Here is the slew of projects that coming through the pipeline:

1-setting a PRAT based system with a Naim Nait 3 off from Ebay, currently being looked over at a dealer across the country.

2-Importing a pair of these: from a dealer in Europe because the North American Distributor has not replied to me.  These will be used with the Naim Nait.

3-Improving my 47 Labs Shigaraki with this:
, a separate power supply made by Peter Daniels of AudioSector and Patek Op Chip Amp fame.

4-Playing with a Lowther based OB+separate passive Onken woofer towers, a la BassZilla.

5-Planning in making more speaker designs using some loose fullrange drivers I have...


How many fellow ill suffer from multiple stereo personality bouts?

Moving to a new house has me involved either installing or finishing the following 5 systems:
1 Patio: Needs wiring and an integrated amp; I have an SB3 as source
2 Family room system: needs speakers but have the gear, also using SB3 (originally this would've been the vintage system but I decided to use gear I already owned...)  I'm hoping to buy my old Usher 718's from the guy that bought them from me.
3 Bonus room HT: all in-walls, flat screen, etc.  all speakers are purchased and wire is run, I have the gear... just need to install it all... except I still need to get the flat screen....
4 Master bed/bath: ceiling speakers are here, Onkyo receiver is here, wires are in the walls... Just need to do it to it... SB3 is the source.
5 Dedicated sound room/HT: Unfinished basement when we move in; will need ceiling, floors, walls, wiring, etc.... also need HT pre/pro, 3-channel amp, projector, and screen...

So, is that enough irons in the fire?  :lol:
I really enjoy listening to music.

Thanks!  The coolest part is that they can all play the same music since the SB3's can be synchronized. :)  House party!!!

LOL Lonewolf. I think I either have that album or the antique store up front has it.

Good luck with the new house Carl. Sounds cool (pun intended).

Peter Daniels sent me an email with tracking number, so the power supply for my transport is here any day via Canadian post.  I wonder how it will help the transport keep its rhythm better.

Just this morning, I got the Fedex people deliver an old, beat up box that said "Máquina de ejercício circulatorio"  AKA:  junky exercise machines sold with the label "as seen on TV", for the consumerist market in Spain.

Inside of it, arrived a demo pair of Neat Motive 3s all the way from Spain!  The condition of the binders and the outside case is purfect. 

Now, I am waiting for the Naim Nait 3 to arrive along with a set of DIN terminated cables and it will be time to jam. 

Too bad the Summer is ending, but I will have plenty of fun while messing around with all the goodies this Fall and Winter.  Yeah. 

I am glad that I was not taken on a ride....too many purchases that happened with the shipper from Spain were scams via Audiogon...like those Nigerian scammers.  But, this time around I made sure the speakers were from a reputable dealer.

Will upload photos soon.  Cannot keep all the fun to myself, right?

I have toyed with the idea of a rave, but I think it will be really hard for me to host one.  The upstairs room is smaller than older SETMan's room, and the livingroom is not really well equipped with stereo items.  My 2 year old son occupies most, if not all the room in the livingroom running around and reenacting martial arts stunts.  I will see.  I need to fix up the upper room and then perhaps I can do a super itty bitty rave for at most 2-3.  Full fledge rave are definitely out of question.  With mini session, perhaps I can share my nuttiness.  Let me see how I do it.   :drool:
