Friends here should know I am usually full of shit and contradiction.

Ben, your sense of humor is wonderfully rare - dry and delicious!  
 
I totally agreed, "full of shit and contradiction" appears to be the norm these days among audiophiles. Thanks for shedding a light on it! The other wonderful quality about you is your photography. Like your writing, always honest & subtle with full compliment to the story. Never loud and obnoxious.  
 
Here's one of my favorites.....

Ben,  
 
If time allow, take a look of This year Chopin Society program. You should not miss the 2/11 program

Hi Daiwok,  
 
You are absolutely right. With the reliability and durability of stuffs at my place, I wont be surprised one day only the current mid driver will work. By then, I will use it as fullrange again...  
 
The latest threat to my system -

Hi Doc,  
 
It is hard to imagine me using Tannoy one day. The pre-requisite for me for any speaker is that it should be able to driver me crazy or how can I kill time late at nite...

Ben,  
 
Always admired your attitude.  
Get rid of the horn? Congratulation!  
No Tannoy ? Another big congratulation!

Hi Friends,  
 
A bit of update -  
 
Friends here should know I am usually full of shit and contradiction. Being a horn user for some time, I was the first one to complain about "horn sound". These days, all my horns gradually retired one by one. With one way missing, I had to be creative and shoved in whatever drivers I have lying around. This was a big project...  
 
Long story short, I think my system has the best bang for the buck in terms of time killing. I don't need to spend much in upgrading or changing gears. Each day, I end up spending hours just turning this knob, that knob, move things around. Plus side is I need not lie to my wife about cost of my new toys as I have none. Minus part is I am more confused than ever. Luckily, I have pretty low standard in hifi listening and can be easily pleased.  
 
I guess my hifi journey's destination is getting either way beyond reach or vanished. :-(  
 
My current setup -

Its a pity that Yo Yo Ma does not -re-record Bach. His playing is getting very delicate and rich these days. Hope he will return to classical repertoire soon.

Icefox,  
Thanks for better link. Indeed what you say is so true. Back before I got sucked into hifi, I was happy with my discman and boombox. Now, I am struggling just to get the sound marginally acceptable by myself.  
 
The irony is that with boombox, I drew lots of wrong conclusion with music/musicians back then. With better equipment, I realised some of the artists I used to feel "indifferent" became amazingly good.  
 
Hifi and music appreciation are very much tied together... This also confuse me more than ever. Who knows if the artists I now like may drop out from my favorite list later when I change equipments again....  
 
A never ending confusion .....a confusing conclusion.... a non-concluding conclusion.....  
 
 
 
Thomas and Derek,  
Glad that you like the clip as well. This clip will be much treasured by me. The funny thing is that once these 2 fellows got the recognition or fame they deserve, their magic would most likely be lost.... Just like Paul Potts, his best clip is his first appearance. His later clips became more and more pro and turned pro. Yet, the more pro, the more uninteresting/untouching.... Bring back tobacco or spirits will help .... this is also why underground pubs can be so "spirited" at times.

"Feel" is everything! Nothing else matters.  
______  
还记得许多年前的春天  
那时的我还没上PR1  
没有大Power胆机没有Maggie  
没有24小时热水的Den  
可当初的我是那么快乐  
虽然只有一个烂Walkman  
在街上 在桥下 在田野中  
唱着那无人问津的歌谣  
 
When the feel is right!!! ^___^

Great! absolutely agree with Ben that when the "feel" is right, nothing else matters. Lots of performers put too much emphasis on visual effects missing out the core element of a life performance. Talking about feel & mood, shame that tobacco & alcohol is a taboo on stage, when the performer is not involved, how can the music be involving.

还记得许多年前的春天  
那时的我还没剪去长发  
没有信用卡没有她  
没有24小时热水的家  
可当初的我是那么快乐  
虽然只有一把破木吉他  
在街上 在桥下 在田野中  
唱着那无人问津的歌谣  
 
如果有一天 我老无所依  
请把我留在 在那时光里  
如果有一天 我悄然离去  
请把我埋在 这春天里  
 
还记得那些寂寞的春天  
那时的我还没留起胡须  
没有情人节 没有礼物  
没有我那可爱的小公主  
可我觉得一切没那么糟  
虽然我只有对爱的幻想  
在清晨 在夜晚 在风中  
唱着那无人问津的歌谣  
 
也许有一天 我老无所依  
请把我留在 在那时光里  
如果有一天 我悄然离去  
请把我埋在 在这春天里 春天里  
 
你是这此刻烂漫的春天  
依然像那时温暖的模样  
我剪去长发留起了胡须  
曾经的苦痛都随风而去  
可我感觉却是那么悲伤  
岁月留给我更深的迷惘  
在这阳光明媚的春天里  
我的眼泪忍不住的流淌  
 
也许有一天 我老无所依  
请把我留在 在那时光里  
如果有一天 我悄然离去  
请把我埋在 在这春天里  
 
如果有一天 我老无所依  
请我留在 在这春天里  
如果有一天 我悄然离去  
请把我埋在 在这春天里 春天里

Actually, I agree too.... Just that I expected to have backup for vintage stuff but not "new" stuff.
