    Randy-

    Nice lookin' system.
    All that tube rolling has me a bit squeamish on the Woo and lean to the Mc. But... your efforts are certainly inspiring!
    On another note, working on DIY 4 cheap headphone cables. Those mini xlr's are a real bear to solder!

    Enjoy Your Sounds,

    You certainly do not have to tube roll. The Woo sounded wonderful out of the box. Tube rolling is just another fun thing to do which not all amps appreciate. The WA22 has a reputation for being able to appreciate the sound differences in different tubes. I have 2-3 sets of different tubes for when I feel like a change of pace. I cannot tell you all the difference yet, but it is fun playing around with them.

    Re: New photos of Randy's system ...

    So we decided to rearrange some rooms. My wife wanted to get the loft back as a library, so I cleared out a spare room that has been becoming a place to dump crap in room. I moved my system in.. 12x12 is not bad, but got it done (I am f'n tired and sore). Here are some quick shots.

    Maggies can work surprisingly well in small rooms...acoustically. Visually tho..
    Maybe give them a try before ditching. Of course its whatever you prefer. Those should sound quite different

    Nice to have new digs Randy!
    Really like your record racks. Reminiscent of 60's and 70's shopping at the local shop or EJ Korvettes!
    Cool to see the Woo "Reigning in Glory" atop its own perch.

    Re: New photos of Randy's system ...

    I am getting used to the new room. It is different, some challenges but all in all some real nice advantages! Yea the Woo likes it's little perch but it does have to share it with the Abyss... no other place to put them.
    ________________________________

    I actually brought a small table near the Woo stand and the Abyss /headphone stand sits on it pretty well, so the Woo has its own perch now .

    I am getting used to it. I am starting to like it a lot. This has allowed my wife to put the library back the way she wants it (it came out very nice) and eliminated a room that was never used, now making it very functional! Was a pain to shift everything, moving the stuff that was in the room, getting rid of some stuff, re-organizing the master bedroom (another room that she is thrilled with how it came out).

    Along with all of this we now have a plan in place to introduce our new family member who should be ready to come home in a couple of weeks!


    Here is Marleigh:

    Here is her dad, Apollo:

    And Marleigh with her mom, Katarina:

    Welcome to the Bengal owners family. Marleigh will be constant, high energy entertainment. And talkative! Just make sure play with her a lot and have some high places for her to climb and sleep in. We have 2 x 78 inch condos for our tribe. And some smaller condos an scratching posts too. And Marleigh’s coat will take a while to attain it’s final color/glitter and luxuriousness!

    Hey Zeus... he is gorgeous. I assume he tries to keep the Rag Dolls busy .

    We are looking forward to Marleigh coming home... we are trying decide the best way to introduce her to the other two cats in our family . I had been wanting a Bengal. They are supposed to be great family additions, beautiful, energetic, fun, and very very intelligent... hey how could you not love a kitten that loves water, play fetch, and wants to be involved with everything going on around the house. So Cheryal decided to get me one for my birthday. We have been talking about her as if she was already part of our family ever since we heard she was born... but because of Covid we have not been able to visit her yet. We can pick her up in 2-3 weeks. We will settle on exact date soon.

    Sleeping in the box cracks me up. Our old timer has taken to sleeping in any box that we leave sitting around. Cheryal is afraid of throwing them away so she leaves his favorite in the office for him.

    By the way, back to the system. I cleaned up the headphone stand to keep cabling more orderly. The Euclid don't need to be there since they go to work with me every day .
