say that with all the craziness, sickness, deaths of people I know (I never dreamed I would be so surrounded by this damn disease) Music is one of the main physical thing I can do to de stress whether it is with a phone and buds, Listening to Diana Krall, spin on the TT, or just having a thumb drive playing in the car while my wife and I have a picnic watching the water go by. Music is sanity. Music is life.
