Revel Salons

We've just been enjoying one of the wifes favorites, Ray Brown ( Moonlight Serenade ) on CD, JET 60 005. Mellow but beautiful. One of are least compressed and better sounding disc's I should think.

The Revel Salons seem to take this type of music to a higher level, somehow make it more important.

                                                                                                                                                                      Regards

Tim, do you own a pair of the marvellous Revel's? If so, I'm jealous. ;-)

    Hello Mark

   We have the Salon 1's. There on custom platforms, also have removed the four spikes and added three solidly mounted cones, have also had the tweeter upgrade done. We've had these speakers quite a while and have considered upgrading many times, but just haven't found anything I felt was better overall. The system has been setup and voiced using these speakers so a change at this point may be difficult. Guess maybe we'll just have to tough it out.   What speakers are you using?

    ( Levinson #532H , Ayre KX-R , Ayre C5mp , Audio Research DAC8 , S.M.E. 20/12 , Manley Steelhead , etc etc ).

                                                                                                                                Regards  Tim

Fantastic gear you have Tim! I totally dig the Ayre stuff, some of the best around imho.

I have a pair of Eggleston Andra II's. I love them! The best thing I did was to feed them more power. Not to denegrate the Adcom. but it just couldn't do the Eggs justice.

Here is my current setup:

ML 38 pre, Wadia 8 transport, Classe DAC 1, Genesis digital lens, Classe M600 monos, Acoustic Zen double barrel speaker wire (bi-wire), Shunyata python power cords, AudioPrism Foundation II power conditioner,various tweaks.

Looking to upgrade the DAC with an MBL 1611HR in the future.

Andra

Awsome speakers Mark. One of are audio club members has Andra III's, I've heard them many times and think there terrific. There driven to near perfection by a pair of Ayre MX-R's and an Ayre front end. 

I owned the #38 preamp back when, a very versatile preamp, don't know if I ever got the programing mastered, used it at the lake for a few years after removing it from the main system too. I'm a big fan of the new Classe amps, probably would have bought a pair of CTM600's if it wasn't for the dealer. 

                                                                                                                                                                              Have a musical day

Currently, I am quite satisfied. I still want to get rid of the old Classe' DAC 1 in favor of the mbl 1611 or maybe an Accustic Arts DAC1.

How about you?

Steely Dan gold - 1982

Unfortunately this is a shitty recording. But there are so many cool tunes on it and a few unreleased stuff from Becker/Fagen.

Thumbs up. I have the 2006 Steely Dan: The Definitive Collection. You are right, these guys were a hit machine for a while. Don't know how the sound of this one compares with Steely Dan Gold,  but it sounds decent to me. I had just the Aja album for the longest time.

Current rock favorite

Really enjoying one of Carlos Santana's latest, Shape Shifter. I used the track "Mr Szabo" at a speaker demo the other day. Some of the tracks are pretty well recorded for rock.

And believe it or not, I am anticipating the new Justin Timberlake album- some very nice sonic textures and well recorded live instruments on what I hear streaming from iTunes at the moment!

Agreed!

Some nice strings on the singe "Mirrors". I've also enjoyed all the layers of vocal harmonies JT adds.

The mastering is a little funny, but certainly enjoyable. I actually have not stopped listening to that single.

The handclaps, the kick drum, the strings, the distorted guitars. fun stuff.

Got started on old Genesis a couple of days ago, can't stop now. Selling England, Trick, Seconds Out and on.

Big stage on Selling England, wraps around me with voices popping up all over the place on cinema show. Probably have a 30 feet square stage with me being about 5 feet into it. Pretty cool.

have fun!

I've been on a Rush kick as of late

Just good old rock without the analytical half of my brain. Spun three straight albums in a row last night and stayed up way too late. Moving Pictures, Signals and Power Windows.

Has anyone here heard an audio DVD or the CD "The Very Best of Moby" It has some of the best songs I ever heard on it, and I never heard of Moby until I ordered this disc.I'm an old guy, not someone you would expect would get into Moby.
