    Re: Hello from Naples, FL

    Nice gear...gratz! I have some family in the area, out near Marco Island. Grand Parents moved there in the '60s and some aunts and uncles followed. I have not been there since 1975 but been over...

    Re: Saw these guys last night

    Yup... that is why sometimes you see it referred to as Chicago and sometimes Chicago II. The cover just says Chicago (listening to MFSL now) but in Roon they list it as Chicago II. Roon describes...

    Re: Saw these guys last night

    Chicago (or Chicago II) is a great album!
  4. Re: These guys played in San Luis Obispo the other night

    That is true :).

    Also, there are very few places that cost more to live in than here, but the Bay area certainly is one. You have to make a ton to think about buying a house up there. Our son...
  5. Re: These guys played in San Luis Obispo the other night

    I assume Cal Poly :)... Many people come here for Cal Poly and never leave. When I retire from SLO County we will probably move. Too darn expensive here :D, but it is also one of the most...
  6. These guys played in San Luis Obispo the other night

    My wife and I enjoyed a very fun show... not my normal but got to say, these guys are great!

    Re: Thorens

    Yea, I was kind of shocked. Why would they want to do this even. It is not like this design could ever make a truly worthy $23,000 turntable in my view. There are 301's available, recently...
  8. Re: What was your first high-end component ever?

    My first "High End" piece was a Nakamichi deck, and then soon followed by KEF 104aB speakers, back in the '70s.

    Re: Thorens

    The Garrard 301 was big in the restoration market, but that is coming to an end. SME bought all rights to the 301 and are re-introducing it, in as original build as is possible, with an SME arm. ...

    Re: Why no turntable?

    I actually spoke with Ben, one of the founders of U-Turn. He said they have been trying the Ortofon 2M Bronze and believe it works very well with the U-Turn tables. He also stated that he believes...

    Re: ELAC sub

    It seems to do what I am looking for in a sub. Adds some lower octave without bringing attention to itself. I really like having the controls accessible from my listening position. It is a very...

  13. Re: Running Roon Core on a Virtual Machine

    I guess it is a cool idea. Most companies, banks, the DoD that I worked for, the county I currently work for, etc. run VM. It allows them to stand up new servers without purchasing new hardware. ...

    Re: MSB Discrete Ordered...Now What?

    Roon Nucleus is a music server doing the same function as a computer (dedicated music servers are in essence computers), lets just call them computing devices for this post.

    How this all works...

    Roon is the software that controls/plays your music files. It gives you all kinds of meta data and information. It organizes your digital music and sends the digital signal to the DAC that is your...

    Re: roon core options

    Exactly, I get music to listen to it, not simply collecting it. So if someone has 20 TB of music they would have to listen 24 hours a day and it would still take 3-4 years to listen to all only...
