Yeah Rich, and of course the room is the major factor involved. Set up those M50s in your friendly local anechoic chamber and ol' Andres would sound dated indeed.

Yeah; my sucky room is why I went looking for phones in the first place.

Listening to the M50s nearfield brought out the bad stuff in the recordings, but sitting back in my listening chair made ol' Andres sound like his old self again!

Oh! I know! I know!

I built a classical guitar back in '87(the same year that Segovia died) so that makes me a(part time)"Luthier"!

The term "a joy" is used in early lute circles to coin a phrase that has been lost to the mists of time dating back to ancient Moorish craftsmen working with wood and animal internals. It is pronounced something like "w-hoy" with the "w" almost silent.

So it is a supreme complement to say a lutest or a guitarest is "a w-hoy"!

....all the historical information is included in a book that goes along with the bridge that I have for sale!

The latest John Mayer, Continuum.
The recording is less than impressive.
