  1. Hello everyone. If you have any recommendations for record stores in Philly, please let me know. I'll be close to U. Penn campus.
  2. Yes, that might be the way to go. I need 5 that holds 3 CD's and 1 that holds 4 CD's. Thanks.
  3. Thanks, Dmitry. But these look like, judging from the pictures on Amazon, that they have centre tray spokes that make releasing CD's difficult. The jewel cases that Mosaic used are like these, and they seem to hold the CD's very tightly and make retrieving CD's difficult and precarious. I am looking for ones that have centre tray spokes that are like the tray spokes on the regular jewel cases -- with 12 teeth. I hope that makes sense.
  4. Hi guys. I think I've seen a thread on this topic, but I can't find it right now. I just got my Mosaic Savoy and Dial sets, and want to replace the flimsy jewel cases that Mosaic used, which also have centre spokes that make taking out CD's hard and dangerous. What I am looking for I think are called "chubby doubles". They are twice the thickness of regular jewel cases, and can store 3-4 CD's. I would like to get high quality ones that use thick plastic and have spokes that release the CD's without the fear of breaking the CD's. I am in the UK, and would like leads on sellers of such CD cases for the UK or the US. (I can retrieve them next time I am in the US.) Thanks in advance.
  5. Holy cow! I had no idea. What a sad loss...
  6. Just heard from Scott Wenzel at Mosaic. Apparently, the Savoy set will be reprinted later this month. So if any of you are interested in this, you should put in an order with Mosaic rather than searching for it at other places.
  7. Thanks, everyone. Would love to visit the Hague, where I've never been. My sister lived there in the 1990's and she loved it. I fondly remember visiting record stores in Amsterdam about 10 years ago.
  8. If you could recommend some good jazz CD & record shops -- both used and new -- I'd appreciate it. Just moved here, and finally feel settled enough to have a look.
  9. Hi folks, I just moved from US to UK, and brought my CD player and amplifier with me. I am trying to figure out what kind of voltage converter I need. I am completely ignorant about these matters, but how much wattage would a normal CD player (NAD C 516BEE) and an ancient Sony amplifier (with built in phono amp) use? I can't figure it out by looking at the back panels of these things. If you know any ballpark figure, I would be grateful for your guidance. Thanks. And if you know of any brand name of these converters that you think are reliable, I would be happy to have that too. Lots of choices on Amazon UK.
  10. Through some ordering mishaps I won't bore you with, I have come to have extra sealed copies of the following. $16.50 each or $31 for both, including shipping in continental US. Paypal payment expected. Thanks. Please order fast. I am visiting the US for only a couple more weeks. XXX: sold Bill Evans, "Top of the Gate" (Resonance) [2-CD set; trio w/ E. Gomez, M.

  14. Greg, Thanks. That helps and reassures me. No mention of this in the booklet, as far as I can tell.
