with the PC, it's like alt-225 (or some other three digits) on the numeric pad. Quite nttv, wouldn't you say?

>>I've made a mess of my collection by grabbing everything I think will sound amazing and piling it up in the living room.

This is surprisingly common. Glad you're enjoying the new speakers !

I love them so much that I turn the stereo on at 8:00 a.m. and don't turn it off again until after midnight. If only had time to listen to everything I own! I'd been home 24/7 for the next ten years. ;-} Too bad I'm still 20-30 years from retirement. ;-p

Cool! The pleasure does not dimish with time and that's saying something about a sound system! I am more a 5:00-21:00 person, but I guess it is the number of hours that matters and not the exact schedule! \:\)

Hi Zoe,

Was on a Mac years ago but not now. Much amused by my name with all the umlots. I wonder how you'd pronounce that?

By the way, on the amplifier front, Axiom's chief electronics engineer, "Uncle Tom" Cumberland, designed amplifiers for Luxman and Macintosh (tube and solid-state), so that means you're just going to have to get Axiom's new A1400-8 digital amplifier, since Uncle Tom designed it!

I'm delighted that you're enjoying the M60s.

Regards,

I'm guessing that "Uncle Tom" does not carry the same meaning in Canada as the US.

Hey Mark,

I just got back to this thread. No, it's not Eva Cassidy, although she's great, too.

I just went and checked. The singer is Nancy LaMott. I have two or three of her CDs. If you like Eva Cassidy, I think you'll like Nancy LaMott.

The recording quality on her CDs is variable. I think there is one I resisted getting ("Live at Tavern on the Green") because her mike is so sibilant that I knew no amount of tone control manipulation or EQ could correct it.

Regards,

My first amp (22 years ago) was a 28Wpc Luxman (can't remember the model number) and I really, really liked it! Unfortunately, some unwelcomed guests at my appartment (i.e. thieves) departed with it. That was when, for some reason, Luxman became very hard to obtain (at least in Montreal) and I had to settle for some Yamaha receiver (had to match the insurance claims! \:\( ). It wasn't THAT bad, but I really missed my Luxman...

This means I have now closed the loop with Uncle Tom!

Oops. Typical of a Canadian to blunder into that one, and on Martin Luther King Day. It wasn't meant in that context.

Yes, Luxman had some really lovely gear, including an integrated turntable that I always admired. I almost picked up a used one a few years ago because it was just so pretty, although I almost never play vinyl anymore.

Indeed, you have closed the circle with Tom Cumberland!
