We are only hours away from a full lock-down here in NZ.... Alert Level 4 and State of Emergency Declared. Exclamation

 #1 wifelet has moved out to care for her aged Father... The dog and I are left to feed and entertain ourselves....(meat night !)

Unboxed the big speakers...(Shahinian Arcs) and have been 'exercising' them ahead of a listening.... Smile

As the crossover caps reform and the surrounds become more flexible the SQ improves in leaps and bounds..4 days and counting... Wink

Looking forward to the next MoOde release... and now having plenty of down  time to enjoy it !!


In these uncertain times the MoOde team continue to refine and update ..... 6.5 looms and no doubt will be awesome. Cool

When it lands and fills the void of your own self isolation show your appreciation....send a donation and support Tim and his continued commitment to your audio-phonic enjoyment... Smile

all the best to you and yours, and to Tim and the Team...
Stay safe..
Bob.

Kind words, thanks.
Stay safe is all I can also say. Here, in France, it's a nightmare in the daylight.
And yes I do hope I can support Tim & Team ASAP, but à la Morrissey "how soon is ASAP?"...no more job for the me and that's just a bad dream when others have nightmares...
For everyone:
Haut les cœurs !

Yep... here in So California, it's the same... virtual lockdown,  stay in, stay safe, and stay sane...  doing so will help,  and it won't last forever.

I noticed,   with a smile on my face,  a WHO suggestion for better mental health...  limit looking at the news to twice a day.   Wink

Luckily we have music... our own, and worlds of streaming in services or online radio stations.  (local on air ones, too!)

Also thought I'd share this article,  suggesting a radical, new way to listen to music, (at least to the not very music appreciating, non audiophile majorities out there)

as something to try...  Appreciating Whole Albums with one's Full Attention.  (what a concept!)
NYT Deep Listening

Definitely something to do with all the extra time at home...   Cool Big Grin

OMG. Sideburns, lying on the floor, record changer, Barney Kessel "Easy Like". If it weren't for the watch band on the wrong wrist (I'm a southpaw) that could have been me Tongue

Heheheheh!!!  Love it!   

The "on the floor" thing got me...   Twas oh, a couple decades later than Clint there.  I was remembering a high school buddy who invented a listening style we all called "Ed W Headphones".

Put the family's big speakers 3 feet apart on the floor,  with a large pillow in between them...  and take in, oh, say "Close to the Edge"  or "Dark Side of the Moon",  or "Foxtrot", or Led Zeppelin I, II, III, IV, or some Deep Purple,  for that matter...   Helped if both your folks worked and would be gone long enough not to come home and, er, break the listening spell...

Whatever the album that can move you, from Baroque Classical to "Kind of Blue" to something written yesterday...   Haven't given it a GOOD listen for a while?  Reserve some time and give it the space and attention it deserves....

Oh, and let us know how it went...   Hey,  I wouldn't mind finding some new things worth immersing myself in!  New thread anyone?
