Great bargain find (mis-price?) on Amazon this week. Sod the CDs picked up earlier. I will be listening to this first.

Small find

Really slim picking recently. Little success today. nothing really to shout about, but will be a nice listen later.

Been a while

It has not been for want of trying, but the pickings have not been good at all. Very small success today with a little selection.

more boom

Upgrade-itice strikes yet again, beckoning me once more to her warm embrace. Never really happy with the Wharfedale SW150 subwoofer. It made low level noise, but was never really controlled and got a bit too boomy. With music I found it unusable. The low level drone just cancelled out the listen pleasure for vinyl and CD. The lower compression of streaming suffered even more. SW150 was boxed up and sold on a forum I frequent. After living sub--less for a couple of weeks I gave in and purchased this beauty: A BK Gemini II in light oak. I mean, look at it, it is lovely just to look at. Still breaking it in, but the low level experience is in another league. So much tighter, and musical. When listening to music it is a world of difference, and with films, the gut punch is more than enough. I only have a small listening room, and the reason I went for this entry level sub is I just don't need anymore at present.

New arrival from Amazon. Actually purchased a new release. I love the fact Amazon gives you the MP3 when you buy from them most of the time. Have already been listening to this on Spotify, and Then Amazon, since it came out a couple of weeks ago. Was hooked since his first Album, Endtroducing, which I have on original CD in gatefold packaging...so cool
