Hey I just saw someone else introduce themselves... so I will too!
« on: September 03, 2009, 07:49:35 AM »
My name is Mike.... I have some Merlin VSM MXs which sound divine powered by Nuforce 9SEv2s, a Supratek Sauvignon preamp, Bryston BDA-1 DAC (superb) and a Squeezebox 3 with all my music on HD in ALAC format on a Mac. I am in advertising, and Im very good at what I do. ;) Im funny, sometimes veer on the side of outlandish, I am also honest, to the point and down to earth. A big fan of the Grateful Dead, but I listen to every genre of music! No Im not looking for a date. lol. Just wanted to say hi!
Mike

Welcome Mike!

I'm sure you'll fit in well here. Good sense of humor, good communicator, tube preamp, you are the perfect AN candidate.

Sounds like you got a very, VERY nice system. Tell us about it, what you like, what you don't?

Feel free to participate in any conversations that strike your fancy, and post some pictures in the Gallery.

He's got another qualification that several others here can also lay claim to ... banned from Audio Circle.
 :D/ [-( :wtf:

Lets give Mike a great big AN "Hello"  :yay2:

Cool, glad to have you.. don't know the history at AC, and probably don't want to.. We don't have a lot of rules.. There are a couple.. no religion or politics.. and treat all AN members w/ respect.  That's pretty much it at the moment. 

I've enjoyed your posts so far.. even bought a cd based on your album review. :)

I've got a degree in Ad/PR and do professional photography, web design, Ecommerce, and Systems Integration.  Let me know if you need something.  I can probably do it... and do it well. ;)  (I figure, hey, while we're tooting our own horns, why not?.. ;) )

Hope you enjoy it here,
Carl



I really enjoy listening to music.

So true, I am a big believer in self tooting! And I wasnt bad in my previous life... so no worries.

Also that album by Sarah Jarosz is really great.. the whole thing which is unusual.

I am not a big fan of indie music.... or country. But give me some bluegrass or jazz or even metal.
HEres my rundown on indie... I was thinking about it and trying to figure out whether Im getting old (41) or I have a legitimate argument. Indie is about tapping into some kind of emotion, splashing around in it. Saying yeah isnt this fun, but theres no message or direction attached. Isnt there supposed to be a bigger picture? Its uprooted too but takes liberally from any genre of music liberally without calling it by name.

Thats not too esoteric is it? Anyways... lol
Peace.
Mike

Welcome Mike

I've always enjoyed your posts in the past.  I have a pretty thick skin and am always interested in a 'different' point of view or expression.

Enjoy it here.  Great bunch of guys.  Bring some others with you as we grow.

Hey This seems to be the forum software that AC used to be run on. I like it much better.

I think we both use the same base code (SMF), AC has customized it a lot.. they have a lot of cool features.  I don't have the time to devote to do that.. but we do have some cool options.. like a gallery that accepts video and you can attach an image to a post if you check out the 'Additional Options' section below the posting area.

Welcome! I represent the senior citizen segment and if they they let me dither and dodder you gotta figure there's a high degree of tolerance on AN! AC has become like an audio version of Times Square (with the traffic). AN is like a quiet Sunday morning in a provincial French town.
