Nope....that's my room at home...and it's an old pic. Let me post my current (like...right now setup). New computer, headphones, and...a 1.5 year difference.



Open Headphones (on left) Sennheiser 595's, Closed headphones (on right) Sennheiser HD 25-1 II's, IEM's are Etynomic ER-6i's

For those of you who want history of my setups (My Dorm Room, at least):

Dorm Room #1
Dorm Room #2
Dorm Room #3

Jack, you can see they are pretty crappy compared to my room at home :-)

CV, the receiver is an RX-V557

One of these days I'll post a complete Axiom history thread when I finally get settled. To date, I have completely moved my sound system 6 times.

It looks like a really fun setup. I'm working on my computer setup, but it will take a while.

It's been a while since I mentionned this, but I actually do love my speakers!

I worked tripple in the past 3 weeks and today was one of the first time I could both listen to some music WHILE being relax enough to genuinely enjoy it! From harpsichord solo to Xenakis percussion music and many, many other stuff... These Axiom products sound sooooo gooooood........

What an enjoyment!

Have a nice end of evening to all (I still have a few things to listen to).

Who's a total badass on a harpsichord? Yes, I'm really asking.

Charles, you're asking about performers on the harpsichord, and although in pop music it's common to look for the name of the "artist" first, rather than the musical composition, in the classical realm it's more usual to do the reverse. There're many harpsichordists who've recorded, but it's probably better to consider a piece of music that's wanted and then pick a performer(maybe out of dozens)who you think does it especially well. Just to name a few, however, there're Igor Kipnis, Gustav Leonhardt, Trevor Pinnock, and Masaaki Suzuki.

Maybe the first question to be determined is if you really like to listen to the harpsichord, because not all appreciate its tonal qualities. For example, the noted British conductor Sir Thomas Beecham expressed the thought that the harpsichord sounded like "Two skeletons copulating on a corrugated tin roof"!

Rather than suggesting specific works, a good way to get an introduction to the sound is by way of a compilation disc such as this one . If Eric sees this he may have some suggestions.

My first answer to Charles would have to be that I was listening to Johann-Christian Bach (the "London" Bach) since as John mentionned, composer first. I actually had to go look on the "description" I put in iTunes to remember it was played by Virginia Black.

I don't have specific introductory selection, but one of the good "first taste" could be Bach's French Suites played by Gustav Leonhardt.

Thanks, John and Eric. I'll have to see about those.

That's a great description by Sir Thomas Beecham. "Bones Boning" would be a fun title for a disc of harpsichord music.

I would avoid a collection of harpsichord by Bach with a title like Musical Offering. I don't remember the exact title, but it is quite possibly the worst rendition of Bach since I started learning to play piano at age 8 with a book of simplified Bach melodies. The harpsichordist in particular has no clue about rhythm or tempo and sort of randomly speeds up and slows down. I don't know how it got recorded.

Well... I haven't said that often enough lately, but it is still true!
I thought I would re-state this as my 2000th post!
