Still on hiatus for now

Wow, I really haven’t written much in 6 years. Sorry.

The reason is two-fold. I finally got off the equipment railroad and just began enjoying what I had. So, my audio system remains unchanged remained unchanged for 6 years. And I am still fine with that. I love what I have and wish I had more time to listen.

Still, I did go a bit renegade with our set-up. The fact is we have a family and our needs go beyond just great music. Where is that? Oh, yeah, movies and media. So, we’ve upgraded the TV a few times, added in an Anthem AVM60 mated with a Red Dragon S500. These work together with the Shindo (using separate cords….) to fill our wonderful home with sound. We move between the two set-ups by swapping out what cords are plugged in to the Orangutans.

So, I’ll repeat what I said in 2014 – I am enjoying what I have. Just wish I had more time and less chaos to spend more time enjoying. And I’ll add this bit of self-absorbed wisdom – spend more time enjoying what you have than you spend wanting what you don’t have. It’s a liberating concept I try to embrace more and more each day.

Best wishes to  you all, and may each of you spend more time listening than contemplating a system acquisition.  🙂

PS – If I can find some time, then I’ll get an update or two on the audio and home theater equipment.  Cheers!

Should I write or not….

It should be obvious that I don’t spend enough time here.  I think the last meaningful post dates back to 2012. Ouch. Well, FWIW, at that time I was engaged in trying to find an auditory bliss.  But right after that in early 2013, I hit pretty darn close to whatever bliss might be when it comes to audio reproduction in my home. I’ve not had one significant moment where I thought about new or other equipment. Sure, there are occasional drifts in thought about whether there might be an update to my speakers by DeVore (096 => 098). But those are faint blips and more curiosity about what D is cooking up in his shop.

That said, I am enjoying what I have. Just wish I had more time and less chaos to spend enjoying.

The system has remained unchanged for 2 years. And I am fine with that. In fact, I’ve enjoyed it. This new year may yield some reviews, as I note there is more traffic on this blog than I appreciated. (Thanks, Steve, for your recent comment reminding me about the blog….).

Best wishes to  you all, and may each of you spend more time listening than contemplating a system acquisition.  🙂
