Ha, thanks Chris!

 

Of course, as they say, you do your best editing AFTER submitting your work. The Marantz equipment I wish I still had, and which was my first was a 2230, not a 2030.

I actually thought that was the case, but let it go because the 2030 could've been the right one, but it's only a cassette player :~)

 

I'll update.

" I have a very special vinyl album of Duke Ellington and Alice Babs in Paris in 1963 titled Serenade to Sweden that came to me via a friend of my dads from Leigh himself. It was the background music he would play during the time in-between songs and is absolutely beautiful music. "

 

Color me jealous!

 

Leigh and Lowell Pickett (the owner of The Dakota jazz club) are two reasons that the Twin Cities have had such a vibrant Jazz Scene.

 

I ripped that album to preserve it, but when Leigh passed I felt it was appropriate to play the vinyl itself. Its so achingly beautiful.

AudioDoctor,

 

Do you remember Hobb's House? It was a very late night show on WCCO that was broadcast from Mr. Hobb's house. I think that show may have been Leigh's inspiration.

 

Letting go of my 2270 was the worst audio mistake of my life. And I say this after also selling two MC-60 mono amps...

I do not remember that show, in my house the radio never left MPR and we didn't own a TV.

thanks... one of the reasons I come here, audiophiles who actually like music

 

Yep, it is. As is Morgan James new album, Memphis Magnetic.

 

A small label called Real Gone had it available on CD for a while as well, I bought one.

Hi @AudioDoctor is there a particular reason why you are not using the onboard DAC module? is it the da1 or da2?

Thanks.

 

I have the DA2 module now, and of course it came with the DA1. The DA2 is used for the TV and its ARC connection, which I wouldn't use at all if I didn't have kids. I use the Schiit Yggdrasil to listen to music because I think it sounds better.
