Gotta love this one. A Honda-four ratbike. With an analog gas gauge. And brass knucks on the fork brace. And hot-off-the-lot surplus panniers.

What are you running?
Haven't had tube stuff in a long time. Never went back, unfortunately, although I grew up with it.

Amp is Harman-Kardon Citation 22, 200W/side.

Pre amp is Nakamichi 610.

Empire 208 turntable.

Altec Lansing 15" 3 way speaker system.

Kinda old school, but adequate for what hearing I have left. Navy diesel engine rooms and many years of race bikes did me in.

Just for that smart-alec comment, I'm going to bore the hell out of you with this story:

My company sent my wife and me to Italy for 6 years, back in 1998. We traveled around quite a bit on weekends. One of those found us in Vienna. We soon found ourselves at the great concert hall there. OK, a little background info. I had studied the acoustics of concert halls as a minor in college, so I knew the Musikverein was right at the top of the heap.

Having no knowledge of hours or performances, I was just hoping to be able to get a quick peek at the inside of this great hall. Imaging my surprise when I found the ticket office open ~1 PM. I explained my desire, thinking how far in advance people had to get tickets. So it was a real shock when the ticket agent informed me that yes, I could take a look, but she still had two tickets left for a performance that started in a few hours, way up at the top of the upper balcony. Not good seats at all, but I wasn't about to complain.

I asked her what was playing, someting by Mozart (whose stuff I simply cannot handle) played by the visiting Hollywood 101 Strings? "Oh no, she said, it was the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra being conducted by the visiting Sir Simon Rattle". Now she had my full attention.

Hoping it wasn't going to be Wolfgang, I asked what was going to be performed. I nearly fell over as my knees got weak upon hearing "Beethoven's 4th and 7th symphonies"! I just could not believe our great luck. I bought the tickets, and the wife wanted to spend the waiting time looking around Vienna some more. Not a chance, I told her, we're waiting right here until seating time.

Finally after a few hours we were allowed to go to our seats. Then the light bulb went on. Told my wife I was going back to the lobby and see it they had any cancellations of seats already sold. As I entered the lobby, I saw a couple of women waving tickets over their heads, saying "tickets, tickets". I asked the closest one what she had and how she got them, and she explained she was a tour guide and some of the people on her tour didn't want to hear any concerts.

So, trying very hard not to appear too eager, I asked where the seats were. She looked at them, and said "I've only got two pair, one pair on the main floor and one near the center front of the lower balcony--the best seats in the house! WOW! Again trying my hardest to seem only mildly interested, I asked her how much she wanted. She gave me a very reasonable price, not knowing that at that moment, I would have paid a small fortune for them.

Tickets in hand, I rushed to the new seats and frantically waved to my wife way upstairs. She arrived about 2 minutes before the start of the 4th, of which the first 2 1/2 minutes is some of the best music I've ever heard.

BTW, the concert hall I studied most was the dreadful New York Philharmonic Hall, the hall with the 400 lb. plaster "clouds" installed for a little sound diffusion. This was shortly before Avery Fisher donated a few million $ to redo the interior, if they'd name it after him-allegedly, of course.

Why thank you Benesesso.
Finally, a post worth reading in this waste land of one-upmanship.

Bravo, Bravo!

That's because I was born in Newark, that Paris of the east coast.
