From the ridiculous to the sublime…
Seems like life these days is highlighting tremendous gulf between the ridiculous (human folly run rampant in all its horrific sociopathic glory) and the sublime (human art, oh how plentiful and accessible, and oh, how beautiful!).
Just taking a moment to listen to some of the art…. to REALLY listen… [ Neli is playing an opera, the first half of which was featured last night on Tuesday Night at the Opera on KSFR Santa Fe hosted by one of us audiophile types… (Hi Darryl!) ]
Audio Note UK Gaku-On amplifiers, M9 Phono preamplifier, DAC 5 Signature, and S9 Step-up transformer and EMM NS1 streamer, all on a HRS VXR equipment rack.
Acapella Apollon speakers, Triangle Art Master Reference turntable.
And the music … listening again today, to the 24/96 recording from Qobuz (also on Tidal):
Stay safe over there!
Thanks, and back atchya, please stay well back there!
Yep. I’ve been in quarantine since Mar. 7 [Neli since the 12th or so] – I self-quarantined once I light-bulbed that 30%+ of our fellow gym rats here are Asian and often travel abroad on business.
We miss the gym SO MUCH! And Neli can’t swim either since the pools were closed. And most mail ordered workout gear is as out of stock as Zinc and toilet paper. Can you say – air squats and 20 lb dumbbells and trying not to go catabolically catatonic looking at the news all day?
[JFYI – Mike is a workout guru, pain specialist and physical therapist rolled into one – and maker of the incomparable radroller – and an audiophile, of course]
So, how are you holding up?
We’re doing fine….Life as usual for the most part.
Still need to make it out to your West Coast listening lab but obviously not anytime soon!
Also, my wife is about 100lbs, so squats with her on my back, and kettlebells are good enough for the time being 😉
