Happiness is listening to Okie from Muskogee on the Freedom at 12:30 am on a cool summer night while burning tamarac birch in the firepit and nursing a gin and tonic on the rocks with one-and-a-half twists of lime.

My Airs are keeping my roofers entertained. The Freedom in the front yard and the Force in the back. Neighbors are none too pleased with Mi Paisito radio. Too energetic for their dead souls.

I'll Air out my entire house and yard. I'll be more of an Air head than I already am.
How are the Air transformers working out?
How do you have all your streaming setup?
Are you using a central server for digital audio files?
How are you setting up playlists or do you mostly use internet radio?

I'm still on the Sonos system but it is getting long in the tooth. I'm not sure if i'll change this or not but if one fails, i'll be looking long and hard at the BlueOS units.

Chess, I have not received the Transformer yet. I think Axiom may be waiting to send me the Transformer at the same time as the Force battery I ordered. That battery is on back-order due to COVID.

I plan on using Internet Radio and Spotify. I don't have any of my music digitized. It's a PITA to digitize it all.

My Freedom has been playing internet radio on battery for 19 hours at the volume level shown on the image below. Adequate volume for a quiet deck.

19:06 until low voltage disconnect. Pretty damned good for a 9 hour battery.

I've been listening almost exclusively to the Freedom because I don't have a battery for the Force yet. Today I pulled the Force out to keep my mind off the grueling yard work I've been torturing myself with. I have to say the Freedom sounds more balanced. Perhaps some may say it is thin but I look at the Freedom as an M2 and the Force as an M3. I'd rather have flatter bass than more booming bass.

We need the Fury to have flat, full, glorious bass like the active LFRs.

And the Fury must have 450W dynamic Watts per side and a mid-woofer and a switch that allows the mid-woofer to be taken out and mids handled by the woofer so it can sound like an M50 when we want mellow and not analytical. All protected in a non-resonant enclosure.
