Also, does Revel have any plans for an active line?

They certainly have the necessary expertise and resources under the Harman roof.

Cassandra Wilson
Cassandra Wilson - Blue Light 'Till Dawn

Liked the little snippet I listened to well enough, looked it up, didn't recognize any names on it, but BlueNote has a pretty good track record, went shopping, bought the CD, arrived this afternoon, first spin now. Little JBLs playing, me listening off-axis, after a nice long nap.



Real players playing real instruments, manages to create "Live in the Studio" sound, released in 1993.

It isn't often someone here makes a sale. I'm not that easy a customer.

If you take $3.99 shipping into account it cost -$0.27, total $3.72 Prime and in VG condition.

Your music posts often mention Shazam now - didn't know what that was, just looked it up.

I wonder if they have this in their database:



My Audio Buddy John gigged (guitar) with the band for a while, has a copy of the master for Funky Thing in one piece before it got split in half to fit onto both sides of a '45.

I've contemplated getting the LSR308 for my living room as a 'why not' kind of toy.

They're designed for nearfield -- do you find them capable of filling a living room at midfield?

That's how I'm using them now. They are currently outboard of the main speakers.

I often forget whether I have the ML or the JBL playing, here at the desk, after switching, with my back to them.The visual tell is a red/green Zone1/Zone2 LED on the preamp.

Cassandra (above), a little louder than I was listening before, at the couch:

Yeh, I bought a ton of used CDs on Amazon for a few cents over shipping of $3.99. I think the shipping costs less than that and some of the profit is in there.

In all but one case or two, I got CDs that I could rip reliably.

Now I used Tidal and have stopped buying all CDs.
