As before he always closes his eyes during play as in deep agony.  
 
The only change is he has few more grey hairs and wrinkles.

A bit of update.  
 
These days I am exploring normal household  
fullrange speakers from the 50s and 60s.  
 
My conclusion is people in the past really know what the are doing. I have been trying to add modern touch or add tweeter. None of my extra effort can improve the humble speaker without sacrificing something.  
 
Designers back then really floor me..

Shit! The cost of the plug of my power cable is more expensive than this combo.  
Yet according to some my so called hi-end system sounds horrible.  
I should have learned from Ben much earlier.

Doc, pls dont laugh at me. I always listen at whimpy level. When I use mini hifi, whimpy gets whimpier.... Soft soft soft.  
 
Yet, you listen at concert level...... If you listen to my kind of mini hifi, you can stretch out your arms and play catch when the drivers fly out.

Music in my living room is served by PC's media player. The collection has been ripped mainly from CD. Sound is very good indeed and it shuffles through the big collection hours on end without any hassle.  
 
It makes perfect background music, for free.

Actually I use computer speakers in one of my rooms too. Very musical indeed. Hook with computer and go youtube... Free and very cool entertainment. You have no idea what kind of odd stuff I like to watch. :)

Most of the time mini combos like these do sound tonally more balance than a lot of mix & match so called Hi End systems, problem only begins when you start turning up the volume.  
__________________________________________  
 
This is very true for mini-hifi. They cannot be turned up to loud volume. This is also why I always prefer mini fullrange than mini 2-way. Mini 2-way speaker's tweeter usually scream much much earlier and can be ear piercing. Where as for fullrange, when it struggles, you will know when to stop.

The even more amazing part is it actually sounds quite good at low volume. At least, it does not irritate me and knowing the price tag, I cannot help but grin everytime I hear it.

A bit of BS sharing as usual -  
 
These days, I am quite shocked with how expensive things related to the word "audiophile" can be.  
 
Yet, I am also amazed at how cheap and good some home appliances are. Especially, those that can play music.  
 
Probably what I am to share here is a taboo for some...  
 
I just got a mini hifi for $999. With this price, I get a full remote cd player, amp, radio, usb connect, a pair of speakers and one extra thing audiophiles dont even dare to dream of - a clock with timer! (No. $999 is not special sale.) The even more amazing part is it actually sounds quite good at low volume. At least, it does not irritate me and knowing the price tag, I cannot help but grin everytime I hear it.  
 
This also confirm one of my odd observations - Mini-hifi that cost less than $1000 can be nice. $1000 seems to be the watershed line as anything beyond may imply a 2-way speaker instead of a humble little fullrange in a small humble box....  
 
For those that are as "moliu" as I am, fortress is a fun place to go visit once in a while. Home appliances can be much better these days.

回覆 (338): Fender Stratocaster Hall-of-fame
Hi Kris,  
 
Thanks for the info. Wow....  
 
Actually, I am far from a rocker or a guitar guy. I know nothing about it or how to play it.  
 
I just wanted to get one to know what it is all about and to try to do some modifications to see what I can do. This is no different from me getting a cello and then try to tweak it and do some carpenter works. Knowing and breaking can be fun.  
 
You should know how "mo liu" I am.

Dear Rockin-Ben,  
 
As a die-hard Strat fan since late 60s, I was delighted to learn that you've now joined the crusade of Hendrix, Blackmore, Beck, Clapton, May, Van Halen & many others.  
 
Here's one of most famous and unique of all Strats - the 1963 Stevie Ray Vaughn (SRV). The neck was later changed to a 1962 D-shaped neck (fattest neck Fender made) and nicknamed  "Number 1" after Stevie Ray's first wife.
