Mark, thanks for the offer...

Latest I know is that 8 watts is sick of me, I mean he is sick!   :)  He has the tape deck at his place...

Also, there is a basic Sony TT at the shop for me...  Making a system for a female friend...  Not sure if the Sony will make it to the party...  It may walk or ride to the party!  ;D  If it does, please bring it back with you!

Thanks again for the offer...

room for at least 3 cars up on the parking pad by my garage without blocking anyone in. in the court directly in front of my house, park nose in not along the circle ...four or five cars will fit. And normally along the rest of the court and street.

You know, I don't think I saw anyone taking pictures.

I had a very nice time.   Many thanks to our host.   It was a pleasure to meet you, Jim.

Jim, you asked about my table.   I have a QL-A7, which is the same as the QL-7 linked below but with the addition of an optical end of record sensor and auto lift.   Not auto return, just auto lift.   It is completely decoupled from the drive mechanism and the arm.   Other than that, these links tell the story pretty well...

Jim,

Thanks for hosting a great party last night.  Met some folks and heard some new to me music.  I took at least one picture of Pepe eating pizza.

Good group of peeps gathered in the garage listening to CDs and vinyl.  The CDs were played on a DBX DX5 - interesting player (recently recapped by Tom and team) with an 'ambience' DSP control that feeds difference signals to the left and right to create a spaciousness effect, DAIR - a transient-enhancing DSP trick, and Compression,  to control dynamic range (never saw any of them before on a CD player).   Ed's famous SL1200 was there replacing the Thorens,  which is now for sale.  It sounded great as expected. 

Other folks (Anders plus other folks) were upstairs with the higher end system and the amazing Clearaudio turntable and KEF speakers.  Good meeting!!

I stayed close to the pizza:
