  1. Just noticed this. I don't frequent organissimo often. Here is a review and photos of the concert. Review by writer Jay Hunter. Pics by yours truly. One of the last musical events I covered before the COVID 19 shut everything down. Hope you like it. https://nippertown.com/2020/03/10/live-joe-lovano-friends-senate-garage-kingston-03-07-20/
  2. Does anyone know what has happened to the Blue Note Review series?
  3. Trying to help out Mosaic by suggesting sets

    That would be great. But I doubt it is under consideration as this is indeed a limited market that is a niche that Mosaic occupied. It is not Billy Joel, Simon & Garfunkel, Blood/Sweat/Tears or Bruce Springsteen where they would have a huge market ( they have released box sets of them all)
  4. Trying to help out Mosaic by suggesting sets

    I second that topic. I was a college student in the late 70s, they helped me get into jazz. Don Sebesky and Bob James arrangements were kind of schmaltzy yet tasty. I just listened to Grover Washington's Soul Box Vol1 and 2 for the first time in other 10 years. I forgot how great this set was. Don Sebesky's Giant Box is another great 2 album set. I am still blown away by the mash up of Birds of Fire/Firebird. Other than the music, those Pete Turner covers are great art and represented a important departiure from the Blue Note style of primarily using the musicians as part of the cover art. I am a landscape photographer and a live music photographer so I appreciate both types of photos.
  5. LP shelving - dividers. Advice/thoughts?

    Are you going to move sometime in the future and want to move them easily. Here is a modular solution. I am not in anyway affiliated with Tony. Just a customer who has bought from him repeatedly over 10 years: tonyswoodshop.com

  14. DAC Recommendations

    It enables me to have my computer in another location away from my stereo. I'm using my squeezeboxes wirelessly in 2 rooms. Only 1 of them has the external DAC. The Squeezebox is acting as a transport. It is receiving the digital music from my network, then this music is being sent to my DAC using a Coax cable. The DAC is converting the digital signal to music I send the music to my amp and speakers via analog interconnects. The analog output of the Squeezebox is turned off. This is analogous to those that use their CD player as a transport and send the digital info to an external DAC to be processed,
  15. DAC Recommendations

    Yes. It does sound better than than the internal DAC. The sound is more natural and not as sharp with the Musiland. It seems to almost sound analog. However, it still does not sound as good as my Classe CDP 1.5 player.
