First, since many of you have time now I thought it useful to have you speculate what type of meal this hoarder is planning for his lucky family.  I can’t for the life of me figure it out.

Second, I’d like to provide a picture of the product display everyone ran past in order to get to the water aisle in the grocery store.

Silly times indeed.

Be well,

John

.. and now I’m spending time in France, where alas I have no Lecson nor Gale, but a nice NAD C658, an amp, and a pair of KEF R7’s :-)

Aaah Pete, you have my full sympathy! Poor guy! No Lecson or Gale and "only" NAD and KEF!  Will you ever survive this ?  ;)))

It’s a harsh situation, indeed. And I’d actually have time now to find out why the AC1 was misbehaving. But it’s over in the USA, self-isolating like a good little preamp in a drawer…

But - stiff upper lip and all that!

(Actually, the KEFs sound pretty good, although the room is hard-surfaced and almost cubical, so Dirac (that’s really why the NAD is there) helps enormously)

Well Pete,  surprisingly so many people NOW find the time to do lots of things at home, they always wanted to do, but never did!  Unfortunately for the wrong reasons...we could have done just as well without a deadly virus, right ?

Hi All,

Still alive here in the UK! And working, we have furloughed some staff, some are working from home, then we have the test spaced out in the offices, production and warehousing. 
The cleaning company we use has stopped coming so I have taken on the task as a senior figure, so that’s every morning opening up
and cleaning before the workers arrive! Good for the soul! Hmmm

Anyway, no Gale equipment sadly, not managed to secure a turntable yet. However I have bought a couple of UK pieces, a Musical Fidelity KW750 power amp, now this thing is a big beast, comes with a separate power supply and delivers enough power to run a small concert! That’s not the point though, this thing sounds absolutely beautiful, a real gem once warmed up, it comes alive. I also bought the Musical Fidelity M6 Encore which is a preamp with storage and CD built in, useful if you want to rip CD’s to the hard drive. Also connects to your network to link up any accounts like Spotify, Qobuz, Tidal, etc. No phono preamp for turntables but a remote can be added of course. I know this won’t appeal to most here but the MF stuff does sound seriously good, any one else have their gear?

Cheers

Toby

The kW750 may be yet another example of the virtues of valves? I had a MF TriVista DAC for a while, used with their A3 CD player, and this used to sound pretty good. Both were replaced long ago with a Linn Akurate streamer, although I still use a valve preamp.

Hi Berris,
The KW750 power amp is transistor but appears very natural to listen to, it got some good reviews by well respected people when it came out but they were significant money, I bought my secondhand. 
I believe the matching preamp is hybrid valve/transistor though. I didn’t go for the preamp as it didn’t quite fit my needs. Musical Fidelity has been bought by an Austrian company but I believe the original owner Anthony Michaelson is still actively involved in it, he does seem to be the driving force in producing proper sounding hi-fi from budget gear through to hiend.

Yes, Lothar...some of us are just slow on the uptick. Busy cleaning up some of the100+ year old trees knocked down by recent storms. Had surgery and rest for all of Feb and building strength from March to now. Feeling good to be doing physical labor. Did a bit of listening to my Gales each week.

Alive and kicking here.  Listening to some new yet old music, trying to avoid the political rants on Facebook, and buying some acoustics kit online today.

All is well.  Hope it is with you as well.

John, I just noticed your signature includes an address in Oceanside. You were in Pasadena previously, if I remember correctly. Change of pace and scenery?

Yes.  We moved from San Marino (right next to Pasadena) to Oceanside a few years ago to be near my 89 year old father.

Now he can take care of us!

Hope all is well.

Sorry you're not fit YET for the coming Olympics....I have never been, no matter what age... Also sorry about the old trees, takes so long to get big, impressive trees, and they can be destroyed within seconds.
Well, we can't do much about it, can we?  Take care!
