Remember when we first met — standing at the bar, admiring the jukebox's warm glow? How I somehow got around to telling you about that $90,000 turntable? It almost seems silly now. The small talk of first meetings often does, I suppose, seem silly. But not ours. Nothing "silly" about it. And nothing small. I don't know what made me think I should mention it — this silly turntable — but, a day later, you'd call and leave a message saying you'd like to hear more. "Fascinating," was the word you used.

Beck Hanson pokes his little pink head up and out from between a pair of Druids.

This mild-mannered bunch of classical guitarists had me wanting to jump up on my seat and curse my brains out.

Paul Lim then introduced me to the diminutive NuForce Reference 9 monoblock amps ($4200/pair) in their very attractive Rose Copper Special Edition finish. I'm all about the fancy colors, y'all.

Imagine HiFi's Paul Lim redirected my attention to Almarro's cute A205A amplifier in sassy iPod white finish. The price of this amp with iPod input has yet to be determined, but the standard version goes for $800.

Though the finish of the Cain & Cain speakers was lovely, all I could really focus on were their Frisbee-like belly buttons. I'm a little bit sorry to admit that, because I found the speaker itself unattractive, I lost interest in what it had to say. I couldn't get around the looks to examine the sound. This is something I will have to work on.

The guys have posted a couple of entries discussing the very neat Bard wireless music system.

I was fooled into believing that Ryan Adams was in the Mobile Fidelity room. He was telling me he wished I'd steal all of his records and screw all of his friends. This seemed strange, indeed.

I totally agree with Wes. My favorite part of any show is meeting with fellow tribe members.
