Re: You are from where?

Minnesota, the land of high end.

Within the Twin Cities alone there is Maganapan, Bel Canto, Audio Research, Atma-Sphere (Wadia used to be just across the river in Wisconsin).

We have modifiers such as Great Northern Sound (Steve just opened a high end store as well) and Audio by Van Alstine.

There are more, but this is the quick list.

And, being from Minnesota, they are all nice.

Re: You are from where?

As my sidebar profile says: Salem, MA, a few miles up the road from Bahstin. Great lil' city is Salem- and it houses a thriving used (and new) record store. Just picked up a bunch of mint condition albums yesterday... and guess what? the sales guys there are actually friendly and knowledgeable!

Between the Klamath and Smith Rivers on the coast of California 30 miles south of the Oregon border. Beautiful, but audio deprived.

I'm moving to Chico in a month or three, and at CES met an audiophile from Oroville.

Close enough for some parties?

I've got a great friend up there. I love that neighborhood. Almost moved there myself. (Though not directly across the street from the University.)

Chico is a notorious university party town and only 300 miles away. 150 miles on the dreaded switchbacks of hiway 299 (Redding). About 5 1/2 hours.

Honey, I have to jump over to Buddha's to demag some discs. I'll be back in a few days! BTW, Welcome to California!

Never been to Brooklyn, perhaps I never will. But I've been to many and varied great geographic locations. I'm not knocking on brooklyn, but there are lots of centers of the universe. They are each usually associated, on a 1-to-1 basis, with a single human brain!

Arizona, as stated in my profile.
Still trying to choose between Palo Verde Nuke power or Colorado River Hydro power. Palo Verde sounds more solid state, while the hydro power has a softer tube like sound to it.

Skinflint's seared tuna isn't half bad either.

Fremer is in Jersey? Shit, that explains everything! Behold for he doeth not deserve our wrath, for we shall give him our pity. Someone call Amazing Randi, he may want to contribute a million to the MF sympathy fund.

Savage, Minnesota. Where the current temp is -14 F.
I am at a loss as to why I am still here. Must be a SWMBO issue.

How far do we have to drive to find a decent High End Audio dealer from the Minneapolis area?

Re: You are from where?

Better jump in here and represent the heartland of the USA. Which in my particular case, is southwest Missouri; The little town of Nevada, to be exact. (Say nuh-VAY-duh; Some of the locals are kind of touchy about that.)

Our average temperature here in January is 41 degrees. The trouble is, one day it's 20 and the next it's 62.

The closest audio emporiums are in Kansas City, 100 miles to the north, and the only local store that has a selection of CD titles is our Wal-Mart. Needless to say, I am an "internet audiophile".

Born in Kearney in'52. Parents lived in Lyndhurst, Newark, etc. They migrated to the west when the Brooklyn Dodgers moved (seriously). Have relatives (Cinardo) all over NJ/NY.

Cool. I bet my grandfather considered moving, too. Instead, he became a Mets fan, dooming us all to cold winters and frustrating summers.

Being from Brooklyn and just a wee lad when the Dodgers stabbed their fans right through their hearts, I was raised to believe that the two words "Walter O'Malley" were the foulest and most evil in the entire English language.

The treatment of fans by the owners of the many professional sports teams in the US have never recovered from that fateful day when the Dodgers were taken away.
