This Neve console has a turntable too!
Ooh, how I love this!
The wonderful Joe Bonamassa will give me a commission if you buy this fantastic amp with this images link! Or, indeed any link to JB merch off of my site. Your help is appreciated and would be unprecedented.
Ooo, baby, I want one… or two! Or three!
I have a CL-1, thanks to a kind Christmas gift from my brother and it enabled me to do my job better. Much, much better!

Fabulous! Super flat, but troubles betwixt drivers.

Just finished this Duo12V-Sub18 system for All In Entertainment’s new studio in Birmingham, AL! Artistic final custom to client’s vision!
It gets no better than Augsperger…
Fairchild 670 compressor serial number 10. (!!!) Normally, the faceplates are pretty faded, but this one is pristine. Possibly a different finish used early on.
Wow. This was at the notorious Vintage King Audio. The uninitiated may be shocked to learn that this multi-decade old compressor is worth at least $30,000 and probably more because of the non-faded faceplate. Wow, indeed.
I worked on an audio / video installation at Mr. Fairchild’s apartment in Manhattan with a systems installation contractor I once worked for.
I think this compressor pedal is worth buying even if you don’t have a guitar.
A whole mess o’ sweet 500s, featuring A-Designs.
Just a dream, as is most of the audio porn you’ll find here.
Oh, baby, be still my heart!

Is this gear heaven? 💦💦 – NK Sound Tonyo, @kingneeraj via @rupert_neve – it’s the world’s largest 5088 neve console installed in here.
[I am assuming that Tonyo is really Tokyo.]

Interior of BBC Broadcasting House in 1932 Studio 6E
Weird tonearms and super high strangeness cartridges! High end for 1932, though, what.
Way cool knobs on that mixer, eh.
Well, that’s a different setup.
A beautiful IV-S equipped with a custom made replacement for the QGB reel adapter.
It is so pleasing to see this piece engineered and offered to those lucky enough to have a Nagra, as the QGB is nowadays rare and pricey.
Oh, Lord, how I wish I was among them, but poverty rules here, sadly.

The inimitable Bozak CMA 10-2DLA stereo mixer preamplifier.
A true legend, it has a cult following. I would love to have one; for the phono circuits, especially. It’s out of my league, of course, price-wise. This one’s going for $2,100 bucks.
Made with no nonsense just 15 minutes Northeast of here. Extremely highly regarded by everyone. This was the first pro level DJ mixer and was a standard for the then-new field.
All hail Rudy Bozak!
Superior speakers, too, came from Rudy Bozak, a point-source dude!.
Analog. I love analog.
The machine is a TEAC X10.
TEAC = Tokyo Electric Appliance Company.
OMG how lovely!
The fantabulous Quad 12L Studio!
These are basically my 12Ls but in a powered version! And we know how good Quad amps are, eh? That said, mine are powered by a Hafler P3000 transnova, so mine just might win! Ha! Hahaha!
Gosh, even so, I would love to get these, just because they are what they are — but, there’s my persistently non-existent budget standing firmly in the way, as I doubt that affirm will help me. As usual.

A nice attempt at simulating the legendary legend.

The Stellavox Stellamaster SM8 is the highest fidelity analog magnetic tape recorder ever made. The recorder pictured in this gallery is actually an SP7 Stellamaster, which is basically the same, for all intents and purposes, finishing in second by mere thousandths of a percent.
It is spectacular.
How sweet it is!
This place is like a dream come true!

That photo right there is a nicely detailed representation of a long-standing dream of mine. One that will forever remain unrequited. Just another part of the curse placed upon my weary soul.
Turntable, tube amp, horn-loaded speaker… Good to go.
Someone said it might be a Leak setup. I do not know.
Wow, man, oly chit … I have never, ever seen one of these!
Wicked cool. Yup.
The lovely, yet finicky, Rabco ST-7 Linear Tracking turntable by Harman Kardon.
Rare these days. My late, great dad was intrigued and called it the “Rabco Stick.”
Never did get one, though. Seen ‘em for around $400.
This was my dream.
It’s gone unrequited.
In accordance with God’s curse.
New! Oh, Lawdy!
Will most assuredly be far out of my reach…
A Yamaha A-S3000 integrated amp. Yamaha is back into high-end instruments again after a bit of a hiatus. More stuff for me to ogle as the wealthy enjoy the luscious sound… $8,000 list or, just 7 for a little while! Quick, run! Lol.
Keep dreamin,’ Ig.

A trusty Philips 312.
Sweetness and light for that aural delight.
I’ve a friend in Jolly ‘Ole who has one of these and has used it as the main ‘ub to record for decades and ‘ave ‘er own record label. And stuff. Yeah!
If I ever need to replace my trusty old R2, this one is…
Because it has TWO Thunderbolt 3 ports!
It’s the only rig I’ve found, so far, besides it’s predecessor, the 550, that can boast that feature. I guess ASUS is the only one that “gets it.”
A wonderfully musical engineering classic in the rarefied world of tonearms.

Bigfoot screams Sierra Nevada, July 1, 2019
Published on Jul 12, 2019
My family and I returned to a spot where we went camping last year. No reason on the spot, The wife just found this location on maps. Last year, as we slept, my 12 year old son woke up to something slapping our trailer. As he was looking up at the window thru the blinds, he saw something very big walk by the window covering the whole window.. from the ground to the top of the window is 7 feet.. it scared him so bad he jumped in bed with us crying hysterically. So we decided to go back, but this time with my sound equipment.. All we were hoping was to get some wood knocks. Well, we got more than that… it went on for a little more than 9 minutes. Needless to say, we will never forget that night…
I am going to need to listen to this a few more times. Yes.
These screams, after just this first listen, are some of the strangest sounds I’ve clapped ears on. Quite a lot of them don’t sound much like screams to my mind. As of now. I am at a loss for words to describe them, even. Tomorrow, when I’m less pooped.
Is it … singing? Is it a concert? Of sorts?
That would be strange.
Interesting discussion going on here.

Trident88 16 Channel Console with Analog VU Meters
A serious Nirvana-type trip, y’dig? Yes, this thing, inheriting all the goodness of the legendary Trident 80-series console by Mr. John Oram, known as the father of British EQ, is the real thing, as they say. It’s about $25K as it is in the picture. That fee is truly not bad at all seeing as it’s an actual, real, living Trident and all.

Dig them big, beefy Neveian, Focusritey knobs! Knobs. It’s such a warm and fuzzy word. So nice and woody. Not tinny at all!
