I doubt a politician will ever use that song because of the lyric, "but I don't know what to do! So I'll leave it up to you!"Ten Years After - The Essential Ten Years After
I'm still waiting to hear someone use "I'd Love to Change the World" on the campaign trail somewhere.
Those CD decks were an anomaly in the audiophile world. They are multi-play, noisy when changing CDs and cost less than a mink coat. What they did do well was play music. I got mine from my neighbor who happened to be an Adcom dealer and he couldn't keep them in stock they were flying out the door so fast. Sometimes I think I want something like a Rega or Shanling then I come to my senses. Adcom was going to make a 750 but I don't know if they ever did.Looks sweet BT. My Adcom is the 700 as well. As far as I know Adcom has never replaced it with anything that sounded better.
No doubt the VPI is gorgeous just as it is and sounds just as good. You could do the Scout platter upgrade for around $300 and improve the system a bit. You are still using the Benz Glider I assume so it would cost an arm and a leg to upgrade from that. Have you tried any platter mats? I have been trying out a few lately and they all make the music sound different. I have a Rega felt mat, cork mat (I forget who makes that), and two mats from Herbie's Audio Lab I have his way excellent mat and his grungebuster mat. If there was a fire and I had to save just one mat I would grab the grungebuster . I also started using his super sonic stabilizer (Platter weight) instead of the screw down clamp that came with my table and I removed the spike feet to add a set of his Iso cups under the plinth but I changed the balls from lampblack to the grungebuster balls which are white.I absolutely love the looks of the Scout. Due to this thread, I ran across some criticisms of the platter vs. the table I am using. You might want to check out. Of course you can always buy a platter upgrade, but the cost from VPI are exorbitant!
I picked up an original copy of Jimmy Reed Live at Carnegie Hall at a Garage Sale a few years ago. If you listen in the background there is a female voice singing in the background very low. I have been told it was Jimmy's wife singing the words to him because he couldn't remember them.Derek Trucks Band Songlines
Omar Dykes and Jimmy Vaughan On the Jimmy Reed Highway
The latter disc is what made me pull out the Lee Ann Barton. She sings some on the JR Highway.
I might should look for some Jimmy Reed and some Eddie Taylor. Good stuff!
