Minimalist Magic

Yesterday I quickly cobbled together a system in the back listening room to provide background music while I rearranged the system in the front room.

The system bridled at the notion of ‘background music’, however, and drew me to the leather club chair in the sweet spot where it held me prisoner for several hours.

What sorcery is this? Only the best, most synergistic sort:

  • Acoustic Plan DigiMaster CD transport
  • Chord Electronics Hugo TT2
  • Jadis Orchestra Black integrated amp
  • DeVore Fidelity Orangutan 96
  • Luna Cables Blue and Orange AC cords, Red BNC’d SPDIF, interconnects and Blue speaker cables
  • Musical co-conspirators:
    • Tony Bennett and k.d. Lang – ‘A Wonderful World’
      Dongfeng Liu – ‘China Caribe’
      Susheela Raman – ‘Ghost Gamelan’
      Trio Da Kali & Kronos Quartet – ‘Ladilikan’
      Yo Yo Ma – ‘Obrigado Brazil Live in Concert’

    After 15 years doing audio shows and marketing for Audio Note, UK, I took a year off, intending to establish a recording studio dedicated to making natural, minimally processed recordings of acoustic instruments playing jazz, folk, blues, bluegrass and classical music. Somewhere along the way I borrowed a pair of Auditorium 755 speakers and a Shindo pre-amp and power amp from Jonathan Halpern of Tone Imports. Quick as you can say, "Bob's your uncle!", I had become an audio retailer, using Old Forge Studio as a dual purpose space. It's all very exciting and more than a bit crazy . . .
