http://anticables.com/ I picked up a .5 meter 3.1 Reference Series USB cable this week. Plugged it in, and, will run it in for some time before I do any critical listening. We’ll hear what’s next…
Saw All Them Witches tonight.
I finished the Quickie build last weekend. Only took a couple hours. I haven’t finished the base yet. Not sure what direction to go, as the chassis plate is yellow. Not my first (or third) choice, but this is part of the fun with this kit.

Mid-tempo grooves, and a touch of Americana. Dig it.
The interstage caps have arrived. Cool. Parafeed caps are coming soon – hoping next week. Will install tonight and see what’s what. I’ve got about 4 hours on them now, and they sound really nice. Mids are more present and there’s a dimensionality to these caps. Stage is deeper. Very natural highs. We’ll see what […]
1994. Surprising experimental, art-rock, jazz, metal, alternative music? Dramatic, Mercury like vocals? Yep, that about sums it up. A must have. Go now.
