    I don’t listen to a lot of music but do entertain as a musician.

    Don’t own a Hi-Fi system as such, just a surround system for the TV / DVD etc.

    What rocks my boat is my 500W Trace Elliot 2×10, 1×15 bass rig. 1Kw Hartke, 2x 4×10 cabs for the the big stuff and a 300W Ampeg for the dedicated rehearsal room.

    1964 P bass, 73 J bass, 93 Warwick Thumb, 2015 Rickenbacker 2003

    The surround system is Sonos but I do suffer from tinnitus and half deaf due to my work and music, so it don’t really matter ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy days ๐Ÿ™‚

    The last tinnitus I had for one day was after Roger Waters’ concert in Zรผrich last may. At home my ear drums are being caressed by the lips of Diana Krall as if a young angel would pee on your soul ๐Ÿ˜‰

    But I understand 71-bda: in the car sometimes it has to be Muse or Tekkno at 95 dB ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Frenk I too have a bit of Krall after dark at home, but in the car you need about 102db of deep urban underground house garage techno funk a disco ambient hard dance or whatever its calledย  !! My tinnitus is 24/7 like being inside a high frequency noise generator.

    Yesterday I had a quick bass test at home since we installed a new large corner sofa and had to relocate the speakers. I chose Yello, Planet Dada (Flamboyant) with the volume knob set at 12 o’clock. Well, it was a medium earthquake throughout the residential building, innit ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Currently sitting in my cardigan with my pipe and slippers listening to pink floyd on vinyl with a few pops and crackles from my aging wharfdale speakers,if i can get these slippers off i might make it to the shops for my copy of sound and vision.Then on my return a “nice cup of tea”.

    Or shall i fire up the RS and really make some noise.

    Canโ€™t beat a bit of AC/DC in the car, well the Z4 as the RS is worst car audio Iโ€™ve owned. My 63 plate Volvo V40 with premium sound option has been the best.

    My Turntable is still in its box after moving 3 months ago ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ข. If I stop faffy with cars long enough Iโ€™ll get it set.

    @andy thornton: Cardigan and pipe and tea? Bet you were listening to Alan’s psychedelic breakfast. Ah, these floydian slips ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Wonder whether Nick Mason has an Mk3 RS in his collection…

    Love proper music but so much is digital and re-mastered which spoils what vinyl was all about and is coming back in fashion,using Deezer in the car which is mostly re-mastered but still sounds good for a limited ability car stereo,nothing would give me greater pleasure than to blast the neighbours with a bit of Iron Maiden but a really good set up at home is way too expensive.We definately showing our age with the type of classics being discussed.

    Well, yes, too old to rock’n’roll, too young to die. I’m off for a trip through Italy with my Rosie. Think I’ll start with Johnny Cash and CCR. Keep on rocking ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿค˜

    Frenk ! if you are going to italy, there is ONLY one tune to play. I actually took my cd along when I picked the car up new ( at Midnight 28th Feb ’17) and played this as I drove home !

     

     

    P.S, watch out for the tunnels mate!!
