It's always interesting hearing members choices and opinions of equipment and set-ups on here. So many times, I have never even heard of equipment that is mentioned, only to find out that this person in living in another county from mine. I thought it would be interesting to see where we all live
@flatblackround. He was fantastic but lacking much material played his hit 3 times.... i lived at Agora saw many many great shows there, drinks at bar with James Honeyman Scott of Pretenders RIP Dixie Dregs George Thorogood Tommy Tutone Wendy O Williams.....
I spent lots of evenings in my youth at that Agora in Columbus Ohio. Local bands the Muff Brothers and Godz were regulars that packed the place back in the 70’s. Now it’s called Newport Music Hall and the last time I was there was to watch my sons band play.
Another ex-New Yorker, actually Long Island. For the past thirty years, living near what used to be sunny, Roanoke, Virginia. Before that ten years thirty miles north of Seattle, just like Freediver above. This past year Roanoke’s seen more rain than the rainy season Han_n is currently experiencing in Surabaya, Indonesia, and Seattle always has going, combined. Raining right now again. Moved from Seattle to escape that... Oh well, at least it’s not snowing.
La Crescenta, CA — just north of Pasadena (hi jameswei) and LA (hi Erik, and thanks for the tip on Higher Note — I’ll check them out). @David Pritchard — where would I find more info on the audio open houses you mentioned?
I'm not too far from you, nitrobob: I've settled in the Pittsburgh, PA area. Although I had lived in multiple states from coast to coast
My son just started a new job in Pittsburgh; he moved there from the Jersey Shore. How do you like Pittsburgh? I get the sense it has done an awesome job of reinventing itself after the winding down of the steel industry.
South Africa where we had a heatwave most of the summer so far. Lived in the USA from 1998-2008. The exchange rate is not in our favor so hifi is a luxury. Just bought a Musical Fidelity MX dac and will have to cut back on every thing to survive. LOL The sound difference is significant and the redbook cds sound like top class SACDs. Using a Oppo DV-981HD and a Sony DVP-S9000ES. I so wish that there was a way to push the SACD's through this DAC.
I was with some audio enthusiast friends last night and we were talking about some of the companies here in Washington - Modwright, Parks Audio, Carver, Shunyata, Blue Jeans Cable... I'm sure there are more I'm not thinking of.
Las Cruces, New Mexico. Moved here from Seattle to retire. Sorry to say the nearest HI-FI shops are in El Paso, TX ( 45 Minute trip) and Albuquerque, NM ( 3 Hour trip). I miss Seattle where I could visit shops during my lunch break.
Lafayette Louisiana, the heart of "Cajun Country". Not so great for access to gear, but man what a great place to be for music. You can't throw a stick in this town without hitting a Grammy winner, plus NOLA is just 2 hours away. Oh and we have a fantastic local record shop.
